"MerchBots are like a secret weapon in the world of promotional merchandise"

"Working with MerchBots and MagiCubes for DigiCert was a great experience. The MerchBots are like a secret weapon in the world of promos. The 3D MagiCubes were a big hit on their own. Then adding the MerchBot gave the client's MagiCubes a digital life of their own, making them not just cool giveaways, but real engagement like I've never seen before. The MagiCubes featured the client's logo and brand story, but also chatting with its own digital brand ambassador. For us distributors, it’s like stepping into the future of promo products. It's exciting, innovative, and honestly, it's just really fun to see how people interact with them."

Evan McBride Brand Makers

"For any promotional campaign to be successful,..."

"People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories, and magic. For any promotional campaign to be successful, it's not just about the quality of your brand merch, but your ability to weave your brand into the lives of your target audience."

Seth Godin American author, businessman, marketer, and public speaker

"Every day we're saying, ‘How can we keep this customer happy?’ How can we get ahead in innovation by doing this because if we don’t, somebody else will."

Bill Gates Microsoft

"The key is to set realistic customer expectations, and then not just to meet them, but to exceed them – preferably in unexpected and helpful ways."

Richard Branson Virgin Group

"The playing field is poised to become a lot more competitive, and businesses that don’t deploy AI and data to help them innovate in everything they do will be at a disadvantage."
