Valentine Thank You Gift
Top Five Ways to Show Customers How Much They Mean to You
Bet your customers won’t expect this! While the holiday season is typically the time when most businesses show customers their appreciation, why not let yours know how much they mean to you during other times of the year as well? Stand out from the rest this Valentine’s Day—let your customers know how much you appreciate them with these lovable ideas.

1. Give them a sweet expression of thanks

The chocolatey goodness of a candy bar is hard to resist. This delectable token of your appreciation can be personalized using Avery White Shipping Labels and the free Avery Design & Print Online program.  Add your company name, logo, and a message to your customers onto your label template and print. And because Avery Shipping Labels feature TrueBlock® Technology, you can wrap the labels around the existing candy bar wrappers without anything showing through.

TIP: Turn the label into a coupon—just print your offer, whether it’s a discount or free item, onto the label. Customers can detach the wrapper to redeem in your store.

2. Say “thank you” with a sales tag

Taking time out to give your customers a personal “thank you” can really make an impact, and these little notes can be created quickly with Avery Note Cards (includes envelopes!). To make your message extra special, pop in a little incentive—offer a discount to an item or service from your store, such as a 15% off, and print on an Avery Printable Tag. Customers can bring in the tag and redeem as a coupon.

TIP: You might also consider including a reward card with your note—a little something to keep the business relationship going!

3. Show your appreciation with samples

Who can say “no” to free samples? Whether you’re introducing a new flavor from your bakery or a trial jar from a skincare line, a free sample gives your customers the opportunity to try something new. Add your brand to the packaging using Avery Branding Labels to make sure they remember your business.

TIP: Want to connect customers to your website or online demo? Create a QR barcode using Avery Square Labels—designed for optimal barcode reading!
