Fundraising is an essential part of running many organizations, especially charities, as they would simply not exist without being able to raise money in order to properly provide their services. Schools, sports teams, and other organizations are also often required to raise funds so they can afford to buy books, sporting equipment, and more.
Custom promotional products are a great way to raise funds for any organization, and there are several ways to go about it. From planning special events to basic fundraising, any business or charity can benefit from a successful fundraiser.
Charities often hold local events, inviting the public to come to learn about what they do. This is a great time to set up booths to sell products featuring your charity’s logo. Custom drinkware, cleaning cloths, bags, lip balm, hand sanitizer, and pens are ideal for events such as this. You can order a large variety of items, and setup up a table or booth at any entrance, so people have a chance to buy your merchandise as they come and go during the event. These same products are wonderful to give to people who donate to your cause or sell in an on-site store.
Schools and sporting clubs can also benefit from fundraising with promotional products. Below are several ways you can quickly and easily raise money for your school or sports team.
There is so much you can do to raise money for your cause. We have a great selection of promotional products to fit every need. And with the lowest prices online, you can easily make a profit on every item you sell.
Every product we sell is customized with your graphics. We offer one, two, three, and full-color imprints, depending on the product. Each product specifies its imprint requirements so you know exactly what you are getting!

When planning promotional events, swag bags are a great idea for any business. They not only provide guests with a goodie bag (which everyone loves!), but it’s a wonderful way to promote your brand and keep your name on the minds of customers and potential customers.
Creating a swag bag guests will love isn’t hard. Just make sure you have items that people can use more than once. Don’t waste your money on a one-use gimmick or fad items that will just end up in the trash before they even leave your event.
Start with a custom tote bag, like our Non-Woven Promotional Tote Bag. Pricing starts at 96¢, with an imprint area of 10″ W x 10″ H to showcase your company logo or event theme graphics.

And of course, if your bag is large enough, we have umbrellas. At the Custom Umbrella Store, we have a great selection of promotional umbrellas, ranging from just under $5.00 to around $25.00.
You don’t have to use all of these items of course. Pick a few that you feel people will use the most, put them in a custom bag with your logo, and people will remember your event and brand long after it is over!
The start of the school year signals the impending end of summer, and that fall will soon be here. Everyone will be excited about spending more time outside once the weather cools off a bit, and it’s a great time for outdoor events and activities. Below are just a few ideas to get you started.
Fall is a great time to hold a fundraiser for your local schools. Outdoor fairs and carnivals are always popular with the children and their families, and it’s a great way to raise money for your school. For the school itself, branding items with the school’s name and selling them at a table to earn money for the school, or even different clubs is a great idea. With all the folks that will be present at the event, you are sure to earn a fair amount of money to help fund your club.
Non-school branded items to giveaway during the event is a great idea too. You can easily offer to help your school by providing items imprinted with your logo to help sponsor the event. You could provide cups to help them serve drinks in, and offer free gifts the school could use in raffles or as prizes. Keytags, sunglasses, and sunscreen are just a few ideas that would make wonderful giveaway items for games and raffles.
A great way to boost brand reputation is by creating a contest for current and/or potential customers. You can offer a big prize (cash, your services, products, etc.) as well as smaller prizes. Consider tote bags, umbrellas, and drinkware as they make great gifts that will get a lot of repeat exposure.
With the cooler air, fall is a great time to hold an outdoor event, and what’s better than a chili cookoff! You can provide the venue and let people from all around enter the contest to see who can make the best chili! You can provide branded items that participants can use during the event, as well as prizes for the winners and runner-ups, as well as hold smaller guest contests to win other branded items.
Of course, we can’t forget Halloween! October is a wonderful month for promotions, and Halloween is a fun time that people of all ages can enjoy. There are so many things you can do for Halloween and it’s a great way to attract the attention of people of all ages. Below are just a few ideas for creating Halloween fun!
Here are few of our favorite promotional items that are ideal for any event. Order several to put together a great bag you can give out as prizes. We even have a cute pumpkin tote you can use to get you started!

Labor Day is the last holiday of the season, signifying the end of Summer. There’s no better time to throw a BBQ or party celebrating with family and friends or to have a company picnic showing employees how much you appreciate their efforts. After all, Labor Day was created to honor Americans and their contributions and hard work.
The first Labor Day was held in New York City on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, by the Central Labor Union, which was again celebrated a year later. As other cities and states gained momentum to adopt the holiday, President Grover Cleveland officially signed into law that the first Monday of September each year would be declared a national holiday known as Labor Day.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor website, Many Americans celebrate Labor Day with parades, picnics, and parties – festivities very similar to those outlined by the first proposal for a holiday, which suggested that the day should be observed with – a street parade to exhibit “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day.
While this gives us the basis of the holiday, over the years Labor Day has become a day to celebrate more intimately, with family, friends, and co-workers. And who says you can’t promote your company that hires those workers during your celebration?
Labor Day is a great time to celebrate your employees by providing them with a day filled with fun, activities, and of course, free stuff! Below we present some of the best promotional products you can use to show employee appreciation, that can also be used during your holiday party.
Let’s start with the basics. You will of course want to provide food! Anything from hot dogs and hamburgers, to ribs and steaks, are ideal for outdoor parties (depending on the size of your guest list)! And of course, you will want to serve drinks!
One of the easiest ways to serve drinks on a large scale is to fill coolers with ice and cans and/or bottles. From soda to beer, a custom koozie is a great way to keep those drinks cold and drinkable! And to keep in the theme of the day, consider our American Flag Full Color Hugger Koozies!
Starting at just 90¢ per piece, these 12 oz. collapsible beverage can holders will give guests a way to keep their drinks cold and makes a great take-home gift.
If you are serving up drinks made in pitchers (or maybe a keg of beer), consider a Stadium Cup. Perfect for any beverage, these sturdy and reusable handy cups start at just 51¢ per piece and are great for kids and adults alike.
If your event is catered for the adult crowd, consider a Stemless Wine Glass or maybe a Pint Glass. We have a wonderful selection of Barware including wine, beer, and shot glasses, as well as other types of barware ideal for any party.
How about sunglasses? No outdoor party is complete without some fun sunshades! Our Patriotic Malibu Retro Sunglasses featuring a vintage distressed American flag pattern with white temples would be a great choice for this American-made holiday.
If you want something that offers more colors, you could opt for one of our Retro Styled pairs of sunglasses and order them in an assortment of colors so guests can choose their own to match or complement what they are wearing.
And of course, don’t forget the kids! Every child loves to wear sunglasses. We have a nice selection of sunglasses geared towards Pre-School Age children, many of which come in an assortment so you don’t have to worry about ordering different colors – they come packaged that way!
Summer is a wonderful time of year for holding outdoor events and gatherings. Family reunions, weddings, corporate picnics, and barbecues, are all a great time to celebrate and spend time with others outside while enjoying the warm weather.
Custom sunglasses are a necessity when spending time in the sun, and are a great way to create a lasting reminder of family get-togethers, weddings, and other special events. They are also a fun way to promote any brand or event. Easy to order, just choose your style and colors, add your logo, and you have little walking billboards to be seen all over town!
Our sunglasses feature UV400 tinted lenses to provide 100% UVA and UVB protection from the sun, so you can enjoy being outdoors as long as you like without worrying about sun damage to your eyes.
There are so many styles to choose from, you are sure to find just the right one to represent your brand or event. Here’s a quick run down on some of our top selling frames!
Custom Malibu sunglasses are a customer favorite! These classically styled sunglasses are adorned with small metal details on the front of the frame on either side of the lenses, and look great with anything you wear. They come in many colors, including some with duo colored frames.

Originally created for pilots to protect their eyes from the glare of the sun while flying, aviator sunglasses are as popular now as they were when they appeared in the 1950’s.

These classic aviators will never go out of style! The tinted black lenses allow for easy visibility while protecting your eyes from the harsh rays of the sun, and the UV400 lenses provide 100% UVA and UVB Protection.

With a bottle opener on the end of each sunglass arm, your party goers can open their canned drinks at a moment’s notice! No bartender required.
New and small businesses have a lot of hurdles when starting out. Advertising your business doesn’t have to be one of them! While marketing is key in getting your name on the lips of potential new clients, you don’t have to break the bank while doing it.
Marketing a new business can be a trying time. Trying to find an effective, yet affordable way to get your name out might feel out of your reach when you first start your company. The good news is, it’s easy to promote your brand on just about any budget! Not all promotional products have to be expensive. While you have a lot of choices that fall in the under $1 category, there are also many custom items you can get for less than 50¢ a piece! Some for even less.
There are numerous products you can customize for 50¢ to $1.00 – custom bags, cleaning cloths, drinkware, hand sanitizer, lip balm, pens, sunglasses, and sunscreen are the most popular. Many of these options even have products under 25¢ per piece! So, no matter how low your current budget is, it’s easy to find a product to help promote your business and get you started.
Putting your logo on pens is about the cheapest item way you can spend your advertising dollars. Pricing starts below 20¢ a piece, making it affordable to buy in bulk and pass them out to anyone and everyone! The great thing about pens is not only will users see your company name or logo as they are writing, but others around them will see it too. And while pens are probably the most easily lost items, it doesn’t mean a loss for you. When one person loses a pen, another finds it, which extends your reach to another potential customer!
The best way for people to remember your name is by repetition, and if you give them a one-use item, they won’t remember you for long. You need to spend your money on products that will be used by potential (and/or current) customers daily so your name is always fresh on their minds.
When selecting a product to customize for your promotions, consider items that people will want to use over and over again, so your company name and logo are repeatedly seen by the user. Don’t bother with items that will be tossed after being used one time. Spend your money on items that will be used over and over again, giving your brand repeat exposure.
One of the hardest things about choosing a product is knowing what to customize. You can put your name on just about anything, but you want to be selective about the products you choose.
The key to a good promotional item is usability. Choosing a product people will use that is also seen by others is very important. It’s also vital to select something reusable, so you get the most bang for your buck. When you buy gimmicky little one-use gadgets or fad items, they usually just end up in the trash before you’ve had a chance to leave an impression on the person who received the item.
When looking for a product to represent your company, you want to choose something that your company would use, or that people might think of when using your customized item.
For instance, dentists and orthodontist clients favor custom lip balm. Almost everyone uses lip balm, and when your lips are feeling soft and moisturized, you tend to smile more. And no one wants you to have a great smile more than your dentist! And with prices as low as (or less than) 35¢ a piece, it’s easy to buy in bulk to pass out to every client when they come in for dental work or to use as a mailout for checkup reminders.
Another example is personalized pens. Pens are great for any business and work especially well for banks, realtors, car dealerships, and other companies you typically associate with signing papers.
Custom drinkware is another great promotional tool that works for any company. Not only does drinkware get a lot of reused, but your logo will be seen with every sip by the user, their coworkers, or other people around them.
Another factor to consider is how portable a personalized item is. If you pass out products with your name on them that can be easily kept on a person, the more likely your logo is to be seen frequently not only by the user but by others around them. Hand sanitizer, lip balm, pens, and sunglasses are a great way to showcase your name while staying within your budget.
The bottom line is, you really can’t afford NOT to promote your business. With so many items with prices below $1.00, it’s one of the best ways to spend your marketing dollars to advertise any company. Get started now at PromotionalWebstores.com!
Promoting your company or brand is one of the most important things you can do as a business owner. Many people think it’s a waste of money, but you can’t rely on word of mouth if you want to grow your business properly.
No matter how awesome your product is, if people don’t know about it, they can’t purchase it or your services. One of the best ways to get your name out to the public is by sponsoring an event.
There are numerous kinds of events you can have, depending on what type of business you are promoting. For sports-related companies, sponsoring a local race, golf tournament, or even holding your own company-sponsored outdoor event is an effective way to get the attention of the masses.
For general businesses, offering to be a sponsor for an event, school, or sports team is a wonderful way to get involved in your community and let people know you are in business.
Let’s take a look at the top promotional items you want to have when sponsoring an outdoor event.
First and foremost, one of the most important items you can have on hand for any outdoor event is water! You want everyone to have a good time, but you don’t want anyone’s day ruined by a trip to the hospital for dehydration! Even if your guests are not participating in sports or any exertion activities, it is still easy to become dehydrated when spending time outdoors.
The easiest way to keep everyone hydrated is of course by keeping cold bottled water on hand. And sure, you can hit the local store and buy cases of water, but why promote someone else’s company at your own event? Have custom bottled water on hand for everyone to enjoy, that also gives you the benefit of your name being on the label!
Another convenient option is a custom water bottle. While this may not provide immediate hydration, it allows guests to fill up the bottle with their own beverage to enjoy during your event. And afterwards, they get to take it home and use it again and again, each time seeing the name of your company on the custom logo imprinted on the bottle!
Company golf outings are a great way to boost employee morale, and while everyone is out having fun, you can advertise your company on a promotional golf umbrella! While umbrellas are typically used while it’s raining, they are also good to have on hand during outdoor events. Golf umbrellas are larger and offer protection from the sun as well as the rain. Sponsoring a golf tournament is another valuable way to market your brand.
Not just for golfing, custom umbrellas are always a good idea to have on hand for any outdoor event in the case of rain. Whether it’s your event or you are participating in a larger event, people will be grateful to protect them in case of rain.
In today’s world, you should never have an event without having lots of hand sanitizer available! It’s inexpensive, fits into any marketing budget, and is a fantastic way to promote your brand during any event. Not only can it be used during whatever occasion you are promoting, but it is small, portable, and can be easily displayed, no matter the venue.
Fill bowls or other containers with hand sanitizer with your custom label, and let attendees grab them when needed. Then they can take home the bottle to use at home or the office later, which will remind them of your event and company.
Lip balm is another item you don’t want to forgo for your event. Being outdoors can take a toll on lips, leaving them dry and cracked, especially if it involves sports of any kind. You can even opt for a lip balm containing SPF to offer protection from the sun.
Custom lip balm is extremely affordable and gives guests another great reusable product they can use during the event and then take with them when they leave. Giving you another opportunity to keep your name, literally, on their lips!
Sunglasses are a must for outdoor events! Even in the winter, the sun can be blinding, and you don’t want accidents to occur during sporting events because people were blinded by the sun causing them to lose sight of whatever their goal is. Even if they are not participating in the event sport, onlookers will be grateful for the protection a pair of UVA/UVB sunglasses will provide for their eyes.
And of course, let’s not forget the custom sunscreen! A necessity for any outdoor event, sunscreen protects your attendees from the harmful rays of the sun. Most people don’t think about bringing sunscreen when they head out to a promotional event, so they will be grateful that you had the forethought to have it on hand in case they need it.
Even if your event is during the winter, the sun doesn’t take days off! Remember, you can get a sunburn even if it’s cloudy outside, so make sure you offer your guests the protection they need.
What about the fads, the gimmicks, the cute little toys with your name on them? Sure, you can go that route if you like throwing your money away! Because that is exactly where that gimmick will end up – in the trash!
No one keeps those cute little fad toys, and if they even make it out of the event, they will either be tossed in the trash when they get home or given to a child to play with until it breaks (which honestly, won’t take long).
So don’t throw away your marketing dollars! Get the best exposure money can buy with a custom water bottle, bottled water, umbrella, sunglasses, lip balm, and hand sanitizer and make your event as successful as possible!
The last couple of years have been hard on us all. But now the winter blues are starting to lift. Many of us are starting to think about that well-deserved summer vacation. A beach holiday in the summer sun perhaps? Maybe a beautiful apartment with a lovely swimming pool. Or a wonderful city break to that destination you have been dreaming about for the last few years. We all deserve it, don’t we?
With restrictions starting to lift around the planet, those summer vacations are back on and it may just be a record-breaking year for the tourism industry! Well, let’s hope so, especially after the last couple of years!
Have you ever considered sending your brand on a summer holiday? Now before you question if I have already started on the summer cocktails, let me explain what I mean.
When we go on holiday there are a few items we regularly need! Sunglasses comes to mind, a bag to carry my kit to the hotel gym or down to the pool or beach, and even a bottle of sunscreen. Imagine if these items were promotional products that highlighted your brand!
In a previous article, we highlighted the value of using promotional products for great brand awareness. For someone to keep and use a promotional product it needs to fit two main criteria. It is something they will regularly use in their daily life, and it has to be of high quality. Here at Promotional Webstores, we offer a great range of quality sunglasses, sunscreen, and bags that can be customized to your brand. All at competitive prices! Hand these out to your clients, let them use them not only in their daily lives but also when they go on vacation. Then suddenly you have international exposure!
Now you might be sitting there reading this, thinking my brand does not really need international exposure. So, this really does not apply to me. Before you click away let me convince you that this is might not be the case!
With the boom of picture-based and video social media, your products have the potential to be viewed by millions of people worldwide along with the whole of the US. Just one great photo or video where your branded product is in full view and before you know it you may just become a viral sensation!
Just think how many pictures and videos will be posted and viewed this summer, of people enjoying their summer vacations with the most wonderful views, on the most beautiful beaches, at a great romantic restaurant, or at that tropical swimming pool. Each picture potentially has your branded sunglasses, sunscreen, or bag in that photo. Viewed by all their followers who suddenly start thinking…. I wonder who that company is?
Think back to your last holiday. We look at everything, taking it all in. We see everyone. Intrigued by their appearance, what they are wearing and carrying. Then we take pictures and videos and post them on social media for the world to see!
I bet you can picture someone you saw on your travels with a certain bag or product, and you remember the name of that company that was printed on it. Maybe you even googled them. Maybe you ended up being one of their customers…
