Smart Customization Ideas

Our focus for January & February is Customization. What does that mean? Some places, what you see are what you get: a plain carafe or airpot. At Service Ideas, we offer a little bit more.

Pad-Printing_AirpotPad Printing: want to have your color logo on the carafes your wait staff use, or on the condiment holders on the table? For as low as 36 pieces, we can do just that! We partner with a local source to turn over pad printed products in 3-4 weeks.

Laser-EtchingLaser Etching: if you want a permanent way to showcase what you’re serving, whether it’s “Half & Half” or “Decaf Coffee,” Laser Etching is a service that we offer with low minimums. Available for stainless products only, for 36 pieces or more you can have your logo or text on your airpot or carafe in only 3-4 weeks.

We also have a couple lines of great products that come with a variety of existing color options.

The Stanley® line of airpots and carafes, for example, have a variety of lid options with different flavor dots to denote contents. They also offer flavor indicator socks for dispensing cream and dairy products.


Our Color Me SVAC series of airpots also utilize removable colored lid options to easily swap out and display what you’re serving.


Our newest line of ID Sleeves we designed to work with our S2SN/SSN SteelVac line of carafes to easily identify different creamer options with bright, vibrant colors.


We also offer a couple of products that are made to order, giving you a completely one-of-a-kind product that is specific to you and you alone.
