Some of our National Register plaques (mostly the more elaborate designs) are fixed size - that is, they are cast from an existing pattern. These ornate fixed size plaques are
more cost effective than other designs but the text must
fit on the standard sizes available.
Others, can be manufactured
in any size that you require.
Below are images of some of the more frequently used wordings and designs for these bronze plaques.
National Register Plaques are placed on buildings that are listed in the National Register of Historical Places.
Some of the images use the phrase "This
Property Has Been Placed On The National
Register of Historical Places". Others use the phrase "This Property Has Been Listed
In The National Register of Historical Places". It is up to you as to which phrasing you prefer.
When we last looked, the National Park Service web site stated,
"As far as phrasing is concerned, the National Register
has no formal requirements or suggestions..." Therefore,
we are pleased to customize your plaque with the text you
desire. We do recommend that if you are purchasing a plaque
describing listing in a local register of Historic Places,
that you verify the plaque wording that they may require.
So as not
to affect the decorative images on these National Register plaques and
to provided added security, we customarily provide them with hidden boss
and stud mounting. They
are also available with other mounting hardware as explained here.
These plaques are available for purchase at
