Cristaux International values excellence in everything we do, from material choice to design techniques. When working with acrylic, we exclusively use Lucite: the best of the industry. Our acrylic pieces are custom awards made special for each client. We proudly uphold our unmatched standards and improve our craft every day.
Acrylic custom awards have immense variety. However, most adhere to the following manufacturing process.
1. Chemicals are heated and mixed to form the liquid acrylic compound.
2. Any necessary color is added.
3. The acrylic mixture is poured into a mold and rests for a few hours to harden. If the piece’s final shape cannot be achieved with a mold, we cast a mold for the piece’s size and machine it later.
4. The previous steps are repeated if the design requires different colors of acrylic. Also, embedded elements would be inserted in between pouring separate layers.
5. Once hardened, the piece is placed in a pressurized oven to cure and remove air bubbles.
6. For a piece that needs to be sculpted to its final shape, we now use computerized machines to carve it and ensure precision.
7. We sand the piece. We preemptively size the piece larger than its final dimensions. We do this to anticipate loss during the curing and sanding processes.
8. We buff and polish the piece to deliver a high-quality shine.
9. If requested, we will personalize the piece with finishing touches like digital printing and laser engraving.
Acrylic awards can honor diverse visions, industries, and programs because of the material’s limitless potential. It pairs well with other textures, complements many personalization techniques, and accentuates design details. With this flexibility, molds are meant to be broken. By challenging the status quo, we design and produce unforgettable creations. Consider the following ideas for your recognition program.
An acrylic plaque is a timeless way to recognize outstanding achievements. This type of recognition easily embodies different programs including certification, event awards, and milestone awards. Acrylic can be used to produce the whole piece, a component, or the frame. Utilize this material to reinvent the traditional plaque.
An acrylic trophy can easily adopt diverse shapes and elements of company branding. Additionally, accents can be fashioned out of acrylic and paired with traditional trophy materials like crystal and metal. Whether celebrating your player of the year or hosting a tournament, Cristaux can manifest the perfect custom trophy for you.
