  • Purpose of gift/award (ie. Happy Birthday or For Outstanding Customer Service)

  • Date (of the occasion you’re celebrating, or a significant day in the past)
  • Company Logo (Here’s how to send it)
  • Clipart of a hobby, occupation, passion or just something to make the recipient smile (IE, dog, cat, medical symbol, star of life, maltese cross, coffee cup, etc.  Check out our gallery here.)
