After reviewing other posts on my website, you may have made the decision to use promotional water bottles as a way to promote the products and services that your business has to offer. Now, you need to make a number of decisions. One of these decisions regards what type of material your bottles will be made of. In general you have plastic, aluminum, stainless steel, and glass from which to choose. Each material has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. In this article, I will discuss some of the reasons why you should consider using plastic promotional water bottles for your business instead of promotional water bottles that are made from other materials.
You Can Save Money With Plastic Promotional Water Bottles
Perhaps, the biggest reason why you should give serious consideration to the use of plastic promotional water bottles is the fact that plastic water bottles are almost always less expensive than bottles that are made from other materials. You can often get plastic promotional water bottles made for your business that cost less than one dollar apiece. At the same time, water bottles that are made from either glass or metal may run you up to ten dollars apiece. If you need to get the word out about your business while still being able to cut costs in any way possible, then plastic promotional water bottles can serve as a cost-effective way to promote your business.
Short Lead Times
If you have a trade show coming up in the very near future, and you’ve just realized that you’re low on those promotional water bottles that you like to hand out, don’t panic. This is because plastic promotional water bottles usually have much shorter lead times than other water bottles. You can often have an order of plastic bottles finished and shipped to your place of business within a week. Promotional sports water bottles that are made from other materials often take significantly longer to produce. So, if you need bottles, and you need them right away, then you should really consider plastic promotional water bottles.
Plastic Promotional Water Bottles Can Give You More Design Flexibility
Another neat thing about plastic water bottles is that they can give you more options when you’re coming up with a design for your bottle. For instance, you can have plastic promotional water bottles made to be collapsible, so that they can be folded up and kept in a purse or a bag while the user is on the go. Aluminum, stainless steel, and glass promotional water bottles don’t come with this feature. Other neat features that you can get with plastic promotional water bottles include molded grips and handles, and curves that help the user to hold onto the bottle, even on a cold winter day. You can even have squeeze bottles that are made from plastic. While some of these features might be present with other bottles, plastic water bottles generally give you more latitude when it comes to selecting a design that will work for you.
Plastic Water Bottles Weigh Less Than Alternatives
Now, it’s time to put yourself in the shoes of the user. After all, when you hand these bottles out at trade shows, you need to make sure that the people to whom you hand these bottles are going to use them. Otherwise, you’re just throwing money down the drain. One big advantage that plastic promotional water bottles have over the metallic and glass counterparts is that the plastic bottles weigh significantly less. This can be very important if the potential user is a construction worker who constantly has to carry the bottle around with him from one job to the next. It also matters if the potential user is a lady who is always on the go, and needs a drink bottle that she can carry in her purse. Plastic water bottles are best suited for these kinds of situations, because metal and glass promotional water bottles generally weigh 5-10 times more than plastic water bottles, sometimes making them cumbersome to those who use them.
Plastic Water Bottles Are Less Likely To Break
One of the more obvious advantages of using plastic water bottles is that they are much less likely to break than glass promotional water bottles. Glass water bottles will almost certainly shatter if they are dropped onto a hard surface. Some users might actually drop these glass bottles before they even get to use them. This translates into less public exposure for your business. With plastic promotional water bottles, you don’t have to worry about this problem.
You can have your plastic promotional water bottles made transparent, allowing the user to be able to see just how much fluid is in the bottle without him having to remove the top and look inside. This feature is important to many users. Stainless steel promotional water bottles, and aluminum promotional water bottles don’t come with this feature, often leaving the user to guess how much fluid is inside. Of course, in these instances, the user will often guess wrong, making him wish that he had a clear bottle.
Lower susceptibility to breakage, more design flexibility, lower manufacturing costs, shorter lead times, transparency, and lighter weight are all reasons why you should consider using plastic promotional water bottles as a way to promote the things that your business has to offer.
