Father’s Day Treats and Ideas

Father’s Day is around the corner and we wanted to share some inspiring ideas that can be personalized to make this day special.

DIY:

1. Personalized Mug
Grab a ceramic mug and a sharpie, both can be any colour of your choosing, and personalize it with doodles and sayings! Perhaps something your dad always says, a moustache or a tie, or the classic ‘#1 Dad in the World’. bake in the oven, and voila you have a very special, one of a kind mug, that is sure to put a smile on your dad’s face.

2. Brunch
Make a brunch for dad, because everyone knows that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Who doesn’t love to wake up to some fresh orange juice, eggs (any style), and bacon. Check out the recipe below for an awesome combination of waffles, eggs, bacon and maple syrup;

Custom Made:

1. Calendar
Whether your dad is in the pictures, or they are only of you and your siblings, a calendar is a great way to show your dad how much he means to you, all year round. A funny idea would be to reenact some classic childhood photos, and have them printed side by side next to the originals.

2. T-shirt
Create your own design for a personalized T-shirt, a funny saying, or a great picture, for example. Surely a custom t-shirt will be cherished for years to come, and proudly worn whenever the occasion arises.

So get creative, and make something truly special for your dad this year! Any combination of the above ideas will be a wonderful gesture. We are still planning our Father’s Day so please reach out and tell us of any unique ideas you have! We would love to hear from you :)

For any more information on how you can make this Father’s Day special, please contact us.

Have a great week!

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.

Promo on the Street

Promotional apparel and merchandise is everywhere, and is a great way to extend your branding and create familiarity among customers/consumers.

Blo Blow Dry Bar franchises are great at branding!

Each week, we stop people on Toronto’s busy streets, pop into their stores, and take pics of our favourite personalities around the city sporting promotional apparel/merchandise favourites.  It is a great way everyone to recognize just how integral those little items like lanyards, hats, t-shirts, aprons and buttons are to the success of your business, large or small.

Pizza Pizza knows what's up!

You could be next! How creative is your company’s branding? Stop into H.A.S Marketing at 545 King Street West (down the alley way, on left side), Toronto,  and we will be happy to consult with you for your next big event, customer loyalty gifts, business cards, and any promotional merchandise/apparel or materials you need to get your company’s message across!
