If you’ve wondered whether custom printed key chains generate business for the companies that offer them, the answer is yes. Like other giveaway items, such as promotional bags, pens, and pen drives, the information recorded on custom key chains serves as a constant advertisement that repeatedly gets noticed by those that use them. Yet, despite the usually straightforward nature of key chains, companies that would use them as promotional items have some decisions to make concerning the level of promotion that they accomplish in terms of visibility and lifespan.
Six Types of Custom Printed Key Chains and What They Offer
Trying to identify every key-chain style would be like trying to identify every bumper sticker style. But there are eight types of custom printed key-chains commonly seem among promotional items. Below, we examine these types to see which ones offer your company the most promotion for the money.
Bottle Opener Style
These come in vibrant colors with your company information printed on top. Their visibility is average but their durability is supreme. If your clients are the outdoor type or perform a utilitarian line of work, bottler opener key-chains could be a good choice.
Carabiner Style acrylic keychain
These durable key chains are best given to clients that have a direct use for them, such as maintenance companies or other businesses that require a large set of keys that can be easily accessed. The downside of these chains is that your company information isn’t prominently displayed.
Floating Foam Style
These have an ovular piece of thick, brightly colored foam that presents your information on both sides. Their upside is that they’re easy to see. They’re downside is that they get dirty easily and can make your pants pocket tight.
Flash Light Style
These have high visibility because their novelty means that people use them on a regular basis. But once the bulb burns out, so does your information.
Tool Style (i.e. tape measure, tire gauge, screw driver, etc.)
As with carabiner key-chains, tool key-chains are a good choice for companies whose line of work deals with tools, but are also novel enough to be appreciated by a variety of clients. Your information visibility depends on the tool in question.
Custom Plastic Style
Traditional plastic key chains last forever, and they display your information using an easily visible color scheme. A classic case of less equals more; these key chains are still the most preferred type.
