Frequently Asked Questions

Many factors go into the material of custom awards and trophies - primarily, the overall design you want and your budget. You have to consider the weight for shipping, durability, where the award will be placed and much more. We work with crystal, plexiglass, various metals (gold, silver etc.) stone, wood and lucite, to name a few materials. We can even do a combination of materials. The possibilities are endless. The Award Group is a one-stop shop for recognition needs and custom awards. We have a full line of products such as certificates, plaques, trophies, emblematic jewelry, medallions, scrolls, certificates and much more.

You can do anything you want with color when it comes to engraving or printing. We can even match the colors of your logo. When designing custom awards and trophies, our team will discuss the variety of options that are available to you in terms of color and engraving.

When designing a custom award, our clients are always sent a 3D rendering of their award. Clients will then have the opportunity to make any changes to the custom award and approve the final design. Once we receive approval, the custom award is then produced.

Yes, quantity and budget are always taken into consideration. When it comes to custom awards, the greater the quantity ordered the less expensive the unit cost. The Award Group will work with your budget and help you to get the best price possible.

Our team is committed to providing the most efficient and fastest service to get your custom award into your hands quickly. When a new custom award is ordered, one of the first questions we ask is “What is the time frame for the award?” Certain products take longer than others. When we design for a client, we take into account their budget, the overall look they want and the time frame. We have a line of plaques, crystal and desktop awards that can be turned around in 4 weeks. The average advance time is 4-8 weeks prior to an event. If you are starting an entire award program, it’s wise to allow 3-4 months depending on its quantity and complexity. This allows for concept, design, revisions, sampling, manufacturing, and shipping.

A custom award will not go into production until the client has approved the design or if time allows an actual sample. Any tweaks or changes can be made at this stage of the process. Once production starts changes are difficult if not available. That is why allowing ample time to make a sample is always advisable.

At The Award Group, we make ordering custom awards easy. One of our experienced sales associates will walk you through each step of the process. First, we will need to know what type of an award you’re looking for, the overall look you want, your budget, how many awards you need, and the time frame. Next, our design team will get to work on creating a custom award tailored to your needs. Once designs are created, they will be sent to you for approval. Clients are sent a 3D rendering of the award. Any requested tweaks are made and the client is asked to approve the final design. Once approved, the custom award will go into production. Ample time to make a sample is always advisable.
