Step 1 Sales and Accounting Dept

You order starts here on it's journey through 38 different processing stations until completion. First step for your order is to be sent to accounting to be processed. Then, your order is entered into the system and moves to the art department to create the art for your approval. After you approve your art it's converted to a vector file and sent to the polymer dept to make the mold to put into the sand cast.

Once the plaque is removed from the sand casting the plaque now starts its journey on the conveyor belt thru 35 different stations. At each station an expert will apply different finishing touches. Each station has the ability and the obligation to reject any plaque that is not perfect in every way. No plaque is shipped until each person who has touched the plaque has approved the quality and then passed it down the line.
