10 Top Tips on Making Your Promotional Product Order Stress-Free!

Ordering promotional products for the first time can seem daunting, yet it’s actually a very simple process. These top 10 tips will help you navigate your first order, and eliminate hassle and mistakes.

10 Tips on Making Your Promotional Product Order Stress-Free!

1. Be sure to send your logo in the correct format.

When sending your artwork to a vendor, make sure it is in the right format. Your logo must be in a PDF or EPS file instead of a JPEG.

2. Always get a head start when placing your order!

Plan your orders ahead of time to avoid rush charges and added stress. You want to have plenty of time to make sure your product comes out just right!

3. When choosing your product, carefully consider your target customer. 

Be strategic in your selection of promo items. Who is your company trying to reach? Your products should attract the ideal client for your business.

4. Be sure to include your website and/or contact info. 

Promotional products will not be effective if prospective clients don’t know how to reach you. Be sure to include a phone number or website address.

5. Avoid imprinting too much information on a product.

Try not to bombard your clients with too much information. Too many words on an a product will appear cluttered and hard to read.

6. Have a strategic distribution plan. 

“But where should I distribute my products?” Good question. Try golf tournaments, school events, trade shows, parades, charity walks, etc. Sponsoring an event is another great opportunity for product distribution.

7. Stay away from low-quality products.

Spending a bit more money on higher quality items makes a huge difference for your brand. Invest in products that will last in order to maximize exposure to your business.

8. Pay attention to which products work the best!

Try ordering a few different products and take note of the results! Depending on your brand, some items will attract more attention than others.

9. Be aware of additional charges.

When ordering promotional products, there are additional charges beyond the price of the product. For example, tax, shipping and set-up charges will add to the total cost of your order.

10. Don’t order too few or too many items.

Usually, the higher quantity of a single product you order, the better deal you will get. That being said, don’t order so many products that you won’t be able to give them all away. You can always reorder in the future!

6 Ways to Prepare for California’s Big Earthquake

With all the earthquakes rumbling through the golden state this past month, many Californians have been wondering… Is “the big one” coming?  

6 Ways to Prepare for California’s Big Earthquake

  1. Fasten shelves to your walls – this will prevent your furniture from crashing down.
  2. Avoid hanging pictures or glass fixtures in your bedroom – this will help you stay safe if an earthquake happens in the middle of the night.
  3. Store glass items in lower shelves and drawers – this prevents them from crashing down on top of you in an earthquake.
  4. Keep a pair of flip-flops underneath your bed – in case you have to evacuate your room at night, this will protect your feet from broken glass.
  5. Identify safe places before the earthquake strikes – certain structures, such as sturdy tables, can be used as shelter during an earthquake. It is important to identify these beforehand, so you can think fast when an earthquake hits.
  6. Make sure you have flashlights and batteries ready – earthquakes often cause power outages. Our emergency night light is a great option in case of a black-out. This is also a great branded giveaway to help your employees and clients stay prepared as well.

Athleisure: A New World Of Fashion

In the modern workplace, fashion has shifted dramatically from formal attire to more functional, comfortable outfits. This casual and relaxed clothing style is known as athleisure, and it’s growing at an exponential rate. In fact, athleisure is expected to reach $83 billion in the U.S. alone by the year 2020.

The beauty of athleisure is it can be either dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. The same pair of sweat pants or leggings can be paired with heels and jewelry for the office, but can also function as exercise attire or even pajamas!

Especially considering the growing number of people who work from home, more individuals are resorting to casual clothing for their day-to-day life and activities. That’s where athleisure comes in…

This 1/4-Zip Pullover is a perfect example of a great athleisure option. Dress it up with a pair of slacks, or wear it to the gym with a pair of sweat pants or athletic shorts!

These Ladies’ Sport-Wick Fleece Pants are another versatile athleisure choice. Add accessories and a stylish blazer for an office meeting or pair it with a tee-shirt for more casual, around-the-house wear!

Because athleisure is becoming so popular in the workplace, it’s a great branded option for company apparel. Customize any of these pieces with your logo for a comfortable and sleek uniform that employees will love to wear… in the office and at home!

Promotional Products Hack: How to Save Thousands by Ordering Overseas

Trying to save money on your promotional products? One way to significantly reduce the cost of your order is to let us ship your products from overseas!

The only catch is this: overseas shipping means it will take longer for your order to arrive. Obviously, for rush orders, overseas shipping is not a realistic option. However, when you know far in advance that you will need promotional products in the future, overseas shipping can be a lifesaver!

Example: Let’s say you order 500 embroidered hats 4 times throughout the year, totaling 2,000 hats.

If you order the hats domestically each hat will cost approximately $5, totaling $10,000.

But, if we create custom hats for you overseas, each hat will cost approximately $3, for a total of $6,000.

In this example, the total savings would be approximately $4,000!

Plus, by letting us create your order overseas, your hats can be completely customized, with all the bells and whistles.

If you choose to order the hats all at once, we can also store them for you, and ship them to you as needed. This way you still get the low price from ordering overseas, without the hassle of having to store a large quantity of hats in one location.

Contact us for a free consultation on we can help you save big by creating your custom order overseas.

How the Plastic Straw Ban in California Will Affect Your Business

A recent bill approved by California lawmakers proposes a ban on plastic straws – specifically, this legislation would prohibit full-service, dine-in restaurants from offering plastic straws to customers unless specifically requested.

Assuming the bill is signed into law, California will be the first state to enforce restrictions on plastic straw usage. Many environmentalists expect other states and nations to follow suit in the near future.

This new legislation is actually a great opportunity for restaurants to invest in branded, reusable straws. Not only will this ensure your business is compliant, it furthers your brand exposure!

There are several options when it comes to branded straws. For instance, our candy stripe straw is super fun and very affordable.

If your business is not a restaurant, investing in branded tumblers with plastic straws will help your clients enjoy their beverages without having to ask for plastic straws.
