What makes us different from the others?

Custom cut mattes - we offer a variety of unique eagle and flag shaped mats to choose from, plus we can create custom mat designs with custom-shaped elements such as your logo, product or other design.
Custom cutout acrylic embellishments - custom cutout acrylic embellishments are often imprinted in full color and add a three-dimensional look that makes the award come to life.

Full Color imprinting - photo quality imprinting can be added to any hard, smooth surface such as glass, metal and acrylic to create unique designs.

Multiple imprint methods are combined for a truly unique look that leaves our customers and competition wondering "How did they do that?"
