Seasonal / Marketing Ideas
Father’s Day isn’t far away and we have some great product ideas to help give the perfect personalised and creative gift for all those No.1 Dad’s!
We recently launched our Panoramic Street sign as well as extra sizes in our very popular rail sign! The shape of these products allow them to fit almost anywhere with that special or personal message for Dad and look great in garages and workshops!
We have a beautiful selection of tins (which we are updating all the time) supplied with printable toppers which are great for personalising and adding designs to. Our 169 x 130mm tin is letterbox postal size, so if you are unable to see your Dad on Father’s Day, creating a special message and enclosing some special treats is maybe the perfect solution?! Not forgetting Grandad too!
Another great gift for Father’s is our new tie holder! Great for keeping ties (or belts!) tidy and will hang neatly in any room. Personalise Dad’s bar or garage / shed /workshop with our new range of Hex Spanners, Handsaw ‘cut above the rest’ sign or Beer glasses!
In this newsletter we thought we would give you a glimpse of some of the transport shapes we offer. Great for the mechanical enthusiast and for personalising for an individual!!
Our beautiful bus shape is ‘loaded’ with ideas! How about filling it with family members or friends photos over the years, showing ‘your journey together’! or personalising it for a London loving friend or driver! We also offer an SUV car, tractor, train and carriage, motorbike, plus our fun car – cartoon shape , featured below.
Our car – cartoon shape is great to display in the garage, car or bedroom! Above shows a fun way we used it, for all those ‘Dad Taxi’s’ as a personalised gift or change the colours and registration for someone who has passed their test or has bought their first car!
One Item…Three Ways!
We thought we would show you how different styles of design look on our shapes! This Tractor shape comes in 6 sizes from Tiny to Giant A4 and the A4 is also available as a clock… so loads of ways to be creative!
PHOTO: This beautiful Giant A4 clock was designed using the photo of a farmer’s tractor. Using a photo with our shapes is a great idea to make very personalised products and gifts. This particular tractor now stands pride of place in the kitchen!
PHOTOSHOP: If you are looking for a quicker way to get designs onto our shapes this is maybe the best option! The design for this tractor was made for a farm mad little boy! Using this way of designing would allow you to easily change the name and colours on the tractor and appeal to more customers!
ARTWORK: Whether you are a budding artist or simply want to cherish a child’s artwork for years to come, then sublimation is a perfect way to show off those designs! A great way to decorate a room or display around the home without worrying they are going to be damaged or ruined!
More changes in personnel this month as our effort to keep up with your ever growing orders continues! We firstly thank Carolyn for helping us out for the last few months and say good luck as she moves to a new job! We then welcome Jodie to the office, as part of the marketing and product development team and Nigel, Brandon, and Rob to the workshop in the production team – welcome male additions for poor Carl, who has been very out numbered in recent years lol 🙂 15 staff members ! Many thanks to you all for helping us grow and please keep your orders rolling in to keep everyone busy on the run up to our second busiest time of the year – Father’s day in June!
