Promotional Products With No Minimums

 

Promotional Water BottlesWe have a great announcement to make about some of our promotional items. We now are able to offer over 1000 promotional products with NO MINIMUMS! That means we can offer custom printed promos with your business logo with a minimum of only 1 piece. This is great if you are looking for items that are just meant to be an award or recognition item for someone.

These low minimums are also great for small businesses who may only need 20 to 30 promotional items for an event or for their top clients. It is important to point out that the initial setup charge of $55 for these items still applies with repeat setup charges being $25. However, if you only need a few items for an event, this option still proves to save you money.

Some of the available products with no minimums includes bags, pens, journals, notepads, stress relievers, portfolios, desk accessories, premium items, and much more. And the list goes on and on. The best thing to do is to just give us a call at 1-800-773-9472 and let us know your budget and how many pieces you want. Or if you already have an idea of what item you want, just tell us and we will let you know if that item is available with a low minimum.

We are excited to be able to offer this, particularly for our small businesses. This is a great opportunity to purchase promos which historically have had minimums too high for most small businesses. So go ahead and promote your business with promotional items and get that recognition you deserve!

How Many GB Can Your Brain Hold?

 

How many GB can the brain hold?
How many gigabytes can your brain hold? This is a frequently asked question along with, “How much RAM does your brain have?” or “If your brain had an operating system like a computer, what would it be?” and other similar questions. This obviously can’t be accurately measured, although, many scientists have given it the old college try. It has been estimated anywhere between 100 GB to several TB. The human brain is an amazing organ, and I really believe that it is infinite, although I often feel like my brain is overloaded. One thing that I do know for sure is that some brains got the short end of the stick. I know a few people that I would classify as 2 megabyters while others are definitely in the terabyte range.

Brains can store a lot of information, but in our day to day life, we need a little help in passing information along or transferring from computer to computer. I often have to bring a little work home and burn the midnight oil a bit and when I do, I transfer files I am working on to a USB Flash Drive and take them with me. Thumb drives most commonly come in 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB sizes. However, drives less than 2 GB are becoming more rare. That’s because the demand for larger memory drives is higher and the memory pricing is becoming lower and lower. If the difference in a 2 GB drive and a 4 GB flash drive is only $0.50 – $0.75, wouldn’t it make sense to just upgrade to the larger size? By doing this, those who receive the drives would be more likely to keep and use them, thus marketing for your company more. Not only can we put your logo on flash drives as giveaways, but we can also pre-load data on them for you.

There are many uses for flash drives, and below I have listed just a few ideas on how to use USB flash drives:

  1. Put all of your company manuals and forms on a flash drive and give out to all of your employees.
  2. Include your catalog and website shortcut on the flash drives and give out to potential clients.
  3. Product or company videos. Research has shown that a personalized videoe sales pitch is like money in the bank. So make a simple video of yourself pitching your offer to a potential client, put it on a flash drive and send it to them. They can take your pitch on their terms and it will be better received than a cold call.
  4. Include a set of videos of client testimonials.
  5. For resorts, do a video tour of your property and amenities.
  6. PowerPoint presentations of your products and services.
  7. Include an automatic opening of your website when the drive is plugged in. This is a guaranteed visit to your website which will be a non-invasive introduction to your company.
  8. Videos of product demonstrations and real life uses for your products.
  9. Bands can sell their mp3 songs pre-loaded on USB flash drives rather than a CD.
  10. Pre-load with security applications which can allow network access or unlocking of a computer and give to employees.
  11. Include podcasts about your company or products.

Perfect Imprints lots of options for USB Flash Drives and most that we sell are Tier 1 memory, which is the best you can get. We don’t sell the cheap memory that only works for a few months. Our USB drives have a lifetime warranty which is passed to each recipient. So that means if you give the thumb drives out to customers and they stop working, they have a toll free phone number they can call and get a replacement. That’s a deal that’s hard to beat. Most of our 2 GB flash drives start around $7.00 for 50 quantity and go up from there as memory increases and down in price as quantity increases.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Other Day I Was Drinking and Driving

 

Whenever you want to put out a product that has your business name on it, you should always think it through thoroughly. You should always think about how your customers and potential customers will view them. You have to put aside your knowledge of your specific industry jargon and think like a customer. In a way you have to dumb down your thinking, because in most cases, your customers don’t know nearly as much about what you are selling or offering as you do. Design is one of the most important factors for any marketing piece. It doesn’t matter if you are thinking about business cards, brochures, banners, promotional products, newspaper ads, posters, or a new logo design, you should always have a layout that is both visually appealing AND effective. Both must be present for it to work. Your small investment in graphic design will pay off big dividends over a poorly designed ad.
Design of Pepsi Max Bottle
Now, this isn’t necessarily graphic design, but it is a form of design. I needed a little pick-me-up a few days ago, so I stopped at a convenient store and bought a Pepsi Max. They have a fair amount of caffeine in them, and that is just what I needed on that particular evening. So at first I didn’t really think anything about it until I pull into my kids school and I’m taking a drink and notice that people are staring at me. Then it dawns on me that this bottle looks just like a beer. So there are now several of my kids parents who now think that I go around drinking and driving. As I thought more about this scenario, I started thinking about how often I pass by police officers, Sheriff deputies, and State Troopers. What are the chances that they mistake this bottle as a beer? Drinking from that bottle just made me a bit self-conscious while driving. At home or work, it wouldn’t be a big deal.

The above story is just a real life example of how you have to think about your design. In this case, it was the design of a bottle. In the case of most day-to-day business applications, it would deal with graphic design. Make sure you have professional designs on all of your business literature and giveaways. Your business image is extremely important for the success of your business and that is one area that you should not be cheap.
