Bridgeport Trophy Company Incorporated in 1980 with goal of being known as more than a -trophy store.

Right from the beginning, the concept of an awards company took hold, and we decided to rename our company BTC Awards.BTC Awards has established the reputation for outstanding customer service and top quality products. We have been a leader in the industry for 25 years. Family owned and operated, our experience dates back to the 1940's when our grandfather, through personal contacts, networking on the golf course and door to door, sold jewelry, crystal, gifts, promotional items, trophies, plaques, seasonal items, religious items and so on. His philosophy is still with us, -the customer comes first. Our grandmother, still mentions, and we think she is complaining, how he would invite customers to dinner, most of the time at the spare of the moment. Although we can't have a meal ready for our customer's, we will show you the same -customer comes first -attitude.BTC Awards is located on route 23, one block east of the intersection of route 23 and 202 in Bridgeport, PA, we are easily accessible from all the major routes; 476, PA Turnpike, 76, 422, 202, and both Ridge and Germantown Pikes.

Our experienced artisans engrave using the earliest and latest equipment available.To this day, we use our original equipment. The pantograph is used to manually engrave odd and difficult-to-hold pieces. The computer controlled mechanical engravers, is for rotary and pressure engraving into metal and plastic surfaces. These machines are used for engraving all plated gifts and awards, such as bowls, mugs, silver plates, watches, key tags, signs, medal, the list is endless. In addition to the mechanical engravers, we also use laser engravers. The laser is used for engraving wood products, acrylic awards, plastic name badges, signs, anodized products, coated metal such as plaque plates and this list is endless. The other process we offer is sandblasting, sometimes called sand carving, or deep etched. We use this process on glass, crystal, marble, metal and some cast materials. It requires developing a mask, applying it to the product or item, and then blasting the item with compressed air and a media. This process allows us to achieve a desire depth into our products.BTC Awards selects the best technique for each individual item. For example, glass, some crystal, and marble can be engraved with either a mechanical engraver or laser engraver. The result is a very shallow non-opaque mark or a rough cut into the item.
