About Us

We Offer Trophy, Plaque, Gifts & Award Engraving

Bardach Awards, Inc., the country’s premier source for awards large and small, is in its third generation of family ownership. In 1969, Charles Bardach and his son, Thomas S. Bardach, founded the company in the Broad Ripple neighborhood of Indianapolis. Bardach Awards is featured in a-e-mag.com. Read the article to learn more about The Broad Ripple of Bardach Awards - Family and Service.

Known for years as the Broad Ripple Trophy Center, the landmark company sat at the corner of Guilford and Broad Ripple Avenue. As business grew decade after decade, the confines of the historic district could no longer accommodate the needs of Bardach Awards and its nationwide clientele. In 2008, the family relocated operations to the northwest side of the city.

Now owned and managed by company president Diane Bardach-Beck, Bardach Awards, Inc. is a certified Women’s Business Enterprise. Tom Bardach and brothers Steve and Ryan are key leaders in the business, and each of our associates has, on average, 12 years’ experience. The family vision and dedication combined with the experience of our seasoned staff ensure that the Bardach standard of excellence is met every day with every client.


At Bardach Awards, quality is at the heart of each item we create. From our sales team to our art department to the men and women who build the awards, etch the glass, and engrave the signs, every associate strives to exceed your expectations. In order to make the finest gifts and awards, we begin with the finest materials. We source product from only the best vendors and personally inspect every item before putting it into the manufacturing process. And before you ever see your order, we’ve used our white gloves in a stringent quality-assurance process that guarantees each piece meets the Bardach standard of excellence.


Bardach Awards has a longstanding reputation for quality, service, and integrity. Our clients know that we will deliver their orders accurately and on time. What’s more, we guarantee 100% satisfaction with all our products.

Bardach Awards is known across the country as a leader in the awards industry. Tom Bardach, our founder, produces one of the field’s largest, most comprehensive and beautiful catalogs—which is, of course, a reflection of the impressive array of products that we offer. For all these reasons, Bardach Awards is the leading source for corporate awards.


Our sales team specializes in creating customized programs to complement your special occasion. Whether your budget is modest or unlimited, we will work with you so that, in the best fashion, you can recognize your colleague’s years of service, convey appreciation, or award superior achievement. There is no middleman when you work with the Bardach team, so you can speak directly to the technician producing your custom award at any time.

Our clients are our partners, and we work hard to anticipate their needs and meet their demands for new and different products. To that end, we invest in the latest technology and equipment, such as our new fiber-mark laser, which marks 2-D data matrixes, bar codes, logos, and serial numbers (to name just a few possibilities) directly on a variety of surfaces, including anodized aluminum, bare metals and alloys, brass, stainless steel, titanium, ceramics, and engineered plastic.
