Celebrating the Virtues of the Month at Father Henry Carr

Celebrating the Virtues of the Month at Father Henry Carr.

Below is a letter we received from the Father Henry Carr school: Faith formation is an integral part of our school community.  By focusing, monthly, on different virtues, we are able to recognize students who have exemplified these virtues thus building an inclusive and Christ-centered community.   For the month of September, we chose students who demonstrated the virtue of hospitality by welcoming new Canadians through the N.O.W. program. In October we thanked students who continue to prepare and serve breakfast every morning through the Breakfast Program and those students who help out in the program called Blessing In A Back Pack  which takes place every Friday .In November we will recognize the “Peacemakers” in our community through the S.A.T.(Student Action Team) program. This program allows students to work on different initiatives such as bullying prevention which is implemented in the school community so that this proactive incentive will maintain peace during the school year.   Throughout the year we intend to continue to recognize students who exemplify the virtues at our monthly masses which will, in turn, help our students on their spiritual journey.

Recognizing For Current Success Goes A Long Way!

Recognizing For Current Success Goes A Long Way!

Whether recognizing students, employees or customers, Serkin Promotions has been in the business of creating pride since 1978. We are always developing new programs and unique awards that will not only recognize but encourage those being presented. We develop programs that stand out from others, helping to differentiate us from our competition. No matter what the environment is there are various benefits that occur when award programs are set up. This could be reinforcing positive ongoing behaviour, increasing cultural morale, creating a better environment for success, encouragement of personal growth, helping to achieve increased dedication, performance & productivity. Recognizing success with medallions as an award is a program that many should implement. Medallions can be as simple as a company logo or school crest and as complex as a 3D design and mission statements copy on the second side. Medals are in fact less more cost effective then plaques as awards. Find out more!

Artwork Information

Artwork Information

When talking more about vector art and the importance of it for quality promotional products it is important to note that without high-quality art the final product will not look as good as could be.  While it does take a little longer to create, many companies are usually making their logos with vector art which makes it easy for us to transfer it to any size while keeping its look the same. On products such as pens, where the content and logo has to be reduced to a very small size it is not usually easy to spot blur compared to one that does not have blur but when larger products are started it is noticed in an instant.  If your company ever has trouble with meeting the requirements to allow printing of high quality do not hesitate to let us know and ask how we can help.  We are able to make adjustments as well since we deal with vectors on a daily basis. In some cases, we may ask the logo or content to be redone to fit various standards but we do this only to make sure that your final product will turn out how we want…

5 Reasons Why Promotional Products Work

5 Reasons Why Promotional Products Work

1. Keep Clients Happy Promoting your brand is showing that your company wants to generate more business while making sure all clients are kept happy. By using promotional products your company will provide existing and potential clients with tangible products that will not only be useful to them in the long run but have your brand shown on a constant basis. 2. Innovative Advertising Promotional products are a great way to shift some of your marketing budget into a somewhat non-traditional method of advertising. While promotional products have been used for a long time in marketing, with the new shift in technology and different items available this is something that is starting to become non-traditional. 3. Employee Awards Employees are always working hard and although not looking for true recognition, as they are just doing what they know will help the company, it is always a great idea to start an award program. Award and recognition programs help with boosting employee morale, have a tendency to start positive competition for company growth and leverage success to push people farther. 4. Trade Shows Trade shows & generating leads through trade shows are great when you have promotional products. These promotions can…

Avoiding Common Mistakes

Avoiding Common Mistakes

Pens: Pens are one of the most used promotional products that is ordered on a regular basis. What many companies do not understand is that although a great give out at trade shows and other events the size of said pens are very small for printing on. This means that with a limited amount of space, your company should not try to develop a long message or else your customers won’t be able to read it. Keep it short, simple and make sure your logo is the first thing on. Colors: Promotional products are fantastic but there are many times when customers have a color scheme in mind that in the end just does not work with the logo. The pen, for instance, is great when it stands out, this means bright colors and vibrant tones. But it is also not always the best case scenario. It is said that most of the time light-colored imprinting should be avoided when the background color is light itself. Dark with light and light with dark to combat the tones and help let your message/logo stand out to its full potential. Something You Can’t Print On: There are times in the promotional products…
