Check out this customized steel plaque we built for a retired Marine Major! Military branch emblem, rank insignia, qualification emblems and slogan were all added to personalize this very showy piece. The eagle stands off the flag one inch adding a 3 dimensional component to the design. Every one we do like this turns out a little different; the patina brings out the uniqueness in each piece of steel and the flag and eagle are hand painted with metal stains and acrylic paint. The coloring on this thing is enough to turn heads, but we added a light panel behind it, which makes the lettering flat-out glow!
