Every year on August 7th the United States celebrates recipients of the Purple Heart. The Armed Forces give this award to members of the military who have been wounded, killed, or died from wounds caused by an enemy attack. Let us all honor those recipients and be grateful for the freedoms and liberties for which they fight.
The K3A is the most economically-priced of all the promotional Maglights. Sometimes they are on sale for only $7.94. That fits into most budgets for appreciation gifts. It does come with an alkaline battery and a carry strap. There’s no need to wrap this one up as a present. It already comes with a permanent hard plastic hinged gift box.
The other popular one has an LED bulb and 2 AA batteries. It puts out an extreme amount of light for its size. LED flashlights are often requested by business owners who want to give a high quality gift to their employees.
The first flashlight was invented in 1899 by David Misell. It contained 3 D cells
and an incandescent light bulb. In 120 years, we have come a long way. LED’s have replaced the bulb. Electronic circuits now provide different light levels and a strobe effect and power conservation. Recharging has become a valuable option. And now the COB (chip on board) bulbs are super bright.
The history of promotional flashlights involves different types of imprinting. Pad printing changed into laser engraving. Today engraved flashlights with your corporate logo are ubiquitous.
What can we hope for in the future? Here are some of my ideas. Do you have more? Please let me know in the comment section.

If you are thinking of giving a useful gift to some of your customers, here are some ideas. These are the people who would love to get an architect scale ruler from you, with your company logo.
All of these people design or read blueprints in the course of their daily work. An architect scale ruler is a necessity for measuring the size of objects on the blueprint. It is used in the office and at the job site.
If your company needs to advertise to the people on this list, then you need to order architect scale rulers with your logo permanently engraved.

When business owners think about giving a Maglite engraved with their logo to their employees, here are their top questions:
Can I get a Maglite in my corporate color? The K3A comes in 8 different colors. Probably one of them will correspond with your corporate color. Many other models come in colors other than the basic black, blue, gray and red.
Does it have a lifetime warranty? Maglite used to offer a lifetime warranty, but that stopped about 2019. Now it appears that they handle warranty questions one at a time on their website, using a form. They don’t have a written warranty posted on their website as of today.
Does the imprint wear off? The laser engraved imprint is permanent. Your company logo will last forever. The laser burns through the colored outer layer, and into the aluminum barrel.
What does laser engraving cost? The price of engraving is included in the price of the Maglite. There is a setup charge.
How is the flashlight packaged? Each Maglite engraved with your logo comes in a hard plastic hinged presentation box, with a velvet covered cradle. So your customer or employee will be thrilled to see their favorite flashlight in a unique gift box.
