Electrician Gift – Promotional Paperweight

I recently finished making this resin paperweight containing a lightbulb. The paperweight is one of several paperweights I have been asked to make for the owner of an electrical services company in London.

The electrician who has recently started his company, required several custom paperweights making so that he could give them to his clients in order to advertise and promote his business. The custom-made paperweight contains a real lightbulb and is further personalised with the website address for the company.

The lightbulb paperweight would make an unusual gift to give to present to an electrician, anyone involved in the lighting industry or even somebody who has recently had a bright idea!

World Trade Center stamped coin souvenir

It has been 20 years since the deadly attacks of 9/11, and I thought on this anniversary that I would share a custom-made paperweight I was asked to make earlier this year.

I was sent an elongated coin that had been pressed during a tourist visit to the World Trade Center in January 2001, just eight months before the attack on the twin towers. The coin has been pressed with an image of the New York sky line, complete with the twin towers and the wording ‘World Trade Center – New York’.

Presumably the souvenir coin pressing machine was located within a tourist area of the Word Trade Center, perhaps at the entrance or an observation deck?

I encased the coin within a square resin paperweight and included some lettering to record the occasion. If  you would like to see more of my custom-made paperweights, please view them from the menu above.
