Awards and Trophies 101
Just how many awards and trophies do you have?
Well, let’s just say, too many to count. We have three main suppliers we use for awards and trophies, so there’s certainly lots to choose from.
Where do we look for an award or trophy?
There’s more than one place you can look. To start, have a look at our catalogues page, which gives you an interactive, page by page approach from our favourite suppliers. Aside from that, you can also swing over to our parent company’s website at Artals Promotions and scroll through and search their online e-commerce website for what you’re looking for. Many of the products on that site are included in the page-by-page catalogues, but it does give you a different way for searching what you’re looking for.
Does the pricing we see online, include engraving? How does engraving pricing work?
No, no it doesn’t, and it’s because we like to ensure that we are always giving clients our very best pricing available, whenever they’re placing their order. For example, if you’re looking for a single soccer trophy, we usually charge a very low flat rate minimum charge on top. If you’re looking for a bunch of trophies, we’ll throw the engraving in for free. With many of the acrylic, glass and crystal awards, a large number of them require substantially more time to do the engraving, as well as requiring multiple test runs to ensure the final engraving point is placed as accurately as possible. So, most of the acrylic, glass and crystal awards have a 50% of cost engraving charge because of this additional setup and engraving time required. But, having said that, if you’re looking for bulk quantities of these types of awards, we’ll do our best to give you the best price available.
Is there a size limit to what wood can be engraved?
Yes, there’s actually two limits, the first being a size limit, the second being a weight limit. We can’t put anything on the laser that weights more than 50 pounds, so if you’ve got an award that was custom made by a blacksmith and sits 2 feet tall, it’s likely to be to heavy and as such, we won’t be able to put it into the laser. From there, our laser bed size is 32″ x 20″ but we do have a pass through that can be utilized. So, suppose you take that same 2 foot trophy but it’s hollow, so long as it’s not any wider than 32″, we should be able to do it. Please contact us if you have an oversize award or trophy that needs engraving.
