What is the most important part of the inscription on an Award?

We recommend the following information listed in order of importance.

  1. Recipient name
  2. Award Name or Reason for the Award
  3. Year of gift
  4. The giver of the Award.
  5. Flowery copy for flow and details of award worthiness.

This formula can be expressed in various ways. Usually it depends on the amount of space allocated on a particular award or how much needs to be said. In many cases only the top three or four points are necessary because the recipient is most interested in seeing the basics.

The only exception tends to be when flowery copy is necessary to explain the qualifications for receiving the award. This is often done when giving awards for charitable work, or more subjective recognition.

Various examples below of how an inscription may include different information based on the requirements of the award.
