Going for Gold: Ranking Our Top Promotional Products

Whether it’s figure skating or ski jumping, the Winter Games have something for everyone. And since they’ve got us in the competitive spirit, we’re hosting a competition of our own. Our top promotional products have gathered to compete in their respective categories. Who will come out top in the drinkware giveaway? Which tote bag will be crowned the best of the best? While all these top performers are considered a favourite, there can only be one who takes home the giveaway gold. Check out who’s climbing to the top of the podium for each category of promotional products. Let the games begin!   

Promotional Pens: Curl Your Logo Around this Giveaway Gold   

Did you know? Curling, or ‘chess on ice’, is known as the ‘bookish sport’ of the Winter Games. Curling originated in 16th century Europe and involves players sliding stones on a sheet of ice toward a target area. Is curling the unsung hero, the workhorse, of sports? Perhaps. And what better metaphor for our first category of competitors — the most bookish of branded gifts itself — the personalised pen! Our podium-worthy favourites follow:  

Gold: Metal Alpha Soft Touch Pen with Stylus & Rose Gold Trim: Nothing beats this ballpoint pen with its metal barrel, soft touch finish and unforgettable plunger design. A stylus top, rose gold trim and your lasered logo on the barrel mean pure gold for your brand — rose gold, that is.  

Silver: Metal Alpha Soft Touch Pen With Stylus: Celebrate the silver trim on this silver-medal-winning stylus pen (remember: number two tries harder!). Silver rings at the grip complement your logo, laser-engraved in silver for years and years of branding visibility.   

Bronze: Metal Bright Soft Touch Diamond Stylus Pen: So bright, so right for your brand!  Note the elongated silver nosecone and the diamond-patterned grip, delivering an elegant look and hours and hours of writing comfort. Trimmed in silver and sporting your logo laser-engraved on the soft touch barrel, this stylus pen’s destined for the podium.  

Branded Tote Bags: Your Logo’s Catching Eyes Like a Gold Medal in the Sun  

The fact is, if you’re figure skating you can’t afford to have a single thing in your hands. No time to hold an extra jumper or a pair of trainers. Wouldn’t be practical to attempt a triple Salchow with a three-ring binder or textbook in hand. Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome to the floor: the mighty branded tote bag! Part of every great promotional plan, the ‘advertise everywhere’ tote is ready to win big! Great for sports, work, travel and running errands, these top-notch totes are designed to get your customers hands-free — and your brand everywhere! Ice skaters may not need one during routines, but certainly before and after, as the ubiquitous tote plays a starring role in everyone’s daily routine.  

Gold: Wave-Patterned Large Shopping Tote Bag: The water may be frozen (how else can one play ice hockey, after all?) but you’re still going to make a gold-worthy splash with this wave-patterned tote. Choose blue or red and customise in white for a patriotic giveaway.   

Silver: Budget Shopper Tote: The low price and bright colours make this shopper tote a hard-working giveaway and a branding dream. Use this bag for sports equipment, extra layers and year-round fun.  

Bronze:  Morris Thank You Tote Bag: Say thanks to your customers from the winner’s circle with this contemporary two-toned bag. Featuring reinforced handles and a stylish front pocket, this bag is bringing home a medal! 

Drinkware: Warm Up the Judges with a Nice Hot Beverage  

The weather at the Winter Games is seriously chilly this year, perhaps the coldest in 20 years. This makes for judges with trembling hands — problematic in the event of an errant digit being entered, say, a ‘10’ where only a ‘1’ was intended — and thus permanently altering the trajectory of the games. That simply will not do, and we have the solution — for the Winter Games, the competitors and your customers as well: promotional drinkware! For a giveaway that will always make the podium go for a tumbler or mug every time. Remind your customers of your brand as they enjoy piping hot drinks on the go.  

Gold:  400 ml Oregon Water Bottle with Carabiner: Shiny as a medal and easy to carry, this trendy carabiner bottle attaches to your backpack for hikes, running and more! This bottle is classy, convenient and the perfect sporty bottle for brands that bring home the gold. 

Silver:  Elwood Insulating Tumbler: Insulated, spill-resistant and trimmed with bright colours, this travel tumbler will keep your brand relevant and your drinks fresh! It may be stainless steel, but this tumbler shines like silver.

Bronze:  325 ml. Full Colour Ceramic Mug: Everyone is a winner when they go home with this dazzling full colour ceramic mug. You can be sure those colours won’t be fading anytime soon with our dye sublimation method that keeps your imprint bright.
