Government Officials Give Presenta Plaques to say Thanks!

by Presenta Plaque | on Mar 31, 2017 | No Comments

Elected officials are recognizing the importance of giving plagues to their constituents. The plague might be as a thank you for volunteer work or for honoring a job well done in the community.

Recently Pennsylvania Senator Mario Scavello showed his appreciation to the many people he serves.  Scavello used a Presenta Plaque to congratulate the Savage Wolves CrossFit on the recent grand opening of their new facility.

At another grand opening, Senator Scavello congratulated the TCC/The Cellular Connection with a Presenta Plaque to send best wishes for success.

In Dumas, Texas, Police Chief Nelson presented Officer Heathington with a Presenta Plaque to recognize her lifesaving efforts for saving the life of a citizen.

A Presenta Plaque was also used by the Champaign, Illinois Police Department to frame the Oath of Office taken by a police officer.

The City of North Miami Beach honored a couple of their employees with a special recognition plaque.

The list goes on and on. Whatever the occasion, a plaque from our company is a great way to show the appreciation an employee or citizen of a community deserves.

Sure adults appreciate plaques for exceptional service or a job well done. Kids are no exception. They love to see an award they have earned up on a wall proudly displayed. Maybe it was the MVP of their sports team certificate or honor roll, possibly a community service award.

Plaques to Share Memories – Plaque Kits

by Presenta Plaque | on Jan 30, 2017 | No Comments

Moving soon? A house comes in many forms – a mobile home, an apartment, a condominium, townhouse, a treehouse and anything else in between. However, the form of house almost always does not matter as much as what is in it – because those are the people and things that turn your house into a home. Moving into a new home can be stressful and it is easy to get caught up and overwhelmed with everything that that is required to make that house a home.

Here at Presenta Plaques, we would like to remind you to let go a little!

It is possible to put in too much focus and energy on the little details that you may forget the simplicity – the warmth when you have a home to put your feet up at the end of the day.  Take a breather and try switching gears once in a while, don’t let that stress enter your new home. Take a few breaths before you enter and leave all the negative energy from the outside world on the front steps. Make sure your home is strictly a peaceful, happy place!

              Speaking of a happy place, make memories and share your home with others. The more you share it with people you love and fill it with laughter, the more it will feel like home. Invite guests over and host dinner parties, watch a movie with loved ones and spend more time enjoying the comforts of home. Don’t run out every chance you get! The more time you spend at home, the more you will start to appreciate it and make it work for you.

              With all the memories you are going to make in your new home, what about a plaque to commemorate it? Not only would it be beautiful décor, it would also be a beautiful reminder of how your home should feel. Presenta Plaque kits are easy to assemble, versatile and would make a beautiful décor piece. It would be perfect on your wall in your new home! Check out our website for more details on how to order your very own kit! Congratulations on moving in!

 

Plaques to Celebrate Law Enforcement Officers

by Presenta Plaque | on Jan 25, 2017 | No Comments

In the United States, law enforcement officers put their lives at risk on the daily for the safekeeping and protection of others. They serve with valor, honor and distinction – and often with auspicious outcomes. However, the protection of law comes at a price. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund statistics, there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers each year, resulting in nearly 16,000 injuries, an average of 146 officers have been killed in line of duty and throughout the United States history, more than 20,000 law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Even though there is no way to completely repay law enforcement officers, they should still be commended for their dedication. Our Presenta Plaque kits are the perfect way to honor their valor. In November of 2016, Lourenke Kidson of St. Louis County Police Department was honored with a plaque for returning to protect and serve, after leaving in 2012. In December of 2016, Sr. Officer Ronald Hall or “Pookie” was commended for his 30 years of excellence in service as a police officer for the Texas City Police Department. Officer Hall has never called in sick in the 30 years he has been of service and his extraordinary dedication did not go unnoticed.

Our law enforcement officers work hard and dedicate their lives to protect us. We should be aware of that and appreciate their hard work. Our plaques are accessible, ergonomic, versatile, functional and beautiful. What are you waiting for?  Check out our website for more information and how to place your order.

Honoring Employees with a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Dec 22, 2016 | No Comments

Everyone wants to be recognized from time to time.  Whether it is a new business making a move into a community, perhaps it’s another business that does good towards others.  Whatever the case may be a recognition certificate is always nice to receive.

Recently two such groups received such recognition and they were given certificates by dignitaries that not only represent the city/town they are in but those who represent the region they reign from.  One of those was Local First Utah in Ogden, Utah.

Local First Utah is a non-profit organization that tries to strengthen communities and local economies by promoting, preserving and protecting local, independently owned businesses.  Local First knows how important it is to not only have commercial retailers, but mom and pop places as well.  Those mom and pop businesses can be seen as the backbone to the community and help to stimulate the local economy.

Recently the group was recognized before the Ogden city council in Ogden, Utah.  The group was recognized for their efforts at promoting local businesses, but the recognition had the goal of trying to encourage locals to shop local.

Now, this recognition could have just been done with a simple certificate to Local First Utah, but the city council and others took it a step further.  The certificate was also placed inside one of the Presenta Plaque plaque kits.  It not only preserves the certificate but it makes it easier to display and proudly show off for this group.  Although Local First Utah does a lot of their work without any type of recognition, it is nice for them to be celebrated for all that they do in this manner.

This was not the only time the city council there in Ogden used a Presenta Plaque kit to help recognize someone.  During another city council meeting one of our kits was used to house the certificate to recognize and honor the Honorary Mayor of Christmas Village and proclaim it Jo Packham Day.  The event and the addition of a plaque with the certificate declaring it a special day make for a memorable event for the person receiving  it, such as in the case of Jo Packham.

These gestures are not hard to accomplish and Presenta Plaque makes it so easy for people to do.  The kits come in stylish colors and types of materials.  They take the certificates and upgrade them into a whole new level.  Those receiving the awards or recognitions are already touched by the gesture, it just brings it up a notch for them.  So if you are getting ready to give someone a special ‘thank you’ perhaps upgrading it with a Presenta Plaque kit is the way to go.

Holiday Crafts Worth Framing in a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Dec 12, 2016 | No Comments

Tis the season for giving gifts, so why not make some of those gifts not only memorable but something that can be enjoyed for years to come.  Making it a gift that can double as a holiday décor from here on out.  Here are some ideas to consider.

The kiddos are either already home for winter break or are getting ready to be on winter break.  A lot of them are looking for things to do, so why not give them a few projects that will not only occupy their mind some, but keep them out of trouble as well.

Holiday cards are a fun and easy project for most little ones to get involved with.  Children of any age can spend hours creating these treats to either give away or perhaps they can create an image that represents the holidays to them.  This is a fantastic opportunity for children to explore their creative side and imagination.

If your child isn’t particularly artistic maybe stickers are the way to go for them.  Go with them to the craft store and let them pick out stickers that speak to them in some manner.  Stickers of their favorite characters are available and there are also stickers that represent different aspects of the holidays.  Let them take these stickers and tell a story on paper.  They can finish off the image by coloring around it and adding to the overall look.  Once again this image can be used as the front of a card to either a parent or grandparent or it can just be a holiday image they want to create for fun.

Perhaps your child is a little more artistic.  Drawing a picture can be fun and entertaining for them.  They can color those images and add glitter to them and really make it sparkle and shine.  There are crayons and markers available that can easily be cleaned up and corrected in case the project gets a little out of hand.  By sitting your child down with these tools you are inviting them to not only have hours of fun but to keep their minds stimulated as well.

This is also the time of year where you may take a lot of photos.  Why not make them into a collage that you can display for years to come.  Those same stickers you were using earlier make a GREAT way to attach the photos to a larger piece of paper for display purposes.  By writing the year on the collage you can look back for years to come and see and remember those special times.

Once these projects are complete you’re going to want to display them.  Presenta Plaque has  perfect ways to not only display them but preserve them as well.  Our plaque kits are stylish and easy to put together.  Just imagine being able to slip these projects right in and they are ready to show off in not only your home but your office as well.  The plaque kits come in a variety of styles and colors which make them pretty to look at.  You can store them away with your other holiday décor and proudly display them every year. 

So the next time your child says they are bored.  Share these ideas with them and grab one of our plaque kits and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcoming a New Business with a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Nov 29, 2016 | No Comments

The mom and pop business is still a necessary part of our community.  These are the businesses started by everyday people that are not associated with a big box retailer or a larger commercial place.  These are the businesses that look forward to serving the community with their services and goods and ask nothing in return other than your continued support.  When these new businesses open up a lot of towns and municipalities welcome them to the fold and when they are welcomed they honored in a special way.

One such example is the newest business in Bangor, Pennsylvania titled “Grace on Broadway.”  “Grace on Broadway” is a store of odds and ends and refurbished furniture that many would describe as shabby chic.  They recently celebrated their Grand Opening in the small town of Bangor with a party of sorts that welcomed them into the community.  One of those in attendance for the event was Pennsylvania Senator Mario Scavello.  He attended the festivities to not only welcome them into the community but to celebrate the accomplishments of “Grace on Broadway” for achieving their goal to successfully open this business.  Not only did the store have a formal ribbon cutting, but during the ceremony, they were presented with an award of recognition by the senator.  The certificate was placed inside a Presenta Plaque kit and recognized their hard work and welcomed them into the town.

What makes this plaque so special is that this gives them a permanent reminder of what it was like to get this all put together.  This is something that can be proudly displayed in the store for all who visit to see.  It can serve as a reminder of the work they put into the business and the feeling they got when it was successfully opened.  It can help start up a wall within their shop where they can portray other achievements and milestones.  Perhaps the next plaque could be the first dollar they made.  Maybe there is a plaque to celebrate the 100th customer.  Another reason would be to recognize other employees when they do well.  Maybe it can be a reminder of their first anniversary.  Whatever the cause is Presenta Plaque has a plaque kit available to help you display it.

These small businesses work harder and longer days than most big box retailers.  Many times the people who own them are the only employees there and that means at least a six day work week to make sure their business thrives.  When they do a little recognition is nice and means the world to them.  You can only imagine what it felt like to have a Senator recognize the achievement of “Grace on Broadway” in Bangor, PA.  Presenta Plaque of course is proud to be a part of the recognition.

When you have a recognition come up like this, remember Presenta Plaque can help you properly display it.  Their plaque kits are stylish, affordable and easy to assemble.  It takes just a few moments of time to put this all together for a business, but the end result can and will last a lifetime.

 

Plaques to Honor Our Military Men and Women

by Presenta Plaque | on Nov 16, 2016 | No Comments

This month we celebrated Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving.  One celebrated the lives of those who fought so hard to preserve our freedom and rights.  The other is to celebrate all that you are thankful for in your life.  During these times there is a simple project that you can do to honor anyone you choose to.

For example, let’s take the mayor of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  He wanted to do whatever he could to pay tribute to some of the men and women who fought for this country.  Specifically those who are housed in a assisted living center in his town.  Yes, he could have easily made a donation or just supplied them a meal, but the mayor decided to take it a step further.  For each of those military members he found out something special about them.   He wrote is up with a photograph attached and presented their special story inside a plaque.  Each of these men and women were presented their plaque at a special ceremony that took place in that assisted living center.  Some of them contained a newspaper article that was written about them.  Others got a collage of photos with the special story put together.  Regardless of what they received these men and women were grateful.   It proved to them that there are people who care for them and it gave them a memento to remind them of the day and the events involved.

This simple gesture is something that you can do yourself.  Nearly every community has an assisted living center or retirement village.  Go in there and learn about your neighbors.  Sit with them, hear their stories and be inspired by them.  Take the time to let them share photos with you.  From there sit down and write down what you learned.  Add photos to whatever you write about them.  Presenta Plaque has the perfect way to get that gift back to them.  Our plaque kits are not only pretty to look at but they are easy to assemble.  Once it is put together go back and present it to them.  It doesn’t have to be in a ceremony like the mayor of Chippewa Falls did, it can be through a personal interaction, just to show these people you care.

This doesn’t have to just be a Veteran’s Day project.  Take Thanksgiving for example.  A lot of people are hosting family and friends in their home.  Why not make a plaque that will not only serve as a place setting, but as a token of appreciation as well.  Perhaps you are hosting your parents, grandparents, nieces and nephews or even some friends.  In a day where social media is prominent there is plenty of access for people to get their hands on pictures and memories of these individuals.  Put together a collage of memories.  Add their name to the top and place it once again in one of our kits.  Place these plaques where they will be seated.  They will act as not only a place card, but they can help stimulate dinner conversation.  People will want to share their plaque and tell stories about the memories.  At the end of the evening they can take them home and it is a memento of the evening.  A sweet parting gift that was easy to make.

These plaques can be quite simple to put together and our kits are the perfect way to do it.  Check out our website for plaque options and order yours today!

 

Honoring Students with a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Oct 26, 2016 | No Comments

Today our students are pulled in a variety of different directions.  They are bogged down with school lessons, homework and even extracurricular activities.  All of these things combined help students to get into the schools of their choice and show that they are well-rounded.  We should recognize these achievements with a plaque and as parents show them off as they happen.

Good grades are expected when you are in school, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t take work to achieve.  For some students those good grades take hours of discipline and dedication to the schoolwork to get in the school’s good graces.  When those good test scores come in or good report cards, they should be celebrated and recognized.  Why not display it an elegant manner.  Our Presenta Plaque kits are the perfect way to display those perfect scores.  You can place them up in your home in a prominent location.  The act shows not only that you are proud of the achievement but it can also serve as motivation for the student as well.

A lot of our students are involved with extracurricular activities such as athletics or academic clubs.  While they are involved in those activities, there will be events you want to preserve and remember.  Maybe it’s a photo taken after scoring the winning point.  Perhaps it is the program from a convention they attended with an academic team.  These memories can all be perfectly framed in one of our plaque kits.  They serve as a permanent reminder of that time and something that can stimulate not only conversation but memories of that occasion.

Finally what about the acceptance letter to the university or college?  All of this work ultimately goes towards that goal.  The dream college your child has worked towards.  The first step they are taking towards adulthood.  Show it off, frame the letter and let the world see that accomplishment on paper.  Be proud of the hard work that went into it and the end result because of it.

Recently the Rotary Club of Castle Rock in Castle Rock, Colorado recognized one of these student achievers.  Alec  Greven was recently named the “Rotary Student of the Month” for the Rotary Club of Castle Rock.  The group used a Presenta Plaque kit to present him with an award recognizing this honor.   Alec was presented the award during the group’s monthly meeting by Castle View High School principal, Rex Corr and the Rotary’s president, Jerry Lionetti.  The award was presented in front of family and friends and it being placed inside a Presenta Plaque made it feel more substantial than just being handed a certificate.  It is something this student will remember and display with pride and will be something he can pull out in the future to look at and be reminded of.

Know your students work hard.  Their hard work should be recognized where possible.  Our kits help you do so with ease.  Maybe the next time you want to remind someone of their special achievement check out one of our plaque kits to do so.

Preserve Arts and Crafts in a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Oct 23, 2016 | No Comments

Fall is the perfect time of year to craft with your children or on your own.  Colors are vibrant, holidays are approaching and there are plenty of opportunities for people to put nicely crafted projects together and preserve in a plaque.

Halloween is the first Fall holiday you get into.  During that time your little goblins and ghouls may dress up so picture perfectly that you may want to capture that image.  Just about every individual is armed with a high-quality camera in the form of their smart phone.  Along with filters and apps that are available you can make those precious moments look picture perfect.  Why keep those photos to yourself.  Don’t just share them on social media but display them proudly.  Why not develop and blow up the photos?  You can place them on traditional paper, canvas or even silk screened on material.  Once that is complete, you should display it.  Why not use one of our simply to put together Presenta Plaque kits.  They come put together and make it easy to display your item for all to see.  Since they come in sophisticated colors it will match most people’s décor either in their home or office.

This is all the time for family craft projects.  Encourage your children to create cards for their friends and family.  Store bought cards are nice, but they take a lot of the personalization out of things.  Sit down as a family and create an image together.  Maybe it’s a skeleton of sorts, perhaps it is a haunted house that has creatures around it, whatever that image is it will be yours to give out and use.  Save one of those images and once again use a plaque from us to display it.

If you are not the creative type but have received cards from others a Halloween collage could be a lot of fun.   Get some cardstock and take either the whole image or portions of the different cards and glue them to the cardstock.  You can perhaps take a photograph of a Fall scene and cut out the other images to place on that scene which is serving as a backdrop.  By framing and displaying it enables you to remember who gave you cards on the occasion and it may serve as a decoration for future years to come.  Every time you look at the framed art you will immediately be transported back into that time period and remember the events all over again.

Let’s not forget where the concept of “fall” comes from.  Once our foliage begins changing color from the temperature, those leaves then begin to fall.  Those leaves are so vibrant and colorful they are perfect to preserve.  Take a couple of the more vibrant leaves and once again place them on cardstock.  Put them in interesting patterns and designs on the paper.  Buy the liquid that you use when you are planning to decoupage and gently brush it on the leaves that you have laid out.  Once the liquid dries the leaves will remain in place and have a prettier look and texture to them.  Place them inside one of our plaque kits and put them on display.  A series of these types of frames is an easy decoration to put on display in your home or office to represent the season.

Our plaques are versatile and functional and beautiful.  They can be enjoyed for a variety of reasons and are so easy to put together that you will have no problem coming up for a use for them.  Check out our website for styles and ordering information.
