If you go to any well known café or restaurant, then you will automatically think about the custom merchandise they use, so as a café owner why should you miss out?
Lots of people are under the false impression that using promotional items within their café or restaurant will cost a fortune, however this isn't the case. You can purchase custom merchandise very cheaply meaning that there is no reason why the napkins and mugs, at least, should be branded within your café.
If you are completely new to customer merchandise then the first step for you is to purchase mugs to be used within your café. These prices can vary, which means you can decide on the quality of your mugs depending on the budget you have available. There are lots of designs you can choose from, and you can design them in any colour, which means that you can style them within your brand colours and print with your company logo.
If you don't quite want to stretch to mugs, then you may decide instead to use takeaway cups, or even just takeaway cup sleeves to ensure your customers don't burn themselves. Paper cup sleeves are great to add a design to what otherwise could be just a boring cup. This is even better branding for your business, as the cup will be taken away from the shop which means it will be seen by many other people.
Branded napkins are also great promotional ideas, they can be purchased in a very high quantity and be branded with your company logo. These can also be in different colours, so can match the brand image you are trying to portray. Napkins are always going to be used, so are a guaranteed advertisement for your brand.
Once you have decided on the promotional items you want to use, then you are already one step ahead of other local competitors. You could even follow the lead of leading high street coffee chains by selling travel mugs, coffee and different syrups. However, it is vitally important that you are well established before you start trying to sell promotional items, as people are unlikely to want to buy an item from an unknown brand.
