A Gift to Cherish! Personalized Pet Plaques made by Treasured Friends! Enter to Win!

I was delighted and honored when I was contacted by Treasured Friends, asking if I would be interested in having a custom plaque made of Dakota in exchange for my honest review.

There is nothing I “treasure” more than items that are personalized and unique! Having my handsome Sheltie featured on a plaque that I will cherish for a lifetime, means the world to me!

About Treasured Friends—(from their website)

We understand the special bond between people and their animal companions. That’s why we create every personalized pet plaque individually, making each one as unique as the pet who inspired it. So whether you’re looking for a gift for a friend, a keepsake to celebrate the pet sitting next to you, or a memorial for one who has passed on, you can rest assured that your piece – like the pet it honors – is one-of-a-kind and will be cherished for years to come.

 

The plaque that I chose to have made was the Small Keepsake Plaque .

“Each plaque is made of elegant yet durable porcelain and printed with fade-resistant UV inks, ensuring your piece stays beautiful for years to come. In addition, it arrives ready to hang or display either in your home or in a sheltered area outside.

All plaques are customizable with a photo, name and optional date. Select designs may also be customized with up to 40 characters of text.”

(I chose the 12 inch by 6 inch portrait size). The process was super easy!  The ordering page has easy to understand steps. I submitted a photo (high-resolution photos are best, mine wasn’t high-resolution but my friend at Treasured Friends turned my less-than-perfect photo into a gorgeous piece of art using the “painterly” effect.) I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!

It wasn’t long until I received my proof…look at how incredibly GORGEOUS this is!

Once I gave my approval it wasn’t long before my plaque arrived!

I think that packaging is often as important as the product, and the packaging of my plaque did NOT disappoint! My plaque arrived wrapped with love, care and attention to detail.

When I opened it, I SQUEALED with delight! Look at my incredibly BEAUTIFUL PLAQUE!

Here is another shot from a different location (I still am deciding where I will put it), I am either going to buy a stand for the back or a hook to hang it in our dining room I believe.
