I have the name of a company that does chrome plating in the bookmarks. You may want to contact them.

There's quite a few plating companies nationwide. I'm sure there are a few reputable ones in the Carolinas. Just Google "chrome plating" or stop at a book store such as Barnes & Noble and look in any of the classic car magazines like Hemming's Motor News and you'll see them in the classifieds and elsewhere. We have at least a couple here in Western Pa. Paul's Chrome Plating in Evans City and Qual Krome in Erie come to mind.

Chroming is not cheap in any sense. With the regulations that chromers have to follow, especially in regard to hazardous waste, it has gotten more and more expensive to have done.

Also, if you have this done, don't be in a rush to get the finished items back. Plating shops do their jobs in groups and don't do single jobs. Too expensive and wasteful of the materials needed to plate for them to do that. When they get a certain amount of jobs to do depending on their individual protocol, then they get them plated. It is not uncommon for customers to wait a month or more to get the finished items back. It's just the way it is.
