    I used to have a guy make them, but had to drive alittle ways. I just started using Van Dykes and they are great.

    I have used him for years. I like to fax him 10-12 at a time and Ken usually has the nameplates back to me within a day or two. His prices are reasonable.

    Van Dykes for the brass ones. I have started using wooden ones that I think look a lot better from Ted at Antlers 2 Fins.

    only $2.65, shipped!

    Here is the link for an engraver I have used through ebay. During the holidays I ordered some and it took about 3 weeks to get them. I do not know if it would be faster than that now, however. But they were simply beautiful and they are engraved with the font and color of your choice and only $2.65, shipped!

    Brass name plates are nice but I always inform my customers that they reflect . while black/white or other colored name plates do not amd are easier to read.just a thought!

    The laser engraved wood ones just look more natural on most things to me. I tried them and really like them better.
