Morning routines bring great branding opportunities with Reusable Coffee Cups

Nothing says daily routine like a morning coffee or cuppa’ so what a great opportunity and billboard for your branding/message. Reusable coffee/tea cups make a tremendous promotional product for this reason.

Daily use ensures daily exposure of your message as well as lowering the impact on the environment compared to the usual takeaway cups.

Reusable coffee cups give us the first 2 “R’s” of the Environment – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. They reduce the amount of disposable cups needed by reusing the same cup for every drink.

Ceramic Mugs

Branded Vacuum Drinkware

Branding on drinkware has been an effective promotional tool for many years. One study conducted by the Advertising Specialty Institute in the US revealed that 53% of consumers own promotional drinkware.


Branded Vacuum drinkware has the potential to add even more value to the marketer as they are much sought after by the consumer. The main reason for this is because they are –

  • Durable and long lasting
  • Better for the environment
  • Keep drinks hot for up to 12 hours
  • Keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours
  • They suit well for summer and winter campaigns


Desktop Marketing

Location and timing are important aspects of advertising, both of which can be hard to get right. This is where a little customer knowledge of your customer’s buying habits is good. If your customer is making purchasing decisions at their desk then this becomes the right location.

The next factor is timing, this can be a little more difficult. Unless you know the timing of your customers purchasing decisions, then best to go for a promotional product that will sit on the desk for a prolonged time.

Ideal desktop promotional items include pen caddy’s, mouse mats, mugs, water bottles, USB hubs, clocks, lamps, calculators and rulers.

A Promo with More Frixon

Pens have been a staple of the promotional products industry for decades. A PPAI study found that on average promotional pens are kept for 5.3 months – not bad for an advertisement that can cost less than a dollar.Frixion-Clicker-White-Pen-Side-prom_pen

The Frixon pens from Pilot are a great addition to the promotional pen range. They allow the user to erase what is written simply by using the tip of the pen. This not only has great practical use, it can make for some great puns, bylines and similes.



  • Unique thermo-sensitive gel ink formula disappears when erased using the special tip
  • Re-writable: erase and re-write repeatedly without damaging documents. No wear or tear!

When it is right to Puzzle your Clients

The vast variety of Promotional product options mean that we have a lot of opportunities to market our message. A promo product that has a tactile effect will normally give your brand greater exposure and resonance with the user. This is particularly the case with thought provoking items that command great attention.

Problem solving puzzles work best within sectors where people are problem solvers. Examples are Hospitalist (Doctors, Nurses etc), Law (Judges, Lawyers, Legal Aids), Education (Teachers, Administrators), Actuary, CEO’s, Investigators and Air Traffic Controllers.

Pictured here are wooden puzzles; which are not only fun and tactile; they also deliver a lot of branding options.
