Retirement is, like graduation or marriage, one of life’s major milestones – a transition to a whole new stage of life. Retirement parties offer an opportunity for colleagues to reflect on the retiree’s years of service and many accomplishments, and inevitably, to present him or her with a parting gift that‘s meant to show their affection and respect.
When choosing a personalized retirement gift for an employee or board member, you want to keep a formal yet thoughtful feeling. Retirement is a rite of passage in life, and it deserves recognition. The gold watch is the cliché gift of choice – but why not make your next retirement gift something more personal, like a sterling silver retirement tray with engraved facsimile signatures from the whole workplace team?
With hand engraving done by master artist Tony Gilson, a commemorative sterling silver retirement tray can be thoroughly personalized to fit a particular individual and organization. Every time the retiree looks at it, they’ll be reminded of every person whose name appears inscribed on its surface – in the signer’s own handwriting.
No matter how personal an engraved message on a corporate award or gift might be, or how elegant laser engraving looks, there’s nothing as meaningful as things that are handwritten. A pewter or silver display tray permanently hand-etched with a perfect mimic of each coworker’s signature makes a formal, luxury display piece just as deeply personal as that get-well-soon card you sent them when they were sick last year.
Luxury Corporate Gifts that are Quality, Unique and Personal
We hold ourselves to an extremely high standard at Gilson’s Executive Awards; it’s how we’ve come to raise the bar in the corporate gifts and awards space over the last 40 years. Every premium corporate gift we produce is of extremely high quality. We work with only the finest of materials, including real pewter and silver for our executive gift trays. Every piece lovingly-crafted and custom-engraved. We partner with some of the finest manufacturers in the business, including Waterford, AT Cross, Seiko and Bulova.
We stand by our customers in every custom corporate award or gift order we do. We work closely with you during the design and proof process, and our return/refund process should you be dissatisfied with your order or it arrives damaged, is simple and straightforward. We’ve built a reputation in the professional gifts and awards industry for unparalleled trophy and plaque awards and luxury corporate gifts. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Capturing a Moment in History with Hand-Engraved Silver Trays and Trophies
At Executive Awards, we specialize in high-quality corporate boardroom products, awards and gifts, unique in nature and able to be customized to your special occasion. We set the standard in the corporate awards and luxury gifts market. Our employee awards are built to last – to become a piece of history that will be remembered for all time.
Just because personalized silver display trays for retirements are timeless doesn’t mean they can’t also be spontaneous. Indeed, that’s often what makes art great. That’s why we offer design and proof options that can be crafted and shipped in as little as one day.
We pride ourselves with a rapid turnaround policy. Simple engraving on a name plate, desk card holder, or personalized pen can be ready to ship in 24 hours of your order. But if you’ve planned ahead, especially for events with a lot of notice, like a retiring board member – call ahead. Ideally, we like to allow for enough time for at least one stage of proofing to create a truly perfect work, but we can accommodate any needs you have, if necessary.
