My nameplate came this past week. After searching the Internet and coming up with endless boring nickle plated nameplates, or really expensive nice ones I decided to give Etsy.com a try. I found a shop called smallpackages that makes names cut out of steel, which they were advertising for a nursery. After contacting the seller, they were able to make me a monogram in the same method.
The nameplate for my tack trunk
The center letter in the monogram is 3.5 inches in height, and the smaller letters are 2 inches in height. I threw the dollar bill in for perspective, and the whole thing is sitting on my mahogany dining table. The contrast will be a bit more subdued on my tack trunk with it's lighter stain finish. I can't wait to see it go on. All we are waiting for now are the gas shocks to arrive. I can't wait to see it all finished.
