To create successful employee recognition, first and foremost, build an employee recognition system.  The system will help employees see what you value in their efforts.  Improved sales volume, getting to work on time, staying safe with a safety program, encourage employee longevity; these are all important markers you might seek to recognize and reward. Set aside time to meet with employees where awards presentations may be made. We all want to be recognized in front of our peers. If you can’t think of what to say, let us help you with suggestions.

Do you need a special plaque, or maybe an insulated Cold or Hot mug with a special recognition message? We have personalized employee recognition starting at $8.00 per person.

 UV Resistant Signs

UV Resistant Signs

aluminum-plaque engraved

For outdoor use, we supply a material composed of a multi-layer black coating over anodized aluminum, backed by a 3M high performance adhesive.  This metal named Dura-Black is the only CO2 laser engraved product certified for outdoor use that does not require pre-treatment or a protective topcoat to withstand the elements. Because of its ability to perform in challenging environments, Dura-Black meets many government, industrial and military specifications.The material comes in two thicknesses, one for rigid plates and one for slightly curved surfaces.

We have a variety of materials available to make the perfect sign just for you.  We use the process of sublimation for color transfer, via heat to specialty materials that soak in the color. The result is an item that has soaked up the color.  This will stay fresh for many years, although the sublimated products will fade eventually in direct sunlight exposure.

Photo murals

Through the process of sublimation, we help you turn your photos into mural art.

Making an Effective Awards and Recognition Presentation

Team AwardsThere are many occasions for honoring others, be it for sports, academic, sales achievement, for retirement, or embarking on job or a new career. Many award presentations fail because they do not do justice to the individual being honored. Some are too short or vague, and others are too long and boring.
When you are called upon to present an award or memento, it is your opportunity and duty to honor the person or persons being recognized.

Proper preparation and planning will help you acknowledge the individual adequately and graciously. The following guidelines will make your awards presentation speech more effective and memorable:

1. Give praise that is appropriate to the occasion, but don’t be dishonest.

2. Be as specific as possible in explaining why the recipient is being honored by listing his or her community service accomplishments, projects completed, and career highlights.

3. Demonstrate the true qualities of the recipient by making comments about what makes this individual unique or noteworthy. Ask friends and acquaintances for anecdotes or talents that should be noted.

4. To prepare your presentation seek information from those who know him or her and share the information in a straightforward and positive manner.
