HELP! My client needs something high-end!
Having a client who is being picky about having the nicest drinkware possible is a good problem to have for your bottom line, but can be a pain. To deal with such a client, going as expensive as possible is always an option, but Mahre offered another suggestion: Don't worry about price, worry about adding value instead.
"It is not just about price that makes an item impactful or valuable, it's 'added value,'" he said. He noted techniques, such as item-by-item personalization, multiple images on items and full-color wraps, as ways to add perceived value without increasing price. "Anytime you can have a full-color item with a low setup fee with outstanding image quality and an ability to inexpensively personalize the product, it's going to be a home run."
Fredericks recommended Moderne Glass' B720 [Alta Woodgrain Tumbler]. "The B720 is a dual-wall tumbler with a twist-on, spill-proof, slide-lock lid," she said. "This sleek design of this tumbler allows it to fit into car cup holders, but also makes it an ideal desk item."
Hodges had some higher-budget suggestions as well. "If your budget pushes you towards $10, I would look at a vacuum-sealed bottle like our Journey," he said. "It keeps drinks really hot up to 5 hours and it just screams quality. If a customer's budget is a little smaller, I would immediately look towards our newest double-wall tumbler, The Choice," he said. "It features a lid that accommodates a straw, and a twist-action lid for hot drinks. All of this is accented well with a vertical imprint and packaged in a retail-ready gift box."
