Bean Me Up Magic Beans Review (And Alternative Options)

We recently decided to check out the competition and order a tin of Bean Me Up's "Love Collection" magic beans.

Read on to find out what we thought and what you should know about your options for custom-engraved magic beans in Australia.

Bean Me Up Review

First off, we have to say the quality of the beans that Bean Me Up sent us was pretty good. They were all large and plump, they all sprouted and the engravings were all well done.

We can't really fault Bean Me Up on quality.

We do wish that they included just a little more soil in the tin, as it was not really a deep enough tin for the plants to establish a decent root system. As you can see from the photo below, after pushing the beans into the soil, watering them and watching them swell up the, beans were more or less located on the surface of the soil.

This is fine and the Bean Me Up beans will still grow, but it would be nice to have the option to actually plant the beans under the soil and watch them burst up one day with their message!

Bean Me Up Alternatives

Over the past few years, if you'd been searching for custom 'magic beans' in Australia, you could have been forgiven for thinking Bean Me Up was the only company operating in this space.

Well we can tell you this is definitely not the case! Live Love Bean is actually one of Australia's leading magic bean companies, founded in 2014.

All our beans are hand-engraved in our Sydney based workshop, which we believe is a key differentiator between us and the competition.

This also enables us to produce custom bean designs in very small quantities, as low as 50 beans. But what's more, this means we can often help deliver custom orders with critical timeframes very quickly! This is something our competitors struggle to do. Only last week we engraved 1,000 beans in less than a week for a customer with an urgent order.

Live Love Bean also provides free samples for all custom and corporate orders. Go ahead and fill out our enquiry form and we'll engrave your logo on one of beans for free so you can see how it looks!

Final Thoughts

If you're considering investing in magic beans as a promotional product, then you should not only consider Bean Me Up but also Live Love Bean.

The fast, flexible and friendly approach from our Sydney based engraving studio means we could well be the better option for your corporate event, wedding, promotion or giveaway.
