Our glass awards range from very cost effective curved glass awards to solid high quality optic K-9 crystal awards. All pieces are personalized with either sand carved for a high quality, deep etched, rich traditional look or color printed with our high definition ultra-violet digital printer. Nearly all glass awards are printed or etched on the back (so you look through the glass to read the personalization) to give a deeper, multi-dimensional look to the award. What is the difference between laser engraving glass or crystal and sand carving? Sand carving, or sand blasting, produces a smoother, deeper, high relief etching for a much better, richer look. We take these extra labor intensive steps to make sure the glass award or trophy you present looks top notch and shows the receiver how much you appreciate them.
