One of my favorite movies of a decade or so ago is “Shakespeare in Love.” The movie tells the fictional, seriocomic tale of how an ill-fated romance led the playwright from Stratford-upon-Avon to create “Romeo and Juliet.” Just before they must part, Shakespeare gives his lover a copy of the “Romeo” script, lovingly transcribed by a calligrapher and tied with an elegant ribbon.
You could do something similar with your next court of honor script. Rather than leave the honoree with nothing but a dog-eared photocopy of the script (if that), take the time to create a nicely formatted version and print it out on high-quality paper. If tying it with a ribbon doesn’t seem quite right, put it in a presentation folder instead. With a little time and effort, you can create a great keepsake item for your honoree.
