Although I no longer am in the business world I still found ordering your products for my wife's' birthday celebration in 2016 a big hit. Everyone asked where I got the pens and rubberized can holders and how beautiful they were. So another idea is to use your products as party gifts for a large (50-60+ people) celebrations in you and yours life. You offer so many small items that almost everyone can use that it makes sense to give them as remembrances of the event to your guests. Thanks also to all the wonderful people on your staff who helped me choose my party gifts.
4imprint has a kind of signature they leave on any product made through their company. they really understands how devastating and confusing disappointments are to their customers and they very much seem to have that as their major look-out for. Also, i will keep doing business with them, they are very tight to excellence.
I love working with 4imprint, great service, timely deliveries, and a wonderful p product. I have pens made with my business logo and phone #; my customers love them. With each new batch, I change the color scheme to keep things fresh; my customers are now "voting" for the next new color!
I work a lot with students in higher ed. I try to find products that I believe will be useful for them. I am generally looking for an item that is cost effective; yet, has good quality. I have found a few with the samples that I really like. Just waiting on the time of year to order!
This is a great tool for testing products before a final purchase.
