History of Family Shields
Traditional coat of arms designs date back to the 12th century, where decorating defensive shields became a useful way of identifying knights in the heat of battle. These insignia were created by officials known as heralds, who also recorded and regulated armorial bearings. Their records were known as blazons. Typically a blazon has three components - arms (the 'flag' part of the image), crest (the design surrounding the flag), and the motto (which often originated as a war cry).
Frequently asked questions about family Crest Shields
Do you have all family name crests in stock?
Yes! We carry thousands of family crests. Both Irish and non-Irish. If you have a specific crest to hand that you want us to copy, you can send it to us after you order. But we generally refer to our genealogically approved official crest database.
How long does it take before the family shield ships?
From the moment you order, please allow up to five weeks to complete. This is standard for any great shield. As we say in Ireland, all good things come to those who wait! Our family shields are genuine, handmade and top class quality. You will be delighted with the outcome! You can view our shipping rates here.
Should I order standard shipping at the checkout?
It's up to you. Express is more expensive but it means you will get it in two days after completion (taking six weeks to complete). So, if you urgently need it, we advise express but it's up to you. Regular shipping reaches you in 12 days.
