When looking at Sports Trophies there can be a great selection of choice, however if you are looking for
something a little bit more special to mark an occasion then why not think about having some bespoke
awards made. These will not only make the person awarded the trophy feel more appreciated but they
also now have something completely unique that they can treasure forever.
Your bespoke trophy can be made to almost any specification and from a wide range of materials
including glass, crystal, aluminium, pewter, acrylic and stainless steel. You will also find that companies
who are able to manufacture your bespoke awards will also be able to add a range of effects. These
include; engraving, printing, powder coating, and anodising. If you are not sure of what you want from
your bespoke trophy you can ask your company to help you and the will most likely provide you with
some designs to help you. However, if you do know what you want and have a design in mind, they will
also be able to work from that.
Marking achievement with trophies is an age old tradition, designed to reward the participant for all the
hard work. They are most typically awarded at sporting events but can be awarded for almost anything
should someone think another person be deserving of one. The trophy can be traced as far back as
ancient Greece and throughout history trophies have been used to mark victories in war. They were
often made from body parts of the dead, which is fortunately not the case now. The tradition then
moved on to giving laurel wreath which is still quite common then eventually, the amphora which was
filled with olive oil. This can still be seen on all Olympic medals.
There are many different types of trophy for many different occasions. They can come with two handles,
be a bowl shape or have a figure mounted on a base. They will all normally be engraved. The event that
the trophy is being given for will usually dictate what type of trophy that is presented. For example,
when hunting it is common to have the head of the animals killed mounted on a wall as reminders of a
successful hunt. Keep your trophies special my making sure you are giving out bespoke awards that will
be treasured and put on display to remind that person of the appreciation shown for their participation.
