Circuit boards

Are these “real” circuit boards?

Yes! Our circuit boards are made in the same facilities that manufacture electronics products for tech industries such as computers, phones, gaming consoles, toys, and even commercial aircraft (IPC Class 2-A600 conformance).

Can you design a circuit board in a different size or shape?

Unfortunately, no. It would be cost prohibitive to make a new size or shape for a single plaque or sign due to the amount of time it takes to make major changes.

I have an idea for a new circuit board design. Would you like to hear about it?

Absolutely! We are always open to new ideas. Please EMAIL us and share your thoughts!

Can circuit boards be displayed outdoors?

No. They can be displayed indoors only.

Can I order an accessory separately?

No. During the ordering process, you will be given the option of adding accessories to your order. If you do not add them at that time, we cannot ship them separately later.

Wood bases

What are the bases made out of?

The bases are made from MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) wood with a wood finish foil. They are premium quality and have built-in mounting slots in the back for easy wall mounting.

I want to order an 8x10 plaque. Is that the size of the wood base or the circuit board?

That is the size of the wood base. Circuit boards will be one inch narrower (height and width) than the wood base. For example, an 8×10 plaque will have an 8×10 wood base and a 7×9 circuit board. The only exception is a nameplate- it will be exactly 2×8 to fit standard 2×8 nameplate holders.

Is wall mounting hardware included?

Yes! A mounting hardware kit is included with every plaque order which includes a drywall anchor, mounting screw, and simple instructions.

Can I order a plaque without a wood base?

Sure! When placing your order, let us know that you don’t want a wood base in the Special Instructions section.

images

What types of images can I use?

Please click HERE for more information about images.

How do I add my own logo or image?

There is an “Add Image” option when you’re customizing your circuit board. Images and logos should be PNG files with transparent backgrounds. Once your image is added, you can change the color to match the silver color of your text, clipart, etc.

I can't find the right image for my design. Are there any more choices?

Absolutely! Go to https://publicdomainvectors.org and do a search. There are hundreds of images you can download for free. Just make sure they are black PNG images with a transparent background. If you’re looking for something in particular, EMAIL us and we’ll be happy to help you find it!

Some of the clipart images appear blurry. Will they look that way on my circuit board?

No. Some of the clipart images get magnified and only appear blurry online. They will be crisp and clear on your circuit board.

designing

Do I have to use a pre-made template or can I create my own design from scratch?

You may create your own design from scratch by using a blank template when designing your circuit board using our online designer.

Can I use a different font that isn't listed?

Yes! Send us an EMAIL and let us know which font you would like to use and we will add it. If you have a custom font, please EMAIL it to us. We can usually accommodate most custom fonts.

Will I get a proof of my design before you make it?

No. You will be able to design every detail of your circuit board using our online designer.

What shipping method do you use?
