Trophies are symbols of achievement and recognition. If you don't like the choices offered to you, you can always order online. If it is just a simple trophy you want to make for children, you can make one on your own.
Custom trophies can be easily made once you know what type of award you want. You can make different types for whatever sport you want. It can be about baseball, soccer, hunting or even something showing the love for boats and motorcycles. It can be cheap yet lasting. You just need to be creative to make good and unique trophies and awards. Here's a simple way to make one.
- Get hold of a wooden base; you can paint it any color you want but of course black is better. Black gives that seriousness and sincerity to an award.
- Get a Thermacol sheet and grab some papers. You can buy a Thermacol sheet at any bookstore near you. A blank sheet of nice paper would do or you can get a shiny one.
- Draw an image that you want the trophy to show, for example draw a basketball. Make sure that you can make a good figure, otherwise you will just make a below standard award. Have someone with an artistic skill make it for you.
- Glue the Thermacol on a piece of paper. Keep in mind that it can be a bit messy so you have to be careful. Let it dry out a bit, then you can paint over it as you like.
- Attach it to a wooden or a Thermacol base.
- Attach paper to the base to write the name of the awardee.
