However, there is one huge and glaring aspect that really disappointed me: The signature on the license is not mine.
Specifically, it is my name, but it is not my signature. I provided two signature samples, as requested in the instructions. But the signature on the plaque is clearly a poor "forgery" accomplished in the production process and looks very little like either of my examples. Whatever machine or technician copied my signature onto the plaque missed the mark. It also uses a bold, black "ink" on a bright white background that visually overpowers the entire plaque.
This is a handsome plaque and it looks great on my wall. But every time I look at it all I see is the dramatic signature block that really isn't mine.January 19, 2020Purchased

I enjoy looking at this handsome plaque but the boldness of the signature really detracts from an otherwise excellent product.January 18, 2020Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?NoElite Dual sided plaqueI was disappointed in the bright white signature area.
