Crafting custom awards and recognition programs.
Cristaux International was born out of the idea that greatness does not compromise. As an international company, we manufacture some of the world’s most innovative and well-crafted recognition concepts in the industry.
Founded in the belief that recognition should be expertly made, meticulously designed, and built to stand the test of time – Cristaux’s beginnings of bootstrapping, determination and true grit empower and inspire us to expand our vision daily.

With headquarters in downtown Chicago, the Cristaux team collaborates on designs that evoke emotion by celebrating exceptional people, places and things.
Each day, our 25,000 square foot facility in Elk Grove Village buzzes with innovative design processes and production, turning out custom designs that exclusively capture the spirit of each brand.

The Cristaux team has worked tirelessly to create unique, contemporary awards that are representative of our various competitions, while still maintaining a cohesiveness among them that reinforces our brand’s aesthetics.
