Keeping 'em kissable!

We have 54 vendors for lip balm! I have used lip balm from 5 different vendors as self-promotion items. Raining Rose offers the best bang for the buck. Some are cheaper but their imprint quality and consistency do not measure up. There is one nationally recognized vendor in this arena - Aloe Up - if you wish to piggyback on their name recognition. All vendors will offer numerous flavors, most vendors will be imprinting 4/c digital (no PMS color match with digital) and all should be able to ship within 5 biz days of proof approval. Again, Raining Rose is our best option for balancing price with quality.

Packaging - Lip Balm will ship bulk packed, we can create a package but the cost will be double. Add-ons are readily available including neoprene sleeves with imprint, carabineers, double-ended tubes etc etc.

Most vendors offer the following quantity discount: once we hit 500 units price will be at End Quantity Pricing which I've posted in the unit cost column. Beneath the unit cost is the set up.

Data Capture - Snugz created a campaign a few years back that was quite successful at gathering contact info. "Guess The Flavor" - they handed out lip balm with all required government info but left off the flavor. Recipients went online to their web site, entered a couple of fields of info: name & e-mail and then submitted their guess, winner received some form of gift. They have 2 flavor combos from which to choose, one is relatively easy to guess and the other almost impossible.

Why I recommend Raining Rose Lip Balm

Humphrey - label imprint wore off in pocket. Perf around cap "Twist Cap to Break Seal" was not perfed, had to open each one with an Xacto knife. Since they had given me 100 tubes for free I couldn't really complain but I do not recommend using this vendor. Save 10¢+ a tube but run the risk of having to return the entire shipment for a redo.

Me monkey, you organ grinder but using this vendor is similar to playing the Battle Hymn of the Republic in the Heart of Dixie. You grind out the tune and I dance but we're likely to get tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail.

 
 
 

Imprint Quality: All tubes have been used completely, there is no lip balm left and would be tossed by recipient at this point. You can still clearly see and read the imprint on the Raining Rose product; Both Humphrey and Snugz are pretty well worthless at this point.

Top image is by Tek-Weld, bottom image Raining Rose. Tek-weld "wizard" imprint is too dark, Raining Rose contacted me before going to press (same art file) stating they wanted to 'lighten' the overall image to improve imprint quality. If you have loose standards for imprint quality or the imprint is pretty simple, we can order from TekWeld at a very inexpensive unit cost. Tekweld label "wear" is acceptable with minimal rub off but not equal to Raining Rose.
