A bank realized that the most action in a home happens in the kitchen. It’s where the family gathers and discussions occur. They gave out pizza cutters that are easy to use and safe for kids.

Or can be a subtle reminder to consider switching their banking to the advertising bank. The cutter stays in the home for years of brand awareness.
