Paperweights – One of the Oldest Promotional Items on Earth

April 7th, 2012

During the early 19th century advertisements were embossed onto glass bottles, most notably medicine bottles. Actually, advertising on glass dates back several thousands years, when Syrian workshops would engrave their company name on their glass. Despite being done to signify which glass workshop created the design (and not to promote another company) it can be classified as advertising one’s brand. The point is crystal and glass paperweights haven’t become a top selling promotional product overnight; they’ve been in existence for a very long time.

Today, the uses for promotional paperweights are varied, although companies primarily use them to commemorate a milestone (such as a business anniversary), completion of a project, highlight a partnership, recognize stand out employees or use them as a business gift. Paperweights are packaged in attractive presentation boxes, thus increasing the perceived value.
