Expert Engraving Services

Firefighter Awards

To recognize the men and women risking their lives & serving our communities throughout the U.S. as volunteer or career firefighters, we offer a variety of firefighter awards, trophies and plaques.  If you want to honor and acknowledge bravery and dedication you are in the right place. From our regulation size solid brass fire helmet, to bronze axes, solid pewter fire trumpets, to crystal fire awards and beyond, we have put together an assortment of the highest quality, most unique awards available JUST FOR FIREFIGHTERS.  We proudly serve departments year after year in all 50 states.

Custom Awards

 While almost everything we do is “custom” to some extent, the items shown in this area are designed from the ground up specifically for each client.  Often times these projects take the resources of many areas of expertise as well as the teamwork of our network of designers and fabricators.  Our goal is to take the ideas of our client and turn them into a tangible reality that is truly one of a kind.  In this effort we have started with as little as a sketch on a cocktail napkin and created the highest award given at a Fortune 100 client.  Simply put, when it comes to a truly custom award, if it can be done, we can do it.  The link below will open a slide-show of custom awards we have done since we began in 1972.

Civil Servant Badges

All of our badges are manufactured by SMITH & WARREN, the top badge manufacturer in the US.  The soldering, enameling and polishing staff includes top professionals from the famed NYC jewelry industry. Every badge is hand crafted by these skilled artisans, carefully inspected and held to the highest quality standards in the industry.  We understand that the people wearing a badge are more than likely not just pushing a pencil and their badges need to not only look worthy of respect but be as resilient as the rest of their uniform.  Since Smith & Warren is the only badge manufacturer that offers a FULL LIFETIME WARRANTY on all metal finishes they met our standards so we could meet yours.  

Architectural Bronze Plaques

  When it comes to cast and architectural plaques, Hero's Salute once again brings you the best in the industry, utilizing the world-class foundry and capabilities of GEMINI.  Whether your plaques are Cast, Precision Tooled, Etched, or those requiring ADA specifications, we can create the marker, seal or plaque you need quickly and with remarkable attention to detail all with a lifetime manufacturer's warranty from Gemini.   Allow us to show you why our plaques are used to dedicate rooms and trees, remember amazing people as well as mark buildings, landmarks and points of interest nation-wide.  AND DON'T FORGET, our expert staff is here to help with decades of experience to walk you through the process.
