Have a party coming up? Want the “most interesting man in the world” to attend? You need a custom prop maker! This is, of course, not the only thing custom prop makers can do—if that were the case, they probably wouldn’t be in business long. In short, you could say that custom prop makers can turn almost any wild idea into reality. This is certainly something we at Big Apple Props take pride in. We are a team of skilled artists, sculptors, technicians, and true craftsmen who love creating amazing props, and we also love a good challenge. We love making the impossible possible!

Okay, so you get it—prop makers can make just about anything. But you may be wondering, what could I possibly do with a custom prop other than wow my friends? Well, if this is what you’re thinking, you’re in luck, because in today’s blog we at Big Apple Props would like to give you a quick crash course on some of the most common uses for custom props.

For Events

Are you hosting an event? Want to make it unforgettable? You need some 3D props! Custom prop makers can build 3D characters, items, sets, and more—regardless of how novel or bizarre they may be. If you need a notable character with which guests can pose or a giant display that accentuates the theme of your event, we can do it. We will work closely with you to create the exact piece you need to wow your guests and make your event a success.

For Trade Shows

Trade shows can be rough. Sometimes regardless of how great your product or trade is, you might not get much attention. With competition so high, it is important to bring your A-game. Custom 3D props can be just the thing to help you achieve this. Maybe you want to blow up (in size) a small object that you sell, or maybe you want something big and bold that will catch eyes and help you get noticed. Whatever effect you are looking for, we can make it happen. Our team has some of the best in the business, and we can work with all sorts of materials to make your fantasy a reality. 

For Marketing

In today’s world, it seems that almost all marketing comes to us through digital platforms. While this may mean that print marketing isn’t as effective as it used to be, it doesn’t mean that all physical marketing is dead. In fact, advertising your product or service via 3D props—real objects potential customers can touch and feel—is quite a novel and effective way of getting attention. And getting this attention can be the thing that differentiates your business. Even if you don’t have a clear plan but like the idea, we encourage you to contact Big Apple Props. We have worked with countless companies, and we can leverage this experience to help find the most suitable prop-marketing strategy for you!

For Public Art

Professional prop makers, like the team at Big Apple Props, are artists. And part of being an artist is supporting other artists and helping to add beauty and intrigue to the world. This is why many prop makers love to work with artists to build public art displays. Our sculptors, metal workers, and technicians can work with all types of mediums and are committed to taking your conceptual idea and turning it into a physical reality.

For Your Unique Event

When we say that we love bringing your wildest ideas to life, we mean it. It doesn’t matter how niche or bizarre your request is, we’ll give it a go! Maybe you need a unique prop to go along with your one-man show, or perhaps a custom centerpiece to go along with your decade themed festival, or maybe you just want to surprise your roommate with a replica of his favorite movie character—just imagine how surprised he will be to find a giant Jar Jar Binks in his bedroom! To put this another way, if there is something you want to bring to life—and by life we mean, turn into a 3D object—we can make it happen!
