Trophies online

Trophies are a good example of products that you can sell online. They are not to heavy and consistent in weight so you calculate the shipping reliably which is always important in an online environment- for many eCommerce store owners shipping can be a killer  to calculate and if too high can put off buyers. As a business trophy selling can be a good business model as because they are often given to teams you tend to sell in bulk and teams receive them every year so you  so you have repeat business.

You can order online your end of year trophies  for sports whose season is coming to an end  such as Rugby, Table tennis and hockey to celebrate the season just past  for all sporting grades and levels. Wikipedia describes Trophies as

“A trophy is a tangible, durable reminder of a specific achievement, and serves as recognition or evidence of merit. Trophies are often awarded for sporting events, from youth sports to professional level athletics. In many sports medals (or, in North America, rings) are often given out either as the trophy or along with more traditional trophies.”

Many sports such as Golf, and motor sports award trophies and medals all year round. Then there are the summer sports of Basketball and Swimming whose season is only just beginning.

There is also a great debate about whether “participation trophies” are good or bad as ignited by the NFL player  James Harrison who said he didn’t want his 2 sons under the age of 10 to receive “participation trophies” for “something they didn’t work for or deserve” but many other have come out to point out that things are not so black and white. But many other authors and commentators have been alot more circumspect in their opinions pointing out that it really depends on both the circumstance and the child or participant. I particular thought this from the article the Wimbleton trophy winner Novak Djokovic’s foundation was very well balanced on the subject of participation trophies.
