Plaqueworks.com Review and Giveaway

PlaqueWorks is a new, easy-to-navigate, online photo gift retailer that allows you to take special life-changing moments – weddings, anniversaries, birth announcements, birthdays, family reunions, and photos with Santa – and turn them into beautiful pieces of art that will last a lifetime. You can design your very own PhotoPlaque using the latest in technology AND include a personal inscription to make it even more special.

The process is simple:  Log on to Plaqueworks.com, choose your photo and your PhotoPlaque design; add in your personal inscription and violĂ …your personal PhotoPlaque is complete.   

PlaqueWorks also offers a free Plaque Concierge service to help you create and customize pieces for you and everyone on your gift list.  Don’t know what words to add in the personal inscription…the Plaque Concierge can even help you find just the right words to include on your plaque at no extra charge.

PlaqueWorks PhotoPlaques range from $49 to $99.  Below is a sampling of what one can make:

I felt the entire process was a breeze and very easy to make a plaque.    I received this offer right after my beloved dog Trixie passed away.  So I thought what better way to remember her then to have a beautiful Photo Plaque of her.  
 
We just got in the mail yesterday and it is beautiful. We immediately hung it on the wall in between the kids' room where she used to lay and watch over them  It is high quality and I would definitely order another one again.  These are perfect for Weddings, Graduations, Memorials, Christmas, new babies and more.  

The only issue I had was shipping.  The site does states: As soon as you click the Complete Order button, your plaque will go straight into production. It is then shipped within 2-4 days of order placement.

I placed my order and got my confirmation.  So I expected it to arrive in about a week.  It took 3 weeks to arrive.  After not hearing anything I contacted customer service and a rep emailed me back and apologized, he stated mine was being shipped that day.  It did not...  3 days later I actually got an email that my order was complete and set to ship soon. Then 3 days later it arrived.

Please don't take my one bad experience with shipping as a reflection of the company.  They honestly could of been backlogged or something.  I do wish the CS rep would of been straight forth with me, I was just wanting to know what the status was... If it was not ready to ship, he should of said so, or gave me a time line.  I just did not want it sitting in the snow, so I had been on the look out for it.  Plaqueworks.com is a company that makes quality products that will last a life time, so please remember that!  With my reviews I want to be honest and give you my readers my 100% honest feelings.

With that being said onto the Giveaway!!!
