Essential Security

Here at Herndon Recognition we never forget our service men and women.   Whether you have a family member or friend in the military, fire department or police force, we understand as much as you do how necessary it is to recognize these heroes with pieces that are created with the utmost quality and care. 

We employ experienced metal-crafters who faithfully produce the images and design elements that make up a custom badge.   From designer board to functional, durable product every piece is crafted to exact specifications and is meant to be worn for a lifetime.   We make sure that our service men and women are as proud to wear our products as we are of what they do for us each and every day.

As well as being a custom manufacture of public and private service badges, we are proud to be an authorized dealer of Blackington Badges.  In being a manufacturer we do not take our job lightly.  With such important pieces of recognition, customers can be confident that they’re working with a company that enforces security and diligence.

Employee Recognition Gone Digital

Not only does Herndon Recognition offer a variety of programs that can create a positive environment in your workplace but we’ve also made it easy for you to implement the program.  We provide a number of ideas and tools to get you going on your program and best of all we take care of the heavy lifting for you so that you have one less thing to worry about on your path to success. 

When putting together your recognition program, we provide you with the option of setting up an online cart system.  Utilization of this program allows your employees to browse and order incentive awards electronically.  Within this cart we provide you the ability to set visibility limitations so that your employees only see the gifts for their particular achievement level. 

Just as the brochures and programs are customized to meet your organization’s needs and budget, the online system works in the same way.  We create a look and feel for the website that is unique to your company and you have the option of including a customized welcome letter.  Just some of the features included are:

•    Unique Product Groups with products within your budget parameters.
•    Unique Shopping Cart URL by request.
•    Order Tracking for Management with the ability to export reports.
•    Unlimited customer service assistance.

The best way to truly understand all that this system can offer is to request a free demonstration.  With the assistance of our team of sales executives you will receive a thorough review of the system as well as additional available options.

Share the Love

In light of Valentine’s Day being just around the corner, we thought we’d take you back to grade school when during this holiday, little cards and candies were exchanged among peers.  Remember how excited you got when you saw one of those shiny red cards on your desk?  Although we might be a little older and much busier, that feeling of appreciation for another’s consideration remains. 

Taking the time to write a quick note for a job well done can give your employees the pick me up they need to get through a tiring day.  It doesn’t take much effort and certainly not much money to provide this gesture of gratitude and it can have much more of an impact than just telling a person.  Making it personal can also show the employee that it is coming from a genuine place.  What did they do to earn this special note of appreciation?  Make sure they know that they are a true asset to the team and that their efforts do not go unnoticed.  This will be sure to boost their confidence and give them motivation to keep pushing for excellence.

Thanks to the help of Cindy Ventrice, best-selling author Make Their Day! Employee Recognition That Works (which can be purchased via our website, we’ve discovered a new recognition social media site that we think is a great and easy way to share the love throughout an organization.  The site is called SPARCET and is a way for your company to send notes and share kudos on the web.  We think it’s pretty innovative! Check it out at and let us know what you think!
