  • How to use temporary tattoos in museums to generate curiosity amongst children in arts

    Creative use of temporary tattoos to get kids interested in arts music science and maths Use temporary tattoos at museums to get kids interested in arts

    Tattoos have been known to exist beside us since ages...only that their usage, types and the manifesting process has changed from time to time. Temporary tattoos came to a powerful posture in the 20th century with bubble gums offering them inside their packaging and that too free of cost. Kids endured it with all delight and eventually got crazy for it... I as a millennial is a living witness this! So, Tattoo for fun proposes quite a common way of indulgence for kids. Here let us not forget the fact that the children must definitely be engaged in some of the other learning processes.

    As all of us are aware that learning is not confined to any boundaries. It can come from almost any source. These days’ schools and teaching styles are inclined more towards practical ways of teaching and for this purpose excursion and visits to various educational places are a part of the curriculum. However, there are various educational places which do not have the privilege to be interesting. Places like amusement parks have the fun quotient for children but what can one say about industrial visits like a local dairy factory, museums or the famous garden. So, it is up to the guides and teachers to make these excursions happy and interesting ones. Temporary tattoos can be one beautiful way to engage children with not so interesting educational places. Distribution of temporary tattoos to children will encourage them to show interest in those places and eventually they would end up loving those places.

    Ace temporary tattoo designers Adam and Imke are two people who have positively garnered the idea of converting not so lucrative in educational places into attractive temporary tattoos for children. They even showcased this talent at the Rijks Award 2017, under the name Rijks Tattoos. The competition is based on the idea that you take some of the artworks from the museum and make something different with them. Temporary tattoos were Adam and Imke’s presentation under this competition. They converted the artworks into creatively designed temporary tattoos which were loved by the audience. This was one instance of how a boring museum visit of children could be transformed into an interesting one.

    Not only museums but also places like historical monuments, botanical gardens, and process industries can be made lucrative for children to learn these things using the temporary tattoo concept. Educational institutions must cleverly gear up on this concept to gauge the attention of the even the distractive kiddos out there.

    Gumtoo is highly obliged to designers Adam and Imke who shared their unique temporary design concept with us. We are inclined to being into a collaborative mood with educational institutions to provide more horizons to this concept.

  • Ang Pao Temporary Tattoos

    The Chinese New year is a celebrated festival throughout the world. It is widely circulated as the “Spring Festival.” The festival as evident from its name marks the start of the Chinese calendar. The celebrations start from the New Year eve with the lighting of the traditional Chinese lantern. Chinese people have given the world the art of traditionally made lanterns which are beautiful and in this age used in almost every part of the world. It is an auspicious day for the Chinese community and a time to start afresh leaving the past behind. This January 28 is the day which will mark the start of the Chinese year; a rooster year. For the people of China, spring festival is the most important festival of the year and they have a line of rituals to perform during this celebration.

    Ang Pao is one such ritual which is practiced by the Chinese community during the CNY celebrations. In English Ang Pao translates to “Red Envelope” and the tradition is to hand over money in red envelopes to young and unmarried people by the old and married ones. Now, red is the color of prosperity and good Luck in the Chinese culture. It is the color which represents China outside of China. This affiliation towards red by the Chinese makes the color a must for any special occasion, be it a baby shower, wedding or even New Year. The money inside the envelope ends with an even digit and does not include the number four in it.

    Gumtoo decided to make this tradition even more exciting and lucrative for the younger generation. Tattoos are eventually loved by children of all age groups and Gumtoo decided to project this love along with these red envelopes which were handed over to them. This time we have come up with tattoos inside of red envelopes which could be used by elders to shower blessings on the younger ones. The tattoo-clad packets would be well received by the children and they will have double reason to rejoice; money which makes everyone happy and a tattoo which is a child's favourite. This engagement of kids makes sure that they are attached to their roots and near to their ethnic tradition.

    Above was an in a general way to offer fun and engagement to children but Gumtoo has come up with a larger picture for the corporates of Singapore. Brands can take this way as an opportunity to have the odds in favor of them. They can back the tattoo giving inside red envelopes by sponsoring them and having their brand logo printed on the tattoo. By means of this Brands can reach more near to the common mass and as it is well said,” close to sight is close to mind.” Tattoo offering can drive a lot of audience to the red envelope and thus more attention to the brand.

    Gumtoo is helping brands create a greater reach with its reliable and smart temporary tattoos. We invite more and more corporates to try the concept and make CNY a more memorable one.

  • How clothing brand Whistle and Flute is using temporary tattoos to WOW the kids

    Whistle & Flute is famous kids Wear Company which believes in designing innate clothing lines exclusively for kids rather that opting for a smaller version of adult clothing. The owners Miranda and Ryan, both designers started off with a vision to provide kids their unique style of appearance. Each and every aspect right from fabric selection to original artwork is taken care at the company.

    Whistle & Flute designs are deeply influenced by the likes and dislikes of kids. Even more, they are consistent with the same characteristics in the marketing department. W&F, always finds a way enough attractive, to sell their clothing to children. This time the offer was custom temporary tattoo sheets by Gumtoo. For the latest promotions, the Canadian brand had pre-ordered these sheets with tattoo designs which focus on their brand identity.  The temporary tattoo designs reflected the exclusive designs by the brand and were launched keeping in mind that kids would love to wear their favourite brand on their skin. However, adding to the marketing strategy, they gave away sheets to those customers whose orders were of $75 or beyond.

    The idea of promotions using temporary tattoos is a time tested one for attracting little ones. Tattoos are worn by children with utmost delight and they love to flaunt it on their bodies. On a serious note, having a tattoo is a matter of pride for child in his gang, and with a tattoo depicting a favorite brand one can imagine the happiness of the child. The kind of response which W&F garnered, both during and after promotions was overwhelming. They were showered with praises and love even on the social networking sites by the moms who were gifted these tattoos.  Some Instagram snapshots are pasted below:

    This is just a case of kids focussed clothing brand. Further, any brand can order their custom made temporary tattoos anytime from Gumtoo as it would a better idea to connect to their target audiences.  This is so because temporary tattoos are one of those tiny things which are loved by people of all ages.  Cost effectiveness is yet another reason to go for brand promotion through tattoos. The procuring cost for customized temporary tattoos is very less as compared to other gifting articles used for brand promotion. Hence, the customer need not pay much to grab the tattoo gifts as in case of W&F it was just &75. Eventually, companies with low budgets can also opt for such promotions and that too without getting overloaded.

    Conditional distribution of tattoos as done by W&F is just one way to use them for promotion. Brand can even chalk out some other creative ideas like contest etc.  to use tattoos for promotion. The quality of tattoos manufactured by Gumtoo is at par with international standards hence they are safe for all age groups. Also we provide assistance related to tattoos to our clients at any point of time during the event.

    Let your brand spread wings with temporary tattoo assisted promotions!!!

    Owing to this interest of the general public, Singapore witnesses a galore of running events. The Colour Run being one of those fun-filled running events which has a definite potential to attract masses to the streets for a necessary health bites. The Color Run is 5K run organised with a theme “Take a 5K vacation in your city”. This year the event took place on the 20th and 21st of August at Sentosa Palwan Green with a Tropicolor Zone. Known to be “Happiest 5K on the planet”, the Color Run is a worldwide commemorating the festivity of joy and fitness. Lashed with a Super Cool after party featuring palm trees, bright colors, and tropical powders, Color Run provides a participant kit having the essentials of enjoying it to the fullest.

    Coming to the successful organisation of running events, sponsors play a vital role. They are the ones backing these events and helping out financially where needed. A lot of this help is mutual and comes in trade of the exposure and promotion the brand would get at the event. There can be more than one way to execute promotion, like banners, flyers etc. However, setting up a temporary tattoo booth is one of the best ways in which these brands could not only connect to the public in the most efficient manner but also add to the fun activity of the event. One can have custom temporary tattoos designed for the event which also has the brand name and logo on it. This booth can be set up at the entry of the event or at the finish line. People love to take remembrance out of these events and what can be more interesting than wearing it on the body!!!

    Talking about an actual implementation of this temporary tattoo booth, Haribo, the international manufacturer of sweet products like jellies and liquorice actually implemented this idea at the 2016 Color Run event. It had set up a counter for distribution of sweets alongside temporary tattoos. The customized temporary tattoos were manufactured by Gumtoo for using at the tropicolor event. It was bright and colourful, embarking a sense of happiness in everyone who applied it. Team Haribo was very much pleased with the kind of overwhelming response they garnered from the public.

    A running event is for fun and fitness. People like to cheer up, enjoy and have a frolic time. They are likely to avoid any extravagant things.

    Often credit card and financing companies are seeing sponsoring these events, hence it is obligatory for them to have a counter of their own. Everything falls in the correct place except for when they try to sell something. Point to be noted here is that they should try to promote their brand at running events not sell products because at such events it is the last thing one would like to do. Keeping temporary tattoo at counters, as evident from the Haribo example can just be the right idea to engage the public in brand promotion.

    The Singaporean culture of running benefits everyone involved in it and theme based running events are pretty exciting to watch out for.

    Come on Singapore --- Keep up the running spirits!!!
