I know it seems early but if you want to get your staff, customers or suppliers something for Christmas to say thank you for the years work/support it’s best to beat the rush. This is the peak time of year for merchandise production so lead times can be a moving feast, a bit like Christmas Day itself.
So short-list some items, grab your logo and drop us a line, there’s still time to get something special organised.
If you need advice we can help on what’s new, what works or tell us who it’s for and the story you want it to tell and we can source for you. We have access to a huge merchandise network which allows us to source the perfect item for your campaign.
Are You Print Ready?
You’ve picked your item, decided on quantity, colour etc, you flick your logo over, job done and BAM the whole job is put back because the logo isn’t in the right format.This is the last thing you need when you’re on a tight deadline.
Plan ahead and make sure you have your logo in all the formats you will need so pdf, eps and vectorised eps for text. You may also want to consider a mono version as well as a colour version as it can be more cost effective for print and other times colour simply isn’t possible, for example laser engraving.
You may also need both a horizontal version and a stacked version of your logo, something that looks great on your letterhead often just won’t fit on a pen, there simply isn’t the space.
Make Your Customers Feel Warm & Fuzzy
We’ve just done this stubby cooler for our lovely accountants at TNR, they wanted something different to the regular corporate cooler to hand out at the Christmas party. Being based in Byron Bay we made it personal for them with a fully sublimated image of the iconic Byron Lighthouse. So now when people are using their TNR coolers all Summer people will be asking ‘where did you get that cooler with the lighthouse?’ and TNR’s name will be front of mind. Simple things like this give clients a warm fuzzy glow, and for some businesses particularly in the financial services there aren’t many opportunities for warm fuzzy glow. We’re good at helping you create one.
