What to Say

Probably the most important part of the award you select is the inscription. Don’t be mistaken, we place great emphasis on unique ideas, quality materials and workmanship, but we realize that awards are meant to be more than just pretty. The inscription should be something that really touches the recipient, something that positively displays your appreciation, admiration or gratitude. Even though space restrictions can sometimes reduce the quantity of lettering on a given piece, it does not have to diminish the quality of the message.

The examples shown below of verbiage are only intended to provide ideas and guidance. Your awards should make an appropriate statement from you to the recipient. 

We have broken our samples down into general categories to make browsing a little simpler. Please contact us with any questions you may have. We’ll be happy to assist you in any way possible.
