3 Promotional Product Ideas To Plant Seeds And Save The Bees
What We Like

 

Why are the bees dying?

In 2006, Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) wiped out one-third of all honeybees in the U.S.

Colony Collapes occurs when honey bees collect and bring home toxic pollen from pesticide-covered crops.

Of the 250 bumblebee species found throughout the world, about one-quarter are thought to be facing the risk of extinction.

How To Turn A Thanksgiving Self Promo Into Holiday Sales
Plantable Seed Paper Promotions
Tis the season to give thanks and celebrate the holiday season!

Sending Thanksgiving thank you cards to clients is a great marketing tool that also makes you feel good! The act of sending a personalized card shows your clients that you care about them and appreciate their continued business. It also creates an opportunity to start a conversation about holiday orders.

With over 1.5 billion greeting cards sold during the holiday season every year it is clear that holiday cards are a big money maker. However, it is also clear that standard holiday cards create tons of waste. Glossy coatings and foil render greeting cards unrecycleable, meaning that those types of cards will go straight to the landfill. So why not choose eco-friendly paper instead? Stand out with Bloomin 100% recycled, 100% plantable seed paper.

Our new plantable seed coins are all the rage this year. They have won 3 out of the 5 Product Showcases at the 2014 ASI shows.They’re eco-friendly, customizable, and extremely unique promotions. 

They are also so realistic that bystanders will actually pick them up right off the ground in excitement! Made from double-thick seed paper, they are the same size and shape as real U.S. minted coins. Letter-pressing both sides gives the coins a textured and weighty feel to them. Each coin will grow something different for your garden. If you want wildflowers this year, then only plant the pennies. To add to your veggie garden, plant the dimes for carrots & turnips or plant the quarters for a mix of salad greens. Create your own herb garden from the nickels which include a mix of basil, thyme,parsley, chive and oregano seeds.Check them out HERE

In the latest edition of Counselor Magazine our very own Don Martin (Bloomin President) was featured on their Hot List. Check it out:

Don Martin
Bloomin’ Promotions
Armed with a marketing MBA from the University of Colorado, Don Martin always seemed destined for success. As president of Bloomin’ Promotions (asi/40646), he’s developed a unique line of seed paper-based products that includes coasters, calendars and wristbands. Bloomin’s signature items are made from 100% post-industrial, recycled paper and dyed with all-natural, vegetable-based pigments. But Martin doesn’t just sell sustainability – he relies on it. His company uses a 30kW solar power system to run its Boulder-based production facility. Martin also serves on the board of directors for nonprofit Community Link and provides job opportunities at Bloomin’ for individuals with disabilities.

Bloomin was chosen as the official manufacturer of seed paper for Universal's latest blockbuster, Dr. Seuss' The Lorax! We helped produce 3 million bookmarks adorned with seed paper in the shape of a Truffula Tree. In order to stay consistent with the movie's message, we made a special, custom seed mix for this project, and used white spruce seeds in place of our typical wildflower mix.

The Lorax is a Dr. Seuss children's classic with an environmental theme. The Lorax "speaks for the trees because the trees have no tongues." Before long, the greedy Onceler ventures into the land filled with Truffula Trees and begins chopping them all down in order to make and sell "Thneeds", something that EVERYONE needs. The story goes on to share messages of industrialism, pollution, and greed, all of which are important to note in this day and age, especially with our children.

We were so excited to be a part of this project, and we even more excited to see our bookmark on an IHOP commercial during prime time television.


The bookmark also made it into the re-release of the original production of The Lorax DVD! This animated version was produced specifically for television back in 1972. Make sure to get your copy of this classic, exclusively at Target!

Just remember that we all can make a difference when it comes to global warming and protecting our planet. To quote The Lorax, "Unless someone like you...cares a whole awful lot...nothing is going to get better...It's not."

Hope you enjoy the movie, and happy planting!

Here is another rough iphone video from Tom at Bloomin' Flower Cards. Our seed paper garden has been in full bloom for six to eight weeks I think. It started out a little slow. I was concerned that we had waited a little too long. Why is it the folks in "the" business often don't get done themselves what we do for others all year long.

 

For example, I spent a few hours in the evenings before Christmas, cramming in Adobe Creative suite on my own family Christmas cards, and I never did print, die cut and send them out. I put so much work into them I finally had to at least post them on my facebook page, for what ever that was worth. My sub point is that I did my best to help hundreds of others get their holiday cards out and failed getting my own out.

Anyway, my main point is that we shipped hundreds of thousands of seed paper products out to our customers before the end of May so everyone could take advantage of the beginning of the planting season and I neglected to get our own garden in early. Whew, that was a mouthful. Well as it turned out we didn't miss a thing. We have a great late summer garden that I think will be looking good for another month or more.

Don't worry we have an amazing quality control team that checks every piece to catch this type of nuances.  But this postcard does more than just make us laugh, it's being used to promote VH1's Do Something Awards.

Bloomin Featured in Promotional Products Business (PPB)

Posted by on in Press

PPB (Promotional Products Business Magazine) recently asked recipients of this year’s PPAI Supplier Star Award to comment on the elements they think are critical to ensuring long-lasting customer satisfaction. Check out the 24 Best Ideas For Memorable Customer Service. Don’s are listed as the top 3! We appreciate the praises we receive for our customer service commitment from our customers most of all. Check out the full article in the most recent issue of PPB

24 Best Ideas For Memorable Customer Service By Tina Berres Filipski

PPB asked recipients of this year’s PPAI Supplier Star Award to comment on the elements they think are critical to ensuring long-lasting customer satisfaction. What are your three best pieces of advice to keep customers happy?

Don R. Martin, President Bloomin’ Promotions (UPIC: Bloom108)

1. Offer solutions, not just products. We encourage our distributors to share information about each project early, so that we can make recommendations to ensure it is as successful and cost-effective as possible.

2. Manage the customer’s expectations. Because our products are handmade, there are slight variations in the thickness of the seed paper, as well as subtle color variations. We do our best to minimize these variations, but we encourage distributors to help manage the customer’s expectations.

3. Sample the product. We encourage distributors to plant our products and see for themselves that our paper really does grow. If they have seen how well it grows firsthand, and have that peace of mind when a customer asks, it is a powerful selling tool.

A Word from the Bloomin' President

Posted by on in Our Community

 

Ask me what makes our company great, and I'll tell you its the people who work there. Our current team of All Star Rock Stars is constantly striving to build a better company for our valued customers every day. Be it back in the die cutting department, paper making, printing, accounting, assembly, shipping, customer service, sales, or the art department, we all are working hard to make Bloomin' the best it can be. It's the people that work there that make it so fun and exciting to come to work everyday. It is inspiring to see the diverse backgrounds and interests that make up our complex, yet ever so simple company fabric.

 

I am a big fan of Malcolm Gladwell books. Having read the Tipping point and Blink, I was excited to find his latest release "Outliers" traveling back from one of my recent promotional products trade shows. He delivers many insightful accounts, including one of the Chinese rice farmers of the 15th century. He describes their work as particularly meaningful and entrepreneurial. "They weren't just planting in the spring and harvesting in the fall, they autonomously ran their own small businesses - renting the best land they could find, juggling the family workforce, hedging uncertainty with hearty seed selection, building and maintaining sophisticated irrigation systems, and coordinating the complicated process of harvesting the first crop while simultaneously preparing the next". Sounds a lot like the challenges and rewards we face at Bloomin!

In Outliers, Gladwell talks about how today's very best hockey and soccer players are people who are not only talented and work hard but they also benefit from weird and peculiar ways in which their world is organized. I am certain the Outlier phenomenon occurs within many of our own key people, and has been instrumental in our ability to pen our own "Story of Success". A good read, as are all of his books.

Winter in October: a cold weekend in Boulder

Posted by on in Our Community

 

Here is Tia and Naomi, my two 7 year olds enjoying a wintry Sunday morning. We broke a weather record the experts say, I believe it, brrrrrrrrrrrr. Is it because of climate change? I suspect so but I sure hope not. Anyway, I hope these two beauties will brighten your day, they brighten my day everyday. Our kids are the best thing that ever happened to us. It is so much fun looking at the world through their bright eyes. If you have kids, you know what I am talking about huh, if not, I'm sure you have plenty of other great things you enjoy. I hope it gets back up in the 70's soon, I'm not done with fall yet.

Steve Porsborg, our seed paper making facility guru (i.e. manager) is pictured here holding a sheet of plantable seed paper utilizing our newest process for manufacturing flat 4-color process printable paper. We can now print 4-color on most custom seed mixes (small seeds only of course)! Making nice, flat seed paper sheets with high germination rates is what we continue to do best. Still made from 100% recycled paper and flat enough to go through our inkjet printers, our seed papers continues to be the greenest and growin'est.

You asked for it, and now we've got it! Small batch 4-color print runs on custom seed papers (including parsley, chives, basil, grass, carrots, lettuce, and more) are now available! Of course we can always letterpress print on any of our papers with 1 or 2 colors for that old world debossed look.

We continue to find new and better ways of doing things! Innovation is alive and well at Bloomin' and remains the secret to our 16 years of growth.

We made this paper for a promotion this spring. It was a 2" x 3.5" orange seed paper card embedded with carrot seeds and letterpressed with black soy ink. You gotta love the old-world debossed look that the letterpress stamps in the the seed paper. A couple of months later we see the photo below come through. We love seeing our paper grow even more than we like to look at it and touch it.

Here is a cool project we recently did for Clorox. We produced 120,000 pieces in less than 3 weeks time along with everything else we do here. It's a twist in our regular PP product (4 x 5 two-part postcard). The card was printed on Mohawk 100% recycled cardstock made with wind-energy. The green wildflower seed paper was handmade here in Boulder, Colorado. Like always, Bloomin's paper has the highest germination rate in the industry (this paper will grow like mad!). Guaranteed!

Check out a recent seed paper coaster for General Mills which was inserted into each box of Cheerios. We're very excited to share this amazing product with you. The order was over 100,000+ seed paper coasters to be inserted into each and every box of Cheerios. 

It was a successful eco-product for the popular Cheerios brand cereal—and for Bloomin' Promotions, as well. Here are a few pictures of the box itself and  how it looked on the supermarket shelves.
