President Obama was the keynote speaker at the graduation ceremony for The United States Coast Guard Academy in New London CT on May 18th 2011. In a way, Atlas Signs and Plaques was in attendance as well. Sort of in attendance.
A few days before the commencement (a very few days), Atlas received a call from the Academy requesting two bronze coated Coast Guard Plaques to be used during the ceremony. Since the President of the United States was going to be speaking at the event, we took on the project knowing that it would be a “push” to get them done and shipped in time.
This is not the first time Atlas Signs and Plaques worked with the Coast Guard Academy. A few years ago, Atlas created a five-foot diameter copper finished Coast Guard Plaque and shipped it to New London. The repeat business from such a prestigious institution is both appreciated and gratifying.
We think you will agree that the plaques are beautiful, but you probably didn’t know that they are also very economical. Atlas is always looking for opportunities to save money for our fellow taxpayers, and although a “thanks Atlas” from you would be appreciated, remember that we are taxpayers as well, and would like to see this fiscal responsibility continued and expanded. So, no thanks are required.
And…Every custom plaque from Atlas Signs and Plaques is Made in the USA, using American materials and American labor.
