Here is a short list of some of the customers and industries we are honored to serve:

Individual Customers

Serving our community for more than 60 years, we have multi-generations of customers that we call our friends. Our goal is to build relationships with each person we have the pleasure to help and that has led to a loyal and dedicated group of clients that have recommended us to their families, friends, co-workers, and organizations. We cherish these relationships and greatly appreciate the “word of mouth” referrals that are the backbone of our customer base.

Health and Wellness

We have a strong presence of health-related customers. Individual medical and dental offices, hospitals, healthcare facilities including senior care, post acute health care, rehabilitation and occupational health care centers, government health organizations and health and wellness institutes are among our biggest clients. Hospitals such as Kaiser Permanente, Sharp, Scripps, and UCSD Medical Center have been ordering recognition awards and gifts from Dell Awards for many years and recommending us to their colleagues. Name badges are a favorite item among local and national healthcare facilities such as Glenner Alzheimer Center, Jacob Health Care Center, and San Diego Sports Medicine & Family Health Center. We service government agencies such as the County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency, Behavioral Health Services, and the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud & Elder Abuse. Besides badges, signage, and labels, we make multiple recognition awards for many health and wellness institutions such as Optimum Health Institute and the San Diego Health Care Institute.
