I ❤ Heart Shapes

Heart Pedometer

Next month’s Hallmark Holiday promotes an icon that we see throughout the year. Hospitals, Wellness Programs and Organizations who Care use this most recognizable symbol to promote their cause.

The first thought in promoting these organizations is to look for Heart-Shaped Products that can be imprinted with their logo, and we have plenty of said products to choose from in our catalog. At last count there were 1820 Heart-Shaped products to be exact.

Heart Shaped Products are probably the most requested shape that we get throughout the year because it’s so very effective. A Heart-Shaped anything with your logo on it says a lot without adding a lot of copy to read.

Heart-Shaped Stress Balls, Pill Boxes, Pedometers and Heart-Shaped Notebooks drive the point home every time your customer sees it or, better yet, holds it in their hand.

Embrace the Heart-Shapes. Connect with your customer’s emotions. Let them know you care.

And don’t forget to stop by your Hallmark Store on the way home tonight to get a jump on the crowds that appear at 4PM on February 14th every year.

Thinking Outside the BAG

Cooler-Bag

Memorial Day marks the unofficial first day of Summer. It’s time to clean up the grill, find your picnic basket, and chip the ice off the pool. Sunny days, vacations and fun times guide us all to the weekends ahead.

Conference, Trade Show and Company Meeting attendees all have a bit of Summertime daydreaming dominating their thoughts so summer months are a great opportunity to have some fun with your event bags.

The Advertising Specialty Impression Study shows that over 50% of all people in the US own a promotional bag and each printed brand on the bag is viewed more than 5700 times during the lifetime of the bag. That makes bags the king of all promotional products in effectiveness.

Throughout the year, our most requested bags for Conferences are messenger bags and briefcases but in Summer you can add some fun to your business bags by adding color.

A more non-conventional (pun totally intended) Convention Bag choice may lead to an even more memorable experience for your attendees. Try mixing it up by giving them a Cooler Bag . Tablets and printed meeting handouts still fit nicely.

Duffel-Bag

Duffel Bags and Backpacks also fit into the category of fun items they can use during their Summer activities.

For 10 years our company has provided registration bags for a conference of 4300 Oracle Users. Every year we attend the conference and the overwhelming response from the attendees is that they remember the year they received backpacks instead of messenger bags.

Make it personal. This Summer give them a bag sporting your brand that will go along with them while creating memories with their families and friends. Who knows, your logo might make it into a few Facebook selfies and go viral.

Say Thank You with Gifts

A great way to say Thank You to our Employees, Vendors and Customers is with a gift. Of course, the gift must reflect the relationship you have with the recipient to be received as intended. Over-giving comes across as suspicious, while under-giving can appear unappreciative.

Whoever the recipient, be authentic in your giving. Don’t try to disguise your marketing message in the form of a gift. It’s a great idea to put your mark (brand) on your gift to remind them of who gave it to them, just keep it subtle. It’s not a billboard, it’s a gift.

A quality jacket with a monochromatic logo embroidered on the left chest is perfect for an employee who would be proud to sport his company’s brand in a subtle way. On the other hand, don’t hand them a t-shirt with a large, bright company logo that fills up the back of the shirt as a gift.

Useful gifts for Customers and Vendors are preferred because they are not too personal. Photo framesdesk clocksUSB battery chargers are all quality, useful gifts that convey your corporate message without screaming it at them.

Consider the gift recipient, and they will consider the source this year. They’ll be grateful for your gratitude.
