Award Board, the ideal centre piece for a football themed bedroom, began when Dad, Richard James couldn't find anywhere to put the latest additions to his son's collection of football trophies. They began to stockpile on the mantelpiece becoming lost behind other ornaments and gathering dust. Standard themed bedroom accessories simply did not 'work' with the football theme bedroom decor.
Beginning as a family business, Award Board was set up by Richard James in 2004. Initially each Award Board was handmade.
Streamed production process
Originally produced in small quantities high demand soon required a more modern and mechanised production line.
The Award Board is now part of a professional manufacturing and distribution channel and receives interest worldwide.
"Sam played competitive football from an early age, and the medals and trophies of
his achievements meant a great deal to him and the family....... but we were soon
running out of space to display his trophies, cups and medals. We had looked at all
sorts of football themed bedroom accessories and considered many types of football
theme bedroom decor, but nothing was quite right." -
From this 'predicament', the idea for the was born -
