This traditional baby birth plate has excellent detail in raised relief pewter and makes the perfect gift for new parents or for a baptism. Designated areas are provided for the baby’s name, birth date, weight, length and time. We even engrave the clock hands to show the exact time of birth. Additional areas are provided on this plate on the top and bottom inner ring area where you can optionally engrave the date of baptism. A hanger is permanently attached to the back.
FREE engraving is an added bonus when you purchase the traditional baby birth plate. For details, please see the Engraving Information link to the left.

All engraving lines are centered unless otherwise specified. There are times we will use our own judgement and make changes to the engraving. As an example, you may request all capital letters, but the font you chose would not look well in all caps. We will never change your verbiage or font choice without contacting you first, however, we will correct punctuation and make adjustments to the layout if necessary.
The time it takes to engrave and ship your order is two weeks. This can sometimes be shorter or longer depending on the time of the season. A tracking number will be sent on the day your order ships.
Need By Date:
We ask for this so that we can be sure that we do not miss an important date or event. We review your need by date and the shipping method you choose. In some instances, we may need to contact you and upgrade your shipping method or process on a rush basis so that you receive your item in time.
If you need your order sooner than two weeks, you can choose the option to rush your order. We also ask for the date you need your order by and we take that into account when you choose to rush your order. We will contact you if necessary.
