It's Earth Day

So get outside and plant some flowers or try to catch the wind, do something, but remember breathing emits CO2, which feeds the plants which give us oxygen, so go outside and breath!

Happy Earth Day!

Bux-Mont Awards' going green

So we also look to build a sustainable future in more ways than just using velcro zip ties. We also recycle our materials and look to offer products that offer minimal adverse impact on our environment.

Bamboo is a great way to do that, and there is a place in Bux-Mont Awards product list for bamboo recognition products. We offer bamboo plaques, custom engraved bamboo pens, and even bamboo coasters.

All these bamboo items can be customized with our engraving services, making for some unique green recognition products.

The more you ask for it, the more it will be around. Bux-Mont Awards need to here from you to know what you want. Leave it in the comments!

Baseball Season

It's upon us. We are working on putting out the new baseball stuff as well as the Spring sports. Come check us out!

Phillies & Hot Starts

It's hard to keep your enthusiasm down these days in the Philadelphia area as the Phillies continue to beat the teams they are supposed to be beating (for a change ehh)

So we are excited, and it's hard not to be. So we watch each inning knowing that we can hit from any spot, and isn't it encouraging to see Victorino improve his batting average almost 100 points in one game.

Let's hope they can keep it up and put together a great season for us all to remember. I think we are all looking forward to it.

If you are trying to see the Phillies in person this year, that might be tough, but you can still take advantage of our free Phillies ticket giveaway we are having in honor of our business being open for 20 years!

Stop into Bux-Mont Awards in Sellersville to take advantage of the great deals in personalized gifts (think things remembered in the mall but better ;) and recognition products and enter you name into our drawing for a chance to win Phillies tickets and other great prizes!

Bux-Mont Awards, since moving into it's new location in September, has a newly renovated showroom which we display an expanded gift line, glass etching, and recognition products for all!

What motivates your sales people

With the start of the second quarter comes the start of our peak season, and we are looking forward to testing out our new production capacity. If anyone out there needs help with implementing a new awards and recognition program, leave a comment. We offer our free advice here on the blog. We offer free advice in person too, we just want to see you succeed.

I can't tell you how many times I have heard a sales person say, "They implemented a sales recognition program and we get a pin for every x amount of dollars in sales we do, and then after so many pins you get a gift card. The pins just go in my desk drawer. "

Heads up HR person, you are doing it WRONG!

Sales people, lets here what motivates you in the comments, and the best answers will make up a future post!

Bux-Mont Awards going green

In an effort to keep you posted on how we try to help the environment, we at Bux-Mont Awards want to keep you updated on how we try to help leave our world a better place for the children.

In addition to reusing, we also look to reduce and recycle. We purchase our materials in full sheets and cut them down as we need. We don't just throw our scraps away. We reuse the pieces when we can and recycle what we can't use.

We know it's not much but we try to reduce our carbon footprint and realize that while just us doing it may not make much difference, but if everyone in our industry did it, we know that this is something that can last.

We want to be the change we want to see in this world. And Bux-Mont Awards wants you to help.

Going green

With green having been all but forgotten in this economic downturn, lets hope that it isn't all forgotten on the upswing. We can continue to drive this economy by espousing the green virtues and help leave this planet a better place for our children (sound familiar all you aging boomers?)

In our effort to go green we will highlight here on our blog, some of the things we are doing to leave this planet a better place for our kids.

One of these things is our love of Velcro. We are a big fan of Velcro for many reasons. Not only do they save us from the arduous tasks of shoe tying, but the folks over at Velcro have been busy coming up with new applications for their hook and loop.

One of these ingenious ideas is as a reusable zip tie. Velcro zip ties are great. We never had enough zip ties around when you need them, and I always hated having to waste one every time someone asked for a new monitor or to move their keyboard. The velcro zip ties were the perfect solution.

We are happy to do away with throw away zip ties and switch to the velcro brand. When we were going through our big move, we needed a solution for our cable organization that was as green as could be and worked for our organizational needs. Velcro answered the call for our needs in grand fashion!

Check them out if you haven't before and post your energy saving and recycling ideas in the comments. Check back here often to see how Bux-Mont Awards is saving the planet one trophy at a time.
