  2. My Top 5 Beverages for Promotional Stubbies

    My Top 5 Beverages for Promotional Stubbies

    Thirst. What better way to refresh that thirst than an ice-cold beverage. This is no problem when you have a promotional stubby holder. Promotional stubby holders, keep your drink cool and prevent you from getting the dreaded icy and wet hand that can occur with this.

    So you have your perfect Promotional Stubby Holder, and now you need a drink, no problem!

    My Top 5 Beverages for Stubbies

    1. Sparkling Water. Yes, posh water is on my top list. It’s refreshing, natural, sugar-free and with the bonus of being calorie free. I like it best really cold, which is where my promotional stubby comes in. My favourite combination is sparkling water and avocado on toast from a local café.

    2. Kombucha. I am a newbie to Australia and have seen Kombucha everywhere. My first sip and I was hooked. It has great benefits for the body, and I love how popular it is, not only in cafes but in almost every supermarket that I have been in. I love this in the morning before I head to work to start my day.

    3. Guinness. Being Irish, I love a Guinness, and we all know that the best Guinness can only be bought in Ireland. They have studied this, I read the research paper, and Guinness doesn’t travel that well. However, when I need an iron boost or a taste of home, I like a can of Guinness, nice and cold in my promotional stubby holder. This is perfect when I am at a gig or festival along with a big veggie burger

    4. San Pellegrino. This is my go-to drink when I need a sugar kick and want to sit back relax on my balcony with my favourite sarnie. It’s Italian and has an original taste that I love.

    5. Iced coffee. Coffee gets me through the day. Every. Day. When the days are hot, I like to go for an iced coffee, while walking along the beach or a local park. The caffeine hits the spot and being iced, cools me instantly.

    Promotional Product Essentials for the Office

    What do you think of when you think of office essentials? The three items that spring to mind for me are the USB drive, the pen, and the notebook.

    Just imagine your office life without a pen. It’s unfathomable. A promotional pen with your logo on it is a staple. We print your logo on any pen of your choice, whether it be a classic like our Metal Barrel Pens or something a little bit more special like our Colourful Modern Pens which you can laser engrave onto.

We won’t tell! The best thing about getting your notebook from us is that we can brand it with your logo or any words of your choice by pad printing, screen printing and 4CP digital printing. The choice is yours and we know that your clients and employees will be extremely impressed.

  6. Types of Promotional Mugs

    Types of Promotional Mugs

    Whatever type of promotional mug you are after there is sure to be a type that will meet your requirements. Check out the different types of mugs you can customise with your brand.

    Logo Printed Plastic Mugs

    Practical plastic… It is precisely what you think! Plastic mugs are brilliant, especially for outdoor events. They are lightweight, durable and are available in a variety of colours. Also, you don’t have the added stress of them smashing if they are accidentally dropped. It’s always nice to know your brand's merchandise is going to survive surprise accidents and last for many years.

    Branded Stainless Steel Cups

    You then have the option of stainless steel mugs. Similarly, to the plastic mugs, they are exceptionally good for outdoor events. They can be used for hot and cold drinks alike and are very durable as well as shatter-proof. They are smooth and comfortable to hold and look super classy once your logo has been laser engraved! Stainless steel promotional mugs are the kind of smart promo gift that can be used any time of the year.

    Promotional Ceramic Mugs

    Thirdly you have your regular ceramic mugs which are the most commonly used mugs. As these are made from clay, they are one of the most cost-effective mugs but aren’t as refined as other types. They are fairly durable and won’t break easily but are slightly heavier than the other types of mugs.

    Personalised Porcelain Mugs

    Lastly but not least, there are porcelain mugs. These are excellent premium quality and have a smooth, shiny surface unlike the duller surface of a ceramic mug. Too many people surprise, porcelain is remarkably strong therefore they do not need to be as thick as a ceramic, making them lightweight and look more refined.

    Personally, I don’t think you can beat a good old classic ceramic mug as they tend to have big comfortable handles as well as a large capacity so being a big tea lover they are great for me! That’s not to say I wouldn’t love to have a classier porcelain mug! But whatever option you are after we have it all.

    Promotional Plastic Pens

    Plastic promotional pens are, of course, the cheaper option so are great for people who have a tight budget. But don’t be put off and believe they are plain and simple because of this! You can customise them in many ways including pad printing, screen printing and full-colour digital print making them eye-catching and exciting. These pens are lightweight and come in a variety of colours making them perfect for your next business event. Our Coloured Parky Pens are a great example of promotional plastic pens.

    Logo Branded Metal Pens

    You then have the option of metal promotional pens. Due to them being made of a higher quality material they are obviously more expensive. However, spending that extra bit of money really can be worth it! Metal pens are often more reused as they look incredibly pleasing to the eye making them great promotional gifts. They are a brilliant way to promote your business without having to do much more than offering them to your clients. You can pad print these pens, like the plastic pens, but you are also able to have them laser engraved which achieves a classier premium finish.

  9. Non-Woven vs. Cotton Calico Bags

    Non-Woven vs. Cotton Calico Bags

    Both of these bags are extremely popular and for many reasons but which side will you take?

    Promotional cotton calico bags are firstly naturally grown and biodegradable which of course is a huge bonus! They are durable, lightweight, washable and have a large branding area. What more could you want from a promotional bag? Honestly, this bag suits everyone’s needs from a business perspective and the receiving client’s viewpoint. They are tremendously useful as you can carry practically anything in them making them a huge marketing opportunity as your brand will be seen in a wide variety of places. These are available in a variety of sizes with the natural cotton colour or pre-dyed fabric, so they don’t have to be plain and boring like you may think!

    Now for non-woven promotional bags, these are unfortunately not biodegradable as they are made from fabric that is derived from plastic, but this does have a bonus! It makes them more rigid than the cotton calico bags, therefore, making them more popular for business use as they retain their shape and consequently appear smarter. Although these bags are not biodegradable do not be fooled, they are still environmentally friendly as they are always reused reducing the amount of standard plastic bags that are in circulation. Unlike the cotton calico bags, our non-woven bags are available in a wide range of colours and come in a variety of sizes.

    Picked a favourite? No matter which style of bag you're after for your next event, the friendly team at Promo Planet can assist you. Contact our sales team for more information on bag decoration and delivery options.

  10. Differences Between Plastic Drink Bottles

    Differences Between Plastic Drink Bottles

    Have you ever looked at plastic bottles and wondered what makes them different to one another? To many peoples’ surprise there are a lot of differences which makes them a promotional item that can be tricky to decide on.

    Firstly, there are polycarbonate bottles which are made from a clear and extremely strong plastic. These are more long lasting and durable therefore making them a popular option all round. You can get these in a range of sizes, colours and with different lid options. The Translucent Premium Bottle is a perfect example of this type of plastic bottle and look amazing when customised.

    Then there are our soft squeezy bottles which are solid in colour and made from a softer plastic enabling you to squeezy the liquid out. Again, like the polycarbonate bottles, you can get these in a range of sizes and colours as well as different lid options. Our Promotional Sports Drink Bottles 500ml are a great example of this type of bottle. This type of promotional plastic bottle is ideal for schools, colleges and sporting events as they are very lightweight. They are also more appealing to people who have a lower end budget making them extremely popular.
