A Deeper Connection

Not all custom beverage insulators (coolies) are created equal!
Custom coolies come in all kinds of forms and materials, but at the end of the day, neoprene is a material that rises above the rest.
What is neoprene & why is it great for a branded beverage insulator?
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that you'd probably recognize from wetsuit construction. But did you also know it offers superior coolie insulation? Nothing this affordable keeps beverages colder for longer in hot temps (or hot beverages in cold temps, for that matter). It's also highly flexible and durable, meaning it’ll stand up to continuous use. The material easily stretches and molds to bottles, cans, or cups making it fit like a glove around their favorite beverage.
It's All in the Details!
Did we have you at fits like a glove? If not, here are 5 key benefits of custom branded can coolers:
- Custom beverage insulators keep promoting all year around. They serve as hand warmers in the winter and keep your beverages cold in the summer.
- They’re ultra-affordable and won't break the bank.
- They are reusable! When they get a little dirty from the day-to-day grind, give them a quick wash and they are as good as new.
- Branded neoprene can coolers get used! Customers love them so much they carry them in their purse, car, boat, golf or gym bag. Some people probably even have dedicated coolie drawers in their kitchens and match them to their outfits!
- The branding capabilities are endless. From full color sublimation to fancy features like adding a magnet, a flashlight, or a cute business card pocket, we have a branded coolie option for you!.
Branded beverage insulators are a slam dunk promo product, but you can take it to the next level with neoprene! Need a custom printed product that’ll fit your promo campaign like a glove? Look no further! Contact Red Canoe Promotions Denver today and we'll help you create the perfect branded can cooler.

Most students are currently enjoying some well-deserved time off, but they’ll be returning to the classroom before you know it. And as August draws closer, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school season. One big opportunity you can take advantage of right now: branded back-to-school kits. They’re a great way to set students up for a successful year, and we’ve got five must-have items every kit should contain.
A Stylish Branded Backpack
Every student needs one. Whether they’re carrying their books to class or packing clothes for a weekend away, you can be sure they’ll use it every day.
Our Top Pick: Trek 15” Computer Backpack
Proof that style and quality don’t have to break the budget. The Trek features a large, zippered U-shaped opening and a 15” laptop sleeve. It also includes a padded back and adjustable straps for comfy carrying.
Notebooks Are Popular Again
Taking notes by hand is linked to improved memory and retention of the subject matter (Sage). That’s why it’s important for every student to have a notebook and a pen handy in the classroom. Add your custom logo for the perfect branding opportunity.
Our Top Pick: 5.5” x 8.5” Ambassador Bound JournalBook
A hard-bound branded notebook with built-in, color-matched elastic closure and an expandable accordion pocket for storing small items. It includes 80 sheets of cream lined paper and is available in 11 colors.
Can’t Miss With Branded Drinkware
Drinking straight from the fountain is a thing of the past. In the new normal, almost everyone brings their drinks from home, so an insulated drinkware piece will be put to good use.
Our Top Pick: Thor Copper Vacuum Insulated Bottle
Copper vacuum insulation keeps drinks cold for 48 hours or hot for 12. The spill-resistant lid comes with a hand loop for carrying, and the wide opening makes it easy to fill or add ice cubes. The double-wall construction prevents condensation, and the on-trend powder-spray finish makes it extra durable.
Cozy Fleece All Day
Comfort is key when it comes to students’ wardrobe choices. That’s why a super-soft fleece hoody makes a great addition to any back-to-school kit. Decorate it with their school’s emblem and let them show off that school spirit.
Our Top Pick: Cypress Fleece Zip Hoody
Let’s Do Lunch
Bringing food from home is the new normal, so a branded lunch box is a no-brainer. Add this branded retro tin lunch box to your kit for a gift they’ll use all the time.
Our Top Pick: Throwback Tin Lunch Box

People dedicate huge chunks of their lives to their work, so it's important to let them know it's appreciated. After all, companies with happier, more engaged employees tend to be more profitable – and have lower turnover – than companies with weak corporate cultures (Achievers.com). Considering the average cost of a new hire is $4,129 (SHRM.org), it's a no-brainer to invest a little extra in keeping the team happy, and recognizing work anniversaries with branded merch is a great way to do just that.
