Trophies have been a longtime classic for individual, team, or annual recognition pieces for many years.

We offer a huge selection of different types, sizes, prices, and styles.

Having an annual trophy cup can give your students something to strive for when they play, to get their name put on a trophy that's going to be displayed for decades. They can go back to the school years later and show their friends or their kids that special moment in their lives.

Some of the varieties of trophies we carry are:

  • Column design
  • Cups
  • Annuals
  • Sport or Academic Specific Resins
  • Kids Designs

Custom Designs: If you have a piece of memorabilia that demonstrates your sport or school we can mount it to a base to make a single or annual trophy. We've made some very unique designs with things customers have brought in, like jet engine parts, rubber boots, a pager. These may seem very random to you and me, but they're completely unique and meaningful designs to the people that it matters!

Trophy's can have a variety of header and update plate styles, including:

  • Laser Engraved (Black plates with gold or silver text)
  • Full Colour Sublimation (Very versatile with advanced graphic capabilities, uses white, gold, silver, or bronze aluminum plate)
  • Traditional Mechanical Engraving (Mostly used for updates on annuals).
  • Shield Shaped Plates with Traditional Engraving or Sublimated Information

If you're not exactly sure what will fit with your event or school we'll help you pick something out and customize it with plates to recognize your winners.

Prices are based on the trophy, plates, and decoration method used. Discounts may be available for large quantities.

 Medals -

medals-banner1.jpg

We specialize in two different types of medals, Stock, and Custom. While most of our customers from schools tend to go with the more budget minded stock medals, we do supply some private schools with full custom designs that help their school to really stand out with a really high-value, unique award.

Stock Medals: There are a variety of styles that all come in 3 different finishes, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Some of the materials have an antique matte finish, while some show off a superb shine.

For each design there are different variations depending on what it's recognizing. Many academic medals come with a "Lamp of Knowledge"  or "Honour Roll" image, or the universal designs also work well for more unusual awards. If the medal is for a specific sport or subject, we have all of the major sports, and some common school subjects like, science medals, math, music, or perfect attendance medals.

Neck ribbons for stock medals come in many different colours, and colour combinations. For all available colour combinations visit any one of our medals pages.

Insert Disc Medals: Some of our stock medals feature a blank front in which a full-colour sublimated disc can be placed. The disc material can be either white, gold, silver, or bronze, and the design is completely up to you. These work well for unique sports and events, or if you would like to incorporate your school crest, but don't want to go up to a full custom medal.

Custom Medals: Coming up with the design is the fun part of these ones! You can pick the medal material and size you would like, and give us an idea of the look. Then we can produce a digital version with a design concept for you to approve.

We can also incorporate a full custom neck ribbon to go along with your medal. These can be digital full-colour designs, or simply a foil print on ribbon-like materials (Similar to sports day ribbons).

Custom medals and ribbons do require a minimum quantity purchased that depends on the size and material, please inquire for specifics.

Engraving your medals: For most stock or custom medals we also have the option of engraving directly on the back, or putting an engraved plate that matches the colour on the back. For most schools and sports teams we will even individualize each medal with a team name, player name, or jersey number.

 Team Gear -

Get A Quote  

We carry everything from universal Jersey's for your gym and small teams to fully customized track suits and bags.

Some of our most popular items for teams are our track jackets. We have a lot of light weight, water resistant, performance jackets with a modern or classic styling. Some of our options can come with matching pants.

NEW PRODUCTS: Waterproof Bags - These have been a hit with many soccer teams, and yours can benefit too! For those rainy days when your bag is sitting outside for a couple of hours during practice or a game having a waterproof bag can be a life saver. They're also great for putting your wet clothes in and not getting your vehicle or house dirty because the water doesn't soak through!

Budget Minded?

Some teams go with a more budget friendly option of cotton shirts with a heat pressed logo, player name or nickname, and number on them. These can be great for volleyball teams, track and field, or basketball as a warm up shirt if you're not interested in a whole track suit.

Team Pride

If you want items that your team can wear outside of regular events, hats and toques can be a perfect item. When you're part of a winning team in your region, having a hat to wear on a regular day is a great symbol of that accomplishment. These are also very highly sought after items for supporters of your team as well! Let your whole school join in on the fun.

It might sound like we have a lot of options, so leave it up to the experts. Let us know what you have in mind and we'll make suggestions to fit your team, school, and budget.
