October 2011 Holidays, Observances, and Awareness Dates: Plan Your Promotions!
Ah, October. Nothing says fall like entering the tenth month of the year and bundling up in a cozy scarf with a mug of hot chocolate. There’s a lot to look forward to this month: schools being off for Columbus Day, techies and internet junkies finally getting their dues, and field trips! For all of you costume, candy, or horror movie nuts out there – rejoice! It’s almost Halloween.
With National Boss Day and Improve Your Home Office Week, October is the time to focus on your company. Employees can pitch in on an imprinted pen for their boss, and bosses can return the favor by passing out corporate gifts for desks at home or at the office. Foodies will rejoice over World Vegetarian Day, National Pumpkin Day, and National Pizza Month.
Here’s what else is going on this month (click to enlarge):
Libraries, bookstores, and schools can appeal to the bibliophile clients and promote literacy with custom bookmarks. The whole area serves as a canvas for your logo and contact information, and you can even add some facts about books or famous authors. Any of our animal stress balls will be great reminders of National Animal Safety and Protection Month, and their whimsical designs make them high retention items.
As always, we’re here to help you plan your next promotional item! If you need some help, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our excellent Quality Logo Products representatives by phone (866-312-5646), by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), by live chat, or dropping us a comment below!
