Calculators Provide Great ROI - Do the Math!
Practically any business would benefit from using calculators as a promotional item, but the obvious ones are banks, mortgage companies, title companies, real estate agents, and any financial service companies. Banks can give them to customers who open an account as a thank you or use them at trade shows. They can also be used for employee awards.
Other users could be auto dealers, home improvement stores, contractors, accountants, tax preparers, and IT companies. The key in selecting a promotional product is finding an item that people will actually use. There are a lot of products on the market to put your logo on, but you want to make sure they don't get thrown away or shoved in a drawer.
Calculators are inexpensive and get a lot of use. Even if it's not being used, chances are it's still sitting on the desk and being seen. That's a lot of exposure for a small investment.
I have an attractive 8-digit curve-shaped calculator available in red, blue, black, or lime (pictured). It measures 3" x 4¼" with an imprint area of 1¼" x ¼". Prices start at just $2.15 (100 min.) plus tax and shipping. Set up fee $37.50. (Note: Prices are accurate at time of blog post and may change without notice). The calculator includes the battery and is gift boxed at no additional charge.
