Prodir QS Stone

Prodir QS Stone – more mineral, less plastic

PRODIR QS STONE – THE AMAZING MINERAL PEN

When the Swiss designers from Prodir – the renowned writing tool company – created the new QS Stone ballpoint pen, their main goal was to obtain a material that would use as little plastic as possible.

The new material has minerals that have replaced up to 60% of the old plastic structure. QS Stone became a solid ballpoint pen, its weight increased by 50%. This did not spoiled their elegance, but rather increased it.

 

 

 

COMPONENTS AND ACCESSORIES

The material with the mineral component is currently found as an option only on models QS01, QS20 and QS30.

The QS Stone model is elegantly accessorized with a satin metallic clip, available in five colours. The pen body, the part containing the mineral material, is produced in 8 colour variants, 4 metallic tones – Gold, Copper, Silver, Graphite – and 4 colours with names inspired from mineral kingdom – White Dolomite, Black Carbon, Red Quartzite and Blue Cobalt.

And another novelty: the entire Prodir pen range now benefits from the standard Floating Ball lead free refill, including the mineral structure models. One more reason to be selected by any sustainable brand as a premium quality promotional writing tool.

 

 

To choose the most suitable colour and structure, it helps us – as usual – the configurator created by the Swiss manufacturer.

Using the online app that Prodir created on their website https://configurator.prodir.com/en/, one can easily configure the desired QS Stone ballpoint pen. As we previously stated, you can have the mineral material option only for 3 models of the Prodir pens range: QS01, QS20, and QS30.

Send us your chosen configuration and one of our consultants will create a quotation for you.

Congrats, Prodir, for inovating on the road towards ”Less plastic”!

Protect the environment: customizable disposable cups

Bamboo fiber cup

Bamboo fibre tumbler with silicone lid

 

 

One of the companies` principles often mentioned in the last few years is the one of considerate and protect the environment in all their business stages. Choosing to advertise the brand with promotional products who openly support this principle, is a big step towards the brand commitment to environmental conservation.

One of our suggestions for this step is offering customizable reusable cups.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A huge amount of plastic and paper mugs and cups are thrown daily. Climate impact studies have been done, articles in renown newspapers have been written for the public awareness, specialized environmental NGOs are getting involved trying to solve a problem continuously growing.

Very few of plastic cups are recycled, and the paper ones (contrary to popular belief) cannot be yet widely recycled with the available technologies because of the insulating plastic film.

We will suggest you to use cups and mugs of less frequently used materials, so it can be reused and more or less recycled, such as: bamboo fibre, glass, recyclable PP, porcelain, with a smaller environmental footprint.

 

 

 

KeepCup – reusable customizable cup

 

 

Because the targeted companies are the ones who deliver to the general population billions of plastic and paper cups and mugs, the reusable cups offers the possibility of customization, in order to involve these big brands to work towards the gradual replacement of the containers with negative environmental impact.

 

 

 

Tritan Thermal Mug

 

 

 

”Protect the environment!” – this is the main message that can be conveyed through the campaigns using customizable reusable cups, reasserting the companies` sustainability principles and helping to educate consumers about the environment.

Moleskine – a brand for important projects

molekine clasic

 Updated in September 2019

Moleskine is a well-known and popular notebook brand all over the world. It’s natural for your important campaigns to associate your company logo with a beautiful story, giving customers a real brand experience with your own story.

The Story

Moleskine brand is synonymous with personal identity, culture, memory and imagination.
Moleskine Notebook is actually the successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries. Among them, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Bruce Chatwin. A simple, black booklet with rounded corners, an elastic page holder and an expandable inner pocket: an object made for over a century by a small French producer, a supplier of Parisian stationery stores, where the world’s artistic and literary avant-garde have bought it and made it immortal.

The English writer and traveler Bruce Chatwin named it ”moleskine” in the ’80s, by the time he regretted the closing of the French small fabric. 10 years later, a Milan producer has followed the writer’s footsteps, resumed book production and built what we all love today: the Moleskine brand, The Notebook.

 

 

 

Moleskine can be the classical notebook. Or it can be the planner so useful both at home and in the office, or the travel journal for the most beautiful places you have visited, or the special notebook where the artistic passions are outlined.

What should you choose? What is the best fit for your brand and and your important project. A Lexonn consultant can help you, if necessary, in order to establish the most appropriate option.

Textile promotional bag – trends for 2018

sacosa promotionala

 

Textile promotional bag has always been in the top mos appreciated customizable objects. It`s recognition came from a multitude of positive features:

=> relatively low cost

=> utility

=> many designs, materials, colours

=> many opportunities of customizations with a logo / message / image

=> ideal for green marketing campaigns

 

 

Personalizing and offering as giveaway a natural fiber bag will continue to be a trend in 2018, sustained by the Romanian legislation stipulating an interdiction for import and commercialization of thin (under 50 microns) and very thin (under 15 microns) plastic bags with handle, starting from 1st of July this year.

It is a good time for companies wishing to re-affirm their environmental footprint principles and to include marketing in sustainability policy. By customizing a textile bag with their own logo or with a promotional message, they can help educate the public about ways to reduce pollution.

 

sacosa personalizata

 

1. Textile bag designs

You can choose from a wide assortment of designs, with different shapes and volumes: classical shopping bags, gift bags, special container bags etc.

 

2. Fabric types

The fabric type is important on the matter of reducing pollution. For companies that want to avoid using plastic bags (even biodegradable ones), it is advisable to choose natural cotton bags: plain cotton, cotton canvas, jute or any combinations of natural fiber fabrics.

 

 

3. Handles, accesories and closure types

Depending on their purpose, bag`s handles can be short, medium or long (for carrying on the shoulder). You can choose a combination of two types of handles, for a more versatile promotional object.

Bags can have a large, unfastened opening, as the classic ones, of thin cotton or the rigid jute bags, or they can have a zip closure or a fastening with decorative buttons for an elegant design.

Addition of an interior or exterior pocket is always useful. Some bags can be accessorized with wood or bamboo handles, especially the ones made of jute.

 

 

4. Ecological certification

Sustainable marketing campaigns will be endorsed by the promotional objects made of certified materials. The presence of any label like the ones below is a warrant of the quality of these materials.

 

 

5. Personalization

The potential customization depends on the chosen fabric. Textile bags can be screen printed, embroidered, or can have attached printed or embroidered labels. Here are a few examples of customized bags:

 

 

 

If you have decided to take advantage of this opportunity and you wish to include a personalized promotional textile bag in your promotional portfolio, all you have to do is to choose the design, the fabric, the colour and the accessories and your marketing campaign is good to go!

                                      hardcover notebook                           A6 notebook

 

Agenda triptic

 

2. Dimensiuni si sisteme de prindere

Cele mai intalnite dimensiuni pentru agende si notes-uri sunt A6 si A5, insa pentru promotionale destinate participantilor la un training/workshop – de exemplu – pot fi utile si cele format A4. La fel, intr-o campanie care are ca public-tinta copiii, sunt de efect notesurile mici format A7. Sistemul de prindere poate fi cu spire sau clasic, pe verticala sau pe orizontala, cu accesorii de inchidere tip elastic, clapa – magnetica sau simpla, curea etc.

 

 

3. Coperta: hard sau soft?

Daca delimitarile clasice erau hard cover pentru agende si soft cover pentru notebook-uri mici, noutatea adusa de marketingul multisenzorial a fost introducerea copertilor flexibile, moi, si la agendele format mai mare. Am dezbatut mai pe larg acest subiect intr-un articol anterior, va facem si aici cateva sugestii de modele cu coperti soft, cu suprafata catifelata, pe langa cele cu coperta medium si hard:

 

 

Notebook covers - soft-medium-hard

 

Pentru orice agenda sau blocnotes, texturile copertilor difera in functie de materialul din care sunt realizate. Mai des intalnite sunt cartoanele speciale, hartia groasa, imitatia de piele, PVC etc. Materialele speciale sunt insa cele cu care iti poti surprinde clientii: fetru, pluta, carton reciclabil.

 

 

 

4. Pagini – tipuri de hartie si liniatura

 

 

Calitatea hartiei unui carnet contribuie foarte mult la crearea unei impresii favorabile din partea utilizatorilor. Alegerea tipului de hartie – offset (hartie poroasa), cretata mata, cretata lucioasa – depinde si de modul de personalizare dorit, in special daca iti doresti – de exemplu – personalizare cu logo pe coltul fiecarei foi.

Liniaturile uzuale ale foilor agendelor sunt dictando si foaie velina (alba, simpla). Poti alege insa, pentru o campanie dedicata workshop-urilor, liniatura de caiet de matematica sau pentru cadourile de sfarsit de an – agende anuale datate. Exista si varianta mixta, cu foi din mai multe tipuri de liniatura.

Un efect special il au inserturile, fie apartinand modelului respectiv de notebook, fie special create de voi pentru prezentarea companiei sau a anumitor produse. Nu orice notebook permite inserarea unor astfel de pagini, de aceea este bine sa afli daca producatorul realizeaza si astfel de modele.

 

Insert foaie de colorat

 

5. Design si accesorii

Un design special, accesorii atasate sau includerea intr-un set de birou sunt elementele care vor scoate in evidenta campania ta cu notebook-uri promotionale.

 

 

6. Personalizare agenda

Personalizarea pe care doresti sa o realizezi va influenta alegerea tipului de agenda / notebook. Tine seama de caracteristicile copertei, material, pozitie accesorii, pentru a putea stabili corect modul de personalizare posibil. Alegerea poate porni fie de la modelul de carnet, optandu-se pentru personalizarea posibila, fie de la modul si forma personalizarii dorite, alegand unul dintre modelele care permit acea imprimare.

Posibilitatile de imprimare a logo-ului brandului tau sunt multiple: print digital, print UV, policromie, hot stamping, gravura laser pe accesoriile metalice, embosare/debosare pe suprafete din imitatie de piele sau din PVC.

 

Este utila consultarea unui specialist in produse promotionale personalizate pentru a face cea mai potrivita alegere pentru campania ta.
