Product Spotlight: 3D Laser Engraved Optical Crystal

When it comes to awards and recognition, it can be difficult to find the right balance between quality and price. That’s why we love these 3D laser engraved optical crystals. They are the perfect option for a high-quality and unique award or gift. Clients, employees or donors can be honored in an elegant way without sacrificing your whole budget. Optical crystal is different from glass or acrylic. Since it contains no mineral content, it is perfectly clear and colorless and suitable for 3D laser engraving.

The crystal keepsakes are available in a variety of shapes, from standard squares and rectangles to custom cuts such as waves or diamonds. They also come in functional designs such as wine stoppers, business card holders, or clocks. The 3D imaging options are nearly limitless and each piece is completely customizable. All that is needed is vector or line art of the image to be engraved; there is no set up for creation of the 3D art! Add surface engraved copy to personalize it. Each piece comes in a satin-lined and padded gift box for safe storage and shipping. Gift boxes are available imprinted as well.

The paperweight shown in the video starts as low as $20 per piece, but other options and price points are available. You are able to choose the shape, the 3D image, and the engraved copy on each award. It’s beautiful yet cost-effective with no order minimums.
