What are acrylic mementos

Mementos are exactly what they sound like: from collectable coin encapsulations to plaques, presentation boxes and preservation — they help you commemorate a person, a place, a time, an event, or an idea. They are objects and memories frozen in time. They are similar to awards, but they aren’t necessarily related to the idea of winning a prize.

Why mementos are so valuable

Mementos preserve a memory or a moment in time for posterity and recognition of significance. Whether you’re looking to celebrate an individual or a group’s achievement or show remembrance of a sorrowful, sad event that must not be forgotten, mementos are perfect. When the stakes are so high, we are confident in our ability as a company to design the perfect commemorative with sustainable plastic for each unique situation.

How Midton approaches designing our mementos

Our longstanding expertise in acrylic encapsulation and material handling means we are confident creating one-of-a-kind mementos from sensitive objects and artefacts, from oil to coins, from Berlin wall bricks to rivets from ancient ships. Think of our mementos as time capsules, holding objects, suspending them in time.
