With the crush of the high street and email inboxes overflowing with marketing messages, Christmas can be a little chaotic. A good gift to your clients however, could really put you ahead of your competitors, making you memorable enough to get on the good list for next year. Here are some of our top tips on gift giving to customers.
Deck the halls with desktop delights
Forget fighting for email space. During a busy day getting a treat in the post or at your desk can stop all the hustle and bustle. Here are some of our favourite desk presents to give to clients:
Calendars really are everyone’s favourite corporate gift. Splash your company branding or designs across them and send them out to clients for year-long notoriety. We have four types of calendars so there’s no excuse not to buy this thoughtful gift. Desktop Calendars are our bestsellers for their perfect position, and we also offer Thumbcut Calendars, Single Page Wall Calendars and Double Page Wall Calendars. Get your message at the front of people’s minds throughout the coming year, and stay ahead of the game.
Something about a personalised notebook just makes it ever-more special. Emblazon with your logo and messaging for impactful advertising, or your customer’s name or company for a real treat to those that matter most. Helpful stationery to get your company in your client’s hands on a daily basis – what’s not to love? And you can always treat yourself and your staff to a few Branded Notebooks as well to eliminate tatty scraps of paper from meeting rooms.
With Photographic, Canvas or Framed prints, we offer plenty of options if you’re thinking of gifting a gorgeous picture this Christmas. Yes it’s a bit more extravagant, but we like a bit of luxury at printed.com. They make a perfect present, particularly if you’ve worked on a client’s design portfolio or as a reminder of a specific project you’ve worked on together throughout the year.
Saddle stitched brochure
A Saddle Stitched Brochure summarising the year to customers; with company and product updates, news, stats and thanks, is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to clients. It’s not a typical Christmas gift, but we are sure they’ll feel special and thought of when they receive this lovely direct mail. With ten different paper stocks and gloss or matt lamination options, your brochures have the ability to go luxe too.
These small extras are just like a little stocking present. Bookmarks are great as a gentle reminder, while also being super useful and memorable. A velvet laminated bookmark takes up the ante, making it a promotional giveaway that keeps on giving.
Season’s greetings in the post
If you’re not gift giving, but still want to acknowledge clients, a festive postcard or greeting card with the right message and finish will be perfect. Draft up a client list you want to send the ultimate Christmas classic product the humble greeting card to, and start thinking about what design you’d like – either a classic Christmas card or maybe incorporate your logo in some way perhaps? Make sure to send out your cards in time and with a festive envelope liner too. Or, consider trying a white ink postcard – perfect for when the cold nights are drawing in and you want to make your design a little more eye-catching.
Festive finishing touches
You can create a memorable unboxing experience by printing your own wrapping paper designs to sell on, or to wrap up your own products as a retailer. Printed and trimmed into convenient A2 sheets, it’s ready to wrap on arrival. We use a lightweight, easy-to-fold 75gsm uncoated paper, which is perfect for achieving those crisp lines and neat folds that are the hallmark of good gift wrapping. Opt for single or double-sided gift wrap printing and team it with a branded sticker and a mini card – these mighty multifunctional cards can be used as a present tag to seal the whole thing with professional panache.
