Start New Relationships With Groundbreaking Promotional Gifts

Lucite awards are paperweights or custom shaped Lucite gifts that have proven to be an effective advertising promotional item. They are also known as tombstones, because the shape of the traditional pieces are rectangular Lucite shapes. For the financial industry, the printed insert or embedment artwork in the Lucite rectangle or Lucite cube is usually a “tombstone” as seen in the Wall Street Journal. More and more corporate and financial clients are beginning to utilize Lucite as a valuable announcement and promotion tool. These paperweights make great ground breaking gifts for new building groundbreakings and ceremonies. Offering Lucite paperweights or Lucite gifts to your clients, buyers, or team members helps you beat the competition and promote your identity, product or theme in a classic way. Lucite…a professional promotion.
