What is Awards of Excellence?


It’s in the name. We’re a small awards shop just south of downtown Dayton, focusing on quality engraving and a fantastic customer
experience. We provide a fine selection of trophies, medallions, plaques, vinyl, and gifts for any occasion.

Our biggest priority is you. With fast turnaround times and a steady process, we promise to do whatever we can to meet your
objectives and deadlines. Whether you’re ordering an individual plaque for a friend or 200 corporate awards, we put the same
level of effort and attention into every project.

Where We Got Our Start


Our Beginning

Awards of Excellence has been under the current management since 2000. It's been a
journey of change and adaptation. We started out as Centre Engraving on Westpark Road
when the current owners purchased the company and changed the name to CompuPro.
When we were getting more calls for computer support than for awards (oops!), we
changed our name again to Awards of Excellence and moved to Lyons Road in Centerville.

More in Moraine

Our latest move has ended us up in Moraine. The investors of Awards of Excellence
bought a building in 2006 and in 2008, we moved to be a little closer to home. Our
current facility offers a greater amount of square feet along with a more polished
showroom to display our various awards, design work, great feats of engraving,
gifts, and signs.

Partners in Lebanon

Susie of Hartsocks Engraving, one of our long time customers, was selling her
engraving business that operated out of the Village Ice Cream Parlor in downtown
Lebanon. Arrangements were made and with contracts signed we acquired
Hartsocks Engraving in July of 2010.

Susie was kind enough to put us in contact with the owner at Picture This. After
setting up a small display in the showroom, we now make deliveries and pick-ups
a couple times a week to Picture This. We're excited about being able to offer our
products and engraving expertise to the Lebanon area.
