While you can’t guarantee each of your customers extra hours in every day, you can help them manage their time with printed promotional calendars. Promo calendars are readily available from a print shop like Viking, and could be the perfect give-away item to stock in your place of business.
Why? Because calendars get more use than any other long term promotional item! They are designed for up to 12 months of use. In a recent survey by the Advertising Specialties Institute, 76% of respondents who received calendars reported using them. The ROI was fantastic – just three tenths of a cent per impression!
Technology has changed how we track of time, with calendars on our phones, laptops and desktop computers, but the “old-school” personalized calendar is still a great item for many reasons including:
- The printed calendar shows a whole week, month, or year at a glance – no pulling up a computer program, scrolling around or having to squint at a handheld mobile device.
- Printed calendars encourage writing things on them – and studies show that hand-writing appointments reinforces the information in our memories better than typing on a keyboard. It’s muscle memory at work!
- You can easily color code appointments with a highlighter – easier then having to figure out a complex assignment system on your computer and labeling every single entry.
- A printed calendar never has a batter go dead, crashes or goes offline. You also don’t have to charge it up every day!
Besides being extremely useful, promotional calendars and planners put your name and logo in front of your customers on a daily basis all year long. Custom printed calendars from your Long Island print shop can be set on desks, tucked in pockets or briefcases, hung on walls or stored in wallets. It‘s a year’s worth of promotion at an unbeatable price.
Choose from several different styles to ensure you have the best give-away item for anyone who comes into your store:
These are compact, choice of weekly or monthly formats, easy to carry and make notes in.
Promo Desk Calendars
These are larger, in order to stand out on a cluttered desk, and can be personalized with motivational sayings or funny comics to brighten your customers’ day.
Stick-up and Wallet Size
A small stick-on calendar is perfect for on the car dash or computer monitor. Wallet sized calendars can include a tipping guide or conversion chart on the flip side of the card.
Promotional Wall Calendars
Hundreds of different themes are available, and the usual placement (eye level on the wall in a highly visible part of the home or office) means your logo gets seen many times daily.
In this age of computers and smart phones, printed paper calendars are still a great promotional item and have great ROI. Think about adding them to your branding efforts for the coming year!
