Here Comes The iPad

6 Apr

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.

Whenever a product like the iPad hits the market promotional items to support the product are not far behind.

The first such item to come across my desk was the Eco Wraptop Scuba Foam Sleeve from Numo Manufacturing in Dallas, Texas. Eco Wraptop contains at least 85% post-consumer content foam, same as the very popular EcoCoolies Numo offers.

The Eco Wraptop was originally designed to fit the new generation of thin netbook computers, up to 9.7″ x 6.8″ x 1.25″, but at this size it also makes a great slip case for the new iPads. (Numo has a full line of Eco Wraptops to fit any laptop size.)

The Eco Wraptop is available in 11 colors,  Black, White, Red, Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Kelly Green, Lime Green, Bright Orange, Purple, Forest Green and Yellow. Imprint area is 4″ W x 2″ H, and is placed near the lower-right corner. EQP on these items is $7.15.

With the certain popularity of the iPad the Eco Wraptop is a great way for schools and businesses to brand an iPad without actually having to buy an iPad. The Eco Wraptop should work great in the youthful, on-the-go demographic expected of early adapters for the iPad.

Numo also is offering an item made exclusively for the iPad, the new iPad ECO RPET iPad Sleeve, which can be done as a solid unit or with beautiful full four color imprinting.

EQP on solid ECO RPET iPad Sleeve is $9.25. Full color imprint versions come in at EQP $11.92.

If you are interested in these items to promote your own business contact your local promotional items vendor or email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.
