Be a Christmas Cracker, not a real Turkey!

With Christmas just over 2 weeks away, we have been inspired to share a few pointers with you to ensure your seasonal promotions are a Christmas cracker and not a real turkey.

There’s still time!
If you’ve left your Christmas cards and corporate gifts until the last minute, don’t worry, there’s still time. Digitally printed Christmas cards and calendars take just a couple of days to print and if you have all your data (i.e. names and addresses) ready to go, we can personalise, print and even post them for you – so you won’t need to lift a finger.

Some styles of printed mugs, pens and other merchandise can be produced using our ‘Fast Track’ service, which takes just 5 working days. This service normally costs more but for December only, it’s completely free.

A festive “Thank You”
Take advantage of this festive season to say ‘thank you’ to all your clients. The effort you put in now, will show your clients that you mean business and by giving them something tanglible like a card or calendar, it will help them to remember you, even after the Christmas and New Year celebration haze has faded.

Presentation is everything
So you’ve invested time and money in superb corporate gifts, cards and calendars, only to fall down at the final hurdle – the presentation. Think about how you’re going to present your gifts to your valued clients. Buying off-the-shelf wrapping paper is OK, but buying wrap that co-ordinates with your brand is better. However, bespoke gift wrap produced with your company’s branding or even your client’s logo is even better and will show that you’ve made a real effort!

Finishing your corporate gifts with clever presentation will be like icing on the Christmas cake and will leave a lasting impression for the new year.

Whatever stage you’re at, if you need help with planning your Christmas promotions, or just need reassurance that you’re doing the right thing, talk to us at Essential Print Services on 01332 418377 or email We’ll help you achieve, smarter, better, fresher print all year round.
