The History of the Grammy Award… Trophies are a great way to Recognize Accomplishment

The 2013 Grammy Awards will be held at the Staples Center on February 10th in Los Angeles, California and everyone is buzzing about the nominees and who will walk away with the coveted gold-plated trophies that are the main attraction of the event. While I am personally rooting for Jack White to take home Album of the Year and Best Rock Song, all of the competition is as varied as it is talented.

The Grammy Trophy has an interesting history which is overlooked in all of the anticipation and festivities. It is this behind-the-scene trivia that most relates to my topic: Trophies are a great way to recognize achievements and the people that put the event together are artistic individuals that put a lot of thought into what the general public will see.

The first annual Grammy Awards Ceremony was held on May 4th, 1959 to honor the musical accomplishments of performers from the previous year. They came about because it was apparent that many influential people in the business would never be eligible for the Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on Hollywood Boulevard. Music executives decided it would be best to create an awards ceremony for their industry much like the Oscars and Emmys.
Once they had settled on the ceremony, they had to figure out what to name it and what kind of award would suit the event. After much debate the executives decided to name the prestigious event after Emile Berliner who invented the gramophone, the first device designed for recording and replaying sound. This icon of musical history would also become the main event, a trophy plated in gold and hand assembled in Colorado.

When people think of trophies, I think more often than not it calls to mind the wall of dusty football and weightlifting trophies that old Uncle Al still keeps in his den. Here at The Trophy Shop we take pride in every trophy we assemble and love coming up with something that fits the occasion perfectly. There are many spectacular forms that trophies take and no matter how prestigious the event, the recipients always enjoy having something they can take home as tangible proof of their hard work and accomplishments. With a little creativity, The Trophy Shop can make sure that your presentation will live up to your expectations. Just visit our website or our showroom to get your ideas rolling.

Recognition Rocks!

The Trophy Shop in Gainesville, FL makes recognition easy!

One of the best ways a person can make another feel good about something they are doing is simply to tell them that they are doing a great job. This is the art of recognition. There are not many relationships, personal or business, that will survive without the fostering of good feelings associated with being truly appreciated.

Although saying the words, “you did a great job today” is simple and promotes a positive response, sometimes it just isn’t enough in the long term. If a mother who cares for an entire family with diligence and grace hears “Thanks Mom!” after every small act, such as serving dinner, washing clothes, or making sure that everybody’s shoes are by the door before they leave for school, it begins to feel repetitive and generic. When she is presented with a hand picked bunch of flowers (secretly wondering what neighbor is missing her prized amaryllis) or a coupon book full of “I will do the dishes tonight” and “I will not knock on your bedroom door after 9:00 pm”, it makes her feel like all the hard work and sacrifices are worth it. She feels appreciated. If she was weary and stressed before, this gives her motivation to keep giving her all. This is the power of recognition.


Sometimes it is best to go above and beyond and really let someone know that what they do is meaningful and impacts your life or your business in an important way. At The Trophy Shop, we specialize in finding creative ways to make this possible. Whether you are thinking about trophies for a sports team or a beautiful glass award for a corporate office (or a vase for that amaryllis for Mom), The Trophy Shop has you covered. We love helping you make the important people in your life smile.

Custom Engraving Done At The Trophy Shop

 Engraved Items Make Great Gifts!

With the holiday season fast approaching, everybody is on the hunt for unique gifts that will make everyone on their list smile. Here at The Trophy Shop we offer diamond bit engraving that can take a gift idea from ordinary to extraordinary! For a small setup charge and the cost of engraving we can add names, dates, phrases and logos to all kinds of items including (but not limited to) jewelry, knives, ornaments, serving sets, stainless steel travel mugs and key chains. We offer a variety of fonts to choose from that range from classic to modern, block or script. You can look through our font book or if you are in a hurry you can opt to allow our engraver to have artistic license and feel confident that you will be pleased with the result. Monograms are a timeless addition to many items such as cuff links or lockets and metal picture frames can be customized with dates or words to commemorate important events. Do you have a gear-head in the family that spends more time in the garage than in the house and you have already bought all the tools that you think they could possibly need? We can engrave chrome parts! (This is a great idea for Harley enthusiasts and muscle car junkies) The possibilities are endless and engraving is such an easy way to make sure that the receiver feels that this gift is just for them. We do require that you bring the item into the shop so that our engravers can take a look at it and determine that it will mount into our state of the art diamond bit engraving machine. We also have a huge selection of gift items right here in our showroom if you are looking for a one-stop shop! So get out of that boring gift basket aisle and bring us your ideas! We love a challenge and we rarely say no!
