We have unique new branding methods available to offer on a select few products. These methods are designed to help your brand stand out and leave a lasting impression.

Notebook Belly Bands:


On some of our notebooks we can now offer a full colour printed horizontal ‘belly bands’. These bands are similar to that of well-known notebook brands such as Moleskine, but completely customizable. The branding guidelines of the notebooks that can be branded with the belly band have already been updated with the information on the dimensions of each belly band for each notebook.

Because of the position of the band, we cannot have pens placed in the pen loop on these notebooks. The branding price list offers three prices based on an A4, 5 or 6 notebook, though each belly band within these three categories has a specific size.

Notebooks that can be branded with the belly band include the following;
  • Stanford A5 Notebook
  • Stanford A6 Notebook
  • Jotter A5 Notebook
  • Jotter A6 Notebook
  • Excelsior A5 Notebook
  • Renaissance A5 Notebook
  • Fourth Estate A4 Notebook
  • Fourth Estate A5 Notebook
  • Prominence A5 Notebook
  • Newport A5 Notebook
  • Colourblock A5 Notebook
  • And more…
 

Full Colour Print on Bags - Digital Direct Transfer:


We now offer an incredible new process that gives us the ability to brand full colour (digital print) on some of our bags. The digital direct transfer process involves printing the full colour artwork onto a special transfer paper and then transferring the artwork from the paper onto the bag using heat and pressure. This gives us a spectacular, eye catching result!

And the biggest benefit is to your budget!

Where a 6 colour screen print on a non-woven bag would mean an expensive individual print and six different setup costs, this NEW process will charge only 1 basic setup fee, no matter the number of colours.

This makes multi-colour prints on bags, not only, much more affordable, but also more effective. We will update our website to show which bags can be branded with this new method.
 
 

Digital Printing on Drinkware:


We have a new Digital Printing process that enables us to brand full colour prints on drinkware with a smooth surface and without handles. This is specifically designed for wrap prints on water bottles such as the Braxton Water Bottle. In the blog image you can see how a full colour logo really transforms a product into something unique.

Bottles that can be branded with this new method:

  • Braxton Water Bottle
  • Solano Water Bottle
  • Nautilis Water Bottle 700ml
  • Cabana Water Bottle 750ml
  • Avalon Water Bottle 750ml
  • Tropica Water Bottle
  • Hype Water Bottle 700ml


Laser Engraving on Clothing:


Very soon we will be able to offer a unique new clothing branding option; engraving! This new technique offers amazing possibilities that are not available with any other branding method. With engraving on clothing we can brand over zips and seams.

In our new Clothing Catalogue that has just been released you can find a full description of the new process and a list of the limitations and benefits of using engraving on clothes.

The result of laser etching on clothing is a subtle, tone-on-tone branding that looks very professional.
The laser engraving process removes the top dye layer of the fabric, leaving a slightly shaded colour variant underneath. Unfortunately, this does not show clearly on white, black or white garments, so we do not engrave those colours.

This method creates highly detailed Images and logos that cannot be branded with embroidery. And it also does not damage the integrity of waterproof material.

A few of our Clothing items that can be engraved;

  • Biz Sprint T Shirts
  • Biz Sprint Golf Shirts
  • Slazenger Apex T Shirt
  • Biz Razor Golf Shirt
  • Slazenger Victory Golf Shirts
  • Elevate Quinn Golf Shirts
  • Gary Player Wynn Golf Shirts
  • Cutter & Buck Genre Golf Shirts
  • Cromwell Softshell Jacket
  • Cromwell Softshell Bodywarmer
  • Elevate Jozani Hybrid Softshell Jackets
  • And much more

For the latest, innovative corporate branding always trust Brand Innovation. We are always striving to be the best at what we do.

We hope that you love the new offerings!

Valentines Day is globally known as the day of love! All around the world people celebrate this day by bestowing their loved ones with flowers, hugs, kisses, chocolates and Valentine's gifts.

Where did the tradition of Valentine’s Day come from?


Valentine's is an annual holiday celebrated on the 14th of February. No one can pinpoint the exact origin of Valentine's Day with started in ancient Rome with a festival called Lupercalia.
The romantics of the time celebrated love with a large feast and a festival lasting a couple of days.


Who is Cupid?


Cupid also comes from the Romans. He is a classic mythological god - the god of love, desire, attraction and affection.

Legends told that he carried a magical bow and arrow, imbued with the power of love. If he shot two people with the arrows they would fall head over heels in love.


Love is really what makes the world go round.
Do those we care about know how much we care?

From us all at Brand Innovation, we wish you a month of happiness, love and joy.
May Cupid be spreading his or her love your way!

The New Moon for October 2016 was on Saturday, 30 October.
Many people worldwide believe that the New Moon is the time to set new goals and intentions for the month ahead.
A time for beginnings.

For many of us at this time of year, especially in the Southern Hemisphere, it is a time when we need to regroup, redraw and dig deep for the last 6 weeks of work before our annual holidays. This time of year in South Africa is always busy, many businesses are not taking on new work as they want to complete the work they have before the Christmas holidays.

So the last few months involve completing as well as setting new goals for the month ahead.

It is also a time to say thank you to all our clients and suppliers and to tie up all loose ends and finish what we need to do before the end of the year.

Brand Innovation is here to assist you in saying thank you to your clients, suppliers and staff.

We wish you a great November 2016.

End of year creative corporate gifts for clients. September is here and with that, here in Africa, a time of new beginnings, when the jasmine flowers, when there is a spring in our steps and the knowledge that the Christmas holidays are close.

It feels like the year has just begun, but we are so close to the end of the year. There still feels like so much must be done. Now is the time to plan for the end of year, to continue doing good business, to plan for next year and to thank and celebrate those who are our partners in business.

Now is the time to acknowledge our clients and customers who continue to trust us with their business.

A Unique Corporate Gift: The Fitness Tracker


So that brings me to the idea of what are creative corporate gifts that I would love to get? What end of year gifts can inspire and help others in some way?
Well, top of my list is the fit tracker, of which we have 2 options.

I have been wearing one to test it and it is really helping me “take more steps” each day. I love exercise, but with work always taking focus, even when I am at home, I often don’t take enough steps. It is said we should take 10 000 steps a day. As I type this, I am close to 7000, which means I might have to run around the block later. But how great to give a gift that helps people exercise and gives them a feeling of achieving their goals of 10 000 steps. We all need to be moving more, so give a positive and creative gift this end of year.

It has many great features, like find your phone and more.

So for my first creative gift that for me would be great to give and receive, it is the fit tracker.

Head over to our product pages for the 2 options: The Fit Tech Tracker and The Fitboosta Activity Tracker.

Email us and let us know your thoughts.

We are here to delight our clients and be your promotional product supplier of choice.
