My brother Christopher, who served in the Navy, posted this quote on his Facebook page today. I loved it so much, I wanted to share it here and say thank you. Thank you to all military personnel, serving, retired and no longer with us, for your selfless acts & for safeguarding our freedom. We don’t thank you enough.

Those who live today remember those who do not. Those who know freedom remember today those who gave up life for freedom.

Today, in honor of the dead, we conduct ceremonies. We lay wreaths. We speak words of tribute. And in our memories, in our hearts, we hold them close to us still. Yet we also know, even as their families knew when they last looked upon them, that they can never be fully ours again, that they belong now to God and to that for which they so selflessly made a final and eternal act of devotion.

– Ronald Reagan

Home Is Where My Horse Is

myhorseWe’re slowly adding new products to our, “Home is where…” category. However, this is one of our favorites, so we’ve added it to the site a bit early.

Since we make each plaque to order, we can take special requests and change things here & there. For example, we know many of you have more than one horse, so we can modify these plaques to take the plural form, “Home is where my horses are…” Most simple requests, like taking it plural, are free of charge. What’s not to love here?

Last week brought some changes to Family Plaque, namely that we are no longer Family Plaque. We are now, “Family Plaques & More.”  After surviving a period where many companies went out of business, it became clear to me that Family Plaque stuck around for a few reasons:

  1. We focused on quality products
  2. We were not over-leveraged
  3. We took the time to listen to & please our customers

These three statements may seem like no-brainers to most, but you’d be surprised how far they can take a business (and how many businesses don’t incorporate them into their operating philosophies). And as we move forward, we are still focused on these guidelines, #2 in particular.  The “More” I’m talking about in our new name will be an expansion of our quality offerings – which our customers have asked for - but all in time. We are not going to buy a lot of inventory and add it to the website all at once, but rather, we’ll research new products, see what our customers think, and then add them slowly, in limited quantities, and monitor their performance over time.

We could use your help during this, “More” phase.  Join us on Facebook, where we add photographs of potential products & ask for feedback.  You can also subscribe to our Newsletter and get quarterly updates about what we’re working on, customer specials we’re offering, and…well…more!

I’m not big on change, but this is a change I’m excited about & that I owe a large amount of thanks for. To all of Family Plaque’s customers, new & old, thank you. You are the reason we have stayed in business & are able to expand our business today. We’re excited to have you join us as we move forward. So… goodbye Family Plaque, hello Family Plaques & More!
