Free Initial Design
As a business that’s been in operation for over 25+ years, we are so confident in our abilities to produce a dazzling customized recognition display for your organization that we will create a FREE design concept to honor current patrons and entice future donors. RecognitionArt’s goal is to elicit a positive emotional reaction from your supporters and to connect your display to their heart, visually linking their financial donation to the positive work you do. We are not a trophy shop, and we do not “copy/cut/paste” designs. We take the branding and core of your identity into account every step of the way, and integrate it with various forms of art.
Above & Beyond
In a world with hundreds of options for donor recognition at the click of a button, it can be overwhelming to try and find a company that meets your budget, let alone a business that goes above and beyond to “WOW” you. But here at RecognitionArt that’s at the center of our DNA. We treat you as family, not just a client or account.
We create recognition displays that not only thank and speak to donors, but are also works of art that will inspire future donations. We want you to be proud every time you walk past your donor wall and our goal is to make sure your donors feel honored and overjoyed with your project. We do this by chatting, listening and creating a design for you, free of charge!
With roots as a family owned business established in 1993, we have elected to not hire outside salespeople, which requires a 20% to 30% commission fee, enabling us to save and provide you, our customer, with so much more for your money.
RecognitionArt is committed to ensuring that your donor display beautifully represents your organization using various forms of art. Our designs are one-of-a-kind and we truly care about your success. Our displays are known for their art and text used to ensure a compelling reason to view the piece and to inspire giving throughout it’s longevity.
