Happy New Year! Hope you are excited about what new year may bring. Usually towards Christmas and new year time, we get extremely busy as we produce many gifts for Swiss watch brands mainly those who participate in premium watch fair called SIHH. Many luxury brands work very hard to introduce their new watches at SIHH. Even premium gifts that are given to their clients at the fair come with lots of care and thoughts. It's not a simple journey for them as well as for us who make their ideas happen in China. It's usually months of designing, sampling and preparations but we are always impressed how these ideas evolve into amazing one-of-a-kind gifts. It's just unfortunate that we cannot show these gifts on our website though!!! :) We are looking forward to making many more beautiful gifts throughout 2018 and we are thankful to all of our customers who chose us over many other alternative suppliers. We wish you all a blessed year ahead!...
We are very often given challenging tasks of creating the products that do not exist yet. In order to make them come true, we must utilise all the resources we have, start communicating with lots of new factories and do a tonne of research.
We recently custom designed some marble USBs for one of the luxury watch brands. Having considered marble material to be too fragile to cut, plus expensive material to work with, we came up with a creative solution of using an artificial marble material like CORIAN (Dupont's).
Wasn't easy material to work with at all but we managed to deliver a sophisticated looking product. Reading an article like this gives us a sense of achievement and much satisfaction.
Our current challenge is to produce several items in carbon fiber material. Let's see how it goes! Wish me luck :)
We are busy developing one-of-a -kind gifts throughout the year. Recently we had another challenging project for an old client. We are given a challenge of creating unique USB drive which represents cracked marble.
It was a super challenging process but after the event that these USB drives are given away, it was mentioned as remarkable USB drive, so it was worth all the efforts!
We keep challenging ourselves to be an exceptional gift company. Thank you everyone!
The Times They Are A-Changin' .... During the past 2 years, I have been drawing a lot to capture my days. Today I decided to draw something different.
Old Days - Back in the ol' days (I am talking about 10 years ago!), we would work with just one factory to produce a gift item for our clients. I still recall my first ever project, providing 2000 electronic book lights for a US law firm. It was a very memorable project in so many ways.
Now - Nowadays, our projects aren't so straightforward anymore, perhaps because our product knowledge and experience have grown over the years and our clients demand better designs, higher quality & detailed craftsmanship. It has been a great privilege to journey with our clients, exploring new designs and products to help them differentiate and stand out from their competitors.
Over the years, product development methods have changed dramatically and we have extensively app...
Gifts speak volumes when it is packaged in an nice, elegant gift box. Whilst custom gift boxes can sometimes be expensive, especially when imported paper is used (which by the way, does make the gift stand out from the pack!), it is possible to create elegant and cost effective packaging without breaking the bank.
By keeping the gift box design simple, using contrasting colored papers like black and gold, or textured papers like Saffiano or Epi paper, or applying special techniques like embossing/debossing, UV coating, metallic or holographic foils, gift packaging can be just as visually appealing.
Feel free to contact us if you have any packaging needs. We welcome small order enquiries.
We mark our 11th year anniversary in October 2016. After world-wide design contests, hundreds of logo designs , weeks of selection process, we have chosen our new logo, designed by a great designer from USA and we love its clean modern look.
And one more big news, we will be moving to our new office with nice roof top soon. We are very excited with this upcoming move! When all the refurbishment is ready, we will post some photos.
Using this opportunity, we would like to thank you for all of your support to our business. Without your trust and support, we are not where we are today :)
