Options for Low-Cost Glass Offerings

Jean Chen is a co-owner of the awards and glass vendor, Crystal by Design. She joined the family business in 2005, and helping people recognize and celebrate achievements has been her passion ever since.

A popular trend in glass substrates is utilizing thinner pieces of glass on existing designs to lower the cost but maintain the same look. This greatly expands the choices available to those with a limited budget without forcing them to look to a different material. The thickness of the glass is a huge contributing factor to the cost of an item, so even reducing the thickness by a small amount makes a big difference without being too noticeable in the overall look.
