Perched Pelican Address Plaque
You will love this tasteful and beautiful Pelican Address Plaque. The Pelican is found in literally every corner of the globe and is predominantly a sea shore bird. We say predominantly because the American White Pelican is not that uncommon here, where we make our signs and plaques, in South Central Wisconsin.
This little factoid makes the Perched Pelican Plaque appropriate for beach houses in any coastal location whether it be in Long Beach California or the shores of Lake Mendota in picturesque Madison Wisconsin. Sporting a wonderfully detailed pelican perched on a mooring pole as the main graphic, it is further enhanced by a little sand dollar to complete the maritime motif.
This master fisher is not only an appropriate Pelican Address Plaque, but is perfect as Pelican wayfinding or informational signage in aquariums, marine parks, and wildlife viewing areas.

Did you know that there are more than half a dozen species of Pelicans? What they all have in common is that famous big throat pouch. Pelicans are social birds and tend to stay in flocks. They travel in a line along coastlines, lakes and rivers. The Pelican is an incredibly large bird. Their wingspan can be as large as 16 – 17 feet and they can fly at an altitude of nearly 10,000 feet. They like to eat fish, tadpoles and sometimes turtles. Their beaks with large pouch can hold up to three buckets of fish.

Our Signs and Plaques have a base of modern 30 pound High Density Urethane (HDU) board (a type of plastic). This is a product that was developed for the aerospace industry and has been used for signage for over 40 years. It’s light weight, waterproof, and will last decades in an exterior environment.
We coat our HDU with a cold applied real metal coating that is in use world-wide as an architectural and industrial coating. It is a well-proven, tough, and beautiful coating that gives the look of cast metal without the limitations of weight and cost. Therefore, when you receive your order, you will notice that it is light weight. Since it is HDU with a thin metal coating, it is light and easy to hang on any wall without fear of testing the building’s structural integrity.
Our signs and plaques receive a marine grade lacquer coating prior to shipment. “Marine Grade” means that the coating is designed to protect even in harsh coastal environments. That being said, our metal coatings are a “living finish” and you can expect some changes over time even though they are protected with a high-quality protective clear coat.
