In conjunction with their annual smaller awards, PepsiCo requested that we recreate their smaller awards into a large perpetual trophy that would display the names of winners throughout the years.
Now this trophy was huge! Probably the largest trophy we have created to date, it will definitely make a big statement wherever it is place. The total height of this award was almost 600mm/23.5 Inches tall.
Would love to have some a custom perpetual trophy to showcase your employees’ dedication, contact us today to see how we can help!
As part of their all-new release, Nautique wanted 50 exclusive one-of-kind gift boxes to be designed and manufactured. Having made many products in the past for the company, the team once again contacted us to create something bespoke with the same action sports flare we have emulated for them in the past.
Each box was hand crafted by our joinery team from solid American Walnut timber we sourced from our local timber yards and milled down to profile. There is always something special about personally selecting the perfect timber for the job and watching it be transformed through out the process. Our favourite part of these boxes is the subtle continuous timber grain that wraps around the box, keeping the grain continuous instead of using four different parts of timber allows for a flawless finish.
The internal sections of the box were custom cut and tested to achieve the perfect snug fit for the thermos, portable charger, gift cards and lapel pins. This piece was then finished off with a laser cut and printed lid to complete the signature Nautique style. As we design and manufacture our products in house, there is always a great sense of accomplishment with the team when we complete our projects, and this one was definitely one for the books.

Last year we had the privilege of creating some more custom products for the Australian Defence Force School of Intelligence. To be placed in their mess hall, the team had requested we etch the history of the school onto an existing tabletop, as it was the only part of the Canungra base that wasn’t sporting their history within the mess hall. The mess hall was lined with several long tables that had been around for decades so it was a more unique way to engage people than just having old photos on the wall.
Using a pine timber to match the existing tables, the very old photos under went a intense trial and error period to find the perfect contrast to etch the images. The detailed artwork was etched into the top in one session over several hours so everything needed to be perfect. The piece was then treated with a high gloss glass coat to ensure resistance to damage throughout its lifetime. We also took care of refinishing the table frame with a new paint job to bring it back to life.
The feedback from the School of Intelligence was overwhelming as everyone was thrilled with the final outcome. Did you know we create custom furniture pieces? We can create pieces for events & marketing as well as more permanent pieces. If you have a project in mind, get in contact today!
Founded in 1817, Westpac is Australia’s first and oldest bank, marking this year as their 201st year in operation, and as of this year has 14 million customers across Australia and New Zealand. This year we were lucky enough to be contacted by the team at Westpac to create their yearly Christmas cards.
Settling on 3 different designs for the cards, the cards featured red and gold hot foiling with a combination of laser cut filigree components on a beautiful linen textured card stock. We had a fantastic time working with the team at Westpac and were thrilled with the outcome of this job.
It’s never too early to be thinking about Christmas or any special event you are planning, if you have an idea for a special invitation or card, contact us today to get the ball rolling!
Apart from our usual corporate projects we also love to create personalised items for small local clients like these custom wedding invitations.
Our clients were inspired by nature and wanted a rustic feel to be reflected in their invitations for their upcoming wedding. They also wanted to create something that would be a beautiful reminder on the fridge rather than the traditional paper invite, after all most invites are sent out months before the event.
For the main invitation, a locally sourced timber was printed and laser cut with an intricate floral filigree. A printed card with information on the event was placed on top of the invite to soften the overall look; these pieces were then bound together with a length of twine, to really tie back into the rustic vibe.
A beautiful outcome for a beautiful event, the clients were very happy with the unique outcome! If you would like some custom designed invitations for your special event, contact us today and see how we help!
Working again with the crew at The Mad Hueys, we were asked to work with them to create another point-of-sale item to accompany their previous display stands.
This display stand was made to look like an emergency fire box that will be fitted out to hold a beer and a shoe for an emergency shoey, an Australian ritual often undertaken as a bringer of good fortune.
The boxes consist of intricate joinery and completed with a satin emergency red paint finish. The boxes are double sided so they can be placed either on a shelf or in the middle of the room and be viewed from many angles, rather then your average point of sale strut cards which are only viewed from the front. The box features an acrylic panel at the front with printed graphics and text. The lids can be slid up and down so the graphics on the internal of the box and the shoe/can of beer can be interchanged with the seasons. The box also displays large logos on the sides so that even from the sides, the customers will know the Mad Hueys are up to something.

Raw Espresso is a cafe located on the Gold Coast who serves up a great cup of coffee along with tasty fresh meals and juices. Working with them before on various custom projects, Raw Espresso turned to us again to create a custom wooden bike detail for their custom built bike! Isn’t it a beauty!
Using a stained timber, the shape laser cut and etched with retro typography. The finished look came out amazing in the darker timber and it stands out great against the bright blue bike!

Having previously worked with Coopers on their beer tap decals, we welcomed the opportunity to work with them again and incorporated their iconic branding into this A-Frame design!
These A-Frames sit on top of the bar and contain a chalkboard so that specials and custom messaging can be displayed. The timber is an aged rustic locally sourced timber, which creates a surrounding boarder for the chalkboard. We laser etched the coopers tagline into the base of the frame which creates a tactile element for the customers to engage with. Finally, we finished the piece off with the Coopers timber decal at the top. The pop of colour against the dark weathered timber really draws in attention and sells this design.
If you would love to have some custom marketing products designed and manufactured to draw in new customers, contact us today and check out our other point-of-sale projects to spark some ideas!
Located in Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast, the Blue Heron Motel offers a great stay for all kinds of travellers being so central to the many tourist attractions the Gold Coast has to offer.
To give life to the newly renovated motel, the owners contacted us to create some key tags that had a bit more of a modern tropical feel then your average plastic room key. Using an Australian native timber we printed the logo and other information on one side then flipped them over to etch in the room numbers and palm leaf pattern.
We love the simple but effective outcome of these, it will hopefully be something their guests will admire! If you are looking at having some custom yet functional promotional products made for your local business, contact us today to see how we can help out!
Alder Constructions is a construction company specialising in complex projects who have branched themselves into a wide range of disciplines including civil, building and infrastructure construction.
As a way to show their gratitude to their long-time employees, Alder contacted us with a request to create an honour board with the names of their employees who had dedicated 10+ years of service to the company.
This plaque uses a combination of acrylic and custom joinery features, as well as the removable and updatable panel displaying the employees names. It was important in this piece to create a plate that could be removed and updated as it needed to be accessible for future names to be added as well as easy for the client to re-install the plate.
