Crystal Awards and Trophies come in presentation boxes - Quality Sandblast Engraving is included in prices.

Crystal Award engraving is an art form that has emerged in the trophy industry in Australia in recent decades.  However the use of glass for decoration and home utensil use has been around for millennia.

Crystal Trophies are at the top end of Glass Awards and trophies.

Decoration and art glass has many forms, such as blown, moulding &slump. In order to personalise a piece of glass it really comes down to being able to engrave or mark it in some way. A good hand engraver, using a drypoint and stipple engraving tool, can create works of art in the engraving itself. These days the common practice in the trophy industry is to congratulate an awardee by name and to further mention the accomplishment. This art glass etching is slow and will cost more. Glass trophies are now being used as an upmarket way of rewarding a recipient for success in their endeavour.

Sandblast Engraving and Etching

Sandblasting is now a common and accurate way to produce a message on glass. The dry-point etch and engrave is too slow, and the product can vary from trophy to trophy in style and execution. In order to keep costs down, it is better to make a mask from art organised on a computer which includes a logo and text. This way the customer can check the wording, logo and layout before the glass trophies are sandblasted
