The plates can be decorated in a variety of ways, centre only, centre and plus outer rim, and also with printing on the back in the form of historical or informative text and limited edition numbering. 22ct gold or platinum silver lines on the rims and edges is an additional option.

Historical and informative text on the back of the plate ensures that the memory of the event lives on through the ensuing years, and limited edition numbering lends extra value for the future collectors of memorabilia.

Artwork can be in the form of hand drawings to computer artwork and photos. Black and white, sepia or colour photographs can also be reproduced, and we can offer a comprehensive and competitive artwork service. 

A minimum print run is usually 25 plates. 

We can quote for fewer.

One-off plates

We are often asked if we produce one - off printed plates, or smaller print runs rather than the print runs of 25+ for which we normally quote. The answer is yes, but bear in mind that a one off and lower quantities carry the cost of the initial artwork (£35 - £55) and studio print set up (£45 - £55) before the cost of plate production, postage and VAT.

So if you wish to have a quote bear this in mind. Even though it may seem expensive, remember, what you will have are original and unique pieces.
