All things Apple Awards

Who is Apple Awards, what do we do and how can we help you honor and recognize achievement and loyalty to your organization and the people closest to you?

Business Serving Business with Technology


Isn't it nice when people get along and help each other by sharing their talents? (Think how you would like your kids to act...) One great example of this is Apple Awards business relationship with Norvado, Northwest Wisconsin's premiere local broadband technology provider. Their services keep Apple Awards computers online receiving your orders and those VoiP phone systems taking your calls. You can visit their website at or like their facebook page at 

Recently Apple Awards was able to reciprocate in the technology sharing by helping Norvado honor one of their board of directors, retiring after 39 years of service.  Howard Sibbald received a full color plaque fashioned by Apple Awards new UV printer. The printing process used on this plaque is a thick UV ink that is cured with a UV light. The ink hardens to become virtually indestructible. It also withstands almost all cleaning solvents and up to five years of outside exposure and adheres to most substrates. The process produces incredible resolution with crisp and brilliant colors. High quality logos and photographs may be beautifully recreated on name badges, plaques, signs, tiles and more.





Congratulations to Mr. Sibbald for his years of service! Thank you Norvado for permission to use this story, ... and for getting along so well.

Lighting the Way


I've had a love of lighthouses for years.  I know it's a common obsession that many people have.  Souvenir shops anywhere near water have lighthouse books, pictures, figures, night lights, calendars, you name it...  I'm not quite that bad, having only six or seven collectibles on that theme that I treasure for one reason or another. Most of my fascination with lighthouses is the underlying message that they stand for, that of caring enough to warn.  There are many known dangers in our world and we have a desperate need for lighthouses of all kinds, not just those on the water. To me, lighthouses stand for that larger picture.20150705_133045

Lately I was able to visit the Alki Point Lighthouse.  It's in Seattle and I've tried to tour it before but was never there on the right day.  Tours are on the weekends between 10 am and 3:30 pm, whenever a group collects, and on my most recent visit I was able to connect with one.  The lighthouse is fully automated now, even to the changing of light bulbs, but the tours are conducted by a small cadre of Coast Guard Auxiliary who proudly usher people around and explain the historical aspects.

Alki Point juts out from West Seattle into Puget Sound near shipping lanes and early on the need was discovered to have a warning there.  It started with one landowner who decided to hang a lantern on a pole each night - probably got tired of cleaning up his beach after shipwrecks.  The land was eventually purchased by the government.  As the story goes the price was $9,999.99, the amount that could be spent without legislative approval at that time.  The property now has two residences that house Coast Guard officials and their families, the lighthouse and small storage buildings.  It is fenced with a security system.


At Apple Awards the lighthouse principle and spirit is recognized in a special way.  Having a collection of clip art and award products on which that clip art can be engraved, Apple Awards makes it easy to customize the perfect lighthouse recognition product for the business person, mentor or teacher who has been there to light the way.  Click the image below for details on this award.

March Madness

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_20150222_082216_410.jpgFor well over a decade Apple Awards has had the privilege of providing awards for the Great Northwest Basketball  league and the hundreds of teams involved in this great organization. Each year they host the Wisconsin State tournament for grades 5 through 8. We have been supplying the awards for this tournament every year since its inception.

This year we are proud to offer them a whole new design, compliments of our new direct color UV Printer. This printer offers an incredibly high quality, full color printing on virtually any substrate including these solid walnut WI shaped plaques and medallions.

Tag, You're You!

You are you, and there are many places where people need to know who you are and what you do.  Enter name tags.  I have a drawer full of them to prove my point.  Almost every communal activity these days either provides a name tag for it's members or gives them a paper sticky tag (hate those things...) I have ones from several different workplaces, a couple of churches, a women's study group, and some schools. These name tags come from lots of different places but it's hard to match the variety of materials, fonts and fasteners that you can find at Apple Awards.  





Just remember, no matter where you are or what you are doing, BE YOURSELF.

Let's Color

Today on my other blog ( I went on and on about color and how awesome it is and how it refreshes me.  Then I realized, EVERYBODY loves color, not just me.  And what is one of the first things kids get good at? Well, it's pushing buttons on cell phones and video games but it used to be coloring.  We love color and the special meaning colors take for themselves.  Green and gold for the Packers, red, white and blue for the flag, camo for our troops... you probably remember your high school colors too, don't you?  Mine were gold and black.  (Yes black qualifies as a color, so does white.)

Apple Awards thinks color is important too.  Evidence, the new line of bell awards with colored handles.  Take a look.  


These lovely colors are yours for the asking on handles of all sizes of bell awards.  Whether it's a school color or just a personal preference, the Apple team will be happy to wrap it up for you. And you will be tickled pink... or blue, or green, or red, or gold, or, or, or...
