Where do you buy promotional items (giveaways)?

Hi everyone,

For our upcoming product launch we are hoping to give away promotional items at locations all over Switzerland.

Given that we cater to the sports and fitness market, we were thinking along the lines of branded sport-bottles, gym towels, in-ear headphones etc.

There are some good options online (alibaba etc) which are too slow for our planned timeframe (2 weeks). Anybody had a good experience with buying promotional items nearer to home, with a relatively quick turn-around time?

Thanks for the help.

Re: Where do you buy promotional items (giveaways)?

You'll be hard pressed to find a company that can do this in two weeks. I know either a company in China that can do do wrist sweat bands . They are fast but this might be too tight. Or a company here in Vaud that works quickly if they have the items in stock.

Send me a PM with your email address if interested.

In that case is the correct answer of course: Chocolate with customized promotional wrappers.

Over-read that bit... honestly: In 2 weeks will the options be very very limited.

Re: Where do you buy promotional items (giveaways)?

I wound up on a mailing list for Schneider and ended up getting their promotional material catalogue for quite a while. They seem to have towels (in stock) - but not so sure what else
