Special Projects

We at Finishing Touch regularly work with our clients on their special projects.

Be it rebranding their corporate stationery and presentation materials, conferences or special client functions/training seminars or other projects.

Conferences and Events

When it comes to organising your conference or other special events, an important area for consideration is how to present the written material, as well as what to give the attendees and, if relevant, guest speakers. Finishing Touch can assist you in this process saving time, money and reducing stress. 

We focus not just on supplying you something from our wide range of products and innovative ideas. Rather it's all about understanding your target audience and tailoring products to suit. Ultimately you want something that both looks professional and is functional.

Whether it's conference folders, pads or bags; or branded materials, gifts or clothing, we will ensure your attendees are suitably impressed and much more likely to keep whatever they are given. After all it's important you get a return for your marketing spend.

An example of some recent conferences and events we have supplied materials for include;

  • Pacific Islands Forum, Tonga - where we supplied the presentation and branded products for the 16 attending Prime Ministers and 350 ministers, associated diplomats and media.
  • Department of Corrections - 26th Asian and Pacific Conference
  • Transpower New Zealand - AAUG Conference

Implementing a 're-brand'

Changing your brand for whatever reason - merger, name change, modernisation - is a huge task for any organisation. Experience shows that many companies completely underestimate what it entails, with the result being inconsistancies in the branded/printed materials, be it in colour, quality or size. Often excessive amounts of time and energy are expended and result in additional stress and budget blowouts. 

At Finishing Touch we specialise in assisting companies make a smooth transition from their old brand to a new one. With 18 years experience in this area, we'll help you understand and manage the transition - from corporate stationery to marketing collateral, promotional materials and corporate clothing. We will assist you in implementing your new professional image and achieving 100% consistency across all of your branded items.

Companies we have recently assisted in this area include:

  • DLA Phillips Fox - a leading New Zealand law firm that has become a member of one of the largest law firms in the world (DLA Piper Group)
  • TEAMnetworks - a successful and expanding IT company

Image Audits

An Image Audit of your corporate stationery and presentation materials is an increasingly popular service offered by Finishing Touch.

All too often in medium to large organisations, many different people are involved in the ordering of stationery, marketing collateral, presentation materials, corporate clothing and gifts etc. The result of this can be a lack of consistency in terms of brand and quality. The cost of producing the materials is also likely to be higher. In fact it is a very real possibility that through cost savings you will be able to recover the cost of the Audit.

With 18 years industry experience, Finishing Touch are happy to customise the audit to fit with your specific requirements.

A typical audit would include all products that carry your Company Logo or Brand e.g. letterhead, business cards, envelopes, company profiles, bound documents, ring binders, branded clothing, pens, bags, gifts etc.

The objective is to identify any discrepancies in the Professional Image being delivered through the different mediums, including:

  • Print quality, logo positioning, corporate colours, stock materials (paper/card) used
  • Whether different products portray the same Professional look and feel.
  • Whether out-dated products or printed items are being used or disposed of securely (problems can occur when old letterhead is not destroyed and is used for example to fraudulently order goods.)
  • That products are being utilised in correct situations e.g. 'Presentation' ring binders are used for items going to clients as opposed to 'stationery' ring binders that are intended for internal documentation, or that windowed 'accounting' envelopes should not be used to send out formal invitations.

An audit will also enable us to determine whether you are paying 'fair market rates' for your stationery and presentation materials. We will then be able to advise on cost effective options for ordering.

In addition, on completion of your audit it is most likely we'll be able to suggest alternative ideas to enhance your Professional Image and make it easier for you to use your document presentation and binding products.

Please contact us today if you believe an Image Audit would be beneficial to your company.
