That link above is for individuals, so does not pertain to the OP assuming they are incorporated.

Record the "donation" as a sale/disposal for $0 in your accounting records; that will get you the appropriate result if your systems are set up correctly. Tax receipts are useless for corporations.

But then the expense would be sample cost and not the sale price. Am I missing something?

If you are trying to get a deduction for more than the cost, then you would also have to record a gain on the sale (and in the end you would be in the same place).
