Logo biscuits ideas for your corporate gifting

We’ve had a busy few months here at the Bakery, I wanted to drop by and show you some of the lovely corporate biscuit projects we’ve worked on recently.

Branded biscuits can make for a fantastic corporate gift, for a product launch, as freebies for a trade show or corporate event or as a yummy treat to thank your staff and employees.

And this year, here at Nila Holden bakery, in respond to to growing demand from our clients, we’ve ramped up our capacity to be able to edible print onto icing. So we can now recreate most forms of logo & artwork in edible form, adding a real point of difference to your corporate gifting.

Here are some of the projects we’ve worked on in October:

  1. 12,000 (yes – you read that right – a whopping 12,000!) biscuits for Thomson Tui for the product launch for Marella Cruises. Read more about this project here.

2. Mobile phone themed biscuits for Intercontinental Hotels Group for a promotional campaign. Biscuits were shipped to Paris, Frankfurt and locations in the UK. This is our second year of working with IHG and we’ll soon be making a start on our third collaborative project.

3. Halloween themed biscuits for Virgin Atlantic, a Halloween treat/thank you gift for partner retailers.

4. Bridal themed biscuits for Spanish Bridal brand Rosa Clara. The biscuits were distributed to bridal salons as a freebie gift to give out to brides attending the brand’s trunk shows up and down the UK.

 

5. Branded biscuits for the Methodist Church. The Chair and Vice Chair of the National Conference visit local and regional partners across the UK on a monthly basis and like to have a small ‘leave behind’ gift. The biscuits are branded with the Methodist Church logo, but also this delightful ‘Give, Pray, Act’ artwork – sentiments that resonate with the church’s members and congregations – and presented in a pretty white gift box.

So as you can see, branded biscuits can be perfect for corporate gifting in so many different scenarios, be it for your current or prospective clients, for your employees or  corporate partners & supply chain. If you’re looking for a delicious hand baked treat complete with your logo, branding or strapline, then do drop us a line via our enquiry form – we’d love to hear from you and are happy to come up with suggestions and prices to fit with your requirements.

We’ve got a lovely range of biscuit gifts for your lovely Pops, delicious buttery iced shortbread, beautifully wrapped and delivered direct to you or your Dad.

 

For the first time Dad

For the first time Dad, the first Father’s Day is a truly special moment. After months of anticipation, pre natal appointments and scans, decorating the nursery and trying to settle on a name, your gorgeous bundle has finally arrived. And nothing could have prepared you for it. A good night’s sleep and any semblance of a normal life have gone out of the window. And you wouldn’t have it any other way. These biscuits are the perfect accompaniment to those late night feeds and a yummy sugary burst of energy just when you need it.

 

For the Boring Jumper Dad

For the Dad who loves his boring M&S jumpers how about these gorgeous jumper biscuits? Your Dad loves his comfy beige jumpers.  Over the years you’ve tried to get him to deviate from the plain jumper over shirt combo your Dad wears everywhere. But he always comes back to his much loved knitted numbers from his all time favourite department store. Because they always his size and he can rely on them.

 

For the Tea Lover Dad

Your Dad loves nothing more than a nice strong brew of the nation’s favourite drink and a nice biccie. He takes his tea strong, with a drop of milk. Always the hot water first, then the milk. And it has be in his favourite mug. Which, if truth be told, he doesn’t wash that often. Much to Mum’s irritation. She’s always sneaking into the dishwasher when Dad’s not looking. Well, how about these yummy iced biscuits – the perfect accompaniment to a cuppa. Your Dad will love them.

 

The Stepdad

Well this is awkward. He’s not your real Dad, but you want to get your Stepdad a little gift to say thank you for being there for you and your Mum. You don’t want to go all schmatlzy and over the top (after all he’s got his own kids who’ll do that), but you need something to show how much you appreciate him, for taking such good care of your Mum. And for cooking a mean roast. These are the perfect biscuits.

 

For the self sacrificing Dad

 

nila holden love you dad mini biscuits

 

Your Dad loves his family more than anything in the world and would do just about anything for you, your Mum and your siblings. He does all the taxi runs, he gives up his weekends to mow your lawn, put up your flatpack furniture or check the oil in your car. When you’re running low on funds, he always has a spare £20 to give you. You say you’ll give it back when it have, but he never really expects you will. This box set of 12 mini beautiful biscuits are the perfect treat for the man who knows little about indulgence and everything about duty to his family.

Biscuits for SEAT Cars Track Back Campaign

SEAT branded biscuits nila holden

We loved making biscuits for SEAT cars  recently.  The Sales Development Team at SEAT contacted us to see if we could help with biscuits for an upcoming campaign they were launching with their dealerships.

The team were launching Track Back a campaign focusing on ensuring efficient Lead Generation and Management and improving response times within their dealerships, and were looking to for us to make logo biscuits and to ship them to 120 of their dealerships across the country.

It was clear from the outset that some logo / branded biscuits featuring the SEAT & Track Back logo’s would work well. But the sales development team wanted to come up with something a bit more exciting and memorable to tie in with the key messages from the campaign.

We did some work to look at what kinds of phrases and text from the campaign would fit well on the biscuit size & shape we had in mind. In the end we decided on a set of 10 biscuits in a gift box for each dealership, a mix of square and round biscuits with logos and some with words stamped in them. All presented in a lovely gift box.

And then some with the Track Back branding for staff back at the SEAT HQ.  The SEAT / Track Back branding was a dream to work with and the final biscuits looked great – I hope you’ll agree!

After baking and decorating the biscuits, we had a busy morning in the bakery packing up all 120 parcels, each with a gift box and including a letter from the SEAT team explaining to the dealerships that the Track Back Campaign had launched and what was enclosed in the packet.

We had some great feedback from the team at SEAT  “Hello Nila, I just want to say a massive thank you for the beautiful biscuits. We are over the moon with them and they have gone down a treat…!”

We have since signed up to be a preferred supplier to the Seat / Volkswagen group and look forward to making many more biscuits for projects and campaigns across the Audi, Skoda, VW & Seat brands.

Are you working on a new campaign and looking for a little something to make your campaign stand out or be more memorable? Logo biscuits could be the perfect thing! Why not send us an enquiry today to get more info & prices or head over to the corporate biscuit  pages of our website for more info and examples of past projects.

We’d love to hear from you!

Bus biscuits for Here East’s new shuttle bus.

here east bus biscuits nila holden2

We were really excited to make some logo biscuits for Here East recently.  Here East covers 1.2 million square feet in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and brings together business, tech, media, education and data in the pursuit of innovation, surrounded by parks, canals, housing & leisure facilities.

Here East is home to established names and nimble startups alike. “Radicals, reformers, visionaries, industry heroes and like-minded locals – they’re all part of our East London heritage and its geography of innovation…”

We were commissioned by creative design agency We Design who in turn is working directly with Here East, to make some biscuits to launch a new shuttle bus route.

There was some stunning branded artwork for the campaign which gave us a lot of beautiful content to work with. 

Screen Shot 2017-05-06 at 22.58.47

In discussions with Naomi, project manager from We Design, we discussed the xxxxx and came up with a simple but sleek design for the biscuit artwork. We felt a rectangular shaped biscuit would work well and would be lightly reminiscent of a bus shape.

We made up biscuits with 3 slightly different designs – always something to consider when thinking about branded biscuits. You’ll be keen to get maximum exposure & sharing on social media, and having posts, retweets etc with a few different images being shared is always really good and definitely something to aim for.

Here are the biscuits all wrapped up and ready to dispatch. Don’t they look great?

We’ve had some really great feedback from Naomi at We Design:

“Hi Nila, I just wanted to say a really big thank you for the bus biscuits, the client was really happy with them and has messaged me this morning to let me know they are going down a storm on the Here East site…!  Thanks again, it has been great working with you on this project!

We are super, super excited to have gained a listing with Knightsbridge department store Harrods.

After a few years of submitting designs, this year we were finally shortlisted and following a few months of designing, redesigning and tweaking to meet Harrods strict design guidelines, we have launched six luxury Christmas biscuits which are now gracing the shelves of the Harrods Food Hall.

All six biscuits have been designed to match Harrods 2016 Instore Christmas branding. We have Christmas Robin, Harrods Bear, Santa & Gingerbread Man biscuits as below:

And the absolute pièce de résistance – the Harrods Green Man biscuit, designed to match the iconic Harrods Doorman Uniform.

We’ve also got a bit of a soft spot for the rather cute Harrods Bear Biscuit, designed to match the Harrods 2016 Christmas Bear Teddy:
