If you are the owner of a company, you may have products printed with your company name or logo. These products are referred to as promotional products, and they can be extremely useful in marketing your business. Printing your name or logo on commonly used items, such as coffee mugs, pens, and notebooks, allows customers to keep your brand in mind regularly. However, most businesses have to outsource the production of their promotional products, meaning they have to hire a promotional product company.
What to look for when hiring promotional product companies
If creating promotional products is new for you, hiring another company to handle it may feel daunting. The process can be overwhelming at first, but a quality and experienced promotional product company can ease your mind about the process and give you suggestions on the best products for your brand.
When hiring a promotional product company, it’s important to review the services and products they offer to ensure that they have items that will enhance your company’s brand. It is okay to hire a promotional product company that specializes in a few products, such as pens or T-shirts. Still, it can be difficult to expand your product line when hiring companies with a small catalog.
You also want to consider how long the company has been in business. Especially if you are new to promotional products, hiring a company that has been in the industry for 10, 20, or even 30 years can be beneficial because they have the knowledge and experience to guide you through every step of the process.

The first known use of promotional products was as buttons during the late 1700s when George Washington was elected president. While promotional products existed at this point, they didn’t take off till the late 1800s. Today, almost every brand has some form of promotional product, and these products can go a long way towards making your company or business a well-known name.
