A longtime client and prominent Fortune 500 U.S. manufacturing company asked for help in re-designing one of the most prestigious awards that is given to their highest-achieving salespeople. Having collaborated on several other very successful, long-running recognition programs for this client over the years, we were honored and excited about the opportunity. 

After consulting with our client to find out exactly what they were looking for and discussing various concepts and ideas, they decided on a completely custom award. Based on their very specific criteria and detailed requirements, and with “custom” being our niche, we presented creative 3D mock-ups, proofs, and actual prototype samples over many highly collaborative and very productive meetings. 

The final result was stunning: a 3-piece, custom crystal award with additional jewelry-designed features that will accurately portray the continuous accomplishments of their salespeople for many years to come. Not only does this award incorporate the finest materials, it also reflects the elegance and elite nature of the program, along with critical continuity aspects of this award. 

Considered one of their finest, this award has met with overwhelming compliments and has helped sustain the success of this highly visible, Senior Management-presented recognition program.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jeff Gardner of J Gardner Collaborations for over two decades. Jeff’s ability to translate our vision into an actual, tangible form has made him a valued business partner. When we need a recognition award, especially a custom award, we call Jeff Gardner.”

As a long time, satisfied client of G&G I like to share the great customer service I've always received from them. I have ordered award crystals, many different types of gifts, as well as embroidered items, both in large and small quantities. They always have new items and offer great ideas as well. All products are well made and always arrive as promised. We frequently ask for changes or additions to our orders and we still receive our items on time.

I highly recommend G&G for your event, large or small. You won't be disappointed!

Keep up the good work!
