Choosing a New Advertising Medium

Sketch of hanging light bulbs, with one turned on.We’ve all seen the popular company handouts: mugs, clocks, pens, lanyards, t-shirts, etc. etc. It gets a little repetitive don’t you think? How do you make your logo items stand out from the crowd? Let’s take a look outside the box and see what kinds of options there are. You’ll be surprised at what you can put your logo on. Whether you are looking for employee gift ideas or what to hand out at your next tradeshow, you can find useful items that make sure your company gets noticed.

Some Ideas to Get You Started

Keep a candy jar on the reception desk with customized candies like chocolates or mints. You can put your logo on the wrapper and on the candy itself!

Have the employees been on a health kick? A lot of coworkers start weight loss challenges together. Take notice and give them a boost with a juicer or blender that sports the company name. Every time they make a healthier meal, they’ll remember your company helped them achieve their goals. When employees achieve personal goals, they contribute to a happier working environment.

If you’re thinking of giving employees some recognition for their hard work, Elevate Promo can help with that, too. You can have custom trophies or plaques engraved. Choose from glass, crystal, marble and more. Or you can go smaller with pins and ribbons. Start a competition to achieve office goals and offer a grand prize like a theater style popcorn maker.

There are always publicity events coming up. Make your booth popular with business card style mints, stress balls and crazy putty. Are you looking for something more professional? Think of pocket size journals with faux leather binding and personal notebooks that fit a sticky pad and bookmarking arrows.

Sports games are great places to advertise. It costs a lot to get your logo in those stadiums and courts though. How about giving out sports items to your employees? Every time they go to the game they’ll take along their stadium seat or six-pack cooler with the company logo on it. Think of stadium blankets for hockey games, poker chips for the guys’ night in, and umbrellas for the outdoor stadiums.

Your gifts and handouts don’t have to follow the norm. Break free and be unique! With all the options available, advertising your logo will be fun instead of just another to-do on your list. You can choose items that reflect your company’s motto or inspire your employees to work as a team. There are almost endless possibilities. Go ahead and try something new.
