About Us

Tri-State Trophies originally began in 1964 as a wholesale trophy business known as Deluxe Trophy in Evansville, Indiana, serving the tri-state area of Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky. The business sold from one family to another and in 1985 moved to its current location, 1200 West Columbia at Fulton in Evansville, Indiana.

Tri-State Trophies has come a long way technologically – from a single hand engraver that required the user to load individual letters similar to a typesetter – to multiple types of computer engravers and cutting edge imprinting processes. As our business grew, we were asked by our customers to provide products outside our typical “trophy store” range of products. As we responded to their needs, our repertoire of products dramatically increased and our ability to fulfill our customer’s needs improved. We are proud to say we are truly a “one stop shop” as we can provide virtually any product our customers can dream up and tailor to their budget parameters.

Our staff have come a long way as well; from one sales person to multiple sales representatives. Our sales team members are committed to providing excellent customer service and can be relied upon to get your product to you on time and within budget. Our production team is a great team; hyper-aware of quality and dedicated to getting your order completed to your specifications. Our art team is truly one of the most creative teams we’ve ever had on staff. This allows us to provide our customers with outstanding graphics to make your awards unique. If you don’t have a logo or artwork for your project, leave it in our artists’ hands and you’ll be amazed by the beautiful, full-color final product.

Many of our customers prefer conventional trophies and we are more than happy to accommodate them. We manufacture our own trophies in-house and therefore can customize any of our lines to fit any budget or style our customers are looking for. Alternatively, many of our customers prefer a more contemporary look or even use wearables as their awards. We are thrilled to offer a wide range of products such as t-shirts, polos, hats and jackets that can be imprinted using a variety of methods to show your logo to best advantage. Items like duffel or garment bags, roll bags and totes are also used as awards and provide a large imprint area to show off your logo. Medals are also hot items; we have many styles in stock at great price points. Custom medals are another item we provide – in many finishes, shapes and sizes, they communicate a special award to anyone receiving them. Possibly the greatest attention we’ve seen in awards in the last few years is in crystal awards. The variety seems endless and the perceived value for a crystal award is very high. These elegant awards can be surprisingly affordable and convey a richness that is unparalleled. Acrylic awards are also gaining in popularity and are affordable and customizable as well.

We look forward to providing awards for your company or organization! Whether you are a one person shop or a large corporation, awards and promotional products should be an integral part of your business plan. Let us help you make your budget work getting your name in front of more customers and rewarding your employees for a job well done. Call us for ideas or a quote today!!
