Should I purchase this plaque?

Talk about opportunists! I was called by a company that makes these plaques for people like me that have won an award on City Search. They offered me the little 6x12 one for $139 or the 9x12 for $219. It's some special lucite casing thing.

I know I could probably pay a designer to make me one and frame it for much less, but I definitely don't have time for that in my schedule.

It appeals to my sense of pride. And the folks that sell it said it also encourages my current students, that will see the plaque, to go to City Search and post more positive reviews. And this in turn brings in more business. I don't know if that's true or not. I can afford it. But I wouldn't feel right about spending that kind of money on something to feed my pride before I get a second opinion first.

Order the plaque

Buy it
Try to talk them down in price, then buy it
Don't buy it
