About Us

Our mission at Recognition Plus is to help you create long-lasting relationships with your clients through the power of promotional products & awards.

Our History

Roy Smith founded the company in 1984 after 24 years with a retail corporation. The business grew as the family grew and in 1988 Jamie Neely (Roy’s son-in-law) joined the company to run the signage department RP Signs, which is a big part of the business today- especially is ADA signage.  RP Signs does a tremendous amount of work for local hospitals, builders and architects offering installation services as well.

Recognition Plus provides all types of engraving services from hand engraving to pantograph to computerized. “Standard engraving is a skill you can learn. But hand engraving is a talent- an art,” Roy Smith explains proudly, because Recognition Plus employs one of the few hand engravers in Charlotte, his son Reid of RDS Engravers, which is why many of the city’s jewelry stores send work to him.

Ribbons, name tags and trophies are only a small part of the business. Card cases, key chains, desk accessories, pen sets and display cases for sports memorabilia are also available and make great gift items. Wall plaques range in price to suit any budget from solid walnut boards to fiber board options with marbleized looks. There  is also a wealth of traditional awards to choose from like pewter and silver plated bowls and cups that are passes from one group to another in corporations and organizations.

Recognition Plus also carries a full range of advertising specialty items that can be imprinted or embroidered such as apparel, portfolios, umbrellas, buttons, magnets, coffee cups, luggage, money clips, picture frames and more.

As a family owned and managed business, the staff at Recognition Plus understands relationships when providing products and services for the individual walk in client, the small business’ as well as our long-time clients including:

Atrium Health,  Queens University,  Novant Health,  YMCA of Greater Charlotte,  Bank of America, Wells Fargo,  UNC Charlotte,  Carowinds, & Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department.
