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)!

We have delivered our fund raising tree of life recognition wall product to churches as far as Clewiston and Naples.

In addition to Edco being the first awards company on the internet, we think we have one of the first vehicles to sport a giant QR code on its side! Next time you see the Edco delivery van around South Florida shoot the QR and say hello to driver Ed Thebold. Ed has been our customer pleasing awards delivery driver for many years!

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:

With all the acrylic orders we have in house, it looks like the CNC crew will be working on Saturday.  It is great to see business coming back as strong as it is.  School budgets are getting further cut by state government and corporate style awards made of acrylic and UV printed are getting busier and busier!
