They say most awards won't even buy a cup of coffee. This is true. But just the same it is always cool when our company is recognized by our peers. The awards do raise our credibility with our potential customers. The awards also look nice on our walls. This year seems to be overflowing with honors.
Our sextant piece (the first project of last year) was recently awarded Best of Show and Winner - Unique Signs by Signs Canada - a Canadian national competition. The Stand-alone Signs Category in that same contest garnered a first place win with our True North Sub Stop Sign. it was also featured on the cover of Signs Canada Magazine.
In the international arena we have fared even better of late. I recently received word that we won in the Portfolio Awards Competition put on by Sign and Digital Graphics. Best of Show - True North Sub Shop.
And in the 2011 world wide competition by Signs of the Times our projects garnered three awards... First Place Commercial Sign Systems - MultiCam Western Canada, Second Place Commercial Monument Signs - Dhillon Farms, and Third Place - Commercial Building Signs - Shmyer's Harbor.
