Lebanon Brew Haha

We were approached by the find folks who are organizing the Lebanon Brew Haha back in 2016 about possibly being a vendor at their 2017 event.  They had never had craft vendors in the past, but wanted to give it a try for their next event.  We’re always willing to give new things a try so we quickly said yes.  We’re really looking forward to seeing being able to interact with some fellow beer/wine enthusiasts, listening some good music, eating some good food, and maybe sneaking away and sampling a few new brews.  We’ll have a wide selection of bottle cap holders (including some new releases), beer caddies, bottle cap openers, and some signs.

We know we’re not the big draw for the event but still we want this event to be very well attended because in the end it’s about raising money for the arts.  Buy your ticket ahead of time and save some money.

 

Get Your Soda There

We mainly focus on the amazing craft beer boom that’s going on across the country, but there is also a pretty neat movement going on in the soda industry.  Just like the brewers across the country there are small soda companies out there that are experimenting with flavors, natural ingredients, and old recipes.  Our friends at Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop (www.grandpajoescandyshop.com) recently asked us to make them a bottle cap holder for their store.  Their candy shop has a Willy Wonka theme so we did it in the Wonka font and it turned out great.  This was a real fun project because I’ll admit I’ve become a bit of a soda fiend lately.  There are often times where I want a refreshing beverage, but still have work to do with power tools for the evening, so now I keep some soda to go along with our normal stock of beer.  It’s nice to have a local place to pick up drinks like Dang Soda, Cheerwine, Kickapoo, and many more (like over 100).  We’re looking to do more with Grandpa Joe’s in the future!  If you have a custom idea please let us know, we’d love to help bring it to life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like a Bakery

Before Little Fox started up I was a sales rep for a medical equipment company.  My daily sales calls took me to nursing homes, hospitals, doctor’s offices, and several other places in the healthcare industry.  In that industry one of the best ways to get time in front of someone is to bring something for them to eat.  Since I didn’t have a huge marketing budget at the time I couldn’t do dinners or lunches often so I settled for breakfasts and snacks.  Over time I became very familiar with every bakery, donut shop, and coffee house in the area.  I quickly cataloged what each of my referral sources liked and figured ways of tailoring these little treats to them personally.  The places I went to the most often were the bakeries that would fulfill my little requests for things like all black and orange sprinkles for a Bengals fan or making an item that isn’t on their current menu for me because a nurse really liked it.  These little special touches made me stand out and eventually increased my sales.

When we started Little Fox Engraving I wanted to set up our shop sort to be like a one of those bakeries that went above and beyond for me.  We have all of our standard offerings, but we love special requests.  We will try our best to make it happen whether it is changing something small to personalize an item we make, asking us to make something they’ve seen on the internet or Pinterest, or coming up with a completely original idea.

Just last night we completed a special order on our O in Ohio Sign.  The right image is our standard sign.  The left one we were requested to put a star where the hometown of the intended recipient is while he is stationed away with the Coast Guard.  Little touches like that are what we love.

If you have any ideas or see something you want further customized please let us know.  We love creative customers and making unique and personal gifts.
