Branded Candles: Merch that Matters

Branded Candles: Merch that Matters

If you're anything like me, I know you put a lot of thought and effort into designing your logo and branding for your company.

Once you have that branding, what do you do with it? Where does it go? Where are you putting that carefully designed logo? Are you thinking as carefully about the places it goes and the products it goes on as you did about the logo itself? 

In other words, when it comes to branded merch and swag for your company, are you still thinking about the values and aesthetic your brand represents? Or are you putting your logo on the easiest, most cost effective solution you can find? 

You're proud of your logo and your business. Now make sure you're putting your logo on something you're proud of, too.
