Do you often find your earbuds or headphones in a tangled mess? I can not stand it when I find my earbuds in a tangled knotted mess. I have tried many earbuds that say they are made of tangle free material but nothing even comes close to the design of the zipper cord on the custom zipper earbuds.

I have never seen any earbuds like the custom zipper buds.  These earphones are unique because the cord is made of a flexible zipper. This unique zipper feature keeps them tangle free because they are made just like a traditional zipper.  All you do is unzip them to use and then when you are done you simply zip them up to store them.

Spring, It's Here

Written on March 18, 2013 by

Custom Potted Plant It took a few minutes of intense blinking and head shaking for my coworkers here at the Gorilla office to recalibrate and regain their vision. Some continued to complain throughout the day of lingering spots in their peripheral vision, but it was worth it. Yesterday I wore shorts.

The notion occurred to me on my way home the afternoon prior. A wall of orange blossom scent slammed into my little hatchback and seeped in through my car's ventilation system. I rolled down my window and let the wafting aroma guide me to a side street downtown where I parked. There, clustered together as if holding court stood these massive gods of flora towering above me. Dark green leaves served as the undercoat to a blanketed swarm of buttery-white blossoms that appeared to emit a glow of particulate. I was immediately struck dumb with awe, and within two minutes struck dumber with allergies. Clutching my nasal bridge, I scurried back to the recycled air flow of my car and fled home.

Hanging Wall CalendarWith the rise of the smart phone, nearly everyone has a built-in calendar shoved in their pocket or buried in their purse. That said, I type this within mere inches of a hanging wall calendar, replete with hand-written appointments scratched out and penned over with alterations. And I know I'm not alone. The wall calendar remains ubiquitous and with it the opportunity to hang your logo and brand in plain sight for 365 days (sometimes even 366!).

Promo BeanieA good marketing tactic is to coordinate your promotional products with the seasons. Well winter is upon us and as the weather outside gets frightful, it's time to help your customers bundle up. What's the first item that comes to mind when trying to keep the warmth in? Usually it's a blanket or a sweatshirt. But we are certainly budget-conscious like many of our customers, so it's possible a fleece blanket or embroidered sweat shirt may not be in your price range.  This doesn't mean you can't keep with the trends and find a Winter-friendly promotional product. While statistics may vary depending on the source, there is no denying that we do lose a percentage of heat from our head. A warm beanie cap, as it is usually referred to, is a great product that can keep your customers warm.
