5 different types of pens for 5 different events. Promotional pens are still one of the most used pieces of promotional merchandise in the world and they do not have to cost a fortune.
The launch of a new retail store
A mail out from a Garden Centre
The launch of a new Financial Product
The launch of a new film
The signing of a prestigious contract
Promotional activities that involve large crowds of people from all walks of life can be difficult to cater for in terms of what promotional Merchandise to give away. Nobody would turn down a free pen especially if it is of a reasonable quality. There are thousands of stylish, sleek, well made pens to choose from, the most popular are those that feel comfortable and look cool.
Without a doubt any activity that can be related to an Eco friendly subject is on to a winner these days. Companies such as garden centres, agricultural equipment manufacturers etc should always be looking to give away a promotional writing instrument that is as green as possible. There are hundreds of different pens manufactured from Soya beans, corn starch and lots of other recycled or Eco friendly materials that these type of pens are made from
For the more serious event such as the launch of a new financial product you need to have a promotional pen that is in keeping with the occasion. A metal pen with laser engraving would be an ideal choice in this case, the engraving brings an added touch of class to the finished product. You can also find a range of pens that would include a metal clip badge to add that special touch.
Where images are important there are many pens that are designed to maximise the advertising area for your message. Banner pens are ideal as promotional giveaways at such an event. They are designed with an internal roll out banner that extends from the barrel. The banner retracts automatically. Take a look at the floating pens that suspend your logo in a clear tube filled with liquid.
The obvious choice for prestigious events such as the signing of a new major contract or maybe the visit of a VIP is the classic Mont Blanc pen. This icon of writing instruments stands head and shoulders above the competition and has been used by most governments and Royal families for many years. There are of course a number of excellent alternatives such as Parker, Cross, Balmain and Waterman pens to name but a few.
Quantity is never as important as quality so keep that in mind at all times. It is far better to purchase fewer quality promotional items than lots more inexpensive giveaways that will be discarded by the recipients almost immediately.
