We see plenty of newfangled trends come and go in the promotional products industry, some that last only a season or two and others that end up being as classic and timeless as the little black dress. In this new feature, the Trend Report, we’ll be exploring these dazzling new trends as they sweep through our product line – and first up is wooden products and wood grain finishes.
Warm, earthy, and downright gorgeous, wood and wood finishes are having their heyday in fashion, jewelry, retail and interior design. Easily tailored for style preferences from the rustic and to the refined, it’s no wonder wood finishes appeal to nearly everyone. Now they’re hitting the promotional products industry in a big way – and we are absolutely loving it! Here are a few examples from our collection.
The wood grain print on these plastic frames adds a unique, earthy twist to the classic wayfarer style. The glasses offer UVA400, UVA and UVB protection, include your customization in one location and are sure to bring an incontrovertible cool factor to your branding efforts.
Rich-grained, deep-hued walnut wood paired with lustrous brass trimmings give this pen a high-end finish that’s simply stunning. To make a truly eye-catching statement, have your logo laser engraved on the Walnut Ballpoint Pen before your next major event.
Like the Walnut Ballpoint Pen, the Bosque Tumbler’s appearance is elevated by the handsome combination of wood and metal. Normally this would give an industrial feel, but the burl wood veneer finish and stainless steel come together in a way that’s nothing but elegant and polished.
A wooden finish on a state of the art tech product offers a welcome surprise. Here you have all the benefits of a top of the line Bluetooth speaker with the rustic appeal of a natural, course-grained wood. Laser-engraving on the center of the speaker’s face provides the perfect finishing touch.
As unexpected and refreshing as the Bluetooth speaker, these Mojave Wooden Bluetooth Headphones bear the same irresistible blend of nature and technology. Genuine cherry stained wood and smooth, black, vegan leather compliment each other so well you’ll forget you have top quality sound as well as picturesque beauty in your custom headphones.
For a touch of whimsy, these mini wooden pallets serve as beverage coasters that will instantly charm your gift recipients. Handcrafted from real pallet wood, these unique custom gifts are a clear choice for warehouses or shipping and manufacturing companies, but also take the current “hipster chic” trend to a whole new level.
Bars, brewpubs, breweries and beer enthusiasts alike will love this solid wood paddle beer tasting set, complete with four, 6-once miniature pilsner glasses and custom laser engraving on the handle. If they’re going to taste your craft brewed ales, lagers, witbiers, stouts or ciders, let them do so in style.
The Dakota Soft Bound JournalBook™ features a faux wood grain soft cover that gives it instant warmth and charm. A built-in elastic strap, color-coordinated ribbon page marker, pen loop, and a document pocket on the interior back cover are all included with 80 sheets of delicate cream lined paper and custom debossing on the front cover.
