Various Options With Our Trophies

Trophies and Their Various Options

The year is slowly coming to an end, which means only one thing: it’s time for awards! Yes, schools are starting to prepare for awards evenings, athletes are closing off seasons and competing in nationals, and music competitions are being held.

Now, only one choice remains: what type of trophy will you choose? There is such a wide variety available to you and so many materials that trophies can be made out of. Not to worry though, we here at Trophy & Medal Boutique share the different options to make your choice easier.

The Different Types of Materials

At Trophy & Medal Boutique, we can offer you a variety of trophies in all kinds of materials. So, your choices are certainly not limited, but you will still probably want to be able to make an educated decision.

Glass and crystal are seen as the more traditional materials when it comes to awards. Glass has a look of high quality, which is why so many people opt for it. Both glass and crystal can reflect light beautifully, making them strikingly eye-catching. They can, however, be more expensive. So, a nice alternative is acrylic trophies, though you don’t have to sacrifice quality or beauty along with cost. Acrylic materials are very easy to mould, which means that your trophy can take on almost any design or shape. This is a perfect option for the more creative types.

Another quality material that we enjoy using is wood. Wooden trophies have a very classy feel about them since they are usually made from mahogany, rosewood, and other high-quality woods. Then, we also have resin trophies available. These are more durable than plastic which makes them quite popular, so choose them if you want something strong and resilient. Metal is also a good option if you prefer durability.

A Range of Style Options

Now that you know about the different materials, you’ll also be happy to know that a trophy can have many styles. This mostly depends on you as a customer, and we are more than happy to design a custom trophy just for you.

Cups are a popular style option for a trophy in sports. The shape comes from ancient times when a victor would drink from a chalice as a form of celebration, so they are symbolically significant. However, you don’t have to stick to a cup for symbolism. Figurines are also popular and they have an added bonus of intricacy which makes them feel special. Though, if you prefer plainer designs, you can always select the pillar trophies. They are simple, yet sleek and modern looking.
