We recently went on the trip of a lifetime touring Europe and the UK and whilst on the trip we found some great new plaques for the house. We are both mad crazy Raiders fans so when we came across this company that created soccer signs that had you house name and number on them we asked if they could feature any ball team.
They could not do it in the shop we found them but as it was a special request they did put us in touch with their supplier and when we made contact they directed us to a website to get the signs custom made. A quick look and we were amazed by the amount of choice you had but as ours was a bespoke job they took all the details over the phone and helped us buy them through the website so we could track our order on our travels.
We were helped enormously by the great guy on the phone and we even got the chance to talk Football or as he called it soccer another favourite of ours when we are back home.
He went through all our ideas and explained what could and could not be done and also made a load of suggestions for improvements on what we had in mind and after a good hour on the phone he said they would create the design and be in touch with a visualisation of what it would look like when completed.
Raiders plaques design was a first
Within a few days John had indeed come back to us and with something that we were both so happy with. It looked a million dollars and all the extra time spent and advice taken really shone through in the design. Even the tricky logo looked amazing and we just hoped that this level of details would carry through to the slate version of the plaques once they were created. Again John put our minds at rest and said they would look terrific once done and that within 2 weeks the signs would be ready to take home.
We were the first customers of theres with a NFL Plaques customers and even that gave us a buzz although he did say they have sent lots of different house signs all over the world including America but not one Raiders one!
Welsh slate plaques no less
Now you can probably pick these up in the states and get a similar thing done but one of our favourite parts of the trip was a week spent touring Wales and climbing Snowdonia and as these new signs were made of the finest Welsh slate they have even more significance to us.
They said they would courier them to our house in LA and even though we were nervous they would get damaged on the long trip we need not have been as they arrived safely and looked even better than the visual we had signed off a few weeks ago!
