    I have seen many different style's at different shows and was wondering where do you get them made from? usually they are just etched aluminum plates with the year make and model on them.  I could have the machine shop make some for me but it would be time consuming for them and time is money! Does anyone know of a good reasonable place to get something like this made and how much I should expect to pay?

Are you talking about actual Tractor Show plaques, or personal tractor plaques for your tractors?

  Personal plaques for my own machines is what I am looking for.

Are there any sign shops in your area? Maybe graphic arts and printing? We have a guy in Ohio that travels the show circuit and makes them onsite. I think the ones that are like big fridge magnets are nice.

I now get mine from "Sign Ma of Ohio":   https://signmano.eag...eshop/index.cgi

 

The one on the yellow 70 I came from him, the others from:   http://tractorsigns.com/

Magnetic strips are usually supplied with the plastic signs.  ~~  Lowell

There are usually local shops that do engraving. Places that make bowling and baseball trophies.
