New Promo Items Are Available At Overnight Prints

How promotional items can improve your business

We probably have all received a promo item at least once in our lives. They are tangible objects such as pens, coffee mugs, calendars, magnets, and the list goes on. Then they are customized by prominently placing the company name or brand colors onto the item. Many businesses overlook promo items when they are developing a marketing strategy or advertising campaign. You can establish your name and also keep it front and center in the minds of customers. Promo products are beneficial for the business and the customer, so why not use them? 

Five Reasons to Use Promo Items

1. Promo Items Last

One of the top reasons why promo items work extremely well is their capability to stick around for a long time. Billboards, signage and TV ads all have limits and can only run for a certain amount of time. With promo items that are unique and never die, there are no limits for advertising. They can continue marketing to new potential customers while sticking in the minds of who received it.

The list of promotional items can go on and on. Key chains, T-shirts, stickers and notepads are all examples of promo items. These items can stay around for a very long time because they are useful to customers and can be used in everyday life. When customers can use your item everyday, it means your brand or company can gain long-time exposure.


2. Cost-Efficient Marketing tool

If you haven’t noticed, promo items aren’t extravagant or very large. Instead, they are simple and functional. When you can market your company using a tool that is not only functional but inexpensive, it will always be a win for your company. They are cost-efficient, easy to create with Overnight Prints, and can advertise a business for a very long time. There have been numerous studies stating that companies using promo items see more business than companies that do not.

3. Get Attention

Whether you’re at a trade show or your office, everyone loves the word FREE! So why not pull in potential customers by offering them what they love? When people receive a free item, they tend to remember your company more and are inclined to make a

If your company is participating in an upcoming trade show, you want to make sure you have complimentary pens and T-shirts. Most customers walking around are noting companies and can lose their pen during the process. You want to be the company that has the pen to offer. A completely FREE pen, at that. T-shirts also work very well at trade shows. Potential customers will see people donning them and ask “where did you get that cool shirt?” It will be none other than your company. Gain recognition, customers, and most importantly, revenue. Promo items are attention-grabbing and will steal the show from your competitors.

4. Promote Your Brand Reputation

When you give an item away for free, it tends to leave a lasting impression. Doing a simple and nice gesture really goes a long way and will create a favorable image for your company. Promo items can be used within the company as well. Give a little piece of your company to your hard-working employees. This will make them feel good about working for your company, and again, create a desired image.

5. Opening New Doors

Promotional giveaways can turn into the best opportunity to engage in conversation. Potential customers will take time to listen to a sales pitch because of the nice gesture. Offering a promo item can often lead to customer purchases. You will be increasing your revenue, and customers will be benefiting from your service or product. 

Not all promotional items need to be a giveaway. A custom car door magnet can also be a conversation starter to let potential customers know about your products or services.


In business, it’s all about putting your best foot forward and showcasing your company in the correct light. If you want your business to do well, you have to give your customers what they want and have a professional presentation. Make to sure to take a look at our all new promotional products line as well.
