First, a little history. All-Star Trophy was formed in 1981, just up the road in Chelsea, by Bill Brock. He ran it successfully for several years before passing away. At that time, Bill’s son, Deric, bought the business and ran it for another 10 years. At one point, the original building in Chelsea caught fire, so Deric relocated the shop to NeMar Center in Claremore, where it operates today.
In February 2016, All-Star Trophy was purchased by Aimee and Ryan Victory. Aimee handles the daily running of the shop, carrying on the tradition started by the Brocks.
While it’s true that All-Star is still the go-to for trophies, plaques, medals, screenprinting, and more, they offer several products that you might not have thought about. All-Star has a laser engraving machine, and they can basically engrave anything. Anything you want. And what’s better than a fun, personalized gift?
One of the hot items this year is engraved tumblers. We’re all familiar with the craze that started with the Yeti, and now it’s easy to get a personalized cup with a name or logo on it. It’s a great gift for clients, employees, or friends! Best of all, you can get them for less than $30, in most cases. All-Star doesn’t just engrave tumblers; they can engrave glasses for wine or scotch, champagne flutes, coffee mugs, rolling pins, and cutting boards. The window display features personalized leather coasters and whiskey cubes. Wooden monograms to hang on the front door are another unique gift idea. Or you can pick and choose items to make a cute basket of goodies! As far as the engraved items are concerned, you can either bring your own in, or All-Star can handle it for you.
