After moving to the Ponce Inlet area, our customer noticed there wasn't a local veterans' memorial. So, he took it upon himself to organize its construction. With the enthusiastic support of the local community and veterans' groups, this beautiful memorial was constructed in the Kay & Ayres Davies Lighthouse Park, adjacent to the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station.

We are well pleased with our plaque, and want to say thank you for all your cooperation and attention from start to finish. We are proud to honor our ancestor with this beautiful work of art.

Please express our thanks to those responsible for getting the job done on time. We would not hesitate to tell others of the integrity and craftsmanship to accomplish this impressive memorial to our ancestor, Isaac Willis, Company G, 73rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, from the tiny village of Limerick, Ohio who is now resting in the National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Even if decades have passed since they last served, it is never too late to recognize and memorialize local residents for their service in the United States military.

Unique Features: Custom soldier graphic and two-tone technique.

Designer's Notes:

Notice the soldier graphic actually has minimal details, yet your mind fills in the missing information. This special two-tone photographic technique (called Flat Relief) is a great way to maintain the accuracy of a photograph without getting into more costly photo-reproduction processes. While it isn't suitable for every image, most can be very successfully converted to meet the requirements of traditional sand casting. - Danielle



For your viewing I am attaching photos from the extensive memorial dedication ceremony in France where the memorial plaque for my father was dedicated by the French people of the two small villages where he died in 1944.

Please accept my sincere thanks for all you and your company did for me. From my simple layout suggestion, you applied wonderful imagination and design skills to produce the perfect memorial to my father. I was confident from the outset that the results would be good. They were outstanding. Everyone was quite impressed with the simple beauty of the memorial.

You did the work under great time constraints, and met every deadline you set for yourself, then you delivered the finished plaque a day early. While this was not an inexpensive undertaking for me, I believe the value received was exceptional. Everyone who has seen the plaque compliments you.

I can tell you I will be spreading the word to others in the American WWII Orphans Network that Innovative Signs is the place to go for military memorial plaques.

Thank you.

Throughout high school, college, and his military career, 1st Lt Gentz set goals, pursued them relentessly, and fully achieved them - receiveing many honors and awards along the way.

His goal of becoming a Combat Rescue Officer, for example, required two years of grueling training, and turning down an offer of a pilot's slot.

It should be no surprise, then, that his Air Force ROTC Detachment at Purdue University wanted not only to honor and memorialize Joel, but to make their recognition permanent. This plaque was created to fulfill that purpose.

When all of this plaque's inscription information was presented to us, it looked overwhelming.

Like many World War II veterans, Bob Brown doesn't consider himself to be a hero. According to his hometown newspaper, the Vevay Reveille Enterprise: "...he sees his military service as a call to duty, a time of his life when he answered the call of his country and proudly served it."

Or, in Bob's own words: "You're just trying to do what they told you to do and do it to the best of your ability. That's all you can do. You got your orders on what to do and you did it."

For service to his country during World War II, Bob was honored with the Audie Murphy Award in Washington, DC. in 2011. These plaques were made to commemorate that event, and feature the story from his hometown newspaper.

Designer's Notes:

It would have been very easy to simply use the newspaper's story as it was, and send this plaque off to production. Much too easy, and rather bland. However, after reading Mr. Brown's first-hand account of his D-Day experience, and his other World War II memories, we knew Alumicolor™ was the perfect material for bringing his story to life. It allowed us to place scenes and graphics behind the article, enriching each reader's experience as this story unfolds for them. - Danielle
