Prestigious competitions need prizes worth fighting for. The larger the prize, the higher the stakes; the higher the stakes, the more rewarding the victory.

Every level of competition, from the Olympics to regional races, uses trophies and awards to motivate talented competitors to participate.

Custom Options

Trophies can be customized in a number of ways. Our craftsmen can fulfill almost any custom order, but many unique customizations can be prohibitively expensive. Listed below are some of those options, so you can make your trophy a unique prize for any occasion.

Trophy Bases

Meandros Trophy Loving Cup with Base. Sterling silver or pewter. Customize yours today

Bases are removable and attach to a threaded mounting bar on the cup.

Either a wood or metal base can be added to any trophy to make it larger and more conspicuous. Wood bases come with an engraved plaque.

We offer both full-metal and wood bases. Wooden bases come with an engravable plaque in either silver or pewter.

Diamond Engraving

All trophies can be engraved to dedicate the award to its recipient. To engrave, we use a diamond tipped etching stylus. Unlike laser engraving, this gives inscriptions an appearance of hand engraving.

Engraving is etched with a diamond-tipped stylus to give a look similar to hand engraving in contrast with laser engraving.

Awards can be returned and inscribed after the winner is known.

Pewter vs. Sterling Silver Trophies

Sterling is more expensive and desirable, but large sterling silver trophies can be prohibitively expensive.

Our workers have experience crafting both sterling and pewter trophies in every size and style.

Pewter Trophies

For a bold statement, there’s nothing that compares to a champion holding a massive victory cup aloft, but unless you’re making the Stanley Cup, that size in sterling silver may be prohibitively expensive. Bright-polished pewter displays a similar brilliance as sterling silver, at a fraction of the cost. Pewter holds its shine remarkably well in a display case, without maintenance.

Sterling Silver Trophies

Many events do not warrant an ostentatious statement. For an elegant, tasteful prize with a timeless value, sterling silver is the medium of choice for the most prestigious trophies. Smaller, more manageable sterling trophies are often more desirable than larger pewter options.

Mixed

For multiple prizes at a single competition, sterling silver can make the grand prize, while lesser prizes are done in pewter. In this case, it is not enough for the trophy to be more valuable; it needs to look the part too. A sterling silver trophy cup with pewter award trays as runner-up prizes can really differentiate the winner and drive fierce competition for first place.

Exclusive Rights

For completely unique trophies we offer the option of exclusive rights. We will produce your design for you and nobody else.

In order to qualify for exclusive rights, the trophy design must be original, either designed by us or with the rights owned by you.

  1. Could I get a catalog with prices. I order awards for our 3 week Pin Oak Charity Horse Show in Katy, Texas and have roughly 35 special classes that I need trophies for. I would want the horse show logo and the class name engraved on the trophy. Please call me at 713-417-****.
    Thanks so much,

    1. Thank you to the Oldani family and the super-skilled artisans at Sterling and Pewter. The trophy that they custom made for our golf tournament is beautiful. Hand crafted in pewter, it is literally one of the best looking trophies I have ever seen. Peter Oldani and his team were meticulous in every detail. The cup shape, custom rim, handles, engraving, and base selection are superb. And, the price was very fair. I highly recommend Sterling and Pewter to anyone wanting a beautiful trophy or silver product; including professional, amateur, or club championships. You and your competitors will not be disappointed. Thank you Peter and everyone at Sterling and Pewter. Look forward to doing business again soon. Brig Jones, Israel Cup
