What’s Trending in the Promotional Products Industry for 2015?

With the new year underway, promotional marketing experts have spent January scouring the promotional products industry for the most innovative ways to promote your brand.

May 12

Items that could be used every day and make your life easier are a big trend as marketers want to ensure their products serve to benefit their prospective customers and make a daily impression.

Ever-popular items like pens, bags and cups appear with new innovations every year. For instance, bags with reflectors built in for safety are new this year, as are pens that can also be used as a stylus with touch devices. Even ceramic mugs with quirky additions like a chalkboard finish for writing notes on them are available. Every year, suppliers come up with creative solutions to liven up promo products.

As usual, we saw a huge surge in the number of tech gadgets as well. Chargers, Bluetooth speakers and triple USB ports were in high demand. Multitasking items like wireless headphones are indicative of our modern on-the-go lifestyles. Now, with the number of smartphones booming, accessories and cases are also increasing in popularity every year. Items like phone wallets with stands, tastefully branded, are popping up everywhere.

Wellness is a growing trend in promotional products. Water bottles are a big hit, especially those you can hold while you run, and some are even collapsible. Related to this trend are fruit infuser drops to flavour the recommended eight cups of water a day.

Sunglasses are still as popular as always, featured in a variety of fun colours and stylish options.
Customising apparel is a mainstay of promotional marketing. Recognizing the longevity of promotional apparel items, marketers are opting into sublimation printing for brilliantly coloured, long-lasting imagery that won’t fade as the item goes through multiple wearings and washings.

Video marketing is taking the promotional products industry by storm! Imagine opening a designer box of chocolates to find a promotional video inside – what a way to make an impression! Logoed packaging in general, “marketing in a box,” is becoming a big trend.

We’re excited to see how these new trends play out through the year.

 

Customised Products for Your Non-Profit Organisation

Most people think of promotional products as marketing tools for businesses to hand out at trade shows or to use as giveaways to customers. But it should also be known that the same products that help to brand businesses can also serve non-profit organizations in a similar fashion.

For non-profits, customized apparel and products can be multi-tasking wonders, especially at fundraising events. When your organisation hosts an event, your staff can be outfitted in customised t-shirts, polo shirts or hats. Non-profit employees work hard and appreciate the gift of customised apparel that reinforces their passion for the cause. In addition, customised shirts and hats display professionalism while still being fashionable and comfortable. Your staff members will also continue to wear these items on their off time, spreading word of your cause and branding your organisation.

Custom clothing is also a great gift for volunteers. It shows your appreciation for their efforts and is a great way for them to proudly display their support of your mission. With so many clothing options to choose from, you can tailor the items to suit the specific needs of you volunteers. Fixing a structure outside in the cold? Provide them with windbreakers or plush hoodies. Spending the afternoon landscaping in an underserved community? Hand over some water bottles or visors for sun protection. Other useful items at events are tote bags, lanyards and rain gear all bearing the organisation’s logo. These thoughtful gifts will not go unnoticed and will increase recognition of your work with every use.
