Why Is There A Setup Charge For Engraved Buck Knives?

Why the Setup Charge?
Why the Setup Charge?

When a business owner orders engraved Buck knives with his company logo, he generally has to pay a “setup charge”. What is this charge for?

  • The art department prepares the art file so that it will be legible at the size available on the knife. If there is too much small detail in the art file, they will suggest alternatives to the business owner.
  • The laser machine has to be set up with the art file. This takes a little time. It is the same amount of time, whether 10 knives or 1,000 knives will be laser engraved.
  • The knives have to be delivered to the laser machine from the warehouse. This also is the same amount of time, whether 10 or 1,000 knives are needed.

So, the setup charge is independent of the number of knives engraved. The price per knife can’t be adjusted for this finite charge. This is the fairest way to price the engraved Buck knives or any other imprinted item.

The 3 Best Uses For Personalized Pocket Knives

Personalized Pocket Knives are knives that have your company logo imprinted on them. Sometimes they have each recipient’s name laser engraved on them. Here are the best uses for these useful devices.

  1. Promotion. You can promote your company. And, this type of promotion lasts much longer than a newspaper ad, or a radio ad. Pocket knives usually last a lifetime. So will your company’s logo.
  2. Gratitude. Show your customers and employees how much you appreciate them. Your symbol of generosity will last many years.
  3. Incentive. Encourage your employees to work safely, and to work for many years. Knives are about the best safety award you can give. The knife with your corporate logo will help to solidify your relationship with your valuable employees.

The 4 Best Features of Engraved Kershaw Knives

Engraved Kershaw Knives have these 4 features that make them attractive to business owners and their customers.

  1. SpeedSafe®. This is the trademark for their reliable assisted-opening mechanism. Once you start to open the knife with the flipper or thumb stud, the spring helps it along. Its function is smooth and dependable.
  2. Flipper. The finger flipper at the base of the blade tang make opening a breeze. It works along with the SpeedSafe® to give you a smooth experience. The flipper has another benefit when the knife is open, and you are using it. It protects your index finger from sliding into the blade.
  3. Frame Lock. Most Kershaw® knives have a frame lock or a liner lock. This provides a safe mechanism to keep the blade from retracting on you.
  4. Personalization. Besides engraving your logo, Kershaw® can personalize each knife with the name of each recipient. Your employees will love you for that.

Fortunately, American Made Cutlery is available at reasonable prices. You can get your corporate logo electro etched on the blades at next to no cost. (Just the cost of the setup)
