Personalized Baby Name Plates

file0001975872957Personalized baby name plates and items like it are wonderful keepsakes for your children. They can contain the child’s name, date of birth, and any other information you want on there. Perhaps there is a quote that reminds you of your child every time you think of it, or you would like to put their birth time and weight on it. All of this is possible; you are limited only by your imagination and what you are willing to spend.

What can you put on a Personalized Baby Name Plate?

The most common items to put on these plates are:

  • Name
  • Birthday
  • Time of birth
  • Birth weight
  • A picture of the child

These plates are wonderful for putting on the child’s wall as they let everyone know that this is the child’s room, or if they share a room that it personalizes that side as theirs and gives them a sense of space. They can also be affixed to the child’s door, on a family wall or anywhere else you may want to display them.

These plaques can contain pictures as well and your child will truly appreciate them once they are older and they move out as it is a piece of their history and shows them what they were like as a child. One plaque I saw a mother do for her child was every year she would have a small plate made that would have the date, their picture, a small quote, their favorite subject in school and what they wanted to be when they grew up. It was fascinating watching this develop as the child got older and they could always look back and watch how he developed from a little boy who wanted to be a cowboy to a teen who was excellent with computers.

Design Decisions

These plates can be as big or as small as you like, and can be made for whatever milestones you want to immortalize from their first word to their first bike. They can also be made from many different materials from wood to glass to metals. Again, it all depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend. Most of these plates are squares or rectangles; however, it is possible to have them made into any shape.

Where can I buy them?

These plates can be purchased from a number of retailers and most places that do digital printing can either do it for you or point you in the right direction to someone who can. They can range in price from inexpensive to fairly expensive depending on the materials, size, location, among other things. Local places such as WalMart can have these printed relatively cheaply and conveniently. You can design it online and have it shipped directly to your door making it ideal for those last minute Christmas gifts when the weather is bad out and travel is dangerous.

These are a great present for any member of the family for any occasion as they are so adaptable and can be completely customized. You can even have plates made to showcase a special drawing your child did.
