We're one of GE Energy's Brand Partners and here are a few of the promotional products we've produced for them this year. I'm not sure if you can tell from my photo, but the silver piece you're looking at is a ruler paperweight that looks just like a paper airplane. It was created for a division of the Operations Council Members. The customized bag that I have everything shown on, is made in the USA, 100% organic cotton logo bag. Here is the other side, which has a four color process customization showing a great clear image of a neuron:
It's great to work with GE, number one they are always eager to see new products that are out, number two they raise the bar for Absolute Promotions, most certainly and number three they keep coming back and appreciate unique Branding. One of my favorite clients to work with.
Oh my goodness, this was a fun project to be a part of. A referral from our client MEGAFORCE RECORDS. The band The Cringe was looking for a way to promote their new CD Play Thing. After a lot of thought, they went with this customizable Monkey's in a Barrel. Remember that game from when you were little? You can see from the artwork on their new album how it tied in:
Another unique promotional project we've been working on is for the launch of a new product called miniCHILL. You know how there are those energy drinks out there that hop you up on caffeine and other fun stuff? Well this drink naturally chills you out. It relaxes you and helps you mentally focus. From what I hear, combined with a little "Spirits",it's a totally different buzzz. "Twice as Nice" No calories, no sugar, no caffeine and none of that melatonin either. You should check it out. (We totally love our clients.) These guys are risk takers when it comes to promotions too, love that.
Please let me know if any of my male Branding friends run into these around the world. Tell me the location and I'll get you a free starter pack of miniCHILL.
A few of our clients needed some inexpensive giveaways that everyone could use. They went with mobile phone promotional products. You recognize the Driin Cellphone charger? I spoke of that in an earlier Blog. It rocks for recharging your cell phone or iPod and keeping them easy to locate and off the dirty floor. The other piece you see is to keep the screen of your cell phone clean. It is a little sticky cloth that adheres to the back of your device. You know how sometimes your screens get a bit of sweat or makeup on them? Well this little baby doesn't take up any space so you can still use your case, it can be rinsed under water and keeps its stickiness like new and it sends a positive Brand message every time your clients use it. I have one for my iPhone and Love it! I use it all the time.
This is a mouse pad made of recycled tires. It's a great promotional product for the eco conscience. I think there was a time when all that companies gave out were mouse pads. I think it's time we all get some new ones. Especially green mouse pads that look cool and won't break the marketing budget.
One more quick one:
I like these mints. They can fit in your back pocket, two location Branding opportunity, they hold mints and toothpicks. The rulers? The back is already imprinted full-color with the presidents of the United States, so that cuts down on a lot of extra charges for extra colors. The pricing includes your one color imprint on the opposite side. The best part? USA Union Made. Killer plus now days!
