You’re arranging an event. The branding is perfect, the venue is booked, invitations are sent. You’ve got three weeks left to finalise the details, it’s a recipe for success… or is it?


Here are four reasons you should be thinking about your bespoke awards right now.


1. Design

Whether you come directly to us, or you’re a party representing a client, the design process is the exciting first step to your award becoming a fully realised creation. It’s vital to us that we craft something perfect for you, and often the first design is not the last. Our designers have years of experience in designing awards that are exactly what you’d envisioned.


If you’ve got no idea, don’t worry. They’re experts in utilising anything from event branding to vague ideas about shape or size to design a superb award. The sooner you come to us with your ideas, the sooner we can bring them to life.



A well-designed award won’t just fit the brief – it’ll look good, feel good, and utilise all our in-house facilities to truly make the most of our bespoke service.


2. Details

At Gaudio, we know all the ins and outs of your award, and our assembly team know you just can’t rush the finishing touches.

Our production team have a keen eye for detail. From the first design to the final polish, we know exactly what to look out for to make sure your award is perfect. Checking names, dates, titles, colour matching – the list is endless. The sooner we can start thinking about the details, the better.


3. Budget

Budgets come in all shapes and sizes, and we more time we can ensure you’re getting the best bespoke design we can offer to suit your brief.

In-house design and manufacture means that we know exactly what’s possible, and what will look fantastic, with the budget and brief available. We won’t give you an unrealistic design that can’t be made to fit your requirements.


4. Marketing

No event starts and ends on one day. Pre-event hype is all part of the process, but when you leave the awards to the last minute you could be missing out on engagement opportunities. Having a sneak-peek of your award is a compelling way to give people a taste of what’s to come.

We can discuss with you when and where you’ll receive your awards, and getting this process started early gives you plenty of time to incorporate your awards into your marketing strategy. The SoGlos lifestyle Awards are a great example of an event integrating award design with promotional material.



SoGlos have used a sample of their acrylic tablet across social media and on their website, to announce categories and sponsors. An image of your bespoke award is a great tool to get attendees and finalists excited about your awards.


You can make an enquiry about bespoke awards as early as initial event planning, and we can keep options open until you’re sure about a brief, branding, and budget.
