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.

What Colour Would Define Summer?

After too many months of short days, and long, cold nights, mother nature finally got tired of it all and brought spring upon us. All of a sudden trees and greenery are trying to make up for lost time, and marathons and charity walks are part of the regular weekend routine.

Of course Summer is only around the corner (It’s almost June!), and along with marathons and charity events, come corporate summer BBQ’s and team building sporting events. To help stand out in a sea of promotional merchandise we highly recommend using bright, primary colours. Colours that perhaps represent your company’s logo, or simply a bright background to for your logo to be printed on.

Colour is always an important element of any design, and this is especially true for promotional products. So make sure to use some fun, bright colours this summer season for your upcoming corporate event. We are always here to help you pick out what fits your needs best, and this of course pertains not only to colour, but also to what kinds of product might suit your needs best.

And seriously, let us know what colour you think represents the summer season and why. You can connect with us via twitter (@hasmarketing) and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/hasmarketing?ref=hl

Have a happy and safe summer!

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.
