The Holiday Season…. Yes it is that time of year again…. seems like just the other day when we were wrapping up invoicing for the year, delivering holiday gifts and handling all the rush orders at the last possible day. As the calendar would have it, we are not at the end of the year, but we are close! I get asked every year about this time…. What is the hot item? How long do we have to order? Can I get this order back by???
This is a reminder that you still have time to get holiday cards, calendars for 2015 and gifts ordered and back before Christmas or the end of the year depending on what you order and how you want to use it. Apparel is somewhat backed up, we are having to go to 2nd and 3rd choices in many cases. This is typical for apparel, never fails a certain size, style or color is wiped out and back ordered for an extended period of time. The hot area outside of apparel has to be anything Technology related. Those small power packs that come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, Bluetooth speakers, tablet accessories like case and cleaning cloths are doing well also.
Calendars are one of the most practical items that you can hand out at the end of the year, your clients look forward to them! Even with the popularity of electronic devices, look around and see how many calendars you still notice. Calendars are one of those items that have withstood the test of time and the test of change. There will always be a place for a calendar in society. Of all the self-promotions that I personally do, my calendars are asked for more than any item that I hand out.
So don’t wait, don’t procrastinate…. let’s get together and discuss any of your end of year needs. The year is coming to an end and the holidays are approaching fast.
