Superior service from inception to completion

Awards are not just simple one-size-fits-all statues anymore. There are so many varieties to choose from, with even more choices in each subcategory. You can have them engraved, silk-screened, lasered, or go full-color with sublimation. But what process works on what, and how much space do you get? Do you need to provide artwork, logos, pictures? The process can be overwhelming. There are so many variables and so many ways to customize your selection, and trying to do it without help is frustrating.

This is where Award Specialties comes in. One call or visit to the store and their trained staff will personally guide you through the selection process quickly and easily, taking the stress off you.

Serving satisfied customers since 1981

Award Specialties was founded by George Doolittle in April, 1981. When college student Lisa McNeilly applied at the store for a full-time position in August of '81, she had no idea she had found her calling. Lisa spent the next eighteen years getting hands-on training under George's tutelage and reading industry journals to increase her knowledge. Lisa enjoyed her work so much she bought the business in January, 1999.

Still at its original location at the corner of SE Oak and 4th in Hillsboro, Award Specialties honors its founder by continuing to offer full customer service by a highly- trained staff. Lisa adds new technologies and trends to her inventory, but one thing remains the same: The #1 Goal of Award Specialties is Complete Customer Satisfaction.
