  1. Do you really need to Eject an Mp3 Player or USB key?

    USB Keys and Mp3 players are always one of our best seling items. However have you ever wondered why you need to go through the process of locating the small icon to eject a flashdrive? To me I always found it a waste of time. Especially when I am running late and I simply need to unplug and switch off quickly. So I decided to do some research on why.

    Basically ejecting a flashdrive tells the computer to stop writing files and reading files onto the flash memory.

The file would likely be totally corrupted and not be able to salvage. In many instances though even though you have not accesssed any files nor issued commands to access your USB key it still may be in the process of either being read or written. This is because running in the background your computer may have small

  2. Multi Functional Promotional Items

    Multi Functional Promotional Items

    Whats a multi functional promotional item? Well think of a Swiss Army Knife and you would be on the right track. A product that simply has multiple functions for multiple uses. Why is this impotant in promotional items? Well the most important aspect of promotional items is definitely functionality. There are of course many other aspects which make a product terrific and desirable however if an item simply does not have a function or a purpose it essentially wont be appealing. An item that has no function is normally referred to as an art piece. ie. definitely not something that you would want to use as a corporate branded product. Now all of the items on our website all feature one thing in common in that they all serve a purpose and a function. However there are a few products that stand out in that they offer multiple functions. This makes the item especially appealing and if you were using the product as a fund

  5. Types of Fabric Used In Promotional T Shirts & Polos

    Polo Shirts and Tee shirts are by far our biggest selling types of apparell. We can have polos and tees either screen printed with your logos or embroidered. These shirts are all available in a variety of colours and a variety of price points to suit your needs. The great thing I have noticed is that most people do look for something thats in a median price point. Basically most people try to strike a balance between budget as well as having a garment that people would want to wear and that is of resonable quality and importantly stylish which is definitely a sensible way to select a promotional tee shirt or polo shirt.

    What makes a shirt appealing is the overall cut and style (which we will discuss on a later post) as well as the type of fabric used. Different fabrics used on different shirts will lead to remarkable differences in both the shape of the shirt as well as the colour. The most popular way to gauge a shirt quality is by GSM. That is Grams Per Square Metre. Using

  6. Winter Promotional Products

    Winter is upon us! I love winter. The cool breeze in the morning is really refreshing. The bad thing about winter is that a lot of cool promotional giveawaysare no longer appropriate. Things like: Flip flops, Beachballs, Beach Towels. They are definitely no longer as appealing. Another bad thing about Winter time is that it tends to be a very grey and dark affair. Most clothing is on the darker side.


    • Winter promotional items can combat the season's darker colors by offering colorful and functional products.
    • Popular winter promotional products include custom beanies, logo scarves, branded gloves, and reusable coffee cups.
    • By selecting practical and appealing winter promotional items and businesses can maintain brand visibility.
