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.

What a great way to make your message stand out.


Colour Up for more Engagement

If you can increase a client’s interactivity with your brand, you then create greater engagement, which leads to greater retention of your brand and brand messaging. A great example is this car wrap by Bear Designs for the  Bulldogs NRL team


Steeden footballs also did a similar promo item with the colouring-in ball below. Also, we have promotional tote bags, colouring in books and a lot of other items that can create greater interactivity with your brand.

Colour-in promo products work well not just for kids, they can make for a great team builder, icebreaker for corporate events and training.

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!
