IPCPR 2019: Visol Products

Null

Plano, Texas-based Visol Products was featuring a number of new products at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show including cases, cutters, lighters ashtrays and humidors. According to spokesperson Gaurang Patel, the company is doing quite well, especially with the custom printing and engraving on products that it introduced in 2017, which is helping to get Visol’s name out to retailers who are looking for an affordable option with low minimum orders.

While the releases may change every year, Visol’s booth has remained the same since at least 2016, basically a large square with all of the products in glass cases that make up the exterior of the space. One thing I noticed right off the bat was that the company was once again showing off Porche products, which I was told were now once again being distributed exclusively by Visol.

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.
