Why buy Awards Trophies and Plaques from EFX ?
We are a British company specialising in the design and manufacture of contemporary awards and trophies, designed and made at our state-of-the-art studio and manufacturing works in the Cotswolds. We work with both small and large customers across all market sectors - many are prestigious, household names, and each one receives our trademark, friendly service, fresh and innovative design, outstanding quality, and prompt delivery.
Our customers commission bespoke designs or choose from our excellent value, off-the-shelf ranges in glass or crystal, aluminium, pewter, acrylic and stainless steel. Stunning and unique effects are then created using a variety of surface applications including anodising, powder coating, printing, lamination and polydome, with personalised engraving completing the service.
Many of our clients have become old friends, returning regularly with new commissions, and we were named the Best Rural Family Business 2011 in the Awards initiative for family businesses and their leaders, so we must be doing something right!
Specialists in unique designs
Designing and manufacturing high quality, bespoke awards is our forté at Special EFX. We turn the vision of our clients into three dimensional reality, and for those looking for something unique and special, we offer a myriad of creative ideas from which to choose. In addition, we provide a wide selection of off-the-shelf trophies and plaques, which can be personalised and branded to suit the occasion. If you are looking for inspiration, then take a look at our website for some recent examples of our work and a host of design ideas.
Getting the design right for a bespoke award is crucial, if it is to make a positive and lasting impression at an event; it also needs to reflect the core values of a business, brand or organisation. A company or brand logo can be interpreted on employee awards in a number of ways, including 3D crystal engraving, cast in aluminium, or printed in high definition and encased in an acrylic polydome. Likewise, the essence of a themed event, such as a golf tournament or music competition can be simply and elegantly reflected in the design of your trophy.
Bespoke award trophies can take many forms, from iconic sculptures cast in aluminium or crystal, to gold trophies and medals, from acrylic corporate trophies, to those made for the environmentally conscious in colourful, recycled plastics. In order to ensure maximum impact of such creative awards, we offer a wide selection of substantial and elegant bases and mounts, made from complementing materials including oak, polished metal and marble, and can supply all our unique awards and bespoke trophies and shields in prestigious presentation boxes if required.
New ideas and materials
Our portfolio of awards is constantly changing, as we develop new techniques to meet the requirements and budgets of our clients. Acrylic has been a recent development, which not only facilitates contemporary designs with vibrant colours and high quality images for wall plaques and free-standing awards, but also offers attractive price points. Likewise, working in new materials such as plastics from recycled bottles and sourcing sustainable wood has come about in recent years, as organisations have requested trophies, which will endorse their green values.
Designed and made in the United Kingdom
EFX both design and manufacture, and this is how we ensure outstanding quality and can offer a personal and flexible service. We are a small and friendly team, which works from our manufacturing site in Warwickshire; this means that at any time we know exactly the stage your enquiry or order has reached. Once we have an agreed design brief, our studio will come up with a stunning portfolio of ideas for your consideration, which are then fine-tuned to your requirements. If specifically requested, pre-production samples can then be made or a 3D visual developed. Once manufactured, each award or trophy is individually engraved at our works, using the latest laser techniques, and then polished and carefully packed for timely delivery.
Aim for the best
Often clients report back to us that recipients are stunned at just how special their award looks and feels… and then we know we have got it right.
