When crystal is in the hands of our expert team, magic happens. Not only do we use the greatest quality, but we know how to work with it. With our precision and craftsmanship, the vision for your custom award made from crystal can take any form. To uphold our unmatched standards, we always achieve the exceptional for our clients.
Crystal is moderately flexible to work with. Due to the material’s low working temperature, it is easier to sculpt and embellish than other materials. However, it does tend to be thinner. Despite its slimness, it can still carry substantial weight.
Depending on your vision, there are a few different ways to shape crystal. We can use a waterjet. This machine uses a pressured water stream to cut through thick materials. We can also shape crystal by using the pate de verre method. This allows us to press crystal into a mold.
When designing and producing crystal awards, we also consider the other materials we can use. A piece made out of crystal is refined and sophisticated. However, this material also pairs well with others like metal, marble, and 3D-printed elements.
How easily a material is processed determines how personalized a piece is. For example, crystal and aluminum have differences in this flexibility. While some aluminums are painted, crystal is personalized through digital printing, sand etching, and embedding. When deciding what to include on your piece, consider the following:
Far too often, clients disregard the significance of personalization. To avoid subpar results, make sure to adjust personalization effects when you first proof the design. Consider other steps to ensure your brand translates to your custom design.
Our in-house personalization capabilities include more than the decoration of a piece. From live production status updates to studio photography, our team works hard to support you throughout the process. Seeking vendors with personalization control is one of our recognition rules to live by.
At Cristaux, we offer a diverse set of creations. However, we are always on the lookout for something new to design. For your project, we’re excited to incorporate crystal in different forms and with other materials. Identify your vision and explore what’s possible.
Custom Trophies are reserved for the fiercest achievers and leaders. Crystal is the best suited material to make a statement. From online gaming events to football tournaments, crystal is the winning material for your champions. Make your piece special with company branded shapes, colors, and content.
Metal gives any award a glossy and polished effect. When paired with crystal, it becomes even more elevated. With the shine of metal and the dazzle of crystal, a piece is undeniably striking. Additionally, metal and crystal both work well for custom statue and sculpture awards.
Glass is a refined choice of material. You can celebrate a new milestone with custom wine glasses or honor deserving employees with personal sales awards. However, it is important to consider the differences between glass and crystal. From clarity to cut, these two materials are not as similar as they may seem.
No matter how unique your vision is, acrylic is an exceptional option. It is a durable yet light-weight choice for any custom award. At Cristaux, we use Lucite: the industry’s leading acrylic. This material is easy to mold and looks cohesive with other textures.
Through excellent production and personalization, our crystal awards are the ultimate solution for prestige and elegance. We work hard to handcraft the best creation for your vision. With crystal, we design beautiful and distinctive recognition pieces that are built to last.
