The 5/8" thick MDF plaque that's long been available in assorted shapes and sizes is often being passed over in favor of newer, more non- traditional alternatives. Sublimation on metal, including stacked metal (two or more pieces stacked on top of each other) and curved metal (curve into a self-standing award after the imaging process) have become increasingly popular due to their unique look and ease of production. Either approach adds value to the metal while producing a display award at little additional cost. The awards and recognition market also continues to gravitate towards photo products.
