Edition: December / 2018AP&P Celebrates Thanksgiving
AP&P Celebrates Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is a time when family and friends gather to celebrate all that we are thankful for (and of course eat a bit too much turkey!).
Our AP&P family gathered on Friday, November 16th to fill our stomachs with great food, and our hearts with joy and laughter. We enjoyed a delicious smoked turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and all the fixings!
2018 has been a great year for AP&P, and what better time than now to thank all of the people that have contributed to our success?! We are so fortunate to have such a great team of people here at AP&P who love what they do! And we want to thank each and every one of our customers and suppliers for being an integral part of our success! It's because of all of you that we can continue to grow as a company, and do what we love!
From our family to yours, we hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Choosing The Perfect Color For The Season
Tips & How-To's
The color of a product and it's packaging is one of the first things that buyers notice and consider when purchasing, and can greatly impact their buying decision. What's more interesting is that studies have shown that most consumers make this choice subconsciously and within mere seconds. That's not a lot of time to catch the attention of your prospective customers! That's why selecting the perfect seasonal colors for your products and packaging is essential.
Almost everyone can identify certain colors that are associated with certain seasons or holidays. For example, the red and green shades of Christmas, the colorful pastels associated with Spring and Easter, or the pinks and reds that pop up in stores everywhere around Valentine's day. These traditional color choices will always be popular, but if you want to stand out, consider branching out a bit.
When it comes to choosing your seasonal packaging, it's smart to start with the well-known colors, but then customize them to match your company's brand or to make your own statement. For your end of year holiday packaging needs, while traditional Christmas colors are always safe, consider choosing a signature tone to differentiate your products from the rest. Incorporating colors beyond the typical reds and greens are a great way to make sure that your holiday packages will receive the attention they deserve.
