My Personal Favorite New Equestrian Awards

Each catalog we strive to find new solutions for your awards. We just published our Equestrian catalog (in January) with over 35 new products.

I wanted to tell you today about my personal favorite new equestrian awards in the new catalog.

My first favorite is our new vintage equestrian plaque. We actually have three versions. Two, the “Treasure” and the “Character” are sold as is with no customization but offer inspirational messages with beautiful imagery. The third version is the custom version of the vintage plaque. This version allows you to put any type of artwork, photograph, logo, design, text, event information or names on the plaque while still keeping the vintage look.

My second favorite product is the new Windsor Rosette. It offers something a little different from what is currently in our extensive line of equestrian rosettes. The Windsor Rosette features a ¾ rosette top made of hand sewn petals and three 12” streamers. Just like our other rosettes, you can still choose a button, gold rim, or satin center rosette center with your logo or a stock design, any ribbon color or combination of ribbon colors including exclusive multicolor side streamers and 10 lines of custom print. The Windsor Rosette can also be customized with up to 24” streamers to accommodate if you are looking for a larger rosette.

My third favorite product (which by the way I am definitely suggesting to be given as employee appreciation gifts at Hodges) is the Rosewood Pen & Pencil Set. This set can be engraved with you logo or event information on the case. I know it is the age of tablets and smart phones but who doesn’t need a good pen & pencil set.

So I’ve listed my personal favorites here but we have so many more new great products in this catalog. Go on-line, find your and let us know. We would love to get your feedback. Happy browsing!

Introducing the Championship Line- Part II

In our previous post, I mentioned there were simply too many new products in our Championship Line to introduce all at once.  This post will show you some of our new handcrafted pewter pieces.

Our Boardman Silversmiths pewter items include the Louisville Rose Garland Serving Tray, which is available in three sizes, and the Newport Pedestal Bowl, which has five size options from a 5″ diameter to a 12″ diameter.

We also expanded our offering of Pewtarex plates.  In addition to the horse rim plates, we now have the Gadroon with a more elaborate rim, and the Iris Tray with carefully finished flowers (and a little frog!) decorating the left side.

Lastly, did you know you can order your own custom logo on the rim of a Pewtarex plate or bowl?  With just a 36 piece minimum, you’ll be awarding a prize you can be sure your competitors have never received.  Call Customer Service to request a quote.

Introducing the Championship Line- Part I

If you have received our 2011 Equestrian Catalog, you may have noticed a section towards the back with pages of new products.  With customers asking for items that were suitable for End of the Year and  Series High Point awards, we have significantly added to our offerings of silver and pewter, as well as brought in new pieces of crystal, bronze resin trophies, and high-end mango wood frames and plaques.

I wanted to preview a few pieces from the Championship Line here on the blog.  Of course if you’d like to review the items in print, please click here to request a catalog.

For those of you looking for a timeless silver plate, our new OG Edge Plain Tray comes in 17″ and 20″ sizes, large enough to engrave the names of many years’ winners.

For a silver perpetual trophy, consider our new Wine Cooler. It can be placed on our cherry tone base with 32 silver brushed plates.

Our Crystal Trophy Vase also comes in three sizes, and would make an impressive trophy for any event.

Finally, our Horse Head bronze resin trophy also appeals to multiple disciplines.
