By Katie Taylor , The British Arrows Craft Awards

“We wanted to encompass the ethos of craftsmanship in the design and to honour the winners with an award that was heavily crafted and weighted to reflect its worth. We were recommended Special EFX as a manufacturer who would work closely with us to achieve the ultimate and embrace our high expectations”. The production challenge was how to create a ghost-like body for the arrow, whilst still ensuring visual impact, which was solved by EFX with acrylic encapsulation. Katie was impressed: “Working with Sophie and the EFX team was a dream – they pre-empted our every need and reached solutions before we had even posed the question”.

By Mark Norton , CIWM

The Awards is a major event for the CIWM, which this year was supported by over 400 people from across the industry. The gala event endorses the CIWM’s privileged position as the voice of the industry and the beautifully crafted glass awards have become highly valued and help to maintain the CIWM’s profile and brand recognition.

“Another year, another successful RAD Awards ( With so many elements to the event it’s good to know that I don’t have to worry about the trophies. Special EFX are excellent at giving me a ‘nudge’ to remind me of deadlines and so everything is produced and dispatched in a timely manner. As in previous years the trophies were waiting for us by the stage in the Grosvenor House. No stress, all perfect.”

“I found working with EFX a real joy! Their range of trophies is superb and the speed of service and attention to detail is second to none. We wanted a trophy that wowed the winner, the audience and the industry and we certainly achieved that with the CUBIX, as the trophy was handed to the winner you could see the winner mouth ‘WOW it’s not plastic’. We have had requests from winners who would like to purchase additional trophies to display around their business: a decision motivated by the sheer quality and elegance of the trophy.”

“I was really happy with the designs and the finished trophies, which looked so good on the night. We would totally recommend EFX and I'm sure we'll be back again next year for design of our 2015 trophies.”

“Autocar were very excited and proud to present the newly formed Autocar Stars Awards. To celebrate these highly acclaimed awards Autocar commissioned EFX to produce some truly stunning trophies. The Issigonis and Sturmey trophies were fabulous examples of what can be achieved using a 3D effect in polished crystal. Our 5 Star Silver trophies were again stunning and represented our brand perfectly.“

By Matthew Davies , Partner Events

"We wanted a trophy that reflects the logo, but in a dynamic and less literal style. It's lazy just to simply recreate an Awards' logo as a trophy. A different approach is needed for bespoke awards and that's where Special EFX comes into its own. A small creative step sideways produced a sophisticated design, artistic in its appeal and worthy of the winners."

"The trophies for this year's Awards went down a storm. We wanted something impactful, iconic and stylish – and EFX certainly delivered. The Fortnum & Mason Food & Drink Awards deserve stand-out awards trophies that are instantly recognisable and we really feel we have achieved that now. I'm sure they'll be used for years to come".

“The awards look great every year – but this year they looked particularly good. The cut-outs of the crown logo were immaculate and coupled with the gold base they looked really beautiful”.

By CEO of Phab , Phab

When Phab, the hair and beauty standard, was setting up, it turned to EFX for its recognition trophies, engraved membership cards and personalised certificates: “Melanie and her team are a blinding example of what customer service is all about and how it can define your business – nothing was too much trouble for them, and the acclamations we have received regarding the stunning awards are the perfect endorsement.”

“EFX, as always, were a joy to work with for the TV Choice Awards. Highly efficient, thorough and committed, they always produce stunning awards for each of our award productions”

By Autoglym’s Public Relations & Events Executive , AutoGlym

“We started off with quite an open brief and asked for a range of bespoke award options that met a budget. All we were certain on was our logo, the award wording and that it should be metal... The designs that came back were a great start, although not exactly what our CEO had in mind. After discussing with him what he was after and collecting some image ideas, we refined our brief. EFX quickly came back to us with exactly what we wanted and, despite time constraints, the award arrived one day early – a bonus! It was great to see it in real life and it ticked all the boxes; automotive, premium and large.”
