Think about the number of times you have received food gifts during the holiday season. Do you remember how good the food tasted? Do you remember who sent you the gift? Corporate cookie gifts make wonderful business gifts. Long ago when business was at its peak, companies used to send individual gifts to their clients. But now with budgets still considered tight, many businesses have opted to send a larger gift for an office to share, instead of to one recipient.
When selecting a cookie company, make sure they actually manufacturer the cookies you will be sending or at least package them fresh from the oven the same day they ship. Often times, especially with the big box stores, and the specialty clubs the cookie gifts are package months ahead and filled with preservatives, so that when your customer receives your gift it doesn’t taste fresh, the way it should. A good cookie manufacturer will bake cookies and ship them on the same day. This way your recipient will receive the freshest quality gift and remember who sent it to them.
Now is the time to start thinking about ordering cookie samples. Be prepared to pay for the cookie samples and/or shipping costs. Some companies may also offer to send you a spec sample with your logo or design so you can get a feel for how your design will look once you have placed your order. Four color process canisters can be used as commemorative collector canisters, come up with a new design each year, add the date and now you have a tin that your clients will look forward to adding to their collection – they are also perfect for weddings, thank you gifts, company anniversaries, corporate outings and holiday gifts. If you want your tins sure to be kept, make sure that your photo or 4 color art is actually printed right on the lid, not placed on a label or a sticker.
