Wholesale Fleece Blankets: Save Money on a ‘One Size Fits All’ Promotional Product

Custom fleece blankets make perfect corporate gifts or promotional products because you don’t have to worry about getting the right size. To get the best price, when buying fleece blankets, you should look for a company that sells wholesale blankets and the first place to look is on line.

Custom fleece blankets make perfect corporate gifts or promotional products because you don’t have to worry about getting the right size. To get the best price, when buying fleece blankets, you should look for a company that sells wholesale blankets and the first place to look is on line.

Wholesale fleece blankets are available from many vendors online and in print; however internet catalogs are preferable because they are easier to search, updated more frequently and available at anytime.

Start by doing a search on your favorite search engine for “wholesale fleece blankets”. Although the most popular search engine is Google, try Yahoo or Bing since you will get different results.

Using quotation marks around the search phrase weeds out unrelated items that are only about either wholesale or fleece blankets. Don’t commit to the first site you find. Look around at different vendors. Compare costs (including shipping and/or handling fees), order requirements, availability, quality and customer service. Don’t let price be the only factor in your selection. A company with a low item cost but a large fee for shipping and handling may not save you very much, if any, money in the long run.

You should also look into order requirements. Wholesale means different things to different companies. Some will sell whole sale to anyone willing to purchase X-amount of goods. Usually the minimum amounts are based on case size or dollar amount. Depending on the item minimum dollar mounts range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. Some companies will only sell wholesale to people with resale certificates. If you do not have a resale number you will not be able to work with those venders. There are often minimums associated with these companies as well.

Another important aspect of ordering whole sale is turn-around time. Make sure the company you order from has the blankets in stock and available on a regular basis. If they maintain low inventory you might find yourself in trouble when you need an order quickly.

Quality is perhaps the most important factor next to cost. A low price for fleece blankets is not a good deal if the product is terrible quality. When purchasing fleece blankets look for consistent fleecing, low quality blankets will have bare spots where the internal mesh is visible. Look for a high loft, blankets will only get flatter with use so you never want to start out with a thin product. Request a sample blanket or swatch to make sure the color and quality are what you are looking for; they should be available for a low cost or free.

Good customer service is worth paying a little more. Imagine you buy 6 cases of yellow fleece blankets and you get 6 cases of blue instead or you open a case of blankets to find half of them with dirt marks on them. A company with good customer service will correct the problem quickly with as little frustration for you as possible. A company with poor customer service may drag its feet, make you pay extra to get the correct blankets on time, ignore the problem, etc.

The company you ultimately choose to work with to buy your wholesale fleece blankets should have a good price, reasonable handling fees, fit your needs for order requirements, offer a quality product and be easy to work with. If all of these criteria are met you should feel confident in your choice to purchase wholesale fleece blankets.

Another alternative for fleece blankets is sweatshirt blankets, but more on that later.
