When the calendar ticks over into September, it’s time to put your Christmas marketing ideas into action. Not to start thinking about them but start doing them. That means that most of the thinking should have already happened, and September is the time to start acquiring the things you will need for the Christmas Marketing campaign. That might sound crazy, but it isn’t if you run a business. That’s just the way the marketing calendar works.
Why are we saying this? Because we make a range of tested and proven Christmas marketing materials for businesses of all sizes, and we hate to see people in a last-minute rush. We make them quickly enough – about a week from call to finished product on average – but often the calls come in during November or even December, and we find ourselves making things for stressed businesspeople who know they should have thought of their Christmas marketing ideas much earlier in the year.
What things do we make and how can they help with Christmas marketing campaigns? Here is a quick rundown.
Promotional Christmas Cutouts (standees)
These are simply free-form, stand-up shapes that represent a product, a mascot, or anything you want as part of your Christmas Marketing efforts. We can make literally anything you ask for in terms of shape, size, design and colour. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Roller Banners for Christmas promotions
These are best for messages containing some text for the public to read (but not too much or they will lose interest!). Perfect for product promotions, Christmas messages, seasonal discounts, Black Friday deals etc. They can be placed anywhere and then rolled up for easy storage and used next year. See the roller banner options here.
Christmas Photo Boards
These are proven to attract business. People can’t resist them when they are out Christmas shopping. Grab a seasonal ‘selfie with an Elfie’ in one of our off-the-peg Christmas photo boards or have your very own design that we will make for you, featuring your own product, brand or message! For a quick win, an off-the-peg design can be personalised to your brand by adding a name or logo. Have a look at Christmas photo boards here.
For large venues like parks and shopping centres, a Christmas Trail featuring a series of photo boards can be a big hit with the public. Here’s the story of a Christmas Trail we made for an events company promoting Christmas shopping in town centres around the country: https://photocutouts.co.uk/blog/nutcracker-trail/
All you need is an idea and we can make it a reality. How about a photo board for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas, related to your business? We love helping with the ideas and design, so give us a call and we’ll create something based on your idea!
Giant Christmas Cards
We make huge, oversized Christmas cards than can be ‘given’ to your customers as a thank you for their custom. They will stand up on their own and can be placed strategically so that customers see and read them. You can of course send one to each of your most valued suppliers or customers too. They will never forget it!
