Luxury Custom Branded Vacuum Water Bottle

Custom branded Water Bottles have been a big seller over recent times in the promotional products industry. This has come about for the following reasons –

  • Greater environmental mindset from the consumer who wants to see less plastic waste
  • Consumers are increasingly conscious of regular water intake
  • Companies are wanting the branding to last a lot longer
  • They work great if your branding is required on the client’s desk or while they are out and about
  • The Vacuum sealed options allow for cold drinks to stay cold for up to 24 hours or hot drinks to stay hot for 6- hours

This 500ml double walled vacuum drink bottle pictured is a good example of a high-end quality water bottle that achieves all the points above. It is made of stainless steel, is BPA free, has a stunning shiny lacquer with matching screw on lid. The bottle laser engraves with a stainless steel finish.

Fun Facts about Sunglasses

Fun Fact #1:
The Luxottica Group owns almost every notable brand of sunglasses sold globally. This includes massive licensing deals with fashion brands like Prada and Chanel.

Fun Fact #2:
While sunglass trends change from year to year, they seem to always circle back. The famous “Wayfarer” style is reported to be the best selling style in history!

Fun Fact #3:
Shielding your eyes from the sun dates back over 1000 years with Inuit peoples wearing flattened walrus ivory with narrow slits to help block out the light reflected from the sun.

Fun Fact #4:
UV blocking sunglasses weren’t introduced until the early 1900’s. By the 1920’s sunglasses started to become more and more common, thanks in part by the popularity with movie stars.

Fun Fact #5:
Most importantly, maintaining healthy eyes is no joke! Making sure to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays is an essential element to ensuring healthy eyes and vision.

Protect your Clients in this Heat

One of the consequences of a hot summer is hopping back into your car after it has spent some time baking in the sun. Car (auto) Sunshades can protect your clients and their cars while delivering you a great branding opportunity.

The use of sunshades inside a car on bright sunny days helps to reduce temperatures by about 8 to 10 °C. They certainly make quite a difference! Besides helping to keep the cabin at comfortable temperatures, they also help to protect our car’s interior from discoloration and cracking. (ref. http://www.all-science-fair-projects.com/print_project_1438_91)

This means your AC has to work overtime to reduce the temperature, making it not only uncomfortable but using more fuel in the process.

Also, let’s not forget how hot the steering wheel can be touch and if you are wearing shorts or  a short dress (it is summer!!), how hot it can be on the legs.

 

We have loads of options to supply you with custom branded car sunshades including with a full colour all over print for extra effect.
