Welcome to SwervePoint. We're serving up style, selection, service and quality – every day. And we really love what we do! We understand there are a lot of choices when it comes to selecting a brand partner and we want to thank you for choosing SwervePoint. We promise to continue to provide you with the very best in style, selection, service and quality and to help you tangify your brand every step of the way. Tangify? What’s that you ask? Truth be told, we made up the word Tangify and created a definition and everything, and it stuck so we’re running with it. We’ll probably make t-shirts, and cool bags for people to tote things around in and make balloons and have a party and people will ask our people where they got the cool merchandise and what Tangify means and what SwervePoint does and there you have it… that’s what Tangifying is. Our formal, made up definition is:

Tangify – the act or manner of enhancing the tangibility of a brand.

At SwervePoint, we help our clients connect their brands with people on a personal and tangible level through the creation of branded merchandise and promotional solutions and we have a lot of fun doing it. Before you start turning the pages of the Fresh Book let us take a moment to point out a few things in this issue: we’ve put together a high-quality assortment of Eco-products starting on page 3 that will help you support your corporate sustainability initiatives and environmental efforts. We’re also promoting on page 29, our On-site Retail Experience service that has been wildly popular. Lastly, check out our tradeshow tricks of the trade sidebar on page 40. There are a lot of great ideas inside the pages of the Fresh Book and this is just a starting point, a thought provoker if you will. So take a look and give us a call, we’d love to start tangifying your brand.

PICTURED: We tangify our own brand with fresh, fun, and functional products. Simple and impactful messaging gets our point across. Let us do it for you. Call 877-793-7838 to get started!

Here’s some Fine Print Stuff we need to make you aware of: we have two types of item numbers. The first starts with an FB and the second, an RS. The FB indicates that this product is a core item and is readily available in our supply chain. The RS indicates that this product is a Rock Star and like a real Rock Star they’re sometimes a little temperamental and difficult to work with. RS products are from our specialty retail supply chain where availability is affected by seasonality, so when we sell through these products it’s sometimes very difficult to re-stock them. We hope you’ll understand. Call us if you have any questions. 1 | fresh book

Tradeshows We get asked all the time “what do you have that’s cool and unique for under $5?” It’s kind of a loaded question – many times people are looking for a magic bullet to drive engagement at their tradeshow display and mistakenly think a widget is the answer. While we’ve seen a lot of great gizmos in our day, what really makes them effective is how they are tied into your overall brand, product, and service message. There are some tried and true tricks of the trade that we employ for ourselves that can work for you as well. things to consider:

• Get a gimmick. Come up with an angle or schtick that will attract attention. Be careful with this though. You have to be authentic to who you are. Nobody wants a circus sideshow or used car salesman pitch.

• Introduce color. Your brand guidelines may be very strict and boring but lets face it, people prefer color. Go talk to your brand people and ask their permission to step off the path with their guidance.

• Identify moments of truth. What are CALL US to get started! 877-793-7838
