When our team helps you purchase branded goods for your company, you need take into account a number of factors such as how much it costs, how many people will see it, how often it will be used and how long it will last. Our sales team will recommend that when you take these aspects into account, there is often one product that comes high above the rest – it’s the printed promotional mug.
Printed mugs are one of the most cost effective products on the promotional merchandise market. While there are lower priced items such as mouse-mats and pens, the humble mug has the main advantage of longevity. People will often discard other imprinted promotional products quite quickly, because they’re unneeded or have served their purpose, but promotional mugs carry on boosting your brand for months, sometimes even years longer.
One of the main reasons for this is because the mug is a functional object that people will seek out to use. Rather than being sat around collecting dust, people will make use of your imprinted mug every time they make a coffee. Whether it's people you’ve given the mugs to as a promotional gift, or people in your own office using your corporate branded items, the mugs will keep advertising your logo.
Perhaps the best thing about the imprinted promotional mugs is the wide range of choice it opens up to you. You can choose from a classy café latte mug, a fatter and wider bell mug for those early mornings where you just can’t get enough of the smell of coffee, or a more traditional style Sparta earthenware mug for a good old fashioned cup of tea. Promote your company and imprint these mugs with your logo on.
You can also choose where you would like your logo to be imprinted. Want your logo facing the drinker? Or facing out when it’s held in the drinkers right hand? It’s totally up to you. Want a full colour photo imprinted onto the mug, or do you simply want the mug in your corporate colours – with the variety of promotional mugs available, the choice is yours.
So are you’re seeking a long lasting imprinted promotional product that works for you? You can’t go wrong with the imprinted promotional mug, an item that gives you all the choice you need at an affordable price. It not only promotes to the person drinking their coffee from it, everyone who passes by their desk will notice the branded mug, and anyone who speaks to them during the course of the day will see the mug sat there. The imprinted mug will certainly be carried around, either to meetings, to and from the kettle, again getting out there and promoting. The smell of coffee draws the eye, and before they realize it, they’ve glimpsed your branding and the mug has done its promotional duty again.
When reading this, you will have inevitably taken a look around to see if you have any printed promotional products placed on your desk, and it’s no surprise that many of you will find a promotional pen that you were sent from a client, or from an event you attended. Imprinted pens have been a much loved item for promoting for many years now, whether you are from Manchester to London in the U.K, or from Glasgow in Scotland and everywhere in between, and there are a number of reasons for this.
The main reason why many imprinted promotional products work is because they promote your business whilst offering a function. Promotional products with your logo on that are not useful to the client might get discarded, or put aside away from viewing, while items with functionality will get kept and used for longer periods of time. This is why imprinted products such as folders, mugs, pens and other stationery products make effective promotional gifts. The majority of people use a writing instrument in their line of work and this tends to make it very favourable.
An additional reason that imprinted pens make a fantastic promotional product is that they can be used in a number of different ways. While some may just see them as a business card with your company name and number printed, they can also be used as a simple giveaway at events and trade shows, or even used to increase corporate branding at your office.
You may not have considered this before, but by branding your pens with your company phone number and name, you can then use them as a business card that they will always be on the desk rather than at the bottom of a drawer or in a file. This is a very unique way of having a company business card, and keeps your details easily reachable.
In our range of promotional products there is a massive choice of different promotional printed pens available. You can choose from recycled pens, cheaper plastic pens, pen sets and luxury pens, all imprinted with your logo. In each category there are a range of different styles and colours. This allows you a substantial variety of choice and ease when picking which promotional pen will represent your company by having your logo imprinted.
While some may think that a pen is a simple item that can’t be changed, some companies have taken steps to innovate the product. You can now buy banner pens, which hide a banner rolled around the inside of the pen. When pulled out, it can display a much larger advertisement than you’d usually get on a pen. Highlighters are also now produced in a variety of shapes, such as flowers or even splats, to help brighten up your desk with your company logo branded on. Products like this are breathing new life into the use of promotional pens.
The pen will have been one of the first things to come to mind when people are asked to name an imprinted promotional product and there is a valid reason for this. Imprinted pens are one of the most successful promotional products, providing a function and promoting at the same time. Writing instruments have evolved from a simple product to probably the leading promotional product, and with the fresh ideas of using them to promote they definitely look like being a leader for a long time.
Imprinted Umbrellas have a number of strong points as promotional merchandise. They come in very useful for either your staff or clients next time they come into a downpour and turn them into your own mobile billboards when your brand logo is imprinted on the panels. If your office is situated in an area away from public transport then it makes a fantastic gift to your clients or staff members that don’t have their own cars and may possibly run a risk of getting caught in the rain before work.
Not only will an imprinted umbrella work for you when your staff are travelling to and from work, but they are also likely to use it in their personal time. This means a simple promotional gift that is given away evolves into so much more. While your clients or staff will be thankful of the kind gesture, they will also be going out in their daily travels promoting your logo.
If you are holding a golf event then it is worth looking at a higher quality and sturdier golf umbrella. These will add a sense of professionalism to your event, rain or shine. Golf umbrellas are a little tougher and you can now buy umbrellas which fit directly to stands on your golfing trolleys.
When it comes to imprinted promotional items, there is no broader branding area and visual than the site of your logo imprinted on a promotional umbrella. The most popular sizes are the 30" inch golf umbrella and not just because of the large area for branding it offers. This size means you can actually get more than one person underneath it, what more could all those of us that still believe in romance ask for!
When you’re choosing which promotional product to give to your staff or clients you may want to think of a functional item that they will continuously use, rain or shine. If this is the case, look no further than a promotional imprinted USB. Nearly everyone’s job involves some dealings with a computer, and Flash Drives allow them to ensure their data is kept handy, even if they're away from the office. We have an enormous range of USBs with the ability to be imprinted up to full color with your logo. We also have the latest new innovations in USB technology such as padlock and fingerprint USBs. You can decide the size of the memory you want to use, from 64MB up to 32GB on some of our range. Our memory sticks come in a mixture of shapes, such as the ever trendy twister flash drive, to make sure you find the one that suits you.
However, with the current economic climate still looming over the marketing budgets of current businesses it is no surprise that you may be worried about the upcoming year and you may be considering deserting plans to use promotional products branded with your logo, alternatively looking to focus your marketing on other methods. But why would you do this?
Promotional products are one of the best and most effective marketing tools for the modern business, with a recent study showing that 84% of respondents recalled a company after receiving a promotional product from them.
Part of the reason imprinted promotional merchandise can have a more positive effective is because they work in a slightly different way than radio campaigns or TV. While TV may bombard us with advertising every advert break, many people are too busy making a cup of coffee to notice. And when they make their coffee, your customers will more than likely be using a promotional mug, imprinted with your logo and name. That's constantly promoting, not just for a couple of minutes in between a TV program.
It’s true that TV advertising can reach a wider audience, but this could have its negative points. Many of the people who see your campaign may not be the people who fit into your target market, or even consider them. Using printed promotional products puts the power in your hands, either to send a mailer containing a gift such as a pen to build recognition before your follow up calls, or to ensure that regular customers are sent a corporate gift.
TV advertising can be an extremely effective form of media, but unlike promotional merchandise it doesn’t work for every company. This is due to promotional products not just being used for promoting but they can help with branding your office or staff to ensure your company looks more official. TV advertising may appear the sexier way to promote your product, but it is often a risk that many businesses simply can’t afford to take.
Talking of TV, at the pinnacle of the UK election it was impossible to turn on the TV without seeing a massive amount of people celebrating victory. With every channel broadcasting pictures of people in London, who in some cases had travelled hours to see the new Prime Minister. Nearly every person who was there to celebrate this historic event was wearing a cap, t shirt or badge that showed their commitment to the new incoming Prime Minister.
The campaigns for UK Prime Minister were highly praised by the media for the intelligent use of several under used tactics. This involved campaigning in smaller overlooked states and heavy use of the internet to create word of mouth. Using imprinted promotional products to back this up, supporters were turned into walking billboards, further showing support for his campaign and helping to reinforce him as a major contender.
On different campaign websites a web shop was used for people to sign up and purchase items that help them display their allegiance to the contender. A variety of promotional products from apparel to bumper stickers were available, all imprinted with his logo, slogan and campaign name. These promotional products helped advertise campaign slogans and it was pushed into the forefront of the minds of many people who saw it. This series of events just goes to show, promotional products can be a fantastic tool in helping reiterate peoples belief in your brand, product, or your even a UK election campaign.
