16 corporate promotional gifts
Corporate promotional gifts are very useful for encouraging morale in the workplace. They are small tokens employers can use as incentives for their staff for any occasion.
Corporate promotional items can be purchased in a few different ways. Many times, larger corporations provide a certain amount of items to each market for distribution by the regional manager or director. These can be any number of different things which usually sport the company logo. They are purchased in bulk at a very low price per unit with regard to what units in a smaller purchase would run. Most smaller companies (even those which serve several markets) do not have the financial means to purchase corporate promotional gifts in large quantities. The unfortunate thing about these gifts is that there is little individuality from item to item and they are not always of the highest quality. Items which fall into this category are lanyards, pens, note pads, magnets, key chains, t-shirts and desk organizers.
Corporations which are looking to provide gifts to employees and other businesses may choose to contract with companies which wholesale promotional gift items. This is a normal thing for companies which may not be large enough for publicly held stock. What is good about these types of companies is that they rarely have enough employees or enough need to require massive quantities of corporate promotional gifts, which leads to higher-end items with reduced frequency of giving. These items can be denim or collared shirts with the company logo, jackets or windbreakers with an embroidered logo, desk sets, plaques, higher end pen and pencil sets and stationery.
Companies looking for the right corporate promotional gifts will want to do extensive research on items and prices per unit and quality provided by each company. It is very important to find items which reflect well upon the company they will be representing, especially if the company will be giving these items to other companies as advertising items. Quality is extremely important for that very reason. Never skimp if it can be avoided.
It is wise to do some homework on corporate promotional gifts in order to find the best pricing and the best items for your promotional needs. Always plan on meeting with suppliers and ask as many questions as possible when you need corporate promotional gifts.
