Some of the most interesting parts of what we do are the most secret. Here we expose all or nothing – tongue in cheek.
Q: How much does it cost to make a National Emmy® Statuette?
A: National Emmys®, cost $1 million to “make”, because they are made of a solid 12kt gold core, with a pure 18kt gold exterior, except for the vertical structure of the base which would not be strong enough to be made out of gold and instead is stamped steel gold plated. Specially selected FedEx executives actually make the pickups and deliveries personally, handcuffed to spy-style suitcases, with a retinue of armed guards, provided by each state into which the Emmy® is being sent.READ MORE
If the stars and the moon align, a trophy can be made with zinc die casting – widely acknowledged to be the best and highest quality process for making awards. In many cases, the stars and moon could be taken to mean quantity and budget, but the design plays a factor as well.
The reasons why pressurized zinc die casting is not used more frequently are the same reasons why it is the best: It is extremely difficult, time consuming, expensive and unwieldy. Only a very few manufacturers of awards offer this process at all. Society Awards is the only manufacturer who has mastered it – we are experts at this most important of techniques to make high-quality, multiple quantity, limited edition works of art.
We love to drink champagne for celebrations and associate it with exclusivity and the high life – Why? When did that start?
Over a thousand years ago. Royals bearing the name and title of Champagne served with Charlemagne, journeyed on the Crusades, and for a time Champagne, France was a site for the crowning of kings.
Society Awards now communicates the story, elegance, and luxury of the brand that we strive to convey in our relationships. Over the past year, Society Awards design arm and sister company, Mode Design Group, has been working closely with Digital Creative Director Ming Lam to build a completely new web experience for the user. From the custom photo shoots to each typography selection, they were able to design a site that embodies the luxury and mystique of the Society Awards brand across all facets.READ MORE

Since we like to be detailed and authoritative in response to questions, this usually produces a long, thought-out response. To simplify the question and answer for ourselves and our clients, my sales staff has asked me to write this blog post on the subject.READ MORE
