Advent calendars belong to the evergreens of the promotional products industry, however the entries to the Promotional Gift Award demonstrate again and again that these classics definitely offer potential for creative further developments. The offset printing shop Schwarzach picked up on this theme and developed the Advent Calendar 2020. The entire mechanism of the calendar, which impresses with its elegant design and originality, is made of cardboard and corrugated cardboard: When the handle is pulled a chocolate ball rolls out of the opening. Furthermore, a rotary knob above the handle displays the date.
The manufacturer has fitted the detachable snow-covered peak of the tree with a magnetic mount and customised it with a discrete, glittery Iriodin coating. A filigree hot-foil motif, which is additionally embossed on the sides together with the structured handle provides an exciting visual and haptic effect against the dark green background of the tree. The item is customised and imprinted in a climate-neutral manner. An employment initiative for the long-term unemployed in the Vorarlberg region is responsible for the picking and packing.
The high-quality appearance and haptic attributes paired with the original functionality won over the jury and earned the Advent Calendar 2020 a Promotional Gift Award in the category Premium Products.
