Crystal Awards & Plaques - The best choice for corporate recognition awards
While cash rewards are frequently used to recognize employees, "non-monetary" rewards that have a physical presence are more effective and meaningful to the award recipients.
Optical crystal awards and plaques, with their incredible clarity, substantial weight and luxurious design styles, are considered the top choice in the recognition award market.
Every piece of crystal awards is hand crafted to its perfection polished to its perfection with exquisite bevels and facets. The award plaques are known for their incredibly clarity, elegant styles and sophisticated workmanship.
When combining the inner beauties of crystal awards with your special messages, you create a personalized award plaque that will be treasured by the recipient long after the recognition ceremony. It is your opportunity to show your associates, clients, teammates and partners how much you value their contribution.
Techniques used for Crystal Engraving?
There are two primary engraving techniques used for award engraving - deep-etch sand carving and laser engraving.
At DIY Awards, we use exclusively the deep-etching engraving technique for award engraving. Every lines and texts are deep-etched by our experienced technicians with precision into the crystal. The engraving process will transform your personal award messages to a smooth frosted white engraving surface.
Laser engraving, a frequently used engraving technique for softer award material like Acrylic and Lucite, is not an optimal solution for optical crystal award engraving. Laser engraving produces a shallow engraving effect that is not aesthetic for optical crystals.
Categories of Award Plaques We Carry?
We group all of our crystal awards and plaques under the following award categories:
Our Classic Crystal Awards collection features some of the most popular crystal designs for everyday recognition. Crystal Sunflower Awards, symbolizing the loyalty and longevity of Sunflowers, are unique "years of service" gifts of radiant warmth. The precision-cut Crystal Flame Award Plaques resembles the shape of flame. Flame awards are ideal for the colleagues or leaders who always ignite the team. Most award plaques in this collection provide plenty of room for recipient's name, a personal recognition note, and your company or organization logo.
