I. Advertising gadgets
1. What are promotional gadgets?
Advertising gadgets are practical everyday objects that allow you to reach new customers with a promotional message. By placing a company logo or website address on them, company lanyards, wristbands, notebooks, pens, mouse pads, towels, and many more transform into durable and original advertising media. Advertising gadgets can be distributed to employees, customers, and business partners, allowing for effective building awareness of the brand’s existence. Research shows that 88% of people who receive promotional gadgets with prints remember the company’s name on them.
2. What is visualization?
Visualization is an illustrative image of the ordered product, which shows the graphic pattern indicated by the customer. The design is prepared free of charge before confirming the order and allows you to check what the final, personalized product with the logo, advertising slogan, or another image will look like.
3. Can I get a physical sample before ordering?
Yes – our clients can receive a sample of the selected product. However, there is an additional charge for ordering a physical sample.
4. What kind of advertising gadgets will be the best for customers?
Choosing the right advertising gadgets for customers must be related to the specificity of a given industry. If, for example, you run a hotel or restaurant, you can reach for personalized towels or deck chairs on the terrace. The most popular promotional gadgets include advertising lanyards, key rings with logos, printed mugs, pens, and personalized T-shirts. These are products that will work well in most companies. Choosing the right promotional accessories also depends on the size of the available budget.
5. What print should I put on the selected product?
When placing an order for a selected product with a print, you can send us any graphic pattern or ask us to prepare it. The most common prints on advertising gadgets include elements of the company’s visual identity, such as a logo, logotype, and slogan, as well as basic company information – phone number, website address, or e-mail address. However, our clients have the option of choosing any printing elements themselves: their colors, graphic patterns, textures, and inscriptions.
6. Can I choose any place for an imprint?
Not always – not all surfaces of our products are suitable for printing. Most often, the prints can be on the front or back of products, as well as on individual panels (in the case of products sewn from several elements). When buying advertising lanyards, we provide the option of one- or two-sided printing. In the case of purchasing mugs, containers, and office supplies, the details of the print location are individually agreed upon with the customer.
7. What are the best advertising gadgets for children?
Our offer includes face masks for children that have been decorated with nice prints, backpacks, and other clothing items, reflective vests, colored stripes, pens, pencil cases, and other school supplies, as well as mouse pads and personalized mugs. These are high-quality products that, thanks to personalization, will be great as unique gifts.
8. Are prints on clothes durable?
Yes – when making prints on personalized clothing, we primarily use DTF digital printing technology. The prints on the clothes are not only aesthetic, but also very durable. As the paint transferred from the foil to the clothes is pressed in a special press, DTF prints are not damaged in washing and do not come off the clothes even with excessive folding of the material.
9. What is a safety buckle?
A safety buckle is an element of an advertising lanyard that minimizes the risk of an accident. It is a lanyard, a plastic piece that breaks automatically when the lanyard is suddenly pulled by a person or machine. Lanyards with safety buckles are especially good for factories, production sites, and warehouses.
10. What is a connector in an advertising lanyard?
The buckle is a plastic element placed in an advertising lanyard, which allows for the convenient detachment of its tip. As promotional lanyards are usually used to carry keys, phones, or business IDs, the ability to detach a fragment of the lanyard without removing it from the neck each time is a factor in everyday comfort.
11. What is vegan leather?
Vegan leather is a type of durable, waterproof paper that has properties that make it look like leather. Ecological material is made of wood and is 100% vegan. The durability of vegan leather allows you to use it for various types of products: backpacks with prints, hip and shoulder bags, sachets, flower containers, and everyday items, as well as ecological pencil cases and wine bags.

Ecological products in our offer are made of two materials: rPET and vegan leather. rPET is a recycled plastic obtained in the recycling of bottles. It is mainly used for the production of advertising lanyards and wristbands. We also use vegan leather. This high-quality, durable and waterproof paper is used mainly in the production of backpacks, bags with prints, and containers for everyday objects.
14. How to choose a printing technique for an advertising gadget?
Due to our large machine park, we can precisely match the printing technique to the order. Making prints on various types of products requires the selection of appropriate technology. When fulfilling orders for advertising lanyards, we use sublimation. DTF digital printing and screen printing allow you to make high-quality prints on textiles. Pad printing, on the other hand, is used for placing prints on uneven surfaces. We use it in the production of mugs or pens. The latex printing technique is used to prepare wallpapers, posters, stickers, and other printing materials. In addition, we can use the technology of computer embroidery and engraving.
15. Which lanyard carabiner is the best?
The buckle that is most often used in advertising lanyards is a fish-type snap hook. Thanks to the rotating tip and easy opening, it allows you to conveniently attach keys and other accessories to a lanyard. Other types of buckles work well in other products (e.g. a ‘crocodile’ carabiner in a badge holder, and a ‘smurf’ in dog leashes).
16. Can I order advertising gadgets without a logo?
Yes – ordering advertising gadgets without a logo is not a problem. It is enough to provide us with information on the expected features of the selected product.
17. How to use advertising gadgets to promote your business?
Advertising gadgets with a logo or other graphic design can be distributed to clients, business partners, and employees. Personalized products can be given away at the company’s premises or added to the gifts you send out to your customers. Advertising gadgets will be perfect during fairs, business conferences, and other industry events. Since the level of remembering the information placed on them is high, advertising gadgets allow you to build brand awareness among new recipients.

The digital version of the logotype is in the form of vector or object graphics placed in a mathematically defined coordinate system. The logotype is the main part of the prints placed on advertising lanyards and other promotional gadgets.
19. What is DPI?
DPI is the basic unit of image resolution. DPI stands for ‘dots per inch’. The higher the DPI ratios, the higher the image resolution. The DPI factor is used in graphic and printing works. It plays an important role in selecting files for printing on advertising gadgets and other products.

RGB is an acronym that stands for one of the most popular color space models. The letters correspond to the colors: R – red, G – green, B – blue. These are the colors that allow you to obtain any color shade. To make this possible, it is enough to combine them in the right proportions.

Large-format prints are those prints that cannot be made on commercial printers available in offices or at home. Large-format prints are most often placed on foil or paper.
23. What is digital printing?
Digital printing is an advanced printing technique that requires the use of electronic files. In this case, the computer data is sent directly to the printing device. This form of data transmission allows free modification of the graphic or text elements of each image of the printed image.
24. What is screen printing?
One of the most commonly used printing techniques. Screen printing consists in passing the paint through a special template placed on a fine mesh (woven, metal, or made of synthetic fibers). The screen printing technique is most commonly used to print advertising lanyards, wristbands, T-shirts, bags, and other custom-made clothing items.
25. What is offset printing?
Offest printing is a popular flat printing technique. In this case, the image is transferred from a flat printed form to the printed surface using a special intermediate cylinder. Offset printing is used for the production of such printing materials as paper packaging, labels, magazines and catalogs, calendars, and business cards.
26. What is pad printing?
Pad printing is one of the techniques of gravure printing. In this case, the paint is transferred to the material with a special soft stamp called a tampon. The possibility of using different shapes of tampons means that prints can be placed on uneven and irregular surfaces.
27. What is DTF printing?
DTF technology is a fast and economical printing solution that allows you to place prints on textiles. Prints made on cotton, polyester, and various mixtures are characterized by high durability and flexibility. DTF technology allows the use of multiple colors to obtain high-quality prints on products in various shapes (T-shirts, bags, or caps).
28. What is latex printing?
Latex printing is a printing technique that allows you to efficiently prepare printing projects such as wallpapers, posters, and stickers. In this case, prints can be placed on foil and various types of paper, characterized by high quality, high color saturation, resistance to UV radiation, and external conditions.
29. What is UV printing?
UV printing is a printing technique commonly used in the advertising industry, which allows you to place prints on flat surfaces. UV printing is most often used to prepare various types of prints and advertising signs for trade fairs and other events.
30. What is better screen printing or digital printing?
Screen printing and digital printing are printing techniques that are used to apply prints to clothing. The features of both technologies become important depending on the specifics of the order. Although digital printing is a more modern technology that ensures high efficiency, screen printing guarantees greater durability of the prints. The decision to choose the printing technique should also depend on the size of the order. For smaller orders, it is worth choosing economical digital printing. However, if your order is larger, screen printing is likely to work better.
31. What is the difference between digital and offset printing?
Both digital and offset printing allow you to prepare marketing materials. The main advantage of the digital printing technique is its high efficiency. It is a technology that works well in the production of wallpapers, posters, stickers, and catalogs, even in small amounts. When it comes to offset printing, the process of preparing a file is slightly longer, which is associated with higher costs. In the case of larger orders, the situation changes. Unlike the offset technique, digital printing allows you to modify elements of the graphic design even on single printouts. Offset printing, on the other hand, provides a higher quality of prints.
