I use Guilplates based in Guildford, Surrey for all my 00 and G3 nameplates. I can highly recommend them and a swift service as well.

My V2 name plates, makers plates, etc came from Diane Carney I think Guilplates supply them painted, Diane does not. Not such a problem with a straightforward name - my plates
 for the Snapper had the regimental badge and coloured background.

For what it's worth, I too use Diane Carney's service; you should see the fantastic Sentinel builders plates she's done for me, with a watchmakers eyeglass you can even read the construction number!

Yes, I agree, Diane Carney's work cannot be bettered.
Every letter and number on my tiny LNER Stratford Works plates can be clearly read with a magnifying glass.

My fellow Members, ask not what your Society can do for you, ask what you can do for your Society.

At the risk of over-egging this thread, my last post was incomplete. The plates supplied by Diane for my V2 were  unfortunately subject to some quality issues. However, Diane resolved these very quickly, supplied new plates to the high standard for which she is well know. Problems occur, it is how well they are dealt with that matters. I would unhesitatingly use her products again.

Been away and just saw this thread... I'm in Canada too, but couldn't find anyone here to make etched builder's plates. I've had good experience with PPD ( in Lochgilphead, Argyll. They are quick if you can provide the artwork, and the prices seem very reasonable to me.
