The FORMost sales team recently attended the Chesapeake Promotional Products Association Winter Expo. This is an event where exhibitors from many of our ad specialty suppliers share with us the latest and greatest in promotional items. We have the pleasure of collecting samples and learning about products that we can then take to our clients to help them strengthen their brands. The expo was at M&T Bank Stadium just a few days before the Ravens played in the Super Bowl. Pretty neat! Too bad they didn’t actually play there because the lights stayed on the whole time!
One of the products that got our attention was the Gadget Grips DOT. This patent pending grip is for the home button of your smartphone or tablet device. It is a small, round circle with an adhesive back and a smooth, but rubbery feel. It serves two purposes: personalization and functionality.
I’ll admit, I was skeptical. I have a pretty special relationship with my iPhone (it never leaves my side) and I just didn’t understand why I would want to add this sort of thing to my phone. I was wrong. There, I said it. This thing is SO cool!
Here’s why: Since applying the DOT to the concave and hard-to-find home button of my iPhone, I have a much easier time locating the home button when I pull my phone from my pocket or purse. Now, I know exactly which way is upright. Plus, using the home button is a lot easier because its tactile surface makes it easier to press the button. You don’t have to press as hard since the button is elevated and your finger grips it better. I LOVE it and will not be without one from now on!
As for personalization, a logo or icon is printed on the DOT in full color. Imagine how many times per day someone would see your logo if it were on the home button of a device they use to call, text, email, FaceTime, tweet, Facebook, Instagram, etc.?
Great exposure for your brand, great functionality! Call us for pricing and samples.
