Zycus was looking for something appropriate (and fun) to give their clients. Seeing that Engrave had already done some good work for them a few months back, Zycus returned to us for suggestions on how to tackle this challenge.
Very glad to be called on again, we put our heads together and promptly came up with the idea of a magnetic dartboard as a giveaway because not only is it fun to play with, but would also remind the recipient of Brand Zycus every time it’s used.
Once the idea was approved by Zycus, we began work on creating the dartboard from scratch. It had to be classy. It had to be something worth showing off. And it had to be durable enough to be used over and over again.
Keeping these exacting specifications in mind, we chose to use a Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) as the base. On this we affixed a circular Mild Steel sheet in order to give it the quality of being magnetic. Finally, we designed a dartboard with a vinyl sticker using the content Zycus gave us to make it brand-specific.
Also, for each dartboard, we made a set of nine (9) magnetic darts. They were given wooden bodies on which key pointers were engraved. We offered Zycus dartboards in two sizes, i.e., 12 inch and 15 inch; they chose the former and have asked us to manufacture a hundred of them.
All said and done, the folks at Zycus were most pleased with such a quirky, yet relevant product. Perhaps you’d like us to do the same (or something different) for you too. If so, we would be more than happy to hear from you.
