What are the Best Cheap Promotional Items & Giveaways?
How You Can Stretch Your Budget with Inexpensive Promotional Products.
1. Plan Ahead
One of the easiest ways you can save money is to start the order process sooner rather than later. Begin by researching the best products that will fit your needs and timeline. If you have "camera ready artwork" for your design that is vector, .eps, Illustrator, or a very high resolution .jpg, it will make the proofing process on your order go much faster. By ordering early you can avoid expensive rush fees or expedited shipping charges that can quickly increase the price of your promotional products.
2. Search for Closeout, Sales, or Discounted Items
Another way you can find cheaper swag is by finding deals on any merchandise that is on closeout, on sale, or discounted. You can reach out to your account manager at USimprints and they can help you find a deal. The only drawback can be that you may not be able to place a reorder for the item or purchase at the same price.
3. Buy in Bulk and Save
You can also maximize your budget and get cheaper prices on swag by ordering in bulk. We recommend planning for up to 6 months to a year with your marketing budget by ordering a higher quantity to last longer. Take advantage of lower prices with quantity discounts and savings on shipping by placing a larger order - instead of smaller incremental orders. You may also work with other departments at your organization to group ordering together to save.
