Say it with Roses

With Valentine’s day imminent and romance in the air, I thought I would share an original and clever new concept that has recently come onto the UK market.

I am intrigued with this product as it is ‘branded roses’ – and that’s real, fresh, genuine roses too…. not the silk variety!

How good is that?

Coca Cola branded roses - red roses naturally

 

These beautiful, handpicked roses are available in many colours and can feature your logo or message on a petal. The distinctive and patented printing process is expertly applied by hand and is even able to pick up on very detailed designs. You can choose from single stem branded roses supplied individually in stunning boxes or full bouquets with all, or just a few roses printed. These roses can also be carefully packaged and sent out by mail. With no loss of freshness or visual impact at the receiving end; this makes them ideal for PR or new business campaigns.

We have just used these roses in goodie bags for a musical showcase hosted for music executives at the Ivy Club in London.  The classical musician’s name was printed in gold onto red roses and they were placed alongside branded champagne from The Bottle Boutique http://www.thebottleboutique.com

The guests were very impressed indeed and, understandably; there was much fascination with the roses.

Goody Bags for The Ivy Club, London

The emotional ‘pull’ and pleasure that roses can evoke, also make these branded roses simply perfect for a customer loyalty programme; as handouts at fashion and beauty events; retail and restaurant openings and for the tables at gala dinners and awards ceremonies.

Promoting Personal Safety

personal safety alarm

Many stylish stock designs

I recall when personal alarms were first introduced to the market many years back.  I had one myself which was designed to be carried around in the palm of your hand, with a press button to use when you ever felt at threat, or worse; under attack. At the time, my little alarm felt more like a hand grenade to me.  I was terrified that it would go off in my hand by mistake so it managed to spend a lot more time switched off at the bottom of my handbag than ever in my hand.

Since then, personal alarms have really come on and I only wish that this brand was around for me all those years back….

brand your own personal safety alarm

BRANDED: Highly visible and quality print finish for branded alarms

These NEW personal safety alarms have been carefully thought through and designed to appeal firstly, as a chic and feminine, fashion accessory that can be attached to any handbag or keychain.  In fact, you would never guess they are alarms at all – just attractive handbag accessories.  There’s an excellent choice of stock styles to choose from or you can have your own branded version created with your logo on; starting at just 100 pieces. Lloyds TSB; Mulberry; Sheila’s Wheels; Coca Cola; BMW and British Airways have all had these promotional alarms created for their staff and customers.

The alarm doesn’t go off with a button, it has a small chain that hangs from the bottom that, when pulled out, emits an unbelievably high decibel sound of a female scream.  I have one. I have heard it and it is loud! Enough to clear a whole room of wannabe attackers, I would say.
The fact that these clever little devices are brand-able makes them perfect promotional items for the female promotions market, ladies events, fashion event goody bags, female employee gifts and safety campaigns.

Luxury Chocolate Positioned Well Beyond Five Star

The Bespoke Goody Bag Company speak to the creators of The World’s most luxurious chocolate.

We interview Roy and Tracey Jones from The-Chocolate….

Describe your product and your target market?

The Chocolate is decadent and opulent because is the finest chocolate in the World.  Pure 24 carat gold flakes and Swarovski crystals are all the ingredients used to make the most luxurious chocolate experience worldwide.

Our target market is all those people who appreciate the finer things in life.

Who or what is your biggest inspiration?

Felix Dennis – Publishing tycoon. We follow him via his website.  He is fascinating. Anyone wanting/needing inspiration should read his book ‘How to get rich’.  It’s a no nonsense, real and humorous account of his life… the highs and the lows. And more recently, Cardinal Angelo Comastri, he inspires compassion and faith in humanity.

What has been your hardest day in business so far?

Our most stressful day has got to be that of our first major photo shoot because we had the model, photographer, make-up and hair artist, stylist and venue all ready to roll as planned at 8.30am.  The chocolate was made BUT, due to a last minute hitch the box didn’t arrive until 8.53am.  It then had to be handcrafted with the 447 Swarovski crystals!! We made it though and a fabulous day it ended.

Over 400 Swarovski crystals hand applied per box so no box will ever be the same

What has been your proudest?

The day we finally launched after 2 years of planning, researching, tasting and designing etc. When Jetgala magazine (magazine for private jet owners) and Trendhunter magazine (world’s largest Internet luxury magazine) featured The Chocolate.  Plus, the day when we were invited to Cannes film festival to showcase The Chocolate!

If you were given £1 million pound that had to be spent in a day, what would you do with it?

Purchase a property in Tuscany, Italy.  Another one also in Stratford-upon-Avon. Go mad in Louis Vuitton, some fine art for Roy and any remaining to charity.

If you had a business slogan, what would it be?

Our current one – A Fusion of British Artisan and Italian Passion.

If you were to choose a Hollywood star to play you in your life story, who would it be and why?

Roy – Al Pacino because he is not tall! But more importantly he has passion. Tracey – Cameron Diaz because she is blonde! But mainly because she appears friendly, compassionate has a zest for life.

What would you like to see in your perfect ‘goody bag’?

Branded bottles by The Bottle Boutique

Pol Roger champagne personalised by Bottle Boutique.  Bottles of Gucci perfume and a ‘Jennifer Lopez’ pink diamond.

 

Where do you hope to be in 5 years time?
For The Chocolate to be recognised as the most luxurious chocolate experience in the entire World!

Promotional Mobile first to Market

 

 

 

 

 

 


It took sometime but it is here at last!  The World’s first ever promotional mobile phone has made it to market.

And, before any assumptions are made – these mobiles are NOT printed using:

a) A wrap
b) Adhesive dome stickers
c) Click on covers
or d) Sticky labels

Branding onto these phones is created during the manufacture process at the very outset of the phone’s build.  The finish is extremely high-end and the quality and clarity of print is impossible to improve upon.

Created by a world leading telecoms manufacturer, these branded phones are currently available as simple call and text phones. 

However, from early 2012, a web and camera enabled version will also be available with minimum order quantities from just 2 units.
The current, ‘call and text’ version comes unlocked and can be used in Europe on a 2G network.   They make ideal second or third phones and it is easy for you to pop in a local pay-as-you-go SIM card for instant use.

These mobile phones are a Brand Manager’s dream promotional product and they lend themselves to a whole host of corporate marketing promotions.  They are ideal for incentives; sales promotions; goody bags; for employee’s mobiles or for gifting to valued customers.

Minimum order is currently just 300 units (for the call and text version) and they cost in the region of £35 each.  All phones are boxed with instructions and a phone charger.  The next generation (the camera and web enabled version) will be available early 2012 from just 2 units.


For more information, contact us now on 0161 222 8981 or email us at info@thebespokegoodybagco.co.uk to find out more.

From Promotional Flyers to Flowers

For goody bags or promotions in which your key messages need to focus on growth; the environment; sustainability; ethical or green issues and for companies managing a sustainable working practice, we have a fresh idea for you with endless possibilities for use. 

This innovative product is ‘seeded’ paper and card that is impregnated with flower seeds.  The material is made from 100% re-cycled paper and produced with organic pigments.  Furthermore, when it is no longer required, it will actually grow into flowers when planted!

Sainsbury's recipe card printed on seeded paper

The paper is made from a unique manufacturing process which infuses the card with flower seeds which you cannot see.  The material has an attractive, eco/recycled looking appearance and the texture is a little like that of a thin, biodegradable style jiffy pot that you would use to plant seedlings. When this paper is eventually planted, each paper sheet or card acts like a mulch to retain moisture for the seeds.    

Printing is no problem too as there is the option to print up to four colour process and for debossing also; which looks particularly effective.  It is a perfect solution for marketing campaigns or packaging requirements with a recyclable bias.  Such is the products eco credentials, that ethically aware and active cosmetics company, ‘Lush’ use this product for their packaging and, many more companies with an eye on sustainability and commercial waste are taking notice. 

How the paper works

The Lush brand demonstrate their eco credentials using seeded paper packaging

This unique product can be used to create:

  •  Seeded cards
  •  Books
  •  Packaging
  •  Stationery
  •  Swing tags
  •  Bookmarks
  •  Greetings cards

…. and indeed anything that you want, as bespoke projects can also be undertaken.

Red ruffle bag - chic alternative to the usual goody bag

We also do lots of goody bags for fashion, bar/club launches, and promotions.  Occasionally, we are able to relax the corporate approach; such as when the brief from a client is for fashion or beauty led goody bags.  They want something edgy and memorable that reflects their establishment or brand.  They want desirable goody bags that will get talked about and coveted by others.  For occasions like this, we are able to use the red ruffle gift bag shown here [also available in pink and black], the animal print gift bag here or the sequin clutch gift bag [also in pink].

Animal print gift bag

Sequin 'clutch' gift bag

Free Water and Money on Tap!

With spring now upon us, there will be thousands of you out there looking ahead to summer and stepping up a gear in the hard yakka of planning for all those hundreds of sporting events and festivals that the UK will host. 

 If that is you, then do not miss a trick with your water supplies!

If you intend to hand-out free water bottles, put them in goody bags or sell it at your event, then do consider buying your water with your own logo on the label – this can be your brand, the event logo or a sponsors.  Having your own custom labelled bottles of water will cost you much the same as wholesale bottled water, so if the option is open to you then this is pretty much a no- brainer.  You may even SAVE money!

You can also sell the label as a sponsorship opportunity to a supporter or sponsor and in doing so, recoup the entire cost of the water….. Now there’s a great cost saving exercise and a slap on the back from the boss, eh?

We can get you all sizes of water bottles and if you like, we can also get hold of health drinks & juices, smoothies, energy drinks and alcohol miniatures – again, all with the option to brand the label to your requirements.

For information about your own brand on any of these bottles or goody bags for sporting events and festivals, do get in touch now.  Tel 0161 222 8981 or email info@thebespokegoodybagco.co.uk
