Sunday, July 13 is Embrace Your Geekness Day –

the best time of year to realize your awesome geekness, or that of one of your closest geek friends.


Closely related to the Nerd, a Geek can be identified by their brainy, un-brawny demeanor and uncanny technical ability. They are brilliantly fluent in tech talk and computer lingo while their enthusiasm for all things technical usually defies their formal, studious flair. So don those goofy glasses, suspenders, bow tie, pocket protector, laptop or tablet and show us your geek, loud and proud!


Geek is the new black. In this day and age, it’s hard to believe that actress Julia Roberts considers herself “an utterly average, total geek,” but the moniker no longer evokes a less-than-average connotation –so don’t fight it. After all, one of America’s most well-known geeks is Bill Gates … and we all know where that leads! That’s right, it leads directly to a commemorative plaque on the Wall of Fame! You, too can have (or give) one – it’s easy to show the world how intelligent, technically savvy and clever you (or your geek friend) really are with a wall of fame plaque -black or blue marble coated aluminum struck with a laser to reveal the gold or silver beneath … mounted to your choice of wood, glass or acrylic board.


Maybe you’re an inventor geek. If you are, we have an entire web page filled with patent and trademark plaques that can be designed in a variety of styles on a wide range of materials, and include such geeky details as recipient names, official patent seals and trademark stats.
