A few months ago, I heard an article on NPR concerning one company’s continued success at “flipping” houses in spite of the current abysmal state of the housing market. What struck me most was not that companies are still engaging in the morally questionable and sometimes callous act of flipping, it was that the principal leadership of Anchor Loans, the company featured in the article, were all seasoned poker players.
By virtue of its surge in popularity in the last decade, poker has lost much of the stigma that formerly plagued it in the years before. No longer do most people view poker only as a game played by degenerate gamblers or seedy individuals. No, these days, everyone is getting in the act. It’s even found its way to the classroom.
The game is a good way to test your risk-assessment and decision-making abilities, based on the probability of your cards being the winning hand. As the saying goes, poker is one of those games that takes an hour to learn but a lifetime to master, and it’s largely because of its mathematical complexity and depth. While you may not want to encourage gambling at work, a rousing game of poker may help your employees further develop vital decision-making skills needed to make it in today’s fast-paced business world.
In that vein, I thought it would be worth discussing a few of the promotional items available in the InkHead catalog, namely our selection of Promotional Playing Cards and Custom Promotional Poker Sets.
InkHead carries a few different types of playing cards, but our most popular selection are the Smooth Regal Playing Cards, which are created from the highest-grade casino card stock and plastic-coated for a rich texture, resiliency, and snap. Order some today to use as giveaways at the next trade show you’ll be attending; the uniqueness of the item will resonate with attendees, who will be more likely to remember the booth where they got the playing cards than the booths that handed out fliers and business cards.
If you’re looking for a corporate gift for the sharks in your Rolodex, look no further than the PU Leather Poker Set, which includes 100 chips, 5 acrylic dice, and 2 decks of playing cards. Such a set would also make a great prize for your top salesperson of the quarter or for that employee who has greatly improved in their job performance. Your customers will appreciate such a fine gift and hopefully bring more business to your company; your employees will show their gratitude for the excellent present by working harder and inspiring others to work harder. Talk about a good deal.
Custom playing cards and promotional poker sets from InkHead make great gifts for your top-performing employees or poker-loving customers. They would also be very good to use as prizes at a corporate casino night. They may not help you learn how to flip houses more efficiently, but Personalized Playing Cards and Custom Poker Sets from InkHead are always a safe bet.
