Hello and Welcome. If you would like to place an order you have come to the right spot!
This page contains all the information you need to get started regardless if this is your first purchase with Brodin Studios, or you are a repeat customer. Please read through the details on this page carefully. Doing so ensures that you have completed all the necessary items we need to fulfill your order, expediting the ordering process so that you receive your finished small or large bronze statue exactly how you wanted it to look and when you need it!
The development times for our products vary greatly depending upon the specific product and size of the project. Remember, most of our items are custom created to ensure a detailed likeness of you in uniform, please start early, call well ahead of time, to help give some extra time to handle the vagaries of the ancient “Lost Wax” process of bronze casting. Nothing is made out of our state, and it’s mostly made by hand, so with adequate time, we can do a wonderful job. To determine the estimated turnaround time for your bronze piece, visit our FAQ section, or the specific product page where we may have some specific time requirement.
While our primary focus is on bronze statues for the Law Enforcement and Public Safety Communities, we do handle special requests for other types of orders. Please contact us directly at 800-274-5194 for special product orders.
We accept the following forms of payment: Cash, Check, Money Orders, Visa, and Master credit and debit cards.
Contact us at 800-274-5194 with any specific questions about your order. Call us and tell us what the occasion is, and specifically what you’re looking for and exactly when you need it and we will try our best to get it done right and on time. If some unforeseen problem arises and we’re getting close to your deadline for a retirement ceremony or special event, we’ll gladly send you a look-a-like substitute statue so there’s something to award and follow that up quickly with the real statue. If you’re close to Minnesota, our office number is 320-398-4304.
If this is your first purchase with Brodin Studios, please take a moment to read through the ordering steps listed below.
Start by making sure to check our Department List. If your Department is listed, somebody may already have given us all the detailed information we need. If you don’t see your department listed we’d invite you to complete our Uniform Checklist in its entirety and either mail, email, or fax it to Brodin Studios. We haven’t run into any problem with a department or Chief restricting any of that information, but check with your administration just to make sure.
Once you have that information, please just mail it, email it even FAX it to our company in Minnesota. It is held with the utmost privacy and control and nothing leaves here without your permission. We’ve been selling to small groups of officers, Special Agents of the F.B.I. and only those agents for 30 years now, so we will hold your uniform information, badge design, arm patches and other information sacred; we are retirees and we know important these things are to you.
For Miniature Statues include Digital Photos of the following:
- Arm Patch
- Cap Badge
- Chest Badge
- Special awards or rank insignia
2/3rds scale, life-size monuments or Memorials
For any of the 2/3rds scale, life-size monuments or Memorials, we could really use a Digital Photo of an individual dressed in the Department uniform. Most departments simply package everything that makes up the police uniform, the leather gear, hat, and special equipment like stun guns, radios, cuff cases, night sticks, etc., etc., but not the firearm itself, or Mace for obvious reasons. We will need to know the make and model, though, and photos of each item from different angles helps us a lot.
The photos of your human model are important to show us “how” items are worn. Firefighters can do the same, you have to send an empty air tank, but everything else travels well and we make absolutely sure that nothing is damaged and everything goes back the way we received it when the project is complete.
Please call, email, or fax us the details of your desired order.
You know what to do, call and tell us what your latest ideas are. If you know that something on our Uniform Checklist needs updating, please let us know and email us the up-to-date information, thanks.
