When it comes to planning an event that really stands out, in addition to custom medals, you might also want to consider other promotional items to impress your participants.
The most effective promotional products (aka "swag") can be used again and again. Some of the best options may not cost a lot, but the long-term effects will generate a better return on your investment.
Promotional products have the ability to feature custom designs, and with such a wide range of options, promo products can be tailored to work with almost any budget. Some of the most impactful promotional products are:
- Travel Mugs / Tumblers
- Backpacks / tote bags / drawstring bags
- Water Bottles
- Bottle Openers
- Hand Sanitizer
- Drink Koozies
- USB Drives
Choosing Promotional Products for Your Event
With so many options to choose from, how do you pick which ones are the best for your event? Start by identifying the type of event you’re hosting, and then select the items that best fit the theme. For example:
- If you're giving out a lot of items, a custom backpack or tote bag would be handy for your attendees.
- If you’re using name tags, a custom lanyard will work great.
- Are you offering downloadable material? Provide your guests with a unique USB drive preloaded with content.
- Will you have cold, canned, or bottled beverages available? A koozie or even a bottle opener could be a neat touch.
- Hosting an outdoor event during the warmer months? Give your guests water bottles they can reuse, which is more environmentally friendly.
- Hats are always a great choice to promote athletic events or any activities that will be outdoors.
- If you provide coffee and tea, consider giving your participants a custom ceramic mug or travel mug they can use and take home to remember your event.
