Choose Optical Crystal Plaques for Lasting Quality
In terms of plaque and award material, optical crystal remains the top-performing option. Unlike glass, acrylic or plastic, optical crystal is heavy but will not crack, yellow or distort light. Additionally, optical crystal has a reputation for being as clear as a camera lens.
When placed in artificial or natural light, optical crystal trophies take on a warm, appealing glow. They also tend to create subtle rainbows due to their refractive properties. Recipients of optical crystal community service awards will love to show them off on display tables or at office desks.
Customize a Plaque for Community Service
Once you pick the right volunteer award from our collection, you can personalize it in several ways beyond merely adding your recipient's name. We encourage you to consider making your trophy as unique as possible, starting with the engraved areas.
DIY Awards allows you to add text and even logos to your trophy. Simply use our intuitive software and platform to arrange your preferred words and images. When we receive your order, we will create your volunteer award to look exactly like what you generated on our site.
Are you unsure what to add in terms of text? Consider an inspirational religious verse or quote, or add your organization's mission. The possibilities are practically endless.
Try Colorfill for Further Personalization
For a nominal fee, our team members will colorfill the engraved areas on your community service award. Colorfilling is a hand-completed process that enhances the look of any areas, such as words or images, that have been etched into the optical crystal surface.
An award with colorfill takes on a whole new ambiance, as colorfilling adds a measure of depth to the plaque's appearance. Check out our before and after colorfill examples on our website for inspiration.
Make Sure Your Awards for Volunteers Stand Out
Your volunteers keep your organization moving forward. Recognize them sooner rather than later with thank you plaques designed with each volunteer in mind.
