Often times promotional gifts are gaudy trinkets passed out willy-nilly to anyone that will take them. While there are some people that will accept anything that is free, you more than likely would prefer to have your promotional gifts seen as something special and unique. Promotional keyrings, when done properly, can act as an ambassador for your brand for a relatively long period of time.
Here are some tips to help you choose a promotional keyrings that people will want to use to carry their keys with.
The first thing to consider is the material used. Many people will prefer something that is soft if it is meant to carried in a pocket. Leather is an excellent material choice for this type of key fob. The soft and supple leather keychain can be either imprinted with ink or stamped for a two-toned appearance.
The leather promotional keyring can last for years while promoting your brand in a very stylish way. The leather keyring can be straight leather only or decorated with a hard plastic or medal medallion for added finesse.
If longevity is not an issue, promotional keyrings made from soft rubber have practically unlimited possibilities in regards to what shape they can be made in. For example, you can hand out rubber key fobs in the shape of a fish to promote your sushi or fish and chips shoppe. Keep in mind that the ink imprinted on this type of key ring will eventually wear off, which makes them best used to commemorate an event.
Hard plastic promotional keyrings are the most affordable, but like the soft rubber fobs, the ink will rub off eventually and your promotional key ring will no longer be useful as a brand recognition tool. However, the hard plastic keyrings can be made with very bright colours- many people will prefer this feature, especially those who are prone to forgetting where they left their keys.
Some plastic promotional keyrings have an encapsulated imprint so that the print never wears off.
If you really want to hand out a coveted promotional keyring, metal materials will do the job nicely. If your promotional key fob has a dual purpose, such as a branded pocket knife or bottle opener, you can expect your promotional gift to be a huge hit. The best way to choose what style of promotional keyring is by asking yourself “is this something I would be proud to carry around and display myself?”
Promotional keyrings have the ability to work as promotional tools due to the simple fact that your brand will be noticed every time it is used, whether it is unlocking a door or starting an auto. If you want to convey a message of class with your promotional gift, a stylish keychain can be a very effective tool.
