Crystal D Wins Gold and Silver at 2008 PPAI Awards Ceremony
Crystal D, St. Paul, Minn., was selected as a gold winner in two categories and a silver winner in one category at the 2008 Promotional Products Association International Awards ceremony during January’s PPAI Expo, held in Las Vegas.
Crystal D won gold in the “Etching-Engraving” and “Two or More Distinct Processes to Produce a Specific Visual Effect” categories.
Crystal D submitted the crystal Columbus Award, which was both front- and reverse-etched to create a unique visual effect, for the “Etching-Engraving” category.
For the category, “Two or More Distinct Processes to Produce a Specific Visual Effect,” the crystal NASCAR Car was submitted. The creation of the NASCAR piece included modeling the award after Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car. The item was etched with each individual graphic on Earnhardt’s car and then colorfilled to make every graphic the same color as the original car.
Crystal D won a silver Web Award in the “Visual Design/Creativity” category.
“Winning gold in two categories and a silver Web Award is an honor,” said Chuck Dahlgren, president. “Crystal D is very proud to be recognized by PPAI for the hard work we put into every award.”
