How to Choose the Perfect Customized Acrylic Awards

When it comes to creating new custom awards and trophies, there are several things you need to consider. Some are quite high-level and strategic in nature, such as the general message you wish to convey and the image you wish to present. Others, such as your schedule, budget, prize size, frequency of presentation, and order numbers, are far more realistic.

Custom acrylic awards are one such quick and cost-effective solution to produce fresh, one-of-a-kind custom prizes for your organization or event. They are also quite adaptable in incorporating unique forms, sizes, colors, materials, engraving processes, and even the embedding of discrete items relevant to the award. 

Factors to Consider When Choosing Custom Acrylic Awards


We have a wide range of basic geometric forms available, but we can also develop unique shapes for your needs. The outer surfaces of the acrylic award may be sliced to produce a unique shape, or gaps can be cut inside the award to personalize the form factor.


Acrylic awards can be translucent or opaque. When combining direct digital printing on the rear surface (front-facing) of an award or embedding an actual object in the award, translucent awards are the best option (both concepts explained below). Colored opaque awards are available in single or multi-color variations.

Digital Engraving

In engraved acrylic awards, Laser engraving removes a small amount of material on the acrylic surface and delicately etches the surface with a soft white hue. A color fill option may be provided, depending on the layout.


Specific 3D items or pictures can be inserted into the acrylic trophy, giving the impression that they are floating inside. Our embedded acrylic awards can be a great way to emphasize the intended communication objective of the award.


Any of the factors listed above can be used to design a unique acrylic award. In fact, most of the personalized acrylic trophies we manufacture are made up of two or more of these personalization methods.
