We went with a mission to find as much cool new apparel + merch as possible. We started our days early and didn’t stop, even to eat until the day was done. When Drew says no lunch, he means it! We’ve been through all the photos, checked out all the samples, and had alllll the discussions. We are ready to share our favorites in branded merch with you.

If you know us, you know it was REAL hard to narrow it down to just three each. We have many favorites to share with you this year. Keep an eye out for more to come.

  1. Pop Slide: The functionality of a pop socket without the full commitment. It’s perfect for those who love the idea of a pop socket but don’t want to commit to sticking it ‘permanently’ to their phone. Slide Stretch clips to the sides of most phone cases and is easy to position where you want it. Slide it down for FaceTime in portrait view or for MagSafe charging. Slide it to the center for use as a stand when watching your favorite show. Slide it just about anywhere else to find the best ‘fit’ for your hand, for easy texting and swiping. Or slide it off for wireless charging with any standard Qi wireless charger.
  1. The Transformer: Backpack & Foldaway Tote Bag: The versatile Transformer bag combines the comfort of a backpack with the convenience of a foldaway tote bag that folds up into a compact pouch. Large imprint area for prominent branding opportunity. The sturdy 210D rip-stop polyester features wide, comfortable straps with reinforced stitching, so it’s ideal for shopping, walking, and outdoor adventures.  The attached dual-function pouch can hold your keys or wallet, and then that the bag folds into it.
    Bonus: No Set up Charge and Free Shipping to the 48 contiguous states and Canada.
  2. Custom Shoes:  Stand out in a crowd at a tradeshow floor when your team has completely custom branded shoes! They’ll make an even bigger impact if you use a bright bold brand color! Brighten up any promotion with lights, custom illumination with 7 lit color settings and various color changing speeds.  Virtual Designs are free – let’s talk!









  1. Acacia Cheese Boards: Location, Location, Location – one question we always ask is where do you want the item to end up? Kitchens are in the top 3 spots where branded merch sticks! These pieces blend gorgeous Acacia hardwood and an eco-friendly epoxy to create a one-of-a-kind piece of serveware for your home. Nine color choices to choose from.
  1. Swedish Dishcloth:  Here I go with the kitchen again but I love Swedish dishcloths. One Swedish dishcloth replaces 17 rolls of paper towels and can absorb 20x their weight. They’re far more hygienic than a sponge, and air dry quickly so it doesn’t breed bacteria or smells. Plus they’re cute! Use a fun design or pattern in your corporate colors and work your logo as a complement to the overall design.
  2. Chi-Charge Stack: Trending in Tech! Charging multiple devices at once while on the go just got easier. The Chi-Charge Stack is a brand-new compact device that can wirelessly charge a compatible phone, watch, and earbud case all at the same time. It is a powerful device that makes a powerful statement.

We’re rested and ready to work together to meet your 2023 goals. Contact us to set up a meeting today.
