Humans are hardwired to make others feel special through something that is personal, tangible and unexpected. Corporate end-buyers routinely look for gift items that are attractive, durable or useful, in addition to having the company’s logo prominently placed on the item or packaging.

3D print your way to unique gifts

3D printing is great for customising gifts in low volume. As long as you have the CAD (Computer-Aided Design) file, the design can be produced on-demand, therefore companies can save costs, generate less waste (no inventory needed), and have a design unique to their brand. It works well for branding and marketing, some of the key essentials that help a company stand out from the rest.

Examples of customisable corporate gifts include:

  • Awards: desktop displays, trophies, plaques, team/employee appreciation awards, long service medals
  • Accessories: tie clips, cufflinks, money clips, keyrings
