The trophy room
  • The results are in for the 20th Annual Healthcare Advertising competition, and First Marketing walked away with two Silver and two Merit awards. Accolades were given for two calendars, a newsletter and a direct mail piece for our health clients.

  • A custom calendar and an out-of-home campaign (consisting of billboards and bus wraps) won silver ADDY awards for the Florida/Caribbean region. These works moved on to the regionals after winning gold and silver awards in the local round of competition held in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. The American Advertising Federation is holding their national ADDY competition in Los Angeles, where our work will be in the running again.
A custom calendar for 79¢!?
That's right. With First Marketing's gang-print initiative, you get to make an impression all year long for mere pocket change! Here's how it works:

We've established some basic specs, like page size and paper stock, that allow us to print all our clients' calendars at one time. Although the basic format is preset, everything else — including design, art and content — is completely custom for each individual client.

For more information, contact your Business Development Manager or e-mail us. But hurry! In order to participate, you must sign on before August 31.
