Promotional Products We Love From The PPAI Expo

Christen G. – Retail Marketing & Events Manager

Sherpa Zip-Up

“This was a really exciting find for me! It can be hard to find a lot of options when looking for sherpa apparel, but this promotional product was very impressive and the best I’ve seen.

It looked very similar to the high-end brand versions found in retail but at a more budget-friendly price. And, It was also incredibly soft and so unbelievably comfortable.

It’s the perfect promotional product for brands who love staying on-trend with the products they give their customers and employees.”

– Christen


Asobu Drinkware®

“These drinkware products from Asobu® are just too cute and SO FUN! All of the designs look clean and sophisticated, while also providing a lot of practical and useful features.

The colors and materials used in these promotional products felt very high-end too, which is very important in delivering a great end-user experience.

The Asobu® line definitely puts a creative spin on a huge staple category.

– Christen

Promotional products for business travel

The Sky Clip

“With business travel being as popular as it’s ever been, this seemed like a great promotional product for employees who frequently travel for business and use their mobile device for work and entertainment.

This product provides an excellent solution to a very common travel problem (not having anywhere to put your phone) by giving you a designated place to put your phone when traveling.

It even keeps the phone closer to eye level, which helps improve posture and saves your neck from unwanted aches and pain.”

– Kevin


Frank Green™ Bottle

“Going green and choosing organic products continues to be a very popular trend, especially with important initiatives like limiting the use of plastic.

With that said, this bottle isn’t just beautifully designed, it’s also an eco-friendly promotional product that fits right into the green/organic category.

And, it’s pretty cool that this product will soon have Visa/Apple pay capabilities, which will allow users to pay for their coffee by tapping their bottle to the POS device.”

– Kevin

Nate E. – Business Development Manager

Kanga Kase Mate®

“This is a great alternative to bulky and expensive coolers. Basically, it’s a koozie for a 12 or 24 pack. And like the tagline says, it’s definitely “kooler than a cooler”.

The Kanga cooler keeps drinks cold up to 7 hours, making it a perfect promotional product for the beach, pool, your next hiking adventure, etc. They are also highly customizable and all custom orders ship free!”

– Nate


Goodr® Sunglasses

These fashionable, performance sunglasses are geared towards runners, which makes them a great promotional fitness product.

You have the ability to create customized, co-branded sunglasses with custom colors, logos/graphics on the lens and arm, and even branded retail packaging.

It’s a great product for clients who are looking for high-quality, performance sunglasses at a better price than most other retail brands.”
