Objective: Pixar wanted to design & create printed gift glass sets to commemorate the launch and cast of Finding Nemo. They had to outsource the project with as minimal steps in the process as possible.
Solution: After an in-face client meeting, we sourced the glassware which resulted in an intricately-printed set of (7) glasses housed in pine wood packaging with sizzle and shrink wrap. Movie producers and staff used the fire-branded gift sets to promote Finding Nemo and the movie’s theme of “Just Keep Swimming”.
Schaffer’s Mill Golf & Lake Club • Truckee, CA.
Objective: Schaffer’s Mill wanted to create a lasting impression on buyers of high end homes in an exclusive living community by using high end appreciation gifts.
Solution: JR Hart sourced a variety of gift options but heavily recommended the Country Lambswool Throw packaged in wood boxes. We said it was important to tie Tahoe’s natural beauty into the gift they chose to say “thank you”.
National Championship Game • Tempe, AZ.
Objective: Develop a gift for 1,000 people that had been given to 500 people 4 years earlier (and did we mention the part about the same total budget?)
Solution: JR Hart worked with key bag supplier Gemline to develop a custom bag with better quality hardware to use as media gifts for the 2011 National Championship Game. We delivered 1,000 $90 bags for $55 each, on time,, and on budget. Ask us today how to save money on your next project!
Cal Basketball & Baseball • Berkeley, CA.
Objective: Get people excited and pumped about Cal men’s basketball and baseball teams.
Solution: Rally Towels – why not get crazy and, as JR Hart did, suggest a value added technique to print both orders at once? The client commented on our print expertise in adapting imprint colors to bright color fabrics and saving them unforeseen headaches.
Clif Bar • Berkeley, CA
Objective: Sandals for the entire sales team for a warm climate meeting location, made from sustainable, eco, or biodegradable materials and packaging.
Solution: JR Hart suggested recycled PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) as the sandal material, and organic cotton bag packaging. We highly suggested the bottom of sandal imprint that creates an image on the beach with every step. The result was a fun promotion with salespeople happy while promoting the use of recycled materials into branding all at the same time!
Green Beans Coffee • San Rafael, CA.
Objective: Create a promotional program to drive GBC fans and customers to donate to a soldier-based coffee gift program, well known as the “Cup Of Joe For A Joe” program.
Solution: Medallions that were museum-quality were created, 2 sides of custom art finely printed. The anticipated response rate tripled!
Client: 2WIRE (now Pace) • San Jose, CA.
Objective: Celebrate the company’s 1,000,000th customer and their partnership with AT&T
Solution: We suggested the creation of a packaging specialty: champagne bottle and glass sets, and complete with hardware shaped wine-charms. We printed and inserted a personalized letter to the recipients, the first thing they saw when sliding open the pine wood lid. An “A-1 promotion”!
San Rafael Pacifics Baseball Club • San Rafael, CA.
Objective: Sell more game tickets by promoting the team mascot and local former MLB talent in Marin County.
Solution: JR Hart sensed a strong desire by the minor league client to only invest in promotional items that will “move the dial”. Therefore, we came in with bobble head manufacturing and creativity expertise. Within 6 months we had designed and delivered two effective promotions with bobble heads. Featured were both the team’s mascot, and former team member/Boston Red Sox SP Bill “the Spaceman” Lee … and the brand was further solidified within the community.
