More people are taking advantage of our Swag Distribution options to send gifts directly to their employees and customers wherever they are now. All you need is their contact information.

Or send a thank-you gift or promotional item after the event to help keep your brand on their mind or to help jumpstart your next conversation and touchpoint.

Send Swag that Will be Remembered

Above are just a few ideas on how you can use swag to connect with your employees, customers and prospects, but really the sky’s the limit. Any product you order on can be distributed directly to any list of addresses you provide. So be creative and send a promotional product that will help you stand out, improve brand awareness and connect.

However, keep in mind that when mailing someone a promotional item, quality and usability matter more than ever. You don’t want to send something that will end up in a junk drawer or, worse, in the trash. Pick an item that the recipient will love. If choosing apparel, be conscious of sizing and other factors. If choosing drinkware, pick something functional and cool that the receiver will want to keep on their desk.
