Acrylic is good medium to consider if you are looking for affordable trophies. The trophies are flat and transparent and can be cut into a variety of shapes. The material can easily be etched with a design depicting what the award is for. The acrylic is set on a wooden base that can have a brass or other metal plaque attached to it. The plaque can be engraved with the information of your choosing. Acrylic is long lasting and will not corrode or wear away over time. The material is also aesthetically pleasing as it resembles glass and can be produced in a variety of thickness.
