I work with Award 1 Engraving on a regular basis and have engravings done on acrylic and burl stands for our clients here at the gallery. The jobs are consistently done early and exactly the way we ask for. I am always happy with the results. Rusty communicates well and is a very reliable, responsible owner. He’s my go-to person for all engraving jobs. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I am the owner of Eastmont Custom Framing, a picture framing business established in Easthampton, MA since 2001. I have over the years many opportunities to work with Award 1 and have always been very happy with their services. The quality of the work is outstanding and the owner Rusty will work with you until you’re totally satisfied with your order. He has never said no to a rush job, and I’ve had quite a few. Dealing with such a high performing local business makes you aware of the superiority in service of a locally owned and operated business, as compared to large chains or anonymous online operations.

It has been a pleasure to work with Award 1 Engraving for all of our trophies and awards. Rusty is a true professional who understands the needs of his clients and goes out of his way to meet those needs. It makes my job easier to know that Award 1 Engraving will provide us with a quality product, on time, for a fair price. I also know that if any of our awards require special attention I can count on Rusty to get the job done.

I have been purchasing trophies and plaques for Northampton Friends for Football with Rusty at Award 1 Engraving for the past three years and have known him for many more. The quality of his work is excellent, timely, and the pricing has been extremely competitive! Beyond that though Rusty has always been friendly, helpful and more than willing to do what it takes to make us happy. I wish I had been a customer of Award 1 Engraving for longer and will continue to purchase our year end awards from Rusty for as long as he continues his business.

We, here at Northeast Center for Youth and Families have worked with Award 1 Engraving for over 2 years now, and love the quick response and accuracy of Rusty’s work. He lends his expertise in helping to find the perfect item for every occasion. He has designed and implemented, getting us the perfect awards/name plates/anniversary clocks for special occasions. We highly recommend his work and will continue to utilized his business and skills in the future!

Thank you,

I have been very impressed by the “standing ovation” and the superb engraving crown with Leonardo Da Vinci art. It was probably one of the happiest day of my life. With my warmest wishes for you, your family and your staff.”

For exemplary work, I recommend Rusty at Award 1 Engraving. Rusty took an undeveloped idea I had for a staff award and turned it into a beautiful memorial plaque that we now display in our national office. Rusty’s knowledge of materials, aesthetic design sense, and years of experience enabled him to create this award, and all within the constraints of our brand logo, design elements and budget. He also took the extra step to find the exact materials I wanted for this unique award. We are very pleased to have this custom-made plaque on our wall that truly reflects who we are.
