What is custom award production? It’s what CNCROi.com offers, you, we make custom awards using any material (and combination thereof), shape or size to meet your requirements.
I think this needs repeating CNCROi.com MAKES YOUR AWARDS!
CNCROi.com is NOT an import/export trophy shop, slapping a tag, tripling the price and shipping it to you, WE MAKE IT!
Today we’ll focus on only one of the MANY options that go into custom award production, in this case, it’s a slab of maple which was cut to size using our industrial bandsaw, sanded and nailed together (nails are under the award so you don’t see them).
If you wanted something a bit more extensive shape wise, then we can do that too, like this F16 award prototype that was laser engraved on both sides to show you even more possibilities!
Notice the edges of the F16 award prototype are brown, that’s because it was laser cut, this is technically possible to do with our bandsaw but having a wide variety of equipment here at CNCROi.com allows us to use the optimal process for the material and design dependent.
I hope you start to realize the incredible POWER we offer you when it comes to custom award production!
We recently did a number of custom corporate awards using this shape, this happens to be a prototype that wasn’t branded and as such, it was time to use it as a demonstrational piece for YOU to see how we can make the same design either very subtle or as strong as you want using the same design.
CNCROi.com offers you ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES to march your branding and personal or professional requirements, if you are going down the route of custom award production, make it an award worth winning!
Of course, custom award production requires something else that CNCROi.com has plenty of, PASSION!
This stuff takes time to learn, it takes resources to learn and even more to produce something at top quality and if our almost two thousand blog posts (yes, almost 2 000) is any indication, you are in very good hands with us!
As a first pass, I wanted to show you how custom award production can be made very subtle to match your mood and requirements, in this case, it’s a piece of REAL maple that’s engraved a fraction of a mm deep, just enough to be present but not so much as it’s in your face.
Because CNCROi.com MAKES custom awards for a wide variety of purposes, we are able to make things within a huge range of budgets in given volumes and timelines.
This is probably one of the cheaper options we can offer you, with the more expensive being using real maple, and keep in mind that the above award could have just as easily been made using the same maple wood we are reviewing in this demonstration!
That’s incredible flexibility!
Having absolute design and material options at any scale is quite an overwhelming capability that CNCROi.com specializes in.
If you are a Christmas tree distributor, why not make your awards in the shape of a tree like this?
Custom award production has infinite options, CNCROi.com has the expertise, equipment and passion to pull it off professionally in any volumes you may want.
The subtlety of this maple engraving on this custom corporate award looks really nice, the details are sharp, repeatable and totally repeatable.
Repeatability is important, because if you had the same design at different scales or with unique elements on each award in the same or different places, CNCROi.com can do that!
That was fun, so now we are going to engrave the same area, but only the bottom half, going deeper and darker for this custom award production.
Think of it like this, you want your logo to stand out but the name or other details to be more subtle, CNCROi.com can do that realtime and on-demand!
The goal of additional laser passes is to darken the wood, not engrave deeper into it, but to make an even bigger impression, I did an additional pass where the laser was engraving deeper into the custom maple award and then we’ll go over it again (a third time) to darken the wood.
Of course, this is only wood, we can integrate other features such as acrylic and other media into the custom award as well.
And if you are wondering, yes, we can do the same with metal, check out this 304 stainless steel memorial plaque we made, it could have been made in the same shape and welded together by CNCROi.com!
When CNCROi.com says we can make something for you using any material, shape or size, WE MEAN IT!
Now that we’ve engraved the custom maple award deeper, to add extra contrast and shadows to the light engraving above it, it’s time to go nuts and really make it dark!
Custom award production has as many or as few options as you want, it always comes down to budget, volume and materials as to what’s possible for your specific needs.
Our Austrian wide-format industrial laser can engrave straight through this piece of 3/4″ or 18 mm maple, and for some customers, some elements they want this to be done, but for this demonstration, we just want to show you contrasting options on the surface.
Custom award production is fun as each client is unique with their own requirements at the table.
I didn’t mask this custom award engraving on purpose, I wanted to show you the smoke difference between light and deep laser engraving performed by our Austrian wide-format industrial laser.
The above would be fine as/is but the bottom, unless you are going for an “iron branded” esthetic, needs some sanding.
Before we jump into sanding, take a look at the custom award, entirely made in the CNCROi.com shop, so you can appreciate the differences doing the same engraving at two different depths provides.
Of course, CNCROi.com also has a custom designed sanding downdraft table to make quick work of this corporate award!
Another aspect of the CNCROi.com logo is the top part, with the wood saw, DESIGN ENGRAVE CUT BUILD and just like the bottom part regarding the metal capabilities (that’s a metal manufacturing cog representation), just as true and flexible to your custom needs!
Now you can appreciate fully the top and bottom aspects of this custom award production, this is a fantastic demonstrational piece to show you just how incredible our capabilities are for your business, institution or even personal novelty needs.
Adding a bit of lacquer to make the contrast and natural beauty of this solid maple custom award pop, you can now fully appreciate just how amazing a custom award made with passion can be!
Anybody can make a custom award that looks good at a distance, but true passion cares about the small details too!
A close-up reveals just how precise our equipment is, this just looks awesome!
