Printing Options available on Advent Calendars
Essentially, there are two types of personalisation available. We can provide space for an imprint, into this we can print your artwork which can include your company’s logo, website or contact details. With a fully customised design, the whole cardboard outer and even the inner doors can be personalised with your artwork. Choose from a range of stock designs or create an advent calendar design unique to your company. We can also arrange this for you. Additional print areas include branding on the chocolate wrappers. This is an excellent way to engage with your customers and market a new product, service or promotion every day. Other options include bespoke moulded chocolates, foil lidding, print to the inside of each window, chocolate wrappers and to the outer carton.
When we receive your artwork, we can provide a full PDF proof, showing you how your artwork will look on your chosen promotional item. Once the pdf proof is approved we can dispatch a hard copy, which we will be sent in the post. The lead time starts from when the hard copy is approved. We can hold onto your order until a date that suits you. We recommend delivery before the 1st of December to leave time for delivery to your clients. Remember, you really need your artwork signed off early and definitely before the last print runs in October.
Choose a style to suit your artwork
We offer a wide range of Advent Calendars at Redbows, including our Traditional A4 Advent Calendars, Napoli Advent Calendars and 12 Day Advent Calendars. It is important to consider the timing when purchasing promotional Advent Calendars. Those ordering in early September can experiment with different artwork templates with our unlimited Virtual Visuals. Once we reach mid-September it's important to guarantee delivery, especially if your planning to post your advents. The cut off date for our Lindt, Toblerone and Milka Advent Calendars is mid-August.
- Choose colours that compliment your logo and give impact.
- Whilst white space works well the imprint area is relatively small on our A5 Desktop Advent Calendars and 12 Day Advent Calendars.
- Design an imprint layout that compliments your logo and calendar style; A3, A4, A5
- Choose an advent calendar layout that matches your logo orientation; portrait or landscape.
- Check your contact details; contact number, website address, social networks.
What to consider when buying Printed Advent Calendars
To ensure your advent calendars reach your clients in impeccable condition we can provide postal cartons. The postal cartons keep the advents and artwork in pristine condition during storage and delivery. Postal Cartons are an optional extra but essential if delivering to more than one address across the UK. At Redbows we also provide a complete fulfilment service. So, all you have to do is provide us with the names and addresses of your team and we can do the rest. We will mail your branded Advent Calendars to your clients for you. Please contact us for further requirements.
Early Discounts for orders in August
Take advantage of ‘early order’ discounts in August when we provide extra incentives for printing advent calendars. Incentives can also be held in September and October, but it depends on supply and demand. To guarantee early order discounts we suggest ordering in late August or early September. This ensures your Advent Calendars will be delivered on time and to a date that suits you. For Lindt, Toblerone and Milka we suggest ordering by mid-august.
Quantity over Print Colours
We always recommend setting a maximum spend no matter what promotional items a company is considering. Once you have set a budget, our sales representatives will work with you to maximise the effect of your chosen items. If quantity is essential, we recommend choosing a part-personalised calendar over a full colour digital advent calendar. This means you will receive more calendars to promote your brand to a wider audience.
If you need a specific chocolate type or a custom mould for the chocolates, then this can also be arranged. Milk chocolate is the nation’s favourite, but we can also supply dark, white, Fair Trade, Vegan, Vegetarian, UK-manufactured or Belgian Chocolates. If you have special requirements let us know. We also offer Lindt, Toblerone, Raffello and Milka Advent Calendars which are an esteemed favourite in the office.
Redbows offers a complete artwork service. Simply send us a rough layout of your design or logo and we will show you how your imprint will work on your chosen Advent Calendar.
