Looking Ahead

As we wrap up the Christmas Holiday and look forward to the New Year many companies are planning their Award Events.  Whether you order locally or not, most production connects with China in some way.  Be aware of their holiday season which is in February.  

We are encouraging all of our customers to order as soon as possible and hopefully ship by the end of January.  This will avoid the last minute rush.   Crystal Awards are a great way to tell your employees they are worth the beautiful gift of crystal.  

For larger quantities our prices cannot be beat.  We have our own design studio and can make a unique award for your special event.  Amazing crystal awards can be priced as low as $12.95.  Call us today for your individualized price quote.  813-948-6441. 

Who Needs a Crystal Toe Paperweight?

Trophies used to mean trophies.  A silver or gold cup on a base saying you were a winner. Today we have all kinds of ways to thank, recognize, and reward the special people in our companies.  At Company Crystal Awards we get requests every day to make something very specific to represent the profession or company that needs the award.  It is not always the most economical gift but we can make a one of a kind crystal award for most any occasion or event.  If you need a crystal toe we already have made it, a UPS truck done.  Crystal animals, crystal conch shells, crystal pearl oyster awards, crystal fruit, crystal sports balls have all been done to fill the needs of creative people with a vision.  

When planning your awards event don't be afraid to call and ask.  Though making one of anything can be pricey at first, many times the awards are used for years and the cost spread over time becomes very budget friendly.  And....if you are looking for large quantities of awards we have the best prices you can find.

Years of service Awards seem to be trending for us right now.  We have had several inquiries on designing an award for years of service.

We currently have a crystal number one award.  Can we do other numbers in crystal to celebrate the number of years your employee has been with your company?  Most definitely.

 Some companies want to design crystal steps to add to a piece to show years of service.  The possibilities are limitless.

Time is Running Out

Merry Christmas!  The year is flying by and you still have not ordered Christmas gifts or Company Awards.  Give a classic and elegant trophy or gift in crystal.  We can make almost any design in crystal.

No matter what you decide the fact is that almost everything in some way is connected to China. And, their holiday is at the beginning of 2015.  Chinese New Year is February 17-27th.

What you may not know is the workers in China travel and live far away from their families all year long.  During Chinese New Year they travel home to see their family.  Which means that many workers leave before the 17th and travel back after the 27th.  They extend their holiday longer just like we do many times.  

To be on the safe side all orders for crystal awards or anything else should be placed now or as soon as possible.

The sales meeting you have to recognize your top employees and celebrate their successes in January, February, and March will need awards.  Why not make it crystal clocks for retirements, crystal paperweights for a budget friendly gift, crystal peaches for those in Georgia, crystal apples for New York companies, crystal animal trophies, or crystal sports balls. Adidas gives out a beautiful crystal soccer ball every year.  What is your business about?  Make it everlasting with stunning crystal awards by Company Crystal Awards.

Your Awards Event

I often find myself admiring God's sense of humor.  I have never in my life received an award and here I am selling crystal awards.  I married a Swede that grew up in the crystal factories and now sells crystal awards.  I am so thankful that I sell elegant crystal awards that I can feel good about.  If I had to sell tacky plastic trophies I would be in trouble.  

As the end of the year approaches, I hope that  you are thinking about what kind of award you want to present to the very special people in your company.   We can make a custom award that showcases the personality of your company.  Make your awards presentation unique and special.  Call us with your dreams and we will turn it into a stunning crystal award that can be displayed proudly!

Crystal Christmas Ornaments...Tis the Season

Posted by deb47779 on November 14, 2014 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I was in the store yesterday looking for Thanksgiving supplies.  I was surprised to see that most of Thanksgiving is gone, and you can only find Christmas items. Christmas is definitely in full swing!

At Company Crystal Awards we are selling hundreds of crystal Christmas ornaments.  Some companies like to have their logo engraved, others like a snow or Santa scene etched in the crystal ornament.  The results are stunning, and it is a low budget crystal gift or award to give out during the holidays.

Fund raisers are also ordering crystal ornaments for the season.  Each of our optic crystal ornaments comes in a black gift box and makes an elegant presentation!  

Because the ornaments are customized and totally handmade, place your order early and impress your employees, customers, and friends.

Also, don't forget about your end of the year awards. We have a wide selection of corporate awards and customize any piece to fit your needs and budget. 


Owner of Company Crystal Awards History

Posted by deb47779 on March 5, 2014 at 7:30 AM Comments comments (1)

Meet Peter...

I was born and raised in Kosta Boda, Sweden.  Kosta Boda is famous for its crystal factory. Sweden is famous for soccer.  My nickname was "Kosta", and I played soccer and worked in the crystal factory with my family. I played for one of Sweden's best teams at the time & Kosta-Boda became my sponsor when I moved from a 5th division team to a top division team at age 17. I spent a lot of time in the Kosta-Boda Crystal factory & learned a great deal in all aspects of crystal making.

I came to the United States in 1979 to play professional soccer for the San Diego Soccers .  While working thru challenges with a Visa, I ended up at the University of Tampa  playing soccer and winning the national championship in 1981.  This is also where I met my wife of 31 years.  I was drafted to the Witchita Wings going as #2 in first round, and ended up playing with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.   After soccer, my business choice was simple.   I used my knowledge of crystal to design, create, and import crystal to the USA.  Back then I hand cut lead crystal in my garage and sold it to gift shops and country clubs.  The crystal business fit nicely with my soccer background since I was used to traveling the world to play soccer and now I could travel to find the finest crystal products at the best prices.  I have connections with crystal factories in Sweden, Poland, and Romania.  My current studio is in China.  I have taken the knowledge I have from my family that has worked in the crystal factory for generations and I have trained my own people in China to produce crystal products following my high standard of quality and perfection.
