PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each IAFF Crest 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 Certificate of Authenticity (bilingual if required) 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.
Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders is an Approved Vendor by the IAFF.
When you purchase an IAFF Badge Plate, not only are you investing in a very unique heirloom, you are also supporting the many men and women who serve to protect us. A portion of each sale will be contributed towards an IAFF Charitable Fund.
Be sure to have your camera ready! The proud recipients will be pleased beyond measure!

"Hello Bonnie! Here is a picture of Chris with his award to recognize his years of service with the Youngstown Professional Firefighters IAFF Local 312. He was genuinely appreciative and interested in where it came from - as did many others. I must admit that I am a little jealous of Chris!
