Compare our personalized chopsticks with Amazon

Posted by on 10/15/2017 to News

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. 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.

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 products 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.

How to get engraving text in Chinese, Korean, Japanese or any other language!

How to get engraving text in Chinese, Korean, Japanese or any other language!
Having your personalized chopsticks engraved in Chinese, Korean, Japanese or other languages is easy! The main thing to understand is that many of the Asian language character sets you may want to use for your chopstick engraving work just fine, but many web forms have problems transmitting them properly. Fortunately the solution is easy.

There are 2 basic ways of letting us know what you would like engraved on your customized chopsticks.  Start by placing a comment for us in the Chopstick Text box when ordering your personalized chopsticks, explaining what you would like. 

Next, you can send us an email after ordering with the text you want in that email. You can include Asian characters in the email, as they will transmit properly. As an alternative, you can email an attachment with your personalized chopstick text contained in either a pdf file (pdf), Adobe Illustrator file (.ai), a Corel Draw file (.cdr). These files are all scalable, so they can be stretched to any size without distortion, which is an advantage.

You may also attach a regular (bitmap type) graphics image such as a bitmap (.bmp) and of course a .JPG file, one of the most common. These are not scalable, but if the resolution is sufficiently clear, we can use these to engrave your chopsticks as well.

To summarize:
1) Note that you will send engraving info separately in an email after the chopstick order.
2) Send an email with either the text, or a graphic (explained above) for your personalized chopsticks.

Lastly, this is a free service we provide, unlike nearly all our competition.
