How to Customise a Qua Gift

There are many reasons to customise a gift these days: making a good impression, standing out from the competition, creating something meaningful for the recipient, just to name a few.

From smaller items like trinket boxes, card holders to larger items like jewellery boxes and furniture pieces, Qua may just have what you need for a personalised gift or home accessory.  Depending on your requirements, you can choose from Simple Customisation, Artwork Customisation, and Full Customisation.

 

a. Simple Customisation

Most clients start with ready-made Qua collections, and co-brand or add-on a message onto the gift.  Qua collections are meaningful, and every piece speaks of the artist and designer's story and inspiration.  Choose from our socially responsible, heritage, and oriental collections to reflect the occasion or your company's values.  Simply go through the following steps:

Step 1: Select the Qua product from the Customisation tab
Step 2: Select the Personalization Option of

  • Silkscreen print: do take note of the minimum order quantity required
  • Metal plate engraving: this allows for personalization, such as individual name or if you are looking for lower quantity, but per piece additional cost will be higher.

Step 3: Upload your logo and the time required for the gift to be ready.
Step 4: Wait for our customer service person to follow up with a quote and delivery timeline.
