Various Types of Plaques

• The “Colored Laminated Award” is meticulously coated award plates made from wood material laminated with variety of colors.  The plaque is carefully polished to create a solid wood appearance. Most laminated colored awards make use of recycled wood fibers, making them an environment-friendly option. Laminated colored plates are believed to be more affordable due to its quality manufacturing and eco-friendly impact.

• The Glass Awards Plaque comes in various shapes, sizes and styles depending on quality and distinctiveness.  The glass award plaque is produced by series of engraving and sandblasting methods. The glass award plates are usually placed under a small-sized granite or glass base to ensure rigidity when it’s being stand on a surface or shelf. However, the glass awards can be used as viable alternative for wood frame stands.

 

• The Solid Wooden Awards is recognizable for its simplicity and elegance. Made from various quality hardwood materials, the solid wooden plaque is deemed profitable for its carefully polished wood and granite finishes. Most solid wooden awards are usually given during academic recognitions and lifetime achievement awarding ceremonies.

 

• Certificate Holders comes out as the most basic type of award-giving plates. Certificate holders are dominantly given in any award-giving body, particularly seminars and community-based events. Some certificate holders are specially covered with a stylish holder to emphasize its esteemed appearance.

 

• The Executive Award Plaque is made from vibrant combinations of wood, glass and granite materials. What makes the executive plaque different from the aforementioned award-giving plates is that it’s overall styling and finishes is more lavish. The executive awards are usually given during corporate events to recognize the employee’s genuine contribution in the industry’s success.

 

• The Framed Award Plaque may have an overstated styling and appearance. However, the plaque is considered as one of the most identifiable award-giving plates today for its prestige. The framed award plaque is given on special occasions wherein an employee is recognized for his 10 – 20 years of service in the company. The plaque is also given during exceptional corporate recognitions such as “tribute” ceremonies.

 

• The Wood Laminated Plaque are said to be manufactured using the same method as that of the colored laminated ones. The only difference is that the wood laminates are made from 100% quality wood and its styling and finishes is less elegant and minimal. The wood laminated plaque is typically handed during private occasions.

 

• The Perpetual Award Plaque is commonly seen in monthly and annual award-giving bodies conducted by company staff. The largest perpetual plaque has few distinct subdivisions in which the names of the previous recipients are situated.

 

• The Granite Award Plaque is one of the most prestigious award-giving plates available today. Despite its expensive price when purchased, the granite plaque has a more elegant and quality value. The plaque comes in two sub-types: the Standing and Wall plaque. Both granite awards are made from combinations of quality hard wood, metal and unique shades of marble which can be sandblasted or engraved.

Another Busy Weekend at Edco Trophies

In the video clip below you will see our MultiCam CNC router cutting acrylic. The CNC cuts acrylic with a rotating cutter up to 1 inch thick. The CNC is capable of cutting wood, solid surface material (counter top granite look-a-like) and metal. The majority of the time our CNC is cutting the beautiful acrylic awards shown here http://www.edco.com/acrylic-awards but also is frequently used to cut dimensional letters and sign blanks which we later decorate with our Roland Large Format printer. The word CNC means computer numerical controlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numerical_control and is controlled by a vector computer file. If an outline file can be drawn or scanned and converted on your computer, the Edco CNC can cut it!

Bruce Yoskin - Edco Awards & Specialties

Meet Bruce Yoskin - Sales Manager of Specialty Products

Bruce Yoskin has been with Edco for 11 years.  We are glad he chose to hang his hat at Edco Awards & Specialties.  Bruce had many years experience in ad specialty sales and joining the Edco team gave him additional lines of signage, wearables, etched crystal awards and more.

A specialist in large accounts, Bruce is proud to include many of the areas large hospitals, corporations and universities among his loyal clients. They look to him for wearables, awards, banners as well as the standard promotional items such as pens, glassware, desk items and other giveaways.

Prior to joining Edco, Bruce spent many years in the specialty food and confectionery industry both here in South Florida and in his home town of Philadelphia.

The next time you go to the theater, look closely, because when he isn’t selling specialty products, he might be found “trodding the boards”; he has appeared in dozens of theatrical productions in the area.

Bruce and his wife Susan, a twenty six year employee of IBM, have children and grandchildren in Philadelphia and Birmingham.

Give him a call at 954-587-0137 ext 119! He’ll be glad to come out and work with you at your office, helping you decide how best to present what is most important to you… your image.

Laser Engraving and Laser Cutting

Edco has been utilizing lasers to engrave plastic and metal and to cut various materials for over 30 years.  Edco utilizes the laser to create beautful acrylic awards and to engrave all types of awards and signs.  We use the laser in our engraved brick process as well as cutting small dimensional letters and the fabrication of name badges.  We have engraved the frames of eye glasses, engraved images on leather, glass, wood, fabric and we can even use it to create an imprint on stainless steel.  Our motto for the last 30 years still holds true... "If it doesn't move, we can probably engrave it!"

Flat Bed UV Printing on Acrylic

Mimaki JF Series UV printer

Edco has state of the art flat bed UV printing capabilities with its Mimaki JF series printer.  This printer can print on any flat surface including glass, acrylic, wood, metal, cardboard and sign type plastic materials.  The UV printer was a six figure investment but has become one of the most used machines in the plant.  The acrylic guitar you see went from concept to finished product in two days.  With Edco's Multicam CNC Router (to be featured in a blog soon) the acrylic was cut from 3/4 inch by 8 foot by 4 foot sheet.  Sanded and polished and printed all in our facility on Davie Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.  Edco can take your rough drawing or concept, create the vector art for driving the CNC and the full color art to be printed on the UV printer.  If it's one or a hundred, Edco has the ability to make custom printed acrylic awards!

Edco Awards & Specialties - Unique Signage

Recently Edco Awards & Specialties installed a unique way of advertising.  We placed 8 foot tall plastic letters on the roof of the building.  This is what the newest update of Google Earth will look like when it is processed.  We are running a contest for anyone who flies over though.  We will give a $100.00 check to the first person who takes an actual photograph of this from the air.  Caution!  We have placed a strange object on the roof as well so your photograph must show that too (no photoshop jobs)!

Workhorse of our acrylic award department

Recently we found out that the Bermaq Company located in Spain has gone out of business. Since 1982 they have been making this machine which is a critical part of Edco Awards & Specialties acrylic award production. This machine has diamond blades that finish the edges of acrylic as the first step to making a beautiful acrylic award. For many years Edco has been producing acrylic awards that ultimately get lasered. Recently Edco added a Mimaki flat bed UV printer which prints directly on the surface of acrylic and other surfaces. Other links of interest about the Bermaq and acrylic polishing are here:

We understand that the employees of Bermaq in Spain were going to try and bring the company back but we are unsure if their efforts have been successful.

Here are some of the products the Bermaq is instrumental in creating:
