The top way corporate apparel adds value and ROI is by being a conversation starter. When you or one of your employees meets someone new, the logo on your shirt can be an easy ice breaker. You can share information about your business, receive feedback if a person is familiar with your business and more!

Another way corporate apparel adds value is by branding your company. While a website and app are excellent way to share your company’s message, they are not enough on their own. By you and your employees wearing your logo around town, you are creating brand recognition among those you come in contact with.

Safeguard Promotional Merchandise Ideas: Drinkware

Safeguard Charleston offers many different promotional merchandise including apparel, coozies, pens, tote bags, stationary products, business checks, post cards, and more. We would like to tell you more about each category of products to give you an idea of how different promotional merchandise can help you grow and brand your business.

To begin with let’s discuss drinkware. This category of promotional items includes tumblers, mugs, and water bottles. According to the American Specialty Institute, the promotional merchandise industry’s biggest membership organization, 84% of people remember the business who gave them promotional items.

Gifting clients or potential clients with drinkware ensures not only the client will see and be reminded of your business but the advertisement will also be taken to many different locations, like restaurants, shops, schools or even airports.  A water bottle with your logo on it might go to the gym, on errands, and to a different workplace all in one day!

Clients are more likely to retain a coffee mug or tumbler and use the drinkware on a regular basis versus a less expensive item like a pen or flyer. At a trade show or event, your table will stand out from the crowd with an eye-catching tumbler design. With a custom print of your company logo, tumblers, mugs or water bottles could become your next successful promotional product!
