We had a blast re-connecting in person with so many customers earlier this month at the ASI Show Orlando and the PPAI Expo in Las Vegas. If you weren’t able to join us, here are some of the products that caused a buzz at our booth.
All Eyes on Tech
According to recent research, 83% of IT leaders expect at least half of work in the future to happen outside the traditional office. (1) Technology will continue to transform not only our work but also our lives. With our exclusive partnership with SCX Design (2), we’re bringing upgraded tech accessories to the promo products industry.
Visitors to our booth were impressed with several features of this young French company’s lineup. First, the quality of these products is evident when you hold them in your hand. In fact, most SCX Design® products come with a 3-year warranty (cables excluded). The rubberized finish gives each accessory an upscale look; the premium gift boxes, which are standard packaging, elevate the experience. What really wowed the crowd, though, was their light-up logos.
These three products especially stood out:
If you need a high-quality charging cable at a great price point, choose the SCX Design® Eco Quatro Item #32461. Compatible with Apple® 5-Pin, Micro-USB, and USB Type-C devices, this smooth UV-coated and metal cable is as versatile as it is sleek. The cords are made from recycled PET, making it an eco-conscious choice as well.
Practicality meets twenty-first-century technology with the SCX Design® Notebook A5 with Power Bank 4000 mAh Item #32472. This multifunctional padfolio features a built-in power bank with a 3-in-1 integrated cable and a removable notebook that is ideal for jotting notes or a to-do list.
Looking for a high-end executive gift or something special to reward years of service? The SCX Design® Sound Bar 2X5W Item #32483 delivers superior sound quality and has a built-in microphone for teleconferencing.
For the Love of Mother Earth
Products with an eco-conscious bent aren’t just trendy, they are what a growing number of end-users expect, with 77% of Americans showing concern about the environmental impact of products they buy. (3) We showcased our KG Factor items in Orlando and Las Vegas, which are designed to lessen environmental impact through longevity. Since debuting our Keep It. Give It. philosophy in 2020, more than 1,300 of our items have received the KG Factor designation. (4)
Products made of recycled PET were especially of interest to booth visitors. Here are 3 of our top picks in this category.
Fanny packs are back in style, and the KAPSTON® Willow Recycled Fanny Pack Item #16194 sports muted tones and leatherette accents for a sophisticated look. Made with 54% post-consumer recycled PET, the Willow will hold all your daily essentials and can also be worn as a sling.
The soft feel of the Recycled PET Blanket Item #26231 makes it hard to believe it started its life as hard plastic. Made entirely from recycled materials, this soft throw has a finished edge for a polished look.
The translucent Recycled PET Dart Pen Item #56041 features a stamped recycling symbol that lets your customers know you are doing your part for the environment. The contoured barrel makes it easy to grip this plunger-action writing instrument.
Take It Outside
Many people have spent more chill time outdoors over the last couple of years, and gear made to enhance that experience was popular with those who stopped by our booth. We have some tried-and-true products that fit the bill whether you relax in your backyard or hit the trail.
Like to enjoy beverages that come in both a slim can and a traditional 12 oz. can? With its elastic sides, the Koozie® Duo Can Kooler Item #46345 allows you to kick back with either! It folds flat to fit in your pocket or bag so wherever you are, your drink will stay cool longer.
For a full day of fun on the water or in the mountains, grab the Koozie® Olympus 24-Can Kooler Backpack Item #16190. Made of water-resistant tarpaulin, this rugged soft-sided cooler has top and side carry handles along with padded shoulder straps.
