Engraving Services

The business first started as Bux-Mont Awards & Engraving Services and not a lot has changed in the 16+ years we have been in operation.  We added some recognition services here, apparel and promotional products there, but everything is under the recognition umbrella.  

We are a recognition company first and foremost.  We are dedicated to the principles of properly recognizing achievements and what goals do
ing so accomplishes.  We firmly believe that pe
ople thrive in an environment that includes recognition of achievement.  We also believe in the power of corporate apparel as aiding in brand recongition.  We recognize those who have come before us and deserve memorialization.  This is what makes up the Awards and engraving services in our name.  We do all this for you.  We can help many people in many ways, a lot like the engravers who came before us were to their villages and towns.   

In these times it is of greater importance to utilize recognition of some form on a daily basis.  Simple thankyous are sufficient and effective.  Formal recognition works well also.  We can always help, and it's always free to talk.

This mornings meeting


I had the opportunity this morning to attend my first event as an Upper Perk Chamber of Commerce member and it was exciting! The event was a well attending breakfast at the Upper Perkiomen School District Building. A very nice building with a great conference area. After networking we enjoyed the sounds of the Upper Perk Uptones then it was on to awesome omelets, prepared by the Culinary Students at the Western Center for Technical Studies.

After breakfast was finished we heard from the presenting sponsors Sandi Syglowski of The Family Resource Network. She talked about some of the programs they put on as well as the 40 developmental assets they stress.

There was a good time had by all, and it was nice to be able to meet and converse with new people. I am looking forward to the attending the train ride, as well as picking up a Christmas Tree at Ringing Dale Christmas Tree Farm this year. The chamber reminds us to always shop & support local businesses, especially in these trying times.

Dan is a member of the team at Bux-Mont Awards, and a new member of the Upper Perkiomen Chamber of Commerce.





Is everyone ready for the Holidays? They are rapidly approaching!

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

Because of the amount of hoopla surrounding the pink month of october, not that many people know that November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. We recongize achievements and as such we would like to recognize those who help battle this silent killer. Bux-Mont Awards is willing to give our customers a free gift and donate 2% of profits from orders taken when you mention that you want to support Pancreatic Cancer Awareness.

Pancreatic Cancer kills about 35000 individuals each year and should not be taken lightly. Most people diagnosed with this cancer have their lives taken by it.

So when you are giving Thanks and filling up on the turkey, or out shopping on Black Friday; when you are recognizing alzheimers awareness month or doing something to fight national youth homeless, please take time to think about those in your life that are close to you and help us raise awareness for pancreatic cancer. Thank you.

November means...

I know, I know, I don't want to think about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday let alone Christmas. With these tumultuous times we are dealing with and the massive amount of change being undertaken, let's show this world that we can let the Phillies pick us up.

Please visit our Sellersville store to see the World Champion Phillies Ornaments on display and for sale. These commemorative ornaments include pictures taken at the Game 5 World Series Clincher against the Ray and those Phillies.

There is no better tree ornament this holiday season.
