LaserPoint Awards and Promotional Solutions has just returned from the largest trade show in the promotional industry, and wow, did we see a lot of great new products and ideas! We’ve put together a list of some of the hottest items this year for you to check out. As always, contact us to learn more about any of these small business marketing tools.
Drinkware is always big, and this year is no exception. Full-color print is now more available and more affordable, and some cool new styles — including expanded vacuum bottles — are popping up.
Yeti is finally in the promotional market, for those of you who want the branded name. For others, there are many, many bottles with the same qualities as Yeti, at reduced prices.
Technology is still huge; there were scads of phone holders, phone stands, virtual reality glasses and much more. I used a couple during the show that I loved, especially the silicone phone holder that I was given about halfway through the first day. What relief, to be able to use your phone while having both hands free for a glass of wine — oh, I mean a cup of coffee!
Full-color printing is changing the apparel market. Yes, LaserPoint already does embroidery and screen printing, but color sublimation techniques allow the printing of full color on the front or back of a shirt — or even the entire shirt.
It’s fun to watch how trends develop. Two years ago, selfie sticks were a very popular promotional giveaway. In the time since then, the price has dropped considerably to make room for the next trend.
Here’s a closer look at a few of the specific items that we at LaserPoint Awards & Promotional Solutions think will be hot in the coming year.
