Data Protection

Identity theft has been on the rise the last few years, and thieves are very creative about how they get your information.  Some now have devices that can read your credit card information by merely passing close by your wallet.  You may be standing in line somewhere, strolling along, shopping, having a cup of coffee, who knows?  The next moment you have fraudulent charges on your credit card, because your information got swiped and you have to fight to get your money back.

An inexpensive promotional giveaway are these sleeves that are made in two sizes, one for credit cards and one for passports that help protect against RFID digital pickpockets.  They have a great imprint area to advertise your company and services and it is an item that every single person can use.

This is great for any security-type promotion, safety program, banks, credit unions or any company that wants to show they care about their customer's safety/identity.

Full Color Mousepads

If you are sitting at a desk, chances are that you are still using a mouse, which means, you are using a mouse pad.  If you gave your clients a beautiful, full color mouse pad with important information about your products and services on it, chances are that they will use your mouse pad for at least a year or two.  What better way to stay on their mind than to have a bright, beautiful mouse pad laying on their desk right in front of them?

Here are some examples of mouse pads that we have done for our clients.  We are so impressed with the quality of our vendor that we are working on one of our own to hand out soon!

The True and Trusted PEN

PPAI (Promotional Products Association International) always has some great statistics and the most recent issue of their magazine included some interesting statistics about pens.  We often wonder whether or not that same old promotion is an effective one, after all, it can be boring handing out the same thing over and over again....but if it works, it works.  Here are some of the statistics that can help you decide whether or not to do that next pen promotion.

  • 73% of people surveyed stated that they ALWAYS carry a writing instrument with them.
  • Nearly 92% of car owners keep one or two pens in their car.
  • 83% of people surveyed are more likely to keep a promotional pen if it is a ballpoint.
  • 50% of people surveyed like free promotional pens and always pick up a promotional pen when given away.

We all know how pens can travel around from person to person through your office, and then walk out the door.  Who knows where it will go next, who will see your logo in their hand.  Because pens have the tendency to change ownership, it is a very effective promotional product for reaching more than just your immediately intended audience.

Promotional Products on your Office Supply Budget

Don't have any money left in your promotional products budget, but you need something to hand out?  Why not charge it to your office supply budget?  Pens, note pads, sticky notes and much more can be used as office supplies and handouts to customers.  More often than not, sticky notes are cheaper with imprinted with your logo than you would pay for them at your local office supply store.  Pens are a very effective marketing product, since it tends to "walk away" and go from person to person, so why not have pens with your logo imprinted go all over your office an beyond?

These 3x3, 50 page sticky notes with a full color imprint are only .39 cents each.
