Here are a few examples of awards we've created for our clients:
Keynote Speakers Award
When American College of Cardiology came to us to design their new Keynote Speakers Award, they wanted something extra special. We suggested combining a 5-3/4" crystal disc with a 4" tall black glass base to allow their logo to really shine. Three years into using our design for the original program, we have expanding it's use into other high level programs such as the one pictured here.
Internal Etch Crystal
Every two years, the DC chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Artists organizes a design competition — AIGA 50 — showcasing fifty of the strongest examples of design produced in the greater Washington area. In past years, Dimension produced the awards as full color images on Lucite. For the 2018 awards, Dimension suggested a new material and method; crystal with etching done in the center using a special type of laser.
H.K. Bentley Award
For this award, we started with a black pianowood base, then added an etched stainless steel plate, topped by a double-layer brass plate with a black top finish, etched and color-filled in white. Next came a raised brass cityscape cut-out, followed by a reverse-etched glass riser.
The designer was ecstatic when she saw the award, since five other vendors told her it could not be done!
Sustainable Range Award
This U.S. Army project required a combination of several materials and techniques. A multi-layer focal point incorporates 4-color digital graphics, screen-printed raised details, and a photocast metal rim. Engraved personalization and a walnut base finished-off this stunning annual award.
Acrylic and Lucite
Versatile materials for creating awards, commemorative pieces, mementos and replicas. Items and images can be embedded while the surface can be printed, etched, or engraved. Machining can even transform the materials into a variety of 3D shapes.
Crystal and Glass
We are proud to offer the finest customized crystal from the best-known manufacturers. Art glass is a great choice for awards and gifts that will become treasured keepsakes. Some items can be etched or engraved directly, while others can be paired with customized bases. Internal etching uses special lasers that result in a striking 3D floating image. The exterior can then be etched with a logo or other personalization.
Stone and Metal
Marble, granite and slate provide a great foundation for a variety of awards and gifts. Plaques, bookends or sculpture can be sandblasted and color-filled for a lasting reminder of achievements and milestones. Metal castings can replicate buildings, vehicles, statues and many other objects. These can be combined with bases and nameplates to create a lasting commemorative, memento or award.
