“I wanted a plaque for my nurse who was retiring, but I did not think of it until a few days before the party,” -David Smith, Medical Director at Bridge of Hope Resource Center for Women in Richmond, Missouri, tells us via Facebook.

“The PlaqueMaker people assured me they would get it to me on time, and they did. In a world of poor customer service, this company is a breath of fresh air. They did quality work and delivered what they promised. I will definitely do business with them again.”
