We offer a range of different plaque types, sizes and materials as well as manufacturing methods that allow you to choose according to your requirements and budget.

What’s more is that our workshops are run by some of Australia’s most talented trophy designers and makers who will ensure that they do everything that they can to bring your vision to life. Our custom plaque design is bespoke, high-end and fit for any kind of occasion.

Choosing the Right Plaque

There is a vast array of designs, materials and sizes when it comes to choosing a plaque and that can make the process a little intimidating. However, at Design Awards, our skilled designers will be able to give you the best advice on the kind of plaque that is going to be most suited to your needs.

Here are some of their tips on choosing the right custom plaque design for your occasion:

•    Size is essential: When choosing a plaque it’s imperative that you get something that is suitable for the occasion. For example, if you are having corporate awards for your staff members then something sleek and small might be best, as this allows them to place it on their desk or shelf where they can proudly display it. On the other hand, a plaque for a building or other big occasion would be dwarfed if it was too small, so make sure you get something big enough to stand out.

•    Quality over quantity: It’s always tempting to come in below budget and get something that will save money, but we believe it’s always better to go with high-quality products rather than cheap ones. You know that high-quality plaques will last a long time and won’t rust or break in just a few years time.

•    Styles: First, you need to consider the type of event you are having – is it sports awards, corporate awards or event TV awards? The occasion is going to determine the style of your custom plaque, and it’s best to chat with our designers to find out what will be best suited to your needs.

•    Material: At Design Awards, we have a number of different materials for our plaques, and what will be best for you will depend on your event or occasion. We have acrylic, metal, crystal, sustainable material and many others to choose from.

These are just some of the things you should consider when choosing the perfect plaque for your event.
