If you are organising an event or incentives programme you may be asking yourself “how do I commission a bespoke award or trophy?” At Gaudio we have many years of experience in the awards industry and as a result we have developed a tried and tested process to make the experience as easy as possible.
Step 1: Your Brief
The thing that makes each of our awards and trophies unique is your brief. This doesn’t have to be a 50 page book, a logo and budget will suffice! The more information you can give us at this stage, the more likely we are to get your design right.
Step 2: Design & Quote
In order to give you an accurate quote we need to draw up the design, but don’t worry, our design service is completely free of charge! Our design team will put together a range of ideas based on your brief and send them over to you with a quote. We aim to get the designs to you within 48 hours. If the designs aren’t exactly what you were looking for we are happy to make changes and redesign based on your feedback. This service is completely free and without obligation, so why not let us design an award for you?
Step 3: Order Confirmation
Once we have come up with your perfect award design you are ready to place your order, so have your credit card at the ready! We will send you an order confirmation detailing the expected delivery date, delivery and invoice address, design choice and quantity. This is your chance to check that you are happy with all of the details in the order (excluding proofing the awards – this happens later).
Step 4: Proofing
We ask to have all of the winners/engraving details 2 weeks before the shipping date to give us chance to draw up the proofs for your approval before we start printing/engraving.
Step 5: Shipping
Our normal lead times for manufacture are 4-6 weeks from the point of order, but can turn around some awards in as little as 2 weeks! We ship all of our awards with a next day courier to ensure that everything arrives with you in 1 piece.
And that’s it, a custom designed award in 5 easy steps! If you need any more information, try our FAQ page, or contact us. Take advantage of our free design service to see what we can do for you.
