Top 10 Hacks for PopSockets


PopSockets are a fun and functional accessory for electronic devices. This repositionable “cool tool” grip expands and collapses by way of an accordion mechanism. This mechanism “pops” up whenever you need to chat on the phone, text a friend, watch a video or get a better grip on your phone, tablet or eReader. It’s simple to use as you simply click on the PopSocket and it will pop up to create the grip area. The PopSocket has two “pop” stages (or levels) to suit your need and comfort level. By comfort level, we mean a “sweet spot” that can easily be gripped by the operator. PopSockets are made of hard and soft plastics that are designed to expand and collapse 12,000 times! If the PopSocket unsnaps from its base, just snap it back together.

PopSockets conveniently fold down to carry in a bag, purse, or pocket – we promise you’ll barely notice it’s on the back of your phone!

Billboard-size exposure for your brand!

PopSockets provide prominent viewing for your logo. Imagine advertising that’s seen by 67 times more people than a Super Bowl commercial. In terms of branding, the most valuable real estate in the world is the backside of the mobile device. The average person makes 8,000 estimated public texts and calls per year. *

This translates into 8,000 impressions per PopSocket per year – so about 1670 impressions for every dollar you spend. Compare that with a Super Bowl commercial, as a $4 million commercial has a potential 100 million viewers, generating about 25 impressions per dollar. PopSockets are 67 times better (and 100 times cooler).

 *Estimate based on Business Insider, March 22, 2013, “CHART OF THE DAY: Kids Send a Mind-Boggling Number of Texts [3,800] Every Month.”

Here are the top 10 uses for the incredible PopSockets:

  1. Activities Accessory: Smartphones slip out of your hands easily, so PopSockets come in handy when you are doing various activities like powerwalking, bicycling or running. You can even use a PopClip to mount your phone on your bicycle, treadmill or elliptical.
  1. Easy Grip:PopSockets make great grips, making activities like taking one-handed selfies, hands-free talking or texting incredibly easy and smooth.
  2. Video Calls:You can easily mount your phone on your laptop while on a video call, allowing you to go hands-free so that you can multi-task by continuing to type on your laptop while you talk. You can also use the stand so that you don’t have to hold your phone or device.
  3. Media Stand: PopSockets make amazing stands. You can ‘pop’ them for easy use as media stands to watch videos, take group photos on a self-timer or even use your phone as an alarm clock by the bedside.
  4. Protection from Wet Surfaces:This is a true bonus of the PopSockets. Sometimes you can’t help it, your smart phone ends up on or near dirty or damp surfaces. Considering the damage this can cause your phone, the added protection from the PopSockets stands will be truly appreciated. Pop sockets are made from polycarbonate, TPU and polyurethane making them washable. Hence, you can mistakenly put your phone on wet surfaces like by the sink, floor or the kitchen counter without it getting your phone wet. This also means your phone won’t get dirty from resting on all those surfaces throughout the day, our PopSockets will “take the hit” and they are far easier to clean!
  5. Earphone Management System: You can wrap your earphones / earbuds around your PopSockets to keep them in one place and tangle-free. Now you won’t have to wrap them around your cellphone, covering up part of your screen.
  6. Double Duty for Large Devices: PopSockets make holding big devices such as tablets and e-readers easy, comfortable and secure. You can also use them for smaller devices such as GoPros.
  7. Slide:How many times have you passed your phone so someone else can see your photos, watch a video or talk to a friend? If you want to pass your phone to someone on the other side of the table, use the PopSockets side and your phone will easily slide across the table without you having to get up.
  8. Gaming: You can turn your phone/ tablet into a joystick by attaching two PopSockets to the back of it.
  9. Fidget Toy:Playing with PopSockets is addictive! Try to stop popping them, we bet you can’t. They are great stress busters and fun to fiddle with. Your kids will love them too!

Repositionable PopTek Technology

Each PopSocket comes with a PopTek adhesive pad, a thin layer of reusable, residue-free, adhesive gel. You read that correctly! The pad is reusable and the gel leaves no sticky residue. The gel forms an adhesive bond of various strengths with different surfaces. It attaches to most phones, tablets and cases.

If your PopTek pad gets dirty when detached, simply wash it with soap and water and let it air dry completely to return its original stickiness. PopSockets do not stick to all devices and cases – especially those made of silicone or those with a waterproofing coating.

PopClips add value to your giveaway!

Your customers can easily purchase a companion piece to holster the logo’d PopSockets at many stores and shops. Remember, we told you this promotional product came right off the retail shelves. These custom cellphone accessories are called PopClips and they mount to nearly any surface which makes the PopSocket you gave customers and employees loved even more! With this holding clip adhered to the dash of a car, they’re ready for hands-free driving. Or, put a clip on a mirror to watch the news while getting ready every morning. Add a second clip to a bedpost, slip in the PopSocket and watch movies on any device.

About Pop Sockets from ePromos

These useful promotional products were created in 2012 in Boulder, Colorado, by David Barnett. David is now the Chairman of the Board after funding his invention with an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign. ePromos has PopSockets for as low as $4.49 and will imprint your logo on each one. Full-color imprinting is available at an additional fee. Included with each PopSockets is an insert card with instructions & recycled packaging.

All About Promotional Fidget Spinners


Fidget Spinner

First, let’s get something straight: a fidget spinner is a simple, small handheld “wheel” that can be spun. That’s it. All spinners do is spin, but that’s why they’re so alluring! They spin, yet they perform at a different level as well — custom fidget toys can provide comfort in stressful situations.

The Latest Fad for Kids and Adults in Stress Relief

Although fidget spinners are popular new toys, being a toy is not what makes them especially interesting. The marketable part of this toy is that the spinner helps the user focus better by not fidgeting. These gadgets were designed to provide a sense of comfort by calming the nerves, and easing stress while potentially helping with symptoms due to ADD, ADHD and autism. They can also be used for individuals who bite their nails, daydream, or otherwise need help staying focused. More simply speaking, they’re plain fun.

To stay focused, alleviate anxiety, or avoid boredom, you simply hold the middle of the tri-fidget hand spinner between your thumb and index or middle finger. Then, spin the arms/prongs and let it twirl! These custom stress relievers will fit comfortably in your hand, and they easily spin with a quick flick of the finger.

The fidget spinner design is a simple construction. They are small devices with three prongs that surround a bearing in the middle that allows the product to spin in your hand. Typically, they are made from metal or plastic and come in a variety of designs and colors.

Opportunities to Use Fidget Spinners in Your Marketing Efforts

No one knows exactly why fidget spinners are so popular — not even the product’s inventor. However, we recommend them as a fantastic giveaway for customers or prospects at a tradeshow or conference or just for fun! These will also make a great promotion for all grade school classrooms, healthcare agencies, clinics, waiting rooms, and any other business geared towards kids or families. After all, who doesn’t need an outlet for their nervous energy or a bit of focus when boredom sets in? These are great for customers, employees, clients, friends and family, adults and children for the genuine mental health benefits.

For the office, this product is nearly silent — so individuals can fidget away without disrupting their co-workers! These handy stress relievers can help distract cubicle neighbors that might otherwise be clicking their pen or tapping their feet. They can even help to keep people alert and awake during meetings that seem to drag on. A few months ago, several staffers at Forbes tested out some fidget spinners at home and the office, and most were pleased. One of the positive outcomes they noticed was that they got up from their desks less, instead putting their energy into fidgeting with the spinner — rather than taking mindless trips to the break room or vending machine.

And here’s a value that you probably never considered. When people are playing with a fidget, they’re not staring at a screen. For a short time, they step away from their phone, iPad and video game.

Fidget Toy Features & Brand Customization

Now let us tell you about some other benefits of the fidget. They are made of durable ABS plastic with aluminum alloy bearing. They are very simple to maintain. There are no sharp edges so fingers, so there’s no worries about employees or potential customers getting injured when it’s spinning at high speeds. It’s lightweight, spins on many hard surfaces and can rotate for about two minutes. Their compact, portable size means that they can easily fit into your pocket, tradeshow tote bag or purse.

Choose the spinner you want from our full selection of Promotional Fidget Spinners. We carry these toys in a number of colors, and offer various customization options. This means you’ll be sure to find the perfect toy that fits your brand aesthetic.

Pick a classic Solid Fidget Spinner in an amazing selection of colors, or choose a Mix-n-Match Fidget Spinner that allows you to choose colorful combinations of spinner and button colors.

The total size of the fidget is 3”x3” with the imprint area being ¾” in diameter. You can choose to pad print or screen print fidgets in a single color or in full, brilliant color. Think about how much exposure your brand will get when it’s carried about in public, and at the fidget tips of your potential clients!

The fidget hand spinner will be appreciated by anyone who has ever felt stressed, anxious or needed a way to release that energy without being disruptive – so jump on the trend and add fidget spinners to your marketing efforts.

Trend Alert: Best Promotional Items, Giveaways and Swag for 2017


BlogGraphic - large

Recently, our staff from ePromos attended the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) Expo in Las Vegas. We had our eyes peeled for emerging trends and innovations in custom logo merchandise. This includes identifying the best-of-the-best products, and new decoration methods to help our customers’ brand look amazing and be effective with their marketing spend. ePromos helped you find the best promotional items in 2016 – now check out our top ten trends in promotional products for 2017 below!

1. Retail Appeal – Products Plucked from the Store Shelf

It’s referred to as the “retail effect”: the products you see on the shelves when you go shopping are now available as promotional products. Not only will you find popular brand names at ePromos, you’ll also find lower priced retail lookalikes that may better fit your budget. To garner more brand awareness, look to this latest trend. Retail-related products have a high perceived value and quality — and the quality of your product has never been more important. Even better, you can add to your logo to put your personal, unique touch on it. Take it one step further with retail packaging, which is a practical way to get more eyes on your logo! Aesthetically pleasing packaging will increase the perceived value of the gift you are giving.

2. Refined Look of Copper

One of the biggest trends right now is copper. Try promotional products made entirely out of copper, or with copper accents and lining that adds to the performance of products. Copper used in drinkware adds insulation for extended thermal retention, keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for longer. Brand names to look for using the insulation qualities of copper are Grizzly®, and Pelican®. For the tasteful look of copper, check out our Copper Moscow Mule Mug, Copper-Insulated Tumbler to enhance the aesthetic of your at-home bar. Your customers will love Copper-Colored Water Bottles, which are a stylish piece to tote around the gym or town on a hot summer day. These trends are likely to remain for their fabulous look, their ability to fit any budget and their functionality.

3. Matte Finish Credibility

Not all that glitters is gold! Look for products that have this aesthetic — sometimes called powder coated. It’s an elegant, soft matte look that everyone is loving! This look is a new trend in promotional products, and an original idea that will help you successfully promote your brand. A powder finish absorbs light rather than reflecting it, so this finish reduces highlights and you can see more of the branding. Customers with discerning taste will appreciate these items because with a powder polish, you get the appeal of a different texture. Many hot promotional items are getting a makeover with this trendy appearance.

4. Bluetooth Earbuds Make Great Corporate Gifts

Today everyone is connected and dependent on gadgets, continually upgrading to current technology. That’s why useful technology products remain on our Top 10 list, especially Bluetooth-enabled products. Wireless earbuds allow the recipient to listen to their favorite music, book or podcast with cord-free convenience. Some features our collection of Bluetooth earbuds include: hours of playback time, volume control, built-in microphone, power switch, charging cable and earbuds easily pair with another device. Some of the best corporate gifts are ones that recipients can use both inside and outside of the office. New gear and gadgets are a valuable product that recipients will appreciate for a long time, keeping your brand on hand every day.

5. Outdoor Inspired Promos

Some of the best giveaways are when you keep your client, customer or employee’s personal interests in mind. For nature lovers and adventurers that often head outdoors, gift promo products that fit well into a rugged environment. Even products that simply remind one of the great outdoors are slated to be extremely popular in 2017, as they were showcased at the Expo. If your customers and employees lean more toward the rugged side of recreation, you can effectively advertise to those enjoying activities and relaxation that are a bit more robust. Fishing excursions, field days, team building expeditions, camping and boat shows, sporting games and more are perfect events to reach those individuals with a passion for the outdoors. Forget your run-of-the-mill standard promo items – outdoor gear are unique corporate gifts that will be sure to impress. Gear up the people you most appreciate with binoculars, coolers, survival products, chairs, picnic blankets and more.

6. Go for Full-Color Full-Wrap Printing for One of the Best Promotional Giveaways

Endless printing will spice up your marketing efforts. To wonderfully represent your brand, try the newest way to create stunning full-color images that wrap 365 degrees around your product. The illusion created is that the image has no beginning and no end. ePromos offers this unique option, so you can design your promotional products with artwork that wraps around the entire cylinder-shape of tumblers, bottles, glasses and more. Full-wrap printing creates an opportunity to expand on your overall marketing communication by using imagery that is seen no matter which way the product is turned. You can tell more of your story both visually and with text using this exciting new decoration method of printing. This seamless and continuous 360-degree design will change the way people are looking at your logo.

7. Smart Technology

Considering how everyone today is connected and dependent on gadgets, the trend of giving away Technology items is here to stay. In 2017, technology is still strong trend and “smart tech” is the favorite for B2B marketing. Technology that comes in handy when people least expect it reflects well on your brand. For useful items at work, home, play and information, look to the favorites: Power Banks, Bluetooth Earbuds, USB Drives, Stylus Pens and Bluetooth Speakers. You can plan on the tech trend to remain a trend because they are becoming more cost effective and “smarter” by the day. You can guarantee your brand will be seen because these products have the potential to be used on a daily basis. Virtual Reality is still hot for a smart tech gift. Hand out these goggles and you’ll transport your customers to anywhere in the world. You can speak to one of our Brand Consultants about making your very own VR application featuring your brand! If you’re looking for one of the best trade show giveaways, look no further. Attendees will flock to your booth for quality smart tech gadgets.

8. Soft-Sided Special

The next big trend that is sure to build a stronger relationship with customers and show your appreciation to employees is a soft-sided backpack. One of the best in the world is Engel…a legend in reliability®! These rugged 23-quart personal carrying coolers can be a backpack or a tote and they have an endless amount of quality features. First, this cooler keeps anything cooler longer with one-inch thick foam insulation. Its interior radiant barrier liner reflects the sun’s long-wave heat radiation to further enhance the backpack cooler’s cooling capabilities. Under typical conditions, the backpack cooler will hold ice for up to three days. In addition, the liner is removable so you can get food easier and clean the bag. Made of 500D tear-resistant polyester, these totes can carry almost anything you want to keep cold. Plus, the waterproof TPE coating easily cleans up after any adventure. The reinforced bottom is flat with non-skid feet. These backpacks are unique gifts for employees, and a thoughtful way to remind them you care about easing their commute and making their lunch breaks more convenient. These backpacks are available in white or Realtree Camouflage for an additional fee. You also get to co-brand with a brand of excellence — Engle® is printed on the front pocket.

Cellphone Holder Stylus Pen – ePromos announces this Clever Product of the...


#1 Clever Product: 4-in1 Stylus Pen Cellphone Holder
ePromos bringing conversations to you!

Promotional products need to be more than practical – they need to be clever. This muColor Selectionlti-function Phone Holder Stylus Pen needs a bit of explanation…so it won’t automatically be thrown in a swag bag. Prospective clients may stare at this gift for a minute before asking “What’s the hinge for?” There, the conversation has started! When you explain all of its hidden features, suddenly an ordinary pen becomes more. Now it’s a powerful marketing tool that represents a company as innovative, creative and effective.

 

This tech accessory was designed to do it all. It has four functions: a pen, stylus, cellphone holder and screen cleaner…all in a slim-sized tool.

One end of this tool is a twist-action ballpoint pen that writes smoothly in fine black ink and has a comfortable grip. And the pen retracts into the stylus. This stylus has a rubber silicone tip which has a soft capacitive touch…just a big word that means this stylus uses the same electrical properties of the human touch to detect the user’s touch, allowing much finer scrolling precision. A stylus also reduces fingerprints on touch-screens.Pen and Stylus in 1

At the other end – on the top of the tool is the microfiber screen-cleaning tip. This cleaner easily wipes away excess oil and dirt from the screen. And, the best benefit is the cleaner is always ready to use, right on the spot.Screen Cleaner

In between the stylus/ballpoint pen and the screen cleaner is the pen clip that fastens to a book cover or stack of papers to carry anywhere throughout the day. The clip also has another unique use.

Here’s where this tool gets cool. Before the explanation, imagine an easel for tech devices. The unique barrel bends on a ratcheted hinge and with the adjustable pen clip, this stylus/pen/cleaner becomes a cellphone holder to prop up a phone at just the right angle for viewing in portrait mode to watch a favorite movie or play a video game.

Hinged Phone Holder

Available in colors to match any brand, this 4-in-1 device is 6” high and ½” in diameter providing a big ¼”x1-1/2” imprint area on the plastic barrel. Imagine your logo and company information on the barrel for maximum exposure. These innovative pens work with an iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Galaxy, Android…nearly all touch screen devices. This product information wouldn’t be complete without saying this tool folds to fit into a pocket or bag.

For a tradeshow, convention, conference or college fairs, these multi-functional promotional pens will certainly make a long-lasting impression on anyone!

If your tradeshow giveaway can’t do all this, call a Brand Consultant today and take a stand with this 4-in-1 device! Best yet, ePromos offers Free Shipping on this 4-in-1 pen, too!

Note: The Phone Holder Stylus Pen is one of the products in the ePromos Perfect Tech Kit Gift Set. The Set includes the exciting pen, Power Bank, Car Charger, Cellphone Wallet, Cleaning Cloth, Clip Tablet/Smart Phone Stand, Earbuds with pouch and a carrying case.

Product Focus: Shaker Bottles


Blender Bottle 4 Styles

Health and wellness is as important as ever and when it comes to corporate promotions, drinkware is always a big hit. After all, hydration is one of the most widely recommended elements of healthy living. According to the Institute of Medicine, the adequate intake of total beverages for men is roughly 13 cups (3 liters) per day, and for women about 9 cups (2.2 liters) per day. So it’s no wonder promotional drinkware is an integral component in the list of merchandise we recommend for health and wellness promotions.

The hottest new type of promotional drinkware is the shaker bottle, which not only provides the ability to hydrate, but also ties in with the popular trend of powdered supplements for pre-workout, post-workout and general meal replacement. We believe this trend adding powder to water will stay popular for many years, making shaker bottles a good investment choice for your advertising or promotional dollars.

First Off, What is a Shaker Bottle and What are their Key Features? 

There are many types of shaker bottles with different features and functions, but generally a shaker bottle is a non-electric cup or bottle with an internal mixing mechanism that simply works by – you guessed it, shaking. Features include, screw on lids, different types of drinking spouts, the mixing system itself, and optional measuring guides, flavor infusion, and dry powder storage.

Some shaker bottles have floating components like a mixer ball or whisk. Others, like the Cyclone, have keep their mixing mechanism stationary. When you shake, the friction does the blending, and since many of these powders do not fully dissolve having the ability to remix with a few shakes is a great benefit over electric machines.

Size also matters. Bottles range from about 12 ounces to as large as 28 ounces depending on your needs. There are also a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and functions as well, so finding the perfect bottle to fit your active lifestyle is a painless process.

How do you use the shaker bottle?

Shaker bottles are pretty easy to use: open them up pour in your liquid (typically water), use the optional measuring scale often molded into the bottle. Add your powder, screw the lid back on tight, and shake. Re-shake as necessary.
