Leather Conference Folders & Promotional Bottled Water – Why They Make Great Promotional Gifts

Leather Conference Folders & Promotional Bottled Water – Why They Make Great Promotional Gifts

At your next Conference will you target your product or service by giving delegates a Leather Conference Folder or do you target the delegate’s personal care with Promotional Bottled Water? This article discusses both possibilities and then leaves the choice up to you.

When a delegate receives information on the conference they have been invited to it sets the level of expectation immediately. If you contact the person via E.Mail with a PDF map that could be acceptable. However if the information arrives by post along with a relevant Promotional Gift such as a good quality road map or pen then it makes it much more personal. It gives the delegate the impression that they matter and that they can look forward to more pleasant surprises upon arrival. Perception is vital so you must get it right at the outset.

Upon arrival at the event the delegate can expect to pick up a bag with relevant information on where to go, what to do etc. But imagine if when they arrive that the information is presented in a Leather Conference Folder with their initials engraved upon the outer cover? All of a sudden this person feels that they are a valued individual and not just part of the crowd. You can see this for yourself at the next event you attend. Watch what attendees do with a plastic carrier bag, it is usually dropped at the feet of the recipient whilst they remove their coats or sign in. It is then left lying around or discarded entirley. Compare that then to the person whose personalised Leather Conference Folder is treated with care and respect. The folder will be put down carefully on a surface and it will be studied carefully as if it were an important item.

By catering for the attendees personal needs you once again demonstrate a personal touch. Giving each delegate Promotional Bottled Water tells them that you know they will probably get thirsty and you care enough about them to solve that problem. Unlike a pen or keyring this really is all about them and their personal care and not about you and your product. That said of course by branding the Promotional Water Bottle you achieve two wins for the price of one.

So which one you choose is completely up to you. Do you use the Leather Conference Folder or the Promotional Bottled Water? You will be aware that either of these items work well in delivering your message to its intended audience. The water will almost certainly be consumed on site so could be considered as a short term Promotional Item whereas the personalised Leather Conference Folder will definitely be taken back to the office or home and valued as great quality Business Gift.

Personally I believe you should give them both options but then as a Promotional Merchandise supplier that probably won’t surprise your will it?

    Scrapbooking Supplies

    Scrapbooking Supplies

    Scrapbooking has become an all time favorite hobby for millions of people!  What started out with just the basic supplies of decorative paper, stickers and borders, has grown into a wide range of scrapbooking supplies!  Supplies can be purchased at craft/hobby stores, retail stores, hobby shows, or online, as well as found around your home.  Whether you’re a novice or a pro, here are some supplies you’ll want to keep on hand.
    •    The basics.  Keep a stock of: glue sticks, adhesive tabs, 2-way tape, transparent tape and scissors on hand.
    •    Paper.  You’ll want a variety of paper: 12″x12″ themed paper, 8.5″x11″ themed and solid paper, cardstock, etc.   Remember to keep your scraps as well; they come in handy!
    •    Albums/page inserts.  It’s good to have a couple of plain albums that can be customized and several page inserts.
    •    Hole punchers.  There are different types of hole punchers, such as seasonal, rounded corners or initials.  Whether you’re making a card, a scrapbook page or a photo frame, the hole punchers come in handy.
    •    Rubber stamps.  Some people enjoy adding a design to their scrapbooking craft with rubber stamps.  Stamp options are endless and the ink color choices are plentiful.  
    •    Stencils.  Stenciling adds a fun element to scrapbooking.  You can stencil borders, names, frames, etc.  
    •    Stickers.  There are all sorts of stickers…clear, diecut, dimensional, embossed, glitter, etc.  Because stickers are small and can be time consuming to sort through, use an inexpensive photo album that has self-adhesive pages to store your stickers.  Simply place similar stickers on an album sheet and place the plastic over it.  You’ll be able to search for a sticker quickly and it won’t be bent.
    •    Color markers and pens.  Keep a good supply of markers and pens on hand.  For most projects, you’ll want permanent markers or pens with a fine tip.
    •    Paper cutter.  A paper cutter is a great tool to keep on hand.  Whether you’re trimming a picture, cutting a sheet of paper in half, etc., a paper cutter gives you a good sharp edge.
    •    Decorative items.  You can never have too many little items on hand…buttons, ribbons, rose petals, glitter, sequins, beads, foil accents, prepackaged embellishments, etc.  Empty spice jars or baby food jars make great containers for these small items.
    •    Borders.  Keep a good supply of borders on hand.  These can be put in the back of the album containing your stickers.
    As much as possible, you’ll want to keep your scrapbooking supplies organized. Thankfully there are containers you can purchase that are designed to store paper, glue, hole punchers, etc.  If possible, designate an area of a room for your supplies.  If you’re able to have easy access to your crafts, you’re a lot more apt to use them.

    Plastics-A Guide To Dangerous Plastics

    Plastics-A Guide To Dangerous Plastics

    People are hearing all kinds of scarey reports about toxic chemicals leaching from plastic bottles and containers into our food and beverages.  Much of it is true.  To make matters more alarming if you re-use or heat these bottles, it could increase the dangers of the plastic.  Therefore, increasing exposure to any number of chemicals and hormone mimics. 

    According to the “Children’s Health Environmental Coalition”,  there is some help in the way of choices.  There is a way for us to know which plastics are worse and which aren’t as bad.  Many plastics we use have a recycling symbol that can help us decide if we want to use them.  If you look on the bottom of a bottle or container there is a number inside the recycling symbol.  Those numbers tell which ones which are accepted by recyclers.  They also tell the class of plastic and therefore its chemical characteristics.  Below you will find a “Mini-Guide to Plastic Bottle Safety”.

    No.1 – Pete or Pet (Polyethylene Terephthalate)
    No.2 – HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)
    No.3 – V (Vinyl or PVC)
    No.4 – LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)
    No.5 – PP (Polypropylene
    No.6 – PS (Polystyrene)
    No.7 – Other (Usually Polycarbonate)

    Some plastic products are still not labeled with initials or numbers.  In those cases just call the manufacturer directly.

    In a nutshell, if the bottle has the number 1, 2, 4 or 5 on the bottom, it is made from a safer plastic.  If the number is 3, 6, or 7 the percentage is higher and the plastic will leave a chemical residue.  Category 3 is the worst, followed by 7 and then 6.

    Best advice is to avoid plastics for food and beverages – use metal, glass or ceramic containers if at all possible.
