PlaqueWorks Review

Midnight was my best friend for 13 years. He was a black lab and corgi mixed breed mutt that I adopted as a puppy from the pound. He was my loyal companion and stood by me through many difficult life events. When he passed away in 2009 I was emotionally devastated. I tried for months to find a suitable memorial for my friend but nothing felt right so he remained always on my mind but never memorialized properly.

I recently was introduced to PhotoPlaque and it hit me that this is exactly what I have been searching for to create a memorial plaque for Midnight. I selected my most treasured photo taken on the last day that he was still able to run and fetch “like the wind.” On that day Midnight was a young pup for just long enough for me to snap this photo and not a hobbled old 13 year old dog. I uploaded the photo to PhotoPlaque, selected the background design and added my personalized caption. It was that simple and within minutes I had checked out and confirmed that my order would soon be on its way.

When my PhotoPlaque arrived it was perfect and instead of feeling sad, I was once again overcome with joy remembering my beloved pup. Even my children who only have vague memories of Midnight immediately called out his name and shared some of their own fond memories of my “first child.” I hung my PhotoPlaque where I can see it every day and remember all of the special times we shared during his life. The quality of the PhotoPlaque was much better in real life then online and the attention to detail really makes this a lovely piece.

PhotoPlaque is a perfect gift for so many occasions including commemorating a special anniversary, birthday, wedding, graduation, babies, sports achievements etc. The list is really endless for the PhotoPlaque that you could make to have a personalized treasure.

I was very impressed with the PhotoPlaque concierge feature who is ready to assist by phone, live chat or email to make sure that your creation is exactly what you had in mind and turns out perfectly.
