Some people might think that all beach balls are the same. But with one look at the large amount of beach ball giveaways available on the Web, it's clear that there are actually many, many different options. From color and style to size and shape, there are several ways in which you can customize your beach balls.
The goal of this buying guide is to help you choose a printed beach ball that suits your needs. Ask yourself the following questions and you'll be able to find one easily!
What's your style?
Beach balls come in a variety of colors, designs and patterns. The type of beach ball you'll see most commonly is a classic multicolor giveaway. It usually features three colors -- blue, red and yellow -- with white alternating in-between each. But there are many other looks you can go with in order to really stand out.
For example, some printed beach balls come with a cool translucent effect! Whether you're looking for a multicolor ball or one that's solid, it can be made see-through to help your printed information get noticed. There's even a clear globe beach ball that can be customized with your company's name and logo -- how cool is that?
Two-tone beach balls are ideal for companies and organizations that want to keep it simple. If you're deciding which colors to go with, it's a smart idea to stick with the colors that already represent your brand; refer to your logo to see which colors your company uses.
There are also sport-themed beach balls that make ideal handouts for teams and stadiums, and USA-themed ones that can help make your next Independence Day party a blast.
If you have trouble finding useful information about your awareness event, look online. Often times a sponsoring company or organization will provide resources for helping to get the word out there. For instance, the National Women's History Project, which sponsors National Women's History Month, offers tons of ideas for celebrating the national observance on its Web site.
The best way to spread the word about your awareness initiative is to distribute awareness giveaways printed with your logo. Studies show that these handouts have a huge impact on recipients; people will not only join you in supporting your cause, but they will also remember your company fondly for years to come.
After a certain size?
For one reason or another, you might need a beach ball that's a particular size. For instance, if you have a lot of information to print on your giveaway, a six-inch ball probably will not do. But a smaller ball can be imprinted with a simple logo or company name and used as a giveaway for children's birthday parties, trick-or-treaters, and more. Luckily beach ball handouts come in a variety of sizes, from six inches in diameter to 36!
If your products will be used for a specific reason -- like a game of beach volley ball -- then a 24-inch ball will best suit your needs. Size doesn't always matter when it comes to purchasing your beach balls, but if it does to you you'll be happy to know that most sizes are available.
In a rush?
You might be making a last-minute purchase for printed beach balls. And if that's the case, don't worry at all! Some items can be rushed so that you won't miss your deadline.
However, not all beach balls are available for rush production. Therefore, if you need your giveaways by a certain date, start by looking at the products that can be rushed. That way, you can narrow down your choices from the get-go. Pages for items that can be rushed will feature a swiveling icon indicating how fast production can be completed.
No extra cash for shipping?
While giving out promotional products is certainly one of the most cost-effective ways to advertise your brand, sometimes you need a little more of a break. If that's the case, you're in luck; some printed beach balls are eligible for free shipping. Again, if you'd like to avoid the cost of shipping all together, it's recommended that you jump straight to browsing the free shipping beach balls. We know you'll find a printed beach ball you'll love!
Want a truly customized beach ball?
If you're searching for a very specific look, you'll be happy to know that we can custom-make beach balls to meet your needs. Everything from the color to the shape and size can be made just for you. So if you haven't found a product that fits your company or organization's image, there's no need to stress! Note: Fully customized beach balls will require a longer lead time.
When it comes to shopping for printed beach balls, you don't have to feel overwhelmed. Once you ask yourself the above questions, ascertaining which giveaway is right for you will be easy. Remember, beach balls aren't just for the summer -- you can distribute these fun handouts year-round for brilliant branding that will put a smile on your customers' faces.
