A: Regardless if you are a business, wedding or non profit organization, keep in mind your target demographic and that its 2017! A note pad with your logo is pretty irrelevant these days unless your supporters are of the Baby Boomer generation, and most of them are taking notes on their tablet or phones! Phones and tablets are undeniably a way of life and, therefore, perfect swag targets!! Try ordering logo'd phone cases one for Android and one for iPhone, logo stylus, iPad covers, stick on phone wallet, logo microfiber cloth, finger grip for phone, and logo selfie stick.
Whether technology related or not the best swag lasts longer than just the day they get it. My biggest pet peeve are those plastic coffee cups that melt in the washing machine and the paper logo on the inside of the cup gets wet and damaged even if you hand wash it. If you are on a limited budget, creative postcards are better than swag that gets ruined when your supporters try to use it. Cheap swag sends the message that your company or organization is cheap and that's a message you DON'T want to send!
