Hi, everyone.
Who do you use to make name plates for your dioramas? Just the local trophy shop or is there someplace online which is good?
Thnk you for any suggestions!

For our club projects we use PowerPoint and heavy gloss paper glued to a plastic sheet lined with a sharpie. http://www.ipmseaglesquadron.org/ES-gallery/index.php?cat=2

In the years before the internet I used a local trophy shop.

I found this site. Never used them but seems reasonable.
