At The Gear Group, we often rave about our custom acrylic awards and sometimes lose track of the fact that our awards are truly unique. We forget that not everyone can create custom acrylic awards with unique images, shapes, and dimensions all at an affordable cost.
How are our awards different than others?
Well, for starters, we can design these awards with unique graphics that can print first and second surface. This means some of the design will be printed on the front of the award and some on the back and show through the clear material. This will enhance the background of the design and will create a dimensional effect that is visually interesting and creative. Read more
