Lovely staff, worked with an urgent timeline (plaque for an urn) and reasonable prices. I would highly recommend them!
Used Aran Trophies last year for a friend golf tournament we do every year and wanted to add a trophy for the winner every year. They were amazing with their communication and just overall want to help pick the right fit for us. Now I’m working with them on a charity event I run and a few attendees from last year’s event have also reached out and have had amazing things to say! Wouldn’t recommend anyone else in Ontario over Aran Trophies!

One of the nicest costumer service experiences I’ve ever had . I missed the ladies name but she was at the front when I walked in and spent over 30 mins picking out a beautiful award for my girlfriend , and helped me to figure out what to say. My girlfriend absolutely loved it 10/10 experience . Thank you
