Unusual Corporate Gifts To Make You Stand Out From Competition

With the economy stuck in a seemingly permanent nosedive, it becomes important to come up with quirky corporate merchandise that might prove to put your brand name on the map. Coming up with eye-catching corporate merchandise can not only increase your brand exposure but can also leave lasting impressions on potential clientele and business partners.

For some, promotional merchandise is just products that a company puts its brand on. An eye-catching product itself, however, would do more to advertise your brand than any logo can. A quirky item can also give an impression of how far your company has evolved from the simple promotional mug or pen.

Promotional Corporate Games When you think of the word business conglomerate the last thing that would come to your mind is board games. This can easily translate to the first business deal or investment that comes to a customer who appreciates a good sense of humour. There is a little kid inside everyone. A fun board or puzzle game suited to your company’s dealings can be an innovative way of putting your brand on the map. Fun games like darts can also be a reprieve for employees seeking to make a dull monotonous office life a little less boring.

Eco-Friendly Promotional Items Merchandise that are environmentally friendly can also boost your organization’s rep. Companies have been known to include pencil sharpeners made out of cardboard in their stock of promotional corporate items. The best thing about these tiny office accessories is that they are designed to look and feel exactly like wood.

Companies have also been known to hand out water-powered calculators and clocks to their employees. Having Frisbees made from used CD covers are also an economical and fun way to up your company’s status. Remember, a green company is an ethical company. A principled outlook will not only help you gain your employees’ respect but will also make clients want to get to know you better.

Last but certainly not least, do not forget to emboss your quirky corporate merchandise with the company logo. After all, clients will want to know who was responsible for the wacky pens and office games at the last expo!
