Name plaques are a great way to get a teen’s name displayed in an attractive and decorative way. Name plaques can be done by oneself, or purchased from a company that specializes in name plaques. Name plaques may include last names, first names, special groups the teen is interested in, sports teams, or anything else the teen is involved in.
When making a name plaque there are a few ways that it can be accomplished. First try going to a craft store and getting stickers made for the desired name. Then either buy or make a board to paint and then put the stickers on the board.
The board may need to be purchased first so that the size of the stickers can be the right size for the board. Paint the board a complimentary color for the room it is going to go in. When having the stickers made, it’s possible to choose from many different fonts and colors. Make it a fun name plaque that will draw the attention it needs.
Many times the stickers that are made in the craft store can be put one on top of the other. This can be especially fun and useful when making a name plaque that has a child’s name on it and the team they belong to with it. Put the team or dance club in large dark letters in the back. Then change the font and color and put the child’s name over the team or club. The name plaque will be striking to all who see it.
Another way to make name plaques is to make it a shadow box. This can become more than just a name plaque.

Shadow boxes are usually glass and are a fun way to show the name and subject inside. It gives a 3-D dimension look that can be complimentary to most any room decor.
One more way to make a name plaque is to get a good and nice piece of wood, metal or some other material and use decoupage. Decoupage is glue that is used to glue down mostly flat objects with out something like a frame covering them.
Make the name out of fabric, paper, pictures or anything else that is flat in nature. Then use the decoupage to adhere the name to the plaque.

They are typically somewhat personalized. Customers can choose from a limited choice of backgrounds and themes to go with the name plaque.
