A Trip to Remember
HAWAIIAN CAMP SHIRTS
How they work: Hawaiian Camp Shirts bring vibrant colors and prints to the traditional camp shirt. They are machine-washable and available in unisex sizes XS through 6XL. (Courtesy of Taraynn Lloyd, marketing director, Edwards Garment, Kalamazoo, Mich.)
Why are they effective: Hotel staff no longer have to be outfitted in drab colors. Bold, colorful imprints brighten up the atmosphere while maintaining a clean, uniformed look.
Free sales tip: Camp shirts aren't limited to staff members. They can also be used as giveaways for resort guests. Lloyd gave an example. "One of our distributors who sells to resorts was approached by the resort to supply Hawaiian camp shirts for a wine tasting event they were hosting for guests," she recalled. "Each guest who pre-registered for the event received their Hawaiian camp shirt upon registration and was requested to wear it to the event." Lloyd mentioned that a portion of the proceeds from the event went to charity.
K-CUP AND CUSTOM COOKIE GIFT PACKS
How they work: Each K-Cup and custom cookie gift pack is assembled with a full-color, custom printed sleeve to complement a custom cookie. (Courtesy of Rhonda Delaney sales manager, Chocolate Chocolate, Blaine, Wash.)
Why are they effective: Corporate offices, hotels and convention centers appreciate the Keurig Coffee system's simple mechanics and no-coffee ground mess. And, as Delaney put it: "Who doesn't like a little something sweet with their afternoon coffee?"
Free sales tip: "Room drops for large conventions, sales meetings or guest thank-yous are a few of the ways to use this product," Delaney said. "The beauty of this product is that the belly band can be changed every time the product is ordered. You can customize the band to the season, date or event while leaving the chocolate art generic so only one mold fee."
