n addition to the cups and medals we offer in our online shop, you can of course also order their engraving at CONTRA. For the trophies, we usually engrave a plastic plate or, in exceptional cases, a metal plate that is attached to the base of the trophy. Metal shields usually take a little longer to produce. The size of these plates varies from trophy to trophy, and thus the space available and the number of possible lines and font sizes also varies. Medals are usually engraved on the reverse. The space available for medals also varies.
Engraved cups and medals are therefore always completely individualised products with a large number of possible designs. To make ordering as easy as possible for you, our engraving service charges a standard price for cups and a standard price for medals.

Depending on the base material, plastic or metal, two techniques are used for our engraving service to achieve the best possible result. For metal engravings we mainly use laser engraving and when engraving plastic we use machine engraving.
In engraving, whether by hand or by machine, material is removed from a tool and chips are produced. This makes engraving a machining process. In machine engraving, material is removed with a rotary cutter. The engraved motif is created by the removal of material. If the layer base material has different colours, a multi-coloured engraving motif can even be created if the engraving depths vary.
The most modern engraving technique is laser engraving. The hot laser beam heats the surface of the material. The thermal impulses change the surface by vaporising or burning, which changes the surface colour at the spot. The engraving motif is created by the contrast between the non-lasered and lasered surfaces. The laser beam can be controlled. Different pulse sequences and the pulse energies even make it possible to display halftones for reproductions of pixelated representations such as photos.
