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.
