Why promotional merchandise is the right choice to help promote your business or startup

By Fallon Michael on Unsplash

Promotional merchandise is an ideal way to get your startup noticed. Whether you’re giving away t-shirts, mugs, hats, or any other item with your brand on it, these items are a great way to draw attention to your business and attract new users and customers. Here’s why promotional merchandise is so effective for startups:

1. Cost-Effective:  Promotional merchandise is an incredibly cost-effective way to promote your startup. Compared to other forms of advertising, such as TV or print ads, promotional merchandise is much more affordable. And with the right design, you can get your message across without spending a fortune.

2. Visibility:  One of the biggest benefits of promotional merchandise is its ability to increase visibility. By giving away t-shirts, hats, mugs, and other items with your brand on it, you can help spread the word about your business and get your name out there. People are more likely to remember your brand if they see it multiple times, and promotional merchandise is a great way to achieve that.

3. Brand Awareness:  Promotional merchandise is an effective way to increase brand awareness. People are more likely to remember your brand if they’ve seen it multiple times, and promotional items are a great way to achieve that. Plus, when people wear your t-shirts or mugs, they’re essentially walking billboards for your business.

4. Show Appreciation:  Promotional merchandise is also a great way to show appreciation for your customers. Whether it’s giving away free t-shirts at a launch event or offering mugs or hats as incentives for signing up for your service, promotional merchandise can help make your customers feel valued and appreciated.

5. Build Loyalty:  Promotional merchandise can also help you build loyalty with your customers. When people wear or use items with your brand on it, it helps create a sense of loyalty and connection to your business. This can be invaluable for startups looking to build a loyal customer base.

Overall, promotional merchandise is an effective way to promote your startup. It’s cost-effective, increases visibility, and helps build brand awareness and loyalty. Plus, it’s a great way to show appreciation for your customers and make them feel valued. So if you’re looking for an effective way to promote your business, promotional merchandise is definitely worth considering.

Open for business!

Latest update – 8th April 2020

You’ve no doubt received countless emails and updates from your favourite businesses about how they’re dealing with the Coronavirus situation. So we’re keeping this super short, sweet, and simple.

Ramp T-shirts in a box, ready for delivery!

We’re open for business, and will continue to work hard (and safely), to get your orders to you for as long as we’re legally (and safely) able to.

However, it’s worth noting that our supply chain is slightly disrupted, so things are slightly slower than normal, and we can’t promise to hit rush order deadlines. If you have any queries about deadlines, just say hello in the chatbox, or email us on [email protected]

One final thing – it’s known that Covid-19 can live for up to 24 hours on cardboard, and it’s thought that the same is true of cotton and polyester. It’s highly unlikely that it would have picked anything up from your delivery driver, as they are all taking good precautions. But if you would rather be safe, then set your delivery to one side for a day.

Whether you sell directly to your fans, or use them as incentives for a crowdfunding campaign, you should be making £10/$10 per t-shirt.

Our CEO is a huge fan of the satirical comedy podcast, The Bugle. So much so that he’s been listening to it since its inception in 2007. He still fondly remembers long-forgotten features as “Hotties From History”, and “The Audio Cryptic Crossword”. He would gleefully listen to it as respite from the crappy job he was forced to take before starting his next business.

Want to know a little more about our background in Cardiff?

Back in 2011, operating out of a tiny warehouse in south Wales, we set up our first t-shirt printing companies, Dizzyjam and Cotton Cart. At the start, we’d stay up late at night printing one-off, bespoke t-shirts for the music industry. Since then, we’ve expanded, improved and moved multiple times, and now we’re selling hundreds of thousands of bespoke, one-off shirts worldwide.

But our customers wanted more. They loved our one-off shirts. But they kept asking us “Can I order 20 t-shirts? 50? 250?” The requests kept coming in. So we took our knowhow and we decided the best way to help them was to build Ramp Tshirts – the simplest, friendliest custom printing service in the world, HQ’d here in Cardiff, and the simply the best way to order screen printed t-shirts and hoodies for teams and events.

Tote bags

Classic conference tote

Our tote bags are great for promotional use. They’re functional, strong, and ideal for conference giveaways or daily use. The great thing about tote bags is that they can be used every single day, and don’t get hidden behind jackets and coats, as t-shirts sometimes can. So your logo and design will be loud and proud!

There’s not much else to say about these, other than the facts that they’re 100% cotton canvas, approx 38 x 42cm (15 x 16 inches) and we love them!

Fashion tote

This tote is thicker, bigger, and is widely loved by higher end brands who want their bags to be seen every single day. We’ve seen people use these for everything from shopping, to carrying their laptop and wallet every day, to moving house!

The black one looks amazing with a strong white design on it, for example!
