Real-world Promotional Product Prices from BuyerZone Buyers
In a recent survey of BuyerZone users, we asked about the price quotes they received on various promotional items. Below is a sampling of the responses, broken down into four product categories:
We've broken down these prices quotes into several groups, including some of the most popular promo product choices: t-shirts, mugs, and bags. While these items are popular for good reason - they're relatively cheap and widely used and appreciated - you can help your company stand out by choosing less common items for your giveaway.
An important point to keep in mind when shopping for promotional products is that the volume you buy will heavily impact the price you pay per item. Ask the vendor what quantity you'd have to buy to get to the next price tier - and even if that number is more than you need, do the math.
Often, you'll be able to find additional uses for the extra items you order to get a price break. In some cases, the total cost will be lower if you order more items.
