PROUDLY PRODUCED IN CANADA!
Each Administration 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.

My wife Suzanne and son Sean and his family surprised me for my 50th birthday with magnificent plates for the Administration and Logistics Branches. I was exceptionally pleased with the plates and the plaques. The look fantastic in my new office and many people have remarked on the quality of your work. It’s very fitting that you set aside some of the profits for the Military Families Fund - thanks very much for all that you do.”

Here is the presentation to CPO1 Cleal on his retirement. He actually shed a little tear when I presented him the plates. He was very touched and has a wall picked out for them. Well done and many thanks."

"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."
