Here is everything you need to know about planning your perfect Crystal Award:

 

Making a Crystal Trophy

Optical crystal is made through a process that involves subjecting sheets of molten material to high pressure to remove air bubbles. This ensures that the crystal is completely flawless once the material hardens. It is then polished, cut, and beveled to create the final design. This process requires hard work and dedication to master, resulting in a beautiful and artistic trophy that the award recipient is sure to appreciate.

When cut and polished in a precise manner, crystal awards go a step beyond glass, creating rainbow prisms when placed under a light. To make high-quality trophies that stand the test of time, we use K9 optical crystals that make our trophies hard and durable. This hardness allows us to create incredibly smooth awards that can be cut and beveled with perfect edges.

The Engraving Process

Engraving is a crucial step in the trophy-making process. Engravings allow buyers to customize awards so that they are more meaningful and personal for the recipient. To engrave a trophy, craftsmen typically use a rotating copper wheel or a diamond to cut into a glass award surface.

At EDCO, we also use deep etching to embed custom logos and text into crystal awards with impressive precision and accuracy. This process involves attaching a stencil to a crystal trophy and blasting abrasive sand over the stencil to etch the design onto the award.

Our extensive experience in creating eye-catching crystal trophies allows us to use both engraving and deep etching to create personalized awards that meet our customers’ specific needs and specifications.

Our experienced artisans have decades of experience creating unique works of art with incredible details and designs. Our awards combine various colors ranging from cobalt blue to jade, red, purple, black, and several others.
