New year, new products 2011!

January 14, 2011

Welcome to 2011! We have an exciting year ahead of us here at Rivanna, and it all starts with some great new products we’ve added to our eco-friendly selection of awards, plaques, and gifts. Some standouts you’ll find among the new additions:

  • New cherry awards. We’ve introduced a collection of competitively priced awards from FSC-certified domestic cherry. These six awards celebrate state forests that have been awarded FSC certification. Each award has a distinctive shape and features beautifully carved wood, offset by a satin gold engraving plate. We hope this collection will provide cost-effective options when you are looking for beautiful hardwood awards that fit in your budget.
  • PaperStone™ additions. We have expanded our FSC-Certified PaperStone collection to include nine new designs at several price points, made from black, green, and blue PaperStone. Crafted from recycled paper but with a weight and texture closer to actual stone, these awards feature one-of-a-kind shapes, elegantly carved lines, and satin silver engraving plates.
  • Long-term or team recognition. Back in March, we provided a sneak peek into our new collection of perpetual plaques – now they’re here! 12 brand new perpetual plaques, in a variety of materials and with a range of year plates available to suit any long-term recognition need.
  • Plaques made from Richlite®. Our Renewal Plaques have gotten a makeover this year and are now made from Richlite®FSC™ Black Diamond. Richlite Black Diamond is a green building material made from paper from FSC-certified sources. A dense, elegant material with a matte finish, Richlite adds sophistication and a contemporary feel to our Renewal Plaques, as well as our new Purpose Plaques. The Purpose Plaque line now includes three Richlite plaques with satin gold engraving plates. The corners of these plaques are carved with intricate and unique details that reflect the theme of each individual plaque. Be sure to check out the photos of the corner details!  Even better news:  a portion of the proceeds from your Purpose Plaque purchase go to funding community projects in Karatu District, Tanzania. 
Our catalog has also been redesigned with beautiful, vibrant images and helpful text to guide you through the process of choosing the perfect award or plaque for your event. Download a copy from our catalog page.

We’ve got more excitement in store for you this year!  We’re looking forward to implementing a new online collaboration tool for sharing artwork files to make working with us easier than ever. Plus, we have more plans for new product designs in the works. We’re hard at work to ensure we continue to offer the highest quality eco-friendly products with the highest possible standard of customer service. If you have suggestions for us, please get in touch!  We always welcome your feedback and look forward to working with you in 2011.
