Lollipops are the most popular type of candy the world over. People of all ages love them and would not pass up the chance to have one. Companies have successfully used lollipops as a promotional giveaway in corporate events like job fairs, trade shows and business conferences. They have generated a lot of awareness for their brands through these quaint confections.
If you plan on using personalised lollipops in your next business conference then you have a lot of things to consider to be sure that these customised candies will be able to fulfil their purpose.
Packaging – You need to consider the design of the packaging as this would be the focal point of your item. People who see your item should be able to identify your company through the printing on the wrapper.
Details – Think about how you want to present your printed lollipops to the public. You have the freedom to pick the sizes, colours, and flavours of your custom-branded lollipops as well as the container they will come in. Your branded lollipops can come in canisters, jars, bowls, ice buckets, mugs or more.
Supplier – If you do not have a regular supplier for your promotional items yet, then it is about time you look for one you can work with for the long haul. Having a regular supplier will be more economical for companies in the long run. If you will maintain a partner to supply your promo items, you might be entitled to more discounts and perks as you place your orders on a fairly regular basis.
Branding – Make sure that the artwork you will use for your promo item is accurate and clear enough to be printed on the packaging of your lollipops as well as their containers. Have your supplier run a few samples of your brand in different sizes and settings before picking a final design.
Time-frame – Make sure you place your orders with ample time before the conference or trade show.
Finalising Your Order
When transacting with your supplier, make sure that you have conveyed all your requirements from the details of the custom-printed item, to the volume and the schedule of delivery. Drawing up a contract might be a good idea to ensure that both you and your supplier are protected in case issues come up. Stay in constant touch with your supplier from the time you place your order to the time they are delivered to you.
