Increase in manufacturing capacity
As we have more and more order both from the Hungarian and International webshop we had to double the number of our machines.
The GiftForge International launched
The time has come to launch the our international shop. The website will be a bit different but the products and the quality will be the same.
Due to the corona-virus and the restriction we decided to move our workshop very close to our home. We did not want to risk stopping our production because of further restraints. We wanted to make this change sooner or later so it was not a problem for us.
First board game convention
We worked harder and harder till the end of the year and at the end we had our first board game convention attendance together with our Hungarian partner the Tarsasjatekok.com.
More products, more partners, more...
The year 2019 started smoothly and we had no problems during the year. We spent our time creating new inserts and making new partnerships. We had our first reviews and videos. The road ahead us was very promising.
New lasercut machine
We started small but as we had more and more orders the time has come to have a bigger laser cutting machine. From 40W laser output we went to 100W with a bigger working area to speed up the manufacturing.
Our first partners
Besides developing and selling inserts we started to build our network of partners to have giveaways and events together. Our first partners were Hungarian Youtube channels and local board game stores.
First insert was releases
We had our first board game insert for Blood Rage. We really loved the process of creating inserts so after a while we stopped creating general gifts and started focusing on board game related products.
The GiftForge was born
The journey has begun with the launch of the www.thegiftforge.hu website. In the beginning we were selling general gifts but as time past we dived deep into the world of board games.
