Make Personalized Keychains Useful
I have one with a screwdriver attached to it. Being a DIY enthusiast, I just love the idea of having a screwdriver attached to my keychain. Through the day I keep coming across something or the other that needs a screw tightened and I find it frustrating when I have to go to the garage and rifle through my tool box looking for a screwdriver so I can fix it.
More often than not, I make a mental note to do it later and then just forget about it. With a screwdriver attached to my keychain, I just take it out of my pocket and tighten the screw right there. It’s over and done in a couple of minutes.
A voice recorder is another handy accessory to have attached to your keychain. Most people will usually carry their keys in their hand as they walk to and from their house or office and their car.
This is the perfect time to simply switch on the voice recorder and leave little memos to yourself about things that you need to do. Beats having to carry around a pen and paper to make ‘to-do’ lists.
While it is tempting to fill the entire space – and there can be quite a lot of space depending upon the design you choose, you should be careful not to overcrowd your key chain with too many words or graphics.
Just your company name or logo, your contact details and website URL should be sufficient.
Sometimes, when you create the design on paper or on your computer, it can turn out quite differently when transferred on to the key chain.
Before placing ordering a whole lot of personalized keychains, it is always a good idea to get a sample made first and only then order as many as you need only if you are satisfied with the result.
