Why Settle? Do the Holidays Your Way!

We’ve all been there before, hearing things like “WOW! I love this gift set! But… can we change this item to this other item?” or “This is almost perfect! But, can you find something that’s a bit cooler, or like, techier, for us?”

In the spirit of giving, we put together our most popular gift sets all in one place and are offering a discount when any 3 or more items are gifted together.  Need the gifts drop shipped?  We can do that too!

Boost Sales by Staying Current With the Latest Face Mask Trends

A mask is not just a mask anymore. It’s a fashion statement. It’s about comfort, it’s about effectiveness, and it’s about fit. Companies release new mask models, and you may think — “I’m all set,” “Don’t need another mask,” “They are all the same,”…. which causes you to not open an email or request a sample of a newly released mask. If you have this type of mindset, you are putting yourself in a position of “missing out”. 

It’s up to us, the promo suppliers, to deliver mask solutions that merge brands’ needs with customers, prospects, and employees’ preferences. Whether masks are a suggestion or a requirement, people want fun, comfortable masks that have designs that support their values while showcasing their favorite brands.

Not All Gaiters Are Created Equal!

When we read a publicized study by a reputable university, we tend to believe what it says, but in some instances, we must question what we are being told.

As we are nearing the end of 2020, many of us have not been allowed to return to our offices and MUST work remotely.

We Are All in It Together: Making “It” Happen From a Manufacturer’s Perspective

For those that do not know me, I am one of the co-owners of the supplier, Toddy Gear. Our current business is manufacturing USA made masks in our factory in Illinois. 

Running a manufacturing facility in these times is especially difficult. Not only do we have to provide a safe environment for our employees by taking temperatures and blood oxygen levels daily. We monitor their health, create social distancing workstations, and wipe down all workstations and surfaces countless times daily, and in addition to this, we have to produce our distributor’s orders.
