Testimonials

“I wanted to take a moment to write and thank you for your help with our recent corporate gift. I called you at what seemed to me like the very last minute and you acted as though we had all the time in the world. You were so patient with my last minute requests and questions. Everyone loved their paperweight and thought they looked great! Working with you certainly put my mind at ease and I will be calling in the future for other corporate gift needs.”

“I have worked with Lauren on custom retirement gifts in the past. As always, Lauren is very timely, personable and helpful. Most recently, I came in with an idea “that has been done before” Lauren helped develop the idea into a show piece. The way I see it, I was looking for a custom award and I walked out with a custom trophy; a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece.”

“In 2013, Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company sought out a new vendor to update its Distinguished Young Pharmacists award with a new design. Gilson’s Engraving presented us unique options and was selected as our service provider. The awards are beautifully engraved and arrive timely in perfect condition for the presentations. Gilson’s excel in customer service by creating quality products for each customer. They are our #1 vendor for plaques and annual employee awards. We can count on them for new ideas, prompt service, and service with a smile (even though we only hear their voice on the phone or through email). Three Huzzahs to Gilson’s Engraving and Executive Awards.”

“I just wanted to let you know about my experience with Gilson’s. Initially, I was looking for a polished pewter base to match a trophy that we purchased for an award. The diameter of the base didn’t seem to match the size of any bases available. Stacy was very diligent in trying to find a base that matched the dimensions of my trophy. She stayed in touch and kept me abreast of any/all updates.

Lauren suggested that I submit the trophy so that you could size and provide the appropriate base. I felt a little discouraged when I informed her that we no longer had the trophy, but had already given it to the first winner. She, however, came up with some wonderful suggestions of other options which were more than pleasing to my boss. We ended up going with a base made of rosewood and we’re going to put pewter plaques (which was also a suggestion of Lauren’s) around the four sides of the base.

Their input was very helpful and most appreciated. I’ve expressed to them my appreciation, but thought I’d take it one step further and let someone else that my not be aware, how valuable they are to your business. I will definitely use/recommend you guys for business in the future!”
