Justice Integrity Service

This is the motto of the United States Marshals Service, an agency that has been serving our country for over 220 years, and has put away more fugitives, more criminals, than all other federal law enforcement agencies - combined. To put it mildly, they have a commanding presence.

When the agency needed a look that boldly communicated this presence, their product of choice was Engraved aluminum plaques. Each badge and seal is crafted from solid aluminum at a 20" diameter using agency graphics.

As stunning as they appear here, you should see them in person - as a visitor, of course, to one of their many regional offices. They look even better than these photos convey.

Designer's Notes:

The CNC Machine Engraving process is excellent for duplicating seals, because it allows us to retain almost all details in the original art. I especially enjoyed the badges portion of this project, however, because of how we removed the material between the star and the outer ring, just like a real badge. In fact, except for an attachment pin on the back side, these are essentially 20" diameter metal badges. - Jason
Evergreen_Train_Office_Engraved_Bronze_Government_Facility_Plaque

The historic Evergreen Train Depot, once part of the old L & N Railroad line, was built in 1907 when railroad transportation was king. It was quite ornate at the time, and was the only building in town with electricity.

After a complete renovation to restore its original beauty, the former train depot is now home to the Evergreen-Conecuh Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Office.

City of Evergreen dedicated their renovation with a plaque featuring an architectural drawing of the building, recognition of city leaders, and a special thank-you to those who were involved in the project. It is prominently displayed outside the main entrance.

WIth the expansion of their Farmers Korner North Plant, the Upper Blue Sanitation District more than doubled their capacity to process wastewater for residents of Breckenridge, Colorado.

It was a $27M project involving two new facilities, and this dedication plaque was installed to recognize the successful contributions of many individuals and companies.

Specifications
Plaque Type: Cast
Material: Bronze
Thickness: Approx. 3/8" return at borders
Approx. 1/4" in raised background
 
Border Style: Double-line

Unique Features: District seal at the top, plus the use of two different line widths on double-line border

Designer's Notes:

This is pretty straightforward, as city dedication plaques go. However, we always give these plaques as much professional styling as possible. This one prominently displays the district logo at the top, and the double-line border uses two different line widths for a more distinctive look. Also, notice there is an appropriate amount of "white space" present around the inscription so it doesn't overwhelm the plaque. - Gary

To adequately serve the rural residents of Sheridan, Wyoming, the Sheridan Area Rural Fire Protection District needed more space - much more than their previous location could accommodate - so a brand new facility was built.

After everything was complete, the final touch was this Etched zinc dedication plaque.

Specifications
Plaque Type: Acid Etched
Material: Zinc
Thickness: 1/8" in raised areas
Border Style: Single Line with Plain edge
Back of Plaque: Flat (solid zinc)
Raised Surfaces: Brushed Satin Zinc (silver)
Recessed Surfaces: Painted (black)
Texture in Recessed Area: Sand texture
Unique Features: Plain edge border outside the thin single line border.

Designer's Notes:

Because so many poeple were involved in this project and needed to be listed in an easy-to-read format, horizontal lines were used to visually separate and group them for the reader. For styling purposes, we also used a unique border that features a band of textured background area outside the raised single line. Finally, acid etching was the only manufacturing method that could reproduce the Fire District's maltese cross graphic in such fine detal.
Floyd_CU_Etched_Bronze_Government_Facility_Plaque

Picture yourself standing in the small town of Floyd, Virginia, just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's Friday night, and you can hear the unmistakable sound of Bluegrass music emanating from The Floyd Country Store. Nearby, there are wineries, art galleries, shops full of artists and craftsmen, a mill, and plenty of friendly people.

This town has style. Character.

The Town of Floyd captured this character perfectly in their logo, and their plaque was designed to complement and reinforce it in every way. They work beautifully together.

Designer's Notes:

The Town of Floyd, pop. 432, has a great logo. This is no mistake. It's a reflection of their small-town setting near the Blue Ridge mountains. A rectangular plaque would have worked just fine, but this shape added style and character that wasn't possible, otherwise. - Gary
