These awards are a popular choice in today’s market due to their durability and weight. They are made from oil-based resins which are then hand painted to add finer details and allowing for subtle texture differences to be captured. Resin has become one of the most popular choices as it is perhaps the most child-friendly trophy material and least likely to break or cause abrasion to human skin. However, we would still recommend handling your resin award with care!
Our plastic awards are made from a polymeric material that has the capability to be moulded or shaped; this can be achieved through the application of heat and pressure to the material. Most of the components, including the risers and figurines, are created using injection moulding, which is where liquid plastic fills the dies and forms the various trophy components. The moulded plastic can also be coloured to resemble gold, silver, or brass; if the trophy has a metallic finish, this is achieved by using a hot-stamp metallic foil which is applied to the figurine.
Heavyweight Composite
Our heavyweight ranges are a new more sustainable alternative to resin. Not only this but pound for pound do they offer much greater value for money as these are manufactured from a tougher, heavy composite material, making it sturdier against breakages as well as wear and tear.


All of our medals are made from metal, most medals are made from either iron or zamac (which is a mixed metal alloy of zinc, aluminium, magnesium, and traces of copper). Iron medals are stamped and zamac medals are die cast.
Medal Ribbons
Our medal ribbons are made from polyester and come attached with a metal hook to combine to your medal, making them the perfect addition to your medal so they can be worn with pride!

Glass Awards

Glass awards are our more sleek and sophisticated range, where we can personalise these with your own artwork. Glass is formed primarily from sand particles heated at extremely high temperatures. Amidst this sand-firing process, the mixture changes into a mouldable form which creates its unique and customizable final award shape. Glass awards can vary in weight, style, shape, and size however these details will be detailed on the award page.
Jade Glass
Jade glass is an opaque green glass which is intended to look like jade. They have characteristic shades of green throughout the glass. Similarly, to the glass awards, these vary in size, weight, and style to meet every requirement.
Optical Crystal
Optical Crystal is translucent and colourless and is much clearer than lead crystal. It is known for its durability, not scratching or chipping easily. It is valued for its transparency, purity, and hardness compared to other types of glass. As the crystal’s structure is much denser than other glass, this will have a much higher weight compared to awards of a similar size and style. At first glance crystal and glass seem to be two of the same, however, when light travels through the crystal it diffracts the light, creating a glittery, shimmery effect.
An acrylic award is an alternative to the traditional glass or crystal trophies, as to touch it feels like plastic. They are manufactured by pouring acrylic casting resin into a mould and being moulded into a variety of forms. Acrylic is much more durable than glass and although acrylic awards may be more impact-resistant, when it comes to general wear and tear, they are much more susceptible to scratches.

Presentation Cups

Nickel Plated
Nickel plating involves adding a thin layer of nickel onto a metal object for decorative purposes or to provide wear and corrosion resistance. A nickel-plated trophy doesn’t tarnish as they are less susceptible to exposure to the air, which can cause dullness and discolouration. This therefore means they require less cleaning and maintenance. These are a great alternative to the silver plated awards, cheaper too!
Silver Plated
Our silver plated awards are handmade. They are copper based to make it more durable, however if there is a handle or stem this is brass, and then dipped into silver. These can tarnish over time and can become discoloured if the correct maintenance isn’t followed.
Gold Plated
Our gold plated awards are handmade, and coated in a glossy gold plating.

Other Awards

Wooden Plaques
Wood is an extremely durable material and has always been a popular choice when creating awards, due to its flexibility in texture and finish to accommodate all kinds of events. The material is also a much more sustainable, and eco-friendly option, helping to promote a greener lifestyle perfectly
Crystal Awards
Crystal awards, although look like glass, have a lead content that makes crystal softer and able to be moulded into any desired shape or design. The ease in which the material can be carved allows the trophy maker to create a highly attractive and meticulously crafted award. Crystal has the ability to reflect light, and some say the quality and elegance crystal awards offer cannot be replicated in other materials. At first glance crystal and glass seem to be two of the same, however, when light travels through the crystal it diffracts the light, creating a glittery, shimmery effect.
Rosettes are made from coloured satin ribbon with a large circular decoration, which is given as a prize in a competition, our rosettes include a 2” centre disc which can also be personalised to include a logo or image of choice.
Lindisfarne Crystal Awards
These awards are made from lead free crystal which is essentially fine glass without the lead content. On this occasion, lead is substituted with another ingredient, for instance, zinc, barium, and potassium to allow the piece to be heavy, transparent, and possible to be hand cut or engraved.
Bamboo Eco Awards
Bamboo is a renewable and versatile material known for its strength and durability. It is prized for its elegant and natural appearance, making it suitable for various applications. As an eco-friendly option, bamboo's rapid growth and sustainability have made it a popular choice for sustainable construction and design, offering both aesthetic appeal and environmental responsibility.


Acrylic Domed Centre Discs
The centres we produce are created in-house using a high-quality printing process. They are printed onto vinyl, cut to shape, and domed with a quality resin before finally being cured in an oven before being applied to the awards.
Aluminium Centre Discs
Our metal centre discs come in gold, silver or bronze and are coated aluminium with a metallic detail embossed into them, available in a range of designs, suitable for all award occasions.
Engraving Plates
Our engraving plates are made from a thin aluminium metal and are cut to the desired shape, they have a self-adhesive backing allowing them to be applied to any award. 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.
Our marble bases are natural products created from crushed fragments of marble and then reconstituted under pressure to form a strong base for the statuette to sit upon. These bases can have small blemishes, anomalies, and or fracture lines showing both within and on the marble surface, this is normal and some of the characteristics of a natural product.
Bakelite is the world’s first synthetic plastic. It is a hard, infusible, and chemically resistant plastic, that can be moulded quickly, will retain its shape, and is resistant to heat and scratches. This is typically used for the bases of trophy cups.


Pewter Tankards & Flasks
Pewterware is a tin-based alloy, where a team of hands craftsmen and skilled hands of a pewter smith handmake items. The softness of this alloy means that owners need to take some care with their pieces. No two pieces of pewter are identical. Minor imperfections show the mark of each craftsman reflecting the art and beauty of all individually made pieces.
Leatherette Gifts
Leatherette is a synthetic material designed specifically to mimic leather; it is made from a plastic base and is then treated with wax, dye, or polyurethane to create the colour and texture. The biggest difference between the two is that real leather is truly unique, as no two hides are the same.
