Tukaiz Partners with More Media Outlets to Offer Personalized Calendars

FRANKLIN PARK, IL—December 01, 2009—Tukaiz, a leading provider of results-driven marketing communications services, today announced it has renewed its strategic marketing partnership with WGN Radio to once again sell Tukaiz’ exclusive image-personalized calendars on its radio and TV Web sites; and has expanded this enterprise to include other broadcasting stations with a strong online presence. The calendars, which enjoyed widespread appeal as the perfect holiday present last year on the WGN Radio and TV Websites, are also now featured on the English and Spanish Websites of HOY, one of the largest Spanish-language daily newspapers in the U.S., and those of the St. Louis stations of KMOX NewsRadio, KEZK 102.5 and Y98.

These are not the typical calendars featuring family photos or other standard real-life images. The calendars, a practical yet thoughtful keepsake gift that is reasonably priced and easy to create, use an advanced picture personalization technology to incorporate the recipient’s name into classic scenes chosen from either Chicago or St. Louis. As a gift that lasts all year long, each month the calendar will feature a special image that is packed with emotion—like a familiar city street scene with the surprise addition of the recipient’s name on a street sign or a serene winter landscape with the name spelled out in the snow. Also available only on the WGN Radio and TV Web sites—and new for 2010—are personalized invitations and holiday cards that can be customized using the same high degree of technology.

“The huge popularity of the personalized calendars last year encouraged us to make them available to additional markets, along with adding more product choices for the WGN audience,” said Todd Manley, manager of consumer markets for Tukaiz. “These one-of-a-kind, image-personalized calendars, invites, and holiday cards are instant crowd favorites, and we are looking forward to repeating the success of last year’s partnership program this holiday season.”
