Promotional gifts are a powerful marketing tool that can raise and enhance brand awareness, giving added visibility to a promotional campaign or a physical item to take away from conferences or exhibitions. The success of promotional gifts owes much to their branding ability, giving businesses a practical and attractive platform on which to display their logo and credentials. It is this personalisation of promotional gifts that will transform them from humble items into a viable marketing platform.
So what are the options that are available to you if you want to show off your brand in style with personalised promotional gifts?
There are a number of branding options that are available that will be suitable for any brand specifications. Whether you are looking to give off an image of refinement and luxury or you want to stick as closely as possible to your brand guidelines.
Here is a rundown of the main branding procedures so that you can make sure your personalised promotional gifts meet your exact requirements.
This is the ultimate option for the most refined and luxurious of brand images. Engraving will offer your promotional gifts an air of distinction and are best suited to higher-end silver gifts such as business card holders and clocks.
There are of course limitations to the products that it is possible to personalise with engraving techniques, but if you are looking to give your brand a look and feel of quality through using subtly personalised promotional gifts then engraving will be the ideal process for your requirements.
Printing and Embroidery
If getting your promotional gifts on-brand is an essential part of your strategy, with your gifts matching your colour scheme, using printing and embroidery will be the best strategy for you. With pantone matches available on many products it is easier than ever to get your exact company colours printed or stitched onto your promotional gifts, giving you a professional and consistent appearance.
A huge number of promotional gifts can be personalised through printing, with some items of promotional clothing being more suited to embroidery.
Bespoke Promotional Gifts
For those companies who want a one of a kind, completely brand consistent promotional gift, the bespoke option is the ideal choice. Many promotional gifts such as flash drives and corporate jewellery can be personalised in shape, size and design to meet the exact requirements of the customer, giving you complete control over the appearance over your branded item.
If you know roughly what you are looking to achieve from your promotional campaign then you will be able to narrow down your choices for the type of personalisation you will need on your promotional gifts. Evaluate what you want to achieve from your campaign and then find the right form of personalisation that meets your brand requirements.
