That’s a wrap…
Whether they’re placed in conference delegates’ bags or a thank you to your staff members for their hard work, gifts and promotional items are an important aspect of the MICE and business tourism industries.
There’s no better way to say thank you than with something special from Carrol Boyes. A household and international name, the company was founded in 1989. Carrol Boyes is a multicultural company designing, manufacturing and distributing an extensive range of distinctive metal homeware, giftware, flatware and table top products.
The meticulously crafted product range currently encompasses well over 1 000 items. Trademark metals and materials include pewter, spun and cast aluminium, stainless steel, chrome plated zinc, wood, leather, ceramics and ABS resin.
Born out of the necessity to offer only the best gifting, reward and recognitions solutions to top companies, the Carrol Boyes Corporate Bespoke process has been developed to provide clients the opportunity to collaborate with the iconic Carrol Boyes brand from conception to delivery.
The company’s in-house design capabilities, manufacturing facilities, inherent understanding of branding, and a firm commitment to South African design ensures a complete solution to create a bespoke gift as unique as your company.
A gift with a difference is the Supa Sola Lamp from Corporate Conference Gifting. The Supa Sola Lamp harnesses the power of the sun to give you six products in one. Charge up your cell phone, iPod, Kindle, Go-Pro or camera when you have no access to power. You can use the LED lamp or torch at night when you need light and listen to FM radio or use the emergency alarm.
The Supa Sola Lamp functions:
• two solar panels for reduced charging time
• dynamo crank charger to charge on overcast days or at night
• can charge via USB/AC power
• five mobile tips included (iPhone, BlackBerry, Nokia, Samsung and Micro USB)
• LED camping or desk lamp
MagnifiSAnt was started in 2008 to provide the South African market with custom-made promotional goods for unique locations, brands, events and teams – and, creating in the process – bespoke products not previously found in the tourism, retail, sporting and corporate markets. “We wanted to offer something different for customers who normally buy standard promotional gifts and simply print their brand on. In our view, it could be just as cost effective to make something truly unique for their brand or industry,” says MagnifiSAnt’s MD, Stuart Dobson.
Since then, MagnifiSAnt has created products for many of the largest brands in the country – from the Apartheid Museum to Coca-Cola, Vodacom, Santam, British American Tobacco, Cell C, MTN, PPC, KFC, ENGEN, SA Cricket, SARU Springboks and many more. “Actually moulding the client’s brand into an attractive and functional rubber product not only allows for tactile interaction with the brand, but has also made the promotional item appear more valuable and people seem to hold onto them a lot longer, keeping the brand in close proximity and therefore top of mind,” Dobson explains.
MagnifiSAnt currently manufactures promotional PVC rubber products such as: USB flash drives/memory sticks, key rings, fridge magnets, magnetic bottle openers, bar and placement mats, mouse pads, coasters, mobile phone charms, smartphone and iPad covers, badges, luggage and school bag tags, zipper pullers, mugs and mini mugs, photo frames, calendars, CD covers, wristbands, earphones and more.
