Address Plaques are a Great End of School Gift for that Special Teacher!

We’ve reached that time of year, Summer of 2013 is upon us.  School is winding down and teachers and students alike are ready for a fun filled summertime, but parents may find themselves in a different boat this time of year.  All you parents out there know what I am talking about….running around town trying to locate the perfect gift to express your thanks and gratitude to your child’s teacher for all they have done throughout the school year.  A few years ago I too was stuck on a gift idea for my daughter’s amazing kindergarten teacher, Sonia.  I looked online, at boutiques, in catalogs and just couldn’t find the right gift that had the right sentiment.  Too bad a nicely polished apple doesn’t fly anymore!  After racking my brain for a great gift idea, I turned to what I know best and what I do for a living, metal and iron home décor.

I thought about Metropolis Iron’s vast product lines and determined that a custom designed home address plaque would be a unique, but proper gift.  It was something that Sonia would have for years and each day when she arrived home from a long day at school would pull into her driveway and remember one of her favorite students.  Sonia is a traditional type, so I created her address plaque in a traditional scroll design and aptly named it “Scrolls for Sonia.”  The gift was so well received and Sonia received so many compliments on her custom address plaque that I decided to add it as a featured address plaque in the Metropolis Iron online catalog.

My daughter just completed 3rd grade and for the 4th year in a row I faithfully supplied her teach with yet another beautiful address plaque.  So parents have no fear and stop looking for that perfect gift right now!  An address plaque from Metropolis Iron will stand the test of time in even the harshest climates, adds a level of beauty to a home and will help make homes become recognizable to visitors, delivery drivers and emergency services.  To learn more about our full line of address plaques visit our online showroom at
