Factors to Consider when Choosing a Cake Dummy Company
Cake dummies are made mostly from polystyrene and other plastics, designed to resemble real cakes as much as possible. They are obviously not edible, several times cheaper than real cakes and only serve aesthetic purposes. One place where they are useful is in the cake industry. If you own a confectionery shop or bakery and need to display your cakes, you can show dummies to your clients. These dummies can also be used in advertisements. You could take photos of them to represent the real cakes. Cake dummies can also be placed at the entrance or on top of your shop to attract customers. You could also use cake dummies as interior decoration for your bakery or shop because unlike real cakes, they do not get spoilt and are less likely to be stolen. Keep in mind that cake dummies are made from plastic so you should not dispose of them carelessly when done as they will pollute the environment. Read the article below to learn more about some factors to consider when choosing a cake dummy company.
One thing you have to consider is the cost of hiring a cake dummy company. While cake dummies are already extremely cheap, it doesn’t hurt to save even more money when buying them. Cheap cake dummies are made from the least expensive plastics and will be of inferior quality. They are more likely to get spoilt by things like high temperatures, heavy rains just to name a few. Besides, not a lot of work goes into producing a cheap cake dummy. This will make it appear less like a real cake. Expensive cake dummies not only appear like real cakes, with the right technology they could be made to even feel like real cakes too.
Another thing to consider is the proximity of the cake dummy company’s premises. Cake dummy factories deal with plastics and also produce toxic gases. For this reason, they are located far from towns and residential homes however, they still have offices and shops in towns. It is always more convenient to work with a company that is located nearby. This is especially true if you always need new cake dummy designs regularly. If the company also designs the wrong dummies, it is easier to send them back to be remade or ask for a refund. Transport costs are not even necessary if the cake dummy company is within a walking distance and the items you need are small.
Another thing to consider is the reputation of the cake dummy company. As is the case in many other industries, a cake dummy company’s competence will determine how reputable they become. Cake dummies have to appear as real as possible especially if you want to use them for marketing. Dummies that can be spotted easily are not at all impressive to look at and might even repel people.
The last thing to look at is the materials the dummies are made of. Certain plastics are illegal in some parts of the country or world. If caught with them you might end up in jail or pay a hefty fine.
