Journal and Notebook – Buyers Guide
Last Updated on April 4, 2022 by Rachel Leone
Branded journals and custom logo notebooks are popular giveaways!
Popular with my education clients as giveaways for students and a great alternative to tee-shirts at conferences, custom logo notebooks are a trendy promotion! Available in many shapes, colors, and sizes and all customizable with your logo.
Are notebook giveaways a good way to market your business?
Yes! Everyone can use a notebook! Many of the promotional notebooks our clients purchase and give away are used for months. Custom logo notebooks are always a trendy item at tradeshows and conferences and a great way to increase brand awareness.
Below are a few tips and ideas for selecting your perfect notebook!
- Choose the right audience. As with all promotions, knowing your audience is critical. If your audience is ultra tech-savvy, maybe you impress them with a Rocketbook? For everyone else, notebooks are desirable and sought-after promotional items. For your notebook giveaway, consider your recipient's expectations. Executives will expect a much nicer notebook than students or conference attendees.
- Ideal for informational events. We all know that attendees at conferences, meetings, and info sessions aren't always prepared to take notes. Handing out branded notebooks (with promotional pens) is a great way to make a positive brand impression.
- One-size-fits-all. We all learn to write from an early age, which means custom logo notebooks are useful for every demographic. Promotional notebooks are an excellent alternative to conference tee-shirts because you don't have to worry about sizes.
- Notebooks fill a need. Branded journals are ideal for back-to-school conferences and meetings because your recipients need them. And even if someone has a notebook, eventually they'll run out of paper and need a new one.
- They are reasonably priced. We carry expensive MoleSkin notebooks; however, many custom logo notebooks and journals are affordable.
