Try These Alternative Promotional Products

Tired of handing out the same pens and coffee mugs with your logo on it? Try some of these branded items that are sure to find their way around town and get people talking. (Disclaimer: Links are for illustrative purposes only and have not been vetted by us for quality.)

  • Reusable straws: Some areas of the country are banning plastic straws, and there is nothing worse than having your paper straw disintegrate before you finish your beverage. Offer a solution with a logoed, collapsible, reusable straw that can fit in a pocket or a purse or hang on a keychain. This will be a hit in parts of CA, NY, HI, WA, FL, and NJ.

  • Insulated wine bag: Your logo will quickly find its way to parties, BBQs, and picnics and in front of your clients’ friends and family.  

  • Reusable shopping bags: As with straws, if you are in an area that has banned single-use plastic bags, you know the value of high-quality reusable shopping bags that go with you everywhere and are envied by all. Order ones that are structured, heavy canvas, insulated, or have zippered tops.

P.S. Avoid the cheap crap, and spend money on quality products. Whenever possible, use a brand your clients would recognize. The higher the quality, the more likely they will use it again and again, promoting your logo around town.
