For Your Cause

Whether it’s a nonprofit, school store or fundraising, if you need money for the mission, promotional products work.

 

I have a kids tri club/team, and I put on 2 kids triathlons. The tattoo is going to be used as a race packet stuffer for other kids races and for my own races. The tattoo is my logo so having kids wear it will increase the “brand” recognition.

We use these bags for our 5K charity races and they’re amazing. Inexpensive, hold the promo items well and they’re biodegradable.

We ordered cobalt blue mugs with our logo and information imprinted in white. We then gave them to customers and advertisers who had donated to our cause or supported our newspaper over the past year. They were well received and we will likely be ordering more for sale as well.

We are a WIC office and one objective is to promote more physical activity. We chose your frisbees to encourage parents to be active with their children.

We used the tote bags in our hoagie sale fundraiser to create a Family Meal Pack…when families purchased 4 hoagies, a bag of chips, and a tub of cookie dough, they received a free tote to put it all in!

The lanyard wallet was purchased to hold student ID cards and to hold a score card used in positive reinforcement for our student population to allow administration to see if we are improving student behavior with a new program we are implementing.

We are a very NEW non profit organization with a 501 c 3 status, and we need to get our name out, what we do and what we want to do with ‘KRITTERSVILLE’, THE ANIMAL REFUGE OF THE FUTURE… people are seeing us and hearing about us and the products have help greatly.

Build Your Brand

From small business to big business, university to nonprofit, the name of the game is to make sure people know who you are and what you’re about. Promotional products work when it comes to building your brand.

 

Fern Valley on the Soque is a Trophy Trout Stream in North Georgia. We love to surprise our guest with a 4imprint hat at the end of their experience. Anglers love to collect hats from their favorite places, so naturally we want them to have this token of our appreciation. The wearable advertising is a bonus! Thank you 4imprint for making this an affordable option for us to promote our business.

A radio station needs a presence in the community it broadcasts in. With our logo boldly showing on our white polo shirts at events we pulled that off. We are easily identified in our community and our KBPK shirts look AMAZING! Thank you 4imprint!

We purchased the cork coasters to give away to customers and local businesses so that our contact information is always right in front of them on their desk… they have been our most popular item yet!

I like to stay ahead of the curve and provide my clients with something utilitarian. In Southern California, they will be charging for plastic bags at the grocery stores starting this summer, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for me to provide my clients with something that would not only save them money, but help brand my business in the process.

Greg with Alanwood Marketing & Advertising, # 103721, Polypropylene Reusable Grocery Bag

 

I sell “Response Plans” (bug out bags). The bright orange tags can be used to attract attention and you can write important info on the back of the tag (e.g. allergies, cell phone numbers, medications) to help out the first responders in a natural disaster scenario.

Michael with PAR Guns, # 8186, Small ID Tag

 

Our company hosted a local Management / Leadership class that was filled with directors, CEOs, and managers from local businesses. We are a small business and we wanted to ‘get our name out’ and keep our company’s name on their minds once they left for the day.

I bought the shirts specifically for a meeting I had with Daymond John. He actually said he loved the shirt!

We just acquired six new locations for our business and we sent them these pads to help with branding at these new stores as well as to give our employees some nice new office supplies!

We want to show our clients appreciation for their continued business and to show off our new logo. The microfiber cloths with our logo is a gift that is useful but will also keep our name in their minds. In the past we have sent out wall calendars – time to shake things up.

We give out our pens to groups who are making goody bags for their charity events like golf tournaments, 5k runs and jump rope for heart. These events hit a wide age range and even people from outside our area.

Spreading the Word

Whether it’s public safety or a simple community reminder, here are a few ideas to help spread the word about your special campaign.

 

We used the gloves as a free promotional item giveaway for a winter event. The logo on the gloves promoted our annual event and is an item the public can use daily.

We are a not for profit organization and hold an annual fundraiser yearly. We used our items to give to donors who attended. Getting our name out into the community is important for us to grow.

Our church had seed packets imprinted with our logo and the phrase “come grow with us”. These are placed into welcome bags distributed by the Chamber of Commerce. As a small church, we don’t have a lot of money to spend on giveaway items. These were an inexpensive way to invite someone to church, and give something that can be used.

I am the Welcome Chair for our Community. Twice a year we host Welcome Receptions. I used this bag as a welcome gift. I also bought several for a girls getaway, packing them with goodies from candy to aspirin. The ladies loved them, using them throughout the shopping trip.

Elissa from Grand Prairie, # 105488, Fun Tote

 

We ordered logo mugs (filled with candy) as part of our gift to be given to visitors to our church. Our logo mugs make sure they have our information in front of them frequently.

We held a company wide training and we gave these tumblers to staff to help promote a healthy lifestyle by reminding them to drink more water but also a sustainable lifestyle by encouraging use of this tumbler vs. bottled water.

Jocelyn from Akron, # 119497, Swirl Insulated Travel Tumbler – 24 oz.

 

We use the Optic Yellow shirts we ordered as Uniform Shirts for our Volunteers. They make our volunteers visible, recognizable and help keep them safe during events. We have gotten lots of compliments on the shirts.

The magnet calendars were given to church members at the Christmas Eve service. Many members commented on how they now have the dates for all the special events during the year.

We use the NC Sheriff Badges to show who paid admission to our museum. People love them so much though that they want to take them home as a souvenir.

We were invited to a career fair for 8th graders. As we didn’t want to give something that no one would like – we didn’t want to spend a LOT of money – for the return of this money spent was really WAY down the road and very minimal. (That’s the business portion of it!) We wanted something COOL to attract the 8th graders to our area! Make an impression that was “COOL” on the 8th graders! Nowadays, who doesn’t LOVE ear buds??? It was a GREAT product!

The City of Harrisonburg hosted a “Sign the Beam” ceremony. Employees and members of the community were invited to sign a beam during the construction of the new City Hall. After signing with a marker, participants were given an ink pen that said: I Signed the Beam in 2015, Harrisonburg City Hall.

The USB were used as giveaways for our youth program participants. They were used to store sample resumes, job applications, and cover letters during a recent job readiness workshop.

The Carrot

Increase participation, improve registration rates and maybe even generate additional revenue. If you’re looking for that ‘carrot,’ look for promotional products.

 

Marathon, TX is a small community located in West Texas and we have the privilege of being under a Class 1 Dark Sky and with that in mind we sought to 4imprint to fulfill the need to of creating some great products in order to create some buzz. And they did just that, the Caps did just that.

We used the pizza cutter for a variety of reasons: to boost client morale during tax season, as well as to thank them for working with us, we like to send them a little “goodie” in the mail in the month of February. We will use the additional pieces for marketing purposes at prospect and business partner events. Great way to get our name out there and keep it in view, since we anticipate our clients/business partners using the pizza cutter on a regular basis!

We do classes for essential oils where people get to make household products. These bags are perfect for them to take their goods home with them.

We used the Challenger Mug 14 oz. stuffed with goodies and information about our company. As we have an initial sales meeting we are able to hand a couple to key people. I believe that just having the cup sitting on the owners desk kept our company’s name in front of the customer. We were able to have a follow up meeting and we now have a signed contract for providing Network Monitoring and Support.

We used the marketing gum as our business/postcard information about our company to stand out from our competitors. Everyone did a double take and loved the product. Our goal was to have them do a double take and read about our services.

We ordered this monkey in a gold t-shirt to give away to children who found one of the ‘Golden Tickets’ we hid throughout the Library as part of our 50th Anniversary celebration. The kids were excited not only to find a ‘Golden Ticket’ – but to exchange it for something cute to take home.

We purchase the 2” x 6” Pinked Ribbons as a motivational tool for when Clients complete one of our Boot Camp programs. Little did we know that they would also be boosting our brand and get people talking about their great experience with our firm. We started getting calls from so many new prospective Clients, that we now also use them as “passes” for special events we have. Talk about getting bang for your buck!

Our SPEDTex service is provided state-wide in Texas and is free of charge. This is a brand new service and we needed to get the word out to parents of students with disabilities. Our magnet promotion has allowed us to reach many parents across this state and keeps our information in front of them on a daily basis.

Rosemary with SPEDTex, # 28804-Q, Business Card Magnet – 20 mil

 

Students are asked to take a Post-test when they reach the required amount of attendance hours in our program. Testing is voluntary, but to show improvement for our performance based funding is needed. The bags are given as a “Thank you” for testing. We call it, “pay It Forward with a Posttest”! We are hoping the bags will be another incentive to get students to take the test. It is too soon to tell if it has worked.

The 2015 calendar strips were given to clients with their holiday gifts in hopes to have them place the strips at their desks to keep our company in mind for continued use.

Booth Buzz

Whether it’s a nonprofit, school store or fundraising, if you need money for the mission, promotional products work.

 

I bought hoodies to identify volunteers at an academic conference. The volunteers wore the hoodies over their regular clothes when they were working; it was so much better than tshirts! The volunteers loved them.

I am the creator of VT’s Original Pregnancy & Baby Expo that is an annual event and the bags are perfect for parents who only have one hand to hold onto papers and other goodys.

We host an annual seminar and usually print hard-copy manuals for use by attendees. This year, we’ve loaded our manual and other conference materials on this flash drive. It saves printing and binding costs, and our attendees appreciate the convenience of the flash drive rather than the bulky manual.

Business/construction-focused trade show. We wanted an item that appealed to this crowd with something they’d walk away actually using and/or talking about. These items were handy enough to give out and very cost effective.

In student housing, the Housing Fairs are extremely important as communities prepare to lease up for fall. The display that a community has, often dictates your traffic flow, and we were very pleased to display our awesome tablecloth with all of our promotional items. The students had a great day, achieved over 70 inquiry cards and we are now leading the preleased market in our city! Yay 4-Imprint! Thank you!

We were looking for a giveaway for our booth that was portable and practical and would be used frequently. And we didn’t have much of a budget. The lip balm was perfect! Who doesn’t need lip balm regardless of the climate! We got lots of visitors who heard on the floor what the giveaway was.

I sponsored the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education’s 30th Annual conference. The tote bags were an amazing promotion and my orange bags lit up the conference.

Saying Thank You

Whether it’s for saying thank you to volunteers, to applaud hard workers for a job well done or for recognizing an anniversary, here are some creative ways.

 

We have quarterly employee and supervisor award ceremonies. One of the gifts that are given to the nominees are hats. These hats were perfect and definitely would be used daily by our staff.

Lanita with WMATA, # 107257, Price Buster Sandwich Cap

 

We have some amazing sponsors for our event, as well as some individuals who volunteer a great deal of time. It was our way to say thank you.

Students come to a board meeting to recite the pledge and after their presentation each board member gives the students a gift – the backpack

The tote was used at our annual water festival. We gave them to fourth grade teachers, stuffed with books, lessons, and curriculum ideas related to water resources, to use in their classrooms.

The tumblers were used as incentives to return a survey. The first 100 respondents received a tumbler. They were also used as gifts to the Board of Health for overseeing our program. The loved them!

I ordered 150 of these bottles for a Christmas give-away and thank you gift for my Reflexology clients. They are loving them! This is a wonderful product to encourage drinking more water everyday. It is a solid, sturdy glass water bottle that can survive North Dakota temperature extremes.

I have to recruit volunteers from a pool of very busy people to assist with new hire training. I have always been able to find very good items to use as thank you gifts at the end of each year. My volunteers really appreciate the gifts and they help to influence others to assist as well.

This item was small token of appreciation given to all of our employees in our department. With all of budget cuts recognition seems to be the first thing cut and causes the most damage to employee moral. These power banks were really appreciated.

We purchased water bottles for our Robotics team. The children are to use them when we go to competitions. This will allow our team to not to purchase water or other drinks that are high priced at the competitions we attend. We told them their gift comes with free water from every tap or water fountain in the country.

We believe that giving employees items that they want to and are proud to wear reinforces team spirit and motivation. There’s no better PR than employees who reinforce the brand by choosing to identify where they work in the context of their private lives.

In our office, security is very important and we have to constantly remind employees to lock their computers and put away sensitive information. We used the headphone/charger set to leave on employee’s desks that had locked their computers if they were away from their stations. Worked great and the positive reinforcement helped motivate the few holdouts because they wanted the gift too!

We have a sales conference two times a year, with all our reps inside and outside the company. I usually order something to give out with our Logo on it. This product was very well received and it sure to be used (and seen) by others outside our company. It also works really well, everyone is always looking for place to charge either their phone or computer, this way we were all able to sit at our tables and still be charged up.

Kingston of Vermilion is a skilled nursing facility and organized an educational fair for our staff to review policies and procedures.

For a class, the object of the semester was teamwork, and how through teamwork, we could achieve higher than alone. So our instructor gave us the incentive with extra credit to purchase shirts and wear them to exam days. With this, it brought our class closer together, with more willingness to help one another in times of need.
