Promotional Products Primer
Whether it's a pen, a card holder or a cool t-shirt, everyone loves a promotional product.
And, it's not just about getting all the free stuff you can carry, it's about giving a business a chance to establish its brand, promote products and services, reinforce logos and thank those customers that stick by you.
The following products—provided by Promo Marketing magazine—offer a variety of ways for companies to raise revenue, boost brand and give a big thanks.
Wine is Its Own Reward
Plaques and trophies are nice, but sometimes the best award is the one that can be used. Picnic Time offers a lot of high-end gifts that are a great way to reward employees, like the Barossa-Moka Wine Tote. In addition to a fully-insulated compartment for bottles, the bag includes two 8 oz. acrylic wine glasses, a waiter-style corkscrew, a nickle-plated bottle stopper and two 100 percent cotton napkins.
Don't Hate the Player
Didn't think you had it in you to be a player? Think again! With The Player from Dunbrooke, you won't just play, you can be captain of the team. This 5.5 oz., 60 percent cotton/40 percent polyester blend provides comfort features like moisture-wicking performance fabric, three button placket, knit trim collar and cuffs, and a full cut with even hem and side vents.
Life's a Beach
For a fun twist on the standard tumbler, HOWW Manufacturing offers its 12 oz. Compartment Tumbler. There are six different beach themes available and over 100 stock themes for any event. It is made of styrene and has an imprint area of 4x2". Any size order can be customized, and it is made in the USA.
So Fresh and So Clean
Both desktop and laptop computers collect an obscene amount of dust, dirt and grime from daily usage.
Keep them looking new with the 2-In-1 Clean & Sweep from Hit Promotional Products. It works great for both keyboards and screens, and is available in several solid and translucent colors. A 11⁄4x1" imprint comes on the front with an optional back imprint available.
Hold Out for This Holder
Crystal World's Card Holder presents business cards at bank teller windows or on a loan officer's desk in a clean, attractive fashion. The 33⁄4x21⁄4x11⁄4" holder is made from pure optical crystal and has a 31⁄2x1" imprint area. It's the only hold-up you can have in a bank that won't result in a prison sentence.
Perfect for the boardroom or the bank, Logomark's Esecutivo I includes a 40-page writing pad for all your notes. The inside features a file sleeve, pen port and mesh pocket, while the outside is wrapped in an ostrich-skin finish. A 3" by 11⁄4" printed or debossed logo can appear on the front panel of the 91⁄2" by 131⁄2" padfolio.
Grande y Vibrante
When in need of a high-quality imprint on a sturdy and durable mug, go for the El Grande Standard 4CP Mug from MB Works. It can hold 15 oz., is made of ceramic and has the classic C-handle design. With its four-color dye sublimation print, it is an excellent choice for graphics that cannot be reproduced with normal screen printing.
