A Case For Awards

Posted by

Awards and recognition programs are a key component of keeping employees motivated and building loyal relationships with clients. Here are three ways the JAFFA® brand from BIC Graphic NA made a lasting and positive impression with award and recognition recipients.


A Case for Employee Appreciation

Item: #25039 JAFFA® Round Zinc Coaster
Purpose: End of year gifts for employees
Audience: Insurance firm employees

An insurance firm had a particularly prosperous year and wanted give employees end of year gifts to show their appreciation. They liked the idea of not only a stylish mug, but also a nice coaster with the company branding that employees could keep at their desks.

The firm placed the coasters, mugs and a gift card on each employee’s desk during the New Year break. Employees came back to a pleasant surprise and the gifts help inspire the team which continued YOY growth during the first quarter. The firm loved the visual in the office of the branded coasters lining the employee’s desks and also purchased additional coaster sets (#25164) for each of their conference rooms.

A Case for Incentive Rewards

Item: #36502 JAFFA® Wave Award
Purpose: Welcome gift for incentive winners
Audience: Software company sales representatives

A software company held a sales incentive contest for reps to win a trip to the Caribbean. The company wanted to build a welcome basket so the reps would feel appreciated immediately upon entering their hotel rooms. One item they wanted to include in the basket is an award recognizing the achievement that earned the salesperson their trip.

The Wave Award tied into the beach theme perfectly, and was a compact enough size to easily fit into luggage for the trip home. The sales reps appreciated the warm welcome and felt the award complemented with the other vacation theme items in the basket while also looking good on their award shelves and desks at home.

  • Deep etch imprint, base options available

A Case for Gifts

Item: #36871 JAFFA® Scalloped Edge Vase
Purpose: Gift vase for use during wedding ceremonies
Audience: Engaged couples

A church wanted an elegant and useful gift for couples who chose their venue for their wedding ceremonies. Because they wanted to imprint a meaningful message on the gift, they turned to a promotional products distributor for guidance.

The church was impressed with the idea of a vase to hold the bride’s floral bouquet during important moments of the ceremony because it then doubled as a gift for the couple to use long into their marriage. The 1-1/2” x 2” imprint area was the perfect size for their imprint and the scalloped edges framed the message beautifully.

Couples were pleasantly surprised to receive such a beautiful a keepsake that was part of their wedding day. The church felt the design and imprint gracefully embodied their message and was happy to give these couples a meaningful, long-lasting gift.

  • Modern crystal vase with unique chiseled design cascading down each edge
  • Scalloped edges elegantly frame the imprint
