“We own a real estate firm in North Carolina and are always looking for fun items to brand. We’ve had tumblers in the past and we loved the opportunity to brand on white tumblers this time around. These are perfect gifts for our favorite clients, vendors, and colleagues. A good price, paired with super fast shipping. It’s truly a win win!”
– Amy from Nest Realty
“We love our mugs and give them to new hires at orientation to introduce them to our Employee Wellness Program. The full-color mugs are bright and came out great—plus [they] serve as a daily reminder of the 5 areas of well-being our program is centered around!”
– Joyce from Esse Health
“We love our pint glasses we ordered for our Main to Main marathon, half marathon and 10K! They are our top finisher prizes! Our theme this year is cows, so we incorporated the cow design made by our marketing manager on the glasses! We are excited to give them out this year!!”
– Sarah from the Main to Main Marathon
“We used the Refresh® Pebble Tumbler to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary and we added some goodies for the employees to enjoy. Everyone loved their tumbler and [we] have seen a bunch of them filled with energizing coffee after their sugar high!”
2. Shirts to share your logo
Shirts can be used for a wide variety of promotional needs, from employee uniforms to trade show giveaways to rewarding volunteers for their hard work. That’s why they’re frequently cited as a favorite promotional product.
“We love our tie-dye tees! We are wearing our new shirts in the community while spreading eating disorder awareness and education, hoping to de-stigmatize eating disorders and help more people feel safe in reaching out for help. Thanks for helping us look the part!”
– Jill from Recovery Rocks
“Patterson Dog and Cat Hospital in Detroit is the oldest veterinary clinic in the country! We just celebrated our 175th anniversary with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and the unveiling of our National Register of Historic Places plaque. We love our T-shirts!”
– Amanda from Patterson Dog and Cat Hospital
“Our company volunteers rocked our 4imprint shirts at the KY Pride Festival! The bright colors really popped!!! #SwaggingRights”
– Kayla from Derby City Gaming
“We use these embroidered polos as our volunteer uniforms for the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park! Thanks!”
– Merrin from Boston Harbor Islands National and Sta
3. Put your logo on display
Trade shows and vendor fairs are popular places to find all kinds of top promo items. Standing out can be a challenge. Traditional display items are an excellent way to get your logo seen by everyone who walks by.
“We used 4imprint for our table cover at a vendor street fair to promote our dental practice and meet people from our community face to face.”
– Luciana from Daniels Group Dentistry
“Every year Western Michigan University has multiple “Involvement Zone” events during new student orientation. We use our table cloth to make our table stand out and get noticed easier so we can reach more students.”
– Jeremy from Western Michigan University
“We send these fantastic lanyards to our students when they are accepted and confirm enrollment. Just a way to say “Welcome to Lincoln College!!! We can’t wait to see you on campus.”
– Valerie from Lincoln College
“We reached out to 4imprint because we knew we needed new retractable banners. Dale Carnegie recently developed a new logo & branding and we wanted our promotional products to reflect that. 4imprint made the process very easy and now we have four great banners that are making an impact in our courses, at networking events and in our office! We are proud to represent Dale Carnegie Training with these banners!”
– Brandin from Dale Carnegie Training
4. Creative giveaways make memories
Picking a creative item gives you the chance to tie your brand to good memories. Choose an item that reminds people of your event, shares your brand in an unusual way, or shows customers you care. They’ll remember you fondly every time they use it.
“We are a title company and we love to give all new homeowners a gift when they buy their home. We feel doggies are new homeowners also, so we like to have them get in on the celebration, so if a customer has a dog, we encourage them to take a treat for their pet homeowners also!” – Katie from GTS
“We stapled our pamphlets to the eagle jar openers we ordered. Now when we go to trade shows and people grab one of our items, they also will leave with a pamphlet. Many won’t just grab a pamphlet on their own. By adding it to an item such as the jar opener, people are more likely to read the pamphlet when they are putting the jar opener away. It helps us send a lot more pamphlets home with people. We are excited to watch the number of veterans we service expand due to the promotional products.” – Rachel from Tuscola County Veterans Affairs
