Best 2019 Swag: Cell Phone Signal Blocking Cases

Remember when we took a deep dive into the world of RFID-blocking promotional products to determine that they are really only useful in certain situations like helping to block data on employee i.d. Badges or possibly for your passport (but that’s a stretch!)?

Well, we’re back with an update that includes a really cool promotional product that incorporates the same RFID-blocking technology as all those trendy wallets, but geared toward much more than keeping your identity safe, this cool swag is a stellar safety giveaway item for your 2019 trade shows.  

RFID-Blocking with Purpose

The Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag could be a literal life saver. Made with the same RFID shield inner lining that a lot of the wallets, bags, and passport sleeves have, the Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag totally blocks cellular, WiFi, and Bluetooth signals, which means all incoming calls, messages, and alerts will not be received when your phone is sealed in the bag. This physical barrier means you’re less distracted by all the dings, whistles, and vibrations, so you’re checking your phone less, keeping your eyes where they should be: on the road.


According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, nine people die every day as a result of distracted driving, which is also the cause of 58% of car crashes where teens are involved. And, here’s a really sobering piece of information: “Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.” How many of us are guilty of that? It only takes one look, and your life and those around you could be changed forever.  

It’s no wonder the Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag is being utilized by law enforcement, safety programs, city and state governments, civic organizations, and classrooms. (Teachers find the Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag is a great deterrent for kids who have smartphones in class too.)

We tested this product in-house, and it was given a thumbs up by promotional products guru, Vickie MacFadden. As the owner of PROMOrx, Vickie has seen A LOT of products that boasted certain advantages, but did not live up to the hype. The Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag is tried-and-true. According to Vickie, when her smartphone was in the bag, she did not receive a single call, message, or alert - even from those priority numbers programmed into her phone (i.e. family). All notifications came through once the phone was taken out of the bag, allowing Vickie to focus on both her driving at the time, and those messages when she got home.

The Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag fits most smartphones. (Vickie tested it with an iPhone X and an iPhone 7s Plus and it worked for both.) This is great for those who need a one-size-fits-most promo product for your next trade show. With the addition of your custom logo, it’s a great way to promote your business and gives you a boost of confidence to know you’re sharing a product that could contribute to saving lives. These would make thoughtful employee or client gifts, and could be used as fundraisers for a community or civic group.

To sum it up: The Cell Phone Signal Blocking Bag should be in your marketing budget for 2019. For other 2019 promo marketing trends, read 6 Trends for 2019 to BOOST Your Company Swag to the Next Level
