Atta-Boy Awards is one of the interior’s oldest family-owned businesses. Started by the White family in 1976, the business expanded yearly, continually adding new products and services.
What began as a hobby engraving knives has grown into a full service awards store serving customers worldwide. Today the store is run by second generation owners Bryan & Maew White,
A tour of the showroom today reveals not only trophies and plaques, but gold pans, acrylic awards, medals, ribbons, rosettes, gavels, dog tags, desk pen sets, mugs, clocks, statues, name tags, plastic signs, and a variety of other items.
Their wide range of services includes laser engraving, full color transfer sublimation, and custom award design. Serving both military and civilian clients, the Whites have wide array of custom designed awards incorporating company logos and Alaskan designs.
“We’ve spent over four decades building Interior Alaska’s finest awards store,” Bryan White says. “My goal is to maintain that focus while bringing a smile to our customer’s faces. In the recognition business, our products positively influence people’s lives. That’s a wonderful tradition to keep alive.”
The hallmark of this store is not simply the wide range of quality products, but the friendly customer service that is a part of every transaction. Upon entering the showroom, customers are greeted by the family’s Springer Spaniel, Willow. That tradition began with the business in 1976, when Gus, then the family dog, would welcome customers to the store. When Gus passed away, Sugar made the daily trip to the store for 13 years, followed by Daisy, Molly and now Willow. Willow now has her own fan club; people who stop by just give her a quick belly rub.
