the importance of advertising and branding in the choice of your corporate branding and promotional items

A number of people understand branding and advertising as an interchangeable thing. Most people see these tasks as the same. Of course both are stemmed from marketing. However, there is a difference between the two.  Advertising precedes branding; a product needs to be advertised in an effective way that helps establish the product as a brand that performs what it promises.

Branding is just like a relationship between two people taking months and years to build but takes a second to break. We at Giftwrap understand the sensitivity a brand holds in the minds of your target audience. It has always been hard to build a brand, and even harder to maintain it.

These days, it has become crucial for corporate organizations to keep the value of their brands amidst cut-throat competitions where ‘pull-others-down’ strategies are the norms. The way you brand your products through packaging, brand names, slogans, designs and other elements, determines the value of your brand. Branding gives you a valuable tool to get your brand in front of the audience. Corporate items and corporate clothing with your logo on them reinforce your brand in the minds of your consumers and clients.

Ink is pressed through the screen by a squeegee and only transfers where the logo was burned.

Digital Printing: This is best for any product where you can glue Vinyl or stickers; products like rulers, Frisbees, keyring’s, pens etc. Stickers are digitally printed in full-colour by computerized Vinyl Printers and then automatically cut to an assortment of shapes like square, rectangle, triangle, circle and oval, by computerized Vinyl Cutters.
