One of the most common questions we get asked is- What do I put on my plaque? While we encourage all customers to make plaques as personal as possible, we are happy to guide you along your path.

What Do I Put On My Plaque?

  • Hit all the key points. Make sure you have the recipient’s name, the reason for the award and the date.
  • Be as concise as possible. Too many words add clutter.
  • Be focused. An award should clearly state why the recipient is being honored. Let the awardee know why they are so special.
  • Check your spelling, particularly all names. Then check again. And again. When you get your proof- Triple check it again!
  • Consider adding a graphic or logo. Be Creative! Our graphic artists will help you realize your vision. You can always ask for help with the images in the order comments. We would be happy to be of assistance!
  • Have fun with with it! The most memorable awards have the most personality.
