If you are referring to the brass engraved type plates, a trophy shop will be able
to do them.
Do you have one of those in your area?
Cheers,

Model Monkey makes LOTS of 3D printed ship's name plates, but I agree with Joe that engraved brass ones look classier. Sorry, MM!

As Joe has stated see if you have a local trophy shop they should be able to help you.

If that doesn’t help Name it have done good plaques for me.
