How can I accommodate a lower budget project for glass awards?

Just because a customer is in the market for a “lower end product” does not mean that they will get a product of lower quality. It is good to know the possible products available to you so that you can suggest lower cost glass blanks and less expensive techniques to satisfy the lower budgets without having to lower the prices on your higher end products. In fact, it might be a good idea to identify these lower end products in advance, especially if they are not already on your usual product list, just to be ready for lower budgets. If you are not sure what those products might be, a couple of suggestions are curved beveled glass that can stand up on its own and mirror plaques.
