Canine Lovers Rejoice – Woofstock is Happening this Weekend!

The same way Victoria Day long weekend marks the beginning of summer for us, Woofstock is the canine equivalent. Thousands of dogs, of all shapes and sizes, gather by St. Lawrence Market area, and celebrate the arrival of nice weather and longer walks. We know our office doggies, Gordie and Dexter, are super excited, and the best part is that they don’t even know what’s coming!

For the many wonderful exhibitors and sponsors we wanted to share some awesome promotional products that are sure to turn this year’s event into a memorable one.

1. Doggie Bandana
A great way to display your logo, on a wearable fashion piece. Bandanas can be screen printed on, based on the design of your choosing. A wonderful giveaway that is sure to make both dogs, and owners happy.

2. Reusable Bags
If you are selling and/or giving away items, make sure to provide the customer with a branded reusable bag. A great canvas to put your logo on, a reusable bag is sure to be used again in the future, and remind the customer of your brand.

3. Waste Bag Dispenser
A unique item that is sure to be used over and over again. A thoughtful giveaway that any dog owner will appreciate, waste bag dispensers come in a variety of colours and can have any logo printed on them.

Whether you are preparing for the upcoming festivities, or looking into ideas for the next upcoming festival and/or event, we can help you plan the best custom product assortment. Contact us for a quote and to find out about other products.

Enjoy Woofstock this upcoming weekend, and stay hydrated!

NXNE Marks the Beginning of Summer Music and Art Events

For the 19th year in a row, NXNE events will be happening all over Toronto. Events range from musical performances, to art exhibits and films. We love NXNE and look forward to it every year – what can be better than seeing The National performing live, for free, in downtown Toronto?

In the spirit of this awesome collection of cultural events, we wanted to to outline some of the best promotional products to hand out at large cultural events, such as NXNE. Whether you are a sponsor, exhibitor or other stake holder, promotional products are a great way to build emotional connections to your brand.

1. Lanyards
Personalize your event by creating a unique lanyard that features both the name of the festival, and the specific event attended. Lanyards come in an array of colours, and can be custom printed on to your liking. A unique, or limited edition lanyard is sure to catch attendees’ attention, and is more likely to become a keepsake for years to come.

2. Water Bottles
For any outdoor events this summer, there is nothing more useful than a reusable bottle of water. For large public events, hand out bottles with your logo printed on them, and if possible arrange to set up water cooler stations around the event space. Imagine the grateful attendees who will be able to quench their thirst thanks to you?

3. Hand Sanitizer
For many people, events such as NXNE, are an all day excursion, where they travel from one event to the next. A great way to showcase your logo is on a small bottle of hand sanitizer, printed across the label. A must have item when out all day in the city.

There is still time for you to get the promotional products that will help you make this years’ NXNE events the most successful yet. Contact us for information on rush orders, and help figuring out what is the best promotional item for you and your brand.

Have a great week and enjoy the festivities!

PS. NXNE will be happening all over Toronto from June 10th – 16th. For more information visit their website: http://nxne.com/

Springing Forward into Fundraising Season

Spring is finally here, and with it come exciting fundraising events. Community and corporate BBq’s, picnics, bike-a-thons and run/walk-a-thons are all great opportunities to fundraise.

Finding sponsorship and participants can be a challenge, but with the right promotional product company providing you with quality solutions, it can be a breeze – and that’s where we come in.

First, look at putting together registration kits with information on the cause, as well as a cause branded item as a ‘Thank You’ gift. In addition, provide items like awareness bands or buttons, for participants and volunteers to give to people willing to ‘donate’ to the cause.

Third, be sure to identify your volunteers – whether it’s a brightly coloured T-shirt, vest, or hat; it is important that they ‘stand out’ in the crowd to answer questions and direct people. A wearable item should be made available to all the participants, as a commemorative item, as well as a way to identify with the group during the event.

And don’t forget to offer your sponsors the chance to include their logo on some of the promotional items, especially
the participants’ T-shirts.

The right promotional products can help elevate an event, and make it a memorable experience for all involved.
