Building Better Welcome Bags for Retreats, Fundraisers, and Company Parties
As you start planning your corporate retreat, nonprofit fundraisers, and summer company parties, keep Standard Wax in mind for a welcome bag item your guests will be thrilled to receive! We love working with nonprofits, event planners, project coordinators, or corporate teams to help kick off their parties. There is no better way to say “hey, thanks for being here” than including awe-inspiring custom candles that tell your unique story- whatever the occasion.
If you’re building a welcome bag, we have three tips to turn it into something your guests will certainly not throw away.
People want quality over quantity. Give them something they’d be excited to take home and not just throw away.
This just in: boring branded pens are OUT. Beautifully designed custom candles are in. For your conference bag, women’s retreat welcome gift, or fundraising swag bag, add a private label candle to the mix! Here at Standard Wax, we have spent years sourcing quality materials to ensure the end product is top notch.
As you customize your project, we are helping you design a stylish candle that your guests will be excited to take home. With our collection of quality vessels, 100% soy wax, and crowd-pleasing scents, we rethink the idea of the private label candle. Reach out to start your project for your next company party or corporate retreat!
Be original but represent your brand. Take the time to design something unique instead of just slapping your logo onto everything.
While adding your logo can get the job done, go above and beyond by giving your event a little personality. Work with a designer to add some color and life to your event to make an attractive collection of swag items. You might think the best strategy is to have your logo on everything for brand awareness…but what does it say when it ends up in the trash? Take the time to design something fun and thoughtful that people will want to keep long after the event is over.
For this summer tennis tournament, graphic designer, Joey Fisher, adds tons of color to the design turning this swag bag into memorable merchandise. For the candle design, we simply matched the design with a complementary Navy Large Tin. (Bonus: our tins always come lid for a finished look and makes them perfect for travel)
Thought and intention go a long way when putting together any welcome bag. Think about how your guests will be using the bag throughout the event!
When designing your welcome bag for corporate retreats, nonprofit fundraisers, and summer company parties, keep in mind the environment and how this welcome bag will be a convenience to your guest instead of an inconvenience. Keep the items light if they’re going to be on their feet all day. Supply them with a water bottle if they’ll be outside. If they’re traveling, be sure to keep things TSA friendly. (And yes! Our candles can be put in a checked bag and brought through TSA)
For the All Love Foundation Say Yes to Tennis Summer Tournament, it was a no brainer to make sure a tennis racket fit inside their tote. We love how they thought about the tiny detail and had a big impact.
