Creative Ideas To Recognize Graduates

At this point of the COVID-19 pandemic it comes a no surprise that many schools are making the difficult decision to cancel traditional graduation ceremonies. This is such an important milestone in life and holds so much significance in marking the transition into adulthood. Finding a creative way to recognize these students for all of their hard work and help them celebrate their achievements is crucial.

Signs posted throughout town or on lined up on school property recognizing each student creates a unique experience. Lining the school parking lot with signs for each graduate gives a “drive thru” experience for the seniors. With a variety of sign materials we have options to fit all budgets. Each sign can be personalized with the graduates name and we can also incorporate graphics for honor cords they earned. Leave the back of the signs blank and have sharpies available so students can sign the back of their friends signs- at a safe social distance, of course! This will make the signs even more of a keepsake for the students. Call us today to discuss your individual needs and budget and we can help you come up with the solution that works best for you.

Signs can be customized with each graduates name to create a unique “drive thru” experience to recognize each senior.

Private schools and colleges have an even more difficult time recognizing students. An item like this

that can be mailed out to each student alone or with other items, is a perfect memento. Add the school name and Class of 2020 to the bottom front and insert a printed list of all graduates. The insert is visible from both sides of the frame so this works well even for large graduating classes. The graduate can leave the insert in, or they can easily insert a picture of their own.

Insert the graduation program inside the frame to a list of graduates. Insert is visible from both sides allowing room for creativity.

Fun items such as custom socks offer a ton of creative options. Let us print the school mascot , tassels, mortarboard or an argyle pattern in the school colors and Class of 2020. Provide us with a list of names and addresses and we will have the socks shipped to the graduate’s home. We can add a custom printed card or sock topper for an additional message option. These socks will be a fun reminder every time they are worn.

Call or email us today to brainstorm ideas to help you recognize your graduates in a way that they deserve.

Promoting Carry Out and Delivery During Shut Downs

So many small businesses are scrambling right now to figure out what to do amid the shutdowns during COVID-19. Many restaurants and bars that have relied on full dining rooms are now offering carry out and delivery services to stay afloat. We put together a few ideas at really great prices and 24 hour production here give you ideas on how to promote the carry out and delivery options that your restaurant or bar is offering during the shut down.

One of our favorite affordable option that will last and continue to advertise for you well beyond the coronavirus pandemic is magnets. The one we feature in the special is a business card size magnet and we suggest adding a QR code that will drive people directly to your online menu or daily specials on your website. Is your restaurant or bar is still lucky enough to be open, start handing them out to customers immediately. If you are already shut down, send your employees out to drop them off on porches with paper menus or coupons. Take them to office buildings that are still working, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, etc. Drop one in every take out bag or delivery you make. They will be a constant reminder that you offer carry out or delivery.

Identify your delivery vehicle for the safety of your drivers and your customers with these door magnets. 30 mil magnets are affordable options for short term use.

Tri fold menus offer a single use option without having to clean menus and can also be attached to delivery bags or dropped off at office, apartment or other buildings to promote your delivery or carry out services.

Promote carry out or delivery services that your restaurant or bar is offering during the shut down.
Paper menus offer several advantages- they don’t require wiping down, can be attached to carry out bags or containers and can be handed out as needed.

If you are offering delivery, insulated cooler bags help keep food hot or cold and advertise your services. Low minimum, 24 hour production and a special price of $3.14* each (*through 4/15/20 with code 2020, 1 color imprint) on this insulated delivery bag will help keep food at the right temperature and advertise your restaurant’s delivery at the same time. Let us know if you need larger or smaller options as well. Smaller options would also work well for prepared “meals to go”.

Provided insulated cooler totes to all your delivery people to not only help keep food at the right temperature, but to also advertise your delivery service during the shut down.

A fun idea to include in bags are puzzle books everyone can enjoy while they are spending time in their homes. We can add a QR code to the imprint on these to drive people to the menu on your website or one of your social media pages. If you are a family style restaurant coloring books or paint pages would be a welcome treat in each delivery. And these items will still be useful after business gets back to normal.

Reusable Cutlery sets are an eco friendly alternative to plastic utensils. Deliveries to offices, warehouses or other customers with multiple people will appreciate having their own set of utensils. With rush production and a special price of .92 each (through 4/15 with 1 color imprint) we can have these in your hands quickly.

Reusable stadium cups, paper, plastic or foam disposable cups with your logo are also available. Not all of these are available in a rush so please let us know if you need them quickly and we will help you find the best option.
