CUSTOM 3M POST-IT NOTES

Did you know custom 3M Post it Notes were created by accident?

While attempting to develop a super-strong adhesive at 3M, a scientist accidentally created a low-tack, reusable and pressure-sensitive one.  Without a functional purpose at the time, the idea as a paper reminder circulated internally at 3M until Press n’ Peel was released in 1977.

THUNDER SERIES NON-WOVEN TOTE BAGS

Non-woven tote bags are owned by 29% of U.S. consumers; and that statistic is from 2012.

Non-woven tote bags are a personal favorite of ours for many reasons.  First, in event settings, the right design and quality material can almost guarantee attendees will be excited to become walking billboards for your brand.  Let them throw your competition’s marketing materials in a sturdy tote with your company logo to gain an edge in overall visibility.  From the initial gifting and physical handing of the tote to the receiver, to the benefit it provides them lugging around catalogs and product samples all weekend, non-woven tote bags continue to promote your brand long after the initial event.  Many are kept for two to three years and in high traffic areas such as kitchens and vehicles.  With the recent plastic bag bans in several cities, eco-friendly alternatives like the non-woven are certain to become more prevalent in the retail environment.

7 in 1 STAINLESS STEEL GOLF TOOL

Personalized golf products are extremely popular and well received, but who wants to hand out a logo’d tee that gets destroyed before delivering your brand’s message?  

Aiming for an item with a long shelf life and high-perceived value is going to be most effective for this audience.  Whether sponsoring a Scramble golf tournament or rewarding V.I.P. clients you will see on the course, one custom product you can’t go wrong with is the laser engraved 7-function Stainless Steel Golf Tool!

CUSTOM BIC TRI STIC PENS IN 48 HOURS

According to the Advertising Specialty Institute, logo’d writing instruments are the most commonly owned (50% of U.S. consumers own at least one) and the most often used promotional product at 18.2 times per month.
