Trophies and awards are proof of your brilliance and can help you make a great first impression on potential clients, add to your reputation, draw admiration or envy from anyone who looks at them. With all these benefits you can get out of your accumulated medals and awards, it’s unwise to have them lying forgotten under a pile of old junk or thrown higgledy-piggledy on some obscure shelf. Here’s some tips on displaying trophies and awards for the best effect.
Instead, follow these great tips by Megan Allen to let your trophies reflect your shining achievements.
Decide which room you want the trophies and medals displayed in. Choose a prominent shelf for your trophies and a wall for your medals, preferably one overlooking the entrance to the room. Position the trophies in a way that the tallest ones are at the back and shorter ones in front.
Place your medals in a shadow box. Shadow boxes are framed boxes that are deep enough to hold items and are great for displaying medals and even trophies.
Adding lights over the shelves and shadow boxes will spotlight your awards and add to the interest. You can use small battery operated lights – the stick-on type. For enhancing the display, you can also add framed photographs of yourself receiving the awards.
