Bespoke Wooden Trophies
Event organisers are moving away from buying off the shelf, plastic awards for their recipients. Many now want trophies which better reflect their own brand and values; are made from more sustainable materials which are durable, beautiful and cost effective.
At Cut By Beam we make a lot of trophies for sporting events, business award ceremonies and one-off commemorative pieces. Whilst we can also etch on to metal, glass and recycled plastic (or a combination of more than one material) most customers ask us to make them from wood.
There are many advantages to wooden trophies.
Durability: Wood is a strong and durable material that can withstand the test of time. Wooden trophies can last for many years without showing signs of wear and tear.
Natural beauty: Wood has a natural beauty that can be enhanced with the right finish. Wooden trophies can be polished to a high shine or left with a natural finish, depending on the desired look.
Personalisation: Wood can be easily engraved or stamped with text or designs, making it a great material for personalizing trophies.
Cost-effective: Wood is a relatively inexpensive material, making it a cost-effective option for sports trophies.
Eco-friendly: Wood is a renewable resource and can be sourced sustainably, making it a more environmentally friendly option compared to other materials such as plastic.
We offer a range of simple trophies in our webshop here. These designs are super cost effective. All you need do is give us your designs to etch on the front of them and we will do the rest.
But if you want something more bespoke, we can help you come up with any size, shape or range that you have in mind. e.g. differently sized 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards, with or without a painted background, cut through sections, layered with another material such as recycled acrylic. Use our Contact form to tell us what you have in mind.
This trophy (below) was made for the Tour of Britain Cornwall leg back in 2021. You can read more about this one-off creation in our news post here.
And another bespoke design for a trophy is shown below - this time for a Cornish Shrimper sailing event and made from different wood types.
