Welcome to The Instrumentalist Award and Book Store

Place your order now for your 2023 Music Awards

Our staff is ready to help you honor your top students. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, and most awards ship out within one business day of the order being placed.

Orders may be placed at any time through this online store, by emailing [email protected] or by calling 888-446-6888. (We are available to answer phone calls between 8 am and 4 pm Eastern time, please email us outside of those hours, and we will get back to you shortly.)

If you have already received a standing order, you may still order additional items as needed at any time.

Awards Shipping: Most orders ship the day we receive them or the next business day (approximate shipping times below). We ship from south Florida, so nearby states will receive them more quickly. Shipping rates are posted below. Rush shipping available upon request.

Most awards are shipped ground FedEx unless otherwise requested. (Orders of certificates/pins only are usually sent via USPS). Email or call for shipping costs outside the contiguous U.S.

We do not offer engraving services. (Award plates should be rotary engraved, not laser engraved.)

2023 Standing Orders were shipped in early March and should have arrived. Please contact us if you have not received yours.

Check the contents of your package as soon as it arrives and contact us if there are any problems.
Invoices are mailed separately.

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.

Contact us if you need an invoice emailed to you.

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.

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.
