About Us

About Vermont Trophy We are a group of people who believe our tag line
RECOGNITION IS RESPECT MADE VISIBLE
and work to create each award, sign or trophy in such a way that the recipient feels recognized and respected.
  • This is why we don’t laser metal - it is quick and cheap and it looks it
  • Since we won’t make cheap plaques (lasering them) we worked hard to develop an economical alternative because budget aside people deserve to be recognized with respect
  • This is why we invested in a sand blaster - because glass blasted with sand has a depth that catches the light and adds a radiance to the finished product
  • This is why we invested in laser technology because - metals aside - it does a superb job on plastics, acrylics, wood and bricks
  • This is why we have no phone menus - one of the people in the photo above will answer your call 8-5, M-F EST
  • This is why we are constantly finding new products and technologies - why we come to work everyday is to spread the respect we have for our customers and the recipients of our work as far as we can
