Is online shopping the way forward?

Wednesday 14th October 2020

Well 2020 has certainly been an unusual year to say the least. Eight months in and im asking myself what is the way forward for small businesses like myself? With very few people coming in the shop for trophies, I am relieved that I offer other services too. With my engraving services at least I can still make Welsh Slate House Signs, Memorial Plaques, Medal Hangers, Engrave photos onto slate plaques, Custom engraved gin wine and beer glasses. Bespoke medals etc. At least all of these can be sold online, looks like this is the way forward for the time being. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon and next year the trophy trade as many other trades will…

Just because we are only working part time doesn't mean we aren't there for you when you need us

Monday 29th June 2020

Just because we are only working part time doesn't mean we aren't there for you when you need us most. The shop is currently only open Monday to Fri 10am till 2pm. However if you happen to come by between 9am and 5pm and we aren't there please do give us a call on the number on the sign outside. 90% of the time we can be with you within 5 minutes. This may seem a strange way to do business but let's face it nothing is normal at the moment is it? I would rather be called into work (I only live 2 mins from the shop) than sit there all day using electric with nothing to do. Once things…

Exciting News We Now Have A New Online Shop

Wednesday 20th May 2020

With the current covid 19 situation hitting companies all around the world we have had to look differently at how we can still bring in an income here at Severn Trophies.

We have used our time productively during lock down to bring you a fully eCommerce shop on our website.

Covid 19

Tuesday 31st March 2020

Due to covid 19 I'm afraid we have had to close our shop and engraving studio temporarily until further notice. This decision was out of our hands as it was enforced by the government. As sad as we are to have to stop the job we love so much the safety of workers and customers is paramount. We have to stay at home to contain the virus. If you have an order that you need to collect urgently please e mail us and we will do the best we can to accommodate you by meeting at a set time abiding by the 2 metre rule. Let's hope things get back to normal soon as we can't wait to get busy…
