If you’ve found yourself at the point where it’s time to print your event merch, then you’ve probably already discovered that there are a lot of different options out there. While some of these choices might seem like they’re not worth considering—after all, why wouldn’t everyone just use standard-issue t-shirts and hats? Well, let me tell you: if you want people to remember your brand and come back for more in the future, then customizing their products can be an excellent way to make them feel special. Here are ten reasons why we think laser engraving is the best solution for making those customized memories pop at your next event!
REASONS TO PRINT CUSTOM MERCH
Customized merch is a great way to promote your brand and personalize an event. In today’s world, it’s important to stand out from the crowd, and customized merchandise can do just that. From t-shirts to stickers, you’ll be able to apply whatever color you want or even add graphics or photos for a truly unique look. And with so many different styles there are endless possibilities when it comes to creating the perfect customized event merch!
Personalized promotional items are a great way to build brand loyalty and improve brand awareness. Laser engraving is the perfect customizing tool for items that are unconventional (ie. t-shirts, hats, and bags). With laser engraving, you have the opportunity to personalize products such as water bottles, wooden merch, jewelry, and leather.
HOW ENGRAVING WORKS
Laser engraving is a process that vaporizes materials into fumes to engrave permanent, deep marks. The laser beam acts as a chisel, incising marks by removing layers from the surface of the material. The laser hits localized areas with massive levels of energy to generate the high heat required for vaporization.
To choose the right laser marking process, you should rely on three factors:
The marking’s resistance: its capacity to remain legible under harsh conditions
The laser marking speed: the marking time that prevents production bottlenecks
The material being marked: its compatibility with the marking method
Laser engraving technology is typically used to engrave metal workpieces that will be exposed to various types of wear or surface treatments. Metal engraving works with steel and aluminum (including anodized and die-casting aluminum).
SETTING UP THE LASER ENGRAVER
Unless you’re looking to make an investment and create more merch with this customization tool, it’s best to hire a merch agency to bring the equipment to the event and provide experts to run the laser engraver. In addition to providing the equipment and support, merch agencies such as Family Industries also have designers to assist with the graphic design for your image.

Setting up a laser engraving station also requires equipment such as iPads with available customizations for event-goers to choose their designs.
PERSONALIZING YOUR ENGRAVINGS
One of the best things about using laser engraving at an event is that it’s easy to personalize your engravings. You can add a logo, a date, a location, or anything else you can think of—and you can also add designs such as patterns.
Laser engravers have the ability to create a pre-designed image or a total custom engraving but only if they are text. Text-based engravings are done on-site and are easy to execute for large events, it’s the best way to lure people to your booth at a large convention or festival.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT MATERIAL FOR YOUR EVENT MERCH
When choosing the material for your event merch, there are a number of things you should consider. The most important thing to look at is durability. The last thing you want is for people to come back home with damaged promotional merch.
You also need to make sure that your material can withstand the elements and be easily printed on without smudging or damaging the design. A third thing to consider is cost-effectiveness—if you order too much, it will end up costing more than necessary! And finally, make sure that your chosen merchandise is environmentally friendly by using recyclable materials like glassware instead of plastic cups (this goes for drinks as well).
WHAT YOU CAN SET UP ON THE FLY
In the event marketing world, there are two types of setup: on the fly and in advance.
What can be set up on the fly?
Printing, especially with laser engraving
Laminating, although certain sizes may require planning in advance. For instance, laminating a 3’x2′ banner might be difficult if you don’t know where you’re going to store it until the last minute!
WHAT YOU SHOULD PLAN AHEAD FOR
Here is a list of things you should plan ahead for before your event:
Buying and printing tickets early
Getting tickets in the right format and quantity
Making sure you have enough time for any last-minute changes
Here are some tips on things to do during your event:
Stay calm if you get out of order or have problems with equipment. Keep calm and people will keep coming back to buy from us! We love when people come back, because then they can tell their friends about how wonderful our products were!
If there is ever anything that we could do differently in order to improve our products or services, please let us know immediately so we can make those changes as soon as possible! We want everyone who uses our services to be satisfied with everything we provide them (including copies of whatever they need).
HOW LONG IT TAKES TO ENGRAVE AN ITEM
It depends on the size and complexity of the design. Small items may be engraved in a few minutes, while larger items may require several hours.
If you have 10 or more items to engrave, we can give you a quote based on your order and show you our production time frame.
ALTERNATIVES TO ENGRAVING AT EVENTS
At large events, you’re looking for ways to take your marketing to the next level. You want loyal customers and new customers in your event space to be able to express themselves proudly and freely. It’s important that they feel comfortable expressing their personal style while also feeling like they are part of something bigger than themselves. One way we can do this is with printing on demand, which involves using a new technology that allows us to provide customizations for our customers or fans without having them wait in line or get anything printed out ahead of time. This is great because it allows people who want something extra personal without worrying about waiting around for an hour in order for their item(s) to be customized before being able to leave with them (or letting friends know about their purchase).
This type of customization can be done by creating custom designs specifically designed for each customer depending on what kind of event they went into where we would provide those services available; this could include T-shirts or any other type of clothing item as well as various other items like posters that feature both text & images alongside each other seamlessly integrated together into one single image/product!
ENGRAVING CAN BE A GREAT WAY TO OFFER CUSTOMIZATIONS AT YOUR EVENTS
Engraving is a great way to offer customizations at your events. You can personalize items with names or other important information, such as dates or event details. Our laser engravers have the technology and experience to make sure your engravings are done right every time, so you can be sure that each item will be perfect for your customers.
Engraving is also an excellent option for adding value to items that might otherwise seem too ordinary or generic for an audience member who has never seen them before. By making simple changes like replacing stock text with customized text from something like a sponsor’s logo, you can create excitement around even the most basic merchandise—and make it feel just a bit more special than what they would find at other retailers!
