What to Write on a Certificate Inside a Presenta Plaque

by PresentaAdmin | on Aug 11, 2017 | No Comments

Whether you’re a business owner, non-profit, or a government agency, no doubt you’re needing at least a box of Presenta Plaques to keep on hand.

Even though you have the recipients picked out for the plaque, you might not be sure of the right words to use. Basically, there are no firm rules on how to word an award certificate, but there are some helpful guidelines to make it look more professional.

On most certificates, there are seven wording sections. As long as you put the title and name of the recipient, you can pretty much do what you want on the rest. For example, “Certificate of Appreciation” followed by the recipient’s name.

In between the title and name, you can always put the presentation line. i.e. Certificate of Appreciation is awarded to John Smith. Then you have the option of putting who the certificate is from whether it’s your name or your business. “….is awarded to John Smith by Mrs. Jones or by the Smith Company.”

If you wish, you can write a short paragraph about why the person is receiving the award. You can also add the date and a signature. Signatures make the certificate look more legitimate. Usually, a single signature line is either aligned to the right or centered. A graphic or a seal can also be placed in the lower right or left-hand corner.

So many options are available. If you haven’t already, order your box of Presenta Plaques now so you’ll be sure to have them for that special occasion.

When you walk into a restaurant, what’s the first thing you see? You might notice the decor or maybe paintings on the wall, plants, hostess stand, bar, and so on. If it’s a fast food restaurant, your eyes probably immediately go to the menu board.

You might also observe plaques on the wall. Restaurants always like to brag about a write-up in the local paper. A plaque is a classy way to display the article.

When food inspectors visit restaurants, they typically hand out certificates for perfect or near perfect scores. Why not show-off all the hard work of your staff and display the certificate in a Presenta Plaque for customers to see?

While these are just a couple of reasons on why you should order plaques, keep in mind, there are plenty of other uses for them at a restaurant. When an employee goes the extra mile, what a great way to recognize all of their hard work than with a plaque? If you haven’t already done so, you could start an “Employee of the Month” program, giving a plaque out each time to the winner. Recognizing managers for a job well done is also another great idea for a Presenta Plaque.

In addition to presenting plaques to employees, make duplicate plaques so you can prominently display them for customers. It’ll send a strong message you care about your staff. You could even do a customer appreciation day where you offer discounts, displayed on a plaque at the front, or recognize loyal customers by presenting them with a plaque.

As you can see, there are so many uses for Presenta Plaques at restaurants. Order at least a box or two today! You’ll quickly be going through them.

Show Volunteers You Appreciate Them with a Presenta Plaque!

Whether you run a non-profit organization or have volunteers’ at your business, a Presenta Plaque is always a great way to show your appreciation!

Many times, charity leaders don’t have the money to properly show how much they appreciate their volunteers through a monetary gift. Other times, you want to thank an individual on-the-spot. By ordering a box of Presents Plaques, you’ll always have one on hand to give to that special volunteer who goes the extra mile!

Thanking volunteers is not only good manners but a great way to build relationships. Recognizing these individuals with a plaque could prompt them to continue volunteering or maybe donate to your cause. When their friends and family members see their Presenta Plaque, it could also encourage them to get involved with your cause and volunteer and/or donate.

Research shows that personalization is best. When you slip that paper recognition into a Presenta Plaque, it should have a personalized message, preferably from someone of significance in the organization. It shows you’ve taken the time and given thought into the wording, as well as makes it apparent that you know exactly the contributions of the volunteer.

Many volunteers/donors also don’t want much money spent on them. By giving them an expensive gift or even a gift card, that could make many feel uncomfortable. A plaque is an inexpensive way of showing your gratitude.

Giving plaques to all volunteers shows that you’re being fair and not giving one person more than another. Plaques show you’re treating all volunteers equally!

What are you waiting for? Order your box of Presents Plaques now for your charitable organization.

Business Owners Should Always have Plaques Ready to Give Out

by Presenta Plaque | on Jun 14, 2017 | No Comments

Whether you’re a business owner, CEO, or other top-level executives, you never know when the occasion could present itself to give out a Presenta Plaque.

Maybe it’s to recognize a job well done by an employee. A plaque is also a great way to recognize anniversary dates or even an employee of the month. Plaques are definitely great morale boosters. You can also use a Presenta Plaque to recognize those with new job titles.

Maybe you’re having a grand opening of a new building or maybe even a new area within your current office. Why not give your business or office some recognition with a neat plaque commemorating the opening date? Put the plaque at the entrance so everyone can see it walking in.

Do you have a historical building or landmark? Or is there something historic in your office from a previous company or ownership? Maybe an old photo? Displaying a Presenta Plaque is a great way to draw attention to the landmark or item on display.

In addition to historical displays, a plaque is a nice way to remember an employee who has passed on. A Presenta Plaque can be used to dedicate a bench, tree or some other place that might have been special to that person.

These are just a few suggestions on why, as an employer, you should keep a box full of plaques on hand. Of course, it doesn’t take us long to ship plaques in case you run out.

Everyone Loves a Presenta Plaque — Even the White House!

by Presenta Plaque | on May 22, 2017 | No Comments

When you think of plaques, you might think of using it for a graduation certificate or an award you’re presenting to someone. But there are so many other great uses for a Presenta Plaque. Even the White House finds unique ways of using Presents Plaques. “They’re frequent customers, I talk to them a little,” said General Manager Maurice Fitzgerald.

“My customer list is probably the most varied and diverse group that you’ll ever see. Everything from large federal agencies to the Department of Defense, some of the embassies overseas, secret service, the Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement (ICE) training in Georgia, they buy a lot of plaques from me.” added Maurice.

“So, everything from them down to the smallest little town you can find and their chamber of commerce who buys one box from me every five years and everything in-between.”  That includes schools, police departments, fire departments, colleges, and non-profit organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the American Cancer Society.

Most of Maurice’s orders are from people giving them out. “Most of them are organizations that want to recognize people but realize they can’t spend a fortune but they want to make an impression,” said Maurice. “And when you hand someone a piece of paper, it’s not much of a lasting impression. The success of our plaques has been that the perceived value is much higher than the actual cost. So people can buy some of our plaques for $10 a piece and give them out and they make a bigger impact than that.”

Presenta Plaque does not do engraving but rather sells plaques where you can slip a certificate into. Maurice describes it like selling picture frames.

“We sell the pieces for the plaque itself so that they can create a plaque.”

“Anyone out there, whether it’s the art department in schools, a creative person at the police department — they’re doing their own certificates, whether they’re printing it in-house or getting them local,” said Maurice. “And then they can update them on their own computer and print, grab out plaque and slide it into.”

Whatever the occasion, a Presenta Plaque is a great way to recognize that someone special!

The History of Presenta Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on May 12, 2017 | No Comments

Presenta Plaque has been a family run business in Tempe for 23 years. “My in-laws started it from nothing,” said General Manager Maurice Fitzgerald. “They started it back on Long Island, NY.” That was over 30 years ago.

The business was already up and running when Maurice entered the Air Force after college. He was stationed at the former Williams Air Force Base in the Southeast Valley. “I stayed for six years in the Air Force and never left Williams Air Force Base.” He got out in 1991.

Since Maurice already established roots in the valley, he decided to stay and went to work for an airline. Well, the in-laws didn’t like the idea of being so far away.

“About the time they had their first grandson in Phoenix, they decided ‘why are we in New York and our only child and grandson is in Phoenix?,’” said Maurice. “So they pulled up roots and moved a portion of the business, sold the rest, and moved it out here.”

The timing couldn’t have been better for Maurice. At the time, I was laid-off by an airline which was about the same time they showed up. So me and my six-month-old son and my in-laws started this location.”

Along with Maurice and his wife, there are three other employees. The founders have since retired. The company markets and sell plaques online to all over the United States and to many other countries.

As a veteran, Maurice supports other Veteran Owned Businesses.

Reasons to Give a Presenta Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Apr 27, 2017 | No Comments

Take a look around your office. Does it look a little bare? Maybe what’s missing is a Presenta Plaque. In fact, all offices look better with plaques hanging on the walls. It’s a good way to promote your achievements for others to see.

Presenta Plaques are also visually appealing. Picture a wall with nothing on it vs. a wall filled with plaques. Which do you think looks more impressive to clients or even business associates? Plaques are definitely a great decorating tool.

A Presenta Plaque is also a great start for a conversation. When visitors notice a plaque in your office with your achievements, it’ll create a good first impression. But many times it’ll prompt them to ask questions, starting a positive conversation.

Plaques are also a good way to establish credibility. Even though a client might have a good idea of your expertise and what you do, seeing your accomplishments hanging on a wall plaque can be even more impressive. A plaque showcasing your company also lends credibility.

A Presenta Plaque can also be a motivational tool for employees. Hanging plaques outside your office about the company’s success that also includes information about the contributions of employees, can be a real pick-me-up.

If nothing else, plaques are cheerful and can be a great reminder of your achievements, especially on days that are a little more challenging.
