The Star Card program won 1st place by the International Amusement Park Association as their best employee incentive contest! Scratch Off Works designed and printed the Star Card for Whiting's Foods. This company incentive can be customized for your company, using your logo, artwork and prize breakdown!
What makes this employee incentive program so special? It's the unique combination of making the cards an interactive scratch off and giving the card to the employees whenever they do something good. It's that instant recognition + scratch offs that makes this program so successful! The employees are handed a scratch off card when their manager witnesses them doing something good. It can be anything that earns them a card; for example, spending extra time with a client, having perfect attendance for a week, making or exceeding quota, having a positive attitude, being safe in the workplace, etc. Whatever issues you have identified that you want to improve with your workforce, that's what you focus this program on. Because your employees are immediately rewarded and recognized for their behavior, it acts as a positive reinforcement. Winning prizes can range from cash to a paid half day off to logo items from your company. The non-winning cards can be collected and entered into a drawing. This is an employee incentive program that really works!
HOW MANY DIFFERENT PRIZES CAN I HAVE?
We are completely flexible over here, so you can have have as many prize versions as you want. At no additional cost. While most promotions average 3-10 different prize variations, if you want, every promotion can have a completely different prize or unique code! All we need is a text list or a spreadsheet showing the breakdown of your prizes (what they are and how many of each prize you would like us to print). If you need help, just call us. That's what we're here for!
HOW MANY SCRATCH AREAS CAN MY CARDS HAVE?
With our scratch off printing, you can have as many scratch areas as you want, in any shape and size that you want, and anywhere on the card that you want! We don't have a template, so all of our employee incentive programs are custom to fit your design and your needs. We don't charge more for multiple scratch areas, so whether you want multiple scratch areas like Marriot Tysons Corner, 3 boxes where you scratch off and try to match 3 to win, or if you want 50 donations spots on a fundraising card - whatever it is you want, we can produce it for you!
WHAT KIND OF PRIZES CAN I GIVE AWAY WITH MY HOSPITALITY SCRATCH OFF PROMOTION?
You can give away any type of prize that you want. We will print text, variable data, barcodes, QR codes, symbols, pictures...the sky is the limit!
CAN I HAVE UNIQUE CODES AND VARIABLE DATA PRINTED BENEATH THE SCRATCH AREA?
Yes, absolutely! We can use your variable data and unique codes or we can generate it for you. We can print unique codes on every card, serial numbers, control numbers, user names, login passwords, alphanumeric random codes - whatever you need.
HOW IS THE VARIABLE DATA GENERATED? AND IS IT SECURE DURING PRINTING?
We can use your PIN numbers and variable data or we can generate the PIN numbers for you. We do not charge for generating data. We will provide you with an Excel spreadsheet with the unique codes, user names, serial numbers, prizes, etc. During production, your variable data is only seen by our head programmer and our production manager. We take the security and confidentiality of your hospitality scratch off promotion as seriously as you do.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR SCRATCH OFF LATEX INK AND LABELS?
Some companies use stickers or “security labels” to cover the PIN numbers and variable data. These are labels that are not completely secure. They have the risk of peeling off if the weather is too hot or cold, and they are susceptible to tampering. The material we use is a latex ink which is 100% opaque so it completely conceals the codes printed beneath it. The material adheres directly to the paper so it will not peel off. It scratches off clean, with no residue on your fingers. Most importantly, our ink reduces the risk of tampering or accidentally scratching off the numbers printed beneath it.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE THE SHAPE AND SIZE OF THE SCRATCH AREA?
Yes, you can! Since we don't use labels for the scratch off area, you aren't limited to a specific size or shape. The sky is the limit! We will print any size and any shape scratch off area that you want. There is no additional charge to have a shape. We can even cover the entire card so the whole card scratches off!
This is a great example of custom scratch off printing. This is a promotion we did for Disney - the entire Aladdin's lamp was printed in a gold latex scratch off ink, with a black overprint on top to give the lamp dimension and some design.
IF I WANT CONTROL NUMBERS ON MY CARDS, WHERE WILL THEY BE PRINTED?
If you would like control numbers printed on your cards, they can be located on either side of the card and anywhere you want on that side.
WILL MY WINNERS BE SORTED FROM MY NON-WINNERS?
It's up to you! We can keep everything separated by prize version or we can mix everything together for you. We can also collate your scratch off cards into smaller batches and drop ship them to multiple locations. Just let us know what you need and we'll package your cards however you like.
DO YOU CHARGE A SET-UP FEE?
One reason our clients like working with us, and why they return over and over, is we don't have any hidden fees. So the price we quote you, is always our best price. This means we never have any set-up fees. It also means we have no rush charges, no cost for design work or proofs, no additional cost for multiple prizes or art versions. What you see is what you get with us and we always give you our very best in everything we do!
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME? DO YOU HAVE A RUSH CHARGE?
Our turnaround time for quantities under 100,000 cards is 1 week or less. If you're looking to order more than 100,000 cards, we can usually start shipping partials within 3 days of beginning production. There are no hidden charges in our quotes. This includes no rush charges. If you want to start a hospitality scratch off promotion at your bar restaurant or hotel, we can have cards designed, printed and delivered to you within 1 week!
CAN YOU DESIGN THE CARDS FOR ME?
We have some of the most talented graphic designers in the industry. We would love to design your scratch off cards for you! We have an award winning team that is able to put together vibrant promotions that are not only eye-catching but that also reflect your company's personality, vision, and will produce results. We don't charge for our design services. We can usually have digital proofs emailed to you within 1-2 days.
CAN I SEE A PHYSICAL PROOF BEFORE MY ORDER IS PRINTED?
Absolutely. We always provide digital proofs before we go on press, this way you can make sure everything looks exactly the way you want it to. We don't charge for digital proofs. If you need something changed before we go on press, we don't charge for this. We can also send you a physical press proof by UPS Next Day Air upon request. We want you to feel comfortable that your project will be produced the way you want.
HOTEL SCRATCH OFF PROMOTIONS
Hotel hospitality scratch off promotions can work 1 of 2 ways: either as scratch off incentive programs like Metropolitan at the 9 or as a customer loyalty program like Marriott (see below).
If this is an employee incentive, the managers hand out scratch off incentive cards to their employees whenever they are observed doing something above and beyond. Whether it's spending extra time with a customer, having perfect attendance, exceeding a sales quota, receiving a compliment from a guest, or exhibiting safe behavior.
As customer loyalty programs, cards are handed out to guests when they check in. You already know your guests have multiple choices for where they can be staying. A scratch off is your way of saying thank you for choosing you. Give away complimentary parking, internet services, a free breakfast, discount at your spa, etc. as the prizes. Whether your guests are staying for one night for business or with their family on a vacation for a week, receiving a scratch off card where they win something is a terrific way to start their stay! Hospitality scratch off contests differentiate you in their mind from your competition. Show your customers you appreciate them and their business - and they'll come back!
RESTAURANT & BAR SCRATCH CARD PROMOTIONS
Scratch off printing gives you a contest people remember. Scratch offs are a terrific way to generate sales at your restaurant or bar. Hand out cards as a seasonal promotion; in conjunction with major sports events like the playoffs, March Madness, or Superbowl; scratch cards can be featured whenever you open a new store; or hand out cards on your slower nights of the week to increase foot traffic.
No one likes receiving their bill - until now! This promotion will increase food and beverage revenues. Have your servers hand out one card to their tables when they are given their check. People can win discounts off their next meal, buy one appetizer get one free, or any restaurant or bar merchandise. Whatever they win can only be used on their NEXT visit into your place, so this encourages a return visit.
On the back of the card, have the people fill in their names and email addresses. This way you're building a database. In order to redeem their scratch off card and collect their prize, the back of the card must be filled out.
We were so excited to help Red Bull design and print this event day scratch off card. The contest ran for 1 day. They wanted something hip, fun, and would promote their Yellow Edition energy drink to their customers.
When the Metropolitan at the 9 opened in Cleveland, Ohio, we were honored to be selected to design their scratch off cards. Used as an employee appreciation program, the scratch off incentives increased their employees' energy and motivation.
Qdoba ran a scratch off contest for all their Kentucky and S. Indiana restaurant locations. Handed out when a customer came in, this restaurant scratch off promotion sky rocketed Qdoba's foot traffic and encouraged repeat visits, boosting revenues.
Involve the labels you sell in bar scratch off promotions to raise both brand awareness and your sales. The Dewar's scratch off cards were a fun contest handed out on certain nights of the week to win Bacardi merchandise and encourage people to try Dewar's.
When you hand out a scratch off card with the bill, it becomes an event people look forward to! Give away free appetizers, $10 off like Joe's Crab Shack - for the next time they return. It encourages repeat business and GREAT word of mouth advertising!
User names, passwords, serial numbers. Multiple art versions. Complex programming. No problem! We offer the highest quality printing with a secure latex ink covering your variable data. We never use labels, which can be peeled off or tampered with.
Scratch off cards are one of the best customer loyalty programs the hospitality industry can run. Handing out a winning card to guests when they check in at your hotel makes their entire stay more exciting and enjoyable. It's a promotion people talk about!
Using scratch off incentives as part of a safety program is a natural fit with the hospitality industry. Used on college campuses in their cafeterias, these safety cards helped to reduce injuries, waste, and increased productivity!
Using custom variable data programming, we were able to come up with a direct mailer for Galt Hotel that really grabbed peoples' attention in their mailboxes! Reminiscent of an advent calendar, people scratched off different doors to find Santa's key.
Scratch off cards are a great way to promote food and beverage brands. Combine giving a percentage off your merchandise along with a unique code that gets entered in your web store, bar scratch off contests increase sales AND traffic to your website!
Restaurant scratch off promotions are always a huge hit. Combine a great photo of your best selling dish on the card to grab people's attention along with a free food item under the scratch area, and you have a contest that people will talk about!
Scratch off cards are a highly effective way to improve safety in the workplace. The hospitality industry is filled with slips, falls, waste, injuries - if you decrease any of these, it dramatically improves your bottom line. Scratch off incentives do just this!
