Reward Your Best With Crystal Corporate Awards

When you need to recognize your best employees, crystal awards are the way to go. A certificate of merit or trophies does not do the occasion justice. It calls for a custom item to recognize these special people.

What Are Crystal Awards?

Crystal Corporate Awards are better than glass. They are exceptional and top-tier items hand-etched by artisans via the sandblasting technique.  The artisans pass the glass through an ultraviolet developing process. This technique allows the artisans to curve details like the receiver’s name and dates on the crystal award.  The artisans shoot sand gently at the crystal to produce the etched feel and look.

Engraved optical crystal awards are the gold standard in recognition awards and mostly celebrate extraordinary people, crucial milestones, and achievements such as recognizing your top player on the sales team. A good-quality optical crystal award from Martin Awards will shine for years to come. For a lifetime, it remains a special reminder to the receiver, and the engraved message will never fade.


What are Crystal Corporate Awards Made From?

We craft our high-quality Crystal awards using optimal prism glass that reflects brilliant colors under light, no matter how tiny. Optimal prism glass is lead-free, is much better than standard glass, and more extravagant than acrylic.

Crystal glass exudes more sophistication and elegance thanks to its simple, elegant design. Most companies and organizations use crystal trophies to distinguish special people, remarkable events, and significant milestones.

Optical crystal is one of the best quality crystals, and its awards are elegant, clear, and flawless. When you need to have your awards engraved or personalized, crystal is the best material you can opt for.

The absence of any lead in the crystal makes it very hard and makes it possible for the crystal to get a high polish and cut at an angle with shiny edges. Using optic crystal in our crystal trophies in different styles shows our recognition for excellence.


Three Things You Should Consider Before Making Crystal Corporate Awards Order

Before you make custom awards orders from Martin Awards, there are some things you need to consider first.

The Award Recipient

Who is receiving the award? Consider this before you settle on the crystal award’s design. Is the recipient a team member in your company or a client? Do you know their personalities or styles?

These factors will guide you in choosing the best design for crystal plaques and allows us to personalize the crystals.  For instance, if the recipient is a golf enthusiast, you can pick one with a golf ball design, and they will cherish it for a lifetime. If they love astrology, you might incorporate some stars.

Key Information 

Three elements that we will include in your crystal plaques order include:

  • A simple and special message
  • Personal information such as names
  • Reason for the award

If you do not have a specific message, our team can create one for you based on the details you give us about the recipient. We draft several statements and let you choose which one you like best.


How Soon Do You Need The Custom Crystal Awards?

For sensitive events like award ceremonies, ensure the customized awards are ready a few weeks before the ceremony and the shapes designed are what you ordered. Last-minute rushes are hectic for your company as they disrupt normal operations.

Ordering from Martin Awards ensures you get your crystal awards ready after five days from the date of order. We take rush orders and can deliver your order in eight business hours if you need to beat a deadline. Place your rush order by calling us at 1-800-745-9375.
