About Us

Our Mission Statement
"Our mission is to continue to provide high-quality products at reasonable prices and to give professional service to ensure customer satisfaction. We will continue to strive towards excellence in our products and services and will continue to grow and enhance our business to adapt to our customer’s growing needs."


Specialty Trophy & Awards has been creating custom trophies and plaques for more than 40 years. Jim Whipple started making trophies out of his basement in 1972 and in 1978, he built the store that we are still in today. Jim passed away in December 2012 and his wife, Marge and daughter, Vicki, have taken over the daily operations. We continue to be family owned and operated. Although the name has changed slightly, our commitment to our customers and community has not.

Specialty Trophy & Awards has been serving the Central New York areas around Dryden, Ithaca, and Cortland for over 40 years. Our shop does service the local and surrounding areas in our community, but we also want to extend that personal, customer oriented service to everyone else who is not able to visit our store. This new website will allow us to reach a broader customer base and expand our services to our existing customers. We will be adding new products to the site on a daily basis and will continue to grow and expand the features and information.

We have a large selection of products for awards and recognition, office and business supplies, high-end gifts, and so much more. We hand select each of our products to ensure they meet strictest quality standards. While making sure we carry a vast amount of traditional products to choose from, we also make sure we include creative and unique designs. 99% of our products can be personalized by adding engraving and images. We also provide a Design Service where we can design and build custom awards to your specifications. Whatever your needs are, we will always find a way to fulfill them and with professional service. Our knowledgeable staff will assist you to make your award as special as the person who is receiving it.

We can handle all of your requests, whether it is for one award or one hundred. We also have a large supply of inventory to handle those last minute gifts and awards. Give lasting treasures with custom awards and gifts from our company in Dryden, NY.  

The Specialty Guarantee stands behind our promise that all of our awards and gifts will meet the highest of standards with a 100% money-back guarantee.
