Testimonials from Bennett Awards Customers
We really enjoyed working with Bennett Awards. Our design was non-standard and they worked with us to make it a reality: a 3D M cut in half along the vanishing point to symbolize a half marathon. Throughout the process, as our project gained internal momentum as the First Annual Facebook Half Marathon, they worked with us to create a second design – a medal for 12 of the winners – that matched the main trophy. It was so beautiful we had it on display at the finish line and received many compliments from Facebook employees and designers. This is no easy audience to impress and we made an impression. On time, responsive, and true to imagined form – thanks, we will be using them again!
Jared Morgenstern, Facebook Inc.
We received the Heart of Gold Award that we ordered less than a week ago a few hours ago and it is absolutely stunning and perfect!
Your staff is to be commended for filling our expedited request without blinking an eye, up to and including the engraved marble base. I am certain that tomorrow evening, the recipients will be as impressed as I was with the craftsmanship and artistic talent that this sculpture represents.
Thanks again to you and everyone at Bennett. It is easy to see why you are truly the leaders in your industry and excel at customer service. Next time, we will try to give your team more than a week’s advance notice!
Mike Triantafellou, CEO & President, Handee Marts, Inc. (7-Eleven)
Some years ago, BloodSource wanted to change the way that we expressed our gratitude to members of our volunteer Board of Trustees for their service. We wanted to give something unique, lasting and of the local community. Giving sculptures designed by Bennett Awards was a perfect choice. We initially purchased sculptures from the Bennett Award collection. As the recipients expressed their admiration and gratitude for these beautiful works of art, we went on to contract for a numbered run of a specific sculpture, which made the recognition even more special. As BloodSource grew and changed, we commissioned Tom Bennett to create a distinctive rendition of our newly stylized logo in bronze. Each time this sculpture is presented to one of our valued supporters, it is with great pride that we say it was designed and created specifically for BloodSource.
Needless to say, recipients are honored to receive such a beautiful Bennett award sculpture in recognition of their service – the award is beautiful, exciting, and a wonderful addition to a home or office. The quality and artistry is excellent. We expect to continue to provide Bennett Awards long into the future.
Mike Fuller, Chief Executive Officer, BloodSource
As the Director of Development for USA Wrestling, a member of the United States Olympic Committee, I would like to express my overall satisfaction with my experience working with Bennett Awards. We needed an award that exemplified the lifetime efforts of two of our most honored patrons. Bennett Awards had a near perfect design…they were able to adapt it in subtle ways to make it just what we required.
From beginning to end, my experiences have been a pleasure. Timeliness, artistic excellence and flexibility were some of the things I appreciated most from Bennett Awards. It was the recipients however, that provided the best testimonial…both remarked about the remarkable appearance within their acceptance remarks…and future recipients will too because I plan to return to Bennett Awards for my future elite recognition awards.
Larry Nugent, Director of Development, USA Wrestling
It was such a relief and joy to find Bennett Gallery & Awards. We had a very specific idea in mind for a monthly peer recognition award, and we were unable to find a company willing to partner in such a creative way with us – until we found Bennett Gallery & Awards! They provided great customer service right from the start, beginning with conception of the art work all the way to the final personalized mold for our award. On top of that, they were so understanding and flexible with our needs when the launch date for our award was unexpectedly pushed out by 7 months. When we were able to officially launch this program, they were quick to expedite our order and ensure we received a great product we’d be proud to show off. I would recommend Bennett Gallery & Awards in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking for high-quality, unique, and creative items – what better way to recognize someone than with a genuine work of art!
Dominique Lewis, Lucky Brand
Bennett Awards is an amazing company. They always get the job done no matter what it takes and they look out for you along the way. My organization has been working with them for a number of years and we would not take our award business to any other company.
Emily Silverman, TechAmerica Foundation / American Technology Awards
The team at Bennett Awards was nothing short of a pleasure to work with. They were professional and the entire process, from concept to executive, was absolutely seamless. I ordered a custom piece for our organization's biggest fundraiser, which had to be as beautiful and meaningful as his actual campaign...and it certainly was!! So many of the attendees at the awards ceremony commented on how stunning the piece was, and how unique of an award it was. The team at Bennett Awards went above and beyond, as I ordered from out of state and had very specific shipping and delivery needs. Their customer service is second to none, and I would definitely order from this company going forward for any award needs.
Samantha Masterson, American Liver Foundation
Bennett Awards was extremely helpful in the development and execution of the custom Bentley Driving awards. All the awards arrived on schedule and we received numerous accolades on their quality and unique design.
Jon DiVaio, Bentley Motors Inc.
This is my second year of having discovered and used the services of Bennett Awards. My only regret was that I didn't discover them ten years ago. The vast array of high quality, artistic, and stunning awards from which to choose allows one to both personalize the award and emphasize the recipients particular contributions. Working with Alice and the people at Bennett Awards is just the icing on the cake. They are caring, responsive, and professional in every way a custom would want. I give them the award for customer service and excellent product!
Nancy Bornn, Bornn & Surls
Bennett Awards was an outstanding partner in this awards design process. We were looking for unique corporate awards that really captured our core company values in a striking and elegant way. Bennett Awards really captured our energy in this award. In addition, the staff at Bennett Awards was wonderful to work with. They kept our project on time and on budget, even as our deadline fast approached. I'm very satisfied with the service we received. Our corporate awards were very large and a little precarious to ship, so Bennett Awards went the extra mile and personally drove the awards to our event in San Diego, ensuring that our event and our awards were a success. I will definitely work with Bennett Awards again.
Lauren Krause, NuVasive, Inc.
The contest went incredibly well and the trophy was a massive hit! Here's a link to our facebook page which has all the content from the contest: "Facebook Hacker Cup Page". Here's some photos: "Facebook Hacker Cup Photos". And here's a video of the event: "Facebook Hacker Cup Video". Thanks again for all your work on making this trophy come to life.
Matt Millunchick, Facebook Inc.
We choose Bennett Awards because of the creativity and beauty we say in their awards. We are thrilled with the attention to detail and care the team at Bennett Awards showed with our awards. They were an absolute joy to work with - lovely people who truly enjoy what they do. That pride shows through in their work and in their dedication to delivering stellar customer service.
Sarah Sasman Jacoby, Make a Wish Foundation of America
I found Bennett Awards through a quick Google search online. They have a thorough website that was attractive and informative so I called right away. Debi was incredibly helpful, and really pushed to get the award done in the short amount of time that we had. She met the deadline and the awards turned out AMAZING. We were thrilled with the outcome, and the recipients were blown away. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Stephanie Decker, Clarisonic A L’Oréal Company
I was just thrilled with the whole experience of working with Bennett Awards, from start to finish. Mollee was just wonderful, and made me feel as if my order was the most important job she had. She answered every question I had (and I had a LOT!!) quickly and thoroughly, and - more importantly - was able to translate my vague requests ("well, I don't know - maybe something in red?") into unique and gorgeous designs. The awards themselves were just exquisite, and unlike anything I've seen before. It was especially nice to see part of our logo - a stylized book - incorporated into the stand of one of the awards. This was a truly special touch, and I know it was noticed and appreciated by the recipients. Each year there's some pretty fierce rivalry between publishers for this award, and I fully expect the campaigning and competition to start very early for next year's award - all because every pub will want their own version of this year's beautiful, beautiful glass art pieces!
Laura Pennock, Readerlink Distribution Services, LLC
Absolutely loved working with Bennett Awards! Three weeks before our event, we created a new awards program that hinged on having "the perfect award - with just the right look - yet unique in its own way" kind of award for our first recipient and all the future recipients. This award is only awarded once a year to individuals/companies making a difference; our award needed to be as special as our recipients.
Bennett Awards website was my first experience with the company and very helpful in finding that perfect award. There were so many awards to choose from in their web galleries but when I found the Hearts of Fire award, I knew that was our winner! I sent an email and heard back from them right away. I explained the importance and urgency of getting this award since our event was only 3 weeks away and no other award would work for what I needed. We were under a tight time crunch but Bennett Awards made it happen!
And I'm at a loss for words to describe the beauty of this award when we received it. It truly was a work of art. Our first ever recipient was not only honored to receive this award but thrilled to own such a beautiful award. Everyone I worked with at Bennett's was super friendly and helpful. I would recommend Bennett Awards time and time again!
Michele Hines, SYNC
Bennett Awards did a great job fulfilling our needs and providing high quality awards. In addition, they were great in assisting with a quick turnaround on some additional plates needed for a perpetual trophy when the original vendor was unable to supply the plates in a timely and cost appropriate manner. I greatly appreciated the fast response time to inquiries and the great customer service.
Anne McPherson, Nestlé Direct Store Delivery
Bennett Awards collaborated with me on two separate awards for retiring senior management personnel. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted the award to look like, but had some strict "non-negotiables" as well. The artists help me to firm up the appearance and form of the awards, both of which are unique and represent important aspects of our company business. The results are beautiful and very complimentary. The retiring folks were highly regarded in the company and in the industry for technical understanding of complex equipment.
Bill Goedde, Duke Energy
I was so impressed with the customer service I received at Bennett Awards. They had incredible attention to detail, always advised me widely, and delivered the awards in a timely fashion. Our recipient cried at the beauty of the award as it was truly an incredible work of art.
Laurie Kirby, Executive Director, International Film and Music Festival Conference
I can't begin to say enough good things about Bennett Gallery and the work you've done on the one-of-a-kind 'ELF' Award you produced to honor my wife, her writing career and the endowed scholarship in her name. Keith Shannon of your staff took a crude sketch I made for him and a conceptual idea I had and brought to life a spectacular piece of sculpture that will be given to students of creative writing and fiction each year for decades to come.
It was a pleasure working with everyone at Bennett Gallery and the results of this project were beautifully-executed. I would recommend your services to anyone seeking superior craftsmanship, vision and the outstanding work that you're known for.
Michael Brown, Michael Brown Productions
Bennett Awards provided us with an exceptional level of service. Our award was beautifully crafted and made a huge impact at our awards presentation. Their customer service was also exceptional - even though they were supplying a customer on a completely different continent they were helpful, easy to contact, delivered the award speedily and made the process of commissioning the award completely smooth. Thank you!
Elizabeth Fulton, PA to Chief Executive, Incorporated Society of Musicians
For five years now, we have had Bennett Awards provide us with awards to present to American rock legends, and we have been extremely happy with all of them. The quality and service is excellent, and working with Bennett Awards has been a smooth and easy process every time.
Jeff Schrader, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
Bennett Awards comes highly recommended. The staff is friendly, professional and engaging. They will go to great lengths to make sure you receive your shipment on time, and the awards themselves are beautiful. Our organization has had nothing but positives experiences with Bennett Awards, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.
D'Laney Gielow, Planned Parenthood Federation of America
I have attached pictures of the award being presented at our event. I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am for your dedication to complete and total customer satisfaction. We have received numerous compliments on your work. The “Union” sculpture award was beautiful and perfect for the occasion. Despite these compliments, few know what went on behind the scenes. And it is exactly that, the behind the scenes process, that I was most impressed with. The Bennett Awards team put together our request in just a few short hours. They were not pushy in any way and only concerned themselves with creating our award in both a timely and efficiently manner. We called Bennett Awards about a week before our event and were pressed for time, but they assured us we would receive the award in plenty of time. Sure enough, our package arrived the very next day. I would most definitely use Bennett Awards again, and plan to do so in the near future. Thanks for everything!
Cristina E. Maqueda, Administrative Assistant to the Associate Vice Provost, Texas Tech University
Bennett Awards & Gallery provided us with the best customer care and went above and beyond what we expected. The sculpture award we received was an exceptional piece; very unique, finely crafted, made of the best materials, and most importantly - conveyed utmost elegance.
The recipient was pleased to receive the Succeed award because it signified a very special accomplishment and commemorated a special occasion, not only for the individual, but for our organization as a whole.
We've worked with many other award companies in the past but have never received the same type of service comparable to Bennett Awards. We would definitely consider your company for our future award needs. Everyone there was helpful and accommodating, and seemed on top of everything. Every time I called or emailed, I received a response from a qualified expert almost instantly. Our award was completed ahead of the expected date and we are 100% satisfied with our experience from beginning to end.
Emily M. Kaye, Operations Administrator, Superior Grocers
Being from a small town, I was extremely nervous about trying to order a very nice award off the internet. Luckily I came across the Bennett Awards website. The selection was great and the prices were very reasonable. I was very worried about service and quality however – I needed only 1 award, I needed it fast, I was representing others, and I was giving it to a man who has been honored many times for his commitment to the community. I needed special help and I found it at Bennett Awards! They replied to my email inquiry right away and I felt right at home. Not only did they help me figure out an inscription, they got my award shipped in record breaking time. The award was of impeccable quality and the recipient couldn’t stop staring at it! I will never use another award company and I would recommend Bennett Awards highly. They are a family company and I was treated as family.
Janet Stansfield Hess, President, Stansfield Vending
I told many of the award winners and the United States Olympic Committee that the beautiful awards were from Bennett Awards. Karen was fabulous to work with, and when I actually saw in person and held the award, it was even more beautiful than I had imagined. Even the Olympians, who have been on an Olympic stage with their gold medals, truly felt like movie stars receiving an Oscar. In fact, my CEO was so impressed he asked me to order one for our headquarters showcase. Your quality and amazing Eternal Spirit design truly made our event remarkable.
Susan Koehler, Intelius
Thanks so much Alice and Mollee. I was struggling to find a suitable prestigious award in New Zealand and then I came across your website, which was excellent and provided so many options it was hard to choose from. I was extremely impressed with the easy and prompt communications and service, especially from the other side of the world, and received the awards within a couple of weeks as promised. Fantastic company to deal with and I would highly recommend them.
Karen Shorter, Institute of Financial Advisors
Carmen Leal and the Bennett Awards staff provided outstanding customer service. From the initial phone call, through continuous emails, Carmen was attentive, i.e. no delays in responding to our requests and timelines. Getting her in person when I called was amazing. It's rare anymore that you get a live human being, much less one that is curtious and helpful! The award was beautiful and extremely well received. And the best piece of news was that it was done EARLY, and shipped EARLY. All packaged carefully and arrived untainted. We are exceedingly happy with the services of Bennett Awards and will certainly use them in the future for custom awards. Thank you from all the staff at WCSI!
Meg Ryan, Watson Caring Science Institute
It is always a pleasure working with the staff at Bennett Awards. Our awardees are amazed at the beauty of the award, as it really is a beautiful piece of heart. Our heartfelt thanks!
Libby Clarke, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease
Bennett Awards has been fantastic to work with over the years. They are always engaged and invested in creating a high quality product with excellent and thoughtful customer service. It's a joy to work with their team and the Goldie Award is a beautiful piece; a tribute to their skill and expertise.
James Rogers, CSP Business Media
I don't know many companies are talented or creative enough to take a plain old spring from a NASCAR Cup engine and turn it into a really stylish and impressive trophy. But, Bennett Awards did just that. They sent us a drawing of their vision before starting anything. We really didn't bring any ideas to the table, just let them run with it. The final product was outstanding! Couldn't be happier with it!
Angella Janssen, Rousch Yates
The folks at Bennett Awards have been a joy to work with. It was a daunting task to find a replacement for an award that has been presented to our organization for more than half a century. The statue created by Bennett Awards is not only more distinctive than our previous award, it is also more affordable. We will be returning to Bennett Awards for our future needs and highly recommend that others do the same.
Kevin W. Bowen, J.D., Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society
My experience working with Bennett Gallery & Awards was pleasant and easy! I only had a two week timeline including the Thanksgiving holiday to obtain the awards. I received a proof document, filled out a credit application, and billing was done and the awards shipped a week early with no issues or problems. I like their catalogue and there are many tasteful awards to choose from. Customer service is top notch as well.
Allison McFadden, Moroch
What a difference! Bennett Awards creates by far and away the most beautiful and high quality awards! We ordered the United with Globe award and all of our board members and especially the recipient love it! Thank you for making it such a painless and quick process. This became the easiest part of planning our Gala.
Jessica Franks, Program and Development Associate, Mission Doctors Association
It is always a pleasure working with the staff at Bennett Awards. Our awardees always are amazed at the beauty of the award, as it really is a beautiful piece of art. Our heartfelt thanks!
Libby Clarke, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease
We immensely enjoyed working with Bennett Awards. Their expertise and professionalism were unsurpassed. We received the artwork and final corporate award in time and in outstanding quality. We will certainly recommend and use the services of Bennett Awards in the future.
Veronika P. Judish, Executive Assistant to the Chairman, John Paul Mitchell Systems
Bennett Awards did an exceptional job with the Wounded Warrior Project's Tony Snow Award. We have worked with Bennett Awards for the past three years, and they provided effective customer service. We look forward to working with them next year!
Lindsay Garrity, Wounded Warrior Project
We have had the pleasure of dealing with Bennett Awards for two years. Their selection and variety of awards is excellent, and they do a first rate job of preparing and packaging the awards. I recommend them highly.
Robert Reilly, Fordham University
We wanted a quality award, gold, silver and bronze medallions, and a beautiful gold cup as the ultimate prize for our annual competition. The awards were customized to match the "look" of our magazine. The folks at Bennett Awards understood that. They worked with us from rough draft to finished product offering their expertise and enthusiastic support every step of the way. We were thrilled with the results!
Jane Harris, The Hub Magazine
As I stated in my earlier email, the Eternal Spirit award sculpture is absolutely breathtaking! The oohs and aahs say it all! You and your folks are (and have been) so easy to work with. We look forward to this special time each year knowing that we have an outstanding quality product that will be delivered in plenty of time for our event. This truly eases my mind and leaves me able to handle all of the other zillion details that go into coordinating our premiere scholarship fundraiser for the College of Science and Math. Many thinks for helping us put on a successful and professional event.
Laura Beck, University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Just a short note to say how pleased we are with the recognition award that was designed and created by Bennett Awards. Your design team captured the essence of what we were looking for and helped us create a unique award that honours the memory of a cherished employee here at OGRA. When the recipients of the award make comments like "wow" or "oh my" when we hand them the sculpture award, we know we hit the mark and we owe it all to your company. We also appreciate how fast your company turns around our order once we have given you the engraving information. Knowing we are working with a reputable and reliable company means one less thing to worry about in planning our conference and awards ceremony.
J.W. Tiernay, Executive Director, Ontario Goods Roads Association
Bennett Awards is an exceptional partner. Their attention to detail and execution makes the Ford Credit Partners in Quality award program a great success every year.
Monique Erving, BDA Inc. (Ford Motor Credit Company)
Bennett Awards came to the rescue for us. Our cadet drill competition needed a high-end, replacement figurine to stand atop an historic trophy. Chintzy plastic was not acceptable - we had to have something classic and dignified. The staff at Bennett Awards worked with me one-on-one to find a solution that met our needs and budget, plus they delivered in under 48 hours. When you want to recognize hard-working, teenaged cadets with an auspicious award, you can turn only to a vendor that is truly committed to quality. Bennett Awards surpassed our expectations in every way imaginable.
Curt LaFond, Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters
The entire process, from first inquiry to unwrapping the award, couldn't have been better. Bennett Awards was prompt and communicative along the way, ultimately delivering a product that exceeded our expectations at an incredible price.
Joey Leslie, Nashville Scene Sugar Rush Competition
Thank you for your excellent service in helping us with our recently received "Working Together" award. It helped make our 20th Anniversary celebrations even more memorable. We must mention that not only is your website very helpful and informative, but your speed and quality are exemplary. The "Working Together" award was chosen as we really couldn't find anyone in the UK of comparable price and quality, and the award fitted the recipients perfectly, being a business partnership in the Greeting Card Industry. Both Jakki Brown and Warren Lomax, the recipients, were absolutely thrilled with the award, especially the quality and design. This is indeed high praise as Jakki and Warren organize very large award ceremonies in the UK and have much experience in commissioning awards and trophies. We would have no hesitation in recommending Bennett Awards, and look forward to working with you in the future.
Miles Robinson, House of Cards
Working with Bennett Awards is one of the best decisions I have made as an event planner. We really needed a prestigious award to present to Tom Brokaw, Barbara Walters, and other award recipients in the future. We needed a unique award that would stand out from the many awards these special individuals have received over the years. The staff at Bennett Awards is always available to answer my questions, and everything was done easily from my computer. Thank you for making my job easier.
Elizabeth Durner, Evergreen PR
Working with the Bennett Gallery & Awards team was such a pleasure and a wonderful relief. Our events team had been in search of the perfect award for our Fortune 500 client and, until we found Bennett Awards, we had really given up hope that it was out there. Luckily enough for us, Bennett Awards was able to design, mold and produce the perfect custom designed trophy within a tight budget and quick turnaround time. We will forever use them as a local resource for all of our trophy needs moving forward.
Jenny Appel, Dominic Philips Event Marketing
Not only are the recognition awards and custom award beautiful, but it has been a pleasure working with everyone at Bennett Awards. Thank you for your unflailing good humor and flexibility with all the last minute details. We look forward to using Bennett Awards for many years to come.
Joanne Coutts, Shady Shakespeare Theatre Company
The awards were a huge success, creating the sense of occasion we were looking for in establishing our annual awards. Both recipients were blown away by their trophies and will no doubt display them prominently in their homes/offices. Your willingness to work with our limited budget and time constraints was greatly appreciated. As you know, it is a never ending struggle to make even a 'successful' non-profit group fly, and our free-for-the-public Shakespeare group is no exception. Bennett Awards' efforts to make our recognition event memorable were stupendous. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
Larry Barrott, Shady Shakespeare Theatre Company
I've been working with Bennett Awards on the UL Mark of Excellence Awards since 2007. They were very helpful with the creation and development process. The awards are very very good quality and professionally packed. They are always willing to accomodate any of our requests. I highly recommend their services!
Daniel Borczuch, UL
The folks at Bennett Awards are extremely helpful!!! It was a pleasure working with them. Our award was ordered slightly close to the presentation date; however, Bennett Awards was able to give me alternatives and advice on what should be done so that we could present the award on time and in the shape and form that we wanted it to be in, and we did!
Rachel Effendy, Baume & Mercier
I've used Bennett Awards now since 2010 and my experience has always been the same. Pleasant and courteous is how I would summarize it. During the award process, our ideas and needs continue to change, sometimes on a daily basis. No matter how many times I called or emailed, Bennett Awards understood and provided my needs seamlessly with a smile. I will definitely use Bennett Awards for our next award celebration!
Chary Perez, Diageo
Bennett Awards was extremely responsive and attended to every detail. I appreciate your recommendations and follow-through on your commitment. Bennett Awards is extremely customer service-focused!
Priscilla L. Cramer, Kaiser Permanente
Thank you so much for the quick turnaround on this custom award request. It was a hit and everyone was very pleased with the award. It was unique and certainly a surprise to the group.
Sujata Watts, Toyota
Thank you so much for your help with this. We received the award and it does look fantastic. You and your team are miracle workers! Our intent is to produce these awards annually, so I will certainly be in touch. I've also passed on your information to some other colleagues here locally who asked me to let them know when I found a good vendor for custom awards...
Dawn Vaughn, Florida Hospital
I highly recommend working with Bennett Awards on any related projects you may have. They are very knowledgeable and skilled at what they do, and the work was done quickly and courteously. It truly was a pleasure working with them, and everyone in our company was blown away by the attention to detail and customization they provided for us. We will definitely be working with Bennett Awards again for future projects!
Alexia Rouquette, Twin-Star International
An award should physically illustrate its purpose. Bennett Awards has created aesthetically beautiful works which visually embody the essence and importance of our awards. The award itself is a work of art that leaves a lasting impression with our recipients and audience.
Kevin D. O'Farrell, Trinity College of Florida
Working with Bennett Awards is very smooth and uncomplicated. They know what our needs are, and deliver on them every time. Even the last minute stuff!
Simone Green, Friendship Public Charter Schools
Where do we begin to thank you for all of the hard work and patience that you put into out inaugural Justice for All Awards Dinner. From the beginning of us working together you both were incredibly easy to work with. More importantly, the awards are stunning! They came out better than I had even imagined. I absolutely loved how you took our logo and our vision and just made it work. We look forward to using you again in the future and we thank you for all of your work with us and on the awards.
Meghan Piano, Attorney/Clinical Fellow, Northern California Innocence Project
Bennett Awards exceeded our expectations. Working with them on our custom awards was a joy. They were quick to respond to question (despite being 3 time zones away) and delivered our recognition awards with our tight time frame. The custom sculpture awards you produced were simply beautiful. We couldn't be happier with the result and strongly recommend Bennett Awards without reservation.
Paul B. Mountcastle, St. Mark's School
It was important for us to present an award that reflected the prestige and honor that is the Golden Quill. Bennett Awards was the only business I could find that would customize such an award to our detailed specifications. The process was easy and the good folks at Bennett Awards took me the process step by step as it happend. The result was exactly what we wanted: a classy product unique to our organization and one that will make people go "Wow" when it is presented.
Jeremy Waltner, International Sociey of Weekly Newspaper Editors
For years, the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors gave a framed certificate to the winner of its most prestigious competition, the Golden Quill Awards. We never thought the certificate did justice to this award, which was first presented in 1961. Three years ago, the ISWNE board of directors decided to upgrade the award presented. We worked closely with Bennett Awards to design an actual "golden quill", to match the name of the award. We were more than satisfied with the final product. It's an eye-stopper, and definitely has the wow factor we were looking for. The recipients have all been quite impressed and the award is now more meaningful.
Chad Stebbins, International Sociey of Weekly Newspaper Editors
I have to say, the awards exceeded our expectation - they are beautiful! My boss is traveling today, but he was able to view the photo and said the same thing. Thanks again - it has been a pleasure working with you on this project, and I will definitely pass on your name to other areas in our company if they have needs in this area.
Sonja Bower, Mercedes-Benz USA
Bennett Awards provided my company with a unique award that the recipient will treasure. We were happy to provide him with an award who's distinct nature represented his own distinct contribution.
Diana Reckart Miles, The Dow Chemical Company
Our experience working with Bennett Awards was great! We had an extremely urgent and very important awards ceremony that was held outside the United States one week from when I first called Bennett Awards. Our previous award supplier had not met our expectations and we were in desperate need of high quality, fully engraved award trophies that would exceed the expectations of the recipients and make the event something special! Bennett Awards was able to expedite the process and get our award trophy done in record time to get to the ceremony. The recipients were very supportive of the beautiful awards, and the ceremony was a tremendous success, thanks in large part to Bennett Awards. They were a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with them in the future!
Taylor Lane, Sonoco
Bennett Awards was very easy to work with, and delivered an incredible product! We had a custom trophy designed for our trivia event, that really took the event to a higher level. We heard plenty of oohs and ahhs when it was brought out. The trophy was delivered in perfect condition, exactly when it was expected. We will definitely use Bennett Awards for our future needs.
Melissa Tolosky, Parsons Center
It was such a pleasure to work with Bennett Awards who made our awards beautiful. From initial discussions about which award would be a good fit for this presentation, to us receiving the award in ample time for the event. We would welcome the opportunity to work with Bennett Awards for future events.
Melissa Bassham, Loma Linda University Children's Hospital
We came to Bennett Awards with a very specific idea of what we wanted in a trophy and they surpassed our expectations, creating an exceptional perpetual award that wowed everyone. It has been a pleasure to work with the team at Bennett Awards - from start to finish they are very professional and have talented artists who delivered on our concept.
Pamela J. Cirame, Wheelock Street Capital
Bennett Awards thrives on good customer service. They are timely in their orders and always go the extra mile in helping their customers with their needs. Our relationship spans over a decade, and we are so pleased with our relationship with this outstanding provider.
Karen Good, Marshall Foundation for Community Health
My experience with Bennett Awards was a very positive one. I came to your website almost by chance through Google, and drew up a short request for possible sponsorship of the awards, which we found to be incredibly high quality. After a few short phone calls and emails, the recognition awards were in the mail! I want to thank Bennett Awards for their professionalism, their high quality of work, and most importantly their care and concern for organizations like us who believe in youth and seeing them come to a realization of the world around them.
Derek Boyce, Absolute Leadership Development
The custom award has safely arrived in Boise and is loved by the recipient and the person in line to hopefully receive the next one. Thank you so much for you all your support and especially the personal contact. The focus of our organization is individualized care, apparently the same is true of yours.
Gloria McAnulty, Chidren's Hospital Boston
I commend the staff at Bennett Awards on its excellent customer service and quality of work. The entire process went smoothly. The "Eternal Spirit" recognition award I purchased truly illimunates this prestigious award in honor of the late Public Affairs Officer Jeannie Riffe, who provided excellent customer service to Veterans, VHA, and the community. I will recommend Bennett Awards to my fellow co-workers who are in the process of purchasing recognition awards. I, myself, will also continue to use Bennett Awards. Thank you for making this a pleasant experience.
Lelia Wingfield, U.S. Veterans Health Administration
As Chairman of the selection committee of a first time award, I solicited input from my committee members. The idea of a flame was a symbol that we though was appropriate to represent the award and the man we were honoring. A search was made for this symbol and it led us to the Amber Blaze award produced by Bennett Awards. We were on a short turn around time schedule, trying to accomidate schedules and the ability for presenters and the recepients family to attend. The Award produced and the presentation ceremony could not have come together better; everything was perfect.
Bruce Tolar, New Urban Guild
It was a pleasure working with all of the great people at Bennett Awards on selecting the right recognition awards in a very short timeframe for our inaugural Tile Partners for Humanity (TPFH) of the Year award. The TPFH of the Year award was wonderful, and very well received by the recipient. We will definitely work with Bennett Awards for the future TPFH of the Year awards!
Lynn Labuda, Executive Director, Tile Partners for Humanity
I just want to say THANK YOU! The JoAnne L. Carter Award is BEAUTIFUL! You've done an outstanding job to make this happen in a timely fashion. We have promptly responded to our emails and phone calls as followed through with our order. It's been a pleasure working with you on this recognition awards project.
Sharon Williamson, Maryland State Department of Eduction
I echo Sharon's comments. The Bennett Awards truly knocked our socks off!!!!! Thanks for all your help with making this happen!
Barbera Scherr, Maryland State Department of Eduction
Thank you so much for your efforts in the delivery/pick-up of our sculpture awards. I love the unique awards with the sublimated engraving. You have been absolutely amazing to deal with and we appreciate your exemplary customer service...I believe we have established a very loyal relationship with Bennett Awards, which is further solidified by your professionalism.
Adrian Marr, Edmonton Police Force
All of the people at Bennett Awards have been awesome to work with. They all pitched in and made this fantastic custom award that represents the grace and beauty of a phenomenal water sport. Artist Tom Bennett really captured the motion and athleticism required to do the one arm back, a lift that exemplifies the surf ballet known as tandem surfing. Thanks so much!
Lance Maki, MD, NKF World Tandem Surfing Event
I am very excited about my CEO with this beautiful award. The photo's don't really do it justice. I love it. The beauty of it is outstanding. The pewter with silver faces look great - I think this looks marvelous. Thank you for working with such a short turn around and efficiently getting it to me with time to spare. I would recommend your company to anyone that wants to present an excellent award to honor someone.
Denise Drayton, Director of Education, Exponents Inc.
We need a quick turnaround for these corporate awards, and I found Bennett Awards through their website. Once we had the design and details worked out, Bennett Awards made this venture possible with their expertise and great attitude. I would definitely work with Bennett Awards again on all our special recognition awards needs. Thanks again for all your help; the corporate award was the topic of conversation for days.
Cheryle Dang, Los Arboles Management
Bennett Awards and Dee were very easy to work with. I had many detailed requirements and at the end they were able to give me a very good end product for our corporate awards. We received the plaque in a timely manner as well. I will definitely use Bennett Awards in the future
Jemmie Obuchowski, Division Controller, Toshiba America
Working with Bennett Awards was a great experience. Your company was easy to work with. Creative and efficient; working on a very limited timeline you were able to not only meet but exceed our expectations. Thanks!
Julie Young, Allegheny General Hospital
I just received the award and it is gorgeous! I carried it around to show everyone in our office and the alumni office. Our Chief Operating Officer said the sculpture award exceeded her expectations. Her Associate Director wants to order a blank one to put up as a decoration in her house! The person who initiated the idea said she is so please - we wants a blank award to put in her office as well. So you can see that everyone is quite happy with the award - thanks again!!!
Liz Reinhardt, Associate Director, Public Affairs, Southwestern Law School
Thank you so much for the excellent service you have provided over the years. Each year, not only do we award our top sales executives with an exclusive trip, but we honor our top achievers with one of your unique limited edition award sculptures. The award sculptures you have recommended over the years are not only stunning, but they certainly inspire and motivate our sales executives to overachieve. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the future.
Maria S. Gonsalez, Entity Converage Analyst, Xerox Corporation
It was a pleasure dealing with the professional staff at Bennett Gallery and Awards, who had a wide range of ideas for us and worked to make everything happen on time. The awards were beautiful.
Robert Reilly, Fordham Law School
The Bennett Award was among the most beautiful I have ever seen. Thanks for Bennett Awards for another breathtaking awards design.
Valerie Reynoso Piotrowski, Director of Corporate Relations & Foundations, The Salvation Army
We were very satisfied working with Bennett Awards. The true reason we selected Bennett was that we felt we were getting true craftsmanship that went beyond manufacturing and entered a hand-made piece of art that would be representative of both the vision of the award and the value to the recipient. Bennett is an honest group of people who deliver what they say they will, when they will. There are cheaper award places and more expensive award places but Bennett Awards delivered honest value.
The awards are good quality and although artists always want to improve on things, we felt they truly were well done. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back to Bennett Awards for our next project.
Michael Brierton, Brierton Design (Underwriters Laboratories award)
I just want to write you and thank you for a beautiful job on the President's Award. I received it yesterday and it is just beautiful. I am so pleased with the way it looks and the quality of the craftmanship. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again for our next year's conference awards, and please extend my gratitude to all who accomplished such a beautiful design for us.
LaDonna Drury-Klein, California Association of Dental Assisting Teachers
I received the package this morning with the corporate award. It is beautiful! Just a stunning award. It came just in time for me to show my committee at the 10am meeting. Thank you so much! I think this is the first time they will have ever seen an award given before the day of the event. Thank you a million! It has been a pleasure working with Bennett Awards.
Melissa Bassham, Loma Linda Medical Center
After the crash of the Sheriff’s Helicopter, it was apparent that we needed to design and erect an appropriate tribute to the “Heroes in the Sky”. My thoughts immediately went to the works of Bennett Gallery that I had seen before. Working with the entire staff of Bennett Awards was absolutely wonderful. When Tom Bennett heard the ideas of the committee about what we wanted represented in the sculpture, he came up with concepts in no time at all. He completely bought into our ideas and the outcome was fantastic.
Dealing with governmental entities made the process frustrating and unpredictable. Alice Bennett was fantastic and flexible in helping overcome each obstacle that came up. The large monument was incredible, exceeding everyone’s expectations. Everyone from the family members of the victims to members of the department commented on the wonderful results and the quality of the memorial. The smaller miniatures of the sculpture are very precious to the family members. The detail and likeness was amazing.
The collaboration with Bennett Awards was a wonderful experience for me and helped bring a sense of closure to an incredibly emotional period in my life. I would definitely do business with them in the future. Their patience, understanding and reverence for the entire process truly made the process painless and lead to a very successful project and the placement of a wonderful tribute to my friends.
Greg Maples, Lieutenant, Sacramento County Sheriff Department
The "Eternal Spirit" sculpture award is fabulous! It arrived - ahead of schedule - on Wednesday morning and went onto the photography set that afternoon. Everyone in Creative Services stopped by to see it at the photo session and all commented on the striking design and the quality of the execution. So, on behalf of the GSK team, I want to convey our thanks for this beautiful piece of artwork that will commemorate an important moment in GSK's history, for your superb service, and for your warm, personal professionalism.
George Tate, GSK Creative Services
We appreciated how easy it was to work with Bennett Awards, including the outstanding customer service we received. The award arrived on time for our event and was quite attractive.
Gina Melin Vartanian, National Water Research Institute
Just wanted to let you know that we just got the award. We are very, very happy with the work that your award artist did! It is simply stunning!! Excellent work, and kudos to the artist...
Carol Fernandez and Dulce Jimenez, Diageo
We are grateful to Dr. George Sardina for his vision and generosity in conceiving of this award, and likewise appreciate his selection of Bennett Awards as a fundamental component of this project.

Thank you for helping to ensure the success of these efforts in the future through your association with the “Dr. George Sardina – Sierra Club Prize for Environmental Innovation”. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you as we work to enable future generations to explore, enjoy and protect the environment.

Christina Anderson, National Council for History Education
I was searching for unique awards, not run-of-the-mill awards you can find everywhere. I was delighted when I found the Bennett Awards site. They were wonderful to work with. Great communication, speedy delivery, and, most importantly, beautifully crafted awards.
Carolyn Smith, National Headache Foundation
On behalf of the Johnstown Area Heritage Association, thank you for your service. The recognition awards were quite beautiful and so different and distinct. They did make quite an impact. In fact, they occupy the front page of our website (www.jaha.org). They arrived ahead of schedule, which was a relief. During this inaugural event, we had so many details to check and double check, and this was one less thing to worry about - knowing that they were here and so grand.
Patricia Carnevali, Johnstown Area Heritage Association
We were very satisfied with our corporate award from Bennett Awards. The award was delivered timely and as promised. We like the professionalism and attentiveness displayed by Bennett Awards. The corporate award was great - the awards design, in our opinion, was an abstract representation of what it means to be an entrepreneur, and to achieve something amazing in that creative process. Hugh Hefner was pleasantly surprised by the unique award, because few organizations have given him a recognition award of that caliber.
Reza Bavar, Bavar Law Group
Well, we received the Bennett Awards in Cancun. They are beautiful and my boss was very excited!! The recipients were both excited to have met their goals, but they were very happy about the award itself as well. So thank you again for everything!! They are awesome and we will for sure be contacting you in the future. Thanks again Debi for such a positive experience!!
Melody K. Saenz, Colour & Design, Inc.

Marcia Scaggs, Development Officer, HOPE Worldwide
Bennett Awards is an excellent company to work with. I choose the bookend awards because they are very unique awards, and very useful. I was very satisfied. I received the awards within two days of ordering and they were delivered wrapped and in perfect shape. I would certainly use Bennett Awards again, and, if someone is looking for a special award, I will recommend Bennett Awards.
Sandra Patrone, HYPRES
I just had time to unpack the perpetual award and one of the individual awards, but they are AMAZING, absolutely GORGEOUS. I can't wait for everyone to see them on Sunday - they will go crazy over them (although I am know, I must admit, worried that I've set the bar a little too high for future trophies!).
Hannah Taylor, for Will Rogers Foundation
The Awards Gala was amazing. People love the sculpture. I want to purchase another one for our 2009 award show!
Dave Girgenti, Founder, Wish Upon a Hero
We order all kinds of awards, only this was the first time we saw your site...but now that I see how easy and quick it was to work with you, we'll order from you in the future.
Zulay Ciffoni, Canon Latin America
The customer service was outstanding – the gallery was able to place the order for the award quickly. They are very easy to get in touch with – phone and email. The award is absolutely gorgeous; this is a quality piece made with fine materials – something you will want to show off!
Joanne Celauro, Serino Coyne Inc.
Bennett Awards had to work under a very tight timeline. The sculptures and marble bases we selected from their product line are elegant and unique. Laser engraving on the marble bases was accurate, clean and precise. Proofs were sent for our approval in a timely manner. All award winners loved their awards.

The folks at Bennett Awards are responsive, efficient, and easy to work with. When they found out the award I had originally chosen was not available, they contacted me immediately and provided an alternative at a discount. I had the awards shipped to Hawaii for the first meeting, and New York for the second. They arrived on time and packed well so no damage could occur.
Melanie Cushion, Ph.D., University of Cincinnati

Alice and the Bennett Awards team did such a great job in being on the spot in responding to our requests. With the ideas being housed in our heads, it was so wonderful to see our rudimentary drawings and specs coming to life. Thank you all again, AWESOME job!
Sherry Taylor, Arthur | Marshall, Inc.
While the Aspire statue you made for us was created as a recognition gift for our Campaign Chair this year (and not as part of an awards presentation), it was definitely received with great enthusiasm by our Chair. Working with Bennett Awards was as easy and seamless as we could have hoped for, and the final piece embodied the spirit and significance we wanted to convey in showing our Chair how much her efforts were appreciated. Thank you again for all of your help.
David Gee, The Chicago Bar Foundation
Bennett Awards was very accomodating and friendly. They were able to work with our tight schedule to get us the awards on time. Their awards were beautiful pieces, and very high quality.

This is the second year I have ordered from Bennett Awards and experience has been wonderful. They are responsive and work to satisfy our needs. They provide a proof in a timely manner and always meet our "required by" deadline. I have nothing but good things to say about Bennett Awards.
Janice LaRose, J. Ranck Electric
Dealing with Bennett Awards was very easy. I found them online and inquired about an award through their website. I received a response very quickly, and they had a mockup of the award for me in just a few days. I dealt with a few different people at Bennett Awards on this project and everyone was very kind and responsive. The awards came quickly and looked beautiful when we received them. The whole process, from start to finish, was really painless for me. Thanks for all the great work on these awards for our company.
Michelle Riedel, Scot Forge Company
I am highly grateful and appreciative of Bennett Awards' service. They make products well out of our price range but worked within our budget just so we could give a great custodial worker the recognition he deserved. Their product was great and was shipped in a timely manner. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others. Thank you Bennett Awards!

I got a call on a Friday night that a decision was made to create this award and announce it during our annual sales training event, which started the following Monday. I had not worked with Bennett Awards before this day, but called Saturday and left a message. I received a call early Monday morning. The end of this story is that I had the award in hand for our awards presentation on Thursday. Bennett Awards far exceeded my expectations, and they truly went above and beyond to get the beautiful award to us in a very short time timeline.
