Who wouldn’t love to see their name in lights?
We are a military family and it is hard to find cool gifts that show someone how proud we are of them,” says Kori Cioca, who served in the U.S. Coast Guard. “There aren’t many military gifts we don’t have or haven’t seen.”
Until Kori spotted lighted plaques on the internet. “I filled out many quotes from different companies. PlaqueMaker got back with me the next day,” she tells us. “It took the other companies almost a week!” She needed a gift plaque for her husband’s birthday ASAP –which is something PlaqueMaker specializes in. “I called customer service, and it was the easiest, kindest customer service, which made me even more confident in my purchase.”
Kori’s order arrived in time for her husband’s birthday – a U.S. Coast Guard-themed lighted plaque from his first station on an ice breaker in the Great Lakes.
After that, Kori’s gift for gifting was born.

Everyone wanted one, not just for military but for their sports teams or hobbies,” she says. “My brother displays his plaque with all his awards and pictures from deployments. It adds the level of ‘hardcore’ the display needs, seeing his name, company and SEAL insignia glowing in the middle.” The unique plaque is a conversation starter, admired by everyone who sees it – “and is always a reminder of his service to this country and how proud of him we are,” Kori says.
For the Person Who Has It All … or Just a Little Bit
PlaqueMaker’s LED Light-Up Signs use LED technology to light up each frosted personalization on clear acrylic. The plaques are available in a variety of shapes and the white, red, blue or green lights can be powered by the included 12-foot corded wall plug or AC battery pack.
Kori designs her personalized LED Light-Up Sign gifts herself. “PlaqueMaker has so many different (military) emblems to choose from! I was looking for a military script to use on my plaque and when I couldn’t find it, I asked for it and PlaqueMaker made it happen.”
Everyone in her family gets excited about getting one of Kori’s gifts. “It never fails that I give the best gift,” she says. “The recipient is so grateful. It makes me feel so good to see the gift that I gave proudly displayed in a main area of their home.”
Kori tells us one of her relatives is getting a light-up plaque for Christmas … no spoiler alert here, because we’ll never tell! Kori says, “Easy gift idea, affordable and personal – can’t get any better than that!”
