Customers, clients, fans, staff and other supporters .. they are essential to your business, whether you a multinational or a small operation.   In fact, without them, a business wouldn't be in business for very long !


While showing appreciation should be a regular event, it is often a neglected aspect of business activity.   


blog valentinesdaySo, with a new year underway, why not use Valentine's Day 2015 as the perfect opportunity to start some 'thank you' engagement with those that matter to your business and play a role in its success.  


The starting day is really not significant, however, Valentine's Day provides a ready made theme to convey your heart-felt love i.e. in a grateful, never take you for granted, we care about you kind of love.


For cafes, restaurants, theatres/cinemas and retailers, it is easy to see how to incorporate Valentine's Day thank you appreciation gift and message.  


  • Promotional fudge or coconut ice with a coffee order
  • A gift on every cinema seat on Valentine's Day, such as stadium cup 
  • A lollipop or give-away when a customer comes into your store and orders

... even a hairdresser can have some fun e.g. a branded nail fille with the message 'we love cutting your hair'. 


Be creative, whatever your industry, there is a promotional product that can work a treat for you. 


When planning promotional products and branded apparel, always check the lead-times, as they will vary greatly.  


  • Many promotional items are held as 'stock' locally in Australia, ready for decoration. Lead times can vary from a quick supply of 3-4 days to a couple of weeks.
  • Some promotional IT items such as flashdrives, are often available as an indent order with a 'quick' supply of 10-14 days.
  • Custom made or large volumne orders (e.g. plush toys, bags, apparel) are often produced and supplied ex factory off-shore and have lead-times of 8-16 weeks. 


'The best shirt I have ever worn'  .... Now that is a testimonial !


blog icecoolpolo

Recently we supplied the Ice Cool Polo from the Stencil Range, to a customer for use as a smart casual staff uniform.  


Every time I have gone in for a visit, I get the same 'this is the best shirt I have ever worn'.


The colours are vibrant with a subtle stripe pattern and the technology in the fabric, takes comfort to a whole new level.


Specifically designed to draw heat away from the wearer, the moisture wicking and anti-bacterial qualities ensure these polos stay fresher longer. 

APPA (Australasian Promotional Products Association) recently completed a survey of 200 customers via independent  company Sweeney Research.
