Perpetual Plaques vs. Traditional Plaques
Perpetual plaques (multi-plate plaques) have been used by organizations of all types for decades for periodic and ongoing recognition over time. They are generally displayed to recognize the contributions of staff, donors, and customers with “Employee of the Month” being one of the most common uses.
While traditional perpetual plaques serve a great purpose, they have remained somewhat unchanged in appearance and are generally some versions of a dark wood plaque with multiple gold or silver engravable plates. In addition to lacking “personality”, there are some common issues that come with modern traditional plaques:
- It takes time to take the plaque to the trophy store to get it updated
- There is a cost to have the plates engraved each time
- Inconsistencies in the font, size, etc. can occur from one plate to the next
- Taking the plaque down, transporting it and having it engraved can result in damage
With over 35 years in the award and trophy industry, we know that there are a variety of ways that organizations can recognize their employees and a multitude of reasons to do so. We also know that there are challenges they face when trying to find the best way to acknowledge their accomplishments and the most meaningful way to deliver the message of appreciation. Do you give them an award? Hand them a gift card? Write and sign a card? Buy them lunch? Host a celebration? What about the time and cost involved to create and maintain your award and recognition programs? What if you are a small business that needs to stay within a budget?
With so many factors, it can be overwhelming enough to make you want to give up before you even start. We urge you not to throw in the towel yet because PlaqueMagic has the solution for all your recognition needs!
