Weekly Insights: Branding in a Bottle

At the recent ASI Road Show, one of the most unique items I discovered was this business card sculpture in a bottle. The company takes a quantity of your cards (say 25-50) and forms them into any of a variety of shapes, from planes, trains and automobiles to castles or palm trees. (They can even do scissor lifts or copy machines!) Then they place the sculpture in a bottle and place it on a nice wooden base. What a wonderful gift for VIPs that would find a prominent place on a shelf in their office or home!

One of their clients even used it as a high-end invitation to a VIP event, with the event details etched on the cork.

You’ll notice the repeated reference to VIPs … that’s because this is not an inexpensive gift – it can run $60-100 or more. But when you think of the lasting impression it makes, plus the opportunity for it to be shared with your VIP’s friends who may also be potential clients, it could make sense for you.
