Even a hurricane couldn’t ruin this surprise.

Anthony is a defense contractor for the U.S. Army. He wanted to show his appreciation for the soldiers who work with him in a special way. “I needed a plaque ASAP, and the local stores were too pricey for what I wanted,” he tells us.

Searching online, Anthony finds and designs what he wants himself. “The online tools provided by PlaqueMaker made this super easy. The price was right and the product shipped very fast.”

What was Anthony looking for? He wanted a personalized memento the troops could take with them to their next assignment. Anthony says, “The soldiers I work with are always helpful to the Systems Administration office and never question when effort is needed. I wanted to give them just a little something more than the usual to show them the appreciation they deserve.” So, he designs a custom plaque that includes a remnant of a destroyed hard drive, their name, job and dates served.

“Everyone loves it,” Anthony reports. “The quality is excellent.”

Passing the Unexpected with Flying Colors

Anthony’s package is delivered and left outside right after he and his family must evacuate their home due to Hurricane Matthew. “After a few days of being left out in the elements, I opened the package and dried the contents off with a paper towel,” he says. “The product looked good as new! No stains, no water damage, no issues with the text.”
