Case Study: #36871 JAFFA® Scalloped Edge Vase

A church wanted an elegant and useful gift for couples who chose their venue for their wedding ceremonies. Because they wanted to imprint a meaningful message on the gift, they turned to a promotional products distributor for guidance. The church was impressed with the idea of a vase to hold the bride’s floral bouquet during important moments of the ceremony because it then doubled as a gift for the couple to use long into their marriage. The 1-1/2” x 2” imprint area was the perfect size for their imprint and the scalloped edges framed the message beautifully.

Couples were pleasantly surprised to receive such a beautiful a keepsake that was part of their wedding day. The church felt the design and imprint gracefully embodied their message and was happy to give these couples a meaningful, long-lasting gift.
