How We Work




Creation of execution plan and pre-branding of giveaways.

Digital graphics and engineering are built out. Production samples for branding and customization options. Client review and sign off.



Attract and engage attendees using our interactive iPads or 22” Monitors.

This is the fun part and the most important thing is to engage the attendees in a quick and professional manner. Using our interactive designer, attendees will customize their giveaway (add graphics, select font, custom text, add photos from mobile phone, drag-and-drop icons, rotate and re-size). Option to add a quick survey on our monitors to collect data from each attendee.



Live on-site personalization of the item.

High speed quiet industrial lasers interfaced with proprietary software to automate the process and speed up the delivery of the finished product.



Organize and scan completed items in booth for pick-up.

Finished products are individually barcoded and assigned a unique job number. Larger items and apparel are assigned a bin/location number to make it easy to locate when a guest walks up to pick up. Product can be searched quickly in our database to determine where the order is in the queue or if it has been completed.



SMS Text Message sent to attendee for pick-up with client branded note.

Each attendee receives an automated branded text message with a unique job number to aid them picking up their personalized giveaway. Text message can also include links to your company as well as promotional literature. This entire text message notification process can be eliminated if you client wishes to forgo this.



Distribution of completed personalized items.

At high traffic activations, it’s critical to keep the process organized and flowing from the moment an attendee submits a personalization request to picking up the finished item. We plan for the storage of finished product not yet picked up so we can efficiently locate the item when the attendee returns. Additionally, we know who has not picked up their personalized item and our system can automatically send out reminder text messages for easy pick-up.
