I do not know where it is but try a search;
it has been discussed about one or two years ago, maybe more?
mouse mats come to mind, so also calenders
Companies have been branding this way for so long that I must assume that it works,
However, I think the product must be qualitative an in constant use, hoever, its a very passive for of advertisng so its probably not the best idea to blow ones advertising budget there :)
For companies with *some* computer-savvy: USB memory sticks -- With your name on them.
Just an idea...
There is one thing your clients will value above all else . . .
Your cell phone number.

Most of those tend to run at $15-$20 per 256GB memory stick depending on the quantity you order, though. You hand someone a $1 customized coffee mug, there's a good chance it's getting used somewhere, and even if it doesn't you're only out a buck. I don't know how I feel about sending a client a $20 USB flash drive only to find out it's going to end up in the same box they store their Christmas decorations in.
I'm interested in knowing if anyone here has purchased promotional items for their clients, there was an older thread about how this is a good practice, but there were no specifics on what people found to be effective gifts.
I might be among very few but we do not charge for hosting the sites we develop.
is that considered as promotional?
I can tell that everyone likes it :)

Not in the sense I'm talking about. People rarely think about their site's hosting plan, whether paid or free, even if they appreciate the fact that it's free. But if they have a clock sitting on their desk or a shelf in their office that they see on a daily basis, they're more likely to remember your firm if someone they know mentions that they're interested in getting a website.
I got a real nice coaster once it had metal and leather on it. I still have the coaster but the company went out of business.

You know why they went out of business? Splurging on leather coasters rather than pens. They should have stuck to coffee mugs.
I have an idea,
Send your “propaganda” printed on a nice heavy stock with four or six, eight quarters; inlaid or hold with a plastic shrink
“… for park meters…
While the clock is ticking we work hard to promote your products” :)
Good idea! You could also use one of those cheap digital
read outs set to the customers time zone.
Pens that actually work well - so people keep them around for awhile and think nice thoughts about you when they use them.
Decent pens with replacable ink cartridge-whatevers. So the client can keep and continue to use the nice pen long after the original supply of ink runs out.
