Business Signs

At Behrends, we understand the importance of a first impression. Custom business signs at the entrance of a subdivision, office building, golf course, hotel or business park not only welcome clients and patrons, they also convey professionalism, longevity and a commitment to quality. We believe in these values, and incorporate them into the practice of our craft; you can see this in every project we take on. Contact one of our representatives for more information.

Dedication to Detail

Custom award plaques have been used to mark a number of milestones and achievements throughout history in a wide range of settings. Corporate award plaques are ideal for displaying an individual or group’s achievements and dedication in an instantly recognizable manner. Organizations of all kinds use large plaques to fill entire walls to commemorate charitable donors and other noteworthy individuals. Sports teams and athletic organizations use many unique award plaques to celebrate the achievements of championship teams and outstanding individuals every year. With so many award plaques on display in so many places, some may begin to wonder what makes these awards so special. At Behrends Group, we believe the award plaque should reflect the level of achievement through the highly detailed workmanship of the finished product. Each award is unique and special to those who give and receive it, which is why we strive to create award plaques that reflect this tone to everyone who sees it.

All of the plaques & awards we create to commemorate everything from personal achievements to dedications and gratitude are made with the high level of detail that Behrends is known for. Our plaques are used in a number of different areas including public monuments, private properties, community centres and more, but each one is designed and manufactured with the same dedication to detail in mind. That dedication is part of what makes Berhends known as an industry leading plaque awards company.


Importance of Lasting Recognition

An award plaque goes a lot further than honouring those to whom it is presented. In many cases, including a physical token of appreciation brings a higher level of distinction and prestige to any award. By including a unique award plaque, people can more easily connect to the spirit in which an award is presented. Plaques marking historical events and dedications work in a similar way, helping people and communities remember the achievements of noteworthy groups and individuals by marking significant landmarks or sites, and detailing the stories behind the events or achievements. With help from the plaque and award design experts at Behrends, you can obtain the kind of profound recognition that is meant to last and encourage others.

There are few better ways to commemorate and mark special achievements and occasions than with custom award plaques from Behrends. No matter what unique features you want to include in your commemorative piece, we can accomodate. Everything from award plaques with photos, unique logos and designs, and solid, durable bronze cast construction is available when you choose to work with Behrends on your next custom award plaques. We offer top quality service, workmanship, and rapid turnaround on all of our orders, so don’t hesitate to get in touch and share your ideas with us today.

Architectural Signs

Since 1952, Behrends has offered a diverse selection of architectural signs for clients from every industry and background. Architectural signs are physical objects (often cast or cut metal letters or logos) that let people know where they can find you; a major component is often exterior storefront signage. As part of a wayfinding system, the most effective architectural signs not only direct your guests into your space, but also play a major role in defining your brand’s identity.
