After a search to find a award for our retiring pastor, I stumbled on DIY Awards, and I will have to say, that was the best stumble that I could have made.

Our pastor loves ships so this sail-themed plaque was an easy choice. The shallow etching on the back and the globe are beautiful and the words stand out nicely with color-fill.

Simple ordering process. I was able to chose the style I wanted from the many offered, and customize the writing to fit my needs. They did not charge for an added line and logo like some companies would have. I received my proof the same day, made one small change, and received confirmation within the hour. The final product came in a very nice box with foam padding. I am very pleased with the final product and the whole process was simple and professional. I could not ask for more!
