Year-End Budgets: 5 Promotional Products for Your Surplus

How do you plan to use your year-end budget?

When the year ends, many departments delight in seeing extra funds left over in their budgets. Some companies even reward departments for operating with a surplus, while other businesses encourage departments to spend the remainder of their budgets before the year ends.

If you or your department have to “use it or lose it,” make your purchases count. Order something that can be used at any time of year.

Here are 5 promotional products that are versatile enough to be used year-round, making them ideal purchases with your year-end budget surplus.
