Shelf life of promotional items can be lengthy so you can have your brand in front of your target market for a potentially long time for the small investment of a run of promo items. We’ve put together a top ten list of cost-effective items that we think your clients would enjoy and see benefit in using – it’s all about giving them that warm, fuzzy feeling!

Available in a variety of sizes and styles choose an option that suits your target market and budget. Printing onto a note pad depending on the size allows you to include more detail along with your logo, you could include contact details, imagery, a tagline or a combination of all.
