It is stunning and it was a personal privilege to present it to Carol Aastad. You would have been pleased at the "oohs & ahhs" from the audience.

You know how to make memories last a lifetime. Your understanding of recognition and reinforcement make this a better world!"

"Too often we only send notes and make phone calls when something goes wrong or our requests are not being met. However, in this case, I wanted to send you a quick note regarding Sandra and tell you how awesome she has been while working with me on our orders for the Pampered Chef. Over the course of the last month, as we have worked these orders, there have been many, many requests with questions & changes and to each one Sandra has been so responsive - there was never a moment when I didn't feel like my order was taking top priority even though I'm sure there are many other orders going on right now. Sandra met each challenge with a quick response and a terrific attitude. She paid thorough attention to detail and kept me informed of progress all along the way - this made my job of dealing with my customer so much easier. I truly appreciate Sandra's fantastic efforts and look forward to working with her and R.S. Owens in the future."

"Hey Mary! You do have a valuable Team! I DO TRY to let a vendor know when things go right as I know in this Industry we don't hear it often enough -- when we put forth sooo much effort in making things happen.

"I wish to take a moment to highlight the amazing talent you have at R.S. Owens. Susan's superb photography of the Gallup Great Workplace Award is crucial to the success our ad will have! Her eye for detail, talent with lighting, and focus with touch-up made all the difference in attaining a stellar shot for our us - we could not have attained this without her. Joseph - where do I begin? I have to say that the collaboration we've had is the best I've every experienced with another creative. Your insight and knowledge of production techniques amaze me, and what truly stands out in my mind has been your ability to execute our ideas with true excellence. Without this, there would not be a piece in existence - I have such an appreciation for your talent of execution and have been bragging about it all over Gallup - it is off the charts!!! Thank you for all of your extra time and effort in the creation of this award. I am honored to know you.

- Kim Goldberg, The Gallup Organization

"What is most appreciated," said a spokesperson from the real estate firm, "is how On Time Promotions and R.S. Owens solicited our ideas and listened carefully to what our goals were in creating this award [7B+ Award]. This was a particularly challenging task in that we wanted to incorporate elements of an award that had been designed years before, but with a new twist."

- Spokesperson from Midwest Real Estate Firm

"We really wanted this award to be truly special to the recipient. And we wanted the company that produces the Academy Award - they were our first and only choice. Recipients consider the Mother Teresa Award on of the highest honors they could achieve."

He energizes our staff with his great knowledge and words of wisdom. Once the sales staff has heard Otis, they are ready to take on the world!"

- Jane O. Carman, President of First Place, Inc. (Sunyvale, CA)

"The awards aren’t some secondhand flea market trinkets either. The R.S. Owens Company, which makes the Oscars, Emmys and MTV Awards, designed the Senet statuettes. Certainly, one of these wouldn’t look bad in a case next to some Master Chief figurines."

- Kris Graft, writer, Next Generation Business

"This year, the Sarah Siddons Society decided to bring more prestige back to the awards and have them made by Chicago firm, R.S. Owens & Co.

"I would like to compliment Jim on his excellent customer service. He checks on my orders from start to finish and knows what is going on all the time. For me as the customer, it is very reassuring to know that he cares what is happening to my often-complicated orders. I would also like to compliment Ray in the art department, who does wonders with some of the intricate artwork I send his way. Joseph and Barbara in the custom department are a very good creative team. The custom Supercross rider they created is a work of art! I also want to mention John for his help in getting my orders done on time. Your shipping department is run very efficiently and they pack my delicate trophies with such great care. I don’t know the names of the people who actually put all these orders together back in the factory. I know some of the faces though. They do very nice work.

- Lydia Hinton, Austin-Bradlee Company (Bensenville, IL)

"I just talked with my customer and they said the awards are awesome!!! I could tell they were extremely happy. Thank you again! You have the best customer service of any company we have ever worked with."
