Best of 2011: Promotional Products Edition

Here at Amsterdam Printing, we rely heavily on customer feedback and product reviews to determine how well our products help you promote your business, school or non-profit organization. This feedback is also invaluable to our New Products Team in the design and development of new, exclusive products. As 2011 comes to a close, we’d like to share which products you, our customers, decided were the best promotional products of the year. Here are the top 10 customer favorites, chosen based on a mix of customer feedback and product reviews.

  1. Digital Ceramic Mugs - 4.8/5 stars
    What’s not to love about these mugs?! Tons of clients used our online design studio to upload their pictures, logos, and backgrounds on these mugs. Before the Thanksgiving holiday, we even held a small contest on Facebook and gave away mugs filled with candy.
  2. Latera™ Pens - 4.8/5 stars
    This original design definitely gets attention!  That’s the point of promotional products: you want to stand out and have your name remembered.

    We purchased the Merge Pens in 4 of the 5 colors. Everyone, without exception, that we gave the pens to were very impressed. They are a top quality pen in appearance and workmanship. We are very pleased with the pens and look forward to ordering more promotional items from Amsterdam.
