In the old days, businesses gave promotional gifts like pens, calendars, mugs and caps. These are still hugely popular and often good choices.

Some companies want something different, a unique corporate gift, and these days, wow, you can put your logo on anything!

My husband thinks it’s amusing to say that you could put your logo on Toby Keith’s “behind”, but I suppose that is actually true, for a price it probably could be done.  Your logo, on anything.

The only limit is your imagination.

Poke around on the Explore Products page.  Try typing in an unusual search term just to discover the universe of possible items you can custom imprint.

Or type in a search term related to your business.

 

Things we’d never imagine can be custom imprinted. There’s bound to be something that ties into your business message.

Beyond that, using my 20 years experience (and sophisticated professional search tools) I can help you find something unique to use as a corporate marketing tool.

You like having your name and phone number at your customer’s desk, don’t you?  Well, a calendar does it – all day and every day.

Everyone has a calendar at their desk or on their wall and at home.* It’s easy to put your name where customers and prospects will see it every day (and your logo, web address, email, graphics, pictures, and more).

Calendars are great. They appeal to all ages and genders.

Calendars have high impact and are low-cost.  You can also save money by controlling who they’re given to.

A customer displaying your calendar is like a personal recommendation of your brand to anyone who sees it.  And they don’t “walk off” or get taken, like, say, pens.

There are different sizes, ones that go on a keyboard or monitor, magnetic, 3D, cd booklets, planners

Here are a couple quick things to know:

-Quantities start as low as 100 for simpler calendars.
-Ordering your calendars in the summer gets you a better price than if you order them in October or November.

(You order them in the summer but you don’t take delivery and you don’t pay for them til you’re ready but you’ve at least got them ordered, you don’t have to worry about it, it’s taken care of.)

 *Even in these days of mobile phones and computers, recent studies showed 98% of homes and 100% of businesses use at least one calendar, and that 50% of people have never used the calendar feature on their cell phone.

It feels good to say thank you.  It feels good to be thanked.

Some people like to give their customers an unexpected gift, not as a marketing tactic or as a sales tool, but just as a way of saying “thanks” for their patronage.

A simple gesture like that helps retain customers, and we all know that it’s more cost-effective to keep existing customers than to acquire new ones.

There are many occasions that merit thank you’s

  • project completion
  • touring your facility
  • attending an event
  • viewing a demonstration
  • request for information
  • end of year and holidays

And people who should be thanked

  • volunteers
  • donors, fundraisers
  • vendors
  • employees (landmarks, anniversaries, training)

Your thank you gift shouldn’t be over-the-top expensive because that could seem extravagant. It depends on what you’re thanking them for.

If you are thanking a prospect for letting your company fly them to the Bahamas and put them up in a private resort to hear your presentation on capital investments, your gift probably should be expensive.  For others, a more appropriate thank you gift might be a logo imprinted coffee mug full of chocolates.

Something that is tasteful and useful will be well received and won’t get thrown away or banished to the back of a drawer.

A thank you gift that ties into your business message and has your graphics custom imprinted on it will prompt your customers to keep coming back.

I get to do what I love doing (and have been doing for over 20 years), helping customers get their promotional products, and make a living at it.

And that contributes to your part in the success of the US Economy – promoting and growing your business.

We also like products Made In USA because of

  • Quicker turnaround time (from order to delivery)
  • Savings in shipping and customs
  • Better quality control
