Have an inspirational story to tell? Bring it to life.

At Legacy of Valor, we understand that you have important and unique stories to tell. Our goal is to translate that history into an educational collectable that serves as an extension of your patron's visit.

We collaborate with you in the development of truly unique reproductions or scale replicas of clothing, accessories, artifact reproductions, scale figures and highly detailed scale vehicles. Every aspect of your product is developed exclusively for you and with the strictest attention to detail, authenticity and quality.

We bring over 25 years of product development and copy writing experience to every program we develop. We invite you to discover the retail opportunity that only a quality Legacy of Valor collectable can provide.

The process is simple:

One. We meet with you at your facility to become familiar with the history, interpretive material and artifacts on display.

Two. We discuss what person, place or thing would best represent the story you want your patrons to remember.

Three. We discuss your target audience and your merchandising goals for said product offering(s).

Four. We present a selection of product options, their respective costs and development time frames from which to choose.

Five. We develop a one-of-a-kind concept model of the reproduction or scale replica to be sold in your gift shop. In addition to developing the item itself, we work to portray its historical significance through package copy; the packaging can then also be further personalized with your sites’ logo and fund raising goals.

Six. We meet to present and discuss your custom one-of-a-kind concept model.

Seven. Adjustments and refinements are made to the concept as necessary.

Eight. A development schedule and product cost are developed.

Nine. A purchase order from your site initiates the production process.
