How to Order Promotional Water Bottles

by Derek VanDyke 12. July 2013 09:42

Promotional water bottles are a great way to showcase your brand or image. Since 2007, Green Benefits  has been a leader in supplying promotional water bottles to schools, teams, companies, nonprofits and more. Whether you are hosting an event or looking for a great promotional give-way, custom water bottles make a lasting statement that will promote your brand or event for years to come.

When choosing your promotional water bottles it is important to consider your goals and objectives to maximize your return on investment. If chosen carefully, your choice of promotional water bottles will effectively showcase your brand or image for several years. 

Tips for Ordering your Promotional Water Bottles

Price vs. Value - When ordering promotional products it is important to consider the overall value of your purchase. Often our clients are looking for the lowest cost custom water bottles to maximize their purchasing power. Before you make your purchase carefully consider your goals. Sometimes spending a little bit more will greatly increase the overall value of your campaign. For example, a higher quality and/or unique water bottle will be used for years as a personal hydration tool which results in more brand exposure to the end user and everyone around them. 

Graphic Design & Imprint Area - Great design will make your promotional water bottles standout! Consider multiple imprint colors or full wrap imprint options for your promotional water bottles. Many custom water bottles do not offer the ability for a full wrap design option. Start with your design and messaging then choose a bottle which will best promote your brand. The team at Green Benefits specializes in providing multiple bottle options to help you achieve your budget and promotional goals.

Bottle Material & Functionality - The good news is that you have more choices in custom water bottles than ever before. The bad news is that it is often difficult to determine what bottle is best for your campaign. Many groups prefer the feel and quality of stainless steel water bottles, while other like the lightweight and unique design features found in high quality BPA Free plastic water bottles. Both options offer great choices for your promotional water bottle needs. You should also consider name brand bottles like Nalgene and Camelbak which can often add value to your water bottle purchase. 

Made in the USA - Today there are many great bottles made in the USA. Your selection will be limited to mostly BPA Free Plastic bottle. The modern plastic bottle is now considered safe and is back in favor with consumers.

Consider Promotional Water Bottles for Your Next Campaign!

A high quality custom water bottle can benefit your promotional campaign. Besides being a sustainable promotional give-away, promotional water bottles offer the ability to showcase your brand daily in multiple locations. A well designed and functional water bottle will promote your brand to a wide audience providing an outstanding return on investment. The team at Green Benefits and our friends at Back2Tap offer a wide range of custom promotional water bottles and have the experience to help you choose the best product for your campaign or function.

Great Fundraising Ideas - Part One

by Derek VanDyke 8. July 2013 09:38

The school year is quickly approaching and groups across the country are preparing for their Fall Fundraising Programs. The team at Green Benefits is constantly on the look out for new and sustainable fundraising programs that work. Each week our team will highlight a great fundraising program that will sure to be a hit with your school or group.

Tree Smart Pencil Fundraiser

A few weeks ago we wrote about the Tree Smart brand. This is a great Oregon company that produces pencils and other school supplies from domestic recycled products. We are excited to announce that Green Benefits will be a distributor for the Tree Smart Pencil Fundraising program. This is truly a unique fundraising program that not only will raise money for your school or group, but actively engage your members in the process of recycling.

Here is how it works:

1. Your group will collect enough newspapers to fill one large flat rate priority mail box.

2. Fill the box with clean flat newspapers.

3. Large priority mail flat rate boxes are free online or at the post office. We will email you the pre-paid shipping lable after your order is received. Just print the label and place on top of the box.

4. Your collected newspapers will go to Tree Smarts Oregon facility and turned into recycled newspapers.

5. Each Tree Smart newspaper pencil is printed with your school or organization's logo and text.

6. Your Tree Smart Newspaper pencils are packaged in a 4 pack pencil set with a custom label. Your school or organization's name is printed on the insert label.

7. Each packet of pencils are sold with your school earning funds for each packet sold.

Potential Profit:

In the end your school determines the final sale price. The suggest retail price per 4 pack of custom recycled newsprint pencils is between $2.25 and $3.00 per packet with your cost being $1.25 per package.

Depending the size of your group, your profit could be in the hundreds or thousands of dollars. The Tree Smart Pencil fundraising is perfect for the club looking to raise awareness while raising funds for their group or even an all school fundraiser. Contact our team to learn more about the Tree Smart Pencil fundraising program and we will be more than happy to send you samples of this great product.

Next week we will highlight water bottle fundraising programs brought to you by our friends at Back2Tap.
