Null

Plano, Texas-based Visol Products always brings a plethora of new products to the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, and this year was no different. In addition to new ashtrays, new lighters and new cases, Visol was also showing off some new Porsche Design products after wining the exclusive distribution rights in the U.S.A.

Another interesting note is the fact that Visol is now offering custom printing and engraving on almost any item they sell with only a 25 product minimum order, a fact that I overhead a number of both retailers and manufacturers point out as something they would be taking advantage of.

A big part of this year’s showings for Visol was new ashtrays, and the company is now offering seven different crystal ashtrays in multiple configurations with MSRPs ranging from $45 to $75, depending on size.

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
