PSI FIRST Club 2018 winners

WEB_PSI FIRST 2018The winners of this year’s PSI FIRST Club are innovative, practical and sustainable. At PSI 2018 they competed for the affection of promotional products distributors and marketing executives as three of the altogether 50 new products at the show.

Trade show visitors cast their vote to decide which products they would deploy as part of a campaign. The three winning products are:

The Orga-Flash Note won the first price. It literally puts haptic and digital features side by side. Vim Solution’s winning product combines USB stick and sticky note. All the surfaces of the binder and the integrated USB stick can be custom-finished. “Already at the trade show, we – because of the great interest in this product – had a very good feeling”, says Bastian Scheil, managing director of Vim Solution.

WEB_JUNG_mueslibecher_Quelle JUNG BonbonfabrikSecond place: Biodegradable Muesli Cup
Jung Bonbonfabrik bet on sustainability with their submission, which earned them a second-place finish. The idea: a high-quality and sustainable muesli cup. Made from brown cardboard, it’s manufactured without the use of pesticides or fertilisers from rapidly regenerating and renewable resources. For that reason, the cup is 100 per cent biodegradable. Turning it into a promotional product is a custom-printable advertising insert with plenty of space for the advertising message.

At first glance, it’s simply a carrying bag. But upon closer inspection the bag turns out to be a biodegradable organic bag. Samoa Regenponcho offers an eco-friendly, resource-saving alternative with their carrying bags made from maize flour (aka cornstarch). Thanks to a wide range of finishing options, the BIO Loop Handle Bag becomes a sustainable advertising messenger
