We spent nearly a week in Vegas at our industry conference and trade show. It left us inspired, and a little sore. Have you ever been to a trade show in Vegas? If so, you’ll know what I mean by being sore, I think my mileage on day one was nearly 7.5 miles. We worked hard for YOU searching out what’s new and exciting this year (you’re welcome) and are sharing them in this blog post. Here they are:
Collapsible Silicone Water Bottle: This bottle is perfect for people that tote around a water bottle with them everywhere they go. When it’s completely expanded it can hold up to 20-oz. of water. It’s made of food-grade silicone, and stainless steel. It’s dishwasher safe, and the coolest feature is that it can hold beverages that are as hot as 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has a secure air lock which prevents leakage. Pricing starts at $19.95 each.
Here’s what people are saying about this rad bottle:
“Love this convenient little water bottle! I can finally bring a water bottle with me wherever I go without adding too much weight to my bag. It also doesn’t take much space because I can collapse it when I’m done with my water. Definitely drinking more water than before because of this. Nice colors too!”
“This water bottle is great for traveling especially when flying. It’s compact and when you fill it it holds well.”
Round Power Bank: This is definitely not your ordinary power bank! This attention getting power bank is shaped like a disc, and comes in a tech-friendly color palette. Check out all the cool colors below. Pricing starts at $29.90 each, minimum order 12.
Webcam Cover: We recently did these for our Christmas gift, but one of our suppliers rolled out this version right after the New Year. It features a full color imprint on the entire cover. However, you feel about this, it’s undeniable that these little guys will be a constant reminder of your brand as they sit front and center on someone’s laptop webcam. Pricing starts at $1.20 each, minimum order 150 pieces.
Custom Shaped Wood Cell Phone Stands: Cell phone stands have been around for a while, but we haven’t seen anything like these. These are made from natural wood, choose from: Oak, Maple, Mahogany and Walnut veneers. They are custom etched, or you can even do your own custom shape. Check out all these cool options below. Pricing starts at $7.00, minimum order 25 pieces.
Boxes and Displays!: A custom box is the icing on the cake. Sending out a mailer? Ditch the plain corrugated mailer or kraft box, and let us help you create a cohesive look with your own custom box that gets the “wow” right from the time the recipient receives it on their desk.
Executive Bluetooth Speaker: is it a Bluetooth speaker, is it an award? Well, actually it’s both! This Bluetooth speaker even has a built-in light! Pricing starts at $70, minimum order 25 pieces.
Pocket Tee: The contrasting pocket with a custom imprint is where it’s at this year (at least in our opinion). What was so interesting about this sample was the imprint on the bottom right hand corner of the t-shirt. Minimum order is 24 pieces, as low as $13.42 each.
Specialty Metallic Emblems: What we are most excited about isn’t necessarily the polo or sweatshirt, but the decoration methods shown. This polo is laser etched with traditional embroidery on top. What’s popular in apparel this year is metallic designs as you’ll see on the left sleeve.
