Deck the halls (and the aisles) with holiday Lamas

This year’s holiday season promises to be a big one. According to Retail TouchPoints, on average, 60% of retailers surveyed project between 11 and 21% higher year-over-year revenue for the 2013 shopping season. That means it’s critical to get in the stores and stand out in the aisles!

Your promotional ideas, holiday themed messaging, or unique seasonal products will be sure to get the attention of shoppers. Trumari can design holiday-themed Lamas (like this Christmas Tree Lama) or brighten up any Lama design concept with festive colors, striking extensions and other custom touches. It’s a crowded retail world during the holidays, but Lamas will be the gifts that keep on giving — and adding to your bottom line.


Absolut Vodka scares up Halloween sales

Absolut Vodka designed a column Lama featuring a pirate’s plunder of flavored vodkas to greet shoppers stocking up for Halloween parties.

Die-cutting the header on this column creates a drop-dead gorgeous seasonal display that stands up and stands out in a busy retail environment.

We’ll work with you to bring your promotional display alive – call us.


The Nikon Riflescope Lama bags yet another trophy

We’re very proud that our Nikon Riflescope Lama won another award! This time, it received honors at the 2013 Gold Ink Awards, ( the printing industry’s most prestigious competition.

A close look reveals – in more ways than one – why this Lama’s a winner. Using the Lama’s unique hollow structure, a clear window insert on the front simulates the scope view while the target appears in the back panel. The result? An engaging product demonstration that only requires a few seconds of setup time.

We’ll help you design a winning Lama display that touts your product benefits up close for all your customers to see.



Naturally, Lamas are a big hit at the Natural Products Expo

Customers who prefer natural foods and other organic products appreciate companies that take a sustainable approach to business. So when Trumari showed off our Lamas at the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore last month, they were a huge hit with the attendees.

Lamas are produced sustainably with 100% recyclable materials, and most can be shipped in a container roughly the size of an extra large pizza box. So brands can make a splash at retail while keeping a smaller carbon footprint because of the Lama’s light and compact structure.
