Great for promotions where you allow your customers to donate items at your locations. The box pictured was used to solicit used baseball gloves. The promotion involved the local minor league ball club, along with the Y, and a local bank. The cost of promotions like this are minimal, and the promotion was covered in the local paper and on radio stations. Radio stations would be another great tie-in! Other ideas include asking for knit beanies for people undergoing chemotherapy. (When this was done in our town, people were hand knitting beanies just for the cause! It also received wide coverage.)
Decorating the boxes is easy! Just output your graphics on to self adhesive paper, and stick it on the box. They look great!
