Well, it came today, just as planned, and we love it! Great job.

Appreciate the professional operation you are running for this sort of thing. Once in a lifetime, so to speak.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone involved with the company for such a wonderful plaque that was created for Correy Lee.

We had Correy's memorial plaque dedication at the high school today and the plaque was praised by everyone.

Everyone that was involved in helping me choose the plaque was so amazed by how much the plaque looked exactly like the pictures the art department sent to me. We are especially impressed with how well the picture of Correy turned out. I am so glad we went with the color picture.

Thank you for making something that will help Correy's memory live on forever at the school. It is very hard when such a young life is lost and this will help her family, friends, teammates and coaches with this loss.

We are very grateful.

Thank you,

Gretchen Martin Roswell, GA

Hello, Audrey, Cynthia & Lisa !

We received our plaques this morning...SPECTACULAR!

We have already placed them on our 2 properties and they look outstanding. We will probably order another for our home for our specific historic district but won't do that until after the new year. I don't have any doubt that our neighbors will be ordering as well.

I certainly want to thank you for your kindness & efficiency in processing our order. We received the plaques in plenty of time before the holiday tour.

Again, thank you so much for your help and for the fabulous plaques!

I hope you and your families and co-workers have a wonderful Thanksgiving & holiday season!

Hello Cynthia, and all who helped along the way!

This is a slightly belated note say THANK YOU beyond belief at how fabulous these plaques are and how happy everyone is! Now that our pioneers have worked out all the kinks (all on our end - none on yours!) we are ready to roll! This Plaque Program is something Sacramento can truly be proud of, and our friends in Franklin have made this happen. Thank you and thank you again! We really look forward to making this plaque program roll now!


I wish you could have heard the barrage of people - more than your realize - on this end saying how fortunate we were to be working with Franklin Bronze, for so many reasons... If not for you and your willingness to develop this program with us, and keep it reasonable for regular people, I really don't see how we could have made this happen so successfully! Everybody here is cheering Franklin Bronze Plaques!

Dear Lisa,

It was a pleasure working with you on my brother-in-laws plaque, you professionalism and your patience was very much appreciated.

I just wanted to send you a little note and tell you that we had our stockholders meeting last night with the presentation of the plaque. It was so incredible. EVERYONE there could not believe how much you guys captured Carl on that plaque. There was not "one" person who could find fault with anything - even our most critical employee was in "awhhh" at what a great job you guys did. Of course, they were giving me credit but I told everyone that you all deserved the credit. Your artist is just amazing!!!! Carl's wife came in again this morning and is still crying at how much it really looks like Carl. We all thank you for the great job you did for us. Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved. Also, I am having our photographer take some photos and I will get one up to you for display. I got it approved from Mrs. Jones to send you a copy. She was delighted to do so.

I just received the plaque and it is beautiful! I would like to thank you and your organization for your professionalism and your patience. Steve Clark was loved by everyone and this plaque is a fitting tribute to his memory.

Thank you very much,
