What Can Be Expected When Buying Customized and Handmade Products?

Customization vs. Handmade

The concept of customization has been adopted by many businesses over the last few decades. It was incorporated to promote exclusivity. Customized products were a status symbol, a vehicle to make consumers with massive budgets feel special.

Handmade products, on the other hand, have been available forever! And when we think of buying handmade products, we rarely think of large corporations like those who have embraced customization.

When we imagine “handmade products” we envision:

  • One-of-a-kind items
  • Personalized products
  • Home-made goods
  • Unique finds not available anywhere else
  • Intricate designs
  • Pieces of art
  • Beautiful objects

Manufacturing businesses, making industrial components like high-temperature seals, ducting, gaskets, and connectors/couplings are not usually the types of makers you would associate with handmade treasures.

But there is a place where these two worlds overlap most extraordinarily: RCF Technologies.

5 Benefits of Customized Handmade Products

Whether you are an individual looking for a beautifully hand-crafted artistic creation like a personalized, hand-carved, wooden chess set or an engineer looking for a custom-built, high-temperature solution to a design challenge where no off-the-shelf product exists, you really want the same things!

  1. Excellent quality
  2. Custom built to your needs
  3. Personalized attention
  4. A human contact who is accessible and available
  5. A partner who is equally invested in a beautifully produced outcome

When you buy directly from the person who creates your handmade item, you know you are going to get exactly what you want.

YOU KNOW at any point in the process, you can pick up the phone and connect directly with the person making your piece!

YOU KNOW when you speak directly to the maker, any questions you have will be answered, because the maker knows their product inside out and will be able to give you the best advice.

YOU KNOW that you will get to partner directly with the maker at every step of the design. You will be able to discuss the particulars and benefit from the professional expertise and experience of the maker so that the final product is a piece of art that will be exactly as you want it both in form and function.

YOU KNOW that your product was made with personalized care, attention, and love. While you are going to receive an item that meets print perfectly, each is also personally checked and inspected by individuals who care about the quality of what they make.

YOU KNOW you are dealing directly with the boss, not a call center employee whose bosses’ boss surely doesn’t know your name or care about your individual needs.

YOU KNOW you are not another number, buying another widget.

YOU KNOW you are a valued individual who will be treated with respect.

YOU KNOW you will be the proud recipient of a product that was designed and developed just for you. A product that meets your specific needs.
