Step 3: Production – UV printing and Engraving 

After our client has communicated to us what their promotional idea is, we convert it into a produce-able 3d glass cube. The next hurdle is communicating to the factory.

We have done the legwork for you however, using our preferred suppliers communication is clear and concise using our technical design.

Our supplier then gets to work shaping and bezzeling the artificial crystal. Once shaped, the provided logo and text is printed on PVC, which is then UV blasted to print on the front of the cube. Next up is laser engraving.

The engraving process requires rather complex laser machinery. Line by line the laser engraves the image, based on our design, within the glass cube.

After the engraving is completed, the cubes are polished and we ensure Quality control for each item. This corporate gift can be customized to suit any business. Where here we see a shipping dock, a car, logo, or football court could be in its place. Sport merchandise could be one notable way this promotional product could be used.
