Need a gift in a hurry? This Family Coat Of Arms is emailed to you so that you can print it out at home.
Coat of Arms were issued in the mid-twelfth century, as a means of identifying warriors during battle, but eventually became a status symbol amongst well-to-do families. They were issued to families and not names. The symbols on their shields can depict different qualities in the initial holder of the Coat Of Arms, as can the colours and designs.
There are over 1 million Coat of Arms in my database and all our coats of arms come with an authenticity stamp. This means you can actually check to see which historical book they were taken from. Please be aware that others offering heraldry gifts may not have this authenticity stamp.
I get many emails every week asking me to 'find my family coat of arms', and in 95% of cases, this is very possible. The names that I don't have in my database, I have access to in most other cases. Please be aware that sometimes there were many different coat of arms issued to a name. At Gifted Memories we will send you the oldest Coat Of Arms for that name that we can find, unless otherwise requested.
I pride myself in supplying the most accurate Coat Of Arms. I have access to the major heraldry guides, and enjoy the research that can be involved in finding the correct one.
You can also choose to add the crest to your family coat of arms. The crest is the picture that appears above the helmet, and carries with it different meanings.
Your Coat of Arms are emailed to you in .pdf format within 2 business days. For the best results, print them out on glossy photo paper for a professional appearance.
