It’s back to school time, and like any good teacher, I’m here to help you with your ABCs.
I know what you’re thinking: “My ABCs? What does the alphabet have to do with awards and recognition?”
I’m glad you asked! Technically, nothing. But I’m here, making it easy for you to remember some of our awards, gifts, and occasions where you can use them. If you like any of these ideas, contact our solutions specialists! They’re ready to help create the perfect award.
Now get out your pencils and take some notes – here’s Crystal D from A to Z!
A is for Appreciation Awards
The best way to keep your customers coming back is by recognizing them…just because. Have you ever received something special from a company you’ve done business with? I bet you’re more likely to go back because they’ve thanked you in a memorable way. You can make that same type of memory! Send a hand-written note along with a simple crystal gift like the Denton Square, and you’ll have a customer for life! Need more ideas? Check out our ideas page!

X is for…
Well, we don’t have anything for X. We could have gone with eXcellence awards down here, but that’s a little cheesy. And we don’t have any awards that start with an X either. If you were naming an award that had to start with an X, what would you name it? What occasions can you use an award for that start with an X?
Y is for Years of Service Awards
Your employees have been with the company for many years. Thank them for their dedication to the company with a years of service award. Increments can be the traditional 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years. Or they can be different increments that are more relevant to your company like 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 years.
Z is for the Zephyr Star
