The Investors in People Accreditation Plaques

Investors in People endeavour to empower businesses to make work better, by focusing on the people that make things work. Concentrating on employee wellbeing, apprentice development, and long-lasting strategies to encourage growth, the Investors in People accreditation is one to be proud of. Established in 1991, Investors in People programmes have awarded thousands of custom accreditation plaques, designed, manufactured, personalised, and distributed by Gaudio.

“We have been working with Gaudio for over 5 years now, and the quality of product and service is still exceptional. Everyone at the team is super friendly, their designs are innovative and creative, and they all go above and beyond to ensure our production line and final product remain seamless and to the highest possible standard. They are a fantastic team to work with and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Gaudio for many more years to come.”

Personalised Plaque Design

Investors in People have worked with Gaudio since 2010, and in that time their plaques have seen multiple designs to match the ever-evolving Investors in People brand, without losing sight of their core consistency. Gaudio’s in-house design team had the opportunity to work closely with the team at Investors in People on the rebrand of their custom wall plaques.

The design process begins with a simple brief, and some useful design elements. The Investors in People logo is a combination of classic and contemporary and, alongside the colour palette used across Investors in People marketing and media, offered a really flexible starting point for our team to get creative. The new design utilised different colours and finishes across all levels of achievement, and each plaque is complete with personalised engraving.

Manufacturing Custom Award Plaques

Each custom plaque is manufactured in-house at Gaudio.
Our aluminium signs are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, without limitations on design. Two sheets of aluminium, cut with precision, sit flush against each other, displaying the Investors in People laurel design.
To recognise each level of accreditation, the design is replicated in four distinct styles; blue, gold, silver, and platinum.
Blue and gold plaques are anodised for hard-wearing, subsurface colour. Silver plaques embrace aluminium’s ability to demonstrate beautiful textures with a brushed polish, and platinum plaques showcase an eye-catching mirror shine finish.
The Investors in People Accreditation plaques are individually personalised prior to shipping. The plaque is engraved with individual details from every accredited business, directly into the top layer of aluminium. Unlike stickers or vinyl, engraving will not peel away, and remains clearly visible against the aluminium surface.
