Hockey with Grandpa - A special ornament

Rick Hancock is the president of Hancock Management LLC out of Derry, New Hampshire. Hancock Management provides management consulting services to commercial as well as government clients. Through systemic analysis and personalized application of best business processes, Hancock Management solves its’ client's performance problems. Additionally, the company is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business.

Mr. Hancock is not only a veteran and successful business man, but also a proud grandpa to two girls and a little boy (a future hockey all-star, of course). The custom-designed ornament captures a moment of grandpa lacing up his grandson’s skates, while the girls are chatting on the ice, hockey sticks in hand. The back side shows Mr. Hancock and all three grandchildren participating in a game of hockey on a frozen pond. If you have seen our Modern Santa ornament, HM197, then you are familiar with Rick Hancock’s clever ideas, as that was originally a custom ornament made for Hancock Management.

If you're interested in creating a custom piece for your company, town, church, or organization, give us a call and we can begin the design process. We will discuss your idea or help you to develop a concept which we then send off to our artists and they will give us a detailed sketch of the ornament, which we send to you for approval. Our process continues with the design being sculpted out of resin into a 3-D model. Pictures of this sculpted piece then goes to the customer for review, and once it is approved, we can create our one-of-a-kind vulcanized rubber mold for the ornament. After the mold is created, we can begin hand-casting the ornaments with our specialized centrifugal casting machine. Once the ornaments have cooled to raw solid pieces of pewter, they are deburred by hand, antiqued to bring out the detailing, buffed by hand, dusted, inspected, ribboned, and packaged. All in all, our custom ornament process takes around 6-8 weeks from an idea on paper to a batch of pewter ornaments in-hand. We can fast track the process for important events and deadlines, just give us a call at 866-282-7384 to discuss that option.
