My fist real job was working as a cashier at a hardware and lumber store. I won’t specifically mention the name, but let’s just say it’s the place construction workers, handy men, and weekend warriors could save big money on all the essential carpentry tools they need. During these 8 years of my life, I became quite familiar with the way businessmen in the construction and remodeling industry promoted themselves, and also with the way they operated their businesses in a spiraling recession!

That being said, I rehashed some fond memories and put together a list of the best promotional products for the construction industry. From part-time home improvement handymen to full-time commercial contractors, there is something for anyone trying to get their brand name out there.

#1: Magnetic Car Sign

A magnetic car sign would be my first suggestion. These are great to get your brand name out on the road! They are unique and much less expensive than permanent auto decals. I like the Spot Color Car Sign because it’s big (12”x24”) and it has a low order quantity. You can order the minimum of just two for yourself or you can order more and give them to employees and clients. If you think the big sign is just too much, try something smaller, like the Oval Car Sign, and give them away to your most loyal clients. These car magnets are safe for vehicles and they can be easily removed for maintenance.

If car signs aren’t your speed, another great idea would be magnetic koozies. Your construction crew can stick them right to a metal pole or building project, keeping their cool drink right within reach!

#2: Carpenter Pencils

Carpenter pencils are popular promotional items for construction crews. The Carpenter Pencil comes in a variety of colors, so you can tweak it accordingly for that special touch. With your logo printed on these great promo items, you’re sure to get a lot of attention back to your building business or handyman service.

#3: Novelty Pens

Unusual pen styles also nail down brand loyalty, such as the Nail Pen or the Wrench Pen. These are great for a specialty line of remodeling or handy work, like plumbers or framers (people who solely frame buildings and home additions). When your client whips out your cool promo pen to show it off, then rest assured all other company pens will quiver in fear of your marketing genius.

#4: Shaped Stress Ball

And last but certainly not least is the Construction Cone Stress Reliever. This bright orange cone is sure to catch the attention of potential clients and it can also be useful around the house. I have a friend who uses this stress reliever to mark “spill zones” in her house, where her toddler has made a mess with food or juice, and is still wet from the cleanup. I thought it was a super clever and practical use for it. When you see an orange cone on the ground, it’s common knowledge to be aware of that area.

#5: Promotional Tape Measures

If none of these items seem like a good fit for your construction business, that’s perfectly okay! We’ve got a few more tricks up our sleeve. For a lasting impact that’s not a financial burden, try one of our tried-and-true promotional products like the Construction-Pro 10’ Tape Measures.
