    • Guide to Colors for First, Second and Third Place

      This blog post was requested by a customer. She couldn't find anywhere on our website how to choose the corresponding colors for First, Second and Third place. What a great topic and suggestion!

      When ordering awards, it's important to know the traditional colors for the places. Use the guide below for the correct colors for the US; Canada is slightly different.

      Neck drape and medal colors for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. Neck drape and medal colors for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.

      First Place: Gold and blue are the colors that represent 1st place. Gold medals are given to the top finishers at the Olympics and this carries over to the rest of the awards world. Blue ribbons, blue neck drapes, and blue column are also used to represent first place. Think of the quintessential cook off, where the top contestant gets a "Blue Ribbon"!

      Second Place: Silver and red symbolize 2nd place. These finishers get a silver medal, as well as red ribbons and neck drapes as a second place prize.

      Third Place: Bronze and white stand for 3rd place. Bronze medals are given to third place finishers along with white neck drapes and white ribbons.

      Fourth Place: There isn't a metal color for 4th place. For ribbons, it's yellow.

      Fifth Place: Again, no metal color for 5th place, but the ribbon color is green.

      Ribbon colors for places. Ribbon colors for places.

      Here's a table to help remember:

      Place Medal Color Ribbon Color
      1st Gold Blue
      2nd Silver Red
      3rd Bronze White
      4th x Yellow
      5th x Green

       

      I hope this helps with ordering from Trophies2Go!  Feel free to let me know if you have any questions or other blog topics you'd like covered about trophies and awards by commenting below.

    • Guy's Weekend Fantasy Football Draft

      If you're like my husband, you anticipate your fantasy football draft for the entire year.  Make the best day of the year even better by hosting a guys' weekend!  Combine your passion for football as an excuse to get together with your buddies - make your fantasy football draft into an epic kick-off for the NFL season.

      Why a weekend away?

      Big Johnson League Last year's Big Johnson League draft.

      Dudes, you need the weekend off.  You work hard, take care of the kids, spoil your wives.  You deserve a weekend with your friends where you can play golf, deal cards, visit a casino, watch sports, and drink beer with your buddies.  Your draft can go as long as you want, without worry about getting home, being responsible, or driving under the influence.  Be as loud and rowdy as you like, there's nobody to wake.

      It's good for the wives too.  No house to host at, no loud men to wake the kids, no snacks to clean up after everyone's gone.  Just a nice, peaceful, relaxing weekend!

      Where should we go?

      Fantasy draft weekend Golf, cards, and football - that's what a fantasy draft weekend is all about!

      If everyone in your draft is local, choose someplace that's close to drive, yet can fit your entire group.  Renting a house is a great option, as you can be loud and can spread out during the draft.  I would suggest a location that has other activities for the rest of the weekend, such as restaurants, bars, a golf course, a casino, fishing, hiking, or other outdoor activities.  After all, it's summer, time to enjoy the outdoors before the weather turns!

      If the guys and gals in your draft are meeting from around the country, choose a location that's easy to get to from most airports.  Vegas is always a great central location, with lots and lots of activities and many sports to watch and gamble on!  If you’re not into gambling, find a winery with a golf course. Many hotels will have a conference room that can accommodate you.

      Our Replica Fantasy Football Trophy is a best seller, any winner would be proud to display!

      For any location, make sure your fantasy commissioner has space to set up your draft board and each player has a comfortable seat and room for their notes and of course, you're going to need to make sure there is wi-fi.  The draft can last many hours, so you gotta make sure everyone is relaxed and comfy for the long haul.

      Will the leagues’ fantasy football trophy be yours this year? Bring your fantasy football trophy on the trip to put on display to up the ante and get everyone excited to start fresh with the new season. Don’t forget that it’s easy to send in your plate to get the new winner engraved each year!

      Good luck Fantasy Players!  Wishing you an awesome, injury-free season!

      Cheers,

      Jessica

    • Guide to Humiliating Your Fantasy League Loser

      Humilating your loser is the one of the best parts of Fantasy Football!

      One way to ensure every player in your league 'brings it' for every game is to humiliate the worst team at the end of the season.

      When punishing your fantasy league loser, it can get brutal.  Here are some ideas of how to put your loser to shame this season.

      Guide to Humiliating Your Fantasy League Loser

      Re-Name the Loser's Team:  My husband's league renames the losing team "The Feltchers" - look it up on Urban Dictionary - for the entire next season.  Jeff got that name for two years in a row...it was two LONGGGG seasons!

      The perfect loser's trophy for the team that sucks.

      Loser's Trophy at the Draft:  This includes presenting the worst team from last year a fantasy football loser trophy or maybe adding their name onto an existing perpetual loser's trophy, where it can last in infamy.  Get fantasy football loser trophies ideas here!

      Car Humiliation: Create a bumper sticker or license plate frame that they have to attach on their car or truck for all to see how much they suck at Fantasy Football.

      Jersey:  Make your loser buy and wear the jersey of their most hated team.  Have them wear it at the draft, the entire season, or at the Superbowl.

      Costumes: Have the loser wear a tutu and tiara at the draft, or make them wear a costume at a bar.

      Other Public Shaming: make them participate in Karaoke (where you choose the song) or an open mic night and prepare to laugh your ass off at them.

      Permanent Punishment:  Some leagues are super hard core and make losers get tattoos, belly button piercings, and other more permanent badges of shame.

      loser_license "I'm a Loser" license plate frame will let the whole world know how much the loser's team sucks.
