If you are faced with the job of finding the perfect logo knives for your employees, here are 8 tips to make it easy for you!
The perfect manufacturer. Do you want the knives made in the USA, or imported. It may make a difference in your company.
The perfect price. What is your budget for this project?
The perfect size.Do you want a pocket knife, a sheath knife, or a non-folding knife?
The perfect color. Do you have an important company logo color that needs to be duplicated in the color of the knife handle?
The perfect imprint method. Laser engraving is permanent. Electro etching and pad printing are semi permanent.
The perfect tag line.Is your company logo enough of a decoration on the handle or blade? Do you want a tag line for this project? “Safety First in 2021″, Merry Christmas 2020”, “Thanks for your service” are examples of what you might want to imprint on another location, like the other side of the blade or handle.
The perfect timing. Should you give these out one at a time, or at the Christmas party, or at a safety meeting?
The perfect packaging.Some knives come in attractive boxes. Sometimes a wooden box or metal box is optional. The presentation is very important.
Today is a day where America celebrates its recipients of the Purple Heart. This prestigious award is given to members of the military who have been wounded, killed, or died from wounds caused by an enemy attack.
These service members deserve all of our praise- how can we celebrate them today?
Regardless of the COVID-19 restrictions we face, this 4th of July will be one to remember! Gone are the days where we squish our picnic blankets close together to watch firework displays, and we also won’t go to a crowded parade this year either.
We’re halfway through June, but it’s not too late to start celebrating Men’s Health Month! Odds are you have at least a few men or boys in your family, and of course you want to protect them and keep them healthy. This is a month where we encourage those men and boys to be aware of preventable health problems, and to help them lead healthy lives.
In my experience, I have never found a retail store that is capable of selling pocket knives engraved with your logo. Initials and lettering, yes. Logo, no. That is probably because the equipment needed for laser engraving a logo is much more expensive than a “letter scratcher”. Any jewelry store and trophy shop has one of those machines. The best place for you to look is online. There are a few pocket knife engravers on the internet. That’s the best place to go to get pocket knives engraved with your corporate logo. Laser engraving knives is an art and science. Why?
Not all steel (or wood, bone, synthetic material) is able to be neatly laser engraved. The hardness and makeup of the steel may not allow the job to come out neatly, without a halo burn, and without rough edges.
The imprint has to be the right size and located in the same location on each knife. To do this, a jig has to be made for each knife style.
The timing has to be adjusted to get the best imprinted image.
The laser power has to be adjusted to also get the best results.
The final color of the imprinted area can be adjusted by using certain chemicals in the process. They make the image more noticeable. There’s nothing worse than seeing a silver image against a silver background.
Cleaning up the knife after the job. If this isn’t done, the laser dust can discolor the areas on which it is sitting. This anomaly is permanent, and cannot be erased or removed.
