There is an American Legion Post in our town. Every year they hold a silent auction to benefit local children’s charities. As you can imagine, promoting the auction is really important to its’ success.
Being veterans, they like to include the American flag in their promotions. One of the older guys a WW2 vet, is always concerned about using the flag in their artwork – her just doesn’t want to see the flag (even a picture of it) be dropped to the ground or soiled. That’s cool.
Here’s the way we used custom magnets called save the date magnets to accomplish their promotional goals . . .
We selected digitally printed save the date magnets so that our custom magnet design could include included a really vivid picture of our flag and the date and location of the auction.
We picked custom magnets rather than fliers or buttons or bumper stickers because we knew that the newer custom magnet materials stick well. A custom magnet with the flag on it will stay stuck to the fridge and not fall down to the floor. Also, the new custom magnet materials we selected (www.my1stop.com/save-the-date-magnets.aspx for examples) are printed so that they can be wiped clean if soiled. We met the “respect for the flag” requirement by designing a promotional custom magnet that would not fall tot he ground and could be cleaned up if soiled.
We appreciate the respect for the flag and the service our veterans have provided. Next time you need to promote a special date, think about save the date magnets and using our flag if possible.
