When you are thinking of making the right trophies and awards to make for any event, you will want to think about using the right materials to make those awards. Trophies and awards are something that people should be proud to show off.
The most common materials that people make their awards from will be metals and plastic, but you will want to think about using crystal. Metals are great for making trophies, but the biggest problem is that they will start to rust and oxidized over time. When this happens, the person who received the award will not really want, to show the trophies off any more. They might end up in the attic, doing nothing more than collecting dusts. You will really not want to give a trophy, which will end up in that state.
Plastic awards are even worse since they are considered cheap and no one will really want, to show them off in the first place. You will want to use crystal since they do not really need to be maintained, they are also strong and durable. The lifespan of the crystal award will be up to how well the person takes care of it, you might want to think about placing the award in a place, where no children can reach.
