FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Where are you located?
A: Hawthorn Street, Heritage Park, Brisbane. We conduct our operations from a residential property.
Q: What are the business hours?
A: Our business hours vary. If in doubt, send us a query via our website chat, and we’ll let you know of our availability.
Q: Do you deliver?
A: Yes, we can deliver anywhere in Brisbane. Customers can also come to the premises to collect finished products or drop off items.
Q: Do you offer refunds or a money back guarantee?
A: Refunds would only be given under irreparable circumstances. If there is an issue or errors with an order, Beyond Trophies will endeavour to first rectify the problem. A most common cause for refunds would be if we could not obtain the necessary materials for an order to be processed. Otherwise, money back guarantees can be exploited, and Beyond Trophies protects the time it invests and the materials involved in orders.
Q: I have a damaged or worn trophy, can it be fixed?
A: In most cases, trophies can be fixed and rejuvenated. Depending on the circumstances, new components might need to be ordered to replace worn or broken parts. Beyond Trophies offers a restoration service to trophies, medallions, and perpetuals.
PLACING AN ORDER
Q: I have always placed my orders with engraving services via email or phone. Do I have to use the website to order now?
A: We prefer that customers use the website. But if you are not comfortable applying via the website, then please let us know via the website chat which method you prefer.
Q: How do I know what to put on the order and how to set it out?
A: We have guidelines listed on each product page, which help customers place their order and prevent errors. We can also assist you via the website chat.
Q: Can I purchase directly from the website?
A: Yes. We have an ecommerce infrastructure in place, which allows customers to directly order from the website. Updating new products and categories will be an ongoing process, but if we do not accommodate a category, we’ll offer an order form instead.
Q: When do I need to pay for my order, and how?
A: Payment is upfront and via Paypal, Credit Cards, and Debit Cards. We may also support Cryptocurrencies in the future.
Q: Do you offer postage outside of Brisbane?
A: We can post most products outside of Brisbane, though our Free Postage policy only applies to orders delivered within Brisbane.
Q: What types of trophies do you offer?
A: We can provide you any trophy that local suppliers have in stock. We also do custom acrylic and wood trophies, as well as unique craft trophies.
Q: How long does it take to process an order?
A: This question is open-ended, and depending on what we are making and how many we are making, the turnaround time will vary. As an example; an order consisting of 20 trophies and 40 medallions would not take longer than a two days (given that supplies are available and prompt to acquire). Alternatively, perpetuals and name plates can be processed in that same day, but custom acrylic trophies can take one standard day per ten quantity (not including the concept stage and vector design).
Q: Do you keep trophy stock on hand?
A: We tend to keep surplus stock to a minimum. Ask us via the website chat if we have a trophy you are looking for on hand.
Q: I see you also engrave novelty products. What can you do for me?
A: The best way to approach this is to enquire with us. Tell us what you need, and we’ll evaluate how best to approach your need. Just keep in mind, metals and surfaces that are too tough to cut with a knife cannot be engraved with a laser. We cannot engrave music records either, and certain other prohibited materials.
Q: I would prefer to source my own trophies, and bring them to Beyond Trophies to be engraved.
A: You are quite welcome to do this.
Q: Are your suppliers local?
A: Many of our trophy components are sourced locally, whilst other materials are sourced nationally and internationally.
Q: I have a graphic I would like engraved. Can it be done?
A: The likely answer is yes. We have a vector designer and graphic artist in the company, and these types of images are commonplace at Beyond Trophies.
Q: I need some engraving with fine detail.
A: Beyond Trophies uses laser engravers that can go as far as 1000 dpi. Forget CNC Routers, as laser engraving cannot be beaten for vector fidelity.
Q: Can I get job with Beyond Trophies?
A: Presently, we are a small operation and have the necessary roster of skills. We will advertise on our website and through social media should we need additional staff.
Q: I run a business that could benefit from cross exposure. Do you have an affiliate program?
A: We are always looking for opportunities to add to our network, but you should first contact us and introduce yourself.
Q: From the information you collect from orders, do you directly market to clients?
A: Yes we do. Should you not wish to be added to our database, please let us know, or alternatively, click ‘unsubscribe’ to any promotional emails you receive from us.
