We are specialists in bespoke elite sporting trophies, awards and medal programs. We undertake restoration work for our clients trophies all year round. Iconic elite sporting trophies are handled more frequently now than ever before, visiting schools and shopping centres, attending press conferences and matchdays. This amount of repair work can take a significant toll on the silverware, and can be costly. So, we often recommend making a replica of your trophy to protect the original from much of the potential damage.
