10 Reasons Why Printed Flying Discs Make Great Promotional Giveaways

Catch! It's time to talk about promotional flying discs, people. 

They go by a variety of names (other aliases include flyers and skyspinners) and come in all manners of sizes and colours. But the one thing we can definitely all agree on is this: printed flying discs are highly-effective means to send awareness for your business soaring to whole new levels.

Steeped in a history both old-and-new - from the Ancient Greeks launching the idea of competitive discus throwing in their Olympic Games to the launch of the 🥏emoji on smartphones in 2018 - the beauty of the flying disc lies in its plain simplicity. A simple design, a simple method and a simple way to wile hours with friends and family... All in all, it's a winning combination that has delighted people since the first 'proper' flyer was launched into the air in the 1950s. 

What Kind Of Campaign Benefits From A Promotional Flyer Giveaway?

  • Health-related campaigns: encouraging fitness and activity amongst your audience.
  • Pet-themed campaigns: much as the Earth spins and the sun shines, so too do dogs love playing with flying discs. 
  • Summer-inspired campaigns: along with rounders, flyer-throwing is, arguably, the low-key sport of the summer. 

And there are many others, too!

So with all that in mind, why, exactly, is a printed flyer or promotional flying disc such a powerful tool when it comes to helping awareness for your business rocket? There are many reasons - and we've outlined some of the most pertinent points for you below!

Promotional Flying Discs Are Budget-Friendly

With prices for our promotional skyspinners starting as low as 23p per item for our Mini Turbo Flying Discs (dependent on the size of your order), they can make a great match for marketing budgets both large and small. 

Printed Flyers Are Available In A Whole Rainbow Of Colours

Whether your business has a strict corporate identity or is a bit more flexible in terms of its colours, our flying discs are available in a range of shades that mean we can match it. 

Printed Flying Discs Are Portable

Meaning you can take them anywhere: to the beach, to the park or even just out into the garden. These are items that are usable in a UK park as they are on a beach on the other side of the world. In fact, they don't come much smaller than these Foldable Nylon Flying Discs, which can be perfectly folded up in order to make them even more travel-friendly. 

Branded Flyers Help Keep Your Brand Present During Good Times

Fact: playing with a skyspinner is enjoyable. So why would you not want your business to be associated with that? Let the fun times roll - well, fly - with your branding on display all the while with our range of promotional flying discs.

Promotional Flyers Can Be Printed In Up-To Full Colour

...Meaning they're ideal for helping send your latest campaign imagery soar into the minds of your customers. Whether it's a striking image from a recent photoshoot or your branding displayed in glorious full colour, keep it striking and attention-grabbing with our promotional Full Colour Flying Disc!

Printed Skyspinners Are A Great Way To Spread New Awareness Of Your Brand

By its very definition, playing with a flying disc is a sociable pursuit. It's a game enjoyed outdoors with others, encouraging interaction and amusement for all involved. Of course, the social element of the game means that your branding will be seen by whole new customers, with the potential to generate new leads, or at the very least, awareness for your company. 

Branded Flyers Can Be Eco-Friendly!

Available in your choice of six colours, our Large Recycled Flyer is made from repurposed plastic and is perfect for adding some environmentally-conscious savvy to your marketing plans.

Promotional Flying Discs Encourage Your Customers To Get Active

If you're planning a health-related campaign and want to add a touch of fun to your efforts, look no further than a printed skyspinner to help you get your message out there. 

Printed Flyers Are Loved By Kids & Adults Alike

The charm of the promotional flying disc is it has a kind of universal appeal that means it's as likely to be played with by a child as it as a pensioner. Simple to use, easy to catch and - let's be honest - satisfying to throw at someone, they're beloved by audiences young and old.
