Why Use Custom Printed Lighters
A lot of businesses use custom printed lighters for promotional purposes. There are several benefits to putting your business’s name and logo on a Bic Slim lighter, including:
- Cost savings
- Long-lasting promotion
- Social promotion through customers smoking with friends
- Full control of what your promotion looks like
- A unique way to promote your products and services
- Tie-ins with related smoking products that you can also customize
When it comes to cost, there are few more efficient ways of promoting your brand than Bic Slim lighters. They’re affordable for both you and your customers, making them a great way to reach as many people as possible. If you are working with a tight budget or just want to save a little money on advertising, customized Bic Slim lighters offer a great balance of cost and visibility.
Plus, Bic Slim lighters hold up for a long time. These durable lighters are great for use as promotional items because customers will be able to keep them on hand for a long time. They can stay in pockets and purses for years, giving them an unprecedented promotional timeline. And all you need to do is make the initial investment in customized Bic Slim lighters designed to show off your logo and brand name in a stylish format.
The durability of Bic Slim lighters is especially important because of the social nature of smoking. Smokers don’t usually enjoy their cigarettes or marijuana alone; smoking is generally a social activity. This gives your brand ample opportunity to get in front of many people. If you reach that initial customer who is just looking for a decent lighter, you can also reach their friends when they smoke with others. This leaders to organic promotions in which your customers become your biggest fans and promoters.
Plus, with a personalized design on your Bic Slim lighters, you have total control over this unique way to promote your brand. Our lighters are totally customization. Add your logo, your name or whatever else you feel represents your brand best. You can choose a range of colors and text options in order to get exactly the look and feel you want your customers to leave with.
And you don’t need to stop with just the Bic Slim lighters. There are many products that you can also customize. Offering a range of customized products gets your brand out to your fans no matter how they prefer to smoke. Try any of the following promotional smoking products to advertise your business:
- Custom printed Bic lighters
- Custom lighter leashes
- Full color Bic lighters
- Custom printed matchbooks
- Custom lighters
All of these products have their own benefits. Matchbooks are used for more than just smoking and therefore reach a broad audience. Lighter leashes are niche items for people who are very serious about their lighters and smoking habits. And Bic lighters offer a little more space than the sleeker Bic Slim lighters. Ultimately, what is right for your promotion and business is up to you. A mix and match approach may work best. Try pairing both Bic Slim lighters and matchbooks to see what your customers like best. Or perhaps offer lighter leashes alongside custom printed lighters so your customers won’t lose their favorite lighter. Offering a combination of products that work for your customers may be the best strategy for reaching them with your promotion. You know your customers best, so think about what they need and want and plan your promotion accordingly.

Personalize and Design Your Own Bic Slim Lighters
Despite Bic’s fantastic reputation, the overall impact of your promotion will ultimately come down to you. How you personalize and design your Bic Slim lighters is extremely important for the success of your promotion.
So how should you go about designing your customized Bic Slim lighters? Here are some tips and tricks we think can help get you started:
- Have a plan
- Keep it simple
- Know your brand
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help
- Think about the bigger picture
Have a plan: When designing anything, it’s important to have a plan in mind from the start. Without a strategy, the design process can become messy, resulting in a cluttered, unappealing logo that is hard to understand. Taking the time to plan out your design, even if you already have an established logo, is a crucial step in the process.
This is also a good time to look at how other people are designing their logos. We have a range of lighters and smoking products that show designs others have used for their promotions. Don’t be afraid to look there for inspiration. Not all of these designs will be right for your brand, but you might see something that sparks the beginning of an idea for you or gets you going in the right direction.
If you don’t need inspiration in order to get started, it is still good to plan out how your existing logo will look on a Bic Slim lighter. While these lighters are incredible for their durability and how easily they can travel in a pocket or purse, they are also quite small. So be mindful of how much space your logo will take up on the relatively tiny space available on a Bic Slim lighter.
Keep it simple: That brings up the next concern, keeping it simple. Simplicity is key when it comes to designing for an incredibly small space such as that on a Bic Slim lighter. Make sure that your design will fit in the space that you have available for your promotion. Our Bic Slim lighters are 7/8″w x 3″h, with a print size of 0.625″ x 2″. That isn’t a ton of space, so try not to clutter it up with tons of words or images. That is not only difficult to fit, but also distracting and hard to read. Your customers might not realize whose lighter they’re holding when it’s overwhelmed with images and words that barely fit the space.
Keeping it simple applies to color, text and layout when it comes to custom Bic Slim lighters. Too many colors get visually confusing and can clash in ways you don’t intend. We include one color on the front and one on the back with our lighters. You can select more, but some stick to just one or only a couple. This keeps their design sleek and elegant. We also include one location of text. For many, this proves enough, as that location can be used to put a business or brand name. However, there are additional options for more text if you need to say a bit more. Just keep simplicity in mind so that text does not become unreadable by getting crammed too tightly together.
Know your brand: You know your brand better than anyone. So trust your own instincts when designing your custom Bic Slim lighters. It’s a great idea to get inspiration and a starting place from other designs and brands, but never lose sight of your core brand and identity while designing. The single most important thing in using Bic Slim lighters for promotion is to accurately represent your brand so that your customers know who you are every time that take out that lighter.
It can be tough to cram your brand’s entire identity onto a Bic Slim lighter, so instead carefully consider the most important aspects of your brand. If you can distill your logo down to one striking image, it will stand out more on a Bic Slim lighter. If you can find the most striking visual element of your logo you can keep your Bic Slim design elegant while accurately representing your business. You may be able to use selective pieces of your logo to give your customers a strong impression.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help: No one can do a promotion entirely on their own. There’s no harm in asking for help; in fact, it is usually extremely helpful. Once you think you have a design in mind, ask co-workers, employees and confidants what they think of it. They may be able to provide insight and perspective that you overlooked. Their feedback can mean the difference between a great design and one that is only OK. You may even find unexpected experts among friends and co-workers who know a thing or two about layout and design.
Think about the bigger picture: After you’ve considered all of the above, take a step back and consider the bigger picture. You want to be sure you’ve got the right design before committing to Bic Slim custom lighters. Here are some questions to consider at the end of your process:
- Does your design reflect your brand?
- Does it include all the information it needs to include?
- Will customers who look at your lighters think of your brand?
- Is the design sleek, elegant and comprehensible or is it cluttered, confusing and difficult to understand?
These are just a few considerations to get you started. The design of your custom Bic Slim lighters is up to you in the end.
