Nameplates are meant to convey that someone is important enough to warrant a nameplate. But if you’d rather be known for being whimsical or creative, or if you just want to celebrate and flaunt your love of LEGO to the world, then ditch the wood and brass and go for a Brick-Built Nameplate.
As you can see, the nameplate is completely made of LEGO bricks. To order, go to their website, enter what you want to appear on the nameplate and then choose a color scheme. You’ll be sent all of the necessary LEGO parts along with a CD containing build instructions. Yep – you have to assemble the nameplate yourself. Because putting it together is part of the fun!
Each nameplate costs about $20 (USD) plus $10 per character, spaces included. Yeah, kinda expensive, but then again it is quite unique. Plus founder Eli Carter himself wrote the software that creates the model and instructions. I think a more legitimate complaint would be the lack of more… attractive color schemes. Check out Brick-Built Nameplate’s website to see what I mean.
