  1. Promotional Items - Long Term marketing

    Promotional items are the most effective long term marketing tool available. If you are intending your event or your business to be on-going long into the future then you should definitely investing into promotional items.

    Long after a marketing campaign is done and dusted or when your fund raising event has past it is only a physical product that will remain. So make that product a useful and good looking item and you can guarantee yourself years of brand marketing exposure long after the event. How can I be so sure? Well I am 33 years of age and believe it or not I have a few products that I have kept for well over 20 years which had brand names of other companies emblazoned on it. (ie. a promotional product). The types of items I have kept include 3 different custom

  2. Why Measuring ROI On Promotional Items & Marketing in General is Hard

    The hardest thing when embarking on any marketing campaign is knowing that your dollars are effectively spent. This includes everything from advertising on T.V, on the Radio, in the newspaper and of course when handing out corporate gifts and promotional items. To use a technical term Return on Investment or (ROI) for short is extremely hard to guage. For example how can you adequetely attribute to your 10% increase in sales as directly caused by an advertising campaign that you ran for 2 months in a magazine? Or conversely what if that campaign coincided with a 10% decline in sales? Was it because the advertisement turned customers off your product or did the advertising campaign actually help minimize what otherwise would have been a 20% decline?

  4. Promotional Playing Cards

    Promotional Playing Cards

    There is something mystical I find about playing cards. A deck of playing cards is special because it is so very unique. If you think about it a deck of cards can fit a shirt pocket yet the graphics on a deck of cards are so very special and so very recognisable. These simple cards have influenced movies, and comics not to mention their close association with gambling too! A deck of playing cards is simply special. This also explains why our range of promotional playing cards is such a unique promotional merchandise product. We simply do not have any other product that is as mystical as a deck of playing cards.

    Who Invented Playing Cards?

    From my research seemingly no one really knows however many think that it was heavily influenced by China due to the fact that they were the inventors of paper. However, the deck of cards as we know it today is widely thought to have been brought to the west approximately in the year 1370. The humble
