Promotional products range from the incredibly useful such as phone charging cords and phone battery packs (called power banks) to the slightly more "fun" side of life including smiley face emoticon stress balls and cool looking unique pens. Going with functional items does not need to be expensive - indeed our 3m postit notes are as low as $.37 each and honestly even with all the computers and tablet devices in the world, once in a while you still need a decent sticky note to scribble down that important information! No one will throw them away if they are at your tradeshow booth, and they get a nice long desk life especially if you can do one that is 50 sheets or 100 sheets thick.
Speaking of functional items, Adco Marketing produces these really great coasters. Unless you are going to use your iphone for a coaster (not recommended!), these are another item not going anywhere. Whether it's the full color stone coasters, or the custom cork coaster, or even the pub coasters made from cardboard, what a terrific promotional item on a budget!
Finally when you are on a tight convention trade show budget, even though you've spent thousands on your booth space, we recommend giving out a logo item more than your brochure (and full color brochures aren't cheap these days). The average pen lasts two years and is owned by eight people - that's great exposure! Try our javalina pen for under fifty cents for a cute pen that still writes really well. Even our custom memory flashdrives are now under five dollars and you can load that brochure and your corporate video onto there.
Adco Marketing has lots of products under a dollar, so give us a call to find some other budget promotional ideas! Yes, even our car chargers are under two dollars now...
