Spirit Brand Boosts Awareness With Custom Bottle Bows

 

In the highly competitive liquor brand space, it’s not always easy to stand out from all the other brands. A great way for spirit brands to garner attention on store shelves is with unique, creative packaging.

Case History

In an effort to boost brand awareness for a fast-growing vodka brand, our client had the vision to create custom bottlenecker bows to their specifications. Our client approached us for custom manufacturing and fulfillment. The bows needed to be custom printed on one side and have an elastic band on the backs to easily slip onto a bottle.      

 

The challenge: they needed thousands of these custom made bows produced at a low cost and directly delivered (drop shipped) to a large customer list less than 30 days after the order was placed.

At Brand Spirit, we always love a good challenge. After our client approved the pre-production sample, the custom bottle bows were produced and delivered to our centrally-located fulfillment warehouse days ahead of schedule. The bows were then counted, packed and shipped out to the customer list the same day they arrived. Depending on their location, our clients’ customers received their shipments within 1-3 days of shipping (which was days ahead of schedule) with no rush shipping required. We love making our clients happy!

Do’s & Don’ts: The Art of Corporate Gift Giving

The first rule of corporate gift giving is, it’s NOT personal gift giving. It’s crucial to keep in mind that the kind of gift you send will reflect directly on your business.

There certainly is an art to this client management practice and once you hit the nail in the head, your business is sure to benefit exponentially.

do's and don'ts of corporate gift giving

No logos on holiday gifts

While it might be tempting to add your logo on a premium holiday gift, sincerity can be best achieved if you leave it out. Instead, we recommend attaching a personal hand-written greeting card with your name and business. Adding printed materials like custom holiday cards, paper bags, or tote bags are acceptable locations for logos on business gifts.

Things to consider when gifting food items

Candies, pastries, artisan goods, and fruit baskets are popular corporate gifts all year round. When deciding on food gifts, be mindful of clients’ allergies and factor in how and when the package would arrive. Make sure that the gift arrives at optimum state.

The IRS Factor

Some companies are not allowed to accept gifts and your brand has to know which clients are covered by this rule. Business gifts are tax-deductible up to $25 per person for the tax year. Packaging, shipping and delivery are not part of this total. This is not a one-size-fits-all guideline. IRS publication 463 can offer more specifics.

Cultural Sensitivity

Be aware of images and symbolism placed on packaging and on the gifts themselves. Doing basic research about other cultures goes a long way and pays off. If you’re sending to a substantial number of clients, choosing a more generic gift like the Michelin Guide to Restaurants is a safe but high-value gift.

Make a list

Take note of who received gifts, what the gifts were and their costs, and whether they were sent via courier or hand-delivered. This will be helpful for your business’ documentation of spend in case a report needs to be submitted to the finance department.

We at Brand Spirit pride ourselves in providing personalized customer support to help our clients find the best corporate gifts that follow best practices in for many industries.
