IPCPR 2018: Visol Products

Null

As as been the case the past few years, Plano, Texas-based Visol Products had plenty of new products to show off at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, including cases, cutters, lighters ashtrays and humidors. Gaurang Patel told me that the custom printing and engraving on products it introduced last year is going gangbusters, with a large number of both retailers and manufacturers taking advantage of the low minimum order.

The booth was basically the same as it was last year, with all of the products in glass cases arranged in a large square. Patel told me that one major change the company made this year was to put all of the new products close together so that when people came up and asked the age-old question, “So, what’s new?” they would be able to get to everything quicker and easier instead of having to hunt for them.
