Hang up the prestigious plaque

Hands up who’s been to London. All of us? Well not quite. But anyone familiar with its cobbled streets, permafog and tap-dancing cockney orphans will also know about English Heritage’s blue plaques. Like a low-tech foursquare, these eye-catching circles can be found all over the city, pointing out historical buildings where famous and influential people have lived, died, and written ‘Love Me Do’. Notable examples include the one-time home of Charles Babbage (1791-1871), inventor of the programmable computer; John Logie Baird (1888-1946), television pioneer; and Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970), who could make a terrific sandwich.

No one can take Andy's seat now

But why limit ourselves to only celebrating larger-than-life Londoners? We believe that anywhere outstanding achievements are made, an iconic Heritage plaque should commemorate it! Indeed, thanks to Personalised Heritage Signs you can make a blue plaque that’s almost indistinguishable from the real thing.

Made in the same factory and from the same materials, these rugged all-weather signs are the perfect way to bring a bit of British History to your garden, home or office space – not to mention show off your remarkable contributions to society. That, or just do as we do and invent your own historical figures.

Personalised Heritage Sign

Available in embossed polyurethane version (left), or laser cut aluminium version with vinyl printed decal (right).

Personalised Heritage Signs are available in two styles. Choose from the laser cut sheet aluminium plaque with a weatherproof printed vinyl decal, or (for a truly official feel) your very own one-off moulded polyurethane plaque with embossed details. Both are suitable for indoor or outdoor use and feature holes for screwing to walls, fences or monuments. The polyurethane plaque even comes with a handy bag of screws and rawl plugs.

Some fun examples:

Plus, they make a great housewarming or parting gift. Indeed, with over 850 of the genuine articles already dotted around London, isn’t it time you made your mark?

Customer Reviews

I bought this for my Dad for Xmas. It is much better than what I thought. My dad loves it and it is on the front of the house. This site is amazing, love Firebox.
Louise King, Nottinghamshire - 10th January 2014
Fantastic - I have been looking for these for a long time and could only find the metal one. The polycarbonate ones look just like the real thing. Well done you clever peeps at firebox!
Peter Bundy, UK - 2nd December 2013
The English Heritage website says that their plaques are made of cast clay. Your website says yours are 'made in the same factory from the same materials' Can you explain this discrepancy?
CVerrier, - 9th January 2013
Firebox says: Hello, I've just spoken to a member of the team that deals with these signs and they said: "they are made exactly the same way." There shouldn't be any discrepancies, if you have any more questions please e-mail us at info@firebox.com
Would I be allowed to include a swear word? It's a pretty bad one, but it's in the interests of an elaborate but hilarious practical joke.
Mike, The North - 2nd November 2012
Firebox says: Hi Mike, yes, you can indeed include a swear word, we will let you know if you go too far!
