With our help, you will discover what a deal toy is, why you should work with us, and examples of this recognition tradition. Our team is here to help companies make that moment in the spotlight last forever.
Financial tombstones and deal toys are a type of recognition used to honor a completed business transaction. Accomplishments to celebrate include acquisitions, partnerships, and fundraising efforts. Although some believe deal toys to be more fun and creative than tombstones, the terms are almost always interchangeable.
We know how much hard work goes into mergers, investment banking deals, and corporate contracts. Dedicated to high-quality recognition programs, we are honored to commemorate those achievements. We use our experience, expertise, and resources to create premium and prestigious creations that stand above the rest.
Extraordinary celebrations do not come off the shelf. Instead, they are custom made. Partner with us to see how our process can elevate your vision.

Real estate deal toys are used to celebrate the selling or acquisition of property. These awards often commemorate deals in the travel and hospitality industry. At Cristaux, we tie in details of the property to create a meaningful design. Features include property drawings and natural elements.
What is a deal toy in investment banking? In investment banking, deal toys celebrate business transactions that were supported by investment banking companies. These organizations offer clients financial consulting services. They also act as intermediaries between investors and companies. Learn about the custom awards we made for investment banks such as William Blair and Houlihan Lokey.
Corporate tombstones and deal toys are created to celebrate any business transaction for a corporation. At Cristaux, we strive to differentiate each deal toy by featuring company branded elements. Whether 3D-printing a cow or using corn syrup to recreate oil, we challenge the limits of design to showcase our clients and their brands.
What is a deal gift? A deal gift can be used interchangeably with a deal toy to celebrate business success and milestones. They are awarded to recognize the hard work of employees, clients, and business partners. Discover why deal gifts matter, or explore our custom corporate gifts for more inspiration.
We use the following materials to produce our custom awards and gifts:
Our most popular materials for this design category are 3D-printed resin, lucite, crystal, and metal. Working with crystal is our specialty and frequently requested by clients.
Lucite deal toys are special because of their material, Lucite. This type of acrylic leads the industry for its unmatched quality. It offers great versatility in its many colors, flexibility, and cost-effective options. However, there are various types of material other than Lucite. Consider which one is the right material for your deal toy.
This type of recognition is gifted to those involved in the transaction being celebrated. This may include investors, financial advisors, clients, and employees. True leaders inspire others to achieve, seek the extraordinary, and redefine every obstacle – not as a challenge – as an opportunity. Our complete recognition award programs are unique and memorable no matter what the setting.
