3D Printed Trophies by Gaudio
Complex details, unusual shapes, and impressive designs; these are the hallmarks of a 3D printed trophy.
The ultimate in bespoke award design, 3D printers work a little bit like a desktop printer, but instead of using ink, they print with resin or biomaterial in a 3D space. At Gaudio, we design and manufacture 3D-printed trophies in-house. Our expert Account Managers, design team and craftspeople create unique custom trophies using 3D-printed components, for showstopping awards for every occasion.
To win an award is often the long-awaited recognition for individuals, teams and organisations after potentially years of work. Whether it’s dedication to a particular project, or best performance in a sports tournament after weeks of training, a 3D-printed trophy can encapsulate the hours of commitment and celebration of the result.
What do 3D Printed trophies look like?
From incorporating branded elements, to creating complex figures with fine detail, 3D printing is a highly flexible manufacturing method. It offers several different creative avenues for our in-house design team to create beautifully unique bespoke awards.
In some cases, the entire trophy may be created using 3D-printed resin or biomaterial. For other designs, we can use 3D printed components in addition to other materials, or use a 3D-printed shape to create a mould for casting processes.
A 3D printed trophy is finished in-house by our expert craftspeople, and can be painted, printed, and plated to add additional colour and detail. Gold 3D-printed trophies – like the Go One Better Award picture here – offer a shiny premium finish alongside fine details on a contemporary design.

How Much Do 3D Printed Trophies Cost?
So, how much does it cost to 3D print a trophy?
The cost of a 3D printed trophy varies depending on two main factors:
Design – The size of a design, designs that use mixed materials, and designs that require additional finishing are all elements that can all impact the cost of an award.
Quantity – We offer a price-break system, so the unit price of each trophy decreases on larger orders. For 3D-printed trophies, stock options are extremely cost effective.
