What a plaque says is important. The plaque lasts a lifetime or more, and the message is practically forever. Whether you choose an aluminum plaque or a bronze one, consider your message first.
Your plaque not only identifies you and your project, but it presents and promotes your message for a long time. What information should your plaque include?
Most plaques identify a name or organization, the reason for an event (often, the phrase TIME CAPSULE), date of event (or time capsule placement or dedication), and date of intended opening of the time capsule. It is popular to also put a logo, tag line or phrase if there is enough space. Read on for some examples of what others have said on their plaques.
