Printing Promotional Items: Small Gifts Expand Customer Base


98 percent of all Germans own at least one promotional gift - such as a printed pen, a branded umbrella, or a printed USB stick. This is according to a study by the Association of the Promotional Products Industry (GWW).

Distributing giveaways with logos to a specific target group is still a very effective advertising method even in the digital age. And rightly so: Unlike emails, newsletters, and other digital advertising materials, printed promotional items are usually present with potential customers for a very long time. Most people even keep promotional gifts for years.

Furthermore, there are other significant arguments in favor of using promotional gifts with brand logos: 

  • Unlike digital discount coupons, which customers do not perceive as gifts, promotional items are seen as genuine gifts - and receiving something as a gift has a positive connotation.
  • Printed promotional items act as multipliers. For example, if the owner of a branded thermal mug uses the mug at their workplace, all colleagues in their department see the mug (and the logo or advertising message).
  • Promotional items with high utility value keep refreshing the advertising message. For instance, a shopping cart token that is used several times a week serves as a brand ambassador multiple times per week.

Mail Boxes Etc. prints promotional items of all kinds for you - from office supplies to caps and textiles to balloons and gummy bear bags. Whether you want to print pens, lighters, rulers, cotton bags, or umbrellas: With Mail Boxes Etc., everything is possible.

What Matters in Printed Promotional Items

How many lanyards have you bought for yourself in your life? Most likely none. However, you probably own (and use) at least one or have owned one before - and most likely, it was printed with an advertising message.

This shows that promotional items can work excellently as a marketing tool. However, they must be selected and used thoughtfully.

Target Audience
Some promotional items work only for a specific target audience, while they have little impact on another group. Printed mousepads, for example, are interesting for office employees, but they have little utility for teenagers. On the other hand, printed baseball caps have a much better effect on teenagers than on office employees. Since Mail Boxes Etc. can print practically anything, you will definitely find the right items for your customers with us.

Thematic Relevance
Although pens always work as promotional items, an automobile dealership promoting an environmentally friendly new model may prefer to distribute printed wooden pencils rather than printed plastic pens. Pay attention to thematic relevance when selecting promotional items! Mail Boxes Etc. offers you plenty of options.

An advertising gift bundle is even more effective than a single printed promotional gift - for example, a printed cotton bag containing a printed t-shirt and a printed lanyard. Such bundles are ideal when sponsoring sports events, for instance! With Mail Boxes Etc., you can create small and large bundles; we ensure timely provision of all components.
