There are many websites that offer promotional gifts and it can be difficult to wade through them in order to find what you are looking for. If you do not know what to look at and to look for you may make mistakes that can end up costing you a lot of money.
You may end up ordering the wrong items or you may end up racking up heavy personalization and shipping costs. If you know what to look for, you can avoid making the kind of errors that can ruin your budget and end up wasting your valuable time. Here are a few things that you need to look for specifically.
Price Per Unit
If you are buying promotional gifts in large numbers you want to look at the price per unit that is being advertised. Often, it is less expensive to buy items in larger quantities but you need to pay attention to any changes in the price per unit. You may be able to save a substantial amount of money on personalization and on the items themselves if you buy even a few items more than you would have otherwise.
If you are ordering a very small number of items, you may also want to make sure that there will not be any additional charges. Some sites will have a minimum order that needs to be placed or there will be additional charges or fees. This may also affect the price of your items and may change how many items you order.
Reading the descriptions of the items is very important and you need to make sure that you take as much time as possible to do so. You want to ensure that the dimensions are in line with the size of item you want to give and it can be a good idea to check out what the items are made from and what colors you can choose from. Remember to check and see if there is any price difference depending on what color you order as there may be a higher price for certain colors.
You should also see how the items are personalized as this can change which items you will pick for your promotional gifts. The last thing you want is to think that an item will have your information embroidered on it only to find out that it has been printed instead.
Taking the time to learn as much as possible about the promotional gifts you are ordering will ensure that you are completely satisfied and that you can keep within your company’s budget.
