Looking for ways to stretch your marketing dollar? At EmbroidMe San Diego we have a few suggestions to consider when ordering promotional products.
Plan ahead. The more time you have the more money you can save. As a general rule, allow 4 – 6 weeks for production. If you have several months built into your timeline (90-120 days), we may be able to source your items overseas for a significant cost reduction.
Consider ordering a higher quantity. Price breaks are usually available for larger quantities of promo products as well as screen printing. Combining multiple small orders into a single larger one might save as much as 20%.
Limit your colors. While some promotional products are printed using a 4-color process which simulates full color, the majority use of promotional products are printed using spot colors, or individually applied colors. Your first color is typically included in the price but there is an additional set-up and run charge for every color you add. If you have a logo with several colors, consider printing it in a one color version and save a considerable amount.
