Just like any other promotional product, these promo sunglasses are used as a marketing instrument by businesses, companies, and enterprises to spread and broadcast their brand.

In most cases, giving out promotional sunglasses means that the company that is to use it is a company specializing in the making, creating, or manufacturing sunglasses. However, there are businesses and companies that utilize it that don’t have sunglasses as their products!

Mainly, these promotional sunglasses are used to give the market some type of awareness of the brand.

What Are Category 4 Sunglasses?

There are various ways of identifying sunglasses, and most of the time, they’re divided and separated in categories. The categories go from 0 (lightest) to 4 (darkest) in terms of hues.

To help you with it even further, here’s a table that discusses these different categories:

And to help you identify if Category 4 is the perfect type of sunglasses for you, here’s a quick description of each.

Category 0 Lens

Does not reduce the lens’s darkness – the percentage of light absorbed is just a little bellow 5%. They’re perfect for reading glasses or for spectacles.

Category 1 Lens

Contains a subtle coloration from the slight tint that the glasses have, but is still usable and recommended to be used as everyday sunglasses. It’s a slightly above level over category 0 sunglasses and are perfect for daily usage.

Category 2 Lens

The midpoint or halfway in the entire levels of sunglasses, category 2 sunglasses have a more noticeable tint compared to category 1 glasses. Can absorb twice light as category 1 glasses and are ideal for bright days.

Category 3 Lens

Deemed to be the best and the type of category that’s used by most manufacturers. They’re able to reduce the glare visible that you do during day-to-day sunny activities and are perfect for keeping ultra violet rays from penetrating your glass.

Category 4 Lens

Known to be the darkest shade of sunglasses you can get, category 4 sunglasses are perfect for absorbing light in the heaviest and highest levels. They’re perfect for scenarios where you’ll be directly looking at sunlight, deflecting it from glaring your vision.

Category 5 Lens

It’s typically the same as category 4 lenses when you start with category 1 instead of 0. However, most experts believe that these lenses are able to absorb visible sunlight up to 92% instead of just 80%.

Using this without sunlight is considered illegal and can actually cause accidents because it can impair your vision while you’re using i

This is for you to avoid or refrain from having it worn out earlier and faster than it should. Here’s the best and correct way to clean and maintain sunglasses regardless of what type it is.

   1.Wash your hands thoroughly so you remove oils and grease from your fingers.

   2.For the frame, run it with warm water to eliminate dust and dirt. The process could wet the lenses, too.

   3.Using microfiber cloth, dry the frames out.

   4.To ensure that it’ll be cleansed thoroughly, spray it with a cleaning solution. If you don’t have a cleaning solution, you can use dish soap or dishwashing liquid.

   5.Don’t use any type of water to dry it, make sure that you shake excess water first so you wouldn’t soak whatever medium you’ll use to dry it.

   6.When all the excess water is removed, wipe it with a clean and sanitized microfiber cloth.

NOTE: Don’t use regular tap water for it. It will be best to use running distilled water as your water, as well as gas duster to remove dust and dirt.

How Much Do Custom Sunglasses Cost?

The prices and rates of custom sunglasses will depend on quite a few factors, including the materials used, the type or specialty feature of sunglasses, the color, and even the volume or the bulk of your order.

figure 43 how much do custom sunglasses cost.jpg

Figure 43 – Custom sunglasses where you can specify the colors depending on your wants and needs

Typically though, purchasing custom sunglasses from American and European manufacturers and suppliers will cost you anywhere around $1.50 to $3 per piece for basic sunglasses.

If you’re looking for better and higher-quality sunglasses or those that have UV features, anti-scratch properties, anti-reflective (AR) properties, it can be up to $8 per piece by purchasing it from a direct manufacturer.

But, if you decide to go and work with a Chinese promotional sunglasses manufacturer, you can expect to pay about $0.75 to $1 per piece depending on the specializations and the properties of the sunglasses.

Chinese Sunglasses Manufacturers Return Policy

Just like purchasing from other manufacturers and suppliers, you can also have a return policy when you get or purchase your products from Chinese sunglasses manufacturers.

The return policy of Chinese sunglasses manufacturers differ from one manufacturer to another. However, if we put it in a much more general sense, the offer for return by most Chinese suppliers is around 30 to 90 days.

In addition to that, the policy for the return would require clients to be in contact with sunglasses manufacturers within 24 to 48 hours upon the receipt of the products without any errors or defects.

Several policies state that refunds are to be given to consumers and customers within 7 to 14 days from the date that the products have been returned, while there are manufacturers and suppliers that expedite this process even before the orders arrive back to the hands of the supplier.

Here with us at Y&T Eyewear, we’ll be more than happy to help you with it because we’ve appropriately streamlined our methods and processes!

How to Tell Quality of Sunglasses?

Determining the quality of sunglasses is relative. Some people find stronger and more durable sunglasses to be the better quality while some consider the frame and the make of the lens.

Figure 44 – You can determine the overall quality of your sunglasses by checking all of its parts and components comprehensively

It will be difficult and complex to tell good sunglasses from bad sunglasses. But, we prepared a quick list of things you can try to consider when choosing or when picking sunglasses:

UV Protection Label

From what it’s called, UV protection labels are labels on your sunglasses that determine the level of protection it offers when it comes to UV or ultraviolet rays.

To give you an example, sunglasses that have a UV 400 label means that it’ll be capable of blocking wavelengths of light rays up to about 400 nanometers, this is enough to protect your eyes from glare and the exponential effects of rays to your eyes.

Check Polarization

Polarization is the process where the radiation is assumed in a much definite form. In layman’s terms, polarization on glasses have certain noticeable effects, including:

   1. Enhancement and development of contrast
   2.Reduction of glare and reflection
   3.Improvement of comfort and clarity to the eyes
   4.Dispersion of light on the lens’s surface

Lens Quality

Part, if not the most crucial factor in choosing good-quality sunglasses would be the quality of the lens. This will dictate many features of sunglasses, most of which include the clarity of the lens, the strength and durability in terms of protecting the coating, and many more!

In addition to that, the lens quality would help determine the overall longevity of the lens because it’ll be scratch and abrasion resistant. Several other factors include:

   1. Weight of the sunglasses

   2. Color and appearance of the frame and lens

   3. Make and material of the lens

   4. And others!

Make and Material

The make and material of the sunglasses would also be a crucial factor in determining the quality of the sunglasses. Not all sunglasses are made from the same type and root material, therefore, knowing what it’s made of will be a significant factor in determining its quality.

Some of the most common materials used to manufacture sunglasses include polycarbonate or (PC), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and others for the lens. For the

Manufacturer of the Sunglasses

Last, and most definitely not least is to consider the manufacturer or the supplier of the promotional sunglasses you’re purchasing.

Most of these Chinese promotional sunglasses suppliers have reputations and standings in the industry. Therefore, they would not let a single business ruin it, giving you the assurance that your business will never be compromised no matter how small and how minimal your orders are.

There are tons of sunglasses wholesalers and suppliers in and around China, and most of the time, 

How Do I Choose Sunglasses?

Figure 45 – You can choose from a wide variety of options in picking out your sunglasses

Choosing sunglasses for your personal interest versus your business would be very much different. As a matter of fact, there are certain factors that make them different and part of these would be knowing the manufacturer or the supplier that created the products.

You need to consider the points and factors to determine and tell the quality of the sunglasses that you want to offer and add to your arsenal for your business.

In addition to those above, it will also be helpful to check the color of the lenses, the frames, as well as its reflective properties.

What kind of logo can be produced on the promotional sunglasses?

In addition to these simple logo printing, we can also customize the printing design with great difficulty. For example, some cartoon characters are good choices. The product colour and logo colour can be perfectly matched. We can make the product look very nice. The printing of cartoon characters will be much more difficult. So the cost will be higher than the normal logo.

Requirements in Ordering Promotional Sunglasses From China

The process of shipping and purchasing sunglasses from China is easy, so, why do some businesses think that it’s hard? – It’s because of the heap of requirements and documents needed to complete the transactions.

To help you with it, the following are the documents and requirements needed to be able to purchase and ship out sunglasses from China.

Air Waybill

This is some type of receipt that’s provided by the airlines to prove that the goods have successfully been transported and delivered. This is required and is not actually a problem since it’ll be coming from the shipping company.

Bill Of Lading (BOL)

The Bill of Lading or BOL/BL for short, is the document that gives comprehensive detail about the shipment of the goods. It’s something that provides the title of the goods and is required for the release of the shipment to the port.

Certificate of Origin (CO)

Quite obviously, the CO or the Certificate of Origin is the document that gives evidence that the goods have come been produced and manufactured from a particular country, which is China in this case. With us here at Y&T Eyewear, we can prepare this for you, so you’ll no longer have to stress or worry about it.

CITES Permit

There are products and services that are concerned to have any type of discrepancy with wildlife regulations, and that is what the CITES permit is for. For this, you don’t have to worry, because the CITES management will be the one to give you this, should the product you’re importing is on the CITES list.

Commercial Invoice

This document is a type of note that is formal and is used to denote that payment has been made and is ready for shipment or delivery. The exporter or the manufacturer will be the one to prepare and produce this and will be used to avoid any risks of fraud, counterfeits, and scams.

Import and Export Declaration

This is a document that’s required by the customs office. This is actually something that contains a list of goods that have been exported/imported. Depending on the situation, it can be prepared either by the importer or the exporter of the products, but in most cases, the exporter or the manufacturer will be the one to prepare this.

NOTE: Ask your manufacturer for those that they’re required to present and give to you because there’ll be no way for you to get it on your own. When you choose working with us here at Y&T Eyewear, we will give you everything you need – you don’t even have to ask for it!

Furthermore, these won’t be everything you need to prepare; there are region or location-based requirements and documentation that you must look into to guarantee the success of the transport of your orders from China to where your business is.

How Can I Order Custom Sunglasses?

The process of ordering custom sunglasses does not actually fall far from how you order regular or usual promotional sunglasses. The difference in the processes would be in terms of the initial or the beginning procedure.

Instead of ordering the regular or usual sunglasses by selecting from the list of available options, you can get and order custom sunglasses by sending the manufacturer or the supplier the draft or sketch of the product you’re looking for.

Typically, the process goes on like this:

1.You’ll send the manufacturer/supplier the sketch or the draft of your product.
2.They’ll verify and confirm if what you sent was doable by asking their R&D team.
3.You can get and request for a sample product for you to check the accuracy and consistency.

Where Can You Get the Best Custom Promotional Sunglasses?

Y&T Eyewear has been in the long-standing list of top promotional sunglasses manufacturers and suppliers in and around China. For more than a decade, we have been in the shade of the business, focused in the manufacturing industry as the primary source of our business.

But, over the years, we realized the value and the importance of inculcating retail and merchandise into our arsenal as well. Over the years of being the top manufacturer of promotional sunglasses, we learned too few things in the production and the manufacturing of promotional sunglasses.

Can the custom pattern be printed on the lens?

Yes, the pattern can be printed on the lens as your printing request. Because the technical requirements for lens printing are relatively high. So the printing cost is relatively high. Because of the cost, we can use another way to show the pattern design, which is to use stickers on the lenses. This sticker is like a protective lens film, which can be easily torn off. The customer likes this logo very much.

What’s the shipping package for the promotional sunglasses?

The normal packing is 1 piece sunglasses in one opp bag,20pcs/inner box, 500pcs/outer box .If you have an adequate advertising budget, you can also choose cloth bag packaging. The custom logo can also be printed on the bag. Many printed patterns on the pouch can boom your advertisement event. Make your brand go deep into the hearts of consumers. Some customers need to take part in the oversea tradeshow. And they choose our promotional sunglasses as a giveaway.

Why you need to reserve a lot of time for promotion campaign in advance?

If you have a big promotion, you may need thousands of sunglasses, and purchase them directly from China. The cost is cost-effective. After confirming the date of the activity, arrange the purchase in advance and transport by sea. Compared with using the express delivery time to catch up, using sea transportation can save a lot of transportation costs. If you don’t pay attention to controlling the transportation cost, sometimes the transportation cost is higher than the cost of the sunglasses. We have many customers, to catch up with the promotion time, often take express delivery. In this way, the transportation cost is expensive. The total marketing cost of the enterprise will increase virtually.

What are the common colors of promotional sunglasses?

The basic frame color is black, blue, red, green, pink, purple, and white. Because the logo of each company is different, many cases need to customize the corresponding color to show the brand image of the companies. Customers need to provide a Pantone number. We will proofread according to the color card number and confirm it to the customer by taking photos or sending samples by express. Then we can arrange the production. Our basic lens’ color is grey in color. Gray is a neutral color system; it is suitable for use by all people. It can reduce 98% UV rays and infrared rays.At the same time, customers can also choose the lens colors they need.

What are the main lens materials for promotional sunglasses?

Because of the need for cost control. The promotional sunglasses’ lens is mainly made of PC materials. The PC is better than the AC lens but cheaper than TAC. The lens has a basic protection function. It can prevent ultraviolet rays and infrared rays very well. It can protect people’s eyes against harmful rays.

How to know the final product looks like if I want to do our customized logo and printing?

We have designers to do some basic photoshop and artwork for you. It can help you to know if the color and printing can match well. It can help you to find the logo and printing’s color and pattern problem. If you don’t like it, we can adjust for you immediately. And you don’t need to pay extra cost for it.
