Promotional Calendars: 7 Stats You Didn’t Know

You know the basics about promotional calendars. They keep your logo around for months on end, they’re perpetually useful, they’re offered in all kinds of sizes, styles, and designs, and so forth.

But did you know that calendars are the longest-lasting promotional items around? Or that they’re most popular with older consumers?

Here’s a tip for you: Don’t wait until December to get in your calendar orders. Get started now so they’ll be ready to go long before 2015 rolls around. This way, you’ll have the best shot at securing your customers’ wall or desk space.



Custom Paperweights Make A Useful Business Gift

When you want to say thanks to business associates, give them custom paperweights. They’re practical and professional for the office, and they’re also an attractive way to spotlight your logo.

Our client, Alzheimer’s Association, the nonprofit organization dedicated to Alzheimer care, support and research, used logo paperweights from ePromos to show appreciation to board members who had completed their tenure.

The paperweights were distributed at the association’s national board meeting earlier this fall, and they quickly generated a buzz. These are often a great idea to combine with custom notepads as a complete office business gift.

“Recipients commented on the professionalism of the paperweights, which included the Alzheimer’s Association logo, and said they are a great gift to receive when traveling as they are small and easily fit in luggage,” says Scott Gardner, Vice President of Chapter Relations at the Alzheimer’s Association.

The logo paperweights are a token of gratitude for board members, and a lasting reminder of the Alzheimer Association.

Promo know-how tip:

Not all promotional paperweights are designed the same. Some are elegant enough to serve as awards, others are novelty items, and some are multi-functional. Talk to our creative Promotions Specialists about how to use promotional paperweights for your next business gift. 


Custom Pint Glasses: A Gift For Every Occasion

Don’t think custom pint glasses are only for restaurants and bars: they also make lovely corporate gifts suitable for any business to give clients, vendors or employees.

Our client, VentureDNA, LLC, a company that develops mobile products and provides consulting services, is using branded pint glasses to connect with customers and clients.

“You always need a good glass,” says Stewart Dixon, a managing partner for VentureDNA, “and people can fill them with whatever refreshment they want.”

The company keeps a stash of these logo pint glasses on hand for when client meetings pop up, and it’s also using the glasses with an eye towards the holidays.

“Our strategy is to give some to customers who have been loyal to us over the years, and we’ll also give some out during the holidays,” he says.

With a little consideration towards packaging (the branded pint glasses will be placed in gift boxes filled with tissue paper), VentureDNA has an attractive, functional gift recipients can use every day, keeping the firm’s name always top of mind.

Promo know-how tip:

Make sure the custom imprint on your logo glassware is clearly readable and stands out. If you are worried you are worried about your clients accidentally breaking their glassware, you could go with logo imprinted stadium cups instead.
