The Emotional Value of Decorative Glass Trophies

The Emotional Value of Decorative Glass Trophies

Everybody knows that decorative glass trophies are used for much more than a reward to celebrate or acknowledge a particular event or achievement. The joy of receiving such a trophy goes way beyond the immediate acknowledgement that it indicates at the time. This is why decorative glass trophies can be so valuable… the emotional value these items carry is often a lot more valuable than the trophy itself!

The incentive industry is not only successful because the suppliers sell good looking decorative glass trophies, but because there is also an ingrained value in receiving an award that is intangible and in some ways more valuable than cash. It helps to motivate and drive performance, and brings people to aspire to new heights. It is more about the experience than the value of the trophy. At the end of the day, people become highly motivated by pleasant experiences, and receiving recognition in the way of a trophy is essentially a good experience. These experiences remain in the memory for a long time – most people can still remember all the awards they received in their lives, even those received in junior school for winning a race or excelling in academic achievement.

Trophy value works well because they trigger a memory, a feeling of self-worth, as well as a feeling of pride that is not easily forgotten. Having a tangible example to display such as a memorable award piece or decorative glass trophies helps to solidify that validation of something done well, and the feeling of accomplishment that goes along with it. The piece will remain there – it cannot be spent on groceries, clothing, petrol or other things that may take the fancy. It is there to stay and to remain in its true form to remind the recipient of that moment in life when he or she was rewarded for something great that was done.

Because a trophy is something that will stay with you and motivate you in the long term, reminding you of something wonderful you have done, you need a piece that is long-lasting and attractive. Decorative glass trophies are durable and beautiful, and make great display pieces that could lead to some very interesting conversations. Whether they are placed on a mantelpiece, in a display cupboard or in an office, they are great to look at and easy to remember.

Pillar Trophies and More

Using Pillar Trophies and other Awards as Reward and Recognition

Trophies and other types of awards have been used for centuries to reward employees, soldiers, sports competitors, and participants of events for their efforts. These trophies present people with an opportunity to be recognised for their performance or achievement, and doing this has a range of benefits. Not only does it provide validation of effort and performance, but it also provides a timely reminder that the person gets to keep and display (if they choose to do so) to remind others of their outstanding performance or achievements.

Pillar trophies are typically awarded to achievers in sports events, and there are a few different types of pillar trophies that can be used to indicate the significance of the occasion or achievement. There are also a lot of other types of trophies that can be used as a reward, and they always provide the winner with some sort of recognition of hard work or a great deal of effort.

When it comes to employees, it is crucial to recognise hard work, talent, and achievement. Winning a trophy makes them feel that they have accomplished something special; that the hard work or long hours were well worth it, and this motivates them to achieve even greater things! Let’s face it; all employers want a motivated workforce.

When it comes to schools or academic institutions, pillar trophies also play a great part in motivation and reward. Students and school children who receive these awards also feel that they stand out from the crowd, that they have done something worthwhile, and that they have been given an opportunity to shine.

Pillar trophies are there to remind us of the origins of trophies and awards. The ancient Greeks used trophies to reward soldiers and sports heroes. The pillars signify the pillars used in the most important and famous Greek and Roman buildings of the time, and these pillars signify strength and longevity. These trophies are therefore there to remind us of the achievements of ancient peoples, and to repeat these in the modern day.

Marble Trophies for Sale

Looking for Marble Trophies for Sale? We can Help!

While there are a lot of different types of trophies and awards used in a variety of environments, marble trophies have their own charm and significance. Marble signifies strength, longevity, beauty, and achievement. Awarding someone a heavy marble trophy will create an indelible memory, and because marble can last and remain beautiful for centuries, it is truly one of the best materials when it comes to choosing an award or trophy for someone who achieved something exceptional.

Marble trophies are hard to beat – they are solid objects that are wonderful to look at. Presenting someone with one of these, instead of a lightweight cup or trophy somehow signifies a much higher level of prestige. The weight of it is equal to the weight of the achievement, and it somehow seems a lot more significant with marble. The awarding of a trophy puts a tangible and long-lasting value on the achievement and serves as a continuous reminder of what was achieved. In ancient times, these were something to behold, but as time moved on and technology improved, there is now a wide range of trophies and medals for sale in just about any price bracket. You can get anything from plastic cups to marble trophies for sale, yet they all signify the same thing: achievement in some form or another.

Ancient Greeks started the tradition of awarding soldiers prizes or awards for good performance. In olden times, these brave souls were awarded a variety of things to reward them for achievement or accomplishment in battle or training. Often, they were awarded shields, coins (or medals), and sometimes even olive oil (which is where the wreath comes from).

When you are looking for marble trophies for sale, there are a few things that you have to consider. You have to find a trophy that is heavy and solid, because this carries the perception of quality. Some types of trophies are set on marble bases, and this is because marble provides the weight needed to keep the trophy upright and stable. Marble can also be engraved but, since engraving without a shadow or lighting colour can get lost in the marble, it is best to find a specialist that can engrave marble and imprint it with a coloured paint to make the letters stand out better. It is also good to engrave a plaque and attach it to the marble trophy.
