Promotional Version of the YETI Rambler

83261z0Last summer we told you about the Force Copper Vacuum Insulated Thermal Bottles, our version of the still-popular S’well bottles. The Force has continued to be popular with our clients, along with many other products that are promotional versions of retail products.

The newest product that follows this trend is the Glacier, our version of the Yeti Rambler.

At 30oz this tumbler is huge, and will easily hold a day’s worth of coffee. It is made of double walled stainless steel with a copper vacuum, so it will keep that coffee hot all day too. Want to keep water cold instead? It does that too – for up to 16 hours. It’s the best of both worlds!

With pricing as low as $14.99, the Glacier is less than half the cost of the Yeti Rambler. You can find pricing and more details about the Glacier here.

If you’re looking for a great gift for your clients or staff to keep your brand top of mind this holiday season, look no further than the Glacier! It’s less expensive, comes with your logo and works just as well!  Contact your Account Manager today for more information and pricing.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring… and We’ve Got the Solution!

An umbrella makes a great promotional gift because everyone needs one, but who really wants to go out and buy one? You can also never have too many umbrellas – keep one in the car, one at the house, one at the office, and more!

A few weeks ago Peerless Umbrella, our go-to production partner for umbrellas, stopped by our office to tell us about what’s new and trending in umbrellas.

Read on to learn more about our favorite umbrellas!

What’s New – The Rebel

The newest addition to Peerless’ line is the most unique umbrella we’ve ever seen – the Rebel.

We’ve all been in the situation where it’s pouring rain as you’re running to your car, and you have to make a quick decision. Do I try to get my umbrella closed as I’m in the car and risk getting my car wet, or do I just get soaked and close it before I get in? The Rebel is the solution to your problem.

With an inverted design the Rebel closes away from you, keeping you dry as you get into your car or walk into a building.

Promotional Products as Ways to Say Thank You

Promotional products are frequently used as ways to say thank you to very important people.  They are used to recognize an employee achievement, participation in an event, or simply thank staff, volunteers, or even customers for their loyalty and support. We’ve created many promotional items over the years to serve as an appreciated “thank you” that has more staying power than a simple note. If you’re looking for unique ideas for your own organization, check out these case studies to learn how these companies thanked tennis tournament participants, employees, alumni and donors.

Her requirements were:

 – Convenient to use at Events

 – Easy to mail as a thank you

Plain and simple.

We have a few promotional items that fall under the “awh cute” category! Look at these pictures and see if you agree:

We partnered with Loyola First Year Experience to create this adorable gray wolf.  Additional animals are available. You can dress your school’s little critter with either a bandanna or a t-shirt.

For Milwaukee School of Engineering’s baseball themed promotional items last year, we created a Hank-inspired puppy for its Housing Department (the stray dog that the Brewers found at Spring Training).  Interestingly enough, Hank also won Dog of the Year!

Both the Loyola wolf and MSOE puppy are two examples of cute, fun promotional products that recipients are sure to love.

Tech Related Idea for High School Counselors

In one of our most popular posts, Top New Promotional Products for Colleges, we shared a few desk-related promotional ideas that could be given to high school counselors. Note pads, stone coasters, tech-stickers, pennants, and phone holders are just a few ideas that we include in our High School Counselors Showroom.  To keep on trend with new products in the industry, we wanted to spotlight a tech-related idea that high school counselors would find useful and fun.

Discover the Wedge Mobile Device Stand

The Wedge™ Mobile Device Stand is a fully customizable, colorful desk item that also can be used as a screen cleaner.  With 81% of all promotional products being kept because of usefulness, the Wedge will showcase your brand in a high-visibility work area for a long time.

 

 

 

The Wedge Mobile Device Stand and Cleaner

Helps keep device screens smudge free.

Side doubles as a screen cleaner.

The base can be used as a screen cleaner.

Artwork is printed on a single piece of fabric, offering a fully custom imprint area with full color dye sublimation for vibrant graphics. The base of the Wedge is available in standard grey or black, though other special edition colors are now available for an extra punch of color.  An antimicrobial coating prevents the buildup of mold, mildew, and odors. The fabric is 100% microfiber. It’s extremely soft and the entire item has a bean-bag like feel, so it’s easy to hold onto when cleaning a screen. The Wedge is handmade in the USA. Here’s a picture of the phone stand in use.

Mobile Device Stand in use

Colorful, multi-functional tech accessory will be appreciated by high school counselors

We recommend imprinting your brand name on the rounded, rectangle shape that is readily visible when the phone is in place for maximum exposure. In testing it out in our office, the Wedge held my phone at a comfortable angle, so it was both easy to read and touch the screen without sliding around my desk. Numerous colleagues are using the Wedge on their own desks because it’s such a functional and fun product.  It’s bound to be appreciated and will help keep your school top of mind with school counselors or other referral sources.

Spring Clean Up to Support Earth Day

As part of Magellan Promotions’ Giving Back Initiative, we participated in spring clean-up activities on Saturday, April 18th.  Along with Friends of the Hank Aaron State Trail and Milwaukee Riverkeeper, our Magellan crew of six ventured around Miller Park area, the largest volunteer site for the event.  In all, over 4000 volunteers would be cleaning up at 50 sites in the area!  Across town Julia Buraczewski volunteered at a clean up at Kletzsch Park.

Here were a few pictures from our day:

Magellan Promotions crew getting reach to clean up the trail

This marked the 20th Anniversary of the River Cleanup for Milwaukee Riverkeepers.  Their main goal is to make rivers fish-able and swim-able. Everyone who volunteered received a t-shirt with a fun design and numerous sponsor logos on the back.  As a promotional products company who runs t-shirts, we ALWAYS recommend t-shirts for volunteer days.  It’s a great way for River Keepers to gain more exposure in the community each time a volunteer wears and re-wears the shirt.

We found this kid's bike in the river!

Can you believe we found THIS in the river?!

As you can imagine, a lot of plastic bags, plastic packaging, and broken glass bottles were found along the trail. In some cases, larger pieces of debris were in and around the river. Our crew noticed a tire sticking out of the edge of the river and realized an entire kid’s bike was in there!  With a few extra hands and some elbow grease, three people pulled THIS out of the river.

Sunny day along the river.

Sunny day along the river.

We’ll have to revisit the trail when everything is in full bloom! It really is a beautiful space – one that we were happy to help clean-up as a small way of giving back.

Let us know if you participate in a spring clean up! Happy Earth Day!

Giving Back: How Roots Ethiopia used Promotional Products

As part of our Giving Back initiative, Magellan Promotions provides monetary donations and creates promotional items at cost to help non-profit organizations stretch their funds to better support their mission.

Roots Ethiopia – an organization that we supported through at-cost production of items – recently shared their story of their field team, who enthusiastically used the field bags and hats that we created. Here is a brief overview of the organization and how these promotional products impacted their work.

Supporting education and job creation in Southern Ethiopia is the main mission of Roots Ethiopia. Learn more about their organization and mission by visiting their website at www.rootsethiopia.org. We have had the pleasure of working with the organization’s founder, Meghan Walsh, who was kind enough to share their story of their recent trip to Ethiopia.

In December2014, Roots Ethiopia sent a team to Ethiopia for training and projects with field partner Meserete Kristos Church’s Hosanna Regional Office. The field team does everything locally, traveling by foot or public bus. Days are long and travel is slow, which makes field bags a desirable item, especially since they are difficult to find locally.

When Meghan attended the first day of training, they announced that they had these field bags prepared, and the entire crowd of community members cheered. One man even stood up and did a fist pump! Leaders gave 32 community members / field volunteers a bag stuffed with pens, paper, and a memory stick. According to Meghan,

 “The bags were a delightful way to start off a really meaningful 2 days of work! They set the tone of ‘team’ – and for that I am just deeply grateful.”

The baseball caps that were ordered at cost were passed out to all of the VIP assistants on the trip -drivers, translators, bag carriers, etc. This was a great way to show appreciation and raise awareness for Roots Ethiopia.

Imprinted baseball caps for Roots Ethiopia VIP’s

 “Your kindness allowed us to do this without any concerns for quality, and your ability to do this for us at ‘cost’ meant I could rest assured that we were spending funds thoughtfully and in the best spirit of stewardship. It means very much to a small organization like Roots Ethiopia to have your support and encouragement as we grow our program, all the while tending to the bottom line.” – Roots Ethiopia Founder, Meghan Walsh

It was so very rewarding to know that our promotional items were extremely appreciated and put to good use by the Roots Ethiopia organization! Such small things, such as a field bag or baseball cap, can have a much greater meaning and make a big difference, as Meghan described above.

For more stories on how Roots Ethiopia has made a difference for families and children, read about Tsehainesh pictured here.

5 Best Promotional Products of 2014

As we reflect on the year, we discussed the 5 best promotional products of 2014 with our team. These items were most popular among our clients, personalized and imprinted with their brand for connecting with target audiences. Without further ado, we present the list of trending items for the year:

  1. Phone Wallet: This phone wallet became one of Michael’s favorite new items early in 2014.  He’s used it for several months as his wallet on his iPhone. Our clients agreed with Michael, ordering the phone wallet for promoting their brand. It’s designed to work specifically with iPhones, but would easily adhere to other phones as well. Using a strong, 3M adhesive, the phone wallet is securely attached to the phone and snugly holds cards in place.

    The Phone wallet is a popular tech accessory.

  2. Charge it Up Power Bank: On the go chargers have been a big hit in 2014! We recently wrote a case study about how University of Minnesota Student Unions & Activities used the Charge it Up Power Bank as a prize to encourage student involvement.  This is part of the ever-popular, fast growing tech category of promotional items, which is a clear winner with tech savvy students, staff, and clients.
    UMN-Student-Unions-Activities-Charge-it-Up-Power-Bank

    The Charge it Up Power Bank easily charges devices on the go.

  3. Texting Gloves: As winter is upon us, we have run numerous orders for texting gloves.  These are a very useful winter accessory that could be worn daily to brave the cold. What an excellent way to showcase your logo!

    Another tech-related item – texting gloves – have been popular this year.

    We tested the texting gloves at the office. They worked well with our smartphones and kept our hands warm!

  4. Winter Hats: A warm hat is an essential for cold winters! This is one of our favorite, USA made knit hats because of its retro look with the knit-in lettering. Poms are also a fun, trendy feature.
