Last week, Team Bulletin Bag was all business (see left) as we headed to the industry’s largest trade show in Las Vegas. We were on the lookout for new bottles that our clients (you!) might like.
So what’s new and trendy in 2016? The focus is on high-quality materials, which often leads to an even higher perceived value. Matte black finishes on both stainless steel and aluminum are hot. Odorless, dishwasher-safe Tritan copolyester is more on trend than ever before, and in some cases beat out aluminum as the material of choice! We even found a glass water bottle that’s encased in plastic, which combines maximum taste purity with durable construction.
When you’re planning marketing campaigns this year that involve custom water bottles, remember that it is most likely to get used when it features:
• Current or classic lines
• High-perceived value through weight, design, and material composition
• Appealing colors
In the coming month, we’ll be evaluating our top water bottle picks from the show. We study the costs and test out each bottle ourselves. Stay tuned to find out what makes the cut and finds a place on our site!
