Favourite Promotional Products

Branded Rock Candy. There is something innately ingenious about a branded product that you can also eat. They are visually intriguing and gastronomically delicious.

Multi-Tool. How man built Rome prior to the invention of a multi-tool is a genuine marvel. In modern times no handyman is complete without a multi-tool stashed in a convenient place and ready for action for any number of a myriad of taks.

Favourite Quote

“Every day in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better be running.” - Abe Gubegna, Ethiopian author & journalist
