PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each RCEME Badge Plate begins as a clear glass plate which becomes transformed into an exceptional, high quality keepsake. With many complex steps from start to finish, the creation process poses a high degree of difficulty. The delicate procedures result in the brilliantly rich crackle which receives and illuminates light and provides a unique element of depth to each piece. These remarkable heirlooms are rendered individually by Bonnie, with all processes administered on the backside of the glass.
Each 8" plate is framed in a black, 11"open faced solid wood shadow box lined with red ultra suede. Two custom engraved black plaques which sit on the frame add a personalized touch to these mementos, which can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand. Included is a bilingual Certificate of Authenticity that is signed by Bonnie Saunders and applied to the backside of the frame. This certificate contains a brief description of the mission of the proud members who wear the badge or crest that is featured on the front of the plate. This is a great added feature for future generations to appreciate.
FOR THE PERSONALIZED ENGRAVED PLAQUES THAT SIT ON THE FRAME:
Bonnie recommends highlighting the rank/regimental number and name of the recipient on the smaller plaque. The second, larger engraved plaque provides an opportunity to include 3 additional sentences to better commemorate an occasion or words of choice. This is very important, as it will pass on historical details for future generations. There is a 60 character maximum for each sentence. Bonnie is happy to help you so the wording is perfect for the occasion.

TESTIMONIALS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!June 13, 2011
Just wanted to let you know the plate arrived today. It is beautiful. I had not told my husband about it so it was a complete surprise to him. He was totally taken away by it and was really impressed. He was so happy it was the RCEME and not the new EME. After spending so many years in the military, this is a wonderful tribute to him. Thanks so much Bonnie. It is very nice. I am enclosing a pic of my very happy husband and he says "Thanks a million. Might order another at a later date." He was also with the Airborne.

Here is a photo of Mike holding his badge plate he received for Christmas. He knew as soon as he unwrapped the paper what it was, and his hands began to shake when he opened the box. He was beyond speechless and moved to tears when he saw the plate with the RCEME Badge. It is absolutely beautiful! Thank you!"

"Cpl.(ret) AC Nicholls is very proud of his RCEME plate. With Bonnie’s help we were able to keep the ordering a secret from him. He was very surprised to receive his treasure on his birthday in November 2011."

"Bonnie, thanks for the fantastic plates! After 40 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces I retired on 13 February 2019 and was formally presented with these in honour of my service. Col Nishika Jardine, an old friend and fellow member of RCEME, presented the Corps plate, and LCol Gabriel Dore, Commanding Officer RCSU (Central), presented the CIL plate.
The senior staff of RCEME were highly impressed with the corps plate and are interested in looking to make this part of their routine retirement presentations. If you are interested I'll pass on your contact information to them."
Lieutenant-Colonel (Ret'd) Charles Jansen
