Branded Blankets South Africa
June 30, 2017
Branded Blankets South Africa – Branded Blankets can go a long way in South Africa. A company looking to do some good can make a wonderful donation of blankets to those in need, or a hostel company can keep travellers warm by investing in some of our great branded blankets. The truth is that in winter, everyone needs a little extra warming up. A warm, snuggly blanket can be just the thing to help keep a puppy warm during winter, or help a mother and child stay warm in the coldest nights of our year. We’re very fortunate to live in a country that doesn’t reach the climactic extremes of the North, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t feel the cold too. The perfect way to combat that is with a blanket. We have blankets for sale in bulk, with lots of different branding options.

Fleece blankets


Fleece blankets are some of the most common ones that you will see around. They are incredibly popular! They’re warm and cosy as well as being soft! A fleece blanket can be an awesome promotional blanket, as they’re fairly cost effective in terms of production. They are also a great way to have your brand get known out there.

Our top seller is the Cuddles Fleece Blanket.

Why brand a blanket?
Well, from movie theatres to concerts that offer blankets as part of their service, they’re a pretty great investment and they can really improve your standing on a company if you’ve got something warm to snuggle under in the chill. Fleece makes for lovely, plush blankets! It’s also one of the items requested by animal shelters during winter. Animals, particularly the young and the old, who are commonly found in shelters, can really feel the cold.

Cocoon Fleece Blanket And Bag

Try as shelters might, there’s often not enough warmth to go around, and a donation of fleece blankets can really go a long way towards warming an animal’s body and their heart and help them have a second chance at finding their forever home.

Picnic blankets


Picnic blankets are another kind that we stock! We have a whole range of picnic blankets, some waterproofed, some fleece. These blankets make for awesome gifts, encouraging people to spend time outside and in nature! They’re a little more geared towards summer than winter, but a picnic blanket with a water proofed base is a great way to enjoy those crisp winter days without getting wet around the seat from any wet grass that might be around.

It also makes just about all weather picnic weather, which is a wonderful wat to enjoy the outdoors. Promotional picnic blankets are a great way for your company to encourage people to get out there and enjoy the great wide yonder!

Embroidered Blankets


Embroidered blankets are a super great way to get your branding onto the blanket. Often, we only offer embroidery as an option for branding on blankets because printing doesn’t always take very well on fabrics like fleece. However, embroidery does, and embroidered fleece blankets look and feel amazing! An embroidered blanket looks fantastic and it makes a definite impression.

Embroidered blankets. We use this method to brand directly onto the blanket, but we do often print onto carry straps for a more subtle branding solution if that’s what interests you. Embroidery is done by stitching thread into a pattern on the fabric. We do it by taking your design and programming it into our embroidery machines, which do it much more quickly than hand stitching.

Our embroidery costs are calculated by how much thread is used in the design, or per stitch. Embroidery is also a great way to add colour to your blankets, as our machines can stitch designs in up to nine different colours!

Printed blankets


Printed Blankets are usually printed via screen printing onto the straps on the parts that don’t have that delicious blanket texture that we all love so much. The softness of the insulating fabrics used to make blankets don’t always lend themselves to printing. So rather than give you a branding option that won’t look as good as it could, we would rather give you a smaller screen print and a larger embroidery area so that you can have the best looking blanket that you could possibly have.

Corporate blankets


Corporate blankets are a fun way to commemorate an event like a concert or a carol service that the company had. Even a company sleep over that could be a lot of fun, and it could really help the team bond. A corporate blanket can have a lot of benefits, from keeping staff warm behind the scenes to being something that you can offer to clients and customers when they are feeling the cold. A corporate blanket is a really fun and creative way to show off your company brand, and what a fun time you can have at your company.  Even a day care could benefit from corporate blankets for naptime, as sleep is an important part of a child’s development.

Custom logo blanket



embroidered logo blankets
Your blanket is something special, and we can give you personalised blankets as well as a blanket with logo. Custom Logo Blankets that are unique to your company or to you are a great way to celebrate your individuality. Custom blankets are also a fantastic way to set you and your company apart from anyone else. It’s a way to show off your pride in your company and your logo!

Gift blankets


Gift blankets are a fantastic way to give back to the community. You never know who is a little colder this year than they were the year before, and a great way to take care of your people is with blankets. Another fantastic way is to gift blankets to charity organisations who help the homeless, who suffer greatly when the temperatures drop. A gift of blankets is the gift of warmth that may mean the world to someone. Animal shelters also ask for donations of blankets around this time of year, as our four legged friends also feel the cold, and those who need the shelters the most often aren’t in any kind of position to take care of themselves.

Branded Blankets South Africa


A blanket may just be a square of cloth, but that square of cloth holds the promise of warmth and comfort, and caring too. And sometimes that’s the greatest gift that you can give someone, a gift that can be helped into being by Branded Blankets South Africa

Brand Innovation stocks a great range of corporate gift blankets.

Gifts for End of Year
June 29, 2017
Gifts for End of Year – the end of the year is fast approaching. It seems as though 2017 has whooshed past. It’s halfway through already and it was only February last week. Or that’s what it feels like. But seeing as the middle of the year is upon us, now is a good time to start thinking about the gifts that you’ll be giving people in December. End of Year Gifts are a really popular way to thank people for all the hard work and effort that they’ve made over the course of the year, or if it’s a gift for your client, it’s a way to thank them for the business that they’ve given you.

The end of the year can be a great time to look back on the things that have happened over the course of the last twelve months and think about all the things that you’re grateful for. Getting a present can really make someone’s day, and it can really make them feel special and appreciated. A gift is a really great way to thank someone, because it shows that you were thinking of them.

This is why corporate gifts are so important, and why people start their end of year shopping in July.

It’s nice to get your ducks in a row before the end of the year actually hits, and you have to rush around from store to store. When you have a lot of staff and you want to include everyone, buying gifts can be quite a process. And it can take a while too.

They’re roomy and can be beautifully coloured, which is a really great way to complement your logo. Though it says for beaches a beach bag is another bag that can be very easily applied to other areas of the country, like a picnic in the bush, or a bag to take towels down to the pool or the river. The African summer can get very hot and a cooling dip is a really great way to regulate your body temperature and have fun at the same time.

The same study says that people are three times as likely to be loyal to a brand that gives them a gift, and twice as likely to support them in future.

A gift is a powerful token of appreciation, and a pretty fantastic way to strengthen the relationship between you and your client. Giving someone a nice gift, with a personal note can go a long way towards furthering your working relationship. And it’s just a nice thing to do!

The earbuds are stored in the clear tube of the body, and the feet act as a suction cup that you can attach to the phone and then use it as a stand!

High end corporate gift ideas


  • Montblanc
  • Gary Player
  • Cross
  • Parker
  • Balmain

High end gifts are for those really special clients, those big investors. Or everybody if that’s what you want to do! Having a high end gift is a really awesome way to thank someone and to show how much you value them.  Of course that might not necessarily be the case, in Japan there is a strong tradition of gift giving in business, but it’s the act of giving and not necessarily what’s given that makes the impact.

On the other end of the scale you have China, where a brand name gift is considered to be a sign of good fortune in business and the more highly priced the gift and the more well known the brand, the better. Cultural differences can be a good thing to consider when gifting someone, especially if you’re intending on getting them an exclusive branded product.

Montblanc is one of our most popular exclusive brands. It’s a company with a long history of beautiful quality. Founded in 1906, as a small company that was selling mechanical pencils, the signature snowflake logo has come to grace a wide range of products from those world renowned pens to fragrances and cufflinks. We also have a range of beautiful Montblanc purses and wallets, so that you can have the best and most beautiful products for your gifts. These gifts are made from genuine leather and metals. Some of the cufflinks have stone accents and the pens are made out of their black precious resin. We’ll even engrave a plaque in the presentation box of these beautiful pens for you.

Gary Player is a great brand to use for your executive gifts because not only is it the line of a local ledgend Golfer, but they’re also beautifully high quality and locally made, so if you’re looking for a range of products for someone who golfs, then Gary Player has a range of bags, clothes and golfing accessories to make up the perfect gift for you.

Cross Pens make fantastic gifts. They produce ranges of pens for every occasion and they even have a really beautiful selection of pens for the new Star Wars movie, and for Marvel superheroes. Cross pens have also been a long time staple in the Whitehouse, with many presidents having used these beautiful pens. The contract with Cross was officially signed under Bill Clinton, but since then every President has used them. President Obama made a change from the classic Cross Townsend model to the Century II, a tradition that the current President has continued by ordering 150 Cross pens for his term in office.

Unique gifts for customers

We also have some great new and unique gifts for customers. These include technology gifts, French products and beautiful made in South Africa creative gifts. Please email us and ask us for ideas and we will send you some sure to be perfect options.

Branded Beanies
June 23, 2017
Branded Beanies are on the rise! Sooner or later the Starks are always right; Winter Is Coming. And with winter comes a drop in temperatures and the need for warming winter woollies! Or fleece-ies, as the case may be. Whatever your preference for winter gear, the fact of the matter is that the time has come to start wearing it!

Whether you’re longing for summer or can’t wait to see your own breath before you even get out of bed in the morning, we cannot deny that winter is upon us so we better make the most of it!

Winter gear looks great, that is undeniable. A cosy pair of gloves, a scarf or a beanie pulled down low over your ears to keep them snug, it’s a cosy look and it lets you enjoy the chill weather with impunity.

One of the most fun things about winter is beanies. Beanies are fun and warm, they come in a variety of different colours and fabrics, and it’s always fun to watch people going about their commutes in multi coloured hats!


Some of our awesome beanies:


  • Alaska Fleece Beanie
  • Colorado Beanie
  • Team Spirit Beanie
  • Team Colours Beanie
  • Elevate Beanie
  • High Visibility Beanie


A great way to get your brand into the mix is to brand a beanie! A branded hat is a very effective summer time promotional product, but it’s equally effective in winter. Hat time is all year around, it just depends on which hat!

Corporate Uniform Beanies


Corporate uniform beanies are an awesome way to keep your staff snug while they are going about their work! A work beanie a great way to make sure that your corporate uniform looks as awesome and on point in winter as it does in summer!

Corporate uniform beanies are also super cute. And a great touch that will show your employees how much you care about them and want them to be as comfortable as possible while they are at work. Being too cold when you’re trying to do your work can really throw off you groove.

Your head is one of the places on your body that loses the most heat and a beanie is a fantastic way to keep that heat in so that you retain your body heat a bit better. So by giving your employees a warm and snuggly beanie as a part of your corporate you are not only letting them know that you care, but you’re also helping them. A warm employee is a happy employee!

It’s also a fun way to show team spirit. When you have all your employees together and wearing their beanies, it can be a great show of company pride! You’re all wearing the same uniform after all, and working towards the same goal. Say it loud and proud by wearing it on your head!


Promotional Beanies


Promotional beanies are again, a great way to show people that you care about their warmth, comfort and wellbeing. But this time it’s not just your employees. This time it’s your clients, your potential clients, everyone you can reach with these promotional products. A beanie can be worn in winter to celebrate an occasion, or to cheer on your favourite sports team. A Bokke beanie is a great way to let everyone know who you will be supporting this winter!

A promotional beanie is also a great opportunity to show how much you care. In winter the temperature can really take a dive at night, and that can be dangerous for those who don’t have homes or shelters to keep the cold at bay.

A beanie can go some small way to helping to keep someone warm and can be the first step they need to take towards a second chance. Extra warmth is always appreciated during the colder months and your generous promotional beanie can help someone who might otherwise have been freezing a little warner.

Polar Fleece Beanie


Polar Fleece Beanie - A classic, made from 100% polyester in 240gsm fabric, these toasty, ear warming beanies look great and can be embroidered with your brand!

Polar fleece is a warm, snuggly fabric that is meant to insulate and keep you warm when it’s cold out there! Our neat polar fleece beanie has a panelled design to better suit the shape of your head and have a brim panel as well to fit you snugly. They also come in six fresh colours!

Polar Fleece Beanie Colours

  • Royal Blue
  • Sky Blue
  • Turquoise
  • Bottle Green
  • Orange
  • Black


The Polar Fleece Beanies also have a matching range of scarves and gloves, also made out of polar fleece, so that you can have a full matching set for your uniform! The warm polyester fleece is anti-pill so that it won’t generate little balls of fluff on the fabric and looks stunning when embroidered with your brand.

Acrylic Beanie


Acrylic Beanie is the option for you if you prefer a woollier feel to your uniform, or just in general. Acrylic is a synthetic fibre that is woven to produce a synthetic wool. This recreates the benefits of wool, only being much more resistant to moths and other critters who like to snack on natural fibre garments. Acrylic has great colour fastness and is easy to dye vibrant colours. It also has a lot of flexibility and great water wicking or moisture management capabilities.


Branding is still an option with your acrylic beanie, as we can embroider that too. Acrylic also has a lot more flexibility to it because of the construction of the thread as well as the way that it is woven together. This means that an acrylic beanie has a little more leeway in terms of varying head shape and size than a polar fleece beanie would.

Our Acrylic Beanies come in 6 great colours, and we also have a selection of acrylic scarves so that you can have a matching set if that’s what tickles your fancy!


Acrylic Beanie Colours:

  • Navy Blue
  • Royal Blue
  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Natural

Branded Beanies


Branded Beanies have multiple uses and look as great as they make people feel – all warm and cosy inside! If you’re looking for a winter warmer to keep your company toasty this season, then you’ll find what you’re looking for with our Branded Beanies.

Order your awesome beanies now by emailing us or give us a call on 0861 111 954

A hip flask has many different applications, from the kind of flask that you can take with you when you’re camping so that you can have a store of water with you everywhere you go, to the kind that allows you to keep a nip of something in your pocket, which is nice for when it’s cold out. When you’re out for a walk in the wilderness, a hip flask can be a wonderful companion. Our metal hip flasks can be engraved with your brand, making them a stunning and elegant branded gift!

We have two very popular hip flask options:

Knife Gifts for Men



Engraved knives are always a winner! There’s something really great about receiving a set of beautifully arranged and sharpened knives. They have so many wonderful applications, from cooking in the kitchen for those men who appreciate the art of a well prepared meal, to slicing that perfect steak that’s just settled after it’s come off the braai and the meat is so tender that the knife cuts through like butter.
Knife sets are a wonderful promotional gift, a set of steak knives are a great way to help your favourite carnivore enjoy his favourite meal.

The gift of a hunting knife is also a great gift! A beautifully branded knife can be a fantastic present for men. A knife is an incredibly versatile tool and can be used for a great many things from slicing fruit to being invaluable in fixing something. Innovative use of tools was how mankind became top of the food chain and it’s what allows us to use a butterfly knife to undo a screw.

Whether it’s a whole set or a single knife, there are many benefits to giving a knife as a gift.


Braai Set Gifts for Men



Braai Gift Sets for Men – When the sun shines and the air is right, men across South Africa will look at the sky and nod. It’s time to braai! The braai is such an integral part of South African culture that it only makes sense to give braai kits as gifts! A set of awesome braai tools is an awesome way to give a man the chance to show off his skills at the grill. A braai is a way of bringing people together. It’s a time honoured South African traditional and we’ve gone so far as to call our Heritage Day on September 23rd Braai Day. Because in that mild September weather when the sun is shining and it’s a public holiday, what can we do but braai?

A beautiful braai kit is a great way to help that celebration along. We have a selection of braai kits that range from aluminium to wooden handled. They come beautifully packed and can be branded for you.


Grooming Set Gifts for Men



Grooming Set Gifts for Men are yet another fantastic way to show the men out there that you care about them by giving them the tools to take care of themselves and keep themselves looking at their best. A well-groomed man turns heads wherever he goes and it makes for a beautifully neat present.
Grooming kits is an umbrella term for anything that falls under personal care.  From manicure kits to shaving sets and bath time pamper kits, a grooming kit is a great way to help the man in your life take care of himself.

A grooming kit can be something small and easy to carry around in his pocket, so it makes a wonderful promotional branded item.


Tool Sets



Tool Sets make for fantastic gifts. If there’s nothing men like more it’s the chance to tinker with something. Whether it’s a puzzle or a car engine, there’s an element of tinkering in us all. So to enable that tinkering habit and that natural curiosity that brought us so swiftly to the top of the food chain and to the state of technological progress that we’re currently at – and ready to springboard from up onto the next level – we have tool sets. Tool sets make fantastic gifts. Not only are they super handy around the house but they’re super portable so even it’s a gift that’s given to someone who already has tools, it’s a nice way for him to be able to put them into his car and take them wherever he needs them without having to unpack the 500 kinds of spanners that he has stashed in a toolbox in the garage.

A tool set is a nifty, portable way to be able to take your tools wherever it is that you need them no matter where you are.


Multi Tool for Men



Multi Tools are exceptional gifts for men. It has the same benefits as a tool kit in being something that they can use for everyday tinkering, but with the added bonus of being pocket sized so that it really can be taken just about everywhere that doesn’t have airport security. A multi tool comes with a wide range of features from bottle openers and knives to nut crackers and pliers. This really is a tool for all occasions and is pretty much the Swiss Army of pocket tools, just on a slightly larger scale. A multi tool lets you go about your day safe in the knowledge that you have a tool in case you need it.
Multi tools also make for beautiful branded products and are great for promotions! Because a multi tool is small and so very useful, they’re very popular and make for great items for giveaways. When you’re looking for a great promotional item for men then look no further than the Multi Tool for Men.


Bottle Openers

A custom branded diary is a gorgeous gift, and a very useful one for anyone doing business.

So, what kinds of branding can we offer you? We have a selection of branding options for you to choose from so that you can get the best possible result and representation for your brand!
We have screen printing, which is a printing method that is done by pushing ink through a mesh screen stencil. This makes for a beautiful brand that works best in solid colours. It’s also very good for bold brands.

Another method we have is debossing. Debossing involves pressing a stamp of your brand into the material of the cover of your book and that creates a permanent impression in the fabric of the cover. This is the opposite of embossing, which creates a raised impression. On this kind of product, debossing is preferable as a more long lasting branding method. It also looks amazing and is capable of picking up fine details. It’s s stunning, subtle and elegant branding solution.

Something that incorporates the best of both worlds between screen printing and debossing is foiling. Foiling means that there is an impression created into the material of the cover, like with debossing, but there is a metallic foil in the impression, giving your beautiful brand the shimmer that it deserves. Foiling is traditionally done in gold or silver, and creates the same textured finish that debossing does but with the pop of colour that makes print screening so popular!


Executive Diaries




Executive Diaries make for wonderful presents, and looks really beautiful with foiling. We have a couple of options for executive diaries that extend from our beautiful slim diary to our high end notebooks.
The slim diary is a beautiful koskin book that as a weekly layout and is a stunning gift for the executive on the move, It’s part diary, part trave3l wallet so it makes the perfect present for people who are on the go.

These products are a great way to show how much you appreciate someone, and they have a truly impressive range of gifts that will have something for everyone!

Not only that but their stunning range of elegantly designed products come in a range of colours that range from serious to fun and playful, so there really is something for everyone in their beautiful selection of corporate merchandise.

Travel Sets

Travel Sets are a big focus of the Kooshty brand. They know that there’s adventure out there and that those in the know are always seeking and striving to get to the next big thing. This is why Kooshty has a selection of products that allow you to enjoy all the benefits of their exclusive products on the go.
Travel sets are the kind of products that can really make your trip that much easier. Whether you’re on the go and they allow you to enjoy your favourite up of coffee on the go, whether you’re far away from home or even if you’re just commuting between work and home.

Kooshty also has a travel set that will make your travel experience a dream, literally. Let’s take a look at the awesome products that Kooshty has that are going to make your life a whole lot more comfortable.
 

Kooshty Comfy Travel Set

  • Eye mask
  • Travel Pillow
  • Brand-able polyester bag

Travel Sets can be a really useful addition to your travelling arsenal. When you’re on the go, sleep doesn’t always come easily. The motion of travel as well as the unfamiliar setting can make falling asleep a little tricky, especially when you’re travelling between time zones and that jet lag is threatening.

Using a plane trip is a great way to adjust to a different time zone but at the same time, it can e difficult when the sun is poking its blinding rays through the windows. This is where Kooshty comes to your rescue with a beautiful travel set. The have a curved pillow that comes with one side made of soft, striped stretch (say that three times fast!) and the other made out of a plush velour in a colour that matches the stripes. This pillow is full of microbeads and is incredibly comfortable, providing your neck with the support that it needs when you’re resting in a strange position, and allowing you the comfort that you need to relax.

Which is awesome, being comfortable is a huge help when you’re travelling, but that doesn’t do much for that pesky sun and the blinds only do so much. If you’re travelling by car or bus, there aren’t always even blinds or curtains for you to use and draping a towel out the window doesn’t always work.  So now what?

The solution is also packed in the Kooshty comfy travel set. An eye mask is a great travel companion. When you’re travelling the light can sometimes make it difficult to sleep, and so can the strange environment. An eye mask is a great way to help with that because when you’re in total darkness then your brain begins to produce the sleep chemical, melatonin. Do this is a sneaky yet really useful way to trick your brain into thinking that it’s naptime.

This beautiful set makes a fantastic gift for anyone who travels a lot, and could even a beautiful corporate gift for an airline or travel agents. Jet lag is seen as one of the few downsides to travelling long distance, and this amazing brand has given us some awesome tools to cope with it in the form of this stunning Corporate Travel Set.

Kooshty Coffee Set with Plunger

  • Kooshty Kup with silicone grip (One or two)

These stunning products make for the most amazing coffee moments. The containers are made of durable borosilicate glass that is more resistant to heat than standard glass would be.

And the Kooshty Kups that come with these sets have a unique design at the bottom of the glass that channels any additives that suit your taste to the centre of the glass and help them dissolve so that you get the best cup of coffee possible, blended to your own tastes and through science.

What Does In Ratio Mean When Ordering Corporate Clothing
June 12, 2017
What Does In Ratio Mean When Ordering Corporate Clothing? – A Very valid question. When you’re ordering products for a corporate event or if you’re ordering clothing for promotional purposes, you may be wondering what sizes to get.

Ration means in proportion. So that you will always have a balance of shirts that will have a quantity of sizes that will be in proportion to your other sizes. And these sizes are all calculated on which of our sizes are the most requested. This means that you have all our knowledge poured into this quick and easy formula to make your t shirt ordering process that much more simple.

A Formula to order the most popular t shirt sizes


Our standard ratio for t shirts is Sizes: S-XXL(2;4;4;2;1) 

  • Small: 2
  • Medium: 4
  • Large: 4
  • XL: 2
  • 2XL: 1

That means that in an order of 100 t shirts then the number of shirts that you should be buying in each size would be as follows:

  • Small: 15
  • Medium: 30
  • Large: 30
  • XL: 15
  • 2XL: 10


What size should you order the most of? When you take it down to the smallest number, then this is the ratio that you should be buying.

People do come in different shapes after all and you can’t always ask everyone what size they are beforehand. Especially for promotional products, you don’t always know ahead of time who is going to be there.

So this is a pretty tricky question, and one that either requires a lot of guess work or some pretty intense math – something that not all of us look forward to! The sad truth is that buying the wrong size of t shirt, especially for a one off event, can’t cost you a lot of money. And we don’t want you to spend your money on unnecessary things.

Here at Brand Innovation, we want you to have the best possible products, we want to save you time and money and we want you to have the most rocking event possible! Whether you’re giving them away at an event or selling them, a t shirt is a joy to have and we’re here to spread a little joy.

Which is why we’ve done all that math for you! 

So, what’s the formula? How to we work it out?

We take our data, and we boil it down into its simplest form. For each small shirt, how many large shirts are ordered? Like that. And we put that into its simplest form so that it can be applied to any order.

So,
Small
Medium
Large
XL
2XL


That gives you an even distribution of sizes that will give you the most popular sizes in the highest quantity. You’ll find that in t shirts, larger sizes are usual the more popular ones, so mediums and larges are often a good bet.

This is usually because a t shirt is often worn as a loos, comfortable garment, so people often get a size up from what they would usually take for comfort value. This is also, as an interesting aside, because human beings have been getting bigger over the last century, not just in terms of body mass but also in height. The increase of nutrients in food over the last century has resulted in taller people – and bigger t shirts.

Hopefully that formula has helped you figure out what Ratio To Use When Ordering Corporate Clothing!

So when you next need to order 10 0000 shirts from Brand Innovation, you will know exactly what in ratio or out of ratio means.
We are here to help.

A House Shaped Memo Holder is a fantastic thing to have when you’re house hunting. It keeps your eyes on the prize, and makes it way easier to mark down the listings that you’re interested in and take down the details that you need to know about your new home – how much it is, all those little questions that you have for the estate agent.

Giving this neato little gift to your clients makes it much easier for them to record all the details that they need when they are looking for their new home and is  really useful just on its own. An item like this should have pride of place on the desk in the new home that you’re going to help them find.


House Shape Money Box 56236



House Shaped Money Boxes are a great little way to save extra house hold change. Buying a house can be a financially trying time and every little coin helps. Keeping your change in a jar can add up quickly, and can be a great way to keep your savings in one spot while reminding you of how great things will be once you’re in a new place. It’s also a fun little token of appreciation to your clients for the time and effort that they have put in for house hunting with you! This gift is very sweet, and a thoughtful, playful promotional item.

Lanyards


Lanyards are a great way to make sure that you don’t lose your keys. A lanyard is also a beautiful way to get your brand out there. Lanyards have wonderful branding areas and are super great gifts for expos and for events where you’re going to have a high volume of people like an open house. A lanyard is a brilliant, cost effective branding solution that makes it a wonderful, high volume gift.

Diaries


Diaries are also super branded gifts for Real Estate companies. This can be a fantastic way to note down the dates of any open houses or appointments that you have to go to. Buying a house can be a time consuming process and it makes it just a little easier when you have everything written down. The process needn’t be unnecessarily stressful, so a diary is a great way of making a little calm in chaos and can help the process from viewing to buying to moving run more smoothly.

Mugs


Mugs are a great gift no matter the occasion and it can be a wonderful thing to sit there in your new home on the first morning, drinking your first cup of coffee there with a mug that you were given by the Real Estate Company you were working with. Because it’s thanks to them that you’re there to begin with. Also, you still have to unpack most of the kitchen, but this mug is definitely fast becoming one of your favourites.

Business card holders


Business Card Holders are fantastic real estate gifts because the chances are that every real estate agent that you deal with, from every single company, has their own card. So if you really want your agent to stand out, then you can give your client the card holder to keep them all sorted. It also means that your brand is going to be at the forefront of their minds whenever they flip through to find the right card – yours, obviously.

Fridge magnets


Fridge magnets make for fun promotional items. They can have varied branding areas and you can do a lot with them. Also, if they’re on the fridge, then they are one of the things that you see most often when around the house. The kitchen takes up a fair amount of time with food preparation, that’s why it’s such a common place to put up the notices.

Calendars


Calendars are also a great way to remind your clients when your open houses are going to be, and a great way to keep your details right where they can see them so that when they’re ready to buy or sell, they are right there with you, ready and waiting for them to give you a buzz!


Hopefully these can help give you some ideas to get a great Real Estate Promotional Product!

Tracksuits South Africa
May 30, 2017
Tracksuits South Africa – Tracksuits are iconic clothing items. So iconic, in fact, that they have their own day. November 6th is International tracksuit day, a day for those of us who have fond memories of velour Juicy Couture. The tracksuit is an integral part of sportswear’s integration into modern fashion and when it comes down to it, we have tracksuits to thank for yoga pants and leggings being worn regularly. Here’s to having a full, comfortable range of motion!

Tracksuits are fun and comfortable clothing that allow you to move around freely while you’re doing exercise.

The 1960s marked the official birth of the tracksuit into modern culture. Those three, distinctive stripes on a suit and jacket set made of all the new fangled textile technology that the era had to offer was the first apparel that Adidas produced. It even had neat little stirrups on the pants. This first Adidas tracksuit was produced in collaboration with the dreamboat of German football, Franz Beckenbauer.
The swinging 70s was a great era for the tracksuit and they bloomed when they were given a new lease on life as jogging and hiking became popular pastimes. And new innovations in fabric meant that tracksuits were not only becoming much more comfortable, but also better looking and more appropriate to wear recreationally.

During the 1980s even newer fabric innovations made tracksuits much more comfortable to wear while you were actually exercising and the rise in serious exercise made the tracksuit more of a staple clothing item than it had previously been.

The 90s as well saw a rise in tracksuits being used in the limelight of the sporting world. The Olympic team tracksuits were very popular and people wanted to emulate their favourite sports stars by wearing their uniforms off the track. The fact that a tracksuit is a loose, comfortable garment just adds to the off-field appeal.

The new millennium ushered in a veritable tsunami of tracksuit popularity with tabloid magazines full of glassy photos of celebrities living their lives in beautiful velour tracksuits. Britney Spears even had a whole range of custom tracksuits made up for her wedding party.

Tracksuits were everywhere, from print media to television, with Tony Soprano sporting a track suit that made the track suit the new Armani of organised crime.

Modern tracksuits seem to be a true blend of all that came before them. Sporting sleek minimalist designs that echo back to the 60s and 70s all created from those fabrics that were minted in the 80s and 90s, making the tracksuit of the 2010s a collaboration of the decades.

Of course it also because of the tracksuit that we find it much more socially acceptable to wear sports oriented gear out and about in public. Exercise isn’t stigmatised as something gross and shameful that should be done in private. These days we have borrowed the shamelessness pioneered by the Romans and their public gymnasiums. Though with a little less nudity. We are unashamed to exercise and show off our interest in sports in public.

This makes a tracksuit a wonderful corporate item. Tracksuits are designed to match so they make for great sports uniforms - particularly goof for personal trainers and gym staff – for teams.

Mens Tracksuits


Mens Tracksuits  - we stock a selection of tracksuits for men. Men’s garments are cut wider in the shoulder shoulder and tend not to taper in the leg. We have a beautiful uniform tracksuit option for men that’s made out of 210gsm polyester tricot and comes in three wonderful colours. Black and white, blue and white and red and white. This classic tracksuit option comes with a colour contrast zip and side pockets on both the pants and the shirt.

We have a selection of full mens tracksuits as well as tracksuit tops and bottoms that are sold separately so that you can have either, or both, whichever you prefer.


Ladies Tracksuits


Ladies tracksuits – we have a lovely selection of ladies tracksuits that would be wonderful for a sports team or for a sporty uniform. A tracksuit can make a fantastic uniform if you have a work environment where it is appropriate, such as a sporting goods warehouse, or in a factory where you are required to do physical labour.
Tracksuits are designed with physical labour in mind and therefore all9ow for a great range of motion while keeping your body temperature regulated. So when you’ve got a lot of hustle to do, a tracksuit is your best friend.


Team Tracksuits


Team tracksuits are a great thing to have. Weather isn’t always the way we want it to be and if you’re playing a sport with a shorter uniform – ladies hockey, lacrosse or soccer and you want to keep warm before or after the game then tracksuit is a great way to do that. Tracksuits are also called warmup suits and can help you keep cosy while you actually warm up. Then once you are warm it’s time to get down to your actual uniform and really work up a sweat!

We have a great selection of unisex tracksuits that are great for teams. These team uniforms often have sporty colourful accents. A popular unisex option is the US Basic Spartan Unisex Tracksuit.


School Tracksuits


School tracksuits are often a part of the uniform for gym or extracurricular sport. They are sometimes optional, with the shorter summer uniform being the compulsory option, but a tracksuit is a great investment for a really active student who wants to be comfortable and keep their game on no matter what weather it is.


Full Tracksuit


Full tracksuits are just a click away at brand innovation. We have ladies, mens and unisex full tracksuits for you to choose from, all ready and waiting for your branding.

Tracksuit bottoms / Tracksuit tops


Tracksuit bottoms and tops - You know what you want. And you want one thing but not the other? We have a great selection of unisex tracksuits that you can mix and match to make your perfect custom tracksuit. We also have individual gendered items so that you can get your perfect ladies cut tracksuit, no problem.

Branded tracksuit

Branded tracksuits are a way to advertise your brand. Many brands who supply sports gear to teams will add their logo to the team logo or have a selection of other sponsors on the uniform. A branded tracksuit gets your name out there while also letting the world know that you support your team.

Benefits of Fidget Spinners

Benefits of Fidget Spinners are widely contested but they are often advertised and sold as relaxation toys.
The motion of a fidget spinner is incredibly relaxing and the motion of it is said to help sooth anxiety, depression and attention deficit disorders like ADHD. They do this by providing mild simulation for the brain to focus on so that the user can focus their concentration on something without the constant need for extra external stimulus. This can help to quell nervous habits like foot tapping, nail biting and finger tapping. Stress can be a difficult thing to deal with in an office environment but this kind of device can provide just enough soothing stimuli to keep you calm and focused to get you through the day.
These same benefits have been described as being great for children and adults who have ADHD, anxiety and Autism.

Often these kinds of disorders can be made a little more manageable by having a comfort object or some method to keep them occupied. Many children have reported that it helps to keep their attention focused at school or calm their stress levels when they are facing something unpleasant. One girl cited going to the dentist as a specific occasion that the fidget spinner helped her through.

Fidget Spinner Controversy



As with any super popular gadget, there is a lot of controversy surrounding them. One of the main points being raised is that the fidget spinner has never actually been proven to help people cope with Autism and ADHD. They may help, and many individual reports claim that the toys are extremely beneficial, however experts in their fields are reluctant to recommend them as actual coping mechanisms.
The devices are being banned in classrooms all across the United States, cited as being distracting to students. Some parents protest this, saying that their children are reporting better attention spans in class when they use the spinners and saying that the children who use them as toys are the ones distracting the rest of their classmates.

It is difficult to tell who is who though, when fidget spinners don’t come with any kind of doctor’s recommendation.


Origins of the Fidget Spinner



The origins of the fidget spinner are murky at best, there seem to have been several people who have created different versions throughout the years, several of whom have filed for patents.
The earliest model seems to have been created by Catherine Hettinger, a chemical engineer who applied for a patent over twenty years ago in 1993. The patent lapsed in 2005, but not before it gained some traction at the invention fairs that she took it to in Florida.

Hettinger herself admits that there’s not a lot of similarity between her original design and the Spinners on the market today. Her original gadget was designed of soft plastic with a button in the centre to entertain her daughter who suffered from an autoimmune disorder that caused muscle weakness. Because this limited the amount of play she and her daughter could share she began making a peaceful toy that wouldn’t put too much strain on her while stimulating her. Thus was one of the original fidget spinners born. While Hettinger admits that there is no direct link between her own spinner and the modern take on it, she is happy to claim Wikipedia status as one of the potential inventors.

Another possible inventor is Scott McCoskery, who threw together a ball bearing device to keep himself from fidgeting too much in meetings. He’s partnered up with an associate and applied for a provisional patent in 2016.

The patent status of the Spinners that are on the market at the moment is unclear, as no one seems to be able to pin point their exact moment or origin of conception. This has led to many thrifty and innovative individuals making their own custom fidget spinners.

Fidget Spinners as Mental Health Aids

One important thing that these gadgets are doing regardless of their patent status or whether or not they are recommended by a doctor, is that they are bringing children’s mental health to the conversational forefront without dismissing it. It’s being brought up as a possible solution and getting people talking about way to help children handle mental illnesses like anxiety and depression rather than dismissing the possibilities of a child having illnesses like this. These days we are able to catch the mental health symptoms earlier and earlier, which does make it look like more children are developing mental illnesses at younger ages. But it may very well be that this has always been the case and we as adults are only now developing the tools to understand and treat this

With the advances in medical science racing ahead every day, we are discovering more diseases earlier, and achieving a higher understanding of them. We are learning how to identify autism earlier on, and how to better diagnose it in women, because up until recently mental health professionals considered autism to be relatively uncommon in women. This is not actually the case, it’s simply a case of women exhibiting different autistic behaviours which up until recently went unstudied. Mental health is something that has come under the microscope very recently in human history. We have many things still to understand but we’ve come a long way and things are improving every day.

Modern theories speculate that early folk lore such as ‘changelings’ may have been caused by children displaying autistic markers and being grossly misunderstood by their communities. As little as fifty years ago mental illnesses like BPD and Schizotypal Personality Disorders, even something as common as post-partum depression, could have earned a one way ticket to the sanatorium. These days mental illnesses are much better understood and very often treatable through a variety of methods, who says that in a dew years the Fidget Spinner might not be one of them?

Fidget spinners are really in great they are opening up an avenue for people to have conversations about children’s mental health with a solution in mind.
