Variety of Glass Award Designs

Choosing the right material for an employee recognition award can be difficult. There are so many options, from high-end crystal to budget-friendly acrylic awards and everything in between. To make this decision easier, we have taken the opportunity to compile a short guide providing you with the information you need to make the best selection.

For decades, glass awards and plaques have been a popular option in the professional community, primarily due to their elegant look and the wide variety of customizing options to choose from. The process of making the beautiful award that arrives in your office requires several steps, including:

  • The glass is referred to as "float glass" because it is made by "floating" molten glass on a bath of molten metal.
  • When the glass flows onto the metal's surface, it produces a floating ribbon of glass that has perfectly smooth sides and a uniform thickness. The glass hardens as the ribbon's temperature is slowly cooled down.
  • The glass is then passed through a kiln to anneal it and prevent it from cracking during temperature changes.
  • The glass usually arrives in a large sheet, which we can cut down into different sizes and shapes. Typically, the glass is between .375" and 75" thick.
  • Art glass awards are produced in a completely different process than cut glass awards.

Range of Styles for Every Achievement

While glass is not as pure as crystal awards in terms of clarity, the majority of glass awards are clear (frequently referred to as Starphire) or jade, with a light green tint, glass can also be found in black. Glass can be formed into an assortment of shapes, such as plaques, pillars, stars, and much more.

How to Select Size and Colors

Selecting the perfect size and color for glass awards makes your recognition event special. Thankfully, our custom glass awards offer a unique opportunity to create a truly personalized glass award trophy. At, we offer a guide to help you make the best choice quickly and easily.

Size Selection

The size of the glass trophy should reflect the achievement's significance. For individual accomplishments, choose smaller, elegant pieces. For team or high-level recognitions, opt for larger, more prominent awards. Consider the display space available to the recipients. Smaller awards are ideal for office desks, while larger pieces suit shelves or cabinets.

Color Choices

The color of a glass award adds depth to its meaning. Choosing glass trophies that are made from clear glass signifies purity and sincerity, ideal for any occasion. Colored glass, however, can align with your company's branding or the theme of the event. Blue symbolizes trust and intelligence, making it a popular choice for corporate awards. Green represents growth and success, perfect for sales and achievement recognitions.

Shape and Symbolism

The shape of the award can significantly impact its symbolic value. Traditional shapes like stars, rectangles, and circles are universally appreciated and convey a sense of stability and continuity. Abstract shapes offer a modern and unique feel, potentially reflecting specific industries or innovative achievements. Consider shapes that tie into the event or recognition theme for a thematic approach, like globes for international accomplishments or pillars for leadership awards. Multi-layered or 3D designs provide a dynamic and sophisticated look, perfect for high-level recognition.

Design Dynamics

The design of a glass award is crucial in conveying your message. Simple, elegant designs are timeless and versatile, while contemporary styles can add a modern twist. Integrating your company logo or emblem within the design adds a personal touch, linking the individual's achievement to the broader organizational context. Engraving is a key design aspect, allowing for personalization with names, dates, or congratulatory messages. The finish of the glass, whether smooth, polished, or textured, also plays a role in the award's overall aesthetic.

Engraving and Customization

Custom engraved glass awards add a layer of thoughtfulness and makes the recognition more meaningful. Consider engraving the recipient's name, the date, or a brief congratulatory message. It's also important to consider the practical aspects of the award, such as its durability and ease of maintenance.

Selecting a glass award is a nuanced process that involves careful consideration. Remember, the right size and color enhance the beauty of the award and the sentiment behind it. By paying attention to these details, you can choose an award that genuinely celebrates achievement and leaves a lasting impression.
