Frequently Asked Questions about Acrylic Awards
Why is acrylic a preferred material for awards?
Acrylic is a popular choice for awards for several reasons, including its versatility. Acrylic can be shaped, cut and moulded into a wide range of designs, making it perfect for creating unique and eye-catching awards. This versatility also allows for a high degree of customisation, with a variety of personalisation options – including print and casting to brand colours.
Durability is a prominent factor with acrylic. Unlike other materials, such as crystal, acrylic is shatterproof and less prone to breakage. Paired with being lightweight, these awards are easy to handle and ship.
Finally, acrylic is easy to maintain and clean. It can be wiped down with a soft cloth and mild soap and water, making it a low-maintenance choice for awards that will be displayed over time.
Overall, the versatility, durability, and aesthetic appeal of acrylic make it a preferred choice for awards, and one that is sure to impress recipients and last for years to come.
Can you recycle acrylic awards?
Yes, acrylic awards are recyclable.
Although acrylic has a negative stigma as a plastic, the material is a fantastic choice for circularity. Midton has in-house recycling services. For a small fee, we can take your old awards, and put these through our acrylic chipper to be recast for future projects.
How long does it take to design and manufacture acrylic awards?
Designing and manufacturing awards can take varying amounts of time based on factors such as design complexity, quantity, and customisation options. The design phase can last a few days to a few weeks, depending on customisation level and number of revisions. Manufacturing typically takes 2-3 weeks, including cutting, shaping, polishing, engraving, and customisation. Rush orders may be possible but could come with extra fees. Midton aims for efficient processes and works closely with clients for on-time delivery to specifications.

Articles about Acrylic Awards
GAY TIMES has worked with Midton twice now, and on both occasions they went above and beyond to make it an easy process for us. And, of course, on both occasions we were absolutely delighted by the awards they created for our flagship LGBTQ+ event. We can’t wait to work with them on our next idea!
