PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each Sûreté du Québec 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.
When you purchase an Sûreté du Québec 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 the community foundation of the Sûreté du Québec
PLEASE NOTE: the two engraved plaques that sit on the frame to personalize it in honour of one's service can be done in French as shown:
Be sure to have your camera ready! The proud recipients will be pleased beyond measure!

For those of us in the military, when we go on tour, overseas, we trust that our families are safe at home in Canada.One of the main reasons they are safe, is that our Federal, Provincial, City and town police forces are keeping things safe.Guy and I started our careers at the same time in 1988. It was an honor to present him this Glass Treasure in appreciation for keeping us safe and for all the sacrifices that he made for his community.

March 8, 2019 "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
