Frequently Asked Questions
I ordered one of your trophies on Amazon. How do I request the free engraved plate?
Click here and fill out our simple Amazon Plate Request form: https://www.decadeawards.com/amazon-plate-request-form/
Is there any extra fee for engraving?
We proudly offer FREE Engraving on all trophies and awards (ADDITIONAL engraving plates or positions can incur extra fees). We NEVER charge extra for additional lines or characters. Check the product description of your awards for details on number of engraving lines and limits.
Can I add extra lines or more characters per line that what is stated?
The # of engraving lines and characters/spaces per line are maximum guidelines. For most personalized items, we can add extra lines or characters per line but will make the text smaller for the engraving plate. Just ask or place additional engraving instructions in the “additional Information” box. ** Some items do have strict maximum limits due to font availability or templates chosen.
Is the engraving CENTERED?
Yes, we center justify all lines of engraving on the engraving plate or engraving area of your personalized item/award unless otherwise requested.
Do you engrave rings or jewelry?
No, we do not engrave rings or any jewelry. We recommend taking those items to a jeweler that can have them specially engraved for you.
How are your products shipped?
We typically use Fedex Ground or USPS First Class or Priority Mail shipping unless a customer specifies a different method. We offer FREE Ground Shipping on all orders over $100. We can ship via air or expedited services at an additional cost. When choosing your shipping option, our system defaults to lowest cost method.

What will it cost to ship my order?
Shipping and handling charges are based on the level of service chosen. You can get a free quote by placing your items in the shopping cart and then entering your zip code for the shipping quote. We offer FREE ground shipping on all orders shipped within the Continental United States over $100. There is no code to enter. Order $100 or more and select the Free Ground Shipping Service for free delivery.
All other shipping and handling costs are determined by weight, size, shipping service level, and distance from our location in Spokane, Washington, to your address. Once you add items to the cart you can enter your zip code into the “calculate Shipping” box and click on “GO”. Our system will then show you the shipping cost for all available shipping methods.
Do you ship outside the United States?
Only to CANADA; ALL DUTIES & TAXES ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE RECIPIENT. We cannot calculate or estimate these costs for you (typically these are 18-20% of the total order & shipping cost)
Do you ship to APO/FPO Military addresses?
Yes, we do ship to APO/FPO address via USPS Priority Mail.
Do you ship to Canada?
Yes, we ship to Canada via Fedex or USPS Services. You can choose either option and see the shipping cost upon checkout (Step 2). All additional Custom &/or Duty Fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. We cannot calculate or estimate these costs for you.
Do you offer shipping insurance?
All awards & gifts are insured against loss and damage during shipping at no extra cost to you. If an item is received damaged, please notify us immediately so a claim can be filed and replacement items can be sent ASAP. We cannot offer replacements or refunds on claims received more than 7 days after received by the customer. Please be sure to check your orders upon receipt of packages.
Can I order just 1 award?
Yes; our system is set up to take single orders to large volume orders.
How do I order multiple trophies with the same engraving information but with different NAMES?
The easiest method is to put "NAME / #" in the line that you would like this information; then put the rest of the engraving information into line #2 & Line #3 etc.. (i.e. Team name & year). Then in the additional names or Additional information box below the engraving lines, add each players name & #, if desired, separated by a comma.
Another option is to just put "See engraving information sent via email" in the engraving line, order the # of awards you need, and then reply back to the emailed order confirmation via email with your engraving file or text information for the awards.
If we have any questions, we will contact you immediately for clarification.
Can I order by phone?
Yes, if you are uncomfortable using your credit card for internet purchases we can accept your order over the phone. Just contact us at (509) 474-9530. All personalization information should still be sent by email for your awards to insure the correct spelling on the final product. It is easy & secure to place the order over the internet.
How do I know if my order was received?
Once your order is placed and payment is received, our system will email you immediately with an order confirmation. Please review the order confirmation to make sure all shipping and engraving information is correct. If you do not receive an order confirmation, please contact us via email or telephone to confirm your order.
