Top 6 Tips For Creating Awesome Canvas Totes

There are so many options to choose from when purchasing a giveaway or GWP.  We often promote our trend-setting features like tassels, metallic fabrics, and colorful flair to help make your brand stand out.  However, when it comes to custom printed canvas tote bags keeping it simple will keep you on top. Consumers love them because of their simplicity and practicality!  You will love them because they are very cost efficient.

So how do you choose the perfect promotional canvas tote bag for your company?  We are sharing our top 6 tips!

#5. Fun Designs

Canvas bags are popular for their simplicity, but don’t be afraid of color or creativity.  Although natural canvas color is more affordable than colored canvas material, you can utilize colorful artwork or edge-to-edge printing to create a lovely, colorful, and playful affect for maximum eye-catching brand exposure.

#4. Bigger isn’t Always Better…

Lightweight bags are durable and useful for giveaways and expos. They are affordable and will last a long time. Granted, the bags may not feel premium or luxe, but they absolutely do the job and are keepers for many years. Choose one of our lightweight custom canvas totes.

Hotel Quality Padfolios

We’ve come a long way since the original mass production, commercial printing days where hand-binding was done. These binders, journalbooks, padfolios and portfolios are now streamlined, developed with quality and special features, using components from various countries, and made with a modern mind.

Below we have compiled a list of our favorite high quality padfolios and porfolios, in which there’s ample room for your private label and company branding on the front (or back), in deboss, emboss, or traditional silk screen printing. For full color printing, we have various options as well.

My favorite two new journal books are these two. One is faux leatherette material, mimicking real leather very nicely and made with good quality. Very sturdy and can have mulit-color imprinting. The one on the right is a popular journal size but with now a splash and pop of color on the edges. That’s right! White pages with colored edges for a cool, bright effect that stands out.

These books are highly customizable with imprint capabilities both on the inside and outside (on most), as well as customized pages. Most of these styles you can also personalize with individual names or initials on them.

We pride ourselves in high quality materials, construction, and imprinting. Feel free to contact us for further questions, samples or pricing 877.644.4660 or service@femmecustom.com

Technology Promotional Products

Promotional products range anywhere from T-shirts to pens to much more. But if you want your brand to look more modern, then nothing compares to offering technology promotional products  to your clients. We currently live in an era where laptops and smartphones are kept in our hands almost 24/7, so giving technology items as a thank you message to clients and prospective clients is a great idea.
As a brand trying to gain more popularity, having a technology promotional item warrants that it can satisfy any client, and if the item is versatile, people can gain from the benefits provided by the item and use it every day,while giving exposure to your brand. The reason why technology promotional items are chosen as a promotional gift, apart from the benefit that they offer people is their durability. These types of products last customers for a long time, and they’re not thrown out after a few months.
Choose technology promotional items to increase brand visibility and offer your loyal customers something to thank them for their support, some technology promotional items include a mouse, USB flash drives, MP3 players, power banks, computer bags, CD Covers, Bluetooth player, etc
From a technological point of view, USB flash drives are one of the most effective promotional products, especially for their versatility and practical advantages. A promotional USB flash drive is very convenient because it is small, durable and portable and can be easily carried with you wherever you want to go. It is also a very lightweight promotional item and is fully needed for personal and professional functions. You can take personalization to a new level and add a custom printed lanyard to your USB flash drive so your client can wear it comfortably around their neck, hand or place it somewhere. Alternatively, you can use a custom printed keychain, and the USB drive will become a perfect storage device.
Here at Femme Promo, we design custom technological promotional wholesale items all day, and most customers want a stylish, high-end looking product, so we often look for innovative ideas that meet our client’s personalized details and have a very sophisticated and modern look.

Promotional Notebooks and Journals

TOPimageWe are amongst such giants as the iPad, smart phone, and laptop computer but I’m willing to bet that somewhere on the cluttered desk next to the Macbook there’s an old fashioned paper notebook with all kinds of interesting tid bits in it. Why are notebooks and journals still in use when we have such amazing technology at our fingertips, you ask? The truth is that notebooks still satisfy certain desires that all the technology in the world can’t and never will. Notebooks are inexpensive, multi-functional, extremely tangible and durable, and channel creativity in a way that can’t be matched.

For example, my smart phone and laptop computer both pale in comparison to the mini Moleskine day to day planner that is kept in my purse for quick jotting and note taking. I don’t know about you, but I happen to have the short term memory of a gnat, therefore my pocket notebook does more than come in handy, it’s a life saver!

My number one reason for owning a journal is for the feel of it! Yes, I could easily log my daily thoughts in a tidy file on my computer but it just doesn’t feel the same as having a pen in hand and scribbling my thoughts down as they come. There’s a sense of self expression that one gets from writing that can’t be replicated. Not to mention the fact that while the use of phones and computers is prohibited in some settings, notebooks and journals conveniently are not.

For these reasons, you’ll never see a customized notebook or journal go out of style.  It will always be one of the top promotional products to give away because it is perfect for an executive gift, a sales person, a professional, a nurse, a student, a doctor, a mom, a teen, a meeting attendee… you get the idea. ;) And if you choose an exciting look and feel, you can bet your logo will be seen and recognized daily on your custom notebook or journal.

This brings us to the next question, what type of promotional notebook will be the most loved and widely used?  Small compact notebooks, sizes 4×6 or the most popular 5×7 are easy to carry and extremely popular since they can be used for jotting notes, brainstorming, making lists, and as a pseudo day plannerFull size notebooks are more formal and give you greater area for a cool design.  The material selection is essential since you want something that will stick around for as long as possible. Leather (or leatherette), vinyl, and polypropylene are popular. However, eco friendly notebooks made of recycled paper and organic inks are gaining popularity and may be the way to go.

blank_smNJ top half1NJ top half2NJ top half3Finally you’ll need to decide on a type of binding. There are quite a few to choose from such as spiral, comb, sewn, clasp, pressure, and perfect bound. Personally I’m a big fan of spiral bound notebooks. Being that I am left handed I find them to be much more efficient. It’s more comfortable and I’m able to use the entire page instead of one fourth of it! Spiral notebooks are also more convenient in that they have built-in pen holders. Although, spiral or bound, nowadays there are hundreds of custom notebooks and journals that include a pen look or a built-in pen holder feature to make your next promo journal or notebook completely functional.

Here are a few of our most popular notebooks and journals:
