Financial Tombstones & Deal Toys
Financial and Deal Tombstones are the perfect way to recognise the completion of a project or deal. From celebrating an acquisition or merger, to commemorating a business deal, producing a Financial Tombstone will ensure this success has a lasting impact. Here at EC Awards, we offer a range of different Deal Tombstones in different styles, including those which feature a 3D model object on top of the award to signify something to do with the business accomplishment. We also offer a free, full-design service, so whether you already know what you want your Financial Tombstone to look like, or starting from scratch, we can help.
Please get inspired with some examples of personalised Financial Tombstones below. We have no minimum order requirements and usually take 1-2 weeks for delivery, but for those in urgent need of a quick Deal Tombstone, there are some designs we can turn around in 2-3 days. For an extra information, or to order your Financial or Deal Tombstones, please get in touch with us.
The majority of our Deal Tombstones are created in acrylic (lucites), but we also create these awards from metal, wood and glass. Regarding the content on the tombstones, there are a number of different ways these can be designed. Most of our tombstones we create will feature the details of the deal and the logos of the organisations involved in it. These details are often printed on the front and/or back of the blocks or sometimes within. Another Deal Tombstone commonly created includes an item, card or printed film encapsulated inside the acrylic block. These are often referred to as Acrylic Encapsulations or Acrylic Embedments. A Deal Toy is where a model an item can be attached to the Deal Tombstone.
With a wealth of experience under our belts, EC Awards can be trusted to create the perfect award, whatever the achievement. All Financial Tombstone awards are custom made, but if you’re looking for something a little different, please get inspired by some example awards in our custom awards page.
Financial Tombstones – The Production Process
Our Deal and Financial tombstones are manufactured with lucite (acrylic). These physical commemorative gifts offer a unique and lasting award to individuals, teams and companies. Being physical, they are a permanent reminder of the achievement, which are designed to the client’s specifications.
Designs range from the very basic with a printed text on the surface and perhaps a logo – to the more complex styles such as a metal model, liquid / oil / powder glass droplets, computer chips, financial certificates or artwork.
Financial Tombstones are often manufactured by cutting sheet acrylic to size, sanding is generally required, then polished by hand before the digital print is applied to either the front or back. Shapes can also be cut to size using a laser for intricate pieces and are to a maximum of 30mm in thickness, these are generally clear but, some colours are available. Depending on what is required for the tombstone the acrylic can be manufactured using the raw materials, which are mixed into a gel and poured into moulds. During this process items are also embedded into the gelled raw materials. The moulded items then go through a curing process with heat and in a high-pressure vessel, during this curing any bubbles are extracted. The acrylic is then cut to size, sanded and polished, if required digital print can also be applied to the surface.
Embedding is a very popular process, where an item/s are suspended within the acrylic, this is used to display objects. Acrylic is very versatile as it can be moulded into various sizes, shapes and colours dependant on designs. Tests on embedding items are carried out with a sample given to client for confirmation before processing the order. Other materials for example wood and metal can also be incorporated into the design alongside the acrylic tombstone.
Digital printing is very versatile and can be on the surface of the acrylic or embedded, this can be matched as required for example in corporate colours. Printing can be text only or full coverage from edge to edge. The embedded print can appear as though the text is floating or on card for example a financial certificate.
Acrylic prices are very versatile compared to other products for example: crystal, stone, wood, metal, glass etc. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the tombstone and size.
