How Do I Order a New Detail Plate for My Traveling Award?

You’ve completed another successful season in your fantasy league, and now it’s time to add your new champion’s name to your traveling award … What do you need to do to get a new plate that is engraved to match your previous plates? That is what we want to address in this blog posting.

At Affordable Trophies, we keep all engraving files from previous orders, so it is no problem to engrave another plate in the same font size/style as we did on your previous order. We will refer to your previous invoice for customers to review content and format. You will find your Previous Invoice on our homepage. Make sure to use the complete invoice number (usually eight characters – six numbers, with your initials at the end, with no spaces). If you are ordering just additional plates for awards you ordered from us previously, we typically ship them via uninsured US Mail to save on shipping costs. Let us know if you would prefer them to be shipped via UPS (the cost would be significantly higher). To request a new plate, please use our Plate Quote Request form.

Be careful on these things when ordering a new plate for your traveling trophy: It is your responsibility to make sure that all spelling is correct and that the text is laid out as you would like. We will use your previous order as a template to make sure that the same font and lettering size is used, but we cannot re-structure your submitted engraving info to make sure that, for example, the team name and team owner are in the same order as your previous plates. Please make sure your invoice contains your current address before issuing your payment. Review your invoice carefully to ensure that everything is correct before issuing your payment; once payment has been made, extra costs will be incurred if any further changes are necessary.

Your traveling trophy is your league’s monument to greatness, and you want to do everything you can to make it look the best it can when you add new information to it. We at Affordable Trophies can help in that effort and can help you minimize your costs in doing so if you follow the guidelines presented here.


Best Possible Shopping Experience

At Affordable Trophies, we try to make sure that you have the best possible shopping experience. You can make shopping online easy, fun, and very rewarding by following a few guidelines.

Please make sure you read all about Affordable Trophies before considering a purchase. Check out our FAQ page for quick answers to most questions. We do not utilize an automated system; we have a process that allows more contact with customers. Please make sure you understand our ordering procedure. We would also suggest reading over our shipping terms, return policy, and all of the time-saving and money-saving suggestions we have compiled for our customers.

It is extremely important to make sure everything on your invoice is correct. Once you have issued your payment, we assume that you have checked all of your engraving, that you have made sure you have selected the items you desire, and that you have provided the correct shipping address. We start working on orders as soon as possible after receiving payment. If you need to make a change after payment, it will require additional fees to make corrections. Please take the time to read over your invoice carefully. We suggest, if possible, that you allow someone else to check behind you, since it is so easy to look at something several times and miss something very significant.

It is our experience that simple engraving and shipping address errors are the most common customer mistakes. You can avoid these mistakes and have the best shopping experience possible if you follow the advice given above.

Have Perfect Engraving

Be sure to check the text very carefully, including things like punctuation, capitalization, and spelling on your quote and/or invoice. Do NOT assume that we will make corrections for you! Many fantasy leagues have names and team names that are intentionally misspelled, so we do not correct spelling. We import your text directly from your invoice, so the way it looks on the invoice is the way it will be engraved (other than centering, which we will perform unless told not to).

For suggestions on typical engraving for the award(s) you are considering, please see our FAQ page. The engraving is just as important as the award itself, so put some thought into what you want your award to say, and make sure it is appropriate for the occasion. Use the custom engraving to help the trophy add fun and excitement to your league!
