Scientists and sociologists will declare that the culture of giving business promotional products is as nearly old as the history of humanity. The original form of donating company promotional items would date back to the time when trade developed. Already in those days, gifts were a natural part of business. Most probably, the custom is much older. Considering that chimpanzees give food to other chimpanzees who weren’t part of their group may indicate that gift-giving already existed before the ascent of man. Other animals too such as cats, dolphins, penguins, even birds and insects will demonstrate a heart of gold. Are they truly altruistic? No, we must admit that just like humans, they let themselves be guided by self-interest.
Historical sources show numerous examples of gifts between rulers and conquerors, usually for trading purposes. In 757, Emperor Constantine V of Byzantium gave Pippin III of Francia a mechanical organ, and Abul-Abbas was a white elephant, given by Caliph Harun al-Rashid to the Carolingian emperor Charlemagne.
Just Like Organs and Elephants, the Branded Corporate Gifts from Paddywack Promotional Products Stick
The Australasian Promotional Products Association (APPA) of which we are members, has researched the promotional merchandise industry in our country and New Zealand. Their report demonstrates that a recipient’s impression of a company is usually more positive after receiving a gift. Contrary to what sceptics think, many people will use the item they receive, in some cases even daily. Most important of all, approximately 75% recall the name advertised on the product and approximately 50% will do business with the company.
