Light Up Your Marketing

Too many (way too many) times we hear “I just need something to give away with my logo on it”. It causes us pain. Severe pain. With just a little creativity and thinking outside the box, you can tie your branding or message into the item you are giving away, which greatly increases your ROI. Talking to us about your product, service, event, end users and more will enable us to suggest swag that is not only useful, but the perfect vehicle for your message. Today we are going to look at ways to “light up” your branding while tying it into your product or service.

One of our most popular categories on our website is “Ideas under $3”. With that in mind, let’s look at some inexpensive lights that can be used for a variety of branding purposes.

Keyring flashlights make a great small gift for car dealerships, a way to promote a safety message to students on campus or inexpensive trade show handouts. The classic keylite offers great space for your message. Or choose an option with additional useful features like this keyring flashlight with a bottle opener. Styles such as these flat lights make excellent direct mail pieces or we can afix them to a card or other backer for additional space for your message. For more options under $3, visit our website and enter Flashlight in the search box, then sort by price (low to high).

In addition to bottle openers, there are many flashlights that come with tool options such as this screwdriver set, this LED light multitool or one with an added tapemeasure. Depening on the tools added these can make excelling closing gifts or Realtors, promotional items for the construction industry, or tradeshow giveaways for home improvement shows.

LED or COB bulbs provide brighter light, making these flashlights the perfect swag idea for safety programs or to promote a safety message. And think of all the creative ways you can tie a safety tagline or message into your marketing with these compact, but bright aluminum flashlights or this rechargable tactical light. These COB lights are perfect for keeping in the car. Check out more LED lights we can put your logo on here and COB lights here.

Hands free headlamps aren’t often thought of when thinking about flashlights, but these items can be perfect if your target market is runners, marathoners, mechanics, dog walkers or others that need both hands free, but also need a functional light to work by or just to be safe.

Workplace safety is an important issue to address. Whether you are wanting to reduce lost time accidents, increase awareness of safety issues or just promote general safety, a name brand flashlite such as maglite can do just that. Available in many sizes, alone or in sets, Maglite also make excellent client and employee gifts.

Once you choose your branded flashlight, tying it into your marketing or message is the next step. Check out these tagline and slogans to get you started:

“We make your ________ shine”

“Let us shine a light on YOU (your home, your business, etc).”

“We put you in the spotlight”

“Let us brighten up your home (office, life, teeth, etc)”

“Lumens…we put that s*&^ on everything”

“We aren’t a FLASH in the pan”

“XXX and You. We are brighter together”

“Be Bright. Be Bold. Be Safe”

“Keeping you safe day and night”

“Being prepared is being safe”

“You are the reason we shine”

“See us in a whole new light”

Back To Campus Swag

I’m barely over the 4th of July and it’s already time to talk about Back To School swag and giveaways.

As college students move back into dorm rooms or arrive back on campus, there are many opportunities for “Welcome to Campus” gifts or events where you can hand out swag with your branding message.

Everyone loves free stuff, but college students are especially excited about the swag- and they keep it around, thus keeping your message in front of them and their friends.

What is the most popular swag for college students? There are a ton of swag idea that we can help you narrow down based on your needs, budget and event, but some of the best general swag ideas for students are below.

You can never go wrong with stadium cups or can coolies (both for soda only, of course). The imprint area is large on both items, they are lightweight and allow you to add more than one logo or message if needed.

Lip balm is always a hit, especially in the cooler months. It can also be fun to tie a flavor in with the event, especially if it is something seasonal.

Tissue packs are perfect for campus wide handouts- seriously, what student comes to college prepared with tissues? These even work great for parent gifts with a fun saying such as “Don’t cry, we’ve got them from here.”

Any gifts that new students can use in their dorm rooms or apartments are a huge hit. Add your logo to these reusable snack bowls that are microwave safe or if you messaging is more health and wellness related, these portion bowls are a great way to help prevent the “freshman 15”.

Now that they are having to do their own laundry, these mesh laundry bags will come in handy, even if they are using them to take home for the parents to wash every weekend. The non woven laundry bags offers a less expensive option.

These mesh laundry bags come in a variety of colors to coordinate with your school colors

Just like most trade show swag ideas, tech is always popular. Charging cables, cord organizers such as wraps or pouches and phone wallets are all inexpensive swag items students need and will appreciate. We have a variety of tech swag ideas to fit your needs and price range.

Need more ideas for a specific campus event? Give us a call or shoot us an email and we’ll be happy to do the research for you to narrow down your options.
