Dear Real Estate Agents…

Dear Real Estate Agents,

We love doing work for you.  In fact you are some of our favorite clients because you’re always looking for new ways to stand out in the crowded market.  That’s why we want to work with you to come up with creating closing gifts.  Below are some of the reasons why you should consider working with us:

LatLongSign2

We customize – It is hard to get more specific than the sign above.  It is customized to the exact latitude and longitude point.  However you want something customized we can figure a way to make it look good.  Names, addresses, states, cities, dates, and more are all easily added to wine boxes, signs, beer caddies, clocks, and most wood items.  We do not like stock items so even if you don’t see something on our Etsy site just ask and in most cases we can make it for you.

We can direct ship – People love getting packages delivered to their houses.  You can’t tell me that when you’re at home and you hear the UPS truck come down your street you don’t sneak a peek out the window to see if it stopped in front of your house.   Getting an unexpected package will help you stand out.  Sure handing something in person is great but these people just spent an awful lot of time with you so spark their memory a few weeks after they move into their new home.

We will market for you – We include a thank you card in every package we send out, but if you are sending a gift we’d rather that message come from you.  If you plan on buying items from us on an ongoing basis you can mail us your business cards, stationary, or any other swag and we’ll include it with the package.  Those little details will really stand out to your client.

We offer a real estate agent discount – Message us ahead of time if you plan on purchasing multiple items and we’ll give you your own discount code.

If you nail your closing gift there will be something in your client’s home that will be predominantly displayed that will always have a tie back to you.  Let us be your secret weapon.

Sincerely,

Kevin & Cara Canfield

100 Beer Caddy Challenge

I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to beer caddies.  First of all when I first saw one I fell in love the idea of carrying my beer in something so different.  When we started laser engraving this was one of the first things I suggested we start making and laser engraving.  After making the first one (took me over 4 hours) I was starting to rethink the idea as it was labor intensive.  Then we started getting a few orders for them and then a few more.  Each time we got orders I got a little quicker after building some jigs and coming up with a process.  By the end of Christmas last year I knew I had to come up with a way of mass producing these items to make my life easier.  After all each caddy is eleven individual pieces of wood and making the one by one is a big waste of time.

So in January I felt confident enough to set the goal of making 100 beer caddies in 2016 and at the end of June I am on pace to make over 200.  Mainly because we have started offering them in packs of six for things like groomsman gifts, home brew gifts, or other type of group gift settings.  What makes them appealing is that when you order them from Little Fox Engraving you get to create a custom design on both sides of the caddy as well as pick from 24 different colors of stain.  We believe in making each order as person as possible.  6SixPack5.jpgStain Options6SixPack3.jpg

If you’re ever in the market for beer caddies we can make you one or one hundred.  Just let us know what you need.
