A Bitmap is exactly what the name says: a collection of bits that form an image. The image consists of a matrix of individual pixels that all have their own colour and are described with vertical/horizontal coordinates (computer graphics). The file extension for Bitmap files is *.bmp.
The bleed is the area added to artwork that extends beyond the edge of the final trimmed edge of the print format on the promotional product or the type area when printing on paper.
Example: As printers cannot print right to the edge of a sheet of paper, they must use a sheet that is larger than the document size. Therefore, if an image should fill an entire page of a catalogue, the printer prints it 2-3 mm (top, bottom and outside, but not gutter) beyond the edge of the document and then cuts it to the size of the document.
Blind embossing describes the stamping of an imprint into the surface of a promotional product or gift without colours (in contrast to foil embossing where the imprint is stamped into the surface using coloured foils, e.g. silver or gold).
The imprint on the promotional product is either impressed into its base material creating a 'bas relief' effect or raised from its background material creating an 'intaglio' effect. Blind embossing is often used to decorate leather. It gives the advertising media an elegant and subtle character.
The term brief in the advertising industry refers to an outline of all the necessary information and facts that a market research institute or advertising agency requires in order to be able to submit an offer or execute an order.
A brief is also highly informative for an advertising agency when manufacturing promotional products, giveaways or promotional gifts. It outlines the advertiser's aims and what they hope to achieve by employing promotional products and giveaways as advertising media.
The basis of the brief is the marketing strategy, which provides a general statement of which products are to be offered on which markets and to which target groups using which methods.
The brief subsequently describes the specific aims and contains information about competitors, competitive advantages, developments, time schedules and budget plans.

A business gift can also be a promotional product that is given on a special occasion. Companies often send their customers promotional gifts at Christmas and Easter. Sometimes companies also distribute promotional products and gifts at parties and trade shows. These could also be direct premiums with the brand-name and logo of the company. Especially practical promotional products and advertising media here are items such as pens, key rings, ties, etc.
