In April 1991, Cynthia LeCompte started C and B Awards at her kitchen table. Thirty-three years later, she is retiring and passing the Covington-based business down to her son Michael and daughter-in-law Kathryn to run.
“It’s been quite the ride,” said Cynthia.
C and B Awards (27635 Covington Way SE #6, Covington, WA) originally started with youth awards and has since added a wide range of products and services to serve youth, businesses, fire and police departments, electrical contractors and others in Covington, Maple Valley, Black Diamond, Enumclaw, Kent and other neighboring cities. Some of their products and services include:
Kathryn loves being creative on the job, particularly with design and helping turn a customer’s vision into a reality. She tries to think outside the box to create unique items. She loves the variety of tasks.
“There’s a lot of diversity in the job,” Kathryn said. “I never do the same thing every day.”
Cynthia is staying on for a bit to help impart her decades of knowledge in the business to Michael and Kathryn. Michael does screen printing and handles the finances and organizational tasks. Kathryn does the design, website, embroidery, laser engraving and sand carving. In her retirement, Cynthia and her husband hope to do more camping, fishing and playing with their four grandchildren who range in age from 7 to 18.
“It’s a year of change,” Cynthia said, confident that her family will continue her legacy.
C and B Awards does everything in-house. This means a faster turnaround time and customers get to work directly with the designer to bring their ideas to life. Stop by and say “hi” or browse their catalog online to see a sample of their vast product line. They are your local one-stop show for awards, signage, screen printing and more!
The Covington Chamber uses C and B Awards for our new member plaques, name tags and awards. Their pricing, turnaround time and customer service are excellent!
