The Good: Lots of useful extras, compact size, large imprint area.
The Bad: Only three colors available, plastic case only, does not secure
The Bottom Line: The customized Tropical Travel Kit is an easily distributed promotional product that a heavy hitter despite its light weight!
Design (8.6/10): (top)
The customized Tropical Travel Kit is made entirely from plastic, measuring approximately 5-1/4” x 4” when laid flat, with slots that are approximately 2-1/4” x 3-3/4” each. The slots can be ripped out with some effort, but it is unlikely this would happen on accident. The item comes with the sewing/medical supplies distributed evenly between the two slots. However, items can all easily fit into one side, so your business cards, coupons, and other information can be inserted into the other side. This flexibility makes this item into a useful tool for personal promotion and can be easily given away at trade shows, grand openings, and conventions. The imprint is solid, but there is some distortion on very fine details. Although the lotions and pills can be used once, the sewing kit and plastic packet will stay in purses, briefcases, cars, and tackle boxes for a while.
Features (8.8/10): (top)
The personalized Tropical Travel Kit includes a wide array of extras that are incredibly useful for everyone, especially frequent travelers. Items include: 2 adhesive bandages, 2 packets of SPF-15 sunscreen (PABA-free), 1 moist towelette, 1 packet (2 tablets) antacid, 1 packet (2 tablets) pain relievers, 1 packet of hand / body lotion, and 1 sewing kit (red, green, navy, royal, pink, cream, gray, white, black thread; needle; 2 pearl buttons; safety pins). There are only three colors available for the packaging – translucent green, translucent red, and translucent blue – but they’re versatile colors that can be combined with fun imprint colors to make a great final product (4 color imprint maximum). The only other thing that would improve this item is a key ring attachment.
Price (9/10): (top)
The custom printed Tropical Travel Kit is an inexpensive way to create brand impressions. The additional items inside each kit will draw many more customers than an empty case, although the case will be kept beyond the use of the items. Single business card holders without any extras cost at least as much as the Tropical Travel Kit with all its extras, so it’s definitely worth the investment.
Overall, the personalized Tropical Travel Kit is an excellent way to get in touch with your potential clients without having to break the bank. Lightweight, slim, and packed with promotional power, this item is fantastic for almost every industry and demographic. With some shuffling around, you can even include your own business card on one side, so you can promote yourself as well as your company. Larger companies can place big orders for big discounts and distribute these to their employees for further marketing. Although several of the items are one-time use, there are a few in there that make holding onto the personalized Tropical Travel Kit an excellent long-term marketing choice when you’re short on funds. This item is especially recommended for travel agencies, frequent flier clubs, airlines, and hotels.
