The Best Way to Use Virtual Samples. Ever.

 
Last week we announced that Promo Marketing has incorporated Technologo's virtual sampling technology into our free product search. Everyone here's been very excited about it, and no one more so than me. It's a big deal for a number of reasons. Yes, it's the fastest and easiest virtual sampling tool available. And yes, it can seamlessly remove logos from images. And yes, it offers numerous decoration options. And yes, as with our entire search engine, it's completely free and usable on the more than 300,000 items available. But none of that is why I'm excited.

This is why.
Yes, that's right. After all these years of hoping and dreaming, I give to you... LOGOFACE™.

Thanks to Technologo, now you too can have the pleasure of seeing my face every morning when you're having your morning drink. And before you ask, yes, we make LOGOFACE™ drinkware for every member of your family.

But that's not all. Because Technologo's software allows you to select varying decoration types, we're able to print my mug on more than your mug.

Like embroidered patches. I fully expect to be able to buy a Porche once this catches on.


Need a pen? No problem. Technologo's allows you to create virtual samples of my face as a laser engraving. But what if you want to have text on your virtual sample? Don't worry, we've got you covered.


I've literally wasted hours of working time the past week messing around with this tool. You could even use it for purposes other than putting my face on products, like creating samples to mail to prospective clients. I'm not sure why those prospective clients wouldn't want my face on something, but it's a strange world.

If you're reading this, you probably have a PromoMarketing.com account, which means you're ready to start creating free virtual samples. Search for any product on our site, click the green "Virtual Sample" button on the right, and before you know it you'll be sending proposals with customized images to all your clients.

Oh, and I've found one more amazing use for this tool:


Yeah, do you see how tan and jacked I am now? I've been working out.


 This is my new Facebook profile pic.


Uh... listen, I wanted to see how I'd look with long hair. Don't make this weird.
