Juicy Couture Fortune Cookies

You may be thinking that personalized fortune cookies aren’t a promotional item that is right for your business. Or that fortune cookies aren’t an effective way to engage your customers and promote your brand. Both of these assumptions would be incorrect.

FancyFortuneCookies aren’t your plain traditional fortune cookies. As a result businesses that use our flavored fortune cookies receive a better response from customers and clients because of the uniqueness of the cookies. Fortune Cookies receive a 92% read rate according to Wharton School of Business. Imagine that! 92% of the people that get a fortune cookie from your business will read the fortune and see your sales message. Some studies say that as many as 97% of people read a fortune cookie fortune.

Juicy Couture has ordered from FancyFortuneCookies more than once. Here are photos of how they incorporated the cookies into their store.

The employees carried silver trays with the fortune cookies on them. Inside the cookies were messages to the customers about their latest product promotions. Some even offered discounts if a purchase was made that day. It went over so well, Juicy Couture is placing their second order for fortune cookies with us. They didn’t go to a different company, they stayed with us. Why? Because we take care of our clients from beginning to end.

Fortune Cookies personalized with your sayings can be very effective when used to promote your business, services, products, and even your blog. Have you ever been able to resist opening up a fortune cookie, tugging the little fortune out and reading what fate has in store for you? I haven’t. I read them all the time. When the fortunes are especially clever or meaningful I save them. I have a whole collection of fortune cookie sayings and I’m even surrounded by fortune cookies all day long.

Custom fortune cookies can be used to promote a specific product. Mention the selling points on the fortunes. “Did you know the Audi A4 receives 5 stars in all crash test rating areas? Ask about a test drive today.” Personalized fortune cookies can help you to “sell yourself.” “Sandy Johnson has sold over 500 homes in 2009 alone. I would be so fortune-ate for my next sale to be yours!” Promote your business with a clever fortune cookie saying or special discount. “You are fortune-ate! Present this fortune for 10% off any purchase today!” You can even use personalized fortune cookies to promote your personal blog!

Chinese New Year Fortune Cookie Favors

When is Chinese New Year? This year Chinese New Year falls on January 26th so you still have time to find some great favors for your celebration.

2009 is the year of the Ox, which I find highly ironic due to the current economic state of the US, China and the World. What will the year of the Ox bring us?

Great Drawing from

Great Drawing from

• The Ox is the sign of prosperity through fortitude and hard work.
• The Ox is unswervingly patient, tireless in their work, and capable of enduring any amount of hardship without complaint.
• The Ox is not extravagant, and the thought of living off credit cards or being in debt makes them nervous.
• Ox people are truthful and sincere, and the idea of wheeling and dealing in a competitive world is distasteful to them. They are rarely driven by the prospect of financial gain.

Pretty interesting, huh? So in order to be prosperous this year it’s going to take hard work and perseverance, you might go through some hardship and have to keep on going, should be living light and lean, and your main focus should be how can I help those around me.

Whew. I would venture to say, maybe the current economy is a much needed breath of fresh air!

On that note, let me give you guys some good ideas for Chinese New Year sayings and fortune cookie fortunes.

Cute Fortune Cookies for Kids

Here is a story I received from a customer earlier today. I really think it’s a great idea for any kind of kids party, especially birthday parties and class parties. Well, she can tell you better than I can!

Thank you for the wonderful personalized Cherry flavored fortune cookies.
My story: We adopted our daughter from China April 2005. On February 8, 2008 it was her 4th birthday which this year happened to be the day after Chinese New Year started (2/7/08). I asked if I could do a Chinese New Year/Birthday party for her preschool class.
I made cupcakes, used red sprinkles and gold flakes to decorate the icing, then placed a custom fortune cookie on top of each cupcake.
Most of these 3 & 4 year olds did not even know what the fortune cookie was, we had to show them how to break it open and NOT TO EAT THE PAPER inside, it was their fortune. It was a good learning adventure for all of us.
Thank you for your time and efforts. I have attached a picture of the cupcakes.

So keep custom fortune cookies in mind for upcoming kids birthdays, and end of school parties! Kids LOVE or gourmet fruit fortune cookie flavors.
