Custom Awards has access to over 1 million logos. If we don’t have the logo or design you desire, we will assist you in designing a logo for your company or organization.
Ordering a Plaque is Easy:
Once you have found the plaque that you like, email or call us with the Plaque Number and Quantity (no minimum). Also include the date that the plaque is needed by.
Supply any wording you wish or tell us the purpose of the plaque (i.e. Retirement, Promotion, Name, Dates, etc.) and we will supply wording for you.
We prefer Two Weeks notice on plaque orders. However, we can accommodate for Last Minute Requests.
We have over 1 million stock logos. If you need a custom logo, then simply supply the artwork or web page with the logo on it and we will add it (additional charges may apply)
We will “Plaquify” your wording and logo and send you a proof for your review.
Our plaques are rotary diamond drag engraved, which provides a more defined, in-depth look as opposed to laser engraving, which we use for glass awards.
Types of Plaques:
Traditional Award Plaques are typically a wall-hung recognition award. We offer a large variety of styles and finishes for every occasion and event.
We also offer custom-made, hard-carved mahogany plaques with the option of full color and varying shapes … and our own in-house glass and brass … floating glass over a rosewood piano board – perfect for retirements and corporate recognition!
Trophies are a time-honored way of awarding achievement. Whether it’s a championship in a school trophy case or a glass award in a corporate office, trophies are always proudly displayed. Our experts will assist you in creating the perfect trophy for those special events at a price you can afford.
With hundreds of designs in stock, Custom Awards offers a variety of trophies to meet any specific occasion. We also provide customization.
Trophies can take the shape of two-handled cups, bowls, or mugs (all usually engraved); statues of people, animals, and architecture while displaying words, numbers or images. While trophies traditionally have been made with metal figures, wood columns, and wood bases, in recent years they have been made with plastic figures and marble bases. This is to retain the weight traditionally associated with a quality award and make them more affordable to use as recognition items. Recently trophies have also been made using a resin and molds.
Types of Trophies:
Traditional Trophies can range from a Cup mounted on a wooden base to plastic or wooden columns with specific figures on the top.
Our trophies are made on premise in our fully-stocked trophy room. We can match prior trophies made or offer new design ideas.

A Challenge Coin is a small coin or medallion (usually military), bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. Traditionally, they are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. In addition, they are also collected by service members. In practice, challenge coins are normally presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization.
There are two main types of challenge coins being manufactured by various companies today. The first, called “hard enamel”, is a process adopted from ancient Chinese lapel pins and uses hard baked enamels to give each coin a smooth finish. The more common process is known as “soft enamel” and leaves each coin with a textured surface, whereby the raised metal areas formed by stamping the design into metal are raised above the enamel color fills.
