A sticky situation with Post-it Notes (and gum)

Since we print 3M Post-it Notes, we love all things post it notes.

We came across this gum package in Japan. The gum comes with a little post-it note pad! The purpose is to put your already chewed gum in the paper before throwing it out. But we like to think people also use it to write mini-notes!

Custom printed cups, napkins and plates

We can always tell the temperature of the economy and the country by what’s selling and these past few weeks, actually, probably the past month or so, we’ve seen a huge uptick in custom printed paper cups and plastic cups as well as out custom napkins and plates. The country is coming back!

This promises to be a new awakening, a new summer – a new world. As we start exiting from the pandemic, businesses are opening up and families and friends are having fun events, again. From birthday parties to 4th of July plans, it’s all happening.

And coffee shops and restaurants are all blooming again.

Our custom printed paper cups, manufactured paper cups, are tested and conform to applicable CPSIA and Prop 65 standards. All of our products are compliant. U.S. Food manufacturing standards are used. We follow all protocols. Our products are free of BPA and PCB’s. All of our cups are made in the USA with locally sourced materials.

Lots of people have been ordering personalized plastic cups for parties and such, but of course we have been selling lots of double wall paper cups – one of our newest items – full color, personalized double wall paper cups. They are not much more than single wall paper cups, in fact, in many cases, the pricing is the same – and they save you from having to order coffee sleeves – but we do have custom printed coffee sleeves and java jackets, if that is what you would like.

But the full color double wall paper cups are bright, and beautiful and they ship fast – in as little as a week’s time.

We have received our Food Safety System Certification: FSSC 22000. This internationally recognized certification program for our food safety management system means you can order your cup promotions from us knowing they are safe. Based on the data we have, we are one of the few FSSC 22000 certified cup manufacturer in the industry.

We are ready, our presses are ready and we would love to print, manufacture and ship our lovely line of paper and plastic food items to you for a summer of fun!

Our custom printed post-it notes are still the same price in the New Year!

Our custom printed Post-it Notes are the same price this year – pricing has not gone up. This is about the fifth year, maybe more, that we held the price on genuine 3M post-it notes! Could be more, we lost track! And of course our wholesale personalized post it notes and notepads start with low minimums. Order as little as six post it note pads – up to a million!

Customers seem to be ordering more and more these days, as during these pandemic times, it seems that personalized notepads are more economical than most other forms of marketing and promotion. For literally cents per sheet, businesses can get their messages out to the public, but simply sticking the sticky notes to things!

For example – pizza boxes. We just did a very large order for a pizza chain in Oregon. They plan on promoting their specials by placing custom printed post-it notes on their pizza boxes. Also lots of realtors now are using them to “buy ugly houses.” They stick the pads on doors and get the attention of the homes owners for pennies! And it works, we have been printing real estate pads for over 20 years now!

There are so many uses for the custom pads – many offices use the post it notes as forms. While the pads are used as notepads, so many are used as forms, notices and advertisements.

You can see our full line of custom printed post-it notes here: thediscountprinter.com/post-itnotes

There are the usual pads – but there are cube pads, where the full sides are printed and there are pop-up notes and shaped pads – ever think of having a pad with your logo on it shaped as a house? How about a heart? There are so many options.

And best of all, all our custom post-its are wholesale post it notes and are shipped in the US free of charge. And there are no set-up or hidden fees, either!

Antimicrobial Pens – custom printed

nurse2How many times did you pass around a pen today? Do you know who had the pen you are using before you? How many times did put the pen up to your mouth or chew on it?

We have a solution for this very unsanitary practice.

We are thrilled to announce the addition of Antimicrobial Pens to our custom printed pens line.

Custom printed paper cups; they’re not just for coffee shops anymore

cups11We print a lot of paper cups – millions over the years, and and something interesting about them that many people many not know – while they are used for coffee and cold drinks, they aren’t all printed for coffee shops. Yes, we print for many coffee shops all over the country, but we also print for schools, churches and offices.

One of our largest clients is a law firm. They order 5000 12 oz. custom printed paper cups every two months; that’s 30,000 cups a year! And all of the cups are used for clients who pass through the office. They brand their paper cups with their law firm office. We have been printing these for them for years. It first stared with the name of the firm in plain type and then a logo and then when the law firm changed names and added a partner, it went to another logo and a full color wrapped cup! I’m sure their clients appreciate the extra effort when they grab  cup of coffee at the law firm.

doublewalled2
From our double wall cup line.

We recently printed 10,000 paper cups for a church, which orders them a few times a year. They also have a logo and it’s printed on the cups. It’s a small gesture, but it is noticed by congregants and folks passing through. They use them at meetings and for coffee and cake every Sunday after services. A few realtors order from us on a regular basis and use the cups at their offices, but mostly at open houses.

We also do custom printed paper cups for schools who use them for parent-teacher events and also family reunions and even brides order them for weddings.

custom-imprinted-full-color-paper-cups

They are inexpensive and they leave a lasting impression. Auto shops, banks, doctor’s offices, stores, clubs, even pharmaceutical companies order custom coffee cups; and many ad agencies order custom printed paper cups to promote their clients’ new products, we do lots of those. We also do many paper cups for the fashion industry which are used at offices and at fashion shows and events.

papercup5

We have standard paper cups and just recently started printing full color double wall cups, so you don’t need to worry about java jackets, although we custom print java jackets and coffee sleeves, too.

We streamlined our new 2020 calendar line

6702

Our new 2020 calendar line is up and available for your custom imprint! We’re ready for the new year!

We pared the calendars down this year to make it easier to order. In the past there just was too much to choose from. What we did was take our most popular calendars, the ones people buy the most often and we set up one page, rather than the various pages we used to have. This will make it easier to scan the images for the theme you prefer and you can order that way.

6102We still have all the other styles and if you would prefer one of them, just ask. We’ll pull it out of storage and custom print that up for you.

We have all the favorite styles – wall calendars, planners and desk calendars.

You can see our new improved page here: thediscountprinter.com/Calendars/

You can start ordering now! The new 2020 line is all available and ready to go.

Saved by the pen

pens2I was in New York for July 4th week. My cousins and I had gone out to the beach for the weekend. When we got back to the city after the long weekend, one cousin dropped me off at the subway station in Queens, where I would take a quick subway ride back to the city (Manhattan). I jumped out of her car at about 10 pm and ran into the subway.

Just then, I realized I left my cell phone in her car. I ran out again but she had driven off. No problem I thought, I’ll just Uber over to her house, but how could I do that without my phone? And how could I even hale cab and go there since I don’t remember her address?

I realized, I didn’t remember anyone’s address or phone number. It was all in the phone! After I got back to my hotel I realized I had a pen she had given me. A pen my own company had printed for her. On the pen was her company’s logo and a couple of phone numbers – one being her cell number! Saved by the pen.

I called from the hotel and arranged to get my phone the next day.

So many people are using custom printed pens as business cards these days and I can see why. I don’t know if I would have saved her business card, but I had saved the pen and was using it in the hotel!

We sell all sorts of custom printed pens at our website here: thediscountprinter.com/pens-pencils

Check them out, they will come in hand for so many reasons!

In the Millennial Pink

Paper Colors

We changed up our pink. Regarding 3M Post-it Notes. Our Cherry Blossom Pink has been made a bit brighter and lighter and is now “Millennial Pink,” which is a throwback to the original color.

So many of you asked for the original and now it’s back!

Millennial Pink is one of our standard 3M post-it note colors along with canary and white. We also offer recycled papers – Spring Green, Canary Yellow, White and Sky Blue and with the Neon and Ultras, we have Ultra Yellow, Neon Orange, Neon Lime and Neon Pink.

Many of you may remember colors we had in the past, which frankly were not great sellers. There were black and purple at one point! They were not very easy to read when printed, but would be great with metallic pens if you wrote on them!

But if you’re feeling in the pink, try the Millennial Pink on your next order. Spice it u pa little!

All of our post it note sizes and shapes can be seen and priced here: thediscountprinter.com/post-itnotes/
