custom branding on car

Corporate Engraving Northern Beaches Sydney

Custom branding has been an integral part of a business’ image for hundreds of years. It provides businesses and organisations with the ability to publicise their brand. This helps to raise awareness of what they do and generally, drive sales. Custom items are also popular amongst business owners as they can help staff feel more included as part of a team.

Increase Exposure

One of the most common reasons as to why someone would choose to have custom branding on items is to increase exposure. It’s extremely effective and is used by business people and organisations across the globe. Just think, if you see someone wearing a branded t-shirt or bag, you’ll often remember it. This is the case even if it is on a subconscious level. If your product, company or brand is just getting started, increasing public exposure should be sitting high up on your priority list. An easy way to do this is to create custom items that feature your brand name or logo. 

Drive Sales

Of course, the natural follow on from increased exposure would be heightened sales. It’s no surprise that business owners want to drive sales or that organisation managers strive to increase membership rates – it’s just natural.

Team Spirit

An additional benefit of custom branding is its ability to boost team spirit. This is highly beneficial for staff teams to sports groups alike.

Custom Branding Options

The options for custom branding are endless. At present, it’s easy to design and order custom items such as water bottles, key chains, t-shirts and more. Custom plaques, banners and signage can also help to promote your brand to the public.

Laser Cutting Northern Beaches & Sydney

What is Laser Cutting?

Laser cutting, also known as laser engraving, technology uses a powerful laser to cut materials. It is controlled by files that are made using various Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. Laser cutting is an efficient way to cut through a range of materials, including but not limited to fabric, wood and metal. When the technology was newly developed, it was limited to industrial applications due to its cost. However, laser cutting is now becoming more accessible to the everyday person.

Efficiency

Laser cutting is a much faster alternative to cutting by hand. The machine does not require constant monitoring, instead, it can be left to complete the task while you get something else done. This is highly useful in both commercial and domestic scenarios as it reduces the amount of manual labour required.

Minimal Waste

Did you know that you can easily minimise wastage by using a laser cutter? A classic example of this is when you’re cutting out fabric patterns. By using a laser cutter, the computer is able to automatically determine the arrangement of pattern pieces that will result in the least wastage. Not only does this minimise costs and materials required, however, it is saving valuable resources.

No Warping

Laser cutting will not warp your base material. In contrast, many other cutting and engraving techniques will distort your original object. By choosing to use a laser cutter, you are minimising the risk of damaging your object or material.

Precision Perfect

Laser cutting is a great way to cut out a precise design as it is highly accurate. Even intricate designs can be brought to life with this technology.

Versatility

A laser cutter is highly versatile as it works on a wide range of materials. As well as this, it can be adapted for various different uses. Some of these include use for engraving plaques, cutting out fabric patterns, personalising jewellery etc.

Personalised Custom Engraving and Gift Ideas

Are you searching for the perfect gift? Not too sure what to buy for your loved ones? Personalised gifts with custom engraving might be just what you were looking for.

Custom Phone Case Engraving

A custom phone case is an excellent gift for almost anyone in this day and age. Most people use their phones every day so a protective case will be well appreciated. Make it even more special by choosing a custom case, perhaps with colours, words, image or a design that is relevant to you and the recipient. By doing this, the recipient will think of you every day when they go to use their phone.  

Engraved Champagne Bottle

You can’t go much classier than an engraved bottle of champagne. Add a special touch to your gift by engraving their name into the glass. They’ll be able to keep the bottle forever, using it as decor or as a vase for cut flowers. This also helps your gift stand out from the crowd in a positive way.

Engraved Crystal and Glassware

Engraved glassware makes for a great personalised gift, especially if the recipient loves to entertain. Be sure to choose words or a message that is timeless. You can’t go wrong with initials or a short and sweet message. This gift will be put to great use when entertaining friends or throwing the annual Christmas dinner party.

Monogrammed Planner

A monogrammed planner is an excellent gift idea. Although digital calendars are increasing in popularity, nothing can beat putting pen to paper. A monogram is a great way to add a personalised touch to something that is so integral to maintaining order in our lives.

LASER engraving

What’s the deal with LASER Engraving Anyway?

The most common substances for engraving are coated metals, wood, acrylic, glass, leather, marble, plastic, and a host of artificial substances made especially for lasers. It is possible to think of the laser as a source of light comparable to a light bulb – a light bulb which emits energy in a direct manner Unlike traditional etching, laser etching requires no masks or substances. Many people simply call it laser engraving while others call it the future, but essentially the technique works on the PC controlled laser beam to mark a surface. It didn’t take long for engraving businesses to take notice of how new lasers were being used for a wide range of industrial applications including welding, heat treating, etching and engraving.
