2018: The Latest Tech Concepts
Our brand new tech range is out! Don’t forget to contact your Account Manager for our full catalogue…
There was a time when tech products were low in variety and quality and high in cost. The last few years however have seen promotional technology become one of the most competitive, sexy, functional forms of promotional merchandise and corporate gifts.
Offering a range of product types, including branded power banks and Bluetooth speakers, tech has become a product category that can adapt to match any budget limit or specific requirement.
2018 is set to see tech evolve even further, to mark the release of our brand-new range, we’ve picked some of our favourite product trends:
1. Wireless Charging
How many of your clients, their children, their children’s children and even their children’s children’s children have received an iPhone 8 or even an iPhone X for Christmas? Now could be a great opportunity to give them a breakthrough branded product that ties in directly with a central part of their life, their phone.
While the idea of wireless charging has been in the works for the past couple of years, companies like Zens have charged to the forefront and released sleek, unobtrusive charge pads that enable you to quite literally put your phone down to charge, pick up and go.
We’ve added these incredible products to our range of tech this year, which means not only can you purchase wireless chargers for your clients but you can add your logo directly onto the pad. What’s more, the Iphone 8 is the very first phone that has built-in wireless charging, so you can show off your brand while also showing your market awareness and on-trend tech expertise.
Until Wireless takes off, there’s a 100% chance that you are going to be holding onto to that charger cable. It’s an essential accessory to your smart-phone experience and the experience of every other smart phone user world wide. Why not make it stand out from the crowd?
With our Bespokable Cable…or just the Bespocable as we’ve come to affectionately call it, you can create completely customisable 3-in-1 USB cables in full colour print, personalisable with your own logo to the USB head. These funky charging options will work with just about any smartphone or tablet you can imagine.
We’ll admit, a cable on its own works great as a promotional giveaway item, but may not impress too much as a corporate gift. We recommend combining your custom cable with a branded powerbank from our range.
3. Full Colour Sounds
Bluetooth speakers have long been a mainstay of branded merchandise, over the past decade they’ve grown to offer a range of size, shapes and household brands that put them well into the premium product category.
2018 is a year for speakers to become more customisable than ever with the Gillie Speaker. Offering powerful sound, high durability and long battery life, the super soft Gillie Speaker is a breakthrough for the branding industry in terms of the options available when it comes to personalisation.
The Gillie is the first speaker on the market to offer full colour print with virtually no limitations. Want something more than just your logo on your speaker? no problem. Utilising the latest print techniques, you could print Salvador Dali’s Metamorphosis of Narcissus to the front of your speaker if you wanted to…though we’re not sure why you would.
4. Long Distance Relationships
For a while back in 2016 the world developed a brief obsession with an item known as the ‘Selfie Stick’. While the product itself was relatively short lived, it’s legacy has lived on and the internet community have been trying to take selfies from further and further away, utilising some rather creative means.
Well we think we have you all beat, with our super slick ‘Selfie Ring’. The Selfie Ring connects via Bluetooth to your phone, and slips comfortably onto your finger, enabling you to set your phone up and take a picture from up to 10 metres away.
