Why Choose Crystal Award Plaques From DIY Awards 

How do you choose a retirement award worthy of the retiree's years of service and effort? For one, a retirement award should be customizable so you can add a personal message of appreciation. Second, it's crucial to consider the material quality of the retirement gift.

At DIY Awards, we've worked long and hard to design a gift worthy of retirement. Our award plaques are made of 100% optical crystal and feature deep-etched engraving and hand-painted coloring tailored to specific occupations.
