I love hosting events. When I was younger, I hosted events for fun and for well..money. Teehee. I love planning.. Doing details and stuff. It is a venue for me to exercise my oc-ness, if you know what I mean. 😀
Last December, my family hosted our annual family reunion. Of course we had to do the brainstorming before the event. It was fun, a little stressful, but I’d like to believe it was a success.
Part of the planning was thinking of a souvenir. We have to have something to remember the event. It was a family reunion, after all.
I came accross Üprint by Reggie while looking for ref magnets on instagram for a friend. Her friend was getting married and they were specifically looking for ref magnets as giveaways. I inquired and got the answers that I needed, and reported back to my friend.
Then my niece celebrated her birthday last year. Being the bibo kid that I am, I told my sister-in-law about the shop and she liked the idea of giving ref magnets as giveaways. She ordered from the shop and I was told they had a smooth transaction.
Then came the reunion. It was my turn to think of a giveaway. Because my sis in law didn’t have a problem ordering from them, I suggested ref magnets to my sibs and they went for it. 🙂
Ref magnets start at 15php, individually packed with resealable plastic and paper backing. If with pillow box and or accents, cost would be 25-30php.
The only problem that we had was the holiday rush. I ordered the magnets last December (our reunion was Dec 30th) so it was a really busy month. I kind of gave them short notice.. Like I only sent them the design days before the reunion. Also, we mostly communicated through facebook messenger and I think it would have been better if we talked through sms instead because sometimes she wasn’t online when I was, and vice versa. Aside from that, finding a courier was a problem, too. Using LBC or other trusted couriers will not guarantee getting the products on time. Thankfully, there is an express service such as Grab Express. We went with it, as suggested by Üprint. We paid 219php for the delivery fee.
I can recommend getting them as a supplier because they were easy to talk to. They didn’t even put “rush fee” and they happily accepted my order even if I gave them such short notice.
Aside from ref magnets, Üprint by Reggie also make customized mugs, business cards, notepads – basically anything with prints.
You may view their works in instagram and facebook.
