Personalized Chocolate Bar Wrappers for Trade Fairs April 4, 2013

Before my daughter was born, I worked in Marketing. More specifically, as an Account Executive, I was involved in sponsorship and advertising sales. I totally loved my job. I got to work with an amazingly talented group of  people and met clients who were so lovely that I still keep in touch with some of them via Facebook. One of the things I used to help my clients with was sponsorship of local events. They’d have a table (or booth) and would beautifully present their products and services. I’d always encourage them to have hand outs, freebies, giveaways, fun props, collect data from the attendees and be entered into a competition, etc. Basically the concept was to get potential customers to come to your table (hence it needs to look attractive and attention grabbing), once at the booth you’d want them to be dazzled by your personality, knowledgeability, quality of your product, and professionalism. When they leave your table, you want them to remember you and if they have a bag full of brochures, chances are that the whole bunch will end up in the recycle bin. So, what do you do? Hand out pencils, pens, magnets, etc that have your company logo? Blah. So boring. Sometimes, it pays off big time to think outside the box… how about water bottles with your company’s logo and contact details? Or delicious bars of chocolate?

Check out these personalized chocolate bar wrappers that I created for Xtend Healthcare, one of the fastest growing revenue cycle solutions company in the industry right now. They are planning to hand out at an upcoming conference. The conference has a Cowboy and Western theme hence the stetson on the front. These chocolate bar wrappers are a revised version of the one in my Etsy store. You can see that here.

According to Kimberly:

The best thing is that the wrapper tells so much about us.  Sometimes it is hard to get your details to clients so this works well.

I’ve made other items for companies and businesses in the past… personalized Hershey kiss labels for a photographer, hang tags for a company in Mexico, chocolate bar wrappers for a local election, etc. It’s always fun to make these items but I don’t usually get to see the end result so thank you so much Kimberly at Xtend Healthcare for sending me these photos of the chocolate bars. They really do look great, even if I do say so myself!

Superheroes and Princesses! May 16, 2011

A couple weeks ago I was contacted by Amy. She asked me to revise the Comic Book Superhero collection that I have posted in my Etsy store to make it appropriate for her twin’s birthday party. Steven and Kaitlyn were going to be celebrating their third birthday party and the theme of their party was Superheroes and Princesses! How fun is that? To keep the flow of bright, saturated colors in the existing collection, I added a touch of hot pink. I also revised the party sign to read: Welcome Superheroes and Princesses! No Villains Allowed!

Take a look at the photos Amy sent me from the party! Everything came out looking amazing! Thank you so much for sharing.

Water wrappers

I love how Amy propped up the welcome sign in the middle of the table, against the rock candy. By the way, if you are planning on doing something similar, check out Oriental Trading. That is where she found the colorful rock candy and the superhero gummy fun packs! She also had pop rocks which looked like kryptonite!

In the front, you can see the custom chocolate bar wrappers- hot pink and royal blue! Isn’t it gorgeous? As party favors, Amy made all the kiddos capes with their initial on the back! I bet they came out SUPER cute (pun intended).

There are a few of the other items in the Comic Book Superhero collection.
