The Universality and Value of Microfiber as a Promotional Giveaway

Promotional Microfiber is one of those products that typically gets overlooked unless specifically requested. I know Microfiber, how passe. But honestly, when I receive a microfiber cloth at an event, I keep it. Why do you ask? One, you can never have too many! It is small enough to fit in my pocket, and it’s functional. It is useful on many fronts, whether to clean my sunglasses and phone or even wipe my hands when a napkin is unavailable. I offer that I am not alone in this view. Ask anyone who has received a microfiber cloth, and they will tout the many benefits and uses of having one available.

You may think all mouse pads are created equal, but they are not! Find out why. 

Mouse pads are long-lasting gifts. With everyday use, a mouse pad typically lasts 5 to 10 years before it needs to be replaced, and this is true whether you are a gamer, casual user, designer, or office user.

PPAI Update

PPAI Update

Note from Jason Emery, President, Toddy Gear

Dear Customer,

Like many of you, I am disappointed that we will not be at the PPAI Expo to meet and mingle with everyone this year.  Nothing greater highlights my love for this industry other than the PPAI Expo.  It is truly the epicenter of what makes this industry great.  There is no right or wrong decision as to whether or not to attend, only a decision that is specific to the interests of our employees and their families as well as Toddy Gears’ ability to continue to service its clients.  This is the first time that Toddy Gear will not attend this great event, and hopefully, the only time.   We will truly miss seeing everyone who attends.

Even though we are not at the show, we would love to show our new releases. Get your first-hand experience with our latest products by reaching out to your Toddy Gear sales rep or emailing our team at to set up a one-on-one meeting or a group session. 

Thank you,

Jason Emery

The general impression is that custom packaging is super expensive, and the thought is, “My customer will never go for it.” So here is a question for you. Are you really sure? Are you sure your customer will leave increased brand perception and increased likelihood that their brand will be thought of when a product or service is needed on the table for an additional $$ per gift?

Welcome Back To The Office Pitch Ideas

More and more companies are setting up plans to bring people back to the office. Whether a company is planning a full or gradual return, they are taking the time to think about how to welcome back their teams. 

Everyone will have different feelings about returning to the office. Some employees will welcome the return, while others will be fearful and very anxious to head back for various reasons. So, how are companies going to ease the transition back? Communication and welcome back gifts are a part of that formula.
