Our Red Alder & Walnut Plaque, item number GAP810M, is made of solid genuine wood. The plaque has superior craftsmanship and the grain of the wood is part of the appeal. The deep set beveled edges add a classy touch. The genuine red alder color on top of the dark brown walnut background makes the engraving section of this plaque really pop. It will be sure to catch the eye of anyone near it, continually giving the honoree a reason to be proud when their award is noticed. The GAP810 plaque is 8" x 10", while the GAP912 is 9" x 12" in size. The engraving area is quite large, which gives you plenty of room to customize this plaque and have a lengthy message if you want one. Alternately, you could also display larger print size, which may be an excellent choice if your recipient is elderly or has difficulty reading smaller print.
