Promotional Bags – What Makes Them Such Excellent Corporate Promotional Merchandise?
The phrase Corporate bags refers to a wide range of corporate gifts that include promotional conference bags, promotional laptop bags, promotional drawstring bags and lots of other types of bags. They make great promotional products because they are an inexpensive yet extremely effective way of getting your message or logo out onto the streets where it can be seen. The choice of bags is vast however as with most promotional items your final choice will in all probability be limited by how much you can spend per piece. However with a price bracket that begins with promotional drawstring bags at under$1.00 it’s not too difficult even for the smallest of budgets.
The period of time you have prior to the event date has a vital impact upon how far your budget can go.
Let’s say for example you need some promotional items or business gifts for a conference in three months’ time. If you have decided that the best giveaways would be promotional conference bags then you have enough time for getting them manufactured in the Far East. This pre planning could save you as much as 50% of the cost of an off the shelf option and with promotional bags that can add up to a good deal of money. Another big advantage to having a long lead-time is the ability to select bespoke conference bags that can be made using fabrics that match your company colours. Additional features such as webbed pockets to hold promotional bottled water or internal promotional laptop bags that may be divided off from the main section of the bag can also easily be built-in.
Here are a few different sorts of promotional bags for you to consider for your next event.
Promotional Laptop bags
Promotional laptop bags can be purchased off the shelf at very reasonable prices. The design of these bags often incorporates a pocket with a flap for branding either by silk screen printing or embroidery. Other of laptop bags would usually include a shoulder strap and a padded pocket to protect your computer.
Promotional drawstring bags
Promotional drawstring bags are certainly the most cost effective of all promotional bags and can make excellent corporate gifts. They are extremely popular particularly with school kids. There are literally hundreds of colour options offered and you can if, preferred, have two different colours on both sides. The big panels offer a first-rate advertising opportunity and for just a few more pennies more you can find drawstring bags that also include a zipped pocket.
Promotional Conference Bags
Promotional conference bags are perfect giveaways because they are extremely practical. Many firms use them as a way of distributing the conference paperwork at the reception point when the attendees sign in on the first day. If you have the time then a bespoke conference bag can be specifically designed to take for example leather conference folders or any other sort of corporate gifts or promotional merchandise that you wanted to include.
Promotional backpacks are also extremely popular corporate gifts. They are almost never disposed of particularly if they are well manufactured and look cool. The majority of people will use them to carry various bits and bobs for a day trip or to take to the gym. So as long as they are a decent size and they have lots of storage compartments for smelly trainers and socks then they work very well as promotional products.
Promotional Bags go the distance
Unlike the more regular giveaways for example promotional clothing, promotional bags will last a good deal longer than say a printed T-shirt or perhaps an embroidered polo shirt. This means that your promotional merchandise budget will almost certainly benefit because based on a view per penny basis a product that’s around for years will give you a much better return on your initial investment.
Whatever promotional gifts you do decide to give away it’s vital that they’re as good as you can possibly afford. It’s far better to give away 500 really good corporate gifts than 1,000 really low quality things. Think what you would do if you were given a cheap and nasty printed T-shirt as a promotional gift. You may wear it at the event where you received it however after that it will almost certainly be used to clean the car or mop up some spilt milk etc. Is that where you want to see your promotional clothing end up? I very much doubt it.
