Four Recognition Award Questions to Find the Perfect Award Trophy for your Organization

Awards trophies are very popular when organizations prepare to recognize top performers at the end of the year. However, ordering an  award trophy can be overwhelming due to the vast number of options. Use these four recognition award questions in order to help you navigate the award trophy ordering process with ease: 

1. What type of recognition award is appropriate for the situation?
The material and design of the recognition award should complement the prestige of the award. Is this award trophy or plaque for the top honors at your organization? Then present a gleaming crystal trophymetal trophy, or an etched award plaque. Browse our award trophy collection to find the perfect trophy or plaque for both your award ceremony and your award budget. 

2. What do you want the recognition award to say?
An award trophy communicates achievement, prestige, and honor. The trophy or award plaque verse is the primary way to express specific information about your award. Baudville understands that it is hard to come up with your own verses at times and has pre-written award trophy and plaque verses to recognize a variety of occasions: 
  • Above & Beyond 
  • Achievement
  • Excellence
  • Making the Difference
  • Shining Star 

Can’t find a verse that sounds just right? Customize your own award trophy verse, and we’ll engrave it on the award trophy or plaque of your choice.

3. Do you need custom engraving?
Engraved award trophies allow you to select a verse and add a few personal lines at the bottom. You can add whatever you like with your engraving, but we suggest the recipient’s name, date, and name of your organization. However, you may also want to include your logo. Our custom awards require engraving and a short proof process. Don’t worry! Baudville engraves and ships same day! 

4. When do you need the recognition award?
Award trophies are personalized for each recipient through an engraving process. The engraving process includes the set up of design files by our graphic artists and requires your approval. Don’t forget to approve the personalization proof; you don’t want your award trophy to fall behind. Have a firm due date in mind when you order your recognition awards, and we will do everything we can to make sure they arrive on time!
