Everything You Need to Know about Acrylic Awards

These days, many, if not most companies have some type of employee recognition program, and with good reason. It’s a simple, cost-effective way to keep employee morale high, which improves retention rates. Of course, having an employee recognition program necessitates finding good, impactful gifts and awards to give to your star performers, and that’s where it can get tricky. If you’ve shopped around for awards, then you know that some of them can be notoriously expensive, which is the main reason that acrylic awards are such a great alternative.

Companies big and small, whether a startup or an established business, need an employee recognition program to compete in today's business world. Multiple studies have shown that employee recognition can motivate and inspire staff, promote company loyalty, and improve productivity. All of which are necessary for the success of a business. When it comes to employee gifts companies have several options, but many are choosing acrylic awards. If you’re not sure what acrylic awards are or why they are gaining in popularity, here are a few things you should know.

Acrylic has a Number of Advantages

Acrylic has a number of advantages over crystal awards, not the least of which is the fact that it’s so easy to sculpt acrylic into a stunning variety of shapes, which means you’ll find acrylic awards in a staggering variety of configurations of all shapes and sizes. In appearance, it closely resembles crystal, but is both lighter and substantially less expensive, which means you get more award bang for your buck.

Acrylic awards usually have a clarity that exceeds glass, and are only about half the weight. Best of all though, acrylic is resistant to the damaging rays of the sun, which means that awards crafted from the material will retain their clarity and brilliance for years to come. They don’t tend to dull notably over time.

Given their low cost, and their availability in a variety of colors, it’s incredibly easy to ensure that every award you give to your employees is unique. This holds true even if your award program is several years old. New award models are being introduced all the time and you can, if you desire, order totally custom designs which will absolutely ensure that you don’t ever hand out the same award more than once.

When you combine that with the fact that acrylic is easy to etch and engrave, giving you virtually unlimited customization and personalization options, it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular, widely used material for awards. All that to say, if your company is on a budget, and most companies are, and you’re looking for ways to stretch the dollars you have available in your award budget, acrylic is a top-tier choice. It’s incredibly versatile and wonderfully low priced, which leave you plenty of money left over for other gifts and awards to further expand your recognition program.

Acrylic is Versatile

Acrylic is available in several colors and it can be used to create awards in almost any shape or design. These awards often come with stunning accents which only add to their appeal. This allows for a wide variety, making it easy for companies to find the perfect award for a well-deserving employee.

The material resembles crystal, only it is more affordable. This is always good news for businesses that want to reward their staff, but are also closely watching their bottom line. The resin based thermoplastic is typically clearer than glass so the reward has an elegant appearance, while only weighing half as much. Best of all, unlike crystal, glass and other materials acrylic is resistant to sunlight, chemicals and pollutants that can turn other awards dull or cloudy. Since it is thermoplastic this material can be easily heated to create a variety of unique shapes giving bosses and managers a wide assortment of options to choose from.

With acrylic awards companies often do not have to worry about giving the same gift to every employee. There are different types of acrylic, but most awards are made from “cell cast”. This is when the liquid acrylic is poured between two sheets of glass. Most of the acrylic awards given by corporations today are created this way due to their stunning optical clarity. This process also gives the reward a “frosty white image” when it is engraved. While this is the most popular and common type of acrylic, there is another option.

Extruded acrylic engraves clear instead of frosty, and for this reason it is not used to create employee awards as often. It is an excellent way to give cell casts awards a mirroring effect, along with creating other accents. Another problem with extruded acrylic that makes it ill-suited for most awards is its tendency to get “gummy” during engraving. This is due to the heating process that occurs when it is being poured through the die.

There are several benefits to choosing acrylic awards over glass and crystal. Most companies cite its affordability as the main reason that they first considered this type of material, and continue to use it due to its stunning appearance. With acrylic awards businesses can recognize their employees, and stay on budget.
