Custom rolling tray

Rolling trays have become an essential accessory for many smokers, allowing them to have a specific space to roll their joints, blunts, and other cannabis products. They are a popular item to use as a cannabis promotional product because smokers love their practicality, the convenience they offer, and they have the perfect space for brands to advertise on. We're going to be looking at the pros and cons of using a rolling tray to help you decide if this tool is a worthwhile addition to your cannabis kit.

Pros of Using a Rolling Tray

🤗 Organization and Tidiness

Rolling trays are fantastic for maintaining organization and tidiness. They keep all your rolling supplies—such as papers, filters, grinders, and cannabis—neatly in one place. This prevents spills and messes on your furniture, making your rolling process cleaner and more efficient.

📻 Portability

One of the key advantages of rolling trays is their portability. They are easy to carry around, allowing you to have a designated space to roll on the go. They are light and compact size means they can fit into bags or backpacks, making them a convenient choice for those who travel or like to roll in different locations.

🔆 Efficiency

Rolling trays significantly speed up the rolling process by having all your materials within easy reach. The raised edges of the tray prevent the loss of material, ensuring that everything stays on the tray, thus reducing waste and making the process smoother.

🎨 Variety and Customization

Rolling trays come in a wide variety of sizes, materials, and designs. This allows companies to choose a tray that suits their brand. Customization on rolling trays allow you to offer a branded tray that reflects your company's branding, which is a great way of advertising.

💙 Clean Surface

A rolling tray provides a clean, flat surface for rolling, which is crucial for a good roll. They are also easy to clean and maintain, ensuring that you always have a tidy surface to work on, free from unwanted dirt or contaminants.

Cons of Using a Rolling Tray

💵 Additional Cost

Despite their benefits, rolling trays represent an additional expense that might not be necessary for everyone. While basic trays are affordable, high-end trays can be quite expensive, which deter some companies from deciding to use them as a promotional item.

📛 Limited Use

Rolling trays are primarily designed for rolling, which means they may not be multifunctional. For those who don't roll frequently, having a rolling tray may just seem like an extra accessory wasting space.

🗃️ Portability Issues

While most rolling trays are portable, the larger trays can be heavy to carry around. Not all trays are designed for travel, which might limit their use for those who are always on the go.

🔎 Space Requirement

Rolling trays require storage space when not in use. For individuals with limited space, finding a spot to store the tray can be a challenge. This can make them less ideal for those who live in studios or dorm rooms.
