Commemorative Tiles

Tile CommemorativesLet Pewabic create a unique piece of art that is perfect for your special event, award, anniversary, or donor recognition program. We can use your logo or other meaningful design elements to create an heirloom-quality tile to suit your needs. You can also choose to use one of our existing giftware tile designs with a customized stamp on the back. A gift box embossed with the Pewabic logo and a Pewabic history card provides a professional presentation for your tile. These are available for a nominal fee.

The Process

A FREE initial 45 minute meeting with a Pewabic Designer at the Pottery will help us learn about your specific needs. Our in-house Design Studio will then develop a custom design for your tile and a price estimate for you to review and approve. You can choose a color from Pewabic’s unique glaze colors that are best suited for your tile design. Upon receiving your 50% deposit, our artisans will handcraft your tiles, using our own stoneware clay body and unique glaze recipes. Fabrication time for your tile is usually about 12 weeks from the date of deposit. Rush orders may be available for an additional fee. (Please note: not all orders are suitable for rush order status.)

How much will it cost?

  • Mold making set up fee: $750 - $1200 initially (depending on quantity and complexity of tile design). This is a one time set-up.  Reorders only require a mold cleaning and prep fee of $30.
  • Per piece price: Starts at about $20 each for a 4"x4" tile using standard production and glaze techniques. This is the smallest recommended size for optimum legibility. Larger sizes are also available.
  • Design Services: $95 per hour (Allow 1-4 hours typically for commemoratives)
  • Gift Box with History Card insert: $2 each
