Thanks to the beautiful work of Walls of Fame, U.S. colleges and universities can proudly display their customized award plaque throughout their campuses. We get so many compliments from college presidents and other high-level campus administrators on how professional and impressive the plaques look. We sold so many of them with our first award, we now offer them with every higher education award we give, and everyone loves them. I spent a great deal of time searching for something I felt would look as prestigious as the awards we give, and as soon as I found these plaques, I knew they would be perfect. I would highly recommend using Walls of Fame plaques for an award that any recipient would be proud to hang on their wall. Ellen is so creative, helpful, and efficient, and we love working with her!

Walls of Fame does an outstanding job showcasing our brand. We love the plaques and so do our customers! On many levels, the plaques are terrific; they bring a sense of pride to the recipients while they become a vehicle providing extended and constant visibility for us. Their visibility helps position the magazine as an integral part of the fabric of this community. Our marketing strategy now includes this promotional tier of having plaques prominently seen in as many public spaces as possible. Walls of Fame is helping us make that happen. Additionally, Ellen’s years of experience in the publishing industry are very helpful. She understood the value of promotional plaques twenty years ago when she first pioneered her plaque company - long before publishers realized the power of the plaque.

Prior to starting ABC Design & Promotion/Walls of Fame, Ellen worked at the Washingtonian. Since then, we have maintained a great relationship and because of that, we have worked in various capacities with her for over twenty years. She has always represented Washingtonian with the highest integrity and professionalism. Ellen is a true professional and is enjoyable to work with. We are pleased to recommend her as someone to do business with. We consider her part of the Washingtonian family.
— Mike Johnson, CFO/Washingtonian Magazine
 
I hired Ellen to help build up Washingtonian Magazine’s advertising accounts in the Virginia territory. She was a great asset to our team for many years. Her interest and strength in the creative end of the business is what lead her to starting her public relations and advertising agency. I watched her business flourish and then it’s plaque division take off, creating a niche company that has been going strong ever since. She built up a large and loyal following. Because she did such an impressive job, we established her company as our endorsed plaque vendor. Think of Walls of Fame as a publisher’s extended promotional department. Ellen is a creative and very competent marketing pro that any publisher would be lucky to work with.

I have worked with Ellen for over 15 years. When I was publisher of the Washington Post Media’s Montgomery Gazette, I had Walls of Fame create the plaques for our award programs/galas. The plaques were always a hit. I also referred clients who received editorial coverage and wanted their day in the news to last forever to Walls of Fame. Whether it was one plaque or an order of 200, each job was hand delivered with complete follow through. The work was beautiful. Walls of Fame is extremely dependable and great to work with. I will always remember the time Ellen met me at my kids soccer field on a Saturday with a production proof that needed to be approved for printing the following Monday to make our event deadline. I highly recommend working with her and the quality products Walls of Fame/ABC Design & Promotion consistently delivers
