Promotional marketing is everywhere you look. It is an effective way to advertise your product, company, service or event, used all the time by businesses and the everyday population. Common items like magnets, calendars, calculators and mugs are imprinted with a brand name or a logo so people will retain a conscious or subconscious memory of the company. Every time you get something out of the refrigerator, your eyes make contact with the magnet advertising a certain business. When you’re out at a baseball and wearing a custom baseball cap promoting the home team, everyone around you can’t help but take a mental note of the display.
Brands and logos are all around us, so what does it take to make yours stand out from the crowd? Companies can develop an image by purchasing their own crafted promotional products. These can be handed out at holiday parties, raffled off or used as stocking stuffers. They can serve as a memento for a special event or for staff to show company pride and to improve morale. These items are generally everyday items like mini flashlights, first aid kits and keychains. While the staff are always grateful that they are appreciated by the company, their display of these items gets your name out to places that the marketing department could have never reached on their own. Promotional products take your name out to the real world. This can also be a cost saving measure when marketing has trouble placing ads in effective areas, wasting valuable time and merchandising dollars.
However, buying promotional products is not only reserved for the businessman. Imprinted items can be used for bridal parties, baby showers and any other event to make it more personal. It can mark an event like an anniversary or even a special trip. Organizations interested in having company retreats or picnics can reach out to a promotional product manufacturer to make inscribed awards and trophies. Weddings have imprinted matchbook covers and ribbons with the new couple’s name on it. Golf tournaments may have polo shirts with the organization’s logo displayed. Politicians hand out pens with their “vote for me” statement revealed. You name it – if the surface is printable, there’s a merchandising opportunity.
Now that you know what opportunities are available for you and your company, you need to entrust yourself with a dependable merchandiser that will walk you through the process. There is more to it all than calling up the company and ordering 1,000 pens. There are graphic designs, color combinations and fonts to be discussed and designed, just to name a few of the many decisions that need to be made.
