This lovely star is beautifully set off by the black base. We sandcarve these pieces rather than engrave them as the carving gives the text and/or logo a deep, sparking, nearly 3D cut. These pieces can be personalized on star or base. The stars come in a deep blue presentation box - example show is of similar box with different product.
We sand carve these awards (similar to sand blasting but with very fine grit and nozzles) It makes for a lovely deep etch that has depth and clarity. We can paint fill the etching but we think it reduces the 3D look.
