April 2012 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
With our luck in the Midwest, we’ll probably have one last snowfall before spring really hits. But for the rest of you lucky people, spring is heading your way! And as the weather grows warmer, the list of awareness dates grows longer. But that’s great! It means more opportunities for you to reach out to your customers!
Since flowers, trees, and grass will start growing again, it’s no wonder that we have so many environmentally-themed days. Imprinting items like seeded confetti or bagged trees will be perfect for Earth Day, Arbor Day, or Garden Week.
Check out what else is going on in April (click to enlarge):
Start the month off on a good note by embracing April Fool’s Day and National Humor Month. Consider letting employees (only ones who opt-in!) play harmless pranks on each other as long as they promise not to ruin personal or work property. Pass out laughing pens and watch as your Jim-equivalent puts your Dwight-equivalent’s stapler in jello.
National Volunteer Month is the perfect time to get out and volunteer in your community. Either sponsor an event with some fabulous giveaways, or let your employees take some time out of their work day to volunteer locally. Handing out imprinted water bottles or t-shirts during a volunteer event is a great way to give back to your community and generate positive PR for your brand.
We all know the saying: “April showers bring May flowers.” So if your customers are going to be running or walking through the rain, they might as well do so in some of your customized umbrellas. Also, get a handle on your taxes, stick to Organize Your Files Week, or reward employees on Administrative Professionals Day with a gorgeous padfolio or briefcase.
But we here at Quality Logo Products are most excited that April is Stress Awareness Month. After all, as your primary source for stress balls, we know all about spreading brand impressions while relieving tension! Whether you opt for cute stress balls, color changing stress balls, or the coolest stress ball of all time, there’s no bad option to kick stress to the curb!
If any of the products featured in our calendar strike your fancy, you can find them on our site here: Rabbit Stress Reliever, Executive Crescent Padfolio, and Double Wall Acrylic Tumbler With Straw (16 Oz.).
