  • Vibrant colors meticulously hand-painted within the deep surface etching
  • High gloss enamel paints are color matched and applied with extreme expertise
The color fill process consists of hand painting colors within deeply etched areas of text and logos. This adds vibrancy to a crystal award. Exact PMS matching is not guaranteed, but we come extremely close. Logos and designs requiring gradient color are best done using our MicroResolution™ process.

Color fill is best suited to text, designs and logos with solid, non gradient areas. Artisans first surface etch the area they wish to fill, then they painstakingly hand-paint the etched area, resulting in a tight, crisply defined colored area on the surface of your crystal.

Vibrant, high-gloss and/or metallic enamel paints are hand mixed to closely match Pantone® colors on a per-project basis. All colors are recorded for future reference to ensure accurate color matching.

For full-color photos, images with overlapping colors, and images with gradient colors, we provide our clients with our MicroResolutionTM technique. For MicroResolutionTM color, surface etching is not necessary as the colors are applied to the surface using UV printing technology.
Incorporating graphic color artwork onto the crystal as a complement to a subsurface laser engraved design adds another dimension to the award.

Deeply etched portions of text and logos are filled with color using a hand-painted technique. We use various techniques to apply the paints, including fine needles for extremely fine areas. Though we can’t guarantee exact PMS matching, we usually come very close. Our MicroResolutionTM UV print method works best for logos and other graphics that require gradient colors. We can do UV printing on flat surfaces and often inside deep etched areas as well.

Text, artwork, and logos with solid, non-gradient sections are the greatest candidates for a color fill. A tight, sharply defined colorful region appears on the surface of your crystal after artisans meticulously hand-paint the etched area. The colors also look best when done on the rear surface of the crystal awards.

On a project-by-project basis, vivid, high-gloss, and/or metallic enamel paints are hand blended to closely match Pantone® colors. Every color is recorded for future use.

Our team at Crystal Sensations ensures that the color fill will not fade or peel under normal conditions. We use high-gloss or metallic enamel paints that are hand-mixed to closely match the Pantone® colors of your requirement.

We only use high-quality materials, which ensures that we deliver only the best custom crystal awards for your needs. However, keep in mind that the color fill can peel if washed with harsh solvents. Therefore, it is crucial that you clean your award with a slightly damp cloth and avoid wiping with hard pressure directly on painted surfaces.

The process of hand painting in the deep etched text or logo areas is known as color filling. This is a single-color application in any single letter or area because it is not possible to paint in a gradient or blend multiple colors in a single area. To be clear, different parts of a logo can be in different colors as long as each area that is deep etched has been separated from its adjacent area with what is known as a key line, a small, thin “wall” that separates two areas.

Our distinctive hand painted color fill precisely applies acrylic paints to the engraved areas on the surface of your crystal award. It gives your already amazing crystal a splash of color, improving the crystal’s overall beauty and highlighting the custom engraving.
