3d printed custom promo products

If you’ve ever searched for fresh, unique, or useful promotional products to giveaway at an event, you’ve probably seen plenty of 2D corporate logos printed on t-shirts and pens. Maybe you’ve considered that your target audience has already seen plenty of these, too. Maybe the irony of boilerplate “custom” products isn’t lost on you — maybe you’re ready to make a lasting impression at your next event with hyper-custom 3D swag.

Everything we make at Voodoo Manufacturing is 100% unique, which means 100% never-before-seen. With a Voodoo-made product, you’re guaranteed to leave an authentic, lasting impression of your brand, service, or event. But don’t just take our word for it – according to a study by BPMA and PPAI:

  • 87% of people hold onto promotional products for longer than one year.
  • 79% of promo product recipients are likely to do business with the advertised brand again.
  • Giving away promo items is six times more effective in generating referrals than other marketing methods.

With that in mind, allow us to introduce your new favorite (but not even slightly real) music brand, Elephant Entertainment. We’ve created a myriad of promo products for this fake company to serve as inspiration for your own very real brand. We invite you to put yourself in Elephant Entertainment’s shoes and imagine even more exciting possibilities for your own brand or events.
