Amongst the numerous ways to gain brand recognition, promo products/trinkets just happen to be on the top of the list. Trinkets can include everything from water bottles to key chains and koozies branded with your logo or design. It's a system which definitely works, so give a little to gain a lot!

 

With that being said, have you been building your brand recognition? If not, it's time you got started. Promo products should be an essential part of your branding efforts.

Paired with other marketing efforts you're guaranteed the best results.

High Quality

We were at the end of our rope dealing with cookie cutter, bland swag companies until SMC was recommended to us for their custom work and amazing customer service. It has been one of the best decisions we have ever made when it comes to growing our business. Giving people high-quality swag has meant that every dollar spent was a dollar in functional marketing and not just another shirt sitting unused in our customers closest.
