Coming Your Way
Product media is all about what’s new, so for the start of the year, we asked BPMA members for the products that they think will be great for 2017.
The Carole Group
The name alone should give you something to talk about. The NPL-3297 pen was chosen by the Carole Group. It has a soft touch rubberised finish with mirror engraving as standard. A perfectly angled pointer can be used with your smartphone or tablet. You need to try one to believe how good it is, claims Carole Group.
Mid Ocean Brands
Mid Ocean Brands has some great tech gadgets, including a magnetic smartphone holder that connects to a multitude of surfaces, such as in the car, or in the office.
It is also offering a rotation wireless smart indoor security camera which utilises your existing Wi-Fi and can be accessed from anywhere providing photos and videos. The camera has an SD card slot and an AC-DC adapter.
SPS and High Profile
SPS and High Proﬁle have a raft of new products for 2017. The new Sentinel premium bag collection comprises a holdall, rucksack and messenger bag, all with a stylish carbon ﬁbre effect ﬁnish. The contemporary designs are perfect for the current trend for lifestyle items in promotional marketing.
UK-made H2O Active sports bottles are now available with fruit infuser in a selection of vibrant colours, while the bestselling UK-made Americano thermal mug will be available with a new spill-proof lid in 2017. The Brite-Americano is also available with a quality tyre effect-grip, to add an extra dimension to promotional drinkware.
The new range from SPS also includes new notebooks, including a larger version of the bestselling Noir, while the new Bluetooth keyboard is a fantastic new gadget, ideal for corporate gifts.
High Proﬁle has taken the bestselling style and material of the Baseline sports bottle range, and changed the neck style so that it can now be combined with any lids in the H2O Active range from SPS. This gives a larger colour choice, plus the option of a ﬂip closure or domed lid.
PF Concept is going technical with the Morley aluminium Bluetooth speaker. A built-in music control allows you to call on-the-go through your smartphone and to control music and volume. It includes a Micro USB to USB charging cable and 3.5mm auxiliary cable.
The geo insulated tumbler is a tasteful stainless steel double-wall vacuum tumbler with copper insulation which keeps drinks hot for eight hours and cold for 24 hours. The shape isn’t just for show but prevents condensation on the outside of the tumbler.
