Cartoon shadows of various trophies and plaques.Your life is an experience worth bragging about. Sure, you may have a resume or scrapbook detailing your achievements; but what about your certificates? Your features or pictures from the local newspaper? Your awards? The first thing that may come to mind is a shelf full of trophies portraying your achievements with shimmering gleam, but that is no way to show off what you have achieved! While trophies may be tempting souvenirs, they are the reason that may be lowering the quality of your workspace! But how can trophies hinder the amount of your achievements?

Plaques vs. Trophies

Winning a trophy is a wonderful moment in one’s life. Whether through a sporting event, an achievement through work, or a specific milestone, trophies always create a wonderful sense of achievement when placing it on a shelf. But why say no to trophies?

Trophies are bulky. They can take up a lot of space that may overcrowd your workplace. A crowded office then takes away from the glory of what you have accomplished. Add to that the excess expense of new shelves or cabinets to house them all. Over time, trophies can lose their shine, and the extra weight can break the shelves that cost you your hard earned money. Not all information can be placed on a trophy, but you can customize every detail on your own plaque!

While trophies may usually contain just your name and the event, plaques can add so much more. Your name, position, award, and any related documents or photos can be placed on the plaque as well. Documents and trophies can become very crowded when placed together, but plaques can turn achievements into a neatly organized visual resume on your own wall. Plaques can decorate the walls of your home, office, or workspace. Looking to impress that client that’s coming to visit? Give them your best impression with established credibility and a recognized professional image. If the plaques are for your company, you can place them in a break room or communal workspace to inspire your employees.

When choosing plaques over trophies, you save yourself time, money, and office space. You can hang your plaque anywhere or display it in any cabinet; trophies can only sit on tables or shelves that hardly leave enough room for anything else.
