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!

 

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.

Why Plaques are Great for Rewards and Recognition

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

Remember when you were a child and made your parents a drawing?  When we did those things our parents many times proudly displayed this accomplishment on the refrigerator door.  Now fast-forward 20 plus years and we are celebrating another accomplishment.  Why than as adults are we afraid to proudly display that?  Here at Presenta Plaque we say be proud and let us help you show everyone around you what you did.

Some accomplishments that are plaque worthy can include a special award from work, maybe you made an appearance in the local paper, perhaps your child’s team scored big in the Friday night game, whatever it is be proud and show it off.

Some people fear a plaque may come across as gloating, but why think that way?  Plaques can add visual appeal to a room.  Who wants to sit in a room with plain white walls.  Plaques can give you and your guests something to look at.  It can give people a focal point to look at instead feeling the need to stare at you the whole time.  It can take boring to inviting.

Plaques can also be a conversation starter.  Sometimes when there is an ice breaker needed during an interview a plaque that is showing off something can give you something to talk about.  If you are talking about your company’s achievements than a plaque can help you do so.  For the person who’s office you are sitting in, having a plaque there puts them in a position of power and in a comfort zone in front of the guest.

Plaques can also help to establish credibility for not only you but the organization you work for.  Not every potential client will believe what you say you and your company have accomplished, by having a plaque there listing accomplishments it helps substantiate the achievement.  This can be especially vital when you have a piece displayed from an organization vital to your industry.

Plaques can also serve as a motivator.  Employees like to be recognized in front of their peers.  By displaying the accomplishments of employees on a plaque you give people something to strive for.  The same thing can be done for employee achievements from outside the office.  Why not give recognition to employees other accomplishments.  It can be a display put together in a breakroom setting and gives people something to talk about and acknowledge.

Finally, plaques just simply cheer you up.  When you are having a bad day what is better than a simple reminder of a happier time.  It can also serve as a personal motivator for yourself.  It is a reminder of something that you achieved and can be obtained once again.  It reminds you that you have achieved something special and should and deserve to be proud of it.

Presenta Plaque makes displaying these achievements simple and easy.  Our kits make putting it together simple and they are designed to look great on display on either a wall or shelf.  So the next time you’re given a special recognition, remember, Presenta Plaque has you covered.

Show Kids You Care with a Plaque

by Presenta Plaque | on Aug 17, 2016 | No Comments

School is back in session which means in some cases your child has work to do at their job, school, and at home after.  Just because the school year has started it doesn’t mean that household chores get put on hold.  On the contrary, that just means your child may be getting pulled in different directions.

Children need motivation when it comes to keeping up with both schoolwork and housework.  No one wants to do something where they are not recognized for their efforts.  Why not as parents start a recognition program that will help motivate them both at home and at school.

Certificates are an easy way to acknowledge good work and show you care what your child does.  Certificates can be printed off online for just about any topic and subject possible.  They are an easy way to not only recognize a job well done, but that simple bit of encouragement will be a motivation for your child to continue their good work.

There are a lot of topics where parents can print out certificates to recognize their child.  Starting with the work they are responsible for around the house.  No one likes chores, but they especially do not like them when no one recognizes their efforts for doing them.  Why not keep your child motivated by showing them you see what they contribute around the house.

There are some parents that say, ‘why should I recognize my child for doing what is expected of them,’ the answer is simple, because it is a nice pick-me-up.  When you are at work, you do what is expected of you, but you still enjoy when the boss or someone tells you when you did a job well done.  The feeling is no different when it comes to your child.  Maybe your children have a hard time getting along with one another, maybe they don’t enjoy picking up their things in their room or making a bed or helping with dinner.  Perhaps a certificate or reward system will be just the motivation they need.  Maybe your child made their bed without being reminded.  Perhaps they handled a disagreement with a sibling in a civilized manner or maybe they offered to help with dinner before being asked.  All of these things deserve some sort of recognition.  A certificate or plaque may be the thing that motivates them to keep helping out on their own.

School is another area where you can celebrate your child’s accomplishments.  Not every student is good at every subject.  Some students struggle with subjects like English and Math.  Why not recognize when they do well in these challenging subjects.  A high score on an assignment, quiz or test is a big deal for a child who has to work twice as hard for those good grades.  You can print off something that tells them about a job well done.  Maybe a perfect attendance recognition is in order.  Maybe your child isn’t particularly athletic but did well in gym class.  Whatever it is it takes no effort to put it down on paper.

Once you get those awards together, place them on one of our plaque kits.  They make displaying the award simple and fun.  What kid doesn’t enjoy their friends walking in and seeing an award given to them on display.  The kits are simple to use and hang with ease.

Psychologists say these recognitions are vital to your child’s development.  They help them develop a stronger sense of self-esteem.  That boost in confidence is enough to keep them motivated to keep up the good work.

Call us today and we can get you started with one of these kits.  You will be surprised on how easy they are to put together.  More importantly you will be excited to see the end result on your wall and what it does for your child’s self-esteem.

Celebrate Educational Accomplishments with Plaques

by Presenta Plaque | on Mar 11, 2016 | No Comments

Graduation is coming up in a couple of months, and it will arrive here quickly.  Do not wait until the last minute to award your favorite graduate and make them feel special with a custom plaque.  If you work at a place of education, and you have a graduation coming up, Presenta Plaque can do plaques in bulk as well.  Everyone deserves recognition after they graduate. School is tough, and getting to graduation is a feat.  No matter what graduation it is, it is an accomplishment.  Also, the end of the year awards ceremonies for elementary and middle schools are coming up as well, it’s time to start planning what you are going to give your favorite student.

 

A lot of schools award their students every quarter year or every six weeks for honor roll, perfect attendance and special recognitions.  Nothing will brighten a student’s day like a plaque created just for them.  Kids are thrilled to be recognized, and they want to feel special.  If a student sees that their name is engraved on their award forever, they will always remember the moment when their accomplishment was recognized in front of their educators and their peers.  Let’s be honest with ourselves, winning always makes us feel good.  Sometimes winning an award just for participating is nice, but it just makes us equal to everyone else, but being acknowledged as someone who is the best or has worked hard is always an honor.  We do not always want to be equal to everyone else, especially when our efforts are so much more than others, so make your students feel special!

 

Some ceremonies or occasions that a custom plaque may be appropriate for is graduation from high school, college or a training program.  Recognition for an honor roll, perfect attendance or academic competitions such as spelling bee’s or math competitions is also a nice treat for a plaque.

 

If you have kids at home who are accomplishing so much in school right now, get a plaque that has a nameplate on it with their name, and every time they receive an award at school, come and get in engraved with the award name and the date.  This will be a great memento for your child as they are growing up, and they can continue the tradition with their children.
To get your custom plaque for your soon-to-be graduates or award-winning students, call Presenta Plaque today to start your order at 800-824-2930 or visit our website at presentaplaque.com

Awarding the Little Athletes in Your Life

by Presenta Plaque | on Feb 18, 2016 | No Comments

If you’re lucky enough you probably have a few or more kid athletes you root for every Sunday or two. Kids often get involved in sports from a young age and for most of them, just getting to play on the field is reward enough and for parents, just being able to cheer them on is a great experience in itself.

 

But for those parents looking to encourage kids to continue participating in this healthy lifestyle even as they grow older, it’s important to remind them why this lifestyle is important for them and why it matters to you. As kids grow older and start to take interest in tablets and smartphone screens, it becomes a parent’s job to push them to continue leading a healthy and active lifestyle. Here are some great ways to encourage them:

 

1. Involve Yourself

As a busy parent, it’s easy to take on the role of chauffer and occasionally ask how the game went. But it’s important to let your kids know that you’re still cheering for them whether that means buying the team some pizza after the game or wearing their jersey number!

 

2. Go to Their Games

Whether they’re cool enough to say it or not, kids really do like having their parents in the stands cheering them on. Sure, they understand parents are busy, but at the end of the day they’ll be thankful you took time out of your schedule to come see them do their best.

 

3. Reward Them

Win or not, as a parent, you’re allowed to reward them. Many believe that the “trophy just for showing up” philosophy leads to more damage in the real world than it does good, but if you can’t be there to give them the high five at the end of the day, who will?

 

4. Have the Family Help Show Support

Have the family get together and make some jerseys with their number before a big game. It will mean a lot to them to see even the pesky little brothers or sisters taking their time to show them they’re rooting for them too.

 

5. Give Them Their Own Plaque

No matter how the season, went let them know sometimes your best is all you got with a plaque of their very own. Engrave it with their name, number and team name and add a message that says exactly what you want to say. It’s a piece they’ll cherish even when their soccer championship days are long gone.

Bring Lunch

Bring a catered lunch to your local fire station, police station or hospital. All of the employees will truly appreciate your effort to make them feel special!

Start a Support Group

A lot of families and spouses of first responders go through emotions and feelings some people just would not understand. If they had a safe place to talk about their struggles, it could greatly benefit their mental health and their family.

Are you having an awards party this season? We have a few tricks up our sleeves to make it the most unforgettable party of the year—try these tips to make it a party your friends will talk about for years to come.

• Make invitations that are black and gold with the same font as the Oscars
• Include the activities that are going to happen at the party in the invitation – especially superlatives

• Make a dress code for the event (black tie affair) – let them know there will be a photographer present
• Have a red carpet with someone taking pictures of everyone who arrives — maybe have some cutouts of the nominees to get photos with–make sure to capture a few photos. Ladies are very picky about how they look in photos!
• Have a photo printer available at the end of the red carpet, so everyone can have a picture of themselves with their favorite actor or actress
• Have ballots at the end of the red carpet, so people can vote on superlatives (best dressed, best hair, comedian, etc.)
• Get a photo booth with fun accessories like moustaches, hats, glasses, etc.
• In the restroom, have a basket of a few things that are needed for emergencies like bobby pins, hairspray, deodorant and various other hygiene products.
• Serve Hors D’oeuvres that are A-list approved
• Make a couple of drinks named after your favorite actors or actresses (or movie). Make sure the drink matches the personality of the actor or movie!
• Rent an old time popcorn machine and have black and gold bags made to match the occasion. Load it up with extra butter!
• Serve gold glittery desserts (glitter cupcakes, cake balls, etc.) Yes, there is edible glitter.
• At the end of the night, give out awards made by yours truly, Presenta Plaque, for the superlative winners

If you follow these 11 tips, you are guaranteed to have the party of a lifetime—at least until next year.
