Here’s how it works:

  • You give your client a personalized umbrella that comes with a RainAlertz tag
  • Your client visits the appropriate store to download the app
  • The first time your client visits the app, they will be prompted to enter the program code located on the RainAlertz tag.
  • The code determines which graphics will appear on the app.  Your company graphics will appear since the app is white labelled with your branding.
  • When there is a chance of rain, your client will be notified by an alert on their smart phone.
  • Additionally, the main application screen has a custom branded 5-day forecast based on the client’s location.

What a unique & useful way to generate brand awareness for your business.  Say hello to your customers every time it looks like rain outside.

Financial institutions & insurance companies could benefit by tying in a custom message such as “XYZ Insurance has you covered.  There’s a chance of rain so don’t forget to take your umbrella today”.  Plus there are so many other ways that marketers can get creative with the messaging.

The RainAlertz app works on smart phones with Android, iOS and Windows platforms.

Mugs are tried and true promotional products. They are always an appreciated gift and usually make it into our personal or work cupboards where they are subsequently used on a regular basis.

These deep etched mugs take the idea of custom branded mugs to a whole new level. Rather than the traditional screen print or pad print, deep etched mugs give the logo a puffy…sort of hand crafted / artisan look.

Sand blasting/sand carving give edges a more defined, polished look.

If you like the look of deep etching but your logo has a more polished, defined look, then sand blasting would be a better option. You can still add color fill to sand blasted logos, it just won’t have the same puffy, handcrafted look that the deep etching provides.

It’s, compact, lightweight, has a carabiner clip (for clipping onto belt loops, purses or key chains) and gives the ability to lock a measurement in place unlike a ruler.

At a cost of just $1.60 – $2.25, which includes a custom full color dome imprint, this compact carabiner tape measure is a very useful trade show or convention giveaway that will stay with your clients and prospects for many years to come.  What a terrific branding opportunity for such a low cost. There are five translucent colors to choose from including Blue, Red, Orange, Purple, Lime Green.

Steps To Successful Overseas Promotional Product Sourcing & Importing

custom overseas sourced products

Is your business looking to purchase a large quantity of branded promotional products and/or need to custom manufacture a unique premium item or product to your specifications?

Avoid the risks that can come with using the unproven factories found on China direct websites and work with custom product sourcing and manufacturing experts instead. In the end, you’ll still save cost, time and get peace of mind working with a dedicated team of custom product experts with products sourced only from trusted and reliable factories.

Source an existing product and save cost by importing in volume, or create your own design from the ground up.

 The following steps will ensure a successful overseas project:

  1. For maximum cost savings on large or heavy items or for completely custom made products, it is best to allow 60-120 days until product is required so that ocean freight can be utilized.  Ocean freight requires around 30 days for transit time which is why you should try to allow 60-120 days.  If time is an issue, air shipping can cut shipping time down to 5-7 days, but may add to the cost.
  2. Work with a promotional products distributor that has experience with custom manufacturing and importing as well as sufficient product liability insurance ($1,000,000 per occurrence & $2,000,000 aggregate is recommended).
  3. Request a quote based on your product and timeline needs.  It is best to communicate a product budget in advance if you have one.  This will help the distributor to best meet your requirements and will also save time.
  4. Once the project is underway, ensure that you will receive a digital mock up first. Then follow that up with a physical, pre-production sample.  If the project is under a time constraint, a photo of the pre-production sample may be sufficient for production approval.
  5. Once your product has shipped, tracking information should be made available to you (if shipped via air).
  6. Ensure that you will not be charged with any import duties as this should normally be handled by the distributor.
  7. Immediately after the product is delivered, inspect the shipment to ensure that you received exactly what you were expecting.
