What or who is STAN?

STAN is the first fully customizable standing desk. Meaning you design and create to your own individual body dimensions. Every user also has the freedom to choose their own colour, logo engraving, and much more.

STAN is made in three separate parts, which easily assemble into a raised work surface. It’s an ideal solution for people that work remotely or in office environments that emphasize dynamic interaction like an Agile standing meeting. STAN is also lasercut and made only on-demand, so except for your health you’re also rewarding our planet, that’s a win-win situation right there!

But why a standing desk? 

Firstly, because standing desks are cool – and the benefits of standing over sitting are proven: standing desk users burn up to 350 additional calories a day than their colleagues who remain sitting. STAN is lasercut to the exact specifications to suit the consumer’s height. It can also be branded, colored, and adapted to the tastes of the consumer or to suit an office’s design.

Stand out from the crowd with our exclusive Cufflinks Collection!

In a world where grey, blue and black suits are dominant, standing out from the crowd isn’t always that easy. Agreed, men can switch it up by wearing a “special” tie. Or maybe a pocket square can set yourself apart from others. Unfortunately these two suggestions have a high chance of making you look very silly. Some can pull it off, but many have failed.

A far more subtle way to spice up your suit game is the Cufflink. An underrated suit accessory that’s is finally finding it’s way out of the dusty men’s apparel shop and into mainstream fashion.

Simplicity rules: have a look at our 3D printed sports trophies.

Trophies and sport competitions have always been connected to one another. The ancient Romans started this long tradition by handing out chalices (footed cups intended to hold a drink) to winners of sport competitions. These would often be filled with delicious wine or other (alcoholic) beverages. Sounds like a pretty good tradition, so it stuck around.

These Chalices already looked quite alike to the classic Cup Trophy that we all know today. Cup trophies are the most typical kind of trophies and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Think about the champion’s league, maybe one of the most classic trophy designs out there. Thanks to the shape of the handles, the trophy has earned it the nickname of “big ears” in multiple languages. The award itself is made out of pure silver and weighs more than 11 KG!

But now for something completely different. That’s why they created our own take on the classic Cup Trophy in 3D print. What do you think? A bit smaller, light weight and far less bling bling. Simplicity rules in all of our designs here at 3D trophy factory.

Not only Cup Trophies are perfect for sport competitions. Our Football Trophy takes the sport quite literarily. A nice change from the classic trophies isn’t it? Same goes for our Baseball trophy and Sneaker Trophy. Of course all prints have multiple colour options and anyone can upload their own artwork to be displayed on the wooden foot. Buying custom made trophies has never been easier and quicker. Curious to see what else we have in stock? Visit our webshop and find out.

Multi-brand retailer JUTTU can call itself the proud winner of the bpost Omnichannel Award 2017.

Omnichannel is a recent strategy that is used to increase customer experience, by making a full integration between the online and offline channels. That way customers can choose which channel they want to use, and they can easily switch from one channel to another. Every channel offers the same information source, experience, pricing… JUTTU won the award because the retailer succeeded in positioning the customer as a central point in their strategy and letting the different channels move around the customer. The multi-brand retailer offers the offline store experience also in the online webshops.

Why your employees need to be awarded too.

The trophy-making business can be very awarding (pun intended). We make things everybody loves to get.

And we’ve made them for tons of different occasions; business events, gaming tournaments, marketing awards, golf tournaments and many more.

We saw that our clients are keen to make sure their winners have an memorable experience. We’re asked to design the most crazy and original trophies that are handed out in top-notch award shows. When we see the end-result and pictures of the happy winners, we always feel very proud to be part of such happy moments.

Yet in every company, there are hidden winners that also deserve recognition. People that give their best everyday to deliver the best service or product possible. It’s important to remember that a company’s internal audience is as important as their external audience. Employees need to be recognized for their work, this is essential for every exceptional work place.

Awards are a perfect way to express recognition, for the simple reason that prizes are designed to produce more effort, to give people something to strive towards. This is of great importance in every company, because appreciation is a fundamental human need.

Agreed, there are performance evaluations, year-end reviews and touch-points. These are all moments where an employer has the opportunity to praise an employee for their good work, but nothing says ‘thank you’ more clearly then a beautiful, shiny (3D printed) award.

So if you need some inspiration in how to start your own internal awards program, we are happy to present some of our past projects and collaborations :

1. A company’s anniversary.

The Belgian company Twikit recently celebrated their 4th anniversary, and because companies have birthdays too, the team organized a surprise party. Complete with decorations, balloons, pizza and a 3D printed award with a real candle, the birthday bash was one to remember.

2.  Reaching a sales target.

Reaching a sales target is often seen a milestone. Keeping your staff motivated to do even better next term is therefore critical. With that in mind, we’ve created this simple yet elegant text totem. Feeling inspired? In our webshop there are numerous examples of easy-to-create text totems and awards.

3. The annual company party.

The annual company party is thé opportunity to recognize hard-working employees. Think further than the obligatory casino night or black&white party, and organize an award show for your employees.

Take the Viacom velocity awards ; they hosted their own internal awards show, showcasing their work into several categories and a grand prix winner. The event is a yearly celebration that combines a fun evening between co-workers with an exiting award show.

4. And pretty much everything else.

There are endless occasions and events to present awards in your company, we just named a few. A co-worker that is retired? Employee of the month? Or award that one colleague that is infamous for their bad jokes? Everything is possible. For a custom award or inspiration, don’t hesitate to contact one our designers. Or discover more in our look-book.
