Find the Perfect Promo Faster: Searching By Imprint Type and Colors

Welcome back, QLP fans! By now you have probably gotten the idea that we’ve revamped our search function a cool way that allows you to find exactly what you want without having to read a million things or asking a million questions. Finding the perfect promo item has never been easier!

Today I am going to show you how you can search our products to make sure that you can replicate your logo on your items exactly how you want.

Let’s take a look at this great video that the Media Team put together.


For this example, let’s say that you want to get a custom water bottle with your logo on it. First you head to the QLP homepage.

Then you can either click through the product categories (“Browse by: Product drop down menu) to get to the water bottles, or type “water bottles” into our giant search bar at the top.

Once you get to the results page, we can start narrowing it down. You have the choice to refine your search by price, item color, delivery, category, other options, decoration, beverage capacity, or material. While you should keep all of these factors in mind while searching, we’re going to focus on decoration.

Click the arrow next to decoration and you’ll get a few options.

Depending on the type of item you’re looking for, there could be more or less options than the ones shown for water bottles.

Now, let’s pretend that you have a company logo that requires three different colors. Something like this (but obviously cooler and far more elegant):


If you are absolutely set on having your logo printed with all three colors, you have a couple of options.

Option 1: Full color

Full color imprints allow you to use as many colors as you want for one price. Printers are used to transfer your photo-like image directly to the bottle. So if you want to print your rainbow logo for the lowest price, this might be a good option for you.

Option 2: 3 ink colors

For various reasons, not every factory and every product has the capability to print or hold three different imprint colors. So let’s eliminate the ones that can’t and focus on the ones that can.

If you click the ink box, type 3 into the #of colors section, and then hit enter, our website will only display the water bottles that are able to have your logo exactly how you want it.

In this example, that takes you from 675 choices to just 65. That is significantly easier to sift through! If you want to narrow your results even more, you can scroll up or down to filter your results by color, price, delivery date, how many ounces you want your bottles to have, and more! You’ll have a manageable choice of products in no time!

Now that we’ve gone over how to narrow your results by number of imprint colors, let’s check out some of the other imprint choices in the trade show giveaway category!

So if you’re really looking for a product where you can have your company name embroidered on it, you just have to click the box next to “embroidery.”

It’s definitely a cool new way to search for your perfect promotional item! Happy exploring and don’t hesitate to come back with any questions! Stay tuned for additional posts about how to get the most out of our new search function!

    I just used this new awesome feature yesterday! Needed to find a Stainless Mug that could hold 3 colors! I will tell you it was SO helpful in my search! With QLP having so many products, a quick way to find items is ideal! And this search option takes it to a new level!

  2. Kat D.

    I <3 this search feature!! I use it every single day, and it's so easy to use! If QLP's site wasn't "user friendly" before it sure is now!!

  3. Michael Wenger

    Joe, right on brother! This is rad! I just noticed to you can go bonkers and trim down the results even further by adding additional filters such as bottle colors, bottle materials, QCA suppliers, OH MY! This thing is the BOMB!

  4. Erin Johnston

    Awesome helpful information! Our new search features really help narrow down options when searching for specifics…. which our customers have been loving!

    I know I have said this before, but QLP’s search functions on this new website are like none other. We all know that going through 100 pages of plastic water bottles can be very annoying, but now with these new search functions where you can filter by the imprint colors in your logo, it’s WAY easier and your brain will feel better afterwards. This also helps your browsing become way more productive as well. So to sum this up in a nutshell……this website rocks. Enjoy it.

    LOVE this new feature! With a click of a button I can limit my search to only things that can be printed in full color or embroidered etc. No more having to search each individual product for available decoration methods.

    QLP is really making the process of finding the exact item you need effortless.

    This is such a helpful article. Our website is better than ever now! It makes everything so much easier for ourselves and customers find the right item that they need quickly. Great detailed article to help everyone navigate our awesome and improved website!

  8. Leo Avila

    Love the new site. AMAZING! Had no idea you can do so much with a site when searching for goods. Shows how complex this business really is. 🙂

  9. David

    The revamped search function is about the only way to sort through the 3,500+ pens that QLP offers. Without all the search criteria, it would take quite a while to find the pen that fits your needs.

    Way to go on the new website Bubba!!

    The more and more I am on this website, I learn something new! The functions on our website reduce the time searching though thousands of different options! Love it! If you think about something… we probably have it and this new search tool comes in very handy especially if you are in a time crunch! 2 thumbs up!!!

  11. Angie

    You hit out of the ballpark with the new and improved search functions. Great informative article as always.

  12. Greg

    Search and you shall find!!! Color, size, date, material, imprint method! By far, the best search function on any website that I’ve seen! THE BEST!

  13. Jaimie

    The functions on this website are just absolutely amazing! It helps the customers find the perfect product for their upcoming project. Seriously the best website out there! I have always loved shopping on Victoria’s Secret Website because it was so easy and accommodating, but this may be my new favorite! 🙂

  14. Anthony

    Websites that use search methods like this make your shopping way easier because you are able to find the specifics of what you are trying to find. I see a lot of companies now implement this type of search. But sometimes they glitch and mess up, giving you the wrong products that dont match your search results. So far, our system has been accurate so it will be a lot nicer for customers to find what they want. It’s awesome I love it!
