About Us

**Please note - our staff is fully vaccinated so you may safely enter our showroom, although we ask that you mask, as will we. If you are not vaccinated, we're happy to do curbside pick up or shipping.

We are a group of people who believe our tag line Recognition is Respect Made Visible, and work to create each award, sign or trophy in such a way that the recipient feels recognized and respected.

Margi Swett

Margi Swett and her husband Steve (now retired) bought what was then Vermont Trophy & Engraving in 1996, after years in the corporate world.

They wanted a value added business that would add high value to products with updated equipment and a highly skilled staff. Four years of winning Vermont Best of Business Award for “Best Awards and Promotional Products” is a good sign of how it’s worked out!

Margi is also an engraver

Karen Green
Store/Sales Manager

Karen Green joined the staff in 2004 and has worked in sales nearly her whole career.

There is no one more dedicated to serving customers than Karen. She’s also great at finding exactly the right product for each customer and working within their budget to make sure they and their recipients are delighted.

Christina Hobkirk
Christina Hobkirk
Production Manager

In less than a year Christina grew into the role of Production Manager. She picked up what we do with amazing skill and speed. She has a background in automotive technology and sales. She and her new husband live on ten acres of woods and farmland and she enjoys animals, the natural world and scary stories. We were SO lucky to find her!

Kyle Shekinah-Roark
Production Associate

Kyle is our newest staffer and a great add to staff. Kyle runs our trophy section and has an art background with a degree in Animation from Hampshire College. Since trophies aren’t always busy, Kyle has also learned our other processes and the customer comments on his work show how well that art sense is working for us.

Usha (Marie) Swett
Customer Service Award Winner

Usha joined the group at only 8 weeks old in September 2013. She loves her job and takes it very seriously and has won the Gold Star Sales Person of the Year award every year.

When the door bell goes, she heads right out to greet her customers.

Lila Louise
Customer Service

The newest member of our staff is a 2-year-old Golden Retriever rescue from Tennessee. She is as sweet as can be but isn't quite sure yet about snow and cold. When she left Tennessee 12/17 it was 83 degrees, when she got here is was 19 with 5" of snow on the ground. We fully expect Usha will train her on proper showroom etiquette.
