It’s That Time of Year: Bernick’s Graduation Banners

by Roberta Ringstad on April 21

The end of another school year is fast approaching, and you know what that means: caps, gowns, and graduation parties. We’re excited to bring you our graduation banners promotion again this year!

Bernick’s Banners Over the Years

We started our graduation banners promotion in 2011. At this time, the process was done completely manually. When individuals made a purchase, they could email or bring their receipt into Bernick’s, and we would fill out paper order forms for each and every banner.

We had such great success and helped so many party planners with their graduation banners that we decided to take it a step further. In 2012, we created a microsite for our custom grad banners. On the website, you can enter your promotional code, order a banner, and add custom design elements all in the comfort of your own home. We still handle each and every order, but the process is much more streamlined.

Grad Banners Boost Business

CaptureOur custom grad banner promotion isn’t just great for those planning to celebrate a graduation; it’s also great for the businesses who participate! Because customers can receive a promo code for a discounted banner with the purchase of Pepsi and/or Crush soft drinks, it means they’ll head to your establishment to make the purchase. Not only are you able to advertise your participation in the grad banner promotion, but you are also able to reward your customers for their purchases.

The Bernick’s graduation banners program also helps our customers drive quantity buys in their store. As noted on our banner website, an individual can purchase a variety of:

  • 4 – 24 packs or 20 packs
  • 6 - 12 packs
  • 6  - 16.9oz 6 packs
  • 12 – 2 liters

to receive a code that saves them $50 on the purchase of a custom 3x6 foot banner. Because of this, stores are able to encourage quantity purchases. Our Bernick’s custom graduation banners program is a win-win for all involved. It’s easy for stores to orchestrate and great for parents looking for an inexpensive way to honor their special graduate.

Representing Our Values

So why did we start our graduation banners promotion? It’s part of who we are and it helps us strengthen our values. At Bernick’s we strive for innovation, creativity, and new ideas. We’re always looking for a way to provide value to our customers and consumers, and the grad banners promo helped us do that.

The custom banners program also speaks to our commitment to and emphasis on loyalty. We greatly value loyalty to and from our team, our history, our brands and our community. We’re happy to be able to reward those who choose Pepsi and Crush products with a graduation banner, and help our clients reward those who shop with them.

How does it Work?

There are two different ways you can get a custom grad banner. The first option is to simply purchase the banner online for $80. Another option is to make a qualifying purchase of Pepsi and/or Crush soft drink products within our distribution area. After your purchase, you submit your receipts, receive a promo code, and create your banner online. When you make a purchase, your promo code will save you $50, so you’ll only pay $30 for a custom banner! There just isn’t much you can get for $30 these days, is there?

Each graduation banner is 3 feet by 6 feet and made of quality material. The banners are customizable with templates using different designs and 1 to 4 images. Once you’ve created your custom grad banner, you can get it shipped directly to you or pick it up at a Bernick’s office in Waite Park, Duluth, or Dresser, Wi. Each banner typically takes just 7-10 business days to complete.
