If They Mated: 5 Two-in-One Promotional Products to Stretch Your Marketing Dollars
You would think that promotional products lead very simple lives. They’re manufactured, they wait around to be imprinted with your logo, and then they are transferred into your clients’ hands to bring you endless brand impressions and new business. And that’s it, right?
This woman has never received a 2-in-1 item.
In true Toy Story fashion, your promotional items are constantly trying to better themselves when you’re not looking. They are not content to be just a pen, or just a tote bag. They want to be the entire package: a two-in-one product that will enchant your customers.
I discovered this last week when on the search for my white out. I had forgotten that I had left a pen and highlighter unsupervised in one of my drawers. But when I opened the drawer and saw a new pen/highlighter combo tucked into a corner while the original pen and highlighter stared at me blankly, it was then that I learned that things happen behind closed drawers.
After searching through my office, I discovered many new and exotic hybrids that I just had to share with you here. And with two functions in one, they’ll definitely extend the reach of your marketing dollars and promotional efforts.
It started innocent enough. I found an ice scraper cozied up with a glove from our Keep Warm Buddy Set. What resulted was the brilliant, not-your-father’s Ice Scraper Hand Mitten.
These ice scraper hand mittens are even better than the conventional ice scraper. They’ll make great items for any brand in the automotive industry, or any business located in areas with harsh winters.
I moseyed into the kitchen and opened one of the many cabinets when I spied a pizza cutter and pie server resting a little too close for my liking. As I pulled out the drawer more, I discovered their child, the Slice and Serve Pizza Cutter, and that I wanted pizza real bad.
Any pizza lover will be tickled pink with this cutter and server combo. Not only will it cut down on time from switching from cutter to server, but it also reduces the amount of dishes to clean. These would be a huge hit at community fairs and grand openings.
Our media team has boxes upon boxes of stress balls in their office, so naturally that was the next place for me to look. Lying within the stress balls was a single yo-yo. I shook my head, dug deeper, and stumbled upon a fleet of stress ball yo-yos.
These fun, little stress ball yo-yos will be exciting additions to trade shows and community events with families.
But then it got stranger. No longer were innocent promo products just expressing their feelings. Oh no, items like a fanny pack and a radio had mated to spawn the bizarre AM/FM Radio with Earphone.
Though while a little bizarre in looks, the combo radio and fanny pack is great for clients that jog a lot or work outdoors.
And then it got better…or worse, depending on your definition. We sell empty jars, we sell pocket knives, but did you know that we sell their offspring, an entire Jar of Knives?
Each and every knife is engraved with your logo, so you can just pick up a few jars and have great handouts for an outdoor sports and equipment store.
But the madness doesn’t stop there. We have hundreds of two-in-one items (some with even three or four-in-one) available. As we discover them, we’ll keep putting them up on our site for you to see if you’ve found a promotional match made in heaven.
And if you’ll excuse me, I just saw a clock and pencil cup sneak around the corner…
Have you ever received or purchased a two-in-one item? Did you like it? What’s the most bizarre two or more-in-one item you’ve ever seen?
