Which Is Better, Glass Awards or Flowers? – Fen Regis Trophies
When someone is unwell or struggling with ill health the standard gift is a bunch of flowers. They brighten the room, bring a smile to the receivers face and could even be a sign to represent spring, new growth or a fresh start… but if someone is or has been really ill is there something better to give than flowers?
When someone is badly injured or becomes extremely unwell they will usually end up in hospital. During their time at hospital they are often faced with a big decision, if they can fight off the illness or recover from the injury or if they should just give up all hope then and there.
To fight or repair from an illness or an injury the person will go through some tough personal struggles and self doubt. The healing process and subsequent recovery can often require a lot of personal sacrifices as well as changes in their lifestyle and often some very hard rehabilitation work too. Some may compare the struggle to an athlete preparing for an endurance challenge but there is a difference.
When the athlete prepares they are envisioning the light at the end of the tunnel, seeing their successes in front of them and envisioning themselves holding the trophy they have won. When you are struggling with a serious illness or injury it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel and there is certainly no award for their struggles but why not?
If we hear that our nearest and dearest are unwell we give them flowers, of course it is a nice gesture but a week later when the flowers have died what is left? When someone battles a serious and sometimes life threatening ordeal they deserve so much more – a medal at least surely?
Why not create the trend where glass awards are created for those that have successfully won the battle of health, this award will show that we recognise the struggle they have been through and it will congratulate them on their win. Every time they see the award it will remind them of what they can really achieve and encourage them to continue fighting.
So what do you think, could glass awards be the new flowers?
What Makes Crystal Awards Better Than Glass Awards?
Just looking at crystal awards it is clear to see why they are such a popular choice for corporate awards; a crystal corporate award has a special quality and a sort of ‘need to be seen’. They sparkle and glisten in all sorts of lighting conditions and we can genuinely say that a corporate crystal glass award is an honour to behold and it will be treasured for many years to come as it is such a stunning piece of glass.
Of course glass awards are cheaper than crystal glass awards, but if you are looking for a classy, sophisticated and elegant award that really stands out and oozes glamour then a crystal glass award is what you’re looking for, no questions asked.
Crystal contains denser materials than standard glass awards, which means a crystal glass award is a heavier award and also emits a pleasing high pitched resonance when tapped. You will also notice that a crystal award has smoother edges and due to the quality and style crystal awards will refract a rainbow prism of light which just adds to the beauty of the crystal award, making it perfect for a classy corporate awards ceremony.
If you are looking for a stunning glass award that looks incredible and will stand out from the crowd we have two main glass awards that may be of interest, these are the Blue Diamond Glass Trophy and the Optic Triangle Rainbow Award.
Our Blue Diamond Glass Trophy is more traditional in the sense of its trophy shape, but the mixture of blue and clear glass looks fabulous, especially when matched with the cuts and shape of this glass, a tall trophy shape with a subtle blue sapphire panel and then a sturdy clear glass base which allows the blue to travel through the glass trophy when caught at different angles.
When it comes to rainbows of light reflecting across the room, there are not many glass awards that do it better than our Optic Triangle Rainbow Award, made up of different layers of crystal glass to create the shape of a triangle. This is stunning crystal glass award and it really does offer something that stands out from the crowd and looks incredible wherever it is placed, to be cherished for many years.
If you are looking for a glass award that stands out from the crowd while oozing sophistication and elegance then give us a call, we would be only too happy to help you find the right glass award for your needs.
What Is The Value Of A Birthday Cake?
As with many other businesses, here at Fen Regis Trophies in Peterborough, we celebrate employees birthdays and often enjoy birthday cake to celebrate the occasion but isn’t celebrating a birthday a bit weird when you think about it? You’re celebrating the day you were born, and if we’re honest we are then celebrating the fact you are alive, year after year?
Of course everyone loves having a birthday, no matter how old or young you are. Your birthday is an exciting day and you feel really special all day long because your birthday is ‘your day’. You will have birthday cake, people will buy you cards and gifts and it will be a wonderful day.
But we’re celebrating the day you were born and that same day for many years after, why make a big deal about the day you were born? You’ve not really achieved anything other than staying alive for another year? But hey, it’s fun! No matter the reason a celebration is always welcome.
So why not make a bigger deal out of something that is an achievement, something that someone has worked hard to achieve and put in a great deal of effort? This may be securing a huge range of new clients, improving the business, being a great player in a sports team or anything. If you’re going to have a celebration for ‘being alive’ then why not celebrate real achievements?
Nobody was ever hurt by too many pats on the back, words of congratulations and acknowledgement for their hard work so why not look at those that really are achieving something special in your workplace or organisation and think about how you can congratulate them. A glass award is often a great idea as it’s a permanent reminder that their hard work is noticed.
Alternatively in a business you can celebrate the business of the birthday but also class an employee’s birthday as the day they joined the company, giving them a glass recognition award with the length of service on the front can be a really nice touch and will result in that special ‘birthday feeling’ – especially when you add a cake to celebrations too!

The Cut Star Jade Glass Award is a classy and sophisticated glass award, due to its shape it certainly stands out from the crowd. The engraving space is not huge but it has enough room for a company logo or branding along with the name of the award winner, the award title and the date the award was won.
Our Sliced Bevelled Pillar Glass Award is a more traditional take on the corporate award, as it is like a glass trophy. This glass award is a stunning piece of glass, sparkling and glistening under any lighting, to create a really elegant and glamorous glass award that is an honour to give and receive.
Our Curved Glass Award is another popular corporate glass award and we think this is down to two reasons, firstly this glass award has a huge amount of space for engraving so you can have any company branding, logo and motto along with the name of the award, winner and date the award was won and any other personal wording too. The second reason this corporate glass award is so popular is because it is available from just £15.50, this is a high quality glass corporate award that offers extremely great value for money.

Awarding the Stars in Your Business

Through creating an extra incentive in the way of glass awards you are also adding a touch of friendly competition into your workplace and this will encourage your employees to increase not only the quantity, but also the quality of their work for your business.

Ice Hockey Trophies – Did You Know?
Trophies and awards are given for many reasons, from school achievement awards to player of the year awards in sports, from long serving awards within companies to best new comer in corporate award ceremonies. Lots of trophies and awards are being given out for a wide range of reasons.
The team here at Fen Regis Trophies have been reading the Guinness Book of World Records, scouring for various facts and records held in regards to trophies and awards. We are currently going through a period when our best selling trophies and awards are glass trophies and glass awards at present so we thought we would focus on some trophies records that would be well suited to glass trophies or glass awards.
So let’s get started;
Did You Know the world record for the most ice hockey Jack Adams Trophies is held by Pat Burns who has won a Jack Adam Trophy three times.
The Jack Adams Trophy is awarded to an ice hockey coach who is deemed to have contributed the most to the success of his team each NHL Season. Pat Burns broke the world record in January 1998 after winning the award with three different teams. Pat Burns won the trophy for the first time with the Montreal Canadiens in 1989 and then in 1993 he won the trophy again with the Toronto Maple Leafs and then he won the trophy for the third time, to break the world record, with the Boston Bruins in 1998. The Jack Adams Trophy is currently a large silver trophy engraved with the names of the winning coaches.
Did You Know Wayne Gretsky holds the world record for the most ice hockey Art Ross Trophies, further to winning the trophy a whopping ten times.
The Art Ross Trophy is awarded to the player who has scored the highest amount of points in NHL regular season play. The Art Ross Trophy is awarded once a year and has been awarded to Canadian ice hockey player Wayne Gretsky ten times between 1981 and 1984. It is a silver bowl trophy on a wooden plinth with names of all previous winners engraved on it.
Large metal trophies are great as a show of all previous winners, but unless you are lucky to win the trophy three times like Pat Burns or even ten times like Wayne Gretsky you only get to have the trophy in your home for one year. Wouldn’t it be great if winners of large awards like this were given a glass trophy or glass award as a keepsake so they can show off their award for years to come?
If you would like to order glass trophies or glass awards for your award ceremonies then give us a call. We have a wide range of engraved glass trophies and awards to choose from so why not call us now to see how we can help you.
Do You Need A Large Engraving Space On Your Glass Award?

The curved glass award is available in three sizes; small, medium and large and these sizes range from 5 inches in height to 7 inches in height sop they are very large and elegant glass awards.
Very often businesses and award ceremony organisers are keen to get lots onto a glass award but this can be tricky with small awards that offer less engraving space, but the curved glass award has lots of room for engraving, allowing you to put the company logo onto the award along with the logo of the sponsor and even the logo of the winning company.
Along with the logos you can also include any wording of your choice such as the name of the award winner, the award that they have won, the date on which the award was won and even some personalised wording at the bottom that gives a reason or two of why they were nominated for and then went on to win the award.
Many of our customers have also purchased the curved glass award as a plaque to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary of a loved one or friend. Our curved glass award really does make a great personalised glass gift for a wide range of occasions and people.
