Welcome to The Instrumentalist Award and Book Store

2023 Standing Order Confirmation Forms will be sent in the mail in January.

Watch your mail (USPS) for a catalog and confirmation letter in January. We also will send a reminder postcard.

Standing Order Confirmation Form

Standing Orders start shipping in early March. Make any changes (or add a purchase order number if required by your school) by February 28th. Orders may be placed through the online store, by email or by calling 888-446-6888.

If you have any questions or problems, please email us at [email protected] or call 888-446-6888.

Important: If your school has any outstanding invoices from a previous year, even if the order was placed by another director, we cannot process new orders until the account has been paid.

You can set up a Standing Order at any time during the year.

About Standing Orders: Place the student awards you want to present each year on a standing order. You will receive confirmation in the mail in January and February. Make any changes you want before March 1 (including adding a purchase order number) and then receive your order in mid March. This avoids last minute rush shipping charges if you get busy and forget to order on time. There is never any obligation - cancel at any time.

Awards Shipping: Most orders ship the day we receive them or the next business day and will arrive in 4-6 business days on average. We ship from south Florida, so nearby states will receive them more quickly. Shipping rates are posted below.

Contact us if you need an invoice emailed to you.

Important Award Policies:

1. We will only ship awards to a school address (with the exception of certificate frames which may be ordered by parents and students).

2. If you are presenting one of our awards, you must also purchase at least one element of a student award from us to present to the student. The awards are intended to honor the students, and schools may not just put the student's name on a wall plaque.

3. These awards (including the names and images) are registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and are protected by registered marks. Duplication of these awards or the creation of similar awards is prohibited and will be prosecuted. We are a sole source provider of our awards; there are no authorized dealers of these awards.

Full award policies are found here.



Orders are usually shipped via FedEx. Charges within the continental U.S. are based on the dollar amount of awards ordered.

Amt of order     Shipping
Up to $100         $15
$100.01-250      $20
Over $250          $25

Orders with only certificates and pins ship via USPS and shipping charge will vary based on quantity ordered. Check with us if you need the amount. (Note: if you order pins/certificates only through the store, it will automatically charge you the standard shipping above but we will refund any excess charged.) Shipping rates subject to change.

Rush shipping  is available although FedEx is not guaranteeing delivery times this spring. For delivery outside the continental U.S. or rush orders, you must call 888-446-6888 or 847-446-5000, or email [email protected]

Certificate Information:

It is strongly suggested that you do NOT put certificates through a printer but instead write the student's name in ink. The gold seals and ribbons tend to come off in most printers and destroy the certificate.
