It is a well known law of economics
that states that you can only have 2 of the following ;
- Good Service - Low Price
We believe we offer the best of all three.
HIGH QUALITY - Bronze is forever!!! The
alloy bronze is created by melting down ingots of copper,
tin and lead in an 88/10/2 ratio. When
the name is preceded by another word or letter in its name,
real alloy. Faux bronze is NOT bronze. By definition,
Faux is "A French word meaning false, fake,
imitation or artificial." Bronze mixed with scrap
iron is not bronze and it will rust over
time. Metallic coated plastic made to look like bronze
is not bronze. Etched
zinc, faux bronze and bronze metallic coated plastic are
all products sold as low cost alternates to real bronze. When
new, many of these cheaper products look like real bronze and it
is almost impossible for the average consumer to tell the difference
between bronze and one of these imitation products. Some retailers
in order to make a sale will use these products and not openly
what their materials are and hope that in the 2 or so years
it takes for these products to deteriorate, the customer
will forget from whom it was purchased. While
these faux bronze products may be usable for your purpose,
they can not outlive real bronze.
GOOD SERVICE - Service is as important
as price and quality. What good is low cost and high
quality if the end result is late delivery or just plain
the supplier 'sold you what you asked for'. Service
not only includes being friendly when a customer places an
also includes the ability (and knowledge) to tell a customer
that something they are requesting may not be right and then
working with the customer to achieve a properly designed
product. Making a sale is not enough for the people
at The Bronze Plaque. We
must feel that the end product is the best possible
design and we are willing to put The Bronze Plaque name
LOW PRICE - Our prices are discounted. We
do not offer a low come on price and then add cost for each
character, item of hardware or delivery. Our prices
are complete. When you submit your on line quote request, you
will get a full and accurate quotation and a convenient link
for purchasing your plaque on-line. Even if you have
to change wording or mounting hardware after our quote, our
price will not change as long as the text still fits on the
same size plaque.
Remember - as in most things in the world today - You
get what you pay for.
ALL WE CAN DO IS PRESENT THE FACTS - IT IS UP TO
YOU TO MAKE THE CHOICE.
