Cool is an understatement. Meet Lumio: it's a light that looks like a book - rechargeable, made of FSC-certified wood, durable (made of Tyvek), magnetic (strong magnets are built into the covers), and obviously very portable. It also comes with a leather strap with a strong magnet, so you can turn the covers 360 degrees to make a lamp, and then you can also hang it. We can laser engrave on these, for a very beautiful, clean look. The packaging is also fantastic.
It's almost Christmas. I know that sounds weird seeing that we're still in July, but if you're planning on giving out holiday gifts to employees, partners, or clients, it's really the time to start brainstorming! Come the holiday season, stock tends to run low since everyone is purchasing their holiday gifts (the worst thing is finding out that there is low/no more stock when you're ready to produce something), not to mention all factories are in high-gear because of the influx of orders, so rush productions may not be available (we aren't even allowed to place orders for ourselves during the holiday season!). If you're looking to produce a custom item, it's definitely time to get that wheel going. We can even explore custom packaging, say for one item or for a set of items, print a custom card, and we can also handle drop-shipping everything nationwide/worldwide. We like to make this easy for you ;)
Below is a slideshow of a snippet of some holiday gift ideas:
So if you've been reading my blog, you must know that I'm in love with these wireless speakers that came out this year. No Bluetooth, no wires. Just place your phone on top and your sound is instantly amplified.
A few fun products for use in the office, company events, parties, etc:
Great giveaway for conferences, meetings, welcome kits, everyday use. This blue one is my favorite, for now, since I tend to go from notebook to notebook to test them out. It has a really nice faux leather cover with a rounded elastic band - it's very retail looking ... now imagine your brand on it - beautiful! Matching twist / stylus pens are also available.
I can't tell you how heavenly these covers feel. They're made in Italy and the cover feels like real leather. People LOVE these and they come in various sizes and types. We can also produce a journal with a colored elastic band + a custom button (can move up and down the band), which makes for really beautiful, sleek branding (also known as the Lanybook).
With these saddle stitched journals, you're able to take branding to the next level by creating custom sets. For example, we could take three journals and wrap them with a custom printed bellyband. The three journals can all have different covers. We could also include one tip-in page (printed 4CP on one or both sides) where you can include more information - more information about your organization, schedule of events, event map, contact information, etc. Total branding at its finest.
I've been a huge fan of stone paper since I heard about it a few years ago. First off, let me explain what stone paper even is. It's a mix of 80% stone (calcium carbonate) and 20% HDPE (high density polyethylene - a non-toxic resin to act as a binder) - NO trees OR water are used, at all. To add to it, it's also tear-resistant, water-resistant, oil-resistant, photo-degradable and antibacterial. AMAZING, right? What's even more amazing is the feel of the paper and how dreamy it is when you write on it - your pen just glides over this extremely smooth, eco-friendly paper. These come perfect bound, spiral bound, and saddle stitched.
Stone paper bags are also available (nice gift bags).
A few promo products that I love & are integrated into my daily life:
These are almost always with me - portable charger (life saver), journal, felt tip pen (my pens change all the time, I actually have a bunch in my bag), phone with wallet/stand, retractable charger with three tips, 5-in-1 buddy charger, AC/USB adapter (another life saver).
Never without my Lahlouh CamelBak & 24 oz aspen stainless steel vacuum insulated water bottle (for coffee, tea, iced tea, iced water ... maybe iced coffee next ... cocktails ... you get the idea)
Awesome desk piece. It has perforated sheets so just hold that top part down and cleanly tear your notes off!
My poppers - proudly displayed and used for popper wars.
Ask me for one!

This t-shirt hoodie from Anvil came out at the beginning of the year - I saw it at the annual PPAI show in Vegas in January (the biggest promo tradeshow we go to every year), and I instantly gravitated towards the mannequin it was on. Made of 4.5 oz 100% ringspun cotton with the heathered colors being 60/40 poly/ringspun cotton. The heathered ones are more soft because of the poly/cotton blend and the solid colors are 100% cotton so they feel like a regular tee. This comes 8 colors (pink for ladies only), in a ladies and a mens version. Great for employees, gifts, walkathons, wellness programs, or just to lounge around in etc.
There are so many speakers out there on the market. We can brand brand name ones from Bose, Harmon Kardon, Beats, Marley, i-Luv, iHome, Jawbone, Sony, you name it. There are of course, tons of fun, great quality non-brand speakers out there. As always, I recommend seeing a sample before purchasing - testing it out is the best thing to do; you want to be sure it sounds great. Browse through the below slideshow for a few images/quick info:
Sometimes we need a little pick-me-up - these fully customizable energy shots, energy drinks, and energy strips are great giveaways at events (also hackathons, tradeshows, for welcome kits, etc). USA-made and FDA approved. Sugar-free available.
