2010 “READERS CHOICE AWARDS” Project
In November, I was commissioned to custom engrave over 60 “readers choice awards” for Pinal County Lifestyles magazine. Every year they give out awards for businesses in many catagories based on their reader’s votes for best businesses. The Lifestyles magazine editor also thought it would be a great idea to feature me carving one of the awards on the cover of the magazine for the December Awards Issue. Since I’m not exactly “cover model” material, I just figured they knew what they were doing and went with the plan.
The awards were hand made, four inch square, black glass tiles made by a local artist. All the tiles were engraved by hand using designs the magazine laid out on the computer. After completion of the custom hand engraving on each of the tiles, gold was added to the engravings and the tiles were buffed out.
Each award was mounted in a wooden base after completion, including the Magazine’s Big Award of “Best Customer Service”.
I was very Honored and Happy to do this engraving work for the businesses in my community and I do hope all the award winners enjoy their well deserved 2010 awards … Congratulations !
Thanks for stoppin’ by …
