Totes and the Power of Bags!

Bags are one of the most powerful and long lasting promotional products used in advertising today. Did you know that promotional bags, on average, are kept more than 7 months. That’s longer than shirts and pens! These long lasting tools generate almost twice as many impressions, over 5000, compared to the next highest promotional product. Bags offer a host of perks that can help build your brand. Get some bags for your company and build your brand!


Bags make nearly 6,000 impressions over their lifespan. Just for reference, that’s three times the number of impressions made by shirts and twice when compared to writing instruments.

Staying Power

People love free stuff and everyone knows free = better. Bags are kept for relatively long periods of time, an average of 7 months.


People love free stuff and everyone knows free = better. People consider bags useful and tend to associate the brand with the bag.

Cost Effectiveness

A bag’s cost-per-impression is extremely low, the price of the bag coupled with the number of impressions lead to impressions costing less than a cent! That’s lower than newspaper and even prime time TV.

Key Safety Certifications and Safety Testing for Power Banks



With more people than ever using smartphones and digital tablets, there’s strong demand for safe, high-quality accessories to keep them powered up. Specifically, there are three certifications that many promotional products customers are looking for – MFi, UL and ETL.

Here’s a quick look at each.

  • MFi, or Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod, is a licensing program created by Apple that allows third-party developers to manufacture hardware approved for use with iPods, iPads and iPhones. When a product carries this special certification, you know it can be trusted to work with your Apple device.
  • UL is a global independent safety-science company, and its logo is universally recognized as a symbol of quality. Products that are UL Listed have been tested and verified as meeting that company’s published standards for safety.
  • The ETL Listed Mark is issued by Intertek, another independent safety-testing company. Similar to UL Listing, the ETL Listed Mark is proof that a product has been tested and is in compliance with globally recognized safety standards.

Ultimately, though, these symbols all mean the same thing – confidence. That’s why we continue to offer products bearing the MFi, UL and ETL symbols.

Our power banks undergo rigorous testing to ensure that when in use, they function safely and perform as expected every time. They are manufactured under the industry’s most comprehensive power bank safety program, testing overall quality in three categories: Functional, Situational, and Cosmetic and Packaging.
