Creating acrylic deal toys is a part of your everyday life (or work-life at least). We work day in and day out to make sure that the process is as seamless as possible for you. Our goal here is to teach you a bit more about acrylic and why it is a great option for you to work with for your next custom financial tombstones. We’ll discuss why it’s such a great material to use, how you can customize, and 4 simple steps to help you and your team order the perfect set of custom pieces.
This is an easy one! While there are many reasons, we’ll share a few. First and foremost, it is our most malleable of materials. Therefore, it is the easiest to customize. Not only is it easy to create unique and creative shapes out of this material, but acrylic is also able to take any color you can think of. Do you have a specific pantone color needed? We can mix this into the material; easy as that! This isn’t always possible with materials such as crystal or wood for example.
A second reason we suggest using acrylic for your financial tombstones is the weight. This will come into play when ordering many deal toys. We have to take shipping into account when there are many pieces to your order. Think about it: weight is one of the main factors that goes into the cost of shipping. What will be lighter, acrylic or crystal? If you guessed acrylic, you’re right!
One last reason we’ll leave you with is that it’s embeddable. Is embeddable a word? Not sure, but we’ll roll with it! At Altrum, we’re known for many things: creativity, trust, our technology, etc, but one of our favorites is our business card embedments. This is such a hit with you bankers. We take your business card and embed it into a slab of acrylic. This creates a time sake for you that will last a lifetime. Get one for every promotion, every role, etc. want to get one for mom and dad to show them your success? We do that too!
The answer here is always yes. Creating a custom tombstone gives you so much room for highlighting the work that you’ve done. Whether you highlight the deal, or simply the project name, you’ll want your recipients to look over at their acrylic deal toy and remember exactly what deal it was they received that for.
We’ve created a seamless 4 step process to ensure that your custom deal toy is delivered to you in a seamless fashion. Upon taking you through the 4 steps, you can expect the deal toy you envisioned to be delivered right to your doorstep.
As a foreword: our standard turnaround time is anywhere from 6-8 weeks. If you need it quicker, there are always solutions. Just let us know up front!
The first step is to discuss your project with your designated Altrum representative. We’ll have a quick conversation with you about what you’re looking for, your team’s preferences, any deadlines you might have, quantity and budget. Then, within 48 hours, we will send you 3 initial mock-ups and quotes as a starting point.
From there, based on your team’s feedback, we like to say that you should allow yourself another 2 or so weeks to sit with the designs: allow your team members to look and give feedback. Essentially, this is your team’s approval time.
While we always recommend a prototype, this part is completely optional. This would simply be item number one of your order where you can hold it, pass it around, and make sure all text and deal toy is exactly how you want it.
After your final approval, your order will be produced within 3 weeks. We can deliver in whichever way is easiest for you: ship to an office, a closing dinner location, or individually drop ship to each recipient.
To gather inspiration for your next custom deal toys, we’ve got a few options you can browse through. We have our online catalog you can download. In addition to that, we have our gallery on our website! But of course, if you have ideas in mind, all of our designs are complimentary. So reach out and we’ll make your deal toy ideas come to life.
Speaking of acrylic specifically, our online gallery can be filtered a few different ways. One of which, is by materials. Check out our acrylic deal toy gallery here.
