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:

Like so many of us, I found myself a part of this amazing industry of promotional products by sheer happenstance.  Before starting my journey with Maple Ridge Farms over 12 years ago, I didn’t understand or acknowledge the existence of an industry that used actual products to promote or market brands, companies, and organizations, or events.  Sure, I had received imprinted pens, t-shirts, and the like, but I never gave much thought to where they came from.  I never stopped to think about someone choosing that product, the imprint placement, or the actual impact it was intended to have.  What was the “reason” it existed to begin with?  Who was their intended recipient?  What were they trying to accomplish with it?
