Implementing Health & Wellness Programs at Work

Do you have a health or wellness goal that you have struggled to begin accomplishing? Many of us do because we let the lack of time, resources or our own stress from daily life keep us from getting started!

Why it's Better to Buy More in the Promotional Industry

BOGO, Two For, buy $x get a coupon for $x. Free freight etc. At a time of year when you see every type of sale known to mankind we thought it might be a great opportunity to tell you why buying more is always better in the world of promotional products. When a big box retailer like Walmart places an order for your favorite laundry soap, they buy the same exact box that every other retailer is buying. Because of this, the manufacturer can take advantage of all of those purchases when they manufacture the box and the soap itself.   If it takes two hours to create the artwork for the box and two hours to ready the press, this cost will be divided amongst the total amount of soap boxes they will be printing. Let me give you an example. If the cost to create the graphics and ready the … Read More

Encouraging Word-Of-Mouth Advertising with Promotional Products

Word of Mouth Advertising (WOM)—even if you are not a marketer, you are probably no stranger to this term. Word of mouth marketing is the natural conversation about your business and your message between a customer and another person or group, either spoken out loud or documented somewhere on the internet.

On the same note, when a consumer receives less than excellent service and is … Read More

Promoting with Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year

Last week, Pantone announced their 2015 color of the year—Marsala. For those of you who do not know, Pantone is a color matching system that is used most frequently in printing. You may remember us talking out PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors recently in our “Promospeak” Glossary. We use this system so that we can accurately match the color you want your imprint to show in. The color of the year is named after the deep red wine, Marsala. It is an earthy color with dark red hues and hints of brown. This rich color has the ability to make a statement and presents a warm feel.

I think it  is versatile and will pair well with other colors.  The tone … Read More
