What is a welcome pack?

A welcome pack is a self-defining concept. It is a pack of different items and useful stuff that are given to someone as a welcome greeting. It is commonly assembled from appropriate items depending on the circumstances and prepared in order to facilitate the necessary information for a newcomer.


Historically welcome packs have been associated with the work environment. Simple work desk tools to complete the office duties, such as a notebook, pen, pencil and calendar, were given away on the first day. As years passed and the concept of corporate culture and corporate responsibility evolved, welcome packs reinforced their original purpose and turned into one of the marketing tools for the companies.


The welcome pack got transformed into a sort of statement of what the company believes in and how it treats the employees. Depending on the company, welcome packs include intangible social benefits and items that respect social responsibility, that is why there are more and more job offers that include welcome packs as an extra reason for a high-skilled candidate to apply for the open position.


Building the external image of the company starts with building this image in the eyes of the employees, they are your advocates and speakers to the world.



Father's Day is not among the holidays that have a long history or got its acknowledgment at once. Yet nowadays it is becoming more and more popular in different parts of the world and the UK is not an exception to that trend. And no wonder why! The concept of celebrating Father's Day is based on logic and common sense, which is to say "Thank you Dad for everything that you have given to me. I love you!". And let's be honest, sometimes it is easier to show these feelings through a gift than saying it out loud.


So let's start with some awesome ideas for the gifts. And if you have a couple of minutes more and curiosity to learn about the origins of the holiday, traditions of celebrating it, and why it is important to keep this tradition alive, just scroll down the article and have a look.


Classical Father's Day gifts


We will start with some traditional ideas of the gifts that proved through history that they will always be appreciated and relevant.


1. A book

A book is the best gift at all times and occasions. If your father is a big reader that this idea is not classical and simple but also very relevant since it will not be put on the shelf and forgotten. You can choose from the new works of a favourite author of your father, or a limited edition of the favourite book. It can also be a try-out of a new genre from the ones that your father usually prefers. Has he read the winners of prestige publishing awards, such as Nobel prize in Literature, Pulitzer Prize, Publishing Prize or Commonwealth Writers Prize as an example.


Make an extra touch and sign a book. Put in handwriting the greetings for this occasion on the inner side of a title page or dedication page.


2. Personalised T-shirt

One of the most popular and common gifts for Father's Day is a personalised T-shirt. The good point of this idea is that it can be always repeated and has plentiful options for the designs and room for imagination. It can be used for different purposes: for homeware, for trips or for doing sport. Spor T-shirts will be always reminding about the bond between a parent and a child as well as spending time together doing some sport or funny activity.


Why not offer a set of T-shirts that would depict something that they have in common. Something that would represent both of them or show how alike they are. For example, a set of T-shirts for the father and his son or sons with a funny picture of them fooling around or doing some sport together and a text below the image "Like father like son".

In this day and age where more and more marketing campaigns are fully based and conducted only online, does promotional merchandising still work?

The simple answer is YES, and better than ever before.

In an extensive market research study conducted by the British Promotional Merchandising Association in 2013, 1000 people from different sectors were asked about how promotional products have had an impact on their professional and personal lives. This study showed that 94.1% would like to receive promotional products more often and 55.9% report that they use the promotional products they received several times. The same study shows that 50.7% believes that promotional products have the best ability to get them to take action, more particularly they speak about Mugs, Pens, and USB Flash Drives being the promotional items that urge them to recall or contact the advertiser.


Choosing what kind of promotional product you want to have for your advertising campaigns is not always easy, and when there are multiple variations of that product it can be even trickier. Luckily, at Camaloon we understand this struggle and want to make it as straightforward as possible for you to make your decision and be pleased with what you receive. Our personalised magnets are a popular choice, but which ones are right for you? Let's go through the options.


Promotional flexible magnets

Our promotional flexible fridge magnets come in a thickness of either 0.4 or 0.75 mm and are made from PVC (the abbreviation of a widely produced plastic polymer, polyvinyl chloride) with your choice of matte or glossy finish. Thanks to their price, these fridge magnets are a great choice for large advertising campaigns where the goal is to increase brand visibility. While fridge magnets can be used as a whimsical ornament or simply serve as decoration, they are often also used to hold the shopping lists of your clients or even the art made by their children. Whatever the function, the key thing is that once printed with your logo with full-color UV printing, your brand will always be on show.
