Need Special Op’s for your next Promo?

Check out these caps from the retail quality brand Decky. While the Camo look is not for everyone it can certainly enhance a theme for team building events, boot camps, fitness trainers or even just for that rugged outdoor look.

With their varied print they also hide the dirt well, which means the cap will be worn for a longer period of time. That all equals a better cost per impression for your marketing dollar.

Jute Promo Bag That Plants Trees

Environmentally friendly Promotional Bags have been a big winner as a promotional item for a number of years now. These new Jute promo bags made from vegetable fibres that are biodegradable come as a great alternative to plastic bags.

Every purchase of these bags also fund a pilot program that is dedicated to replanting degraded land right here in Australia. Conducted through the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund, since 2001 there has been over 5 million trees planted!!!

Each Reforest Tote Bag has a recycled cardboard tag attached to the strap alerting the recipient that one or more trees has been planted in connection with the production of the bags.

You can view the number of trees planted, location and dates for the entire Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund program by clicking here.

A Pen is just not a pen!

Nowadays the ole’ pen is not just a pen!

With technology quickly overtaking the role of hand written communication, the pen’s versatility has had to evolve.

Over time it has developed enhancements to be just not a writing instrument – it’s become a tool with the introduction of a stylus, it can carry data around with you on an included USB, through a banner pen it can communicate a detailed message. There are torch pens, tri-colour pens, pen & pencil pens, “leveller” pens, some have a small torch on the end for when you really want to write in the dead of night and there is a pen that has small flag notes included, for when you really want to write yourself a reminder and can’t find that bit of paper!

New to the market is the Shining Illuminated Stylus Pen which will light up your logo for dramatic impression. With twist tip action this pen will shine through your hands with the push of the stylus for illumination.

Shining Illuminated Stylus Pen

The good ole’ pen – keeps shining through! Still a huge favourite and bestseller for promotional products – an easy leave behind, always used!

Are your Clients Seen in Athleisure Wear

In recent times we have seen a fashion trend with people wearing their gym gear well beyond going to and from the gym. The sporty come stylish look, along with the comfortable nature of the materials, have seen this sector grow to annually to over $80B USD market globally. It’s also the fastest growing category in the apparel sector.

The term Athleisure comes from the combination of the words athletic and leisure. The materials are often the latest in cotton, spandex, sweat-wicking, breathable and stretching fibres.

The promotional products industry has always had a good range of sportswear, but in recent years the range has grown to include some of the latest trends in athleisure. Custom branded, athleisure makes for a good promotional item that your clients will love to wear, this all makes for a good cost per impression for your marketing dollars.

PARKER & WATERMAN PEN specials

Need a great idea for your client’s next promotional campaign? Look no further than the Parker and Waterman Pens!

Parker and Waterman pens are not only a household name, they are iconic! There would be very few people in Australia that did not own a Parker or Waterman pen at sometime in their life, and often when they did, it came as a gift; long treasured and often personalised by loved ones or by an employer, or an account that valued the relationship.

This makes PARKER AND WATERMAN PENS the perfect promotional gift!

Why?

Simple… because Promotional Products are all about ROI… or return on investment! And a gift that will be loved, treasured and most importantly, used as much as a Parker or Waterman Pen, will provide the kind of ROI your customers are looking for; brands that speak to integrity and prestige… refills that last for kilometres, or years of writing, and designs that reflect decades of European refinement.
