4 Considerations to Make for Your Engraved Awards

Engraved awards are wonderful for any business. In fact, 68% of those in human resources stated that they had a positive effect on employee retention and 56% stated they were a great recruitment tool, according to the Society of Human Resource Management. If you're looking into custom engraving for your company awards, here are some things to think about.

1. Include a Logo or Visual

Remember to have more than a font-only design. Those never stand out. Incorporate a logo, image, or other visual into the mix. These can be anything related to the company giving the award, the person receiving the award, or a project they were involved with. No matter what the design represents, it's one way to make sure that the recipient feels accomplished every time they look at it.

2. Pull Inspiration From Online

Search for some images through sites like Pinterest to see some creative designs. This can provide some inspiration for creating your own. Create a list of the things you like, whether it's the style, color, font, or another element. Do a rough sketch of different ideas so that you can come up with perfect trophies to show your custom engraving shop. Including the shop in the thought process can have them help with some trendy choices. 

3. Invest in the Font, Shape, and Color

There is a wealth of different shapes, colors, and fonts out there to help expand your custom engraving into a masterpiece. Getting into the creative part of awards is a fun way to stand out from the crowd and make sure that the recipient loves what they receive. Always try to see the colors and how it all looks on a mock-up before ordering so you can make sure that everything is perfect

4. Get the Details Right

Make sure that you have information on the award. The date of the presentation, the name of the recipient, the reason for the award, and the organization presenting the accomplishment are all popular. These are the basic essentials, but you can personalize them with meaningful quotes, mottos, or other details.
