First of all, you need to consider the purpose these products will serve. Are you choosing promotional mugs that will be given only to a chosen few, or are you trying to get your message out there?

The Order I placed arrived outside the maximum delivery expected date of 19th Dec. (It arrived at 4pm on 20th Dec. I required them for a Trade show at 9am on this same date, 50 miles away.). I contacted Go Promotional in November when I placed the order to ensure delivery would be on time for the show. I was assured it would be and that it might arrive towards the latter end of the expected delivery dates, however it was still late. What was worse was the subsequent invoice to state the items were delivered on the 19th. The day before they we actually delivered. I had been in contacted with the Courier service daily in the run up to delivery and they only arrived in Dublin Port on this date, It still had to go to central processing and then get distributed regionally, which to be fair, the courier service did in a very prompt manner. Luckily I have another trade show that I can use the stock for in early spring. However I was left very frustrated from the lack of communication by GoPromotional. I had to source answers and the company was not proactive to the myself in communicating their timeline /production/delivery issues. had they done this, I could have at least sourced alternative products.
