Acrylics can be fully customized and come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. They are made of high quality plastic and are available in clear, jade, red, yellow, and blue tints. They also have the greatest diversity of forms, with some acrylic awards having uniquely bevelled surfaces, carvings, patterning, and color highlights. Acrylics are quite durable and scratch-resistant, as well as affordable, certain to impress while staying within the needs of a modest budget. They’re easy to clean and maintain. Options include wood bases and metal trim on some awards.
Crystal awards are the premium option of our clear awards. They are comprised of quartz and traces of lead content that create a prismatic effect, beautifully altering the light that passes through them into bands of rainbow and splashes of color. The refraction of light through the crystal creates other effects that are pleasing to the eye, such as mirroring, which is caused by the crystal’s composition and unique lattice arrangement of atoms. It’s possible to screen print on crystal awards, for increased customization options. Each crystal award is engravable, and comes elegantly displayed in a velvet or satin-lined box.
Glass awards are composed of silica and trace amounts of other elements, which are melted down into a malleable semi-solid form and shaped at super-hot temperatures to create transparent, engravable awards. They come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, are available in a variety of colors, and include unique “frosted” options. In addition to engraving, they can also be screen-printed upon, allowing for an even greater level of personalization. A compromise between the flexibility of acrylics and the prestige of crystal, glass awards present a balanced option that is sure to dazzle while meeting your budgetary requirements. We have a variety of bases and packaging options available.
