    The Holidays will be here faster than you know it and most business are preparing for that rush.  Although you may not be a big box retailer, that doesn’t mean holiday season sales aren’t for you.  Here are 8 great marketing tips to amp up your T-Shirt  sales and business reputation during the holidays:

    1.  Gift Certificates and EventsOffer gift certificates, and special events on your social media platforms.  Use Twitter or Facebook, or even instagram to pass out special holiday codes that can be used in store during certain days and times.
    2. Get involved with Charity - Tis’ the season of giving and what a great way of displaying that spirit with example.  Get your staff  involved in something charitable like a toy drive or packaging holiday food for those in need is a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit.  Make sure to take photos and encourage customers to get involved as well on Twitter or your Facebook page.
    3. Holiday Theme Contest - Promote the holiday season by putting together a contest with a holiday theme.  Mention it on all your social media channels.
    4. BOGO - Get creative with different promotions, offer a buy one get one free promotion and advertise it through your various digital marketing approaches in social media as well as email.
    5. Holiday Video - Show your customers what a fun and personable business you have by creating a holiday video.  
    6. Offer Sales - Take advantage of existing clientele contacts via email and run holiday email marketing campaigns, offer incentives like FREE shipping, time sensitive sales, storewide discounts, or pre-wrapped gifts.
    7. Holiday Cards - Who says digital all the way? Get down with the good ole’ fashion tradition and send out printed holiday cards.  Your customers will appreciate the time to acknowledge them during such a hectic time of year.
    8. Write It Out - Have a website? Write a blog regarding the holidays, whether it’s promoting your business or promoting your community, it’s always nice to keep customers in the loop.

    Here at AnaJet, we celebrate the success of our partners and recognize peak performance.  We’re thrilled to hear that Christal Jordan, owner of OurSocieTee.com has been successful in growing her garment printing business since we last spoke to her. Originally operating from a garage, she recently expanded to an 1100 square foot facility and has had to hire more employees to keep up with demand.  It is no secret that owning an AnaJet Printer has been a great experience for Jordan.

    Jordan also offers advice on how to successfully promote your business through various forms of social media and traditional networking.

    Graph Expo 14Graph Expo 14 took place at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago last week and AnaJet was there printing away at the largest and most comprehensive exhibition and conference for the graphic communications industry in the Americas. 

    At the show, attendees were privileged to see the latest and greatest of digital, inkjet, offset, flexo, gravure and hybrid technologies.  Attendees also saw products and services for the commercial, transactional, converting and package printing, publishing, mailing, in-plant, photo imaging, marketing and industrial printing industries this year.  So basically, AnaJet was primed to showcase the utter flexibility and utility of our printers.

    This show was such a success for AnaJet that we had a record number of people visit our booth and walking away with free t-shirt samples.  There was literally a queue of people who received demonstrations of our mPower i-series.  If you came to our booth and did not receive a sample or demo, we encourage you to contact us by email and talk with one of our representatives.

    If you’re looking to find us at our next trade show, AnaJet will be attending SGIA Las Vegas from October 23rd through the 28th.

    Grafinca Peru 2014In September of 2014, AnaJet was printing away at the Grafinca trade show in Lima, Peru.  This trade show based in South America is positioned as the premier event for users and those involved in the world of visual communication: Graphic Arts, Advertising, and Photography.  At Grafinca, show goers get a great example of what’s available and new in the market.  But it is also an opportunity for visitors to see, understand and come face to face with the market leaders and industry innovators.

    Grafinca is not just another show.  It teaches too!  Grafinca facilitates the approach and proper understanding between customers and suppliers fostering strategic, economic, healthy, fruitful and productive relationships.

    AnaJet was represented at Grafinca by our international distributor based out of Peru, GrafiMundo.  Hector Hinostroza, Technical Manager at GrafiMundo, was on hand at the show demonstrating what direct to garment printers can offer the world of visual communication.  Hector recently completed training at AnaJet Headquarters in Costa Mesa, California, and is able to install, maintain, and repair all AnaJet Printers.

    At Grafinca, Hector demonstrated the AnaJet SPRINT to all visitors that came by his booth.  The demos were non-stop.  GrafiMundo saw all types of visitors: graphic art students, ink jet and digital printers, screen printing shop owners, and promotional product resellers. 

    If you’re in Peru and you’d like to see GrafiMundo demonstrate our AnaJet Printers to you in person, be sure to check them out at Expo Textil Peru from October 23rd to the 26th.
