What is Illumachrome™?
The goal of all award presentations is to create an emotion that has a long-lasting memory. You can create that memory with a dazzling Illumachrome™ award.
Illumachrome™ is a process where any 4-color image can be adhered to a crystal award or gift, giving it a multi-dimensional and vibrant appearance. Average awards turn into stellar masterpieces when this process is employed. An image can cover the entire backside of a crystal award, or it can be used as a small accent to call attention to one specific design element. Additionally, the image can be applied using an opaque or a translucent covering, depending on the preference of the client.
Here are a few ideas to inspire some creativity. Don't forget: our Memory Makers are standing by ready to show you creative ideas and FREE virtuals. Just fill out the web form above!
Translucent Illumachrome™ vs. Opaque Illumachrome™
Translucent Illumachrome™ artwork allows light to shine through. A great example of this is shown in the Regatta Award below. We imprinted this award with beautiful Costa Rica-inspired artwork, and the translucent colors of the award shine bright without flooding the whole back of the crystal award. You can learn more about how the artwork came to be on this page. Opaque Illumachrome™ artwork does not allow light through. This type of Illumachrome™ has a white backing that is also a perfect canvas for a second Illumachrome Plus™ imprint. The Wexford Award, shown below, has the opaque Illumachrome™ on the front and the white backing. The third image of the Wexford Award shows the Illumachrome Plus™ imprint with the recipient's name and photograph in the inset image.
