Using Custom Imprinted Glow Products to Promote Your Business

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Businesses generally use cups, key chains, pens, etc. as promotional products in their advertising campaigns. Though these products are useful, many people may not like them as they lack creativity and entertaining nature. Custom imprinted glow sticks on the other hand are becoming popular promotional products as they are cheap and attractive.

Glow sticks have wide variety of applications

Since glow sticks are waterproof, windproof, generate negligible heat, inexpensive and easily disposable, they are often used in a variety of applications. They are not only used as party favors in nighttime parties or celebrations. They are also used as:

  • Decorative items in nighttime parties
  • Dancing aids in raves and night clubs
  • Light sources by military forces, divers and campers
  • Fishing lures
  • Preferred light sources during emergencies such as blackouts, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, etc.
  • Incentives in fund raising events

Isn’t it really amazing to know that these little light-ups can have such a wide range of applications? These glow products probably might be the only items which are useful for such diverse nighttime activities.

Can be used to promote your business

Apart from the various applications of glow sticks mentioned above, they can also be used as marketing tools to promote your business. Custom imprinted glow sticks or glow products are quickly gaining popularity compared to traditional marketing channels, such as ads in newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, etc.

You can print your company’s logo, name, address and phone number on glow products and use them as promotional products for your business. By distributing these imprinted products among the target audience, you can educate them about your company’s existence and the kind of business you are in. This is one of the innovative ways of promoting your business.

Great for trade show presentations, or any other event at night

Glow products are great hand–outs to distribute at trade show presentations or any other professional events. Glowing in the dark, these products catch the attention of the people at trade shows or any other event at night. Hence, you can utilize this opportunity to promote your business by capturing the attention of attendees.

Light emitting capability leaves strong impression

Unlike the traditional marketing tools, glow products leave a long lasting impression on the potential customers due to their light emitting nature. Glowing products look very attractive, and when your company’s logo or name gets highlighted with this glow, it will certainly catch the attention of people easily.

Available in different sizes and colors

Glow products are available in different designs, colors, sizes and shapes. You can select a product suitable for your business as a promotional tool. Commonly used glow products for marketing campaigns are glow sticks, necklaces, bracelets, badges, hearts, cups, and balls.

Cost effective method

Business promotional strategies usually involve high budget, but if you choose custom imprinted glow products, you can save a lot. Generally, pricing depends on the product you choose and quantity you order. As business promoting tools are needed in bulk, it is always better to buy them from online stores, as they offer discounts on bulk purchase.

Because of the above mentioned advantages, glow products are becoming popular promotional tools. Hence, we can conclude that these light products are cost effective and efficient marketing channels for your business.

How to Play and Setup Night Golf

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

The days are getting shorter which means less tee time. But fear not fellow golfers, night golf will keep your appetite fulfilled. Wait, did you say night golf?! You heard right, the latest craze on the course is golf played at night. But how you ask?! It’s one of the most unique versions of the sport.

So what does night golf entail? Good question, quite simply, it’s no different than regular golf, but you play in the dark (obviously). Night golf is perhaps misleading since in many places around the world nighttime is still day time. What you need for night golf is the darkness that comes with the night and strategically placed glow sticks to help you see.

You may not think the sticks are bright enough but look to the left for an actual shot of the hole and the glow golf ball used in night golf events. Read on for tips on how to set up your own course!

Add a little excitement to your next golf tournie or just play with some friends (if the course let’s you play late. Here are suggestions on how you can construct your own course or night golf tournament.

Suggestions to Setup a Night Golf Course
First off, you’ll need a box of 6″ glow lights, one green and one orange. Depending on the length of your course and number of hazards will dictate how many you’ll need for each hole.

This guide will begin at the start of each tee and work down towards the pin. Obviously the first step is to illuminate the players and their clubs at the clubhouse before heading out. Players can wear a glow necklaces and two glow bracelets on both wrists. This will ensure you can view players from long distances and avoid beaning someone in the head with your brand new night golf balls.

Next up, give some light to the tools. First off, attach a 4 to 6″ glow stick to your bag to illuminate the clubs. You can attach the stick easily to your towel holder (see right).

If you’re going to drive in the dark at least use lights–that is glow lights. Decorate the golf cart with glow lights and motor around the course in glowing style.

Simple enough so far? Sounds pretty fund? So what’s next? Of course, the balls! The nite golf game is not complete without the balls, perhaps the brightest piece of equipment in your night golf course setup. Get a few glow golf balls for your participants, be sure to remind them to avoid water hazards though! You don’t want to be without a glow ball during a night golf event.

Now you have all the pieces of equipment to start playing. Players are visible, balls are glowing, only thing left to do is chart the course. Let’s start at the beginning. (You may want to drive the course well before your participants arrive to set up, but not too early before the nighttime arrives.)

Illuminate the tee box with 6″ glow sticks to outline the driving area.

If you’re teeing off from 300 yards out you’ll want to gauge the fairway especially if you’re not on your home golf course. Fairways need to be marked and can be done ideally with the use of green glow stick markers.

We recommend 6″ sticks placed every 75 yards or so on both sides. On holes with winding fairways you may have to mark out each bend and directionally place the glow sticks to point the way to the pin.

Green means go, orange means DANGER! Mark your hazards with 6″ orange glow sticks. These are visible from long distances and when done correctly provide a clear outline of what’s ahead.

With fairway and hazards marked off all that’s left is the green. You could mark the green the same way you marked the fairway. Make the game a bit more challenging and only illuminate the flag and pin. The picture on the right depicts the flag with glow sticks, glow necklace coil in the hole, and even the night golf ball ready to drop in the hole.

So how are you supposed to see the pin from afar? As already mentioned use a 22″ glow necklaces and coil it within the hole (see the picture at the right). Decorate the flag stick with glow badges and lights as seen on the right. Heck, you could even use body lights to help identify the hole and the flag.

So that’s it, all the steps necessary to launch your own night golf event. Your very own night golf course guide for your next social. Enjoy a good laugh, raise money for charity, or challenge a few friends with a night golf tournament. Happy swinging and be sure to pick up some novelty beer mugs for the course!

Charity night golf scramble

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Another great fund raiser that is often overlooked is holding a night golf event. Instead of having the traditional charity golf event, you should consider holding a night golf scramble. Night golf is played after dark, using glow sticks as boundary markers. Specially made night golf balls using glow sticks are used in replacement of traditional golf balls. Some organizers place 6″ or 12″ glow sticks every 25-75 yards depending on their budget. Illuminating the green is simple using a 12″ glow stick for the flag stick and either a glow badge or glow necklace coiled up for the cup itself.
