Requesting a Quote
 
The Image Award Ribbons web site is provided as a shopping tool for resellers, disitributors, and retailers to browse our extensive awards product line, select products and customization options, and to prepare Requests For Quotation quickly and electronically.

Once your request for quote is received we will call to finalize your order. A complete CUSTOMIZED quote will then be emailed to you which will include quantity discounts, pricing for additional customization features, any additional charges and shipping charges.
 
Quotes for most large and special orders are typically emailed back to you within 24-48 hours. Complicated quotes may require additional time.
