We are delighted to present our 2013/14 Corporate Gifts, Clothing & Caps Catalogue
Our catalogues began life as a concept in August 2012. After 9 months of nurturing we are extremely proud to announce the birth of our best-ever production
Given the sizable increase in our collection, this year we adopted a new approach and instead of presenting one combined catalogue featuring gifts, clothing and caps we have produced a standalone Gifts Catalogue and a standalone Clothing and Caps Catalogue.
For the past year, our sourcing and marketing team has been travelling the world tracking the latest trends, keeping abreast of new ideas and putting together a spectacular range of fresh, innovative and desirable clothing that is sure to wow both you and your clients.
With many new styles, a new brand and an expansion of certain categories, we believe that we have created an offering to cater for all of your Corporate Gifts and Clothing requirements.
With our large stock holding and fantastic colour selection allied to the convenience and cost saving of in-house branding, Amrod is the smart choice as your Corporate Gifts and Clothing Partner.
Whilst it is important to introduce new products every year, our overriding requirement to ensure that we supply you with good quality items at a fair price, is never forgotten.
Amrod is - and always has been - associated with quality products you can trust and be proud to offer your clients, and this continues to be of fundamental importance to us.
We spend vast amounts of money to ensure that Quality Control is performed at the factory on all the manufactured products we ship and then once more once the goods reach our warehouse.
Our local QC team ensures that the goods pass our stringent controls before they are made available to our clients. This effort is there to ensure that you have the confidence and trust to sell our products repeatedly.
Our largest categories, Bags, Writing Instruments, Drinkware, Notebooks and Coolers have been loaded with substantial new product ideas.
Additionally, as we notice technology – and specifically iPad/ tablet-related products – becoming increasingly popular in retail, we feel that they will become hot products in the corporate world and therefore have launched an outstanding new collection under these categories. Look out for the multiple stylus pens as well as the new solar chargers and speakers we have on offer.
In 2008, we launched our clothing collection with our US BASIC and Slazenger Brands.
In 2012, we launched Biz Collection, Gary Player Collection and Cutter & Buck.
This year, in addition to expanding each of the above brands, we have launched ELEVATE, a Canadian collection of some of the finest jackets, golf shirts and lounge shirts around.
With a host of internationally recognised brands where the hallmarks are on-trend-design, high quality and competitive pricing, our sought-after brands are becoming household names in the South African Corporate Clothing arena.
In 2012, we launched our ELLEVEN collection of technical and high quality bags, folders and pens. This collection exceeded our most optimistic sales expectations and therefore we have doubled the range.
MARKSMAN is introduced in a strong and decisive way this year with 8 sophisticated, elegantly-presented new pens, memory sticks, notebooks and umbrellas.
Our XD DESIGN collection is truly stunning and has more than tripled in size. Look out for the beautiful boxes these items are supplied in as well as the unique and interesting designs of the products themselves.
AMROD’s IN-HOUSE BRANDING FACILITY
5 years ago, Amrod pioneered in-house branding in South Africa on a scale not seen before. By monitoring international branding best practices, we have been able to build our in-house facility to cover all branding options, namely pad printing, screen printing, laser engraving, digital printing, digital transfer printing, embroidery, sublimation and debossing.
The convenience and cost saving of in-house branding for our promotional resellers has resulted in it being standard practice for most clients to simply brand their AMROD products with us.
As a result, we continue to purchase new machines, employ and train more people and introduce new branding options.
