Basic mounting is a “through the face” with screws and anchors or a “blind” stud mount from the back. All our plaques come complete with mounting hardware. All plaques over (120) square inches come with full-size mounting template along with instructions for mounting. We also offer bronze garden stakes for plaques that are less than (120) square inches and steel post for larger size plaques.
