Nashville trophy shop owners talk about awards

What services do you offer?

Angel Andress: "We do trophies, plaques, corporate awards and school awards."

Larry Langteau: "We offer trophies, plaques, crystal and acrylic awards, gifts, medals and engraving."

Why should people choose you over an online company?

Jameson: "Customer service. The Internet is convenient but you don't know what you're getting."

Andress: "We pride ourselves on great customer service and a great product."

Langteau: "We offer personalized service and we care about the customer."

What are some of the options for figures on top of trophies?

Jameson: "We typically do mainstream sports. But we also do horseshoes, karate, dance, golf, bowling and hockey."

Andress: "We have lots of interesting things like toilet seats, horses' behinds and Santa Claus."

Langteau: "Besides the usual sports, we have a horses' behind and chili pots for chili cook-offs."

How do you charge for trophies and what's a typical price?

Jameson: "A typical 12-inch trophy is $10 to $12 and our engraving is included."

Andress: "By the design. A 12-inch trophy is around $8 to $10 depending on what style you want done."

Langteau: "By size and how long it takes. A 6-inch trophy would be $4 to $5, and 12- to 14-inches would be around $8 to $12."

Do people still have the same attachment to trophies that they once did?

Jameson: "As you become an adult I don't think so, but children always enjoy getting something."

Andress: "Yes, kids play sports because they think they're getting a trophy for participating and good sportsmanship."

Langteau: "It's a different type of attachment. 8-year-olds still love trophies, but older customers are getting more sophisticated."

What makes you stand out from your competition?

Jameson: "Our service, our quality and our pricing."

Andress: "Our customer service, our product quality and we're always here."

Langteau: "Our friendly customer service and quick turnaround time."

What's the funniest or most unusual award or trophy request you've received?

Jameson: "We did a plaque for a fantasy football league called the 'crap' award. It was pretty unique."

Andress: "We plate a toilet seat every year for a golf tournament."

Langteau: "We mounted a small plastic toilet and some toilet paper onto a plaque."
