The Aakron Line Smells

22 Mar

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of Proforma Green Marketing, an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

Aarkron Line is known for innovative ideas like their color changing S.A.F.E plastic Mood Cups.

Well it seems in 2010 Aarkron is sticking with the innovative way of thinking to produce a new line of non-woven polypropylene totes called Scent-Sational Bags in Cinnamon, Fresh ‘n Clean, Coffee and Coconut-Lime.

As I mentioned when writing about the Smelly Pen from All-in-One, scent is a very strong trigger for sales and attention. Think about the old realtor trick of fresh baked cookies (or pie scented candles)  on display during open house events. Also as scented items are still newish to the industry they can help you create a buzz at your tradeshow booth or event.

The Scent-Sational Scented Non-Woven Small Tote Bag from Aakron line measures in at 9″ W x 10″ H, with a 5″ gusset. The imprint area is 6″ W x 6″ H per side, and Aakron offers both spot color ($1.20 EQP) and Full Color Digital ($2.70 EQP) imprinting on these bags.

The larger Scent-Sational Scented Non-Woven Large Tote Bag measures in at 12″ W x 14″ H, also with a 5″ gusset, and sporting a 9″ W x 10″ H imprint area.

Again Aakron offers both spot color ($1.50 EQP) and Full Color Digital ($3.00 EQP) imprinting on these bags. Both the small and large scented bags are made from 20% recycled materials.

I think the totes would work well for farmers markets, trade shows, conferences, bookstores (thinking coffee scent here), basically any place a trade tote would work and the buyer is thinking of an upgrade to a stand out scented unit.

The last item in the line I think is particularly interesting and I think aimed directly at the  healthcare, college, school and sports crowd. It is the Scent-Sational Scented Non-Woven Laundry Bag. Great idea Aakron.

This 25″ W x 36″ H non-woven polypropylene drawstring bag has a large 12″ W x 12″ imprint area, with the option of spot color ($2.90 EQP) and Full Color Digital ($4.40 EQP). It is also made from 20% recycled materials.

The sent that Aarkon is working to associate most closely with this bag is their Fresh ‘n Clean option.
