Long Live the Promos

[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="7496" img_size="medium" qode_css_animation=""][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text]Here's a photo of that exact custom stainless steel tumbler referenced above which I have personally used every day for well over 2 years. This item looks tired and worn out. It takes serious abuse every day. For starters, the cup holder in my truck is a very tight fit around the tumbler, which has caused most of the scratches. Additionally, a habit of mine is to tap on the tumbler with my ring finger, a habit stemmed from excess energy (possibly a mild ADD), causing some of the wear on the colored enamel. It's been dropped multiple times. When it's empty, it sits in my oversized lunch bag along with glass containers which previously held my oversized lunch. This causes the glass containers and the tumbler to bang together causing additional scratches. While it may look bad, I think I'll just keep it until something renders it unusable. I've thought many times that I should replace it. But then I think, "Why should I replace it if it works?" While the value is not the same, it's like having a car that runs really well but has some dings and scratches on the outside. Why get rid of something that works, and is paid for?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation="" row_type="row" use_row_as_full_screen_section="no" type="full_width" angled_section="no" text_align="left" background_image_as_pattern="without_pattern"][vc_column][vc_column_text]According to a recent study by the Promotional Products Association International, 81% of people keep promotional products for more than a year. Odds are the 19% that chose not to keep their items for more than a year were given either a disposable product, consumable item, or a low-quality promotional product. For this particle article, I'll be focusing on higher quality items, which have the incredible ability to stick around for many years to continue to advertise for your company.

The Need For Education

Sometimes I have comical discussions with prospects who don't yet understand the power of promotional products. That means they need more education about this incredibly effective advertising medium.

The Science Behind Promotional ProductsYou love the smell of a good cup of joe in the morning. In an early morning haze, when you're still getting your head together, strong coffee provides a needed pick-me-up. As you gaze at that cup of brew, what is staring back at you, apart from the steam of the hot beverage? Is it the brand logo of a well-known coffee chain, the artistic design of a china set, or a memento of a recent trade show that promotes an up-and-coming brand? If you are like 53 percent of Americans, you own drinkware with a logo on it. Chances are, you remember that company's name, and not just because you see it on your early morning trips to the kitchen for cafe au lait. Studies show that out of the five senses, scent makes the most powerful impact on the brain. So while your eyes may see the logo, smelling the coffee makes that corporate brand all the more unforgettable.

Top 5 Corporate Christmas GiftsIt's time to be thinking about corporate Christmas gifts for your employees and top clients. Whether you give out gifts specifically for Christmas or as "end of the year" gifts, both employees and clients appreciate them...especially if they are useful gifts.

There are many high quality and extremely useful items you can get decorated with your company logo that your recipients will LOVE! If you think about popular retail gifts that consumers are buying, you can typically find the same or a very similar promotional option that allows your logo to be printed on the products. Below are our favorite corporate Christmas gifts.

Stainless Steel Tumblers are great Corporate Christmas GiftsStainless Steel Tumblers Why have these items been so hot? Because they work and they work well. Most of the double wall stainless steel tumblers are the same or better quality than the beloved Yeti branded tumblers. However, at less than half the cost, you can have your company logo branded on the tumblers. Choose from the larger 30 oz. sizes, which are perfect for ice water, or the smaller 20 oz sizes, which are perfect for coffee. These ultra-functional tumblers will keep ice for over 24 hours and keep coffee hot for 5-6 hours! No wonder everyone loves them!

Christmas Gifts that are not CommercializedChristmas has certainly become commercialized over the last several decades. Retails stores begin stocking Christmas items as early as August to get a jump on their competitors. Before items for the Fall season are stocked on the shelves, the Christmas creep shows face. You can easily get bogged down in the busyness of Christmas shopping, holiday parties, Christmas plays and performances, and multiple family visits OR you can actually enjoy the season by relaxing and spending time with friends and family. In the classic Christmas movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Charlie Brown says, "...I won't let all this commercialism ruin my Christmas." Following the same Christmas spirit that Charlie Brown had, I'd like to
