Promoting a film is much like promoting a business: it’s vital to stand out and get people talking about you. What better way to that than with promotional items?
In honor of our sponsorship of the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival, here are our 5 favorite products with which to promote movies.
Who doesn’t love a free t-shirt? Seen here is the American Apparel Short-Sleeve Cotton Jersey Tee, which is made from 100% ringspun combed cotton jersey, taped shoulder to shoulder and features double-needle stitching on the sleeves and bottom hems. And with 16 colors from which to choose, you are bound to find one that you like.
Hosting a premier of your film at a local theater? Provide attendees with a gift bag like the 100% Cotton Tote Bag, which is made from 100% natural cotton, includes 30″ handles, and comes in 9 fashionable colors. Unlike a plastic bag, recipients will continue to use a cotton tote bag after the event, which could lead to more exposure for your film.
If your film is being featured at a film festival, make attendees feel special with a lanyard inspired by your movie. Seen here is the 3/4″ Dye-Sublimated Polyester Lanyard, which can be dyed to match your exact PMS color and features a standard O-ring attachment. Need badge holders, too? We can help!
Cover the promotional basics with a sticker, such as the Full-Color Removable Vinyl Decal, which features ultra-removable adhesive backing and can be custom-cut to your specifications. Use them for your own guerrilla marketing campaign or hand them out to audience members as they leave the film.
Like stickers, buttons are another promotional staple that filmmakers should consider buying when promoting a new film. Here is the Full Color Button on a Budget, a two-piece metal button with full color imprint and comes standard with a safety pin back. Bulldog clip or clothing magnet attachments are also available. Please call 800-554-0127 between 9 AM and 8 PM ET for more information.
Hand fans are inexpensive promotional items that can create a memorable experience at the premiere of your film. Invest in one of our full-color promotional fans, and you will give your fans and guests a collectible they won’t soon forget!
If you are trying to promote a movie, consider ordering one of the products mentioned above. They will have people talking about your film long after they’ve left the theater.
