How to Make a Custom Award

It starts with a call. New clients find us when they are in the market for a custom award. Society Awards designs and crafts the world’s prestigious and televised awards. Those awards have great public awareness, but we create awards for any and every industry. Our credentials alone push us to the top of search engine results.

Our customers have little to no awards knowledge. That would be a challenge to almost anyone, but it’s actually to our benefit. We are experts in the process and our clients trust us to deliver with as little effort on their part as they wish. Although some clients choose to be more involved. Many people will call in and say they want their own brand’s version of the Emmy. What they want is to have something iconic for their own brand. It’s our job to determine the underlying desires of the client. We want the resulting trophy to be something they didn’t realize could fit their brand so well. Our concierge staff delves deep during initial design calls. Once we have formal agreement to work together, the design process can begin.

Much of the process is proprietary, but it’s a matter of understanding the many facets of what a client wants. This includes a lot that they might not themselves be aware. We guide that information gathering through a tight, ordered series of steps. The setting, industry and recipients all factor into the perfect custom award. If you want a trophy for a televised awards show, that’s going to be one process. If you need corporate awards or creative competition trophies we have different processes. Knowing how to incorporate the nuanced factors to make the ideal award is at the heart of Society Awards. Our proprietary, unmatched expertise is our unique edge. It is a creative business, but productive creativity requires rigid structure. Our clients are popular televised programs, Fortune 500 companies and renowned artists. We don’t expect them to be experts in trophy design. They want the best awards and they want them without drama.

It comes down to two key benefits of Society Awards. First, we maintain an incredible standard of service. Customers feel confident in the process. Second, there is confidence in the product. Our industry-leading quality and manufacturing standards leave every customer and honoree delighted. That is the experience that every customer can expect from Society Awards.
