Promotional Products Work – 18th Edition
4imprint customers tell you how they have used promotional products to grab attention, grow their business, say ‘thanks,’ raise awareness or otherwise spread the word!
Welcome to Promotional Products Work—18th edition
When it comes to storytelling—especially about the power of promotional products—I think it’s best to go right to the source: our customers. They are the true experts in taking a seemingly ordinary product and turning it into something remarkable, like a T-shirt that draws people toward a common goal. Or a mug that makes a new hire feel like part of the team from day one.
From supporting your staff to sharing resources to getting your message out there, promotional products are still making a difference and putting smiles on the faces of those who receive them. Maybe you want your loyal customers to know how much you appreciate them. Or maybe you want to remind donors to consider your cause. Or…maybe you’re just trying to share something good. Whatever your mission, we’re here to help.
Thank you, customers, for sharing these success stories. This project wouldn’t be possible without you, and I’m so proud we could play a small role in your continued success. Please share this e-book with anyone who could benefit from the stories inside. And if you have your own story to share, we’d love to hear from you!
Hope you’re all staying safe and healthy.

We had planned to hand out our custom labeled hand sanitizer to everyone at our next event or when folks came by the office, but we knew there was a bigger need. We decided to donate them all to our local hospital in McKinney, TX. They were very happy for the donation. We’re all in this together!!

We ordered alumni branded sunglasses to give away to our graduating seniors. They were unable to have a proper graduation ceremony this year, so we assembled some items, including these sunglasses, and sent them a “graduation in a box.” Students and parents were thrilled with the surprise and posted about it on social media, which also turned into an online engagement point. It was a very successful endeavor!

Good morning! Just sat down to work from home in my new office (the dining room) during quarantine time here in New York and am about to take my first sip of coffee in my new 10oz Riviera Ceramic Mug. I ordered these for my employees having to work from home during these uncertain times. It’s a little thank you from the company to help them stay motivated and know we are thinking of them!

As we are a manufacturing facility, the VP of Operations wanted to reward all the shop employees for their hard work and after he consulted with me trying to figure out the perfect item to give the employees, we came up with this jacket due to fact that it’s a windbreaker, waterproof, has a hood, and the color not to mention that our embroidered logo color would stand out on the upper chest area.

Our company achieved one year with no OSHA recordables. In going back through records – went as far back as early 90’s – this has not been done in all those years. We wanted to say thank you and keep focused on safety. We ordered the sweatshirts, rolled them and put a tie around them with a note stating, “thanks for working safely”, etc.
