Three Award Engraving Options
Once you decide to engrave awards for recipients, you will need to choose is the type of engraving you’ll want to be used for the award. Most awards have a plate on the base which allows for personalization. In most cases, you’ll want to include the name of the award, the recipient’s name, the date the award is presented, and the logo or name of the organization making the presentation. If there is room, sometimes an award may include a relevant message, quote, or saying. You have three options for engraving awards.
1: Engraving on the Base of the Award
This type of award or trophy has a message laser-etched directly onto its base. Usually, the base is constructed of marble, or some other stone. This may limit the number of characters that can be used.
2: Engraving Directly on the Award
Some awards are designed to be engraved on directly. These are usually crystal or glass awards. These types of awards can support 2D images and 3D engraved images, or sometimes a combination of the two.
3: Engraving Plates Attached to the Base of the Award
These types of awards have a metal plate attached to the surface, usually on the base. They are typically gold or silver-plated. One of the advantages of engraving these awards is the versatility. They easily accept images, smaller text, and logos. Most of the time, metal plates are placed on wooden plaques or hardwood bases. Sometimes you’ll see them on the base of a crystal or marble award.
