I create a drawing of your pet, which you approve before I burn it on a 8"x8"x0.3" plaque. Plaques are finished with three coats of a protective satin clear seal. After placing your order, email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or text them to 720-432-9949. Please include your order number in the email/text. The Process: We create a drawing and email it to you for your approval - so watch your email! Upon approval, we begin engraving your plaque. Multiple coats of a clear satin finish are then applied. Once the finish is completely cured, your plaque is shipped via U.S.P.S. You will receive pictures and updates throughout the whole process. As an artistic process, it can not be rushed so please plan ahead for gift giving. Please allow 7-12 business days from approval for your order to be completed prior to shipping.
