Promotional Products- Quality vs Cheap

When purchasing promotional apparel and items, It is always important to consider what the quality of the item says about your brand.  Some cheap items - while useful to fit a budget -  will reflect in a very negative way for your brand if the situation demands higher quality.  You should always ask the question, "Does this product represent who we are and what we want to communicate about our brand?"
Here are some pros and cons to varying levels of promotional items


High Quality/Cost Promotional Products


Pros:
  • Great for employee reward or VIP customer gifts
  • Communicate High Value of your brand
  • Great for building strong relationships
  • Often can be done at lower minimum quantities

Cons:
  • High-quality items generally always have higher price points
  • Not always cost effective for large scale giveaways/events


Budget/Affordable Promotional Products


Pros:
  • Great for mass giveaways such as tradeshows and marketing events where this level of giveaway is very common
  • Lower cost means more bang for your buck in terms of quantity and cost per item
  • Wide variety of items to fit any budget

Cons:
  • Can communicate poorly about your brand if item is of poor quality
  • Often the cheapest items won’t be kept, meaning less marketing reach over the long term
