Laser Engraving inch pieces of tape on the back of the plate so you can remove the plate should it not go on straight or you get a call from your customer with a change after you have fin- ished the job. A small amount of tape is all that is needed and will still be difficult to remove without bending the plate. You can make a template out of a piece of sheet acrylic to place on the corner of the plaque as a guide for putting the plate on. You might also measure from the top and one side and mark your spots with small sticky notes. After a while you will find that you can line up a plate almost perfectly without any assistance. The key is making sure the plate looks even. Next, clean off any finger prints, espe- cially on piano-finish plaques. I use Novus #1 plastic clean and shine for this as it is gentle and does not remove paints or fin- ishes. I always place the finished plaque in a clear plastic bag or presentation box to prevent scratching. Make sure the plaque is safe from scratches and can be easily pre- sented to the customer for review. The review by the customer is often the best part as most people appreciate the work that has gone into it and our efforts in building a trusting relationship. Given to the officer and K9 Blitz on the occasion of Blitz's retirement. A plaque for an elected official ending his term of service. A&E
