“I first became acquainted with George Benton at Gifts & Engraving by George in my capacity as Chairman of the Glens Falls Centennial Committee (2007-2008). We were looking for appropriate awards to present to our major donors during the City’s 100th Birthday Year. We tried always to shop locally for any purchases made during this celebration. Gifts & Engraving by George certainly qualified as being local. More importantly, George Benton is good! The quality of material and workmanship is always of the highest standard, and the projects are always done expeditiously and with a personal and individual touch.

“Because of the great experience working with George Benton for The City of Glens Falls, it was an easy and obvious decision to go to George for The Charles R. Wood Theater when, as a member of the Board of Directors, I was asked to get some awards and plaques done for The Rising Stars program and our collection of vintage community photographs. I went to George with an outline of what I wanted, and he created absolutely stunning products.

“In my work with The Lake George Dinner Theatre and Wrightstage Productions I have had occasion to use George Benton as well. He is always my first choice and he has never failed. I recommend Gifts and Engraving by George to all who desire high quality, affordable awards and gifts.”

“I am Dave Snyder, Trustees Chairman for Trinity United Methodist Church in Gansevoort, NY and I have twice had the opportunity to purchase awards from George’s establishment. Both times I have been met with courtesy, professionalism and product knowledge regarding the type of award I wanted to present. It is refreshing in this age of “fast everything” to do business with an establishment that is customer oriented and produces the quality products that George does and at a reasonable price. I will do business with his establishment again “in a heart beat” and would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.”
