TAP HANDLE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

WITH THE ONER BRAD LUGAR

Q: WHAT TAP HANDLE IS BEST FOR ME? 

A: EACH BREWERY IS DIFFERENT. I PREFER TO START WITH A BUDGET. SMALL BUDGETS CAN LEAD TO SIMPLE DESIGNS LARGE BUDGETS WE CAN GET VERY CREATIVE AND DETAILED, BUT YOUR BRAND WILL STAND OUT NO MATTER THE CHOICE. 

Q: WHICH TAP HANDLE MATERIAL IS BEST?

A: RESIN ALLOWS FOR THE MOST ECCENTRIC TAP HANDLE DESIGN, BUT SOME PEOPLE LIKE THE SIMPLICITY OF OUR METAL TAP HANDLES. ALSO, SOME PEOPLE PREFER THE NATURAL LOOK OF WOOD. It's MAINLY WHAT SPEAKS TO YOUR BRAND BUT IN MY OPINION, IF YOU WANT TO STAND OUT YOU NEED TO GO WITH A FULL CUSTOM RESIN TAP HANDLE. 

Q: WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR MATERIALS? 

A: ALL OF OUR MATERIALS OUR SOURCED FROM AMECIN MANUFACTURERS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US AS WE ARE AN AMERICAN MANUFACTURER AS WELL. 

Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DESIGN AND PRODUCE A TAP HANDLE

A: TAP HANDLES TAKE 6-8 WEEKS TO PRODUCED ONCE THE DESIGN IS COMPLETE. TAP HANDLE DESIGN CAN TAKE AS SHORT AS ONE DAY OR AS LONG AS A MONTH DEPENDING ON THE DESIGN. 

Q: DO I NEED TO GET A TAP HANDLE PROTOYPE? 

A: IN MY OPINION YES. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS OFEN PASSED OVER BY MOST CLIENTS. IF THIS PROCESS IS NOT ORDERED IT CAN LEAD TO A FASTER TURN TIME, BUT WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE TAP ONCE THE ORDER IS COMPLETED. 

Q: WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE AN AMERICAN MADE TAP HANDLE MANFUACTOR? 

A: SUPPORTING AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS SUPPORTS THE LOCAL ECONOMY. IT ALSO PROVIDES JOBS FOR AMERICANS. IN ADDITION TO ALL THAT THERE IS NO LANGUAGE BERRIER AND THE RESPONSE TIME IS A LOT HIGHER. YOU DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH TARRIFIS ON YOUR TAP HANDLE DELIVERY AND IN SOME CASES SHIPPING COSTS CAN BE MASSIVELY LOWER. MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU CAN CALL ME THE OWNER DIRECT AND TELL ME IF THERE IS ANY EXPACTIAON THAT WASN'T MET OR HOW HAPPY YOU WERE WITH THE FINAL TAP HANDLE. 

Q: CAN I BUY A ONE-OFF TAP HANDLE? 

A: ABSOLUTELY! WE HAVE THOSE ON OUR ONLINE STORE UNER OUR SEMI-CUSTOM OPTIONS. THEY RANGE FROM $20-$35 EACH AND CAN BE OUTFITTED WITH MANY ACCESSORIES AND BRANDING. IF YOU WANT SOMETHING FULLY CUSTOM IT'S GOING TO BE A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE BUT WE ARE HAPPY TO ASSIST IN THE PROCESS. 

Q: WHAT IS THE MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY FOR CUSTOM TAP HANDLES. 

A: THERE IS NO MOQ, BUT BE WARNED THE FEWER YOU BUY THE MORE THEY COSTS. I DO HIGHLY SUGGEST GOING WITH A MINIMUM OF 100 IF YOU WANT CUSTOM BUT THE SEMI-CUSTOM OPTION MAY SUIT YOU BEST IF YOU ONELY WANT A FEW TAP HANDLES. 

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR TAP HANDLE PRICE BREAKS? 

A: ECONOMIES OF SCALE ALLOW US TO GIVE QUANTITY BREAKS AT 100, 250, 500, AND 1000 UNITS. I WOULD RECCOMEND STARTING AT 100 UNITS. 

Q: IF I BUY 1000 TAP HANDLES IS YOUR LARGEST PRICE BREAK DO I NEED TO BUY THEM ALL AT ONCE? 

A: ABSOLUTELY NOT WE CAN SET UP A SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE TO HELP YOU SPLIT UP YOUR DELIVERIES OVER SEVERAL MONTHS. WE DO REQUIRE A 50% DEPOSIT ON INITIATION OF THE TAP HANDLE PROJECT AND A CARD FOR PROCESSING. WE CAN DELIVER AS FEW AS 50 UNITS A MONTH STARTING 6 WEEKS AFTER THE DEPOSIT IS PAID.
