Shopping for Promotional Products…the Right Way
By John Hanksworth
How many times have you purchased something, especially one that required customization over the Internet, only to be disappointed when the final product arrived? Maybe it's because of shoddy workmanship on the part of the company; maybe you should have done more research before committing to one product or business; or perhaps it's that you expected way too much from a company that just didn't have the ability to deliver to your expectations; or maybe it's a simple combination of all of these. Whatever the case may be, there's a right and a wrong way to shop for promotional products on the World Wide Web.
First things first, you want to be sure that you're dealing with a reputable e-business that is just as concerned with your personal information and security as you are. A real, physical address will help ease your mind about a fly-by-night operation that might run off with your hard earned money. Although post office box numbers or other forms of postal disbursements aren't a certainty for fraud, it's a nice feeling to see a brick and mortar building to accompany your payment.
Next, don't feel obligated to order a promotional product that you aren't completely happy with or thrilled about giving away. It's YOUR company name that is going to be printed on the item, so you shouldn't settle for an item that you feel is subpar to your standards or doesn't fully represent or symbolize all of your efforts. Epromos.com, branders.com , 4imprint.com and gimmes.com are some of the larger sources of promotional products on the World Wide Web. Qualitylogoproducts.com proudly boasts that they have more than 9,000 handpicked, individual items for you to choose from, so there's bound to be at least one that's as unique as you and your company.
Don't forget about service! The best online promotional product companies understand what your needs are, and are more than willing to help you choose the best individual item to represent your company. If you can't seem to find what you're looking for, have some difficulty choosing between several, or simply have no idea what you want to represent your company, a team of professionals at a higher-end store will be more than happy to work with you to get the job done. Many of these companies will offer you assistance with artwork and logo design (some of them without a fee); you just need to know how and where to find them.
Guarantees are only as good as the company that offers them. With this in mind, if you take care and caution to pick out the right promotional products company online, the need for a guarantee will be the furthest thing from your mind, but it's always nice to know it's there.
