5 Unique Acrylic Embedment Ideas (That we’ve actually done!)

These creative embedments are awaiting their polish and final preparations.

Embedments are the perfect option to immortalize key elements in a special memory. 

Whether it’s a retirement, promotion, or other significant accomplishment, an embedment is a great way to not only celebrate but makes for a gorgeous display.

The most common items used in embedments are police badges, product displays, or even microchips. 

These make for stunning embedments, but they aren’t the only items you can make a display out of. We’ve come across some exciting embedments over the years. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, we’ve got you covered!

Below are some of the most memorable embedments we’ve worked on.

Film Strips

While not very common these days, film strips are an iconic element of cinematic history. 

Film strips are small, fragile, and easy to lose. But, you can give them the spotlight in your home by sending them in to become acrylic embedments.

We’ve embedded film strips for television shows and movies. 

If you still have film strips, why not give them the Hollywood treatment, and show them off in a gorgeous display? Not only will it look stunning in your home, but your strips will still be easily viewable.


Lost a bet? If you’re especially bitter, you can embed the cash you owe. 

This was an actual request we had in the past, and it’s certainly a creative one! Depending on the bet, this can be a hilarious way to remember the moment.

Money doesn’t need to be reserved for bet-based embedments, though. Cash can make for a fantastic celebratory embedment as well. 

If you’re a business owner, embedding your first dollar earned is a lovely way to celebrate your accomplishments as you’ve grown your brand.

Alternatively, if you are retiring, you may want to display your last ever paycheck.


Yes, you read that right. We once had a request to immortalize gallstones. One of our least expected embedments, gallstones — or any other bodily material — can potentially be embedded if that is something you’d like to have in your home.

Much like acrylic embedments, our bodies are one of a kind and must be treated with care.

Wedding Memories

In all of the craziness at a wedding, it is important to remember as many little details as possible.

One couple came to us with a ceremonial broken glass from their wedding. We took the broken pieces and suspended them to look like the glass was shattered.

This creative embedment captures a cherished and significant moment from their wedding and it’s design looks good enough in any living space.

While we have embedded many happy wedding memories, the Mazelcube makes our list as one of our favorite and most creative embedments.

Police Retirement Badges

Every year, one of our favorite projects is honoring those police officers who are retiring by embedding their badges. We work alongside police stations across the country to recognize the accomplishments of officers.

These creative embedments capture and celebrate the careers of those who protect and serve. Officers or stations simply mail us their badges, and we create a treasured keepsake that looks great in any office or living space.

It is a privilege for us at Acrylic Warehouse to honor officers’ careers with a long-lasting creative embedment of their police badge.
