Trophy Engraving & Personalisation Service

Whether you're buying medals for a sports tournament, a trophy to mark someone's academic achievements, or a gift for someone who means a lot to you, you can use our engraving service to make your chosen item extra-special.

All of our awards can be personalised, so you can add the tournament details or even have the winner's name emblazoned on one. We also stock stylish engravable gifts, including decanters, hip flasks, tankards and crystal bowls.

How to Get Your Gift or Trophy Engraved

When you've found an item you love, just complete each section in the box on the right-hand side of the product description page. You'll need to specify the size of trophy you want if different versions are available, the quantity you need, and whether or not you'd like each item to be engraved. You may also be given other style options to choose from, depending on the award or gift you've picked.

Step 3 - Add your award or gift to your virtual shopping basket

If you've ordered more than one item, you can just click a button to repeat the same wording on all of them - a handy way of saving time if you're buying awards for a large tournament or prize-giving ceremony. Alternatively, you can click on the "Next Engraving" button and input the message you'd like added to the next item in your basket.

You'll then be asked to check your order details one more time before submitting it.

The whole process is quick and easy - and your engraved trophies, awards or gifts will be on their way to you in no time at all.

Our Trophy Engraving Services

We use a range of engraving techniques so that we can personalise awards and gifts made from many different materials. Here's a quick rundown of some of the methods we use:

Diamond Engraving

Capable of providing consistent results, this is a contemporary version of the traditional engraving technique. When hearing the word "engraving", most people automatically think about words or images being cut or carved into a solid surface, and that's exactly what diamond engraving consists of.

This high-tech process is carried out using a machine which can handle objects of varying shapes, so we can personalise cups and tankards, for example, as well as flat items, like base plates and medals. We create the artwork using vector files.

This engraving technique is suitable for use on a range of materials, such as:

  • Stainless steel
  • Pewter
  • Silver plate
  • Nickel plate

Laser Engraving

This engraving technique can be used to personalise objects made from acrylic or flat glass, or items coated with metal. We carry out this form of engraving with a machine that can carve a message into the surface of the item, using a laser beam.

Laser engraving is the ideal method of adding a unique aspect to glass employee achievement awards or brass presentation plaques. We usually prefer to work with vector files when laser engraving images, but we can also use high-quality bitmap files, if necessary.

We can even utilise sub-surface laser engraving technology to place an image or message deep within a block of glass, creating a really eye-catching effect.

Sandblasting

Our in-house sandblasting equipment enables us to etch onto the surface of glass and crystal awards or gifts, so the image or message looks as if it's been 'frosted' into the item.

To do this, we use a photographic process to create a mask, which we place on your engravable gift item, before applying blasts of compressed air and sand to it. This engraving method is a great way of adding elegant-looking messages to toasting glasses and cut-glass decanters.

Colour Printing

Finally, we can use colour printing to personalise items, such as medal boxes, brass plaques, and flat glass or crystal trophies. We apply specialist ink to the item and 'bake' it on, by placing it under UV light. Our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to print on clear and dark-coloured surfaces, as well as lighter-toned ones.
