The need for awards and recognition will rebound, and in some areas, it already has. In the meantime, awards and engraving shops can turn their attention to products that are in high demand as cities/states begin their reopening measures.
- Sneeze guards/partitions for customer-facing employees
- ID tags to identify essential personnel
- Directional signage and maps
Engraving shops can also expand into markets they may not have previously reached, like custom work for breweries/distilleries (engraving coasters, pint glasses, growlers), weddings (engraving save-the-date cards, bridal party gifts), home décor, and apparel.
Now is also a great time to experiment with different materials and laser parameters that allow shops to offer products they previously have not.
