What color is your business?

Science has long been able to prove that colors can evoke emotion, inspire people, and a new study by Wohlfarth and Sam proves that color can actually affect people physically. Determine the message your business is trying to send and relate it to a color scheme. Here are some examples:

Green- Healthy Lifestyle
Black - Sophistication
Red & Yellow - Attention Grabbers

Start a color scheme for your business and see how fast people associate that color with you! (Think UPS, Google, McDonalds ) Farfromboring has done recent self-promos in an array of bright neon colors and we have gotten a fantastic response!

Click here to see what we suggest.

At farfromboring.com we can find the right item in the right color that will perfectly fit your needs. Contact us today at 866-751-PROMO or email sales@farfromboring.com

I Gave her my Heart, She Gave me a Pen

» Posted to Promotional Pens

A beautiful sonnet, a heartfelt love note, a letter from an overseas soldier, who says a pen isn’t romantic? Could any of these things exist without one? Okay, so the popularity of the written word has decreased in the recent decade. But the truth is- writing instruments still make up 10% of industry sales. That is second only to wearables. Pens still remain the instrument to learning, communicating and documenting. Everyone is regularly exposed to a pen. So, why do they make such great Promotional Products? Because pens, more then any other item can GROW LEGS!!! Not literally. But a pen has the ability to travel from desk to desk, person to person, counter to counter- you get the point. The imprinted message on the pen is seen by an endless number of people. That is what a promotional product should create, exposure.

Helix promotional pen

But in this evolutionary age, how do you find the right pen? Price is not always the best way to gauge quality. Personal preference is always hard to determine because so many people get to use the pen. A pen should be comfortable in the hand and write smoothly. Imprints should appear clear and meet logo standards. But the key to buying the best pen comes with experience. Finding companies that have a good reputation and who stand by their products. The other benefit to pens is in perception. It is easy to create a high perceived value in pen promotions. Quality, weight, longevity all contribute to easy advertising.

And how the pen has evolved! With the advancement of technology, it’s not only the cell phone that has all the techie gadgets. Flash Drives, UPC coding, digital recording, casino and board games, laser pointers, the list goes on and on.

While Farfromboring Promotions can not help you improve your handwriting, we can help you find the best pen for your budget!

Advertising on a Tight Operating Budget

» Posted to Promotional Products

We all know that advertising is necessary for any business to succeed. You must get your company’s message out there and to the right people. And for most start-ups, small businesses, and underfunded non-profits, hiring an advertising agency and public relations team is just simply not in the budget. Don’t worry, because even if hiring the same firm that has created all of those Geico commercials that everyone seems to know and love of is not an option for you, it doesn’t mean that effective advertising is unattainable. Hardly! Promotional products/ad specialties are an excellent way to advertise your business on a tight budget! Circulate your company’s information and reach your target audience. Farfromboring.com can help.

According PPAI, a recent study indicates that 76.1% of respondents could recall the advertiser’s name on a promotional product that they had received in the past 12 months. In addition, 75.4% of respondents said they kept their promotional product because it was useful. Allen and Goel Marketing Company agrees that promotional products are the way to go by stating that they are an excellent way to make certain that “a bulk of your advertising dollars are considered an investment not an expense.”

Cost effective marketing and promotion is just a mouse click or a phone call away. Speak with a Farfromboring.com rep today and start your new business off on the right foot or rejuvenate your old business with new, fresh, and exciting opportunities.

Promotional Mailers Go Green

This brand new item is one of the most exciting and innovative ideas Farfromboring has seen lately. Don't worry about excess packaging with this tote, it takes the place of a box, mailer, or envelope. Just place your item inside the tote, seal it and ship it! When your customer receives the item they simply cut the top off, turn the bag inside out, and there is your logo on a reusable cotton tote bag. This eco friendly mailer creates no garbage or waste. Fill it with your company's catalog or send your clients a gift in this promotional tote bag mailer. You can also custom print on the outside of the mailer. This conversation piece will surely get the word out about your business and will let your clients know that you are a proud supporter of the eco friendly movement.
