Award‐Winning “Party in a Box” Brings Celebration to Customers
The award‐winning “Party in a Box” direct mail piece was developed – from concept to production to
distribution – by the creative team at Brand It Marketing for their client, ABM, which was celebrating
their 20th anniversary of being in business when the COVID‐19 pandemic hit.
Due to COVID regulations, ABM was unable to celebrate their 20th anniversary in‐person with
employees, customers and friends. The Brand It Marketing team developed the unique and exciting
concept of a “Party in a Box” – filled with all things fun and relevant to help celebrate their client’s
milestone anniversary. The box was filled with everything from branded hats to confetti poppers to
peanuts straight from Georgia using ABM’s own highly sought‐after product. Paired with each item in
the box was a handwritten message from ABM’s CEO, which had significant and heartfelt meaning,
aiding in the celebrating of 20 years.
