Currently I am drawn toward promotional products that assist with technology. Everyday essentials such as iPad sleeves, Bluetooth enabled speakers, checkpoint friendly computer bags and battery power sticks help us make it thru our busy days. The smallest gadget, like a stylus helps the user navigate their tablet or smartphone without fumbling or making fingerprints on their screen.
And I have seen a lot of unique styluses out there. Models that have a screen cleaner embedded in the case, pen/stylus combos, and even a pen/stylus/highlighter combo! When I discovered the Vanessa bracelet/stylus I was wowed. A rubberized bracelet that has a stylus tip and that can triple as a bookmark? So cool!
The modern colors and sleek material are not to be ignored. My favorite is the green. Choose from 6 PMS shades to coordinate with your logo. This product would be unique and cost effective to mail to your favorite customers! They will be wearing your brand around town! Up to 3 colors can be screen printed on the center of the band.

Mobile devices from smartphones to tablets are becoming hugely popular and are taking a slice of the pie in terms of total web traffic. KISSmetric put together a great infographic on how Mobile Devices are Changing Business. Interesting to note that mobile (phone & tablet) accounted for about 20% of the total web traffic in the US in 2012 and mobile is projected to surpass desktops as the most commonly used device to access the web worldwide in 2013.
