Corporate Awards

Corporate Awards for Any Event or Occasion

When celebrating company or corporate achievements we tend to recognise those occasions and achievements with the handing over of some token or reward.  This will serve as evidence of the outstanding achievement, and give the winner an object of pride to show off as a reward.  Corporate awards that allow peers and seniors to recognise, reward and celebrate your work can be a great self-esteem enhancer, and displaying a hard-earned award or trophy in pride of place in the office or home can be very fulfilling.  It always serves as a great conversation piece as people tend to be fascinated by displays of brilliance and accomplishment, and it serves as a constant reminder and evidence of the achievement wherever it is displayed – whether in the home, club or in the office.

When choosing corporate awards it is essential that the trophy or award fits the occasion.  At glamorous events where high level or very prestigious achievements are recognised, it is usually necessary to use a stylish and glamorous piece, whereas at more informal occasions such as fun days it is acceptable to use smaller and more novel pieces.

Awards come in so many different shapes, styles and materials that it can be difficult to find exactly the correct award required.  This is where our experts at Trophy & Medal boutique can help – not only do we stock a very wide range of sophisticated, stylish and elegant trophies, we can also provide guidance on the best selection for your corporate awards!  We can also advise on engraving and other special effects such as adding logos and other graphics.  We make a point of it to ensure that your selection falls within your budget, however big or small.

Glass Sandblasting

Engraving with Glass Sandblasting

People have so many ways of recognising great service, memorable events and wonderful achievements, and at these occasions and events they normally look for some kind of physical ornament, gift or trophy to give to the person/s involved.  They want to show appreciation and want to give the receiver of the award something as a token of recognition of their outstanding contribution. Often it is difficult to find something that is suited to the particular celebration, and the one thing that will always stand out above other awards is glass.  Nothing spells class and success better than a well-placed, sparkly and stylish glass award.  It lends glamour to any mantelpiece, panache to every office, and elegance to any trophy cupboard.

Of course it is also necessary to know what the award was for, and for this reason it has to be engraved.  Glass is notoriously difficult to engrave, and very few people are able to engrave successfully by hand.  Glass sandblasting makes engraving easy and it can also be applied to create logos, graphics or other messages on glass.

Glass sandblasting involves the use of a specialised machine with very narrow, adapted nozzle which sprays extremely fine sand at high pressure against a glass surface, and abrades to it the point of leaving an indentation or effect.  Using this method enables engravers to create beautiful graphics and fine fonts on otherwise delicate pieces of glass.  It is also much less likely to damage the glass object; even fine crystal and wine glasses can be engraved using glass sandblasting!

If you have a stylish piece of glass, trophy or award that you need to have engraved, sandblasting is the best method to choose.  At Trophy & Medal Boutique we have a team of experts who know a lot of about this specialised craft and will engrave your glass beautifully!  Contact us today for quality glass trophies and excellent engraving!

Soccer Award / Trophy

A Soccer Award or Trophy for Every Occasion

Nothing rewards a good game of football than a great soccer award or trophy at the end of a game or end of a season.  Many soccer players dream of getting the “man of the match” trophy, and others have bigger dreams – they want to be the player of the season, or the best club captain of the decade. But it is not only individuals that cover trophies – one of the best known trophies in soccer is the European Cup, and this trophy is made for an entire team.  Even those who do not play football will usually be able to recognise this very famous trophy!

Of course there are many levels of football or as it is known in some countries, soccer.  The levels of competition vary tremendously and range from junior school football clubs to world-wide events such as the world cup.  Of course the soccer award or trophy should also reflect the type of achievement and level of football celebrated.  For instance, a junior school trophy will be a lot less elaborate and smaller than a country club football award.  The more prestigious the event, the more expensive and stylish the trophy has to be.  Keep in mind that a trophy is a visual confirmation of something that has been achieved or a game that has been won.  It is a marked reminder of prowess and dedication, and is meant to a very visual piece.

A lot of focus is placed on an award or trophy, not only during the ceremony, but also afterwards.  It is always looked at – whether it sits on a mantelpiece, a display cabinet, or in an office, it is there to be looked at.  It is therefore essential that it very closely represents the type of achievement.  Nothing can dampen the spirits quite like getting a terrible, cheap little trophy for something that you have been pouring your heart and soul into for a long time!  You want to hold something of substance, feel it, look at it, and feel that your achievement has been acknowledged through this object, so, do keep in mind that finding the right one is essential!
