Every year at about this time, we all get super excited at the Farm!  It’s when we get to start sharing new products and ideas with our customers!  When we are developing new gifts, we go into the process thinking about what we have heard from our distributor partners and their buyers in regards to their needs, wants, and desired promotional solutions. When chatting about a new product, we hear, “This would be perfect for…” or “I can see my customer using this for…” and they are situations we may not have originally envisioned.  Better yet is when those same concepts come to fruition and we get to see the gifts in action! This was the case recently with one of our latest roll-outs… our new Gourmet Cylinders.  Each cylinder is filled with two tasty treats to share—or keep all to themselves.  And because they lend themselves to so many types of projects, we made sure that there are plenty of warm-weather-shippable treats on offer as well.  Add in the fact that each cylinder is complete with a custom full-color sleeve, and it’s a winner for every lucky recipient! Read on for recent case studies showing the power of these new fully-custom imprinted dual-packed treats:

In this day and age, nearly everything in marketing is done electronically. Email is the go-to method for corresponding with co-workers and clients. Search engine optimization helps companies jockey for prime position on search engine results pages. Social media has ingrained itself not only as a marketing tool but also as a leisure activity for anyone with 15 minutes or less to kill. Yet even with all this technology embedded within our lives, a different marketing channel continues to thrive: direct mail.
