Product Ideas

Profile Match Cards

Novelty Item With Fun, Practical Purpose




A quick and easy method to "see the light" of possible compatibility with other singles in the dating world. Answers to a personality questionnaire are recorded by punching holes in a wallet card. Cards are held together up to a light to register light patterns revealing commonality or disagreement on issues. Would be an impulse buy in singles meeting places as a fun conversation starter. Retail price less than $5.00.


Personal identification marketing vest




Addresses the need to be seen and identified in a large group or event setting. Replaces small and hard to see attendee name tags at mixers, meetings and conventions. Similar to names shown on the backs of jerseys for pro athletes, a custom wide (6") writeable label with adhesive backing will be attached to the back of the vest. Vest wearer can then advertise themselves or their company name and be seen fro a distance. Onsite event retail price less than $10.00. Facilitates networking.


Side Visor Shade Fan




Solves the problem of having to adjust the driver visor from front facing to the side as the position of the sun changes while driving.  Attached to the door frame with Velcro. The expandable fan can easily be opened to partially shade the driver's eyes but is also transparent enough to see objects beyond. Simple installation and a safety feature for less than $15.
