Citations, resolutions, certificates of recognition, mission statements, etc., guaranteed to make the recipient feel very special and reflect your organization's good taste. Here's a testimonial from the marketing director of a large Raleigh-based law firm:

Dear Don,

I just received your summer newsletter, and wanted to comment on your article "In recognition of..." As you may recall, in 2005, our law firm commissioned from you a "special recognition award" for nine of our attorneys who have been practicing law for more than 40 years. These were awarded to the surprised recipients at our attorney retreat in front of their families and law partners at a wonderful ceremony in Charlotte. In addition to the beautiful and meaningful framed manuscripts you created, we gave the attorneys fine brass clocks suitable for a mantle, with an inscription on them.

I wanted you to know that I've had several of the attorneys comment over the past few years that their families talk about the beautiful manuscript you created, and how it has become an "instant heirloom." One attorney has designated who is to receive it in his will, and another said it was one of the best gifts he had ever been given. I haven't heard a word about the clock, and will suggest that when we do this again in 2010, we just forget about the clocks altogether. The recognition certificate you created is by far more important, and everyone recognizes it as such. Thank you so much for creating these important works. I hope you'll do it for us again in 2010!

Best wishes,
Laura Hudson
