Give Your Customers Something Different: Personalized Corn Cob Pipes
So many companies use the same old corporate gifts to promote themselves but you don’t have to be boring if you don’t want to be. If you would like to make sure that your customers remember your company the next time they are thinking of buying a product or service that you provide, give them something a little different. A Missouri Meerschaum corn cob pipe, laser engraved with your company name and logo, will make a unique gift that is sure to stand out from the mass of t-shirts, baseball caps and umbrellas your competitors are giving away.
How Personalized Corn Cob Pipes Can Promote Your Business More Effectively
Many marketing teams spend very little time thinking about the corporate gifts they purchase each year to give to their best customers. But as corporate giveaways offer such a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of your business, it is well worth taking the time to choose the perfect products so you can maximize the exposure that each gift provides. A laser engraved corn cob pipe is an excellent choice of corporate gift for a number of reasons:
- Function and Beauty – A custom corn cob pipe, engraved with your corporate logo and perhaps a short message, will be both functional and beautiful to behold. There is something very appealing about the timeless rustic charm of a corn cob pipe and those made by Missouri Meerschaum are eminently practical too. The bowls are made from specially grown cobs that are aged for 2 years after being picked, to make sure they are hard and dry. After being fashioned into bowls, the bottoms are removed and replaced with a hardwood insert to ensure they never burn through. The result is a pipe that is both beautiful and functional.
- Low Cost – Corn cob pipes are relatively inexpensive, especially when you buy in bulk at our wholesale prices, making them a good choice for larger businesses who intend to give away thousands of pipes as well as small companies that want to present a few dozen of their best customers with a special gift but don’t want to blow their annual marketing budget on the gesture. Even personalized corn cob pipes are not an expensive gift when compared to most of the alternatives and they make such a nice change from branded sports clothing and bags. Clothing and bags are undoubtedly useful gifts but most of your customers probably already have dozens of unwanted freebies gathering dust in the back of a cupboard somewhere. A corn cob pipe, on the other hand, will most likely be in view every day.
- Dual Purpose – After reading the last point, you may be wondering what will happen to the laser engraved corn cob pipes you present to customers who don’t smoke a pipe. Why will they be seen on a daily basis if they are not being used? This is a great question and the answer is quite simple: many people see corn cob pipes as attractive ornaments, not just a tool for smoking pipe tobacco. Have a quick look at the range of pipes we have in stock and you will see for yourselves what we are talking about. These charming little pipes look great displayed on mantelpieces and hallway tables when they are not being used.
- Durability – Whether the recipients of your custom corn cob pipes are pipe smokers or not, the pipes should last for a long time. Many people without firsthand experience of these pipes assume they are little more than toys but nothing could be further from the truth. With a little care, a personalized corn cob pipe can provide many years of service to a regular pipe smoker and as an ornament, will prove to be exceptionally durable: you can pick them up and throw them across the room without causing any damage. It is to be hoped that the recipients of your gifts will treat them a little better than this but it’s still nice to know that they are built to last!
- American Made – As an American company, it is much better if you can find USA-made products to give to your customers as gifts but unfortunately, many such products are prohibitively expensive to use as corporate giveaways. As we mentioned, earlier, corn cob pipes do not suffer from this problem: at just a few dollars apiece, they are one of the most affordable American-made products that can be used as business gifts. Each one is supplied with a sticker that confirms its place of manufacture (Washington, MO), which is sure to warm the hearts of patriotic-minded customers. Having the pipes laser engraved is not an expensive process either so your total outlay will be relatively small.
- Always Fashionable – Custom corn cob pipes make unique corporate gifts that never go out of fashion. Missouri Meerschaum have been producing them since 1869 and they are still a popular choice among pipe smokers in the USA today. Unlike a certain brand or color of sports clothing, which could be completely out of favor within 12 months, you can be sure that your engraved corn cob pipes will stand the test of time because, well, they already have!
