1.How long a lead time do you need to make me some trophies?

How long is a piece of string? It depends. All our trophies are individually hand made to order. We don’t keep stock on the shelves. So your lead time depends on the number of trophies you are after and how busy we are. If you just wanted a couple of small trophies we can usually squeeze them in the next week. But 100 trophies would more likely be a few weeks. Best just to contact us at the time for an estimate. But keep in mind that we have never missed a deadline. Trophies that arrive the day after the presentation wouldn’t win us a lot of friends. If we can’t hit your deadline then we will say so up front. Next time maybe.

2. Where do you source your timber?

We use exclusively local Australian timbers. Much of it harvested from our own property.

3. What sort of wood stains do you use to get all those different colours in your trophies?

No stains. They are all natural timber colours. What, even the bright reds and yellows? Yes.

4. Do you use other materials besides timber?

No, well hardly ever. Although we did make some sabot trophies recently with the Aussie state of Queensland in the background cut out of a beautiful translucent smoky grey acrylic. And we used some stainless steel rod for a fancy perpetual trophy but that was for golf so probably doesn’t count.
