If you've asked anyone on our team about holiday gifts, you've heard our philosophy on posting and gifting around the holidays. While you probably heard that we think it's an oversaturated time in the 'market', we do have some suggestions for how to stand out, and when to do it.

Take for example, this postcard sent out by our beloved, Harold Kobner, from Argo Real Estate. He sent it out as a Valentine's card to his clients, friends and family. It was a huge hit. And, he shared center stage with no one in the industry, because that is not when they normally connect.

How sweet! These great ‘sweet cards’ are a great way to send out a sweet treat
along with a note. Totally customizable and cost effective.
Whether you stuff your customizable gift full of your company's product and swag and send it out to your favorite client or curate a box full of yummy foods and beverages. You can do this yourself or even have us do it for you. Just reach out.
We have a client who does big business, based in Chicago. They wanted to send out something that was Chicago based. What's more Chicago than Garrett's popcorn? So this year their clients will be receiving tins of delicious popcorn. How are they making it their own? The top of the tin will be customized and each recipient will receive a gift note!
Our team is happy to brainstorm with you about your gifting plan.
