Light ‘em Up: Why Keychain Flashlights Make the Perfect Everyday Carry Item (EDC)

Do you know what EDC stands for?

We’ll tell you: Everyday Carry. Basically, EDC refers to the items that people feel it is essential to carry in their pockets, purses, or on their person every day. This term is commonly used in survival/prepper communities, but is also gaining traction in more mainstream conversations. After all, whether you are preparing for the zombie apocalypse or a flat tire on a dark road at night, there are some items it’s just wise to keep on hand.

We didn’t know (much) about the EDC community until recently. But we gotta say, these people have some really great ideas, some of which we’ve been sharing for quite some time. For example, all of the most popular EDC experts say that a small, LED flashlight keychain is an essential—and we’ve been preaching that for years! (Of course, they also say that a good pen is an EDC necessity, so they kind of had us at “hello”).

Anyway, since we have recently taken a deep dive into all things EDC (those blogs really get you to thinking), we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to tell you why…

Everyone Needs an EDC Keychain Flashlight

A keychain flashlight doesn’t take up much space, and because it’s attached to your keys you just automatically take it everywhere. Which is a good thing, because there are so many reasons it’s wise to make a small flashlight one of your go-to EDC items.

  • Be Prepared for Emergencies

The very nature of an emergency is that it is unexpected, so it’s important to be prepared for potential emergencies at all times. You might be surprised by the number of emergency situations that can be made much less dangerous with the help of a little extra light.

  • Feel More Secure

Even the bravest of us may get a little nervous when walking to our cars late at night. But when you have an EDC keychain light with you, neither the boogey man nor a chupacabra nor those darn zombies can intimidate you.

  • Find Things in a Pinch

We’ve all had to do battle with that treacherous part of a car’s front seat we like to call “the console black hole.” You know it—that deep, dark crevice between the seat and the console where keys, phones, coins, jewelry, and french fries go to disappear. Fortunately, with your handy-dandy EDC keychain light you can identify and retrieve your lost treasures in mere moments. After all, who wants to spend time looking for your wedding ring when there are zombies to fight?

Become Everyone’s Hero by Handing out Keychain Flashlights!

Here at National Pen, we say that “your image is our business,” and this is true. Ostensibly, our main goal is to help small businesses like yours promote their brands with customized items like pens and swag.

But why stop at basic promotions when we can show you how to make your brand (and your fine self) a HERO by handing out custom-printed EDC keychain flashlights to potentially desperate and unprotected citizens (aka zombie snacks) all over the universe?

This is how our minds work. We look for the best, brightest (get it?) ways to make you a champion for your brand and just a general, all-around champ. And we’re pretty sure that can be accomplished with customized keychain flashlights.

You’re welcome.
