We know thousands of schools across the nation depend on Award Emblem for their student and teacher recognition awards, and we're grateful that you have entrusted us with this responsibility for 74 years. The current COVID-19 pandemic has created a national emergency, but things are changing rapidly and we're helping push our country back to a state of normalcy.
As of May 1, 2020, Illinois is allowing non-essential retail businesses to reopen to take orders over the phone and on their websites. While our showroom will continue to be closed, our office and plant will be open with reduced staff to process your orders as quickly as we can. You can call us at 800-852-8805 to place your order - if we're busy and unable to answer your call, please leave a voicemail message and we'll get back to you promptly. Alternatively, we're accepting orders through our website at https://www.awardemblem.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not expect lead times to be greatly lengthened, and every effort will be made to ship your order out quickly to meet your requirement date. This situation, by necessity, is fluid, so please check back here for regular updates.
Our hearts go out to the victims of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we know this has been a life changing experience for you and your students. It has been for us, too. Award Emblem is a third generation family owned business thatís served schools across the nation for 74 years. We make all of our pins and medals here in America, and we employ American workers - many of whom have been with our company for more than 30 years. The COVID-19 pandemic has struck at our busiest time of year, and has the potential to be devastating to our business. We ask humbly that you continue to support us with your business, and that you donít forget to recognize your students - theyíve been through a lot this year.
God bless you and our great nation during this very difficult time - stay safe, and together we're beating COVID-19.
The Klein Family, and the staff at Award Emblem
