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.

Logo biscuits to launch a new cruise ship

We’ve had a really busy October here at the bakery with lots of orders for corporate biscuits. We’ve baked, iced, wrapped & shipped just under 17,000 biscuits, our busiest month ever!

Our biggest order this month and our biggest order to date was for some branded biscuits for holiday company Thomson Tui, who are a fellow Luton based business.  The team at Tui were looking for a fun, yummy branded gift to give out to all employees as part of their celebrations around the launch of the new Marella Cruise liner.

Tui ordered just over 12,000 biscuits, each to be iced with the new Marella Cruise branding. The order was fairly last minute and we had around 10 working days from order sign off to get all the biscuits baked and packed and dispatched to Thompson Tui locations around the UK.

The team at Tui went for a simple but classic design for their logo biscuits, with a simple white icing, with the lovely new Marella Cruises branding.  Due to the commercially sensitive nature of the PR / product launch, we agreed to sign an NDA, which is common practice for projects of this nature. So naturally, all the work was carried out with the utmost secrecy and discretion.

We had lots of fun visiting the various Tui locations in / around Luton Airport. And after many long days and late nights baking and packing biscuits, I have to confess to feeling the need for some holiday sunshine and trip abroad somewhere sometime soon!  Visiting the Tui offices really put me in the holiday mood.

We had some fantastic feedback from the Tui team “Just wanted to say thank you for the delivery today, the biscuits looked great and we’ve heard some really positive comments…”

And lots of love for the biscuits on social media too!

This is the single biggest order we’ve done to date and at times slightly overwhelming, but a fantastic opportunity to work with a fellow Luton business and also to have an opportunity to really scale up and see how the bakery could cope with such a large order to be turned around in such as short timescale. I am super proud of how the team pulled together to make this happen.

And in the busy run up to Christmas I’m looking forward to getting stuck into lots more corporate orders so if you’re on the hunt for corporate christmas gifts, or logo biscuits for your Christmas events, gifting etc then do drop us a line via our branded biscuits enquiry form. We’d love to hear from you!

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!

Bus biscuits for Here East’s new shuttle bus.

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!

Word on Water floating bookshop, London

book_cover_biscuits

I had a lovely afternoon out walking along the Regents canal around Kings Cross & Camden a few weekends ago. It was a balmy Spring day, a gentle breeze and the sun shining. London is never more beautiful then when she’s bathed in glorious sunshine.

We took the train into St Pancras and from there headed to Granary Square which is behind Kings Cross station.

From there we took a right turn down to the canal and wondered along to Word on Water, a gorgeous little floating book shop housed on a narrowboat.

Step on board, and you duck down into a gorgeous & cosy looking reading nook crammed full of all sorts of books, fiction/non fiction, adult books and a cute little children’s book corner.

There are a lots of cosy chairs and sofas that you just kind of sink into, great if you want to have a little sit and browse alongside the wood burner.

It was a bright sunny day when we visited and there was something quite ethereal and magical to be down the steps in such a snug little room, with families of ducks and geese swimming by, the sunlight dancing on the water and throwing sparkly beams back into the room.

Loved this floating bijou emporium of the printed word, a real book lovers dream! Can’t wait to go back soon.

Word on Water run a number of events through the year, with live music, readings from published authors and lots more. Check out the Word on Water facebook page for news on upcoming events.

On returning to the bakery I was inspired to design some literary themed book biscuits,  including of course some Jane Austin & Charlotte Bronte. And Of Mice & Men – as one of the kids has been studying this at school so we’ve been reading a couple of pages here and there. How great are these and wouldn’t they make a great edible gift for a book lover? Or perfect gifts or goodie bag treats for a book launch?

As it happens, we’re currently working on a book themed Christmas gift project for a large national book retailer which I’m really excited about. Watch this space for more info in the coming weeks….

Being someone who owns an artisan bakery specialising in iced biscuits, one of my absolute favourite past times is visiting quirky little tea rooms & coffee shops. I’m surrounded by sugar, baking & biscuits everyday at work so you’d think that the last thing I’d want to do at the weekends is step back into it, but I guess it’s a life’s work and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of it! From time to time I blog about my experiences, if you liked this post, you might be interested to read these:

Logo biscuits for Flymo & McCulloch UK

nila_holden_branded_biscuits_flymo

Just dropping by to show you some corporate biscuits we made recently for our client the integrated PR, Digital and creative communications agency OPR for their clients Flymo and McCulloch, brands owned by Swedish company Husqvarna

OPR were looking to source some biscuits as freebie giveaways for an industry event. Both McCulloch and Flymo logos and brands have great market awareness and the Flymo logo in particular is very easily recognisable. 

Seeing the Flymo branding took me right back to my teenage years and endless hours mowing my parents lawns (front and back!) with our hover mower. I’d always load up some tunes onto my cassette walkman – Aha and Duran Duran were real favourites for mowing duties and walk up and down the garden with the Flymo hovering and gliding across the grass. 

In discussions with OPR, we decided that the most cost effective design would be go with a neutral icing topped with the printed logos. When you have such iconic, instantly recognisable logos this approach is often the most impactful and gives a clean unfussy finish to the biscuits.

The biscuits went down a treat and we had some great feedback from our client OPR:

“The biscuits did indeed arrive in good time, all the biscuits were in good order and they tasted delicious! The event was a great success and the client was really pleased. We’ll be sure to keep in touch and bear you in mind should we need any biscuits again….”

St Mary’s made up some beautiful artwork to tie in with the branding of the launch event documents.

We made just over 600 biscuits for this commission. Vanilla biscuits, with white icing and then the contrasting edible printed toppers.

The biscuits looked great and we loved the dark navy branding which had great impact and looked great contrasted with the white icing.

Put a smile on their face with some branded cookies!

Our lovely client Salecyle, a behavioural marketing solutions company that helps it’s clients turn visitors into customers contacted us recently with the following request:

“We have one of our clients DFDS visiting the office, and I’d like to put a smile on their face with some branded / fun cookies. What can you come up with?”

Some branded cookies featuring logos of both companies was a no brainer.

 

 

We wanted to come up with something a bit more creative and memorable.  With DFDS being a shipping and logistics company, we came up with the idea of making some branded boat biscuits.

Corporate biscuits for Notonthehighstreet.com Corporate Strategy Day 2016

noths-corporate-biscuits-nila-holden

We loved making these gorgeous iced biscuits for Notonthehighstreet.com (NOTHS) recently for their annual staff strategy day.

NOTHS has set itself the very ambitious target to be the ‘number one curated marketplace’ and as part of the strategy day, the staff had presentations, team workshops and even African drum workshops!

We are a NOTHS partner and have a shopfront on the marketplace  through which we sell biscuit gifts.  So, needing some sweet treats to mark the occasion, naturally the NOTHS team approached us to see if we could make some biscuits to tie in with their core staff values of:

-Brave
-Love what we do
-Always moving forward
-Creative
-Team Noths

The NOTHS team shared the event branding with us and we came up with some lovely bright iced biscuits to match, each stamped with one of the values.

notonthehighstreet-corporate-biscuits-nila-holden4

We baked and decorated 100’s of biscuits for this commission. They look stunning and so colourful, all laid out together.

We’ve seen some great sharing of biscuit pics on instagram from the NOTHS team!
