Rewarding Others

Real Estate Offices are a Great Place to Hang Plaques

by Presenta Plaque | on Jan 24, 2018 | No Comments

When walking into a real estate office, usually one of the first things you see are trophies and awards. The broker obviously wants to earn your business and displaying their credentials, licenses and awards is a good way to do it.

We think the best way to display licenses, newspaper write-ups, customer reviews and awards is with a Presenta Plaque. You could dedicate a whole wall or a section of a wall to promoting your brokerage firm.

Have you received great ratings from the Better Business Bureau? Why not display it on a plaque? What about the Chamber of Commerce and other community organizations? Many times, certificates are handed out but often not displayed. We make it easy for you to show-off your awards. Certificates can easily be slipped into one of our Presenta Plaques, making it easy to display within minutes.

By ordering a box of Presenta Plaques, you’ll have extras on hand to award top-performing real estate agents. You can also use them to showcase your agents with their photos and credentials.

Plaques also make a nice housewarming gift to a client after they buy a house. What better way for a real estate agent to express their appreciation for a client’s business than with a plaque?

What’s nice about our plaques is that they’re compact and professional looking and fit in nicely on any wall or decor.

Gym Plaques

It’s the New Year and that means many of people are either returning to the gym or signing up. With so many gyms to choose from, if you’re an owner or manager of one, you’ll want to do what you can to make sure your facility stands out!

We can think of no better way to do this than with a Presenta Plaque. It’s a great way to communicate with your clients and potential clients about what your gym is all about and display any accomplishments or awards your fitness facility has received.

A Presenta Plaque is also a great way to display weekly or monthly offers or discounts. Even if it’s displaying a photo of management interacting with customers or photos of gym members, a plaque is a great way to go!

In addition to hanging plaques in the front of the gym or sales office, think about displaying awards and promotional offers in the locker rooms so regular customers can view them.

If you have personal trainers, you might want to award them with a plaque for a job well-done or use a plaque as a way to display customer compliments or reviews.

A Presenta Plaque is also a great way to display signs like “No Food or Drink in Gym”.

What are you waiting for? Order a box of Presenta Plaques today and get the New Year started off right!

Labor Union Plaques

If you belong to a Labor Union, you probably already know the importance of recognizing individuals for their hard work and accomplishments. What better way to do this than with a Presenta Plaque?

Union members work tirelessly to negotiate better pay and benefits for employees. The first national labor federation that was the first to survive a few years was established in 1869. At one point they had 700,000 members! They set goals of an eight-hour workday, equal pay for equal work and the banning of child labor.

After that, labor unions gained strength and eventually evolved into what they are today. One in nine U.S. workers or rather 16 million is represented by unions. There are chapters all around the country! That’s all the more reason to order several boxes of Presenta Plaques to have on hand. Our plaques even make great retirement gifts!

If you’re wondering what should go on these plaques other than the name, any personalization such as a quote or a few facts about the union member is a nice touch. Photos also work well along with an insignia of the union.

Presenta Plaques are great for even non-union member employees. It seems in every workplace, someone is always doing something that deserves recognition. Plaques make great birthday gifts, too!

Order several boxes of our plaques today to have on hand so you’ll always be ready!

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, our family at Presenta Plaque has a lot to be thankful for, including our great customers!

For all of you who have ordered plaques throughout the years, we thank you! We also hope you will keep us in mind heading into the New Year.

If you own a business, such as a restaurant, a Presenta Plaque is a classy way to display a write-up in the local paper and a certificate bragging about a great food inspection score.

Don’t forget about your employees. When they go the extra mile, what a great way to recognize all of their hard work than with a plaque? Be sure to include the employee’s name, date and/or date they started with your company, the company name along with an award title.

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.

During this season of giving, you might want to recognize that special volunteer. Thanking volunteers is not only good manners but a great way to build relationships. 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.

Think about people at your church. As part of the congregation, you might want to do something nice for a person in charge whether it’s the minister, priest, rabbi, or someone else on the administrative staff.

Of course, there’s always going to be special occasions such as the birth of a new baby or baby dedications, weddings, anniversaries, or retirements. A plaque is a nice way to mark the special day! 

Going into the New Year, there are plenty of reasons why you should order a box of plaques from us.  Order today!

Honor an Educator During National Educators Week

by Presenta Plaque | on Nov 02, 2017 | No Comments

The National Education Association (NEA) – American Education Week is coming up November 13-17, 2017. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate public education and recognize those individuals who make a difference in educating children.

A Presenta Plaque is a great way to recognize these teachers and other professionals. Buy a box or two and distribute the plaques to all of the outstanding people who make a difference at a child’s school.

Even though the occasion is only a couple of weeks away, we can get your plaques to you if you order right away. Normal ground shipping takes five days.

Below is the theme for this year’s celebration. Make sure to get enough Presenta Plaques to honor those special people every day of the week.

◦ Monday, November 13, 2017: Kickoff Day

◦ Tuesday, November 14, 2017: Parents Day

◦ Wednesday, November 15, 2017: Education Support Professionals Day

◦ Thursday, November 16, 2017: Educator for a Day

◦ Friday, November 17, 2017: Substitute Educators Day

The first American Education Week was observed on December 4-10, 1921. It came about since it was discovered during World War I, 25-percent of the country’s draftees were illiterate. So, representatives of the NEA and the American Legion met in 1919 to brainstorm ideas to generate public support for education.

In 1921, the NEA in Des Moines, Iowa called for designating one week each year to spotlight public education in all communities. It’s always celebrated the week before Thanksgiving.

What are you waiting for? Order a box of Presenta Plaques today and honor that special educator!

’Tis the Season to Give a Plaque

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

You probably would rather not think about it but the holidays are right around the corner. There are parties to plan, decorations to put up and gifts to give. Speaking of gifts, finding that perfect gift for a family member or friend can be a challenge. But what about employees?

There’s no better way to show your appreciation for a job well done than a Presenta Plaque. Order a box or two and you’ll have enough to give one to each of your employees.

A Presenta Plaque can be a unique keepsake that employees will cherish for years. Be sure to include the employee’s name, date and/or date they started with your company, the company name along with an award title.

The award title can be basic such as “Star Performer”, “Service Award”, “Over Achiever” and so on. But you could always have some fun with the awards by giving them to the “Best Baker” (for potlucks), “Best Organizer”, “Best Office Decor”, “Office Comedian”, “The Socializer”, “Best Coffee Maker” etc.

You might find employees displaying these plaques on their office or cubicle walls. Or they might take their Presenta Plaque home and find a good spot to show it off to family and friends.

Bottom line, it’ll be different than anything your employees have probably received and the plaque will have special meaning since you put some thought into it.

If you end up doing an end-of-the-year party, it would be the perfect time to hand out plaques to employees. An office gathering works well, too.

You might want to keep some extra Presenta Plaques on hand for the rest of the year in case you want to recognize a promotion, retirement or some other accomplishment of an employee!

Government Officials Give Presenta Plaques to say Thanks!

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.

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.

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.
