Acrylic Recognition Award Plaques

We’ve made quite a good number of custom awards. And I think you will agree with me that awards and trophies are an excellent option for recognising, appreciating and thanking people upon their achievements, success or contribution. Acrylic recognition award plaques are one of the award categories that strike many people, especially from the corporate world.

What are Acrylic Recognition Award Plaques?

Let us start by refreshing our understanding of what a plaque is. In simple terms, a plaque or plate is an ornamental tablet, which you fix to a wall in commemoration of a person or event. An award, on the other hand, is a prize you give to someone in honour of an achievement, success or contribution.

A recognition award plaque is, therefore, a prize in the form of a plaque that you give to someone to recognise their achievements, success or contribution. Usually, it has a provision at its back to easily mount it on the wall.

With the above simple explanation, it’s now easy to know what acrylic recognition award plaques are. And these are award plaques we make from transparent glass-like material, which we usually refer to as acrylic. But this material has other trade names like Perspex, Plexiglass, Acrylite and much more.

Acrylic for making awards usually comes in different transparent colours and thicknesses. In Uganda, you will find mostly clear acrylic, which looks as colourless as clear glass. Transparent clear or coloured acrylic is so good for making custom awards.

If you have limited time with strict deadlines for your award giving ceremony, then your best choice would be acrylic award plaques. It’s a hidden secret most clients may not know.

When it comes to making awards: two things happen. There is the machine-making time and hand-making time. The time the machine takes to cut the material depends on how detailed the award design is. But since most plaques have regular shapes, it takes a short time to cut them.

Secondly, fixing the different parts of the awards by hand on the side of the award maker is easy. In a day or two, one has completed over ten awards.

Acrylic for award making comes in different transparent colours. You can decide not to add colour, and still, your award will look so nice with a crystal clear engraving. But if you so wish, you can add any colour to make the lettering and graphics stand out in the colours of your choice. It helps you to make your awards match the colours of your company brand.

Ability to accommodate more words and graphics

Acrylic recognition award plaques help more in terms of content than other types of awards. If you have a lot of text and graphics to add to your prize, this category is your best choice. Their natural shapes give room for accommodation, more words and graphics.
