Candles – Light Up your next Promo

Promotional Candles make for a great year-round promotion. Promotional Soy Wax Candles are a must-have item to promote relaxation. Soy wax is completely biodegradable and burns clean with no black smoke or soot. Soy wax also has longer burn time than other candles.

By choosing the scented version of the candles you also get to tap into one of our strongest senses – smell. Sight, smell and physical touch, that’s 3 senses working with your brand! They are an ideal way of associating your brand with a warm and fragrant image.

Promotional candles are an effective promotional item in most industries. They work particularly well in the healthcare and real estate sectors or any sector that services residences like; plumbing, electrical, lawn mowing, handyman and pest control operators.


Sock it to ’em

Digital technology has revolutionised many industries and the promotional products industry is no different. Digital printing has allowed for greater flexibility by reducing the cost of printing in multiple colours, allows full colour printing, allows for gradients in logos and covers larger or complete area’s without being expensive.

While caps, polos and jackets have always been popular promotional items (and can all be digitally printed), socks have been an underused promotional item. With digital printing and the low quantities required (as low as 25) promotional socks are starting to take off.

They also make an ideal item for industry or product puns.

Watch out for Miners

Watches are well renowned for making ideal staff and client gifts, particularly for special occasions. In the mining industry they are often used as benchmark rewards for safety achievement. However due to the volatile environment on mine sites the selection of the watch make is of critical importance.

There is potential ignition of methane gas by an electric current from a battery powered watch. With a quartz watch you need a Mines Approved Watch. Another option is to use a watch with an automatic movement that has no battery or electrical power source or back up. The lack of electrical current by non-battery; automatic movement watches means they are already mine safe.

The back of the watch should be made of glass, so that the mechanical movement can be easily inspected (ie. mine security can check there’s no battery in the watch).

There are plenty of options with mine watches like varying waterproof or water resistance depths, styles and case options for extra presentation value.
