HOW DO I GO ABOUT CUSTOMIZING MY ORDER?
WHAT IS YOUR WARRANTY?

During the life of your keepsake, you can send it in for a FREE polish. Shipping costs to and from our location is your responsibility for the polishing.
HOW FAST CAN YOU CREATE A CUSTOM AWARD OR KEEPSAKE?
WHAT IS BRONZING?
Bronzing is a process in which an item is encased in a layer of pure copper. The copper is first oxidized and then polished to achieve a lustrous shine thus creating a lasting and memorable keepsake. Items that are silver and gold plated are first bronzed; then the requested finish is plated on top.
HOW DO I KNOW THAT WHAT I’M ORDERING IS GENUINE METAL?
Many companies promote “bronzing” when in fact all they are doing is painting your keepsake. These companies add trace amounts of copper (or any other color) pigment to a lacquer or resin base and essentially dip or paint your item a “bronze” color. To ensure that your item is being plated with solid metal, look for the word “electroplated.” This is the only word that means genuine metal plated. We use an electroplating process and offer a Forever Shine Guarantee.
WHAT CAN BE BRONZED?
We can plate almost anything that can fit into our tanks; however, the following items don’t plate very well:
- Stuffed animals (unless we can remove the stuffing)
- Certain food items
- Certain plant items
- Certain paper or cardboard products
- Items that are extremely buoyant
