    Anyone here can recommend a good trophy shop? Preferably in Houston,TX. My son's swim team is looking for new trophy shop, because their usual trophy shop jacked up their pricing.

    We do, but not a MM and far from Texas.

    There is a difference between prices being raised and "jacked up".

    Sometimes we jack up the price for a rush order, but raise the prices when our suppliers raise theirs.

    That's a good one.

    Our trophy shop is slammed. But inevitably people walk in at the last moment and remember that they've got an awards banquet that night and we stand on our heads (sometimes) trying to make it happen for them.

    It's actually self-defeating because the "behavior that gets rewarded, gets repeated".

    But yeah, we'll put a sur-charge on crazy stuff like that. But prices are constantly changing in the awards industry.
