    I hate these mental blocks :p

    Anyhoo I am trying to write a passage about a piece of artwork and can't think of the word I need. :eek:

    I am trying to say the artwork is used to make the item desirable so that the person keeps the item instead of throwing it away. 'Keepable' if you will :rolleyes: But what is the word I am missing?
    The passage reads:

    A promotional item that acts both as a contact reference and appointment card for a professional hairstylist.

    The artwork is used to make the item ...

    I know exactly the kind of word you mean but I can't think of it either. :p

    Could you say something like "The artwork used makes the item something worth treasuring" instead?

    Boom... I think you've got it!

    Cheers guys. I initially went with 'more desirable and less disposable'. :eek:

    Keepsake is spot on. Thanks rdowns.

    (Our, My, The) artwork transforms this [item] into an appealing keepsake your future clients will hold on to, a happy reminder of your business's name and contact information.

    ...highly addictive?
    ...worth enormous amounts of money on the black market?
    ...release all the right pheromones?
