Your personalized crystal and glass awards are in great hands with Altrum’s team of expert Account Managers and Sales Executives, who ensure your deadlines are met, and your awards are within budget. Our talented Art Team is also available to you to help define and develop the best customization option to make your glass award truly iconic and noteworthy.
Glass trophies and awards are frequently made in classical, elegant shapes with angles that promote their unique form to capture its brilliance with light. Glass can also be molded into any custom shape, allowing for endless design possibilities! Altrum’s glass trophy awards often have polished edges to create the same clear transparency as crystal. Alternatively, to create a more original effect, glass edges can be left unpolished for a frosted finish that resembles ice or snow. Most glass awards are clear as crystal, however Altrum also offers a variety of colored glass that is tinted with your choice of any pantone color. Customizing your glass award with colors gives you an added touch of personalization to its design, for instance to create a special and symbolic award you may want to incorporate your brand colors.
Crystal and Glass Awards Design and Decoration
Glass and crystal awards can be engraved or printed on directly. Laser engraving is a truly custom option that creates a thoughtful and exclusive look, while printing can add a pop of color to make your logo stand out. Another design decoration option is etch and color fill. This method is very popular because it blends engraving and printing. First, the glass award is engraved using a laser, where then the color is applied to the hollow spaces. This method requires a high level of precision and craftsmanship because each color is applied manually. It’s often for engraved awards to have a gold or silver color fill to make the piece embody greater elegance.
Another stunning design option for glass and crystal is 3D etching, this type of personalization creates a hologram-like design inside the award piece. Glass and crystal are the only materials that can be 3D etched, which makes for an exclusive option when customizing your piece. 3D etching is quite popular when working with Altrum’s glass and crystal materials as your trophies and awards will be created to showcase highly accurate 3D elements that look as if they are floating in space.
