Award Engraving

The Use of Engraving on Trophy Awards 

Schools, business corporations and charities wish to recognise people who have made substantial contributions to their association. The victors in all these cases deserve a special recognition for their efforts and contributions. This is why a custom award engraved with the person’s name or a unique message is much appreciated by the recipient. Awards come in all shapes and sizes and so does award engraving on these awards.

Trophies can be made from crystal or acrylic, to wood, glass and plastic materials. The engraving on your trophy or plaque can be as important, if not more important than the actual design and material of the trophy itself. The engraving is about what the handing-over of the trophy is about, and can have the greatest impact by using a great design and a personalised, dedicated message. At Trophy & Medal Boutique we offer expert engraving and design services to our valued customers on trophies, medals, badges, plates and much more with the use of state-of-the-art technologies.

Academic Trophies

Academic Trophies for Scholastic Awards 

An academic trophy is a memorable gift to any person, and one to be proud of to boot! The purpose of these trophies as awards is to honour those who have achieved exceptional success or top status in any specific field or event. It offers winners a sense of accomplishment and lets them know that all their hard work was worth it in the end. Academic trophies that are usually handed out to scholars, university students and corporate personnel are more formal in design as opposed to those that are used for sports events and other activities.

Academic trophies can be anything from plastic, acrylic, glass, clear glass, cut glass and plaque trophies. It all depends on those instituting the awards, but most common for academic awards are plaques. Plaques come in a variety of finishes and are often attached with a brass plate which displays the winner’s name engraved on it. This gives a personalised appearance to any trophy award and is often done. At Trophy & Medal Boutique we offer all of above and much, much more to our valued customers.
