As you shop for personalized chopsticks for your special occasion, you may find that there are personalized chopsticks on sale in bulk quantities on Amazon for a lower price. (Amazon also has listings for higher quality items in small quantities of course, but the prices are not competitive). That lower price may look attractive, but before you decide, let's see what your giving up in exchange:
Poor quality example is shown below.
Actually, the poor example above is better than some of the bulk (50 to 100 or more) personalized chopsticks offerings on Amazon. To avoid copyright issues we can't post the actual pictures shown on Amazon, but when you find the bulk quantity chopsticks there, you'll see that the engraving quality and chopstick wood quality is worse than even what is shown here.
Compare with our high quality engraving example: these are our Tan personalized chopsticks:
Although touted as "high quality bamboo chopsticks" the Amazon bulk photos reveal the problem instantly: low quality, softer wood (bamboo in this case) always results in inferior engraving results. The "high quality" chopsticks shown there are closer to disposable in terms of wood and engraving quality.
This is why at Laser Image Works, we buy only the very best hardwood chopsticks, resulting in greater durability and vastly better, high contrast, sharp engraving. Even our black tip bamboo chopstick style uses very hard wood, resulting in super high quality engraving.
Using the highest possible engraving settings on the very best wood is why our personalized chopsticks consistently look the best. So you need to ask your self what level of quality you'd like to impress your guests with. Fortunately, with our low prices and free shipping*, we hope the choice is obvious. Also, we have free, fast, in-house shipping. No waiting for the Amazon middle-man to have your order drop shipped from China!
