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!
