Firstly, perhaps should we apologise, or maybe we should take some kind of credit?
This time last month we jokingly said that, “....it’s entirely possible that we’ve already had all the summer we’re going to get this year, and we haven’t even reached the Solstice. We are, however, a hopeful nation that can tolerate all kinds of annual adversity from rain in June to chaos on the railways and not making it out of the World Cup group stage (again), as long as some kind soul regularly provides us with a nice cup of tea…..”
Like the famous commentator's curse, we seem to have triggered a scorcher and a world cup run that united the nation. So, sorry we couldn’t do anything about the railways, but as for our part in the month of scorching sunshine and the uplifting joy of not being totally rubbish at football, you’re welcome. Hope someone made you a nice cup of tea.
Alas the lovely people of Denmark didn’t have much joy against Croatia and France (no shame there clearly), but they have come up with a handy idea that might add a little something to your enjoyment of this endless summer - pencils that turn into plants. Yes, really.
If there’s a better metaphor for how high quality corporate gifts plant the seeds of loyalty, that germinate into the flowers of profit, we’ve yet to see it.
Here’s how Sprout pencils work:
Call Georgie & Anna and order your choice of colour with your corporate logo emblazoned on each one.
Give loads to your favourite clients and staff.
Encourage them to write, draw and doodle until only the stub is left, then plant their pencils upside down in any suitable container.
Feel their delight as the chosen herbs spring to life, then add them to salads, pasta, stews, gorge themselves and feel happy.
Smile as they reward the giver of such joy by placing a huge order.
Repeat steps 1 - 5.
Regardless of whether you choose Sprout pencils in color or in grey, they are a joy to use. And when it’s time to stop writing and start planting, you’ll find it’s just as much fun to watch the seeds turn into plants. All Sprout seeds have been selected because they are easy to germinate. So you can enjoy vibrant flowers, fragrant herbs or fresh vegetables, on your window sills or in your herbaceous borders (check RHS guidlines for planting).
All aspects of the Sprout pencil are sustainable and non-toxic – from the biodegradable seed capsule to the 100% natural clay and graphite core and PEFC/FSC-certified wood.
If it’s not clear how you should plant a pencil, here’s a handy video.
Now you are ready - call us today, and watch the power of the pencil drive your business to the blooming gardens of profit.
