Mediacy launched the BrandWrapper, which allows advertisers to place ads on sandwiches and other to-go foods in partner coffee bars and delis nationwide.
Advertising on sandwich wrappers is cheap, costing less than ten cents per wrapper. The media buy is brokered through Mediacy, with agencies providing wrapper creative.
It takes three weeks for creative to appear on wrappers; 4-color art is used and printed using vegetable inks. Campaigns can run for a little as one week.
"There has not been a new and innovative POS packaging product since coffee sleeves hit the market more than a decade ago," said Michael Gitter, president of Mediacy.
Credit card companies, beverages and OTC pharmaceutical accounts would be ideal BrandWrapper advertisers, according to Gitter. One advertiser example was a sandwich wrapped in the recognizable "Got Milk" logo. This would work on numerous sandwiches aside from the mainstay peanut butter and jelly.
Pepto-Bismol and Tums should be all over the spicy sandwich market. Can you imagine ordering a buffalo chicken sandwich wrapped in a Tums logo?
