Souvenir


A souvenir is according to Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary a thing that you buy or keep to remind yourself of a place, an occasion or a holiday/vacation; something you bring back for other people when you have been on holiday or vacation.
According to Wikipedia, A Souvenir (French origin) is a memento, object, Keepsake and token of remembrance, a person acquires for the memories the owner associates with it. It can be any object that can be collected or purchased and transported home by the traveler as a memento/memory of a visit.
While there is no set minimum or maximum cost that one is required to adhere to when purchasing a souvenir, etiquette would suggest to keep it within a monetary amount that the receiver would not feel uncomfortable with when presented with the souvenir. The object itself may have intrinsic value, or be a symbol of an experience. Without the owners input, the symbolic meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated.

Here, we will concentrate on corporate clients and social events souvenir. Like we all know, clients are integral part of every business as their relationship keep the business/company grow. This relationship can be further enhanced by outstanding customer service, great products and underestimated technique of gifts. On an average, 52% of customer found new businesses due to bad customer services. When polled, their reason(s) for switching service provider was lack of being appreciated, hence they would do their business elsewhere. This shows the important role played by souvenir as a form of CSR (corporate social responsibility).

The question then boils down to “what gifts do we then give to our customers”? This is a simple but difficult question many businesses are faced with from time to time due to their cash constraints. So we have come up with the list of not just appealing but also cost effective items that majority of our customer will be happy about. We have group them into two (2); A. Social Event Souvenir and B. Corporate Event Souvenir.

A.  SOCIAL EVENT SOUVENIR
Social events includes anniversary events and other important celebrations e.g. Birthdays, Wedding parties, House-warming, Car-warming, Dinner/Gala nights, Recognition awards/Dinner or even sport events. Like in most African settings, Nigeria especially, when you purchase an Aso-Ebi or you just attend an occasion, souvenir are usually given as a show of appreciation. It’s usually, a great way to thank your guest for honouring your invitation and leave them with a reminder of your special day for years to come. So at events such as this, souvenirs are often given a very high priority especially in modern day African society. Examples of souvenirs usually given includes; writing pads, large basin/bowls, hand fan, glass cups, flag pens, note books, calendars, kitchen napkins, serviette packs, cooking spoons and knives, make-up porches, and soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

B. CORPORATE EVENT SOUVENIR

In conclusion, it’s important to ensure that no matter the event, your souvenir should exceptionally stand out and make a worthwhile memory to whoever it’s been served/handed to.

My Wedding Invitation

We all know that invitations are ways of asking a guest to attend a certain function but in this case a wedding. Weddings are exciting and so choosing the perfect wedding invitation can be a lot of stress for the couple because it should or will be the first taste your guests will get of your big event, so you really want it to make an impact. When your guests receive your invitation it should give them an immediate idea of what the wedding will be like. Color, theme, casual, elegant or formal. Some wedding invitations come with save the date cards which can be a form of engagement announcements as well as wedding dates especially to guests or relatives living outside your country or states.

CHOOSING THE PERFECT WEDDING INVITE DESIGN.

Choosing the perfect wedding invites is similar to choosing the perfect wedding dress because of panic attacks. First impressions last forever and wedding invitations sets the tone and theme for the entire affair. So choosing an invitation design is the most essential part of a wedding invitation because what one couple likes another might dislike. For example a couple who is out going could feel that a metallic pockets fold witha satin ribbon and rhinestone buckle perfectly sets the stage for an elaborate, flashy wedding. On the other hand, traditional brides may love classic invitations featuring maybe a white cotton card stock with black, gold or silver writing that appears simple and elegant. Also photos of the couple are also appropriate for an engagement invitation or a save the date announcement card. Some trending wedding invites design go with the scheme of your wedding for example fun bold patterns that include polka dots and stripes stand out in wedding invites design. Also Pocket style invitations are becoming very popular. In this type of invitation the envelope forms a part of the invitation itself and wraps around other elements of the invitation such as directions and wedding lists details.

SHAPES AND SIZES OF WEDDING INVITES.

The popular shape and sizes of wedding invitations are rectangular (vertical and horizontal), squared (plain and with a wrap), trifold or tall and slim (vertical and horizontal). But with modern technology and design software’s your wedding invitations could be any shape and size you could dream of. I myself once saw a wedding invite inform of a leaf. Amazing right? I saw another in form of a boarding pass. So you just think it and there is every possibility that your dreams will come through. Make your thought come to life right here in Kasprints
