1. Giving back to the community helps build goodwill among customers, clients, and vendors
2. It’s a great way to engage employees and build team morale
One of the best ways to get employees excited about volunteering is to create custom printed apparel. We offer a front and back printing location on all t-shirts, making them perfect for advertising your special events or charity involvement. Custom printed apparel helps spread the word, unite employees, and promote your brand.
3. Giving back allows you to support causes that are meaningful to your business or industry
As a producer of custom cups, we know the importance of finding a cause that aligns with your business. That’s why we support charity:water – an organization that is working to bring clean water to developing nations – by donating a portion of our custom printed product sales towards their water projects. We donate $1 from cases of custom printed products such as custom plastic clear cold cups, paper cold cups, food bowls, sleeves, paper hot cups, stickers, and seals. In addition, we donate $5 from every case of custom printed seasonal products. Not only do we know we are making a difference for people in need, our customers also understand that our efforts are possible because of their purchases.
4. It can help you attract and retain top talent
In today’s competitive job market, it’s more important than ever to offer potential employees a comprehensive benefits package—and that package should go beyond just health insurance and 401(k) matching. Many job seekers are looking for companies that offer opportunities to give back, whether through paid time off for volunteering or matching charitable donations.
5. Charitable giving is a great way to build brand awareness
By supporting a charity or sponsoring a fundraising event, you’ll not only increase your visibility in the community, but you’ll also create positive associations with your brand. This can be especially helpful if your business has a strong online presence, as customers and clients are more likely to share their positive experiences with others via social media. Having an online presence is one thing, but having a social media following that actively promotes your brand is another.
Another great way to develop an awareness for your business is through the products you serve. Everything that you serve – from custom plastic cups and promotional coffee cups to branded ice cream cups and carryout containers – can spread the word about both your brand and any charitable initiatives you’re supporting. With custom printed cups, the marketing possibilities are almost endless. Our double wall paper hot cups are available in full wrap, full color printing, allowing you to advertise your upcoming events and even what achievements you’ve hit. Adding QR codes is another popular way to engage customers while they’re holding your product. These QR codes can link directly to your website for more information or even to your social media where customers can follow you and learn more about how you give back.
6. Giving back can help you differentiate yourself from the competition
In any industry, there will always be competitors vying for the same customers. There are a lot of ways you can separate yourself from the competition, but one of the most effective is by giving back.
7. It can help you build deeper connections with customers, clients, and vendors

9. It can help you build your social media presence
