Acrylic remains one of our most versatile materials, and its application in award manufacture is limitless. Bright colour paired with creative printing gives this award a winning look.
This award sits on a base of solid aluminium. We’ve given the base a brushed finish, achieved at our in-house polishing facility, for a matte, professional feel. Green acrylic adds a pop of colour to the base, corresponding with the top of the award.
The top makes use of layered acrylic, for a design with depth and stability. Layering clear and coloured acrylic allows us to utilise an original logo, creating an award that looks and feels amazing to hold, present and receive.
We have in-house UV-printing technology, with ink that applies directly to the acrylic, and then dries instantly. This award features a dynamic use of print, with the dog logo appearing to float in the centre of the green acrylic ring. This floating print effect is particularly exciting, allowing for creative implementation of branding or graphics. Printed text sits around the edge of the award. In this case, the award was featured on television, and UV-printing allowed for a crystal-clear print that was readable for the audience.
