Custom Awards Build Brand Equity

Custom awards build brand equity. They are great for corporate retreats and special events.


Custom awards are a great way to build logo and brand equity. Our customers love this option because it's easy, fast and ultimately an amazing value! OK, so basically we start with your idea or company logo and build the award around it. We have the facilities and tools that allow us to create custom shapes from acrylics which are later engraved or printed in full color to create impressive one-of-a-kind custom trophies. All of our awards are crafted in-house which gives us control over the entire production process and enables us to provide our customers with innovative, premium quality awards for a great value.


Take a look at our latest creation, a Custom Surfboard Award fabricated from .5" thick clear acrylic. These beachy awards will be presented to the winners of the Surftown Half Marathon. The printing was done in reverse on the back side of the acrylic to give this trophy a really cool dimensional look. The surfboard topper is elevated on a clear acrylic base with a gold plate with personalized engraving.


We can produce just about anything, so don't set limits just on awards!

Use Corporate Gifts To Show Employee Recognition

Use Corporate Gifts To Show Employee Recognition



Corporate gifts don’t have to be expensive, although they certainly can be if you want. It can just be something that says the company has noticed their hard work and want to say thanks for it. Such a small gesture as this will produce such happiness among your employees that you it might amaze you.



Following the receipt of corporate gifts, don’t be surprised to see your employees working even harder than they were before. When employees are singled out and recognized in this way for what they bring to the company, you can bet they’ll continue to be top notch employees. Sometimes recognition in this way means more than a paycheck ever could.



Offer your employees gifts that are custom printed. Awards like these can have the person’s name along with their achievement engraved beside the company logo. Anything from simple engraved plaques to obelisk structures in the form of crystal awards are great ways to show employee achievement. Companies also have been known to host entire dinners where these awards are presented to the employees.



However you choose to present your corporate gifts to your employees most likely doesn’t matter. In this instance, it’s more the gesture and what that means. When you single out each employee to present the award, you’re also giving her, or him, a moment of glory to bask in.
