    I got their brass look plastic because in the past, my brass sign plates have always tarnished. They look great and you can't tell they are plastic unless you go up and touch them.

    Just this week I ordered from http://www.haltertags.com/
    They have stall plates.

    I am so pleased with the halter plate. It is the nicest I've seen, very deep engraving with black fill, super quality. Also, reasonably priced with reasonable shipping.

    I get mine from office supply shops -i.e, Office Max, Office Depot, local mail/printing/sign shops can do them very reasonably.

    I got a really nice one on eBay actually. It's on a beveled wooden base with a black brass plate, so everything engraved out reveals the brass. It has a breed silhouette and then my mare's name. Quite nice, and it's weathered several years, first in a barn and now on the front of a stall in the AZ sun, and it's still perfect. Let me know if you want me to try to dig up the ebay seller in my old emails.

    The Engraver. They are the ones normally at Devon Horse Show and are the engraver that does most of the work for the local tack stores.

    Default Quillin Leather and Tack - Paris, KY

    Hands down the best stall and halter name plates I have ever seen. They only use solid brass and engrave deep. They are also very friendly and personable. If you call over the phone to place your order and have made a previous order they remember you by name! They also have a quick turn around. I think I called on a Monday and had the stall plate within the week. Here is the link to their website. http://www.quillin.com/ I also got my horses halter & name plate from them that is absolutely gorgeous. I believe that they make all the halters and stall plates for all the big race horses as well, in their shop in KY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZh78...layer_embedded

    Check your local trophy shop. They put brass plates on lots stuff. They can usually engrave them on the spot, to the size specs you need. Cheap and no shipping!

    Default Name Plates

    I second www.bridleplates.com. I got a 5% off coupon at one of the shows she did last year. Use promo code 5%OFF at checkout. Works on tack too!!! I think it expires in June.
