Printed Rulers

Promotional rulers - the obvious brand promoters for school, university or office!

Practical rulers to promote your brand!

Promotional giftss, whatever they are, can promote a brand very effectively. For example, if you wear a shirt with a business' name or logo on it, people will want to know more about it and even use its services. Sometimes the product will be something everyone uses, like promotional pens or printed bottle opener keyrings, and sometimes it will cover a specific demographic, like lighters or pocket knives. Naturally, you can be creative with your promotional products and pick something unexpected, like promotional stress balls. Or you can stick to practical choices and go with printed mugs or branded power banks. However, some businesses use promotional rulers, featuring their logos printed on them.

The question then becomes "why would anyone use a ruler as a promotional product?" And when compared to other products, you can see why it might seem like a bad choice. People use pens more often, as well as lighters. Shirts and promotional umbrellas are something a person can use every single day, and stress balls are fun and interesting for both kids and adults. Even plush toys can sell a brand better than a promotional ruler potentially could. So why even opt for them? Why choose to promote your business via a plastic tool for drawing straight lines? Read on and you will find out.


Plastic rulers have a practical use both in the office and educational environments

1. Promotional rulers have a practical use

As stated earlier, not many people will use a ruler as often as they would a pen or a pencil. But that doesn't mean that they're useless. In fact, people of different backgrounds can use rulers for different things. A mathematician, for example, will use it for his or her job. Schools can buy them for their children as back to school promotions and they are also highly popular as University promotional products or students. Clothing designers, architects, and artists, in general, will also use them heavily. After all, anyone who works with pens or pencils will eventually need to draw a straight line.

But promotional rulers are used outside of these areas as well. Every office worker will have at least one ruler in their stationery drawer or on their desk. Rulers are also a product that gets passed around a lot. Normally people don't carry it with them everywhere like they might do with a pen. So in an office environment, a good ruler becomes an object that most people end up borrowing or lending. This practice makes a printed ruler a powerful tool. It will literally be passed around by dozens of people, giving them the chance to see your brand name and message. You have potential customers in that small environment alone.

And speaking of environments, if a child picks up a promotional ruler from a school trip or excursion, a parent can see it and do his or her research on the company which made it. That right there is another micro-marketing ecosystem.


Custom printed rulers come in all sizes

2. Promotional rulers come in all sizes

Whenever a businessman needs a promotional product, they require enough space to send their message to potential customers. With that in mind, each product can carry a different message of varying size. Pens, for example, have very little room, so a business name or a logo usually ends up on it. A shirt, on the other hand, has a lot of room for more than that.

In that sense, a custom branded ruler is a great choice. You can literally choose rulers of any size to promote your brand. Small, slim rulers can be good for just the basic company data - name, address, phone number and/or e-mail address, maybe even the company website. A large ruler, like the ones used in construction or architectural planning, has even more room to work with. With these rulers, you can print out entire logos, company names in big, bold fonts, and even place on a strap line of your business. It's a great budget friendly way to advertise, and it can be a creative way to do so. For example, if you're a business that sells five different ruler sizes with your brand, customers will find you interesting. Moreover, they will want to buy your products or use your services.


Printed rulers come in all colours

3. Promotional rulers come in all colours

Normally a promotional ruler works best if it's transparent, with its numbers and the company logo printed in black or another striking to colour to ensure that it remains prominent. These rulers are perfect for professionals such as designers and graphic artists, as they can see what they're doing while they're drawing that all important straight line.

But if you're targeting kids, you might want to think in terms of multicolour rulers, flexible rulers or even custom shaped rulers to inject more interest and a touch of fun! A child will more likely buy an orange or red ruler rather than a transparent one. The best thing to do is to match the colour of the ruler to the design of your logo or your brand in general. Coca-Cola, for example, will have red and white rulers, which incidentally have now become collectors items in their own right! Michelin might print out a few white and blue ones. Therefore, stylize your rulers and watch them sell like hotcakes.

Bear in mind, just because you have coloured rulers, it doesn't mean they have to be a solid colour. You can have see-through rulers that are blue, red, green, orange, violet or really any other colour. Make sure to have a variety of them, though. The best thing to do is to sell or distribute both types of rulers, be they transparent or solid in colour. Combine that with the ruler sizes and you will have the perfect promotional product.


Branded rulers are manufactured in many materials<

4. Promotional rulers are manufactured in many different materials

Most of the time, you will want a plastic ruler. They are easy to carry, lightweight and take up little room. Not to mention that they're also cheaper and easier to replace. However, depending on your business, you can also have magnetic or even sustainable wooden rulers. Wooden rulers can be sturdier and harder than plastic ones. However, with a wooden ruler, you have a sense of antiquity, a feeling of using something old and reliable. You can also engrave your logo into them as opposed to printing it. That way you will have unique promotional rulers that everyone would want to buy.

Metal rulers are largely used by construction workers and architects. They are harder to print, but also harder to break and more durable. If your business allows it, print a batch of metal rulers, especially slim ones. They look stylish and can give the user a confidence boost.

Naturally, you can choose only one of these options for your rulers, but you can even go with all three. Variety will make people think you're willing to experiment and expand. Don't miss that opportunity.


Rulers have a unique ability to reach a wide audience of all ages

5. Promotional rulers reach a wide audience spanning all ages

As we mentioned earlier, both adults and children use rulers. It's a product that everyone can pick up and work with. Children will use them for their schoolwork (and homework), while adults will have a more business-oriented use for them. For children you can even opt for custom printed puzzle rulers which feature an integrated puzzle to and an additional element of interest. The best thing to do here is to aim for several different designs, depending on who the customer is. Fun, light-hearted designs will work with children and serious, functional ones for adults.


Versatile giveaways to suit almost any promotion - both multipurpose and practical fun!

6. Promotional rulers are multipurpose and practical fun

This might surprise you, but a promotional ruler can, indeed, be used for other things, not just drawing straight lines. Oftentimes people will use a ruler to point at something on a chalkboard. Smaller rulers, for example a 15cm ruler on the other hand, can make for good bookmarks. And let's not forget children - there isn't a child alive that hasn't used a ruler as a makeshift sword or gun! So don't be afraid to play into that - you can promote your brand, but design the ruler so that it can have several purposes. For instance, a bookmarker option on the opposite side to the digits will make that ruler stand out. Of course, a dull serrated edge will be fun for kids, as they could draw squiggly lines for fun. Experiment with the rulers, and you'll get a bigger customer base willing to buy them.

We had previously ordered with GoPromotional before, because of this we only had to send a quick email requesting a repeat order. Within a week we received our Promotional key rings by post. I would be happy to do repeat business with this company as all correspondence was dealt with in a efficient & timely manner.

Very efficient once order was placed and quality of goods was very good. They turned the order around very quickly for us. Only disappointment was that they were out of stock for the cups we wanted but our time frame for turnaround was tight and the alternatives provided worked well. Could also have looked at promoting the two colours in our logo better. Overall though I would recommend them to others.

This is an excellent company. Right from the first inquiry they were helpful and very efficient. The bags are just what we wanted, the artwork perfect, and the price very competitive. I cannot recommend GoPromotional highly enough.

I placed an order for notepads and pens, they looked great and arrived just in time! My only criticism is the lack of personal touch with the service e.g. use of template emails in the correspondence from the sales team. I never heard back on a few requests or there was a slow response. But overall, pleased with the quality of product.

If I was very picky I might complain about the lead time, which was a few months. But in all fairness the lead time was made clear from the very beginning. The process of getting my visuals put together was very helpful, the staff I dealt with by email were friendly and forthcoming with information and the product is absolutely spot on. Everyone loves our plastic free jute bags. I am sure I will be ordering from GoPromotional again at some point and would definitely recommend.

I researched several companies before settling on GoPromotional. From the first phone-call I found them to be polite, helpful and willing to find a creative solution to my requirement without fussing. Emily managed my order and saw it through to completion in such a friendly and professional way. I would thoroughly recommend this business.
