NHS Blood and Transplant wanted a promotional gift to give to donors to show appreciation for giving blood. After much consultation the NHS BT decided they wanted to produce a ‘Billy Blood Drop’ soft beanie toy.
As a contracted supplier for promotional products to the NHS BT, Get Yourself Noticed was excited to work with the procurement team on this project and were tasked with designing, sourcing and manufacturing a large number of the bespoke soft toys.
We produced a number of designs for the bespoke soft toy and when the artwork was approved by the procurement team we arrange a number of pre-production samples to be produced before final production to ensure the client was happy with the product quality. We produced a number of samples with different fabric types, all PantoneTM matched to the exact Pantone red specified by the Brand Guidelines, and with a range of embroidery options, again complying with the specifics of the NHS BT brand guidelines. In addition to this we also had to ensure the branded soft toys complied with stringent EN71 toy safety guidelines and specific labelling requirements.
Once the procurement team signed off their preferred pre-production sample option, the main production run was then produced and the final consignment delivered to the customer to multiple addresses throughout the UK. The team were delighted with the bespoke branded soft toy that exceeded their expectations .
