Not only that, but these keychains are extremely practical. As one happy customer wrote in a review, “They have come in handy when we go to jobs that have confined spaces. And personally, it really helps out at home and other places. The light rays are great!” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

  1. It’s important to select a promotional product that fits the brand. It should cater to the needs of the target audience and be something that they’d actually use. B2C products are typically different than B2B.
