About Us

U.S. Patent Certificate

A Division of Professional Awards of America LLC

Since 1983, U.S. Patent Certificate has been a provider of high quality patent, copyright, trademark plaques, and specialty recognition awards. Founded by an inventor and patent holder, our company was one of the first to recognize the importance of the work and effort that goes into receiving a patent.

A family-owned business for over 40 years, the secret of our success in the recognition industry lies in the quality of our products and our commitment to customer service and satisfaction. We offer our customers the ability to customize their plaques by offering an expansive product line with multiple plaque choices, numerous design options, and a large selection of materials.

We are committed to offering our customers quality plaques at affordable prices, but we have also continued to be an industry leader in employing greener production methods that have less impact on the environment. Our products are constructed using lead free metals and water-based inks, and we offer eco-friendly options such as sustainable hardwoods and other easy to recycle materials. Our recycling efforts include the recycling of all our waste metals, cardboard, and paper materials and reusing a significant amount of packing material.

Let us help you manage your company's recognition program. Contact one of our courteous representatives who will help you with your plaque and recognition program needs. Remember, from order to delivery, we ensure customer satisfaction!
