Why Buy Personalized Bottle Openers?

The best promotional products are those that reliably serve a specific purpose for their recipients, and promotional bottle openers are just such an item. How often have you been somewhere without a bottle opener?

There is nothing quite as satisfying as cracking open a cold bottle of beer or soda and quaffing deeply. Popular at restaurants, bars, festivals, and concerts, customized bottle openers and bottle opener keychains are a good way to connect with that ever-elusive 18-29 demographic—but that doesn’t mean other age groups won’t appreciate them. Moreover, because custom bottle openers are so useful, recipients are likely to hold onto them indefinitely, registering countless residual impressions. Furthermore, some recipients may transfer some of the positive feelings generated by enjoying a refreshing beverage onto your brand, given that an item with your logo on it directly contributed to their positive feelings of satisfaction.

Types of Customized Bottle Openers

Although InkHead carries several different types of bottle openers, we primarily offer bar blades, churchkeys, bottle opener keychains, and multi-use bottle openers.

Bar Blades

They sound like they may be dangerous, but bar blades are a bartender’s best friend, mainly because they are flat and can be slipped easily into a back pocket. One crucial disadvantage to bar blades is the inability to open cork-top bottles, so depending on your intended recipients, this may not be the most ideal bottle opener.

Bottom line: Flat and handy for bartenders, bar blades combine form and function to make a stylish statement.
Good for: Restaurants, bars

Churchkeys

The origin of the name “churchkey” is up for debate; some believe the name is simply an ironic euphemism, given that such openers allow access to beer and not churches while others believe that the name came about following Prohibition as a way for potable purveyors to thumb their noses at the religious organizations that brought about Prohibition in the first place. Either way, churchkeys are most easily recognized these days by the piercing end one of end of the bottle opener.

Bottom line: The classic bottle opener, churchkeys can uncap any marketing promotion.
Good for: Weddings, restaurants, trade show giveaways

Bottle Opener Keychains

These days, the place you’re most likely to find a bottle opener is on people’s keychains, which is why InkHead offers a healthy selection of customized bottle opener keychains. Get some today and crack open a cool new marketing campaign!

Bottom line: These little guys are handy. Pick some up to connect with new clients today.
Good for: Outdoor events, concerts, festivals, and trade shows

Multi-use Bottle Openers

In addition to standard bottle openers, we also carry a number of openers that embody more than one tool, such as carabiner/bottle-openers, bottle-opener/lighters and bottle-opener/knife/light combinations! Such multi-purpose tools are great for outdoor events and trade shows.<

Bottom line: When you want a gift that will do more than open a bottle.
Good for: Weddings, outdoor events, trade shows

How to Buy Custom Bottle Openers

When ordering custom bottle openers, there are a few things to bear in mind, namely your audience, the location of the giveaway, the material you wish to use for the bottle opener, and the imprint method you wish to use.

Audience and Location

Your target audience and the location of the promotion will dictate what type of bottle opener you should get. If you are trying to reach out to a younger crowd at a concert or outdoor festival, then you should consider getting bottle opener keychains, which are easily carried and can result in immediate impressions, assuming a recipient adds it to his or her keychain right away.

If you are planning to get some openers for a wedding or a benefit dinner, then think about getting something with a higher perceived value than a simple keychain, such as a bottle opener/corkscrew combination tool or one of our bar blades.

Material

We offer bottle openers made of hard durable plastic and others made of metal. Those made of plastic cost a bit less than those made of metal, but they also wear out quicker, so bear this in mind when selecting the bottle opener you wish to purchase.

Imprint method

Most of our plastic bottle openers and bottle opener keychains use a one-color/one-location silk screen, and the majority of our metal openers are imprinted via laser engraving. Some of our bottle openers can take more than one type of imprint method, so be sure to review the item description when you are ready to buy to find out all of your options.
