We aim to process and dispatch all orders within 2-3 working days. However, if artwork is required on glass awards the dispatch timescale is from acceptance of the final approval, the total timescales for glass orders can be up to 10 working days.
I'd like to add multiples of the same product but with different engraving, how do I do this?
On the product details page of the trophy, medal, or award you'd like to order; enter the first engraving text you'd like and click 'Add to Basket'. Then if you are placing an order on a computer or laptop, you will remain on the product page so simply edit the engraving text and click ‘Add to Basket’ again, repeat this until you have added all the engraving you need for that product. Alternativity, if you are on mobile device, when clicking ‘Add to Basket’ you will be taken to your basket.

Product Information

I would like to order some engraved giftware but cannot find this on your website?
You can still find some engraved gifts on our website. However, our sister company Gift Store holds the same product range plus thousands more!
I have seen you have a trophy showing as 10cm, does this include the base?
Yes! All our measurements on the website (unless specified) are the total height of the trophy, from the bottom of the base, whether than be resin, plastic or marble base, to the highest point of the trophy.
Are your medals made from plastic?
No, all of our medals are made from metal.
Can you engrave up to the edge of the glass awards?
No, there is a 1cm gap around the edge of the artwork and the edge of the glass.
What is a bespoke centre disc?
The centres we produce are created in-house using a high quality printing process. They are then also domed with a quality resin and cured in an oven before being applied to the desired award (if applicable).
What's the difference between nickel plated and silver?
A nickel-plated trophy doesn't tarnish as silver trophy cups do, they are less susceptible to exposure to the air which can cause dullness and discolouration which therefore means they require less cleaning and maintenance. Whereas silver trophy cups can tarnish over time and can become discoloured if the correct maintenance isn't followed. With silver trophy cups, you should not handle these with your bare hands and only a very soft material glove could be used when handling these. The silver trophy cups should be stored in a glass cabinet.

Pricing and Payment

How do I pay by via purchase order?
If you would like to place your order by purchase order, email this to us at enquiries@trophystore.co.uk. We will place your order for you and send an invoice. If you are a government funded authority, we may be able to set you up under our public sector account. Please contact us for further information.
Can I pay by cheque?
Yes you can. Please add the items you would like to order to your basket and enter your delivery information. Before you reach the payment form in the checkout stage, contact us and we can send an invoice to your email which will contain the details to send a cheque to.
What payment options do you accept?
You can find more information on the payment options we accept on our Payment Methods page.
Do you have discounts for bulk ordering?
We keep the cost of our trophies, medals and awards competitive on our website, so therefore don't offer discounts for bulk ordering. However, please contact our Customer Support Team and we'll see what we can do in terms of reducing the price based on the order value.
Do your prices include V.A.T?
V.A.T is added to all the prices on our website. What you see is what you pay.

Engraving

How much does engraving cost?
Engraving costs can vary. In most cases, our engraving is FREE under 10 characters for trophies, £1 for up to 50 characters. Engraving is £1 per medal and side shield, £5 per centre shield engraving, £10 for cup body and/or plinth band engraving, finally £17.50 for glass engraving.
Does engraving increase the processing timescales of my order?
In all honesty, no. We treat all orders the same, so our specialist engravers and machines are working around the clock every day to ensure all orders, engraved or not, are dispatched within our processing timescales advertised on our website.
Can I have more characters engraved that what the website allows?
We wouldn't want your engraving to look small or cramped by allowing unnecessary characters, so the maximum character limits we set are to avoid this. We would advise shortening down your characters where possible, such as abbreviating terms. Eg. 2021-2022 > 21/22, Under 9's Girls > U9 Girls. Still don't fit? Feel free to contact us with your requirements and we'll see what we can do!
Can I engrave on the front of a medal?
Unfortunately not, all our medals that allow for engraving, only allow engraving on reverse.
Can I have my engraving in a different language?
This may be possible. Please contact us and we'll be able to advise if we can or cannot engrave in your language!
I have lots of different engraving for a large order, is there any way to supply this?
Yes, sure! If you do have a large order with multiple engravings and you don't want to process this online, please download our Engraving Spreadsheet and email this to us!
Do you do annual engraving?
Yes, just add in the order notes that annual engraving is required and we will leave space for future winners or engraving to be added at a later date.
With my perpetual shield/trophy, can I post this back to you to engrave annually?
Unfortunately, this is not a service we offer. When placing your order, we will engrave all side shields as requested, the annual side shields not currently known will be left blank. We advise this is taken to a local Timpson's or trusted engraving specialist/shop to get your perpetual shield/trophy engraved annually.

Of course. Please supply the address you'd like your order to be delivered to during the checkout process.

We would like to apologise to all our valued EU customers. This is only a temporary move. We are working hard to find a solution and we are looking forward to serving you again very soon.
My order has been delivered to a click and collect shop, what do I do?

Can I return or exchange my order after I've received it?
If you are not totally satisfied with any products that have not been engraved or customised, you can return them within 14 working days, starting from the date after the day of delivery. It is your responsibility to return purchases in pristine condition within original boxes and packaging.

The cost of returning goods to us shall be borne by you. We recommend that you obtain proof of postage and return via a reputable courier or Royal Mail Recorded Delivery.

Please ensure that the goods are suitably package to prevent damage in transit. We reserve the right to deduct the cost of replacing these items from any refund when goods are returned to us damaged (if we are not notified beforehand).

Your right to return or cancel goods to us does not apply to any items that have been engraved or customised specifically for you.
I can't read my engraving plate text?
The process used to engrave plates is called rotary engraving with a diamond cutting tip which produces a groove (or scratch) at a specific depth. People sometimes expect engraving to be like printing - very visible when in reality no colour is used to fill in the letters. Engraving is more subtle in appearance as light reflects differently off of engraved surfaces. Due to the highly reflective nature of silver and gold plates, there is less contrast and therefore it can sometimes be harder to read depending on the lighting conditions.
How can I leave a review on my order?
You will receive a 'Leave A Review' email once your order has been completed and delivered. Please wait for a few days for this email. There will also be a little thank you from us for doing so!
Do you offer annual or repeat engraving?
Unfortunately, we do not offer annual engraving. We are happy to engrave multiple years on side shields and additional plates on any order. However, we do not accept orders back to engrave annually. We advise our customers to take their awards to a local trusted engraving shop, such as Timpsons.
