In her role as Account Manager Kicki supported our customers with professionalism and personality. She was an excellent Creon ambassador.

A major Swedish-Danish fuel company asked Creon to create a collection of station staff uniforms that would express their new tone of voice and at the same time convey a warm welcome to customers they meet every day. The result was a comfortable collection of impressive uniforms and related items, for men and women, with a casual style and a modern look. Gear up for change. Providing your employees with new staff uniforms is a very effective way to bring people together and refresh the spirit of a company. Especially during a period when the organization is going through a major change, for example, when two companies are merging into one. The simple act of putting on your new staff uniform at the start of a working day reminds you that changes are taking place and that your employer needs your support if they are to be successful.
One great thing about branded product media is that it goes places and it is seen and used in situations where your product or service might not normally be noticed. Why is that good? Because it can make more people curious about your brand and aware of it. Physical branded items can also be used to support external and internal digital communications campaigns such as corporate social media events. Creon has helped its customers to get employees to engage in their social media activities. Call us and we can help you!

There are many factors that will determine the cost of your branded items. Quality is one. Quantity is another. Design, materials and manufacture also important cost factors. Base your choice on your budget and keep in mind the effect that you want your branded items to have on the people who receive them. If you are rewarding employees for a job well done it can be wise to invest in items that truly show your appreciation and express value. Even event giveaway items should have a perceived value. After all, they are things that represent you and what you stand for. Don’t think cheap. Think value.
