Trending Now: Trend #5 Mobile Tech

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.

This is a trend you can’t ignore and luckily we have plenty of products that are designed to enhance our fast-paced mobile lifestyle.  Our Mobile Tech products feature the newest technology and cutting edge gadgets from tablet cases and re-charging devices to cell phone accessories like microfiber cloths and earbuds.  Don’t let that word “technology” make you think that everything is expensive… there are plenty of inexpensive promotional products that will allow you to dip into this trend without exceeding your budget.  Here are some of my favorites:

 

Stylus with Cleaning Cloth features a sleek barrel that pulls apart to reveal a hidden screen cleaner.  Earphone jack keeps your stylus attached and ready to work.  Great mobile tech item under $2!

 

The Xoopar Robo Powerbank is a clever robot with adjustable legs and arms that powers your mobile devices.  This was designed to cater to proud tech geeks… believe me, this is a huge market!  Imagine the delight when they receive this cool gadget.

The Microbuff Mini is a cute microfiber cloth that features repositionable Sticky Pad Technology® that allows you to grip it tightly to back of most gadgets without leaving a sticky residue.  Remove from the back of your phone, clean your screen and replace.  Another great inexpensive mobile tech product as low as $0.98.

Brookstone® Leather iPad Stand with Sleeve allows you to easily and comfortably view your iPad while on the go.  Sleeve secures tablet to your hand or arm for easy viewing… talk about enhancing your mobile experience! It also folds into a multi-angle stand for ultimate viewing.

Do the majority of your clients have smartphones and tablets?  These accessories may be the perfect branding opportunity.  Check out more great Mobile Tech products on our pinboard or on our website.

NPR Hosts Their First Swag Sale Event

Last weekend NPR hosted their first ever warehouse sale where public media fans lined up to buy NPR swag and meet their favorite personalities. It was deemed a big success as lines formed outside its Washington D.C. building.  They sold everything from your basic t-shirts, coffee mugs, window clings, and beer koozies to bizarre items like Carl Kasell plush dolls and pillows.  They incorporated social media into the event by using the hashtag #NPRswag to tag pictures of you and your NPR merchandise.  Check out NPR’s blog to see a slideshow of fans and their merchandise.

Heather’s Product Pick of the Week: TakeOut Tumbler Infuser

So it’s pretty much common knowledge that as part of a healthy diet you are supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day.  I try to do this everyday and I’ve also eliminated soda from my diet.  Most days I’m content just drinking my water, but I recently found a new product, the TakeOut Tumbler Infuser that makes getting my 8 glasses of water easy and fun!

When I first got my sample of the TakeOut Tumbler Infuser I checked out the quality of the tumbler. I was pleased that the straw fit tightly in the lid and the double walled acrylic construction was well made.  For branding purposes, the full color wrap around insert gives you plenty of space to promote your company or organization.  The infuser basket also easily snapped in and out of the lid which made me immediately start thinking of creative recipes for infused water.

Megan’s Product Pick: Mini Stripes!

Now that summer 2012 is fully underway, it is time to think about clothing that you can wear on vacation. I am fully into the nautical trend this year, and love the look for men and women alike. One of my favorite nautical staples is the stripe. I think stripes are classically cool and can be flattering when styled right.

The mini stripe is a pattern that can be worn by just about anyone. Since the stripes are subtle, they will not enhance any flaws. So, you can be on trends wearing stripes, but in a tasteful and forgiving way. I love these new tees; they have the right amount of classic and edge. A one-color logo screen print would look great on these!

The Men’s mini stripe notch tee: Made of 100% ring spun cotton, this tee is so soft to the touch! Choose from 3 classic stripe combinations. Love the contrast tipping around the v-neck too!
