Snag This Branded Bento Box, Fresh With Your Logo


It’s the ultimate lunch-on-the-go trend – the bento lunch box. So, what is a bento box? Very simply, it’s a super-portable, super-functional box that packs everything needed for a healthy, delicious on-the-move meal – right down to the utensils.

Bento boxes have been in-demand lately as people shift to making more healthy mealtime choices – nearly three in four Americans say they focus on healthy eating, and the majority are working to integrate more fresh foods into their day-to-day.

Encouraging Healthy and Varied Eats

That’s where custom bento boxes come in. With spots for everything – proteins, fruits, veggies and, even, a little treat or two, it’s easy to portion every aspect of a to-go lunch, while ensuring there’s a bit of everything. Gone are the days of popping a sandwich and a handful of cookies and calling it “lunch.” A bento box forces your hand – and your healthy eating a bit, by encouraging a few smaller bites spread out over a variety of foods.

For kids, it’s a slam dunk – because there are so many options, little lunchers can take a taste of a new food or two, without having to worry about not liking their meal. If green grapes aren’t their thing, they can move on to baby carrots, almonds, string cheese or whatever snack-style add-ins landed in their bento lunch box that day.

Good for You, Good for the Environment

Not only are bento boxes good for you and your clients, they’re good for the environment – and the wallet. Our Two-Tone Bento Custom Lunch Box with Utensils is top-rack dishwasher and microwave safe, eliminating added lunchtime waste – no more plastic forks and spoons, aluminum foil or disposable bags getting tossed post-meal. Simply wash, rinse or wipe these bento boxes and they’re ready for the next meal.

And because they’re reusable, your customers, your vendors and your employees will save serious bucks – no more buying all of the disposable goods needed to pack lunch every day. While it may not seem like a lot, costs such as napkins, brown paper bags, aluminum and plastic wraps, disposable utensils and containers, for starters – can easily cost $25 to $30 per month.

Over a year, they could be spending $300 to $400 on supplies – or they can use a branded bento box. With the Two-Tone Bento Box, they’ve got compartments for everything, plus reusable utensils that slide right in. Simply pack, snap closed and go.

Easy for On-the-Go Snacks

Lunch time isn’t the only time for bento boxes. Recipients can load up compartments for road trips, long flights or, simply, days on the go. Sometimes it’s hard to stop for meals and snacks – we get it. Now simply close, seal and toss in a bag or drawer. Even liquids, yogurts and other tough-to-pack eats will stay contained in these bento boxes.

Align Your Brand with Their Go-To Gear

Every time your customers dig into their custom bento boxes, they’ll have a big, bold reminder of your brand and your relationship. The top panel includes a 2” x 2” space for branding, screen printed to last. Standard printing includes a single color, but you can add additional imprints or colors, as needed.

Triangular Promotional Pens Give The Ultimate Exposure


If you’ve counted promotional pens out of your marketing mix, we’ve got two words for you: think again. While these classics seem to be everywhere — at trade shows and events, ATM machines, realty offices, fundraisers — there’s a reason.

Because they work.

And promotional pens don’t just work in that, “sign on the line” way. A recent ASI Global Ad Impressions study found that more than half of respondents were more likely to do business with a company who gave them a promo pen. Think about that for a minute.

The right promotional pen is the ultimate impression-maker and the perfect premium to drive engagement and action. Nine in 10 people have at least one promotional pen or other branded writing gear, and 20 percent have collections of 10 or more in rotation.

In short, pens are small but mighty, packing a serious punch — and, despite their high value, even super-durable promotional pens often come in at under $1 per piece.

Really, what could be better?

Before you answer that, consider July’s Product of the Month — we’d argue this is that “better” pen…a triangular pen with a triangular-shaped barrel that instantly helps it stand out from the classic pen crowd. And, given its three brandable sides, it’s easier than ever to get more of your message front-and-center.

Brand any and all sides in full-color — logos, contact information, brand statement, anything. Then pack up a pack-and-go — these pens are totally versatile, totally portable and totally ready to work as hard as you do.

Hand out a bunch at your next event, conference or retreat and you’ll see firsthand what we’ve seen for years — these triangle-shaped pens are actual conversation starters ideal for sparking an instant connection with clients, customers, vendors, employees and others.

Maybe it’s the shape, maybe it’s the finish or maybe it’s the fact that, again, everyone loves a promotional pen, but these tri-ad promotional pens just work. And that’s better for business.

Insulated Wine Tumblers: The Go-To for Corporate Branding This Summer


This month’s Product of the Month is the perfect item to usher in your summer. That product? Our very-popular 12 ounce Triple Insulated Wine Tumbler.

Our insulated wine tumbler

While enjoying wine has long been a summer staple, enjoying it in tumblers has been making serious waves lately. As people get more educated about wine and, even, some of the health benefits associated, vino consumption continues to rise. The average American drinks close to three gallons of wine per year and rising–prosecco consumption alone is up 11% year-over-year. And with those added sips comes added demand for on-trend ways to sip–enter the Insta-worthy tumbler. This Pringles® iteration went viral instantly, while other more sleek, chic tumblers are popping up on celebrity feeds from coast to coast.

That’s where these promotional tumblers come in.

You won’t want to miss this ultimate summer essential.

Inspired by retail best sellers and available in four colors–red, blue, black and white–this insulated wine tumbler comes complete with over-sized printing space, making it ideal for getting the word out. Choose from full-color printing or laser engraving–either way, your branding will be on full display anytime this insulated wine tumbler makes an appearance. And, judging from our own insiders, it will make a lot of appearances this summer.

Once in-hand, your customers and clients can get their sip on anytime, anywhere. With a spill-resistant, clear lid there’s no mess and, with triple insulation, hot drinks stay hot for 12 hours and cold stay cold for 24. That makes these promotional tumblers perfect for virtually anything your clients heart desires–that weekend wedding, the company picnic, a day at the beach or, simply, kicking back in your backyard with a PM cocktail. Cheers to that.

Our advice? Hop on the vino trend and place your order for these go-to tumblers. Perfect as a one-off client gift or great to give as a set, you’ll be amazed where they pop up–and that could be a great way to engage clients even more. Consider challenging them to a #tumbler contest with your brand name or summertime campaign messaging. The more times they surface your tumbler, the more chances they’ll have to win.

You’ve no doubt seen these small-but-mighty earbuds popping up everywhere, from your AM commute to the adjacent treadmill to your colleagues trying to get (and stay) focused. Wireless Bluetooth® earbuds are one of the hottest items on the market today thanks in no small part to the release of Apple® AirPods®. These sleek, chic earbuds have made these products a household name – but consumers are paying a very hefty price for the look, the feel and the dual microphones for calls and speech detection.

The good news: May’s Product of the Month lets you gift your clients and partners with spring’s must-have tech accessories without breaking the bank – and with an added promotional layer that ensures they associate your brand with their new daily must-have.

 

What’s So Great About These Custom Earbuds?

These promotional wireless earbuds come complete with a charging case for up to 90 minutes of easy, on-the-go use – when the LED indicators on the case turn blue, you’re good to go. Better still, there are no cords to untangle, no fraying wires and no searching for a charger when you’re out. Another perk? Our insiders tell us these earbuds are more “ear-friendly” than others because they’re slightly larger and stay in the ear more comfortably.

Not only are these wireless earbuds ideal for powering through a morning workout or catching up with the latest podcast but, with a full 33’ Bluetooth working range, it’s easy to take calls on the move, whether your phone is in-hand or not.

Our True Wireless Earbuds are the perfect way to ride this powerful tech wave, while getting your brand name front-and-center on a “go-anywhere”, “do-everything product” – a product that’s trending in a BIG way. Brand your collection and get in on the action and the well-earned buzz surrounding these hot products.

The Best High-End Promotional Water Bottles


Branded water bottles have long been a go-to for diverse companies looking to make an everyday statement. Not only are these premiums universal – who doesn’t love an easy-to-carry bottle that keeps drinks cool? – but they’re affordable, durable and leave a lasting impression on the recipient and everyone who spots them sporting their branded bottle.

But that is just the beginning. More recently, the category has had a serious moment – thanks to a rise in high-end water bottles. Instagram and the boom in wellness culture has pushed brands like S’well® into the spotlight, making luxury water bottles a must-have among trendsetters, tastemakers and everyday sippers alike. Now a true accessory with major cache, your clients are, no doubt, investing in – or, simply, coveting – premium water bottles. And that opens up an even bigger opportunity for your brand.

 

The Benefits of Premium Promotional Water Bottles

Your job, then? Take a page from the premium water bottle playbook and brand your own collection of Insta-worthy pieces. Again, these bottles are incredibly useful, incredibly durable and designed to go the distance – that means long-lasting branding that’s constantly on display, as bottles adorn customers’ desks, locker rooms, cars and conference rooms.

Not only that, but you’ll be giving a nod to your the greater good – specifically, the environment. Every time your client fills up, they’re skipping paper or plastic cups – and that adds up to a major landfill reduction over time. All in all, it’s a great message for your brand. By simply being associated with this must-have item, you’ll create increased awareness and more positivity – and that’s powerful.

And that brand ripple effect doesn’t just stop with the recipient and the people they encounter mid-sip. Given the popularity of luxury water bottles, there’s a good chance your stylish premium will make its way to social media, generating even more attention – and more engagement for your brand.

To maximize sharing, consider adding a note asking recipients to tag your brand on Facebook or Instagram, for a chance to win another unique premium. Given the popularity of these bottles, that added exposure could translate to significant earned media.

The Best Branded Water Bottles

If you’re considering branding your own high-end water bottles, it’s important to weigh the benefits and final “look and feel” of each, so you can choose the right product for your business. While tons of options exist, most fall into four main categories:

Insulated Water Bottles

Your clients are, no doubt, constantly on the move – and they need a premium water bottle that keeps up. For most, that means an insulated bottle that keeps drinks cooler, longer.

Stainless Steel Water Bottles

Many insulated bottles are, also, stainless steel. Given their finish, these bottles have a sleek, chic appearance that makes them easy to carry, easy to slip into a bag and easy to drink from, even on the move – they’re also incredibly durable.

Better still, because these bottles are so on-trend, your customers will no doubt want to show theirs off, and that will likely mean added eyeballs and added engagement.

Branded Water Bottles

Some of the top brands in the market are putting their names, logos and messaging on premium water bottles. Take advantage of this major trend wave by promoting your business with these bottles.

Glass Water Bottles

Glass water bottles inherently look and feel high end because of their delicate nature. Also, because glass doesn’t absorb taste or odor, these bottles tend to look and feel cleaner and fresher longer.

Our pick, all bottles considered? April’s Product of the Month: this Stainless Vacuum Tumbler. Available in five colors including a fun and on-trend teal, this 20-ounce tumbler is made of 18/8 stainless steel with a powder coated finish and dual wall vacuum seal construction. And, with a flip-top lid and straw, it’s easy for your customers to sip anywhere, anytime. To us, this one’s the best of the bunch, combining premium branding real estate with the benefits of an insulated bottle and sleekness of stainless steel. Best of all, this tumbler is on sale and starts at just $7.99 per piece.

Our Stainless Vaccuum Tumbler
