We have heard the members loud and clear. Senior management at HQ are currently in the process of reviewing the awards with an eye toward making them better quality.
The exact changes I cannot share right now but as a recent recipient of triple play myself I agree that we can do a lot better.

I know that ARRL folks read this forum so I wanted to express my
extreme disappointment in the "plaque" I purchased for my recent
Triple Play award.  It is advertised on ARRL.org as "laminated", but
it's simply attached to the back with a plastic hook glued to it.
I was going to obtain a REAL wood plaque base ($14 on etsy.com
<http://etsy.com>) to mount it on, but first the plastic hook on the
back would need to go.  Guess what?  The hook is GLUED DIRECTLY TO
THE CERTIFICATE, not plexiglas, so removing it destroys the award.
Fortunately I saw what was happening before the hook was completely
removed, but I still have a nice large scar on the certificate.
You got me this time, ARRL, but it won't happen again.
