Our Services

Gravesham Trophy Centre and The Crystal Glass Engraver, offer a vast number of Services which you may not expect from a 'Trophy Centre'.  We are somewhat more than just suppliers and engravers of trophies!

Two common questions we receive are about Artwork and Trophy 'Centres' (the discs often supplied with metal & resin trophies and our medals.)  Here are links to pages, explaining all about Artwork and Centres:

Engraved Brass Plaques 

We supply Engraved Brass Plaques, in almost any size you desire.  From standard, inexpensive brass plaques, to high quality brass plate and solid brass, with countersunk holes and finished edges.

We also supply Plaques in many other finishes, including Chrome, silver Plate, gold Plate and Black Enamel.

Below, you will see four different 'Neck Plates' we engraved for a customer for his guitar.  A bespoke service which we are pleased to offer to any customer in the UK.

Laminated Plastic Signs & Plaques

Multi layer plastic signs and plaques, each layer being a different colour.  When engraving, we cut through the surface layer, to reveal the colour beneath that - or even down to a third colour.

The finish is such that the surface of the sign or plaque is a single colour, while the engraving is revealed as a different colour.

Laminated Plastic Signs & Plaques can be drilled and countersunk, to make them able to be mounted on a wall or wood background.  Alternatively, they can have double-sided tape applied, for 'instant' application.  The former method allows for outside use, but we only recommend tape fixing for indoor use.

Engraving for Electrical Contractor

We offer to engrave circuit boards, sockets and panels for Electrical Contractors.  Our Engraving Service for Electrical Contractors is completed swiftly and to specification.

We are happy to accept work from Electrical Contractors anywhere in the UK.  Simply ask your wholesaler to deliver direct to us and send us your drawings and engraving details.

We use the services of Parcel Force for deliveries and can send by 24 hour delivery to most UK addresses, the few others are a 48 hour service.

Engraving for Architects

We are adept at working to Architects drawings and reading off specifications for engraving requirements.

We can supply most forms of signage, including our own glass Wall Plaques which have a wood effect backing.  Mounted with spacers and mirror screws, they look very smart when engraved.

As you will see from above, we also offer a variety of different substrates for plaques and can also supply wood, deep engraved.

Door Signs and Building Plaques are also available.  For unveiling plaques, we also offer the hire of curtains and pole for the unveiling ceremony.

We welcome all engraving work for Architects and will be delighted to supply a quotation for any Architect's engraving work, anywhere in UK.

Topping Out Plaques

A 'topping-out' plaque is sometimes fitted to the highest point of a building after completion and opening by a celebrity.

At other times, we have supplied engraved silver trowels (or a spade with a plaque) to present to the celebrity.

We can supply these plaques, mounted on wood, for fixing to most surfaces.  Delivery to any UK address is achieved via our carriers

Engraving Services

We engrave any design and text into glass, crystal, wood, metal, nickel, pewter, brass or plastic.  Corporate Logos and Club Crests, along with a library of different designs to commemorate most personal, sporting and annual occurrences can be engraved in fantastic detail.

Engraving of 'Labels' and Signs can incorporate cutting out to accept instruments, sockets and other protrusions.  All images required for such signage are held by us and can be provided without fuss, for all your engraving requirements.

Perpetual Awards (those annual awards which are presented, then returned) can be engraved on an ongoing basis.  We offer many different text styles, so can match what has gone before and will keep your Perpetual Awards looking just right.

Restoring Trophies

A speciality we are proud to present to you is the restoring of old trophies.  Broken, handles missing, old engraving to be removed, you name it and we can probably accomplish it, providing you with 'as new' trophies and saving on cost.

We can remove old bent handles and replace with new.  Infill engraving, polish and re-engrave - you will not see the difference.

After restoring the trophy, we can add  the engraving of a club crest or corporate logo, along with commemorative text.  Stands, with silver bands to go around (also engraved) can be added, completely transforming an old silver cup.

Memorial Plaques

The passing of a loved one is often marked by commemorating their life by the donation of a bench to a local park or beauty spot frequented by that person.  The bench requires a plaque which will not rust and we supply brass for such a task, along with brass screws.

 

We are also please to be able to supply a wood stake and plaque to mark a person's passing at a crematorium - a popular way to record the life of a loved one.

Tags, Disks & Gifts

Dog Tags and Pet Disks are available, complete with engraving, for your pet.  High quality, weather resistant materials are used, for longevity.
