At Crystal D We Turn Emotions Into Memories!® We do this by creating corporate awards and plaques that produce "The WOW Effect"® for every recipient.
Crystal D strives for the best in quality, which is why each crystal award is deep etched by hand. Glass artisans use their expertise to ensure that the depth of each crystal award is consistent - approximately .02" to .05" deep. Awards are etched on the back or reverse side of the award - this is called a "reverse etch." A reverse etch gives an award more reflective highlights and greater dimension.
Colorfill is used to enhance the imprint on an award or plaque. This process is applied using a needle, spray or buff solution. Colorfill is available in a variety of colors - click on the color palette below to view examples.

Sublimated plates are available on a variety of Crystal D plaques. Full-color art is transferred onto silver, white or colored plates using our sublimation process.
Crystal D has versatile laser capabilities that are used to engrave, etch or imprint an award. This technique is very complex and often requires the use of a computer. Because this process is so precise, laser engraving creates a high quality imprint on wood, plastic and brass, as well as other substrates.
Any 4-color photo may be transferred to a crystal award using the Illumachrome process. Images appear multi-dimensional and vibrant, with plenty of space for personalization. The Illumachrome process is available on many Crystal D awards!
Any image or montage can be hand-painted inside a brillant crytal sphere by artisans who detail photo memories. These artists use keen attention to detail and specialized tools to create brillant awards. Crystal D Hand-Painted Spheres commemorate corporate and personal achievement perfectly.
3D Subsurface Imaging
3D Subsurface Imaging creates a subsurface imprint inside a crystal award. A high-tech laser fractures the body of the award, producing a clear 3D image. No image is too big, too small or too intricate for this subsurface technology.
The Crystal D Illumachrome™ Splash process allows you to embellish certain awards and plaques with a burst of color. These modest accents of color create a custom award with dramatic hues in addition to a crisp deep etch or laser imprint. All of the awards that carry an Illumachrome™ Splash icon are eligible for this very special imprint process.
