Top picks for the arts

With over 40'000 products in our catalogue, it can be quite a daunting task finding the right one for you. In our new blog series, we want to give a helping hand, by showcasing some of our top picks for different industries, and hopefully help point you in the right direction!

We're kicking off this new series with our Top picks for the Arts Industry. From theatres to dance schools, publishing firms to TV & Film companies, the Arts cover quite a wide variety of people and roles, so we've broken things down a bit into different sections, and provided our top 3 product ideas, which we hope will offer some inspiration. 


Front of House:

1, Programmes - We all know what a programme is, and that for any kind of show, they are a necessity, so it's no wonder they are one of our top picks. We like to jazz up our programmes and make them a bit different (ever thought of adding glitter? Or UV, Gold Foil or added Textures?), to help you really stand out from the crowd in the best possible way.

2. Bespoke Gifts - From shaped memorabilia to confectionery, there's nothing quite like a gift that is completely bespoke for your show. Take the stress Genie Lamp for example - perfect for Aladdin wouldn't you say - the options are truly endless!

3. Membership and Loyalty Cards - It's always nice to give a little something back to our customers, and these lovely little card holders are a fantastic way to do just that whilst kepping your name on the top of people's tongues,

Cast:

There was so much choice for cast members, we couldn't narrow it done to just 3 products, so we've split it into two parts instead!

Cast Pt 1:

1. Salad Set - When you are working long and arguably 'unsociable' hours, it sometimes be hard to find time to eat. This salad container is perfect for those on go, so is definitely in our top picks for Cast members. Featuring a fork and separate container for dressings, it has everything you need for a quick bite.

2. Infuser Water Bottle - It's important to stay hydrated, and these infuser bottles are ideal for adding a touch of flavour to your high intensity rehearsals.

3. Fitness Set - Being a performer is a tough gig, and it's important to stay physically fit, which is why this 5 piece kit is a perfect fit. Includes: jump rope, resistance band, expander and two hand grips.

Extra:3-in-1 Pen

Leaving it at just 3 products was a bit difficult again, so here is one extra for Cast members that we really love!

3-in-1 Pen: A pen, stylus and USB all in one tool, and perfect for those on the move and in a rush! This is one pen you won't want to lose!


Showcases and Exhibitions:

While showcases and exhibitions would largely require similar types of products and marketing, here we offer some different options for each, to highlight the wide range of items we can offer (and only partly to get round trying to narrow it down to just 3!)

Showcase:

1. Drawstring Bags - Great for personal use and giveaways, these vibrant bags are a fantastic way to bring attention to your brand and message. With Full colour print, and seam to seam coverage, these bags offer the maximim branding space possible.

3. Wristbands - We have a huge range of different wristbands, from silicone to fabric, glow in the dark or segmented colours. These can be embossed, debossed, printed or colour infilled. Fabric wristbands are also a fantastic option for festivals/security purposes.

Exhibitions:

1. Tablecloth - With a huge advertising space, a branded tablecloth is a must
