3 Practical Reasons for Corporate Gifting

Corporate gifting is one of the best ways to grow and maintain your business.

using name tags for your corporate gifting this year is just as important as picking out the right wrapping and ribbonsThere are many reasons for corporate gifting that range from thanking consumers for their business to recognizing employees for outstanding work. But, the primary reason seems always to be the same. It is to sustain relationships and deepen the personal connection between the giver and the recipient.

Most companies agree that this fundamental reason is an opportunity to share your holiday cheer, connect with your clients and strengthen employee ties. Recruiting, retention and development are three other great reasons to give a corporate gift.

But here are the best three reasons to give a corporate gift!

Giving

The holidays are built on the premise of giving and volunteering in your community. No matter the reason for giving anything, you should only expect one thing back: a friendly smile, a “please” or “thank you,” or maybe even a hug. But no matter what you give, it is the thought that counts.

Wrapping

Some people just possess the talent to wrap gifts perfectly. Some don’t. But, no matter if you’re one of these wonderful people or not, everyone loves to get a wrapped present! Don’t sell your gifts short with bland packaging or by not even wrapping them. Choose bright, happy and seasonal gift wrap for your corporate gifting.

Name Tags

Last is the most important, right? Well, we sure think so! Name tags and other personal identification products are great ideas for corporate gifts. Whether it’s a new name badge for your employees or an executive desk wedge for your best customer, we’re sure to have the right gift for your needs!

Introducing: Partition Pins

Last week we announced a new name plate product. This week, we have another one: partition pins!

Not only are name plates common in office settings, but they are often seen in retail and other settings. The conundrum, however, comes when trying to find the right type of name plate and fastener or holder to use.

There are many different options for name plates. We offer a basic laser engraved name plate, which is great for a quick name and title. This type of name plate is the most versatile and can be moved around with a person from office to office, or cubicle to cubicle. But what happens when they need to be hung on a cubical or movable wall? We’ve all seen those wonderful fabric walls! So, we’re introducing our new Partition Pins!

name tag inc partition pins for name plates and wall mountsPartition Pins are designed for attaching name plates and small office signage to fabric, cloth or carpet on walls, doors, cubicles and partitions. These pins are perfect for a do-it-yourself alternative to other fastener options such as Velcro, adhesive or screws. Simply attach these pins, which come in pairs, to the back of a name plate and slide the pins into the cloth on a cubicle wall. These pins securely hold the name plate up until it’s time to move it. They are also easily used on a wall mount instead of directly on the back of a name plate. These pins are also made so they don’t damage partition or cubicle walls.

Simply peel the backing off the adhesive on the back of the pin and press firmly down onto the desired surface. They prevent slipping and falling!

 

So, the next time you need to hand something on a cubicle wall, think of the wonderful new addition of Partition Pins to the Name Tag, Inc. line!

Personal Branding vs Corporate Branding

First things first… What is BRANDING?

Definition: BRAND – a particular product or a characteristic that serves to identify a particular product, a trade name or trademark, and/or a particular kind or variety.

what is corporate branding and what is personal branding using name tags lanyards signs name badgesLet’s break it down a bit farther to make it a little easier. The act of branding is the process involved in creating a unique name or image for a product, person or idea. This is done mostly through advertising and other similar means. It is also the action of building a convincing individual or unique presence in a consumer market that attracts and retains loyal customers.

Now that we’ve established what branding is, let’s discuss the different aspects of what it is.

Personal branding is the process of an individual marketing, or advertising, themselves or their personal career as a unique image, or brand. It is in effect the ongoing practice of building up an image or uniqueness about themselves to others around them. A personal brand often involves the use of someone’s name on various marketing products.

Examples of personal branding:

In the name tag world, a personal brand comes when you wear a name tag with your name (first and/or last) to identify yourself as an individual and to stand out in a crowd. By wearing personal identification products, e.g. name tag, name badge, etc., one makes themselves more visible to others and opens a door to better experiences at large events. Most often one can see this type of brand at large corporate meetings or conventions where the individual needs to be distinguished from others.

Corporate branding is the process of promoting the logo and/or brand name of a company or corporation for marketing and advertising purposes. Typically the range of a corporate brand is very broad and is often used as a way to express the company’s ideals and goals.

Examples of corporate branding:
Apple; M&M (Mars, Incorporated); The Hershey Company;
Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.; NIKE, Inc.

Corporate branding utilizes the same items as personal branding, such as lanyards and name tags, but they are used differently. Many companies choose to add their logo, or brand, to the name tags so that their employees are easily identifiable to the consumer. These items are then turned into a way of advertising their company rather than the individual. Many times this type of branding is seen at conferences where many companies that manufacture or sell the same ideas or items might mingle. Lanyards, name tags and often signs are used to distinguish each business attending the conference.

Whether personal or corporate, a brand is important to anyone who is seeking to be differentiated from those around them. Corporations typically have a logo designed while individuals must promote their names as a logo.
