In the United States and the entire northern hemisphere, the winter solstice, or more commonly known as the first day of winter, is on Friday, December 21, 2012.  With the winter season, also comes rain, sleet, and snow, which gives you a great opportunity to give out promotional products that are extremely useful to your customers and really win them over.

Whenever you give out promos, your main goal should be giving out products that your clientele can actually use. Therefore, your clients will use the product more and market your business by displaying your logo to those people they come in contact with on a daily basis. Imagine having your company logo displayed by hundreds of people while they walk down a busy street. That’s exactly what can happen if you give away logo umbrellas. Umbrellas with your custom logo printed on them have several marketing advantages as listed below:

  • Umbrellas have a high perceived value by the recipient. If you bought an umbrella from a retail store, you would pay upwards of $20 or more for a “good” umbrella. Therefore, receiving a FREE umbrella is very well received.
  • There is a large imprint area on umbrellas. This increases the visibility of your company for others to see and exposes your business to hundreds or even thousands of other people each time the umbrella is pulled out. Now multiply that visibility by the number of custom umbrellas that you give out!
  • Umbrellas will be kept for years and never thrown away until it worn out and unusable. These promos aren’t like a cheap pen that is used once or twice and then lost or thrown out.
  • It’s very handy to have an umbrella stashed in your car or for outdoor events when rain is a threat. Your clients will appreciate the gift and will be much more receptive to your company. Research has shown that recipients of useful promotional items are much more likely to do business with that company again. I relate it to Christmas. If friends or even acquaintances give you a gift, you feel much more obliged to reciprocate with a gift. With clients, their gift is to continue doing business with your company by shopping in your store or using your services.

Are you ready for full color postcards with a high quality imprint? Now through the end of November, you can get them for 50% off the normal price. If you have been procrastinating on doing a direct mail program, this is your chance. The Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) program from the post office allows you to pick a postal route and it only costs $0.145 for each postcard, rather than the full price postcard postage of $0.32 for the maximum size of 4.25″ x 6″ or $0.45 for a maximum size of 6.125″ x 11.5″. With EDDM, you can send sizes up to 9″ x 12″ for only $0.145. That’s only $145 to direct mail 1000 oversized postcards. And even better than that, you don’t have to purchase or provide a mailing list.

One of the most important aspects of postcard mailings is the design of the card. Perfect Imprints can help you design a professional and effective postcard to help you achieve more sales. Give us a call at 1-800-773-9472 to get your direct mail campaign started and take advantage of half price postcards.

50% off postcards through August 31st

50% off postcards, hang tags, wobblers, and bookmarks and 25% off presentation folders through August 31st, 2012

  1. Have a professional layout. Yes, this means you will have to spend a little money on your postcard design. Don’t have an amateur layout for your postcard. Professional designers understand how to design in order to direct the reader’s eye to your call to action.
  2. Have a call to action. What is it that you want the reader to do? Go to a website, send an email, make a phone call, redeem a coupon for a discount or a free gift, like your Facebook page, visit your store or event? Make sure that it is clear and you will significantly increase the number of conversions.
  3. Create a worthwhile offer. Make sure your offer is worth the time for the readers of your postcard.
  4. Use only high quality card stock and printing for your postcards. Don’t use a printer who uses a flimsy card stock and poor quality printing.
  5. Make good use of colors. Stay true to your branding, but at the same time keep visually appealing colors and take advantage of full color printing.
  6. Use images. People love to see imagery. The eyes naturally gravitate toward nice looking images, so don’t use poor quality clip art. Photos are typically better than clip art.

There’s still time to get your postcards on sale for 50% off the normal price, so call 1-800-773-9472 today before this deal ends on August 31, 2012.
