OMEP Plaque

The OMEP Plaque Journey

This bronze plaque was custom-made for OMEP, featuring a stylized acorn and oak leaf motif. With a wood base for secure mounting, this plaque is the ideal choice for OMEPS' concept.

A few words about the Plaque:

"The idea of the plaque was inspired by two events.  A number of years ago OMEP ( the Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership) put together a rather ambitious strategic plan.  We visualized the plan as a stout old oak tree with deep roots to honor our prior accomplishments and strong arching branches to characterize our service offerings to our clients.  As we were refreshing that plan earlier this year, we realized that we had accomplished the majority of those goals set years ago.  Coincidentally, I was celebrating twenty years of service with the OMEP.  With two good reasons to celebrate, I commissioned the piece that Beth and Garrett created as a gift to the organization that I have enjoyed being a part of for so many years.

A few words about our Acorn Celebration:

OMEP’s strategic plan can be visualized as a robust oak tree.  Acorns are the fruit of an oak tree and are their potential for future generations.  Inspired by Garrett and Beth, we developed an “acorn celebration" that is tied to our image of our long-term strategy.  When a member of the OMEP team makes a unique and compelling contribution to OMEP’s future, they are awarded an acorn at our monthly Staff Meeting.  Going forward, that staff member then carries the responsibility of identifying and awarding the next acorn to another employee.  This simple event has become a celebration and a commitment to the future."...John V.

We love to create custom orders but may have some limitations on what we can build for you. Changing the size or shape of an item, such as a handle or sprue length, is within our realm of expertise. Creating an item for you with the items we already sell are also within our capabilities. Creating from scratch, your design, is a bit trickier but we are willing to collaborate with you to see if it can be done. All custom orders are final sales and cannot be returned, please see our return policy. Fees will be discussed in person and billed separately for all custom orders so that there are no surprises at the end of the project.
