We’re all familiar with the ubiquitous rubber duck, but have you seriously thought about using them for a promotional-bath-ducksmarketing project? Printed with your details or logo, a promotional duck is instantly recognisable and suitable for any business or event.

The classic yellow duck with a flat base is now usually made from vinyl plastic, and has reached an iconic status in popular culture!  Ernie from the Muppets sang a song called Duckie (after his yellow toy duck) in the 1970s; the hit song Convoy featured the call sign ‘Rubber Duck’, it’s even rumoured that the Queen has her very own bath duck wearing a crown!princess-queen-duck

Plastic character ducks are now available in so many themes and styles – sports ducks, pirate ducks, ducks for all professions - police, medical, construction, colour change ducks, LED light up ducks, stress shape ducks to name a few – that choosing and branding a style of duck for advertising is almost child’s play!

light-up-promo-ducksCharity duck races are held all over the world to raise funds, with many being an annual event, such as the recent Liverpool Duck Race in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.  An accidental spillage of thousands of plastic ducks in 1992 in the Pacific saw ducks travelling the world’s oceans, and many are still floating – how’s that for longevity?!

So you’ll be in good company if you choose to overprint a duck with your name. The rubber duck was inducted into America’s National Toy Hall of Fame in 2013, and looks set to stay a favourite promotional giveaway for years to come. We can source all sorts of designs, so get in touch to discuss your campaign requirements – you’d be quackers not to! For further ideas take a look at our Duck pages
