20th of August, 2010
Hi Elyse,

Spring is in the air and we can now take comfort in the knowledge that the worst of those cold temperatures we recently experienced are over. With Spring our thoughts turn to the Spring Racing Carnival and in particular our most famous race - The Melbourne Cup! Most companies stop for the biggest race in the nation and at the very least hold office sweeps. If you happen to be from Melbourne then you have the day off to attend the great race or one of the many race related functions. View our Melbourne Cup Products online.

Before Melbourne Cup comes along with the usual fanfare and glitz, we need to all remember that it is Father's Day on the 5th of September. It is a perfect opportunity to say thank you to Fathers and Father figures in our lives and to acknowledge how important they are to us. Many restaurants will be offering special treats and offers for Father's Day as well as local clubs and organisations. At JEM Promotional Products we have a large range of products that are ideal for using as Father's Day Gifts or for Gift with Purchase campaigns so take a moment to view our range of products online.

Talking about important dates we are reminding our clients that Christmas is not that far away at all if you are considering producing a Custom Made product which has a lead-time of 8 to 12 weeks it is important you start organising it now. Here are our Christmas deadlines for all services:

  • Local Stock branded with your logo - 1 to 2 weeks depending on current production levels

  • Custom Made Express Orders - 6 to 8 weeks with limited customisation or air freight delivery

  • Fully Custom Made Products - 10 to 12 weeks for full product customisation and delivery via sea freight

Important Note: Chinese New Year (28th of January-13th of February) can and does impact on deliveries in the new year so be aware that this will have to be considered if you are intending to place an indent order in January or February.

We are often asked to suggest products for Christmas Gifts and more often than not we suggest Summer Promotional Products. By far the best feed-back we receive is how Summer Lifestyle Products are the best received gifts used by our clients. Mostly it is because the gifts are used time and time again when our clients enjoy the hot weather on our beaches, parks and sporting fields. Although many items are stock items and can usually be easily sourced depending on stock levels many are indent only products so this is an important consideration when ordering Christmas Gifts. We also have a great article on choosing the ideal Christmas Gift so take a moment to read it and make gift choosing easier at the busiest time of the year.

Also a quick reminder to any clients who normally orders Customised Diaries, that time is running out for custom made diaries so contact JEM to make sure you are not too late with your 2011 Customised Diaries requirements.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you are considering custom made products to be used as a Christmas Gifts or any of the other products featured in this month's newsletter.
Our team will be happy to assist you with any promotional products needs.

Father's Day Gifts and Merchandise
custom branded beerFather's Day is a great excuse to spoil fathers and to say thank you for all their hard work and support. Many organisations hold special functions on Father's Day and also try and find Gifts that will make the special day memorable for all involved. Marketers also see the opportunity to offer Gift with Purchase items at this time of the year.

Sometimes the best products that often turn out to be the most memorable are are not necessarily the most expensive so gifts such as Custom Branded Beer can be really popular.

New Branding Method: Full Colour Direct Digital Printing
Have you ever been frustrated because your Graphic Designer has created an amazing piece of artwork and then when you go to have it printed on a promotional product you are told that you are limited to spot colours or worse yet a 1 colour print?

Gone are the days of these restrictions because JEM Promotional Products now have a new artwork decoration method called Direct Digital Printing where we can print full colour artwork including photos onto a range promotional products including pens, rulers, eraser, nail files, stress shapes and pencils. Here is an example of Direct Digital print onto a Letter Opener that also holds post it flags inside:

Full Colour Direct Digital Print

You are not limited to a flat surface either, this new print method can be used on round products. We have not had a chance to test every product out there yet so if you have a specific product you want printed it is best to send us the product details so that we can let you know whether the product will be suitable for a direct digital print.

The only restriction we have at the moment is we can't print products that are higher than 5cm. This new print method is so exciting but the other fantastic thing that needs to be mentioned is the price! This new method is cheaper than traditional branding methods such as Pad Printing. Pad printing requires the creation of a physical rubber stamp which can be costly and there is normally a set-up per cost per colour so that the stamp can be cleaned and set up again. With this new method there is only 1 small set-up charge and you only pay it once no matter how many colours are used. Why not compare the two prices on your next promotional products quote.

Woven Beach Towels with a personalised name

Personalised TowelsBeach towels are one of the most popular summer items. If you are looking for an item that is going to please a large group of people I would definitely recommend a towel as most Australians will head to the beach or have a swim in the backyard pool over summer and so they will definitely appreciate your gift.

This particular beach towel can actually be personalised with an individual name. Whether an item is cheap or expensive, if it is personalised with our own name we become much more reluctant to throw the item away. Personalisation shows that you have put more thought into your gift and that it is not just a mass gift that has been sent out to a whole database.

Melbourne Cup and Horse Industry Merchandise
There is only race that stops the nation and inspires most of us to place a bet or at the very least take part in office sweeps. The race is of  course the Melbourne Cup.

Melbourne Cup

At JEM we have quite a few products that are ideal when used as merchandise either for the Melbourne Cup or in general for any Horse Industry related company or event.

The Melbourne Cup was born following the quest of the Victoria Turf Club to put on a "good handicap" which would rival its counterpart, the Victoria Jockey Club. While 1860s racing administrators were enthusiastic and visionary in many ways, not in their wildest dreams would they have thought the Cup would become what we know it today. The Melbourne Cup is Australia's most prestigious horse-racing event.
