Dental Floss as a promo item – brings a smile to your face

Sometimes a promotional item just makes sense, much like not having to explain a punchline to a joke! This Dental Floss dispenser makes an ideal gift come business card for dentists and those in the oral hygiene sector.


With 10 metres of mint flavoured floss, a mirror and full-colour printing, this business card sized promo item makes for a great business card that will be kept way beyond that of the usual paper cards that have little functional use for the recipient.

Smart companies are looking at creating a healthy environment for the workplace as a way of promoting emotional well being.

Healthier employees often mean –

  • Healthy employees are often happy employees which can lead to better customer experiences

How Evernote use Promotional Stickers to help customers and turn them into mini billboards

Stickers are a common promotional item that has been used for everything from political campaigns, cause advertising, supporting local football teams etc. They work as they are cost-effective on large scale, easy to ship and allow the recipient to show their support for their team, cause etc.

They come in many forms for different uses; like outdoors use, car bumpers, laptops etc. They also come made of different materials like epoxy domes, metallic, reflective and waterproof materials.

While marketers often use them for brand awareness, there are much more effective ways to use promotional stickers. A good case study is what Evernote did when they heard customers complain about employees using laptops in meetings.

Their response was to produce a laptop sticker that said –

“I’m not being rude. I’m taking notes in Evernote”


Their customers then became mini billboards for Evernote from meeting to meeting.



Notice when you buy an Apple product you get an Apple sticker in the box, these guys know what they are doing when it comes to leveraging loyal supporters.

Make your Tees Pop with 3D Screen Printing

3D decorations have been used for promotional products for many years, mainly to do with 3D embroidery and 3D pvc promo items. However traditional screen printing for t-shirts can also use this technology.

The Toy Story franchise created 3D printed t-shirts with the ChromoDepth® 3D technology. The print looks like a normal 2-dimensional screen print until you put on the glasses and then the t-shirt comes alive. This technology has many applications including printing on carpet, colouring books, packaging, promo tattoos etc.
