Gift Shop Plus Summer 2021
The Name Game By Debbie Eisele

Customized merchandise on a roll

As the retail marketplace evolves, consumers have voiced a desire for products that help them connect to places, favorite activities, past times and other memorable experiences.

DEMDACO is introducing the Make It Yours line, a new approach for its Destinations’ category. This line will enable retailers to customize a large selection of high-quality merchandise with personalized phrases and names, which are crafted specifically for individual markets and customers in DEMDACO’s USA facility — allowing for prompt delivery.

“The Destinations Make It Yours product selection features over 1,500 items of top-selling art and product types, enabling our retail accounts to add local flair to regional aesthetic product offerings best suited to their location – for no additional cost,” shared Kern Stevenson, director of business development for DEMDACO.

Souvenirs, like custom merchandise, are consistently being sought after, as shoppers like to purchase a reminder of an experience and this category can provide quick sales for retailers.
