Promoting The Blob with t-shirts

The t-shirts provided by newsXpress for promoting The Blob have been a hit across our retail network. newsXpress team members love them. They tell us that the choice of yellow was a masterstroke as it cuts through the visually bold array of colours in a newsagency.

The latest fashion shoot is from newsXpress Salamander Bay where two stars of the runway donned their t-shirt for The Blob to show off this exclusive to newsXpress product.

Everyone smiles when they hear about and use The Blob.

This is a fun product for all ages.

Colourful watering cans brighten the shop

Purchased at the Melbourne gift fair, these colourful and funky watering ‘cans’ from one of our preferred suppliers are selling very well at newsXpress Inverloch in Victoria. They make a great display in-store, especially when displayed near gardening magazines – hitting the same market.

Kudos to Warrick Hosking at newsXpress Gympie

Thanks to Warrick’s innovation, more newsXpress members are chasing impulse business at their EFTPOS terminal.
