Q: One of my clients has asked me to organise a promotion involving a giant balloon-drop in city centres across the UK. Who can I call to find out more?
A: You could call B-loony or Pioneer, who are experts in this area and will be happy to discuss with you the best way to organise your promotion.
B-loony (01494 774 376), which is based in Buckinghamshire, will provide both the equipment and staff to manage balloon-drops on multiple sites across the country.
Pioneer (01279 501 090) has 85 years' experience of balloon promotions and can print more than 1m a day.
TO THE LETTER
Q: Can you recommend a company that can guarantee to deliver envelopes on time? We have been let down very badly in the past.
A: Mekvale Envelopes, based in South London, is one of the most reliable firms around.
With 12 dedicated overprinting machines, its employees will work through the night, if necessary, to make sure your order goes out on time.
Mekvale (020 8673 4367) promises that customers who have any concerns about timing will be able to track the progress of their order at any time.
Q: Can you suggest a reliable company that makes promotional clothing, preferably one that would be able to handle a project from start to finish?
A: You could give the BTC Group (020 8569 2250) a call. It claims to offer a complete range of services, from origination to realisation', for which it employs design and repro staff who will create original work from your brief.
Alternatively, you could contact Wellworn (01422 885 945), which has more than 30 years' experience in marketing design and printing.
TOUR DE FORCE
Q: We need to employ some promotional staff who will tour the country, demonstrating and distributing an unusual cosmetics range. Any ideas?
A: Two companies with a good record in running roadshow demonstrations are Promo Power (01623 827 944) and Kommando (0870 794 2018).
Promo Power supplies staff with experience of everything from small roadshows to nationwide sampling campaigns.
Kommando, meanwhile, promises its talented employees can 'ignite the imagination'.
