  • Hi,

    I am after a large metal plaque to place on the front of a letter box. It will be exposed to the elements.

    I require it to be 15cm x 95.5cm and have the words 26 Goldingham written on it in basic arial font. Are you able to provide such a product and if so what would be the cost?

    Thank you,


    Caitlin Melmeth on
