It’s no secret that getting elected to public office is a challenging thing. Through press conferences, meeting supporters in person, and marketing yourself and your campaign on television and social media, you can start to gain traction and make a name for yourself in the upcoming election race. Usually, the ones who win their elections ~ no matter the scale ~ are the ones that can market themselves the best.
One of the best ways to market your political campaign is through promotional items – items with your name and logo or them! To spur your thinking, here are a couple of examples: Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” Hats – simple and extremely effective, Barack Obama’s “HOPE” signs and stickers – concise and artistic, and many more.
You don’t have to be a president to understand the power that these promotional messages have.
Whenever you give away a promotional item with your political campaign’s information printed onto them, so many other people see the information as well. This means that your campaign’s message will spread like wildfire.
In order to make your political giveaway effective, it has to be a couple of things…
Fun and memorable
Inexpensive and available to the masses
Has to have a catchy slogan and/or logo
In the rest of this blog post, we will give our suggestions of the best custom giveaways for political campaigns – ones to meet every price point and style. If you are looking for custom items that you want your supporters to purchase, feel free to also take these suggestions, and consider more expensive items as well!
We will even give your our favorite slogans that might work on each product if you need a little creative inspiration!
1. Custom Pens
Custom pens are great because they are useful, inexpensive, and are popular office essentials. People from all over will see your supporters writing with pens with your logo on them.
Since pens are a classic promotional item, we recommend imprinted your pens with something simple and succinct: Your Name, The office you are running for, and a short slogan.
“Elect/Re-elect Joe Smith to Town Council” … “I support Joe Smith for Town Council” …“I stole this pen from… Joe Smith for Town Council” and more!

Custom stress relievers are a fun way to get your supporters engaged and talking about your political campaign! Stress relievers are tactile so they really appeal to all of the fidgeters out there.
People of all ages will be playing with stress relievers, from young school children all the way up to adults sitting at their desks at work. You can’t go wrong with these, especially if you pick one that matches your campaign style.
We recommend some “fun” slogans to pair with your name and the name of the office that you are running for.
Consider the following:
“Don’t stress, vote Joe Smith for Town Council!” … “Chill out! Elect Joe Smith for Town Council!”

3. Custom Nylon Fans and Flyers
Custom Fans and flyers are great for political campaigns – especially outdoor and indoor rallies and marches! People can wave the fans and flyers around, showing your logo and information to everyone for maximum visibility.
There are a couple of reasons why fans and flyers are a great marketing tool: They are inexpensive, they are useful (keep people cool when it starts to get hot), and they have a large imprint area (maximal brand exposure).
Some slogans we recommend with custom fans are…
“Keep Cool And Elect Joe Smith to Town Council!” …. “Fan away the competition – Vote Joe Smith to Town Council!” … “Beat the Heat and Re-elect Joe Smith to Town Council!”

4. Notebooks and Keychains
Notebooks will be great giveaways or handouts for people in the business sector – or even for people who your campaign sends door-to-door to spread the message for your campaign. Keychains, on the other hand, are for everyone! Since they are small and inconspicuous, people will not mind putting them on their car keys – in fact – they will ENJOY putting your campaign’s keychain on their car keys if you are the politician that they support!
Some slogans that will work on these items are:
Notebooks: “Take Note, and VOTE for Joe Smith for Town Council!” … “Write away the competition, Elect Joe Smith for Town Council!”
Keychains: (keep it short because they are smaller): “Elect/Re-elect Joe Smith to Town Council” … “I support Joe Smith for Town Council” …“I stole this keychain from… Joe Smith for Town Council”

5. Miscellaneous Items
Sometimes, you need something a little outside the box in order to get people talking. That’s why we recommend considering a couple of unconventional promotional items.
These items still maintain usability but might not be what people are expecting from a political campaign. This is not a bad thing – in fact – it is a good thing. That is part of the reason why Trump’s Make America Great Again hats worked – nobody expected them.
Try out these slogans:
Flyswatter: “Swat Away Corruption – Vote Joe Smith for Town Council” … “No more pests in Washington – Vote John Brown for Congress”
Hand Clapper: “Make Some Noise For…. Joe Smith for Town Council!” … “Joe Smith for Town Council – He’ll give you something to clap about!”
