After 25 plus years in this business, I feel like I should have seen and done it all- from the tried and true Bic Clic Stic to the ultra trendy fidget spinners (I think we can all agree this fad needs to end quickly). So when someone asks for something I have never been asked for before, it’s always surprising. For example, today I had a client wanting branding irons. Yes, we have those. So it made me think, what other items do our clients not realize we can add their logo to, what items are actually in the swag category that you wouldn’t think of?
Bottled Water– we get tons of requests for water bottles, but we can also do bottles of water in a variety of sizes, shapes and even colors. 8 oz bottles are small and convenient for using in a showroom, for office visitors or handing out at events. 12 oz and 16 oz are popular sizes for tradeshows and meetings. We even have recycled and eco friendly bottle styles available and flat or sport caps. With multiple shipping locations across the US, we can find a shipping point closest to you to help with freight costs as well.
Patio Umbrellas– I love to sit outside on the patio at restaurants as often as possible and always notice the umbrellas (I think it’s a hazard of the job). Beverage distributors, food distributors and restaurants can add their logo to one or more panels. Or alternate logos around the umbrella for even more impact.
Mascots & Costumes are in our wheelhouse as well. There are a variety of stock designs you can choose from such as bears, bunny costume, lion, bulldog and more OR we can custom design one for you. Starting from your concept or using stock design as a base, our designers can work with you to create mascot costume unique to you. Need help coming up with a mascot for your company? That’s no problem either. Just give us a call and we can discuss your needs and work on ideas for you.
Giant Inflatables- it is a little bit of a broad category. All of the larger than life blow up items such as giant inflatable “dancers” (those things seriously freak me out), blimps, giant balloons and other inflatable shapes are all available with or without an imprint. These are used a lot by auto dealerships, for grand openings, outdoor events and at any business or retail location to attract attention. We can even have a custom shape made of your mascot (to match the costume above) or logo.
Rugs and floor mats are used by many companies, colleges & universities, banks, restaurants, leasing companies, grocery stores and more for entry way rugs to not only showcase their logo and “welcome” people, but to trap water, mug and dirt from being tracking throughout the building and keep their entry way looking clean and neat. Indoor/Outdoor rugs are durable enough to withstand traffic and look nice for a long time.
These are just a few of the more unusual categories that many people don’t think of when they are looking at branded or logo items and don’t realized that they fall into the realm of promotional products. My general rule of thumb is, if you can think of it, we can put your logo on it.
Whether you need normal swag items such as pens, shirts and mugs or you want something a little more unusual and unique, our team is here to help you find exactly what works for you.
