Choosing The Right Event Giveaway For Your Brand

With the huge range of promotional products available, it can be difficult to know where to begin when choosing which items will be best suited for your brand at an event. So, to help you find the perfect event giveaway for your business, we've rounded up some of the most popular and effective branded items - all waiting to be printed with your logo!

1. Branded Bags

It can be hard to decide which type and style of promotional bag will be best suited for the event you are going to. The first step is to think about why the participants will want this bag; will you be placing agendas and information packs in them, or will they perhaps be given to your customers once they have received or purchased an item from your stall?

Our Printed Cotton Tote Bags are the ideal event giveaway, especially if attendees need to carry flyers, notepads and other important paperwork around the event with them. Displaying your full colour company logo, these reusable bags offer long-lasting brand awareness even once the event is over. And that's not even mentioning the eco-friendly credentials these canvas tote bags will give your business!

Did you know that branded bags sit in the top place of promotional merchandise market value, with a whopping value of £178,911,356 (14% of market share)? These custom printed paper bags are manufactured with a matt laminate finish and rope handles for a more quality look than standard paper bags or plastic carrier bags, these bags are a great way to align your branding with an elegant touch at any function.

2. Promotional Lanyards

If your business is running an event - whether it's a conference, trade show, or festival - branded lanyards are an essential event giveaway. Ideal for keeping event passes and name badges safe and on display, you really can't go wrong with personalised lanyards.

Our Express 20mm Full Colour Lanyards are a bestseller for a reason! Printed with your logo along both sides and in eye-catching full colour, they're guaranteed to promote your business out-and-about at events. Best of all: if you're on a tight deadline, these promotional lanyards can be with your from just 72 hours.

3. Personalised Stress Balls

Stress balls are an eye-catching and engaging promotional giveaway to have on display at your stand. Best of all, combining high-impact brand awareness and great low prices, our personalised stress balls really won't break the bank! Due to their usability, stress balls are likely to be kept for many years, creating a positive association and a reminder of your brand with every squeeze.

If you're looking for a budget-friendly, yet highly effective then look no further than these Low Cost Stress Balls. Available in a range of colours to suit any company design and personalised with your logo, these branded stress balls can be yours from just 49p per unit!

For maximum impact, why not opt for our Bespoke Stress Shapes? Pantone-matched and moulded into your specific shape and design, they make a completely unique event giveaway. Price is dependent on your brand's design requirements so get in touch today for your bespoke quote.

These Rock Sweets are individually wrapped, bite-sized classic confectionery with a difference! Each rock sweet is printed with your message all the way through for mouthwateringly good brand awareness.

Our Love Heart Mini Rolls are a sure way to leave a lasting impression - and tingle your customers' tastebuds, in the process.
