How can I order more award certificates?

I'd like to order additional* APEX Award certificates for my staff, co-workers and vendors who contributed to the winning entries. What's the easiest way to do that?

Here are the two simplest ways:
1. Photocopy or use the APEX Additional Certificates order form on the outside back cover of the printed 24-page booklet, Announcing the Winners of APEX 2017 (pdf). This booklet mails to all APEX participants.

2. Click on the APEX 2017 Additional Certificates Order Form (pdf) to download and print it out. You can mail the order form with payment, or fax it with your credit card authorization to 703/643-2329.

(If you prefer, you may scan the completed form and marked-up certificates, and email them to info@ApexAwards.com with your credit card payment information. We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.)

Payment must accompany your order. Certificate orders cannot be phoned in.

Use either form to order additional certificates for co-workers, supporting vendors or clients.

You can order exact duplicates of your original award certificate, or you may customize the additional certificates with the names of supporting staff, vendors or clients.

*Note: One Award Certificate is sent to the entrant at no charge, as stated on the entry form. To order additional Award Certificates -- at a charge of $15 each -- please use the APEX 2017 Additional Certificates Order Form.

If you'd like to order additional certificates for the previous year's APEX Awards, please use the APEX 2016 Additional Certificates Order Form (pdf).

Ordering Tip: The easiest and best way to order
is to photocopy the original certificate and clearly write in the new names you want to appear on the certificate -- of contributing staffers, vendors or clients. Then simply send the photocopy with your order form and payment.

Mail the order form with payment, or fax it with your credit card authorization to 703/643-2329.

(If you prefer, you may scan the completed form and marked-up certificates, and email them to info@ApexAwards.com.)

Payment must accompany your order.
