Corporate Uniforms South Africa
October 29, 2018

Corporate uniforms aren’t just a great tool for brand awareness and promoting your brand, they have a ton of other benefits too. They affect how your company image is perceived by its customers and clients, and can have an impact on the psychology and productivity of workers.


It’s no longer the case that everyone dons a suit and tie to go to work. Whatever the corporate dress code is for your workplace, Brand Innovation has appropriate business attire and corporate uniforms! Because what we wear to work matters. Here’s why:


Brand exposure: Corporate Uniforms are a really great way of increasing your company’s brand exposure. Branded clothing functions to increase the visibility of your brand, because your logo goes wherever the wearer does.


In the workplace, while commuting, or at networking and promotional events, the corporate uniform functions like any company swag. Especially for companies with different branches, a consistent corporate uniform ensures that customers engage with your brand at every point of interaction.


Consistent corporate attire: A uniform ensures that your team are consistently professionally presented. This is important, as business attire affects your image as a company. Professional presentation sens the right impression to your customers, and clients. Corporate uniforms don’t necessarily have to be a full outfit. A branded golf shirt, for example is an excellent uniform item - comfortable, while still professional.


Team building: a uniform is a very visual symbol of unity in the workplace. It equalises employees and can promote a sense of camaraderie amongst workers. The feeling of being in a team is an important component of loyalty and company pride.


Corporate Attire


Appropriate corporate attire is not as rigid as it used to be - different levels of formality are fitting for different industries and workplace cultures. An increasingly popular choice for branded corporate attire is golf shirts. These are perfect for the professional world, as they are lightweight, comfortable and understatedly sophisticated. Because they have minimal designs and are available in so many colours and weights they’re very customisable to your brand identity. We supply over 150 different styles of golf shirts!


Another popular option for the modern workplace is the lounge shirt. This is a great style of office wear, and their stylish simplicity make them an excellent corporate uniform item. Available in short sleeve, ¾ sleeve and long sleeve styles, they allow your uniform to look consistent regardless of the season.

Unique Promotional Products
October 29, 2018

Unique promotional products - living in the age of information, your customers are inundated with media and marketing on a constant basis. In this increasingly competitive world, it’s important to make your customers sit up and pay attention to your brand. Unique promotional products are an amazing way to give your brand that essential edge to distinguish you from your competition!


The classics of promotional items definitely have their place. They still play a vital role in your marketing campaigns to increase brand awareness. But exclusively doing what everyone else in the industry is doing won’t help your brand stand out. Our selection of unique promotional products offers you the novel and innovative products to get your customers talking around the water cooler. We have some ideas of how you can go about choosing a creative promotional item that is totally unique.


Unique Company Swag


Unique company swag - a great route can be choosing items that have a fresh approach to traditional swag products. We offer branded pens that double up as memory sticks - adding a tech savvy flair to a popular product choice. A colour changing mug or chalk mug is a novel twist on the classic corporate mug. Our USBs shaped like a credit card are a convenient, fun alternative to a standard memory memory stick. Creative promotional ideas like these build on the universal utility of classic gifts in an original way.


Creative promotional products solve problems or a fill a lack in our lives in a new and original way. They’re items that still add value to our lives, through their functionality. We hold onto them even beyond our initial delight, because they make our lives more convenient. So creative promo products offer a long term branding solution.


The most powerful promotional products don’t just delight the receiver. They get them chatting to their friends about your gifts. They get posted over social media. Word-of-mouth is a marketing mechanism that should never be underestimated, and a unique company swag is a fantastic way to prompt it.


Unique Promotional Items


Unique promotional items - getting creative with your promotional products, isn’t just about shining the spotlight on your brand. It also sends an important message to your customers about who you are. It’s a reflection that your business is innovative and current. That you’re not focused on trying to keep up with trends, but rather that you’re the trailblazers of the industry.


Promotional products already have leverage over other marketing forms. Most of the marketing we see is through a screen. It's abstract and virtual - a blip on our newsfeeds. Promotional products are an incredibly powerful marketing tool because they buck that trend. They’re a tangible item that we get to physically interact with. Few other forms of marketing prompt such a level of engagement.


Creative Promotional Ideas


Creative promotional ideas - a great way to choose creative promotional ideas, is to respond to the trends or current environment of your customers. For example, we’re recently becoming more conscious about the harmful effects of disposable plastic on the environment. A branded reusable straw is an amazing gift that confronts this contemporary issue.

What Makes Spekboom So Special?
October 29, 2018

This unassuming succulent that litters our backyards and the Eastern Cape landscapes is much more than the humble plant it appears to be. It’s actually a fire-resistant, global warming-fighting, water-wise, oxygen-producing miracle plant! Indigenous to South Africa and super resilient, the spekboom is the green superhero combating greenhouse gasses and climate change.  And on top of all this, it’s a low maintenance plant that thrives in everything from droughts to floods.


Sounding too good to be true? It’s not! Let’s take a closer look at what makes spekboom such an exceptional plant.


1. Climate change fighter


While of course all plants are good for the environment - spekboom is on another level! For one thing, it will purify the air around you and survive on the most minimal of water. So it’s the perfect low impact plant for a water stressed South Africa.


But the most important quality of spekboom is the contribution it makes to fighting climate change. It takes in way more than its fair share of carbon from the atmosphere, the problematic greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. This process of removing carbon from the atmosphere is called carbon sequestering, a function that spekboom does crazy efficiently. One hectare of spekboom, can sequester between 4 and 10 tonnes of carbon in a year! This is 10 times more carbon sequestered that the Amazon rainforest! This has uniquely huge potential for combating climate change.


And this need is more urgent than ever! In October 2018 the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a groundbreaking report saying we need to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050 to prevent irreversible damage to the environment. So spekboom contributes to combatting a much larger global issue - all from our backyards! A spekboom is an eco friendly gift like no other, with real potential to contribute to a more sustainable future.


2. Resilient and adaptable


Like many succulents, spekboom is a badass resilient plant that can survive almost any conditions in South Africa. It’s fire resistant so can serve as a firebreak, and requires little water, making it a super low maintenance plant. It can thrive in poor quality soils and survive droughts, fires and floods alike. So even for those of us that are neglectful gardeners, spekboom can survive when we forget to water them here and there!


3. Easy to maintain


Unfortunately not all of us were blessed with a green thumb. But spekboom is one of those incredibly easy to maintain plants, for even the most hopeless of gardeners. It’s easy to plant, simple to propagate and needs minimal watering.


4. It’s totally edible


It’s true! Not only does a spekboom gift mean giving someone a beautiful plant, it’s also providing them with some tasty graze. It’s slightly lemony and tart in flavour, making it a favourable addition to salads, garnishes and soups. A favourite ingredient for many chefs, spekboom is also packed with nutrition and vitamins.


5. A versatile gift


Spekboom can make its way into the home in a variety of forms. It’s a charming indoor plant, and is a popular bonsai choice. Because it's so easy to propagate, one spekboom gift can result in a whole garden of the plant! They can grow up to 5 meters in height, meaning it can make a great hedge, ground cover or a garden shrub. Spekboom is ideal for coastal regions, but it can survive pretty much anywhere besides heavy frost areas. So no matter the season or climate, this is a well suited gift!


6. Survives for centuries


Spekboom is an incredibly resilient plant, and is able to live for more than 200 years! This is a long term gift that keeps on giving - for centuries! We will in fact be survived by our spekboom, which will continue to make a positive contribution to the environment long after us. This is an eco friendly gift that has a really long term and powerful impact.

Brand Innovation is proud to supply spekboom, as well as other corporate plants and eco friendly gifts. Please contact us on 0861 111 954 or email us and an account executive will be more than happy to help you!

Useful Corporate Gifts South Africa
October 12, 2018

Useful corporate gifts - usefulness is the number one criteria for a powerful corporate gift. Unfortunately a promotional item can’t do any marketing work from the bin! The most effective promotional products are those that a customer chooses to hold onto for a long period of time - so your marketing campaign has long term effects.


We know that people are more likely to hold onto promotional gifts if they’re


1. Useful

2. Trendy

3. Fun


Useful corporate gifts fill a lack or fix a problem a customer might not even have considered they had! The more a gift adds value to your customers, the more it becomes integrated into their daily lives. This makes your brand familiar and increases your brand exposure. Familiarity increases the recall of your branding, and makes contacting you super accessible - this is how you prompt a customer down a path of purchase from your company!


Consider how if your branded shirt is worn your logo is exposed to everyone the wearer comes into contact with. If your branded mugs are used in the office of your customer your logo is exposed to anyone who comes into that space. If you scale up the number of days that product is used for and give out multiples of your promotional items, the effectiveness of useful corporate gifts compounds exponentially. Paying attention to the use-factor of a promotional product is the best way to get bang for your buck.


Useful corporate gift ideas


Fortunately, useful corporate gift ideas are plentiful! Brand Innovation is in the business of supplying innovative, useful items that add value to customers’ lives. Some amazing corporate gifts are just everyday items that you can’t have too many of - but with an innovative twist to make you stand out from the competition:

Colour changing coffee mugs - coated in a black heat sensitive layer, these mugs reveal the logo beneath when hot water is poured into them!


Chalk coffee mugs - this quirky product lets you drink your coffee, draw doodles and leave little messages all on the same item.


Travel coffee mugs - this item makes sure you never miss your morning coffee! Travel mugs let you have your hot beverages on the move. They’re also a great reusable alternative to disposable coffee mugs, making them a wonderful eco-friendly gift.



Branded pens are the most effective promotional product. They’re extremely cost effective, with high impact potential. It goes without saying that they’re used by everyone, no matter their job, every day. Branded pens are universal in their usefulness, and you can’t have too many! Our writing instruments page has our full range. If you want to outshine the competition our unique branded pens will help you stand out. These include:
