Where can I have my trophy engraving?
There can be several areas on your trophy or award that may be suitable for engraving. These should be clearly identified in the engraving selection process for each product you have chosen to purchase. If anything is unclear then please call us on 0845 2 30 60 50 so that we can assist you.
Choice of font styles
The engraving technician will normally select an appropriate font for your trophies engraving but you can specify your font preference and submit your entire layout too if you wish, just follow the instructions for each product. Below is an example of 7 common text styles but there is no restriction with TrophiesandMedals.com unlike some lesser trophy shops and websites (however we may have to substitute with a similar font depending on the machine doing the engraving e.g. english script may be replaced with 'Vanessa').
Carefully enter the text you would like engraved on your trophy, almost every trophy gives you the opportunity to layout your engraving exactly as you wish, line by line. You will see from the Award's description that often there is more than one area that can be engraved upon. If there is, make sure you enter your text in the appropriate area. If you leave an "Engraving Text" area empty no engraving will appear in that area. Please check the engraving text for accuracy though we will correct any obvious errors and contact you if we are at all unsure.
Please note that we will not usually PROOF text only on Glass. So if you want a proof please ask in writing/email/with your web order.
In addition to text if you require your individual company or club logo to be engraved on your trophies and awards, this presents no problem. Simple follow the instructions for uploading your logo or email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do the rest. The ideal format to avoid any re-draw costs is a pure Black & White (no greyscale) Vectorised EPS file saved for Illustrator CS2 or earlier (PC format) with any text saved to curves. If it sounds daunting don't worry we can convert your artwork in other formats for a one off charge of £15 to £30 depending on complexity.
On items where you may have particular requirements regarding the size and position of your engraving, these should be uploaded, where prompted, on a Word (or similar) document. If no instructions are given the engraving layout will be at the discretion of our skilled and experienced engravers. PROOFS will only ordinarily be sent where you have a LOGO and TEXT requirement on GLASS. So if you want a proof please ask in writing/email/with your web order.
