How to Add A Logo To A Product – A Complete Guide

Check out our new guide on adding logos to your promotional products. Find useful tips to make your promotional items stand out.

Every effective corporate gifting program starts by customizing the right promotional items with logos. 

Whether it’s for nurturing customers or welcoming a brand-new employee to the team, you can’t overestimate the power of high-quality custom gifts bearing your beautiful branding and logos!

Here’s the question: For those starting out, how can you add a logo to a product?

We’re here with a couple of options. Below, we’ll highlight the differences between choosing a local shop option and our one-stop shop for promotional items with logos.

New call-to-action

Finding a local shop to add logos for you

Your first option for creating promotional items with logos is to find a local shop to print the logo for you. This option can be viable if you have a reputable local shop nearby. 

First, you’ll need to find products for adding logos. For example, a set of t-shirts or ball caps. It’s also important to ensure that your local shop can add the logo to your specific product—some shops will have a specific set of products they can work with. Apparel, stationery, and drinkware are common examples that local shops and businesses can work with.

From there, you’ll need to send an appropriately formatted logo for the shop to use. Consult your shop to determine which format works best for them (PDF, PNG, etc.)

Last, you’ll need to choose an imprint area for the shop to use. This is where your logo will be printed, whether on the front of a shirt, the middle of a cap, or on two sides of a mug. 

This route can certainly work for those who have a great shop close by, but it adds a few extra steps—especially when compared to ordering from a one-stop shop online. You’ll need to source the product, wait for the products to arrive, send them to the shop with a logo and instructions, and then wait another indefinite amount of time to receive your swag.

Luckily, you have an alternative.
