 Here's a brand-new swag idea for 2011:
Fold-Flat Water Bottles


Swag Connection Item #zswih-hk

As someone who loves to travel I love this new foldable 24oz. water bottle. This takes up almost no room in a carry-on or gym bag, but it expands to hold as much as a good-size sport bottle.

This exclusive new travel water bottle comes pre-printed with the design around the edges as shown. Your logo is custom printed in the center. For now this is the only color scheme. Hopefully if the item catches on they'll start offering it in a wider variety of colors.

While the fold-flat design is handy for the recipients, it's also a space and money saver for the company that orders them to hand out. They take up MUCH less storage area than regular water bottles and also cost significantly less to ship.

If you're thinking about trade show giveaways, these are a fantastic choice. They're a brand-new item most people don't already own, they're inexpensive and useful - and they don't take up a lot of room at your booth.

Priced between $2.39-$3.29 with a minimum order of just 100 bottles, this is one of my favorite new swag ideas for 2011.

*******UPDATE: ADDED 1/20/11*******
I found another, similar fold-flat water bottle today from another vendor. It's solid color and doesn't have the pre-printed design, plus it's a little lower in price:

Here are 3 great new recycled swag items I absolutely love for 2010:

First off, check out this recycled notecard wheel:


Ecoswag Item ALX-1341

This is definitely one of those items you really need to see in person to fully appreciate. While fan-type jotter notepads like this are nothing new, this one is cooler than the rest. It's made of recycled material, with a sturdy, smooth cover that looks great with a black logo imprint as shown. The first page has a 3-year calendar, followed by 76 pages in 4 color-coded sections. The pages are thicker than a regular notepad, in fact they're more like index cards. Each card is lined and perforated along the left-hand side to tear out neatly. You can't see it in the photo, but there's an attached orange elastic privacy band that keeps the jotter neatly closed when not in use.

This particular item currently only comes with the citrus-orange cover, but it really looks sharp and has a hip & modern vibe. Priced at under $4.00 this is a great swag idea to leave behind after sales calls or to give as a gift to clients or prospects.

Next, here's a similar item for keeping cards or photos:


Ecoswag Item ALX-1350

This is a smaller sized "wheel" with a recycled paperboard cover that contains 10 durable vinyl sleeves. It's perfect for keeping business cards, credit cards or even wallet-size photos! It can be hard to find swag ideas that will appeal to such a wide range of people, but this one works equally well for senior citizens, soccer moms or business people. You can barely see it, but this one also has an elastic band to keep it neatly closed when not in use.

Priced at $3 or less, this is one of my favorite "giveaway-priced" swag ideas for spring events and trade shows. This one does come in a choice of colors - Royal Blue, Black, Chocolate Brown or Orange.

Last but Not Least... a Recycled Password Keeper


Ecoswag Item #ALX-1342

For those who have too many logins and passwords to keep track of, this recycled Password Pad is a swag idea whose time has come. It's arranged in alphabetical order with sections for recording account names, password hints and passwords. Made of recycled material with a metal spiral binding & elastic privacy strap, this is a fantastic swag idea for creatively marketing your high tech company at events and conferences.

This item comes in Black, Brown or Royal Blue as shown. Also in the $3.00 and under price range, this is a unique and useful promotional item that many people have not yet seen.

Here's a new environmentally-friendly promotional product I just came across today - a reusable Silicone Coffee Sleeve that can be custom-imprinted with your logo or artwork:

If you've been anywhere near a kitchen store or housewares department lately you can't miss all the new silicone gadgets, oven mitts and bakeware now on the market. Silicone is extremely durable and heat-resistant, which makes it a great insulator for hot surfaces. Silicone oven mitts can withstand temperatures up to 675 degrees Farenheit and even protect your hands when plunged into boiling water.

It doesn't take long for the promotional products industry to pick up on hot retail trends, and these silicone coffee sleeves are a perfect example of that. They're far superior to cardboard coffee sleeves in terms of insulation properties and also easier to grip. Their durability allows them to be used on a daily basis for a long time (my guess is that these will last several years at least) which keeps hundreds of cardboard coffee sleeves out of landfills.

As a swag idea, these are simply a great advertising vehicle for your logo or message. They're eco-friendly, highly mobile and made to be kept and used on a daily basis. They're also different and cool looking enough to generate buzz and prompt a "where did you get that?" response from others.

This new promo idea is at a great price point if you're looking for giveaway swag ideas - $1.62/ea with a minimum order of 3,000 pieces (that price includes your own custom color of silicone, plus a 2-color logo print)

There are a ton of different ways you can use these for creative marketing - they'd be a fantastic item for event marketers, great for including in swag bags and perfect for coffee shops to use for rewarding loyal customers. They're also a size and shape that could easily be used for direct mail marketing.

INTERESTED IN THIS SWAG IDEA FOR YOUR COMPANY OR UPCOMING EVENT?

Just call or email us here at Swag Connection and we'll be happy to help you out with information and pricing for your custom silicone coffee sleeve project. We love to hear from our blog readers! Simply call us toll-free at 866-247-4320 or email us: sales@swagconnection.com.
