5 Ways to Take Corporate Swag to the Next Level

There are plenty of great applications for custom corporate swag that have nothing to do with giving out unique employee appreciation gifts or keeping your employees’ morale high. For example, your company might have many different business units, including one that attends conferences or one that runs an e-commerce store to reach your most valuable customers.

Luckily for you, Social Imprints can handle all of these aforementioned needs and more. Here are five of the best ways to take your corporate swag to the next level!

Live Screen Printing

Live screen printing is a bunch of fun for your entire staff, and it makes a great morale-building activity! And you don’t have to look any further for a solution: Social Imprints has all the amenities you need to host your very own company-wide live screen printing event! Doing a live screen printing party is the perfect way to get employees (and even your customers) involved in the process of custom-printing your corporate swag.

Social Imprints has a 25,000 square foot facility in San Francisco that makes a perfect getaway spot for your whole company, but if you aren’t willing to bring your entire company to our facility, fear not! We can bring all of our equipment and materials to you via our fully mobile Social Imprints van, complete with its own operational printing press. Yeah, it’s as cool as it sounds.

With our live screen printing service, you can get your whole team motivated and excited to burn screens, mix inks, and print their very own custom t-shirts. Especially after a year without live events, a live screen printing party is a great way to bring your employees together to celebrate some company-wide wins!

If you’re hosting a conference or a trade show, or if you’re attending one with your company, you’re going to want to come armed with your company’s custom-branded corporate swag. How else are you planning to make that personal impact when you meet a potential customer or client?

Social Imprints offers an industry-leading array of full-service products that will make your upcoming conference or trade show swag shine. We offer everything from custom swag to e-commerce web stores, on-site fulfillment staffing, signage, merchandising support, and point of sale solutions/support. We also manage the logistics, including any merchandise that needs to be returned after your event.

You can make your corporate swag giveaways as sophisticated as you’d like. We even offer event QR and virtual redemption codes that give you much more control over who participates in giveaway events.

Best of all, since we can provide a mobile print shop via our Live Screen Printing service, the helpful staff at Social Imprints can join you in your booth to create a one-of-a-kind experience and assist you in guiding it to success. We’re with you every step of the way, and we know together we can create a conference experience that attendees won’t soon forget.

Onboarding and Employee Recognition

Are you onboarding new employees or a new employee group? Likewise, do you want to publicly highlight your top performers without tempting the risk of creating a toxic work environment for the rest of your crew? If the answer is “yes” to either of these questions, you should look to Social Imprints for your onboarding and employee recognition needs.

Social Imprints specializes in building microsites and creating custom company swag to recognize and reward exceptional employees and welcome new employees during the onboarding process. You can take an even closer look at Social Imprint’s Onboarding & Employee Recognition services at that link!

E-Commerce & Web Stores

One of Social Imprints’ largest businesses is its e-commerce stores. That may at first seem like a strange offering for a company that’s built entirely around eco-friendly custom-printed swag that exists solely in the physical world, but think about how much value your custom-printed corporate swag has for your customers! Merchandise is a huge revenue stream for many businesses, and Social Imprints currently facilitates over 60 online company swag stores for both domestic and international clients.

We offer E-Commerce services in several distinct flavors:

Retail Web Stores allow you to make a profit selling your branded merchandise directly to your most qualified fans and customers, and Social Imprints can assist you with every step of that process. We print your merchandise, build your webstore, design a front-end from which your customers can fill their orders, pick and pack your orders for you, and we even handle the shipping!

Perhaps you’d like to sell corporate swag to your employees at a discounted rate? No problem! We can even design and set up your password-protected Corporate Web Store for you. You maintain total control over your products, spending limits, and the overall look and feel of the site. We take care of the rest!

If your company is leaner than other major retailers, you can instead go with a Department Microsite that operates similarly to a Corporate Web Store but is much more compact. It can also be used for other things, such as onboarding, recruitment, special events, and pre-order distribution.

We even offer Coupa & Salesforce Integration, which allows you to manage your expenditures and procurement.

Retail Pop-up Shops

If E-Commerce isn’t quite your speed, or you’re looking to target a local audience in a very particular way -- such as engaging them directly at a popular event -- you’re absolutely in luck. Social Imprints can do all the heavy lifting required to design, create, and set up your very own Retail Pop-up Shop.

Normally, there are tons of hurdles to setting up a pop-up shop. You need to go through the hassle of creating your products, setting up your point of sale system, figuring out your merchandising and signage, staffing your shop, and making sure it all gets managed properly. Social Imprints takes care of every single one of those steps, making it way easier and more convenient for you to get your pop-up shop operational.
