Celebrating 35 Sparkling Years at Crystal Galleries

Since starting out in 1983 a lot of things have changed, not to mention the hairstyles, and in honour of 35 years of trading we have some exciting activities planned for 2018.

To thank our customers, old and new, we have developed some exciting themed offers which we will be promoting throughout the year.

From its incorporation in 1983 Crystal Galleries has always been a family owned and run business which currently includes 6 family members in various positions throughout the company.

Initially the main aim was simply to meet local demand for sport trophies, wedding gifts, awards and promotional items. However, after a short period of trading it became obvious that there was a much bigger opportunity to supply trade customers, including glass engravers and promotional gift distributors, throughout the UK and Europe.

As the hairstyles came and went throughout the 80’s, 90’s and into the Millennium we maintained a steady growth and as a result we outgrew our premises 3 times and we are currently located in a 33,000 sq/ft warehouse in Middlesbrough.

Fortunately, the demand for glass and crystal products grew and so did the need for complementary supplies and services which now include sandblast blasting cabinets, compressors, mask making equipment, APM mask making film and our exclusive SelfAd self-adhesive tissue stencils.

What’s our secret to success?

We try to offer outstanding customer service and endeavour to exceed our customers’ expectations whenever possible. If for some reason we fail to meet this high level of customer service, as a family business, we appreciate that it is our responsibility to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently. We believe that this attitude has helped us to become the leader in our market place and we will work extremely hard to maintain this position for the next 35 years.

This year’s hot picks…

As always we have a vast range of exciting glass and crystal products available on our brand new website. We are also the exclusive manufacturer of the very popular and easy to use ‘SelfAd’ tissue stencils. Artwork for the SelfAd stencils can be produced using our in-house design team, or produced from supplied artwork. Either way we offer a same day despatch on mask orders.

Whatever your requirements, our extensive range of products, fast response times and extensive experience means Crystal Galleries can help you to expand your glass engraving business.
