The past decade has witnessed a gradual and steady increase in consumers seeking products that are “Made in the USA”. These products belong to a wide range of categories, from tools and toys to candy and anything you can imagine under the sun! Earlier, a “Buy American” wave was witnessed during the 1940s (when WWII was on). It was a frenzy that spread across the country and remained for a couple of decades.
The recent attraction towards all-things American can be attributed to the financial crisis of 2008, and the recession that took over immediately after that. That year, many Americans paused to rethink about the importance of the American economy. Since then, people have made a conscious attempt to buy American over other country-made products.
The promotional products industry has also witnessed a surge in demand for items made in the USA. At Promo Direct, we have an entire section devoted towards promotional products made in USA. Click here to view them. You will notice that there is a wide range of products awaiting your personalization, from clothing and stationery to drinkware and bags! These products are quite popular with our shoppers and they are willing to go the extra mile to get their hands on our locally-made giveaways.
Here are some reasons why American giveaways are irresistible:
1. Lower chances of inventory shortages
A big advantage associated with locally-manufactured products is the fact that there is very less chances of inventory shortages. Since a lot of customers opt for huge orders, they can be assured of product availability at all times.
- Lesser logistical nightmares
Let’s suppose a customer orders 150 t-shirts for Christmas. If the t-shirts run out of stock, it’ll be more difficult to source them in time from a place like China than it would be to deal with locally produced products. In short, logistical nightmares are reduced significantly.
3. More labor-friendly working conditions
The USA follows some of the world’s most stringent labor laws. This ensures that workers in American factories building products are working in conditions that give their safety and monetary concerns the highest priority.
4. High quality giveaways
Products manufactured in the USA have to follow certain protocols to ensure they are of the highest quality. These products offer high durability and longevity, providing the buyer with great ROI.
5. High patriotic value
One reason why American giveaways are sought is because of the patriotic value associated with them. This feeling of American pride will be felt by buyers and recipients as well! Also, money earned through the sale of such products will be put back in the American economy, contributing to its long-term stability.
