Did you hear the news? We've expanded our Add-Your-Own-Logo Program! At the beginning of 2020, you may recall if you read all about our goals for the year, we vowed to expand our Add-Your-Own-Logo Program in the online shop. This goal may have been met later in the year than we had hoped (we blame YOU Covid), but proud to say we did achieve this goal just in time for our holiday season. However, we are just now getting around to officially announcing it here on the blog as well as our social platforms to get the word out!
First a little background. We first launched our Add Your Own Logo Program back in early 2019, giving our clients the option to add their own branding to ready-to-ship gifts in our online shop. For $8 additional per gift box, we remove our M&G branding from the gifts and instead include our clients' branding in the form of a logo gift tag and logo notecard. This has proven to be a great way for clients to get personalized, branded gifts at very low order minimums (5 gifts or more at a time) and short lead times (2 weeks) versus opting for fully custom gift design which has higher order minimums and longer lead times. Along these lines, it's also a great way for our clients to test out their ROI on smaller gift quantities before investing in larger gift quantities without knowing whether or not a gifting program makes sense for them and their clientele.
Now for the drumroll....
Due an overwhelmingly positive response to this program, I'm excited to report that we've officially expanded the program and now offer the option to brand gifts with a foil-printed logo bellyband around the gift box along with a logo notecard. (The option for the gift tag/ribbon/notecard combination still exists - we're adding to the program offerings, not taking away!) The cost for this program is a one-time graphic design setup charge of $150 plus $8 per gift box.
Card stock options are as follows: black, white, and soft white/ivory. Foil printing is available in the following: black, gold, silver, and rose gold.
The official run-down of how the overall program works is as follows:
Introducing our signature Add-Your-Own-Logo Program, our semi-custom gifting option! This is your chance to get gift boxes featuring your logo at much lower minimums and much shorter lead times than our fully Custom Gift Design Service.
HOW IT WORKS:
Select a gift box design from our Ready-to-Ship Collection and at quantities of 5 gifts or more, for $8 additional per gift box, we will remove our Marigold & Grey branding from the gifts and include your logo instead. This way the gifts truly reflect your brand rather than ours! There is a one-time graphic design set-up charge of $150 that will be invoiced to your separately to get started. If you place a replenishment order, you will not be charged the set-up fee again.
You are not required to order 5 of the same gift box to meet the 5 gift per order minimum. You can order whichever combination of five or more gift boxes you feel best matches your recipient list! If you wish to mix and match gift styles, please email email@example.com to place your order.
You have two options for how your branding will appear on the gifts:
1) Digitally-Printed Logo Gift Tag + Digitally-Printed Logo Notecard w/ Message of Your Choice
*NEW* 2) Foil-Stamped Logo Bellyband + Digitally-Printed Logo Notecard w/ Message of Your Choice
1) Bulk Shipping Now. Select 5 or more gifts and we will ship the gifts to you in bulk for you to distribute on your own. Order online or email firstname.lastname@example.org for us to send you an invoice.
3) Drop Shipping As You Need Them. If you know you'll be ordering 5 or more gifts but don't need them to ship right away because the recipients and/or gift box selections are yet to be determined, we can set you up to order on-demand. Email email@example.com and we will help you get started!
Turnaround time depends on the size of your order but in general for orders of 20 boxes or less, Add Your Own Logo orders ship out within 2 weeks of us receiving your completed order, your addresses in Excel format, and your high-res logo files in .AI or .ESP format. Orders of 20 boxes or more may be subject to longer lead times. If your lead time exceeds 2 weeks, we will contact you upon receiving your order.
The branded notecards will feature the same message across all notecards in your order. We do not offer custom paper revisions or digital proofs as part of the Add Your Own Logo Program.
If you have any questions about this new offering or the Program in general, please let us know. We're always happy to help! You can contact us here or call us at 571-766-8690 to chat with a real live member of our team, M-F, 8 am - 4 pm EST, excluding holidays.
