Are silver awards really silver?

Not everyone looking for a silver trophy wants to use actual silver. In many cases, people are looking for a silver colour finish, rather than the metal itself.

A big reason that many people avoid using silver itself is because it tarnishes so easily. Silver requires a lot of cleaning and upkeep as well as being more expensive, whereas a metal like nickel gives you that same silvery finish but is more affordable and doesn’t tarnish so quickly.

It’s also very rare for a trophy to be created in solid silver. In fact almost all metal trophies use a base of aluminium, which is then nickel plated to get the desired finish.

Another alternative is to use pewter, which has a similar finish to silver and to nickel plate, and is often lighter and more malleable than most metals.

Finishes for your silver trophy

Silver trophies come in a range of different finishes to create the perfect style for your unique award, including:

Brushed nickel plate

Polished nickel plate

Silver trophy design

Designing a custom silver award gives you a huge range of options and opportunities - particularly if you’re using an aluminium base with nickel plating.

Aluminium is incredibly versatile, and can be turned, cast or even waterjet-cut, making it suitable for almost any shape you can think of.

Another really popular design style for silver trophies is to combine the metal with another material, such as acrylic or wood. Using materials with contrasting finishes in the same trophy can create truly unique and quirky finishes, and bring another layer of depth to your design.

Are silver trophies sustainable?

You may not realise that you can get a sustainable silver award, but this is really only possible if you’re choosing a nickel plated award.

That’s because the main body of your trophy will be created in aluminium, which can be sustainable. In fact at EFX we use 79% recycled aluminium for our trophies, and we use sustainable manufacturing processes and packaging too.

Personalised silver awards

A silver finish can be the perfect touch to complete any award design, whether it’s a high shine polish or a textured brushed silver finish.

Silver trophies are incredibly versatile, meaning that your design can be created in an almost limitless range of shapes and designs. So whether you’re taking inspiration from your logo, want an alpha-numerical award or something more abstract, a silver award could be perfect for you.

Packaging and delivery of silver awards

At EFX we aim to keep our environmental impact as low as possible. So we use recycled and sustainable packaging for all our awards and trophies, keeping them and the planet safe at the same time!

Our sustainable packaging includes paper tape, biodegradable packing materials and recycled bubble wrap too.

We gave EFX a brief to come up with a slick, modern design worthy of a glamorous awards show of this kind and they exceeded our expectations in terms of design, manufacturing and delivery. The design feels light years away from where we were and looked fantastic on stage with the winners.
