By now, you have probably heard of custom Popsockets™ and may have even used them to promote your brand. In case you have not come across this trendy, highly popular phone grip and stand, personalized Popsockets™ are circular, collapsible tech grips or stands that are traditionally used on the backs of mobile phones and other devices. The strong yet removable adhesive on the back of each grip allows it to easily and securely attach to almost any device. They can be used to get a better grip on your gadgets, to prop your phone up on a table, or even to mount your device nearly anywhere. Their universal usefulness and affordability make Popsockets™ a highly sought after promotional item for schools, fundraising, and much more.

What everyone might not know, however, is that promotional Popsockets™ have several other clever uses as well. Check out our list of ideas below. Suggest them to your giveaway recipients or try them for yourself.

  1. Stick a standard printed Popsockets™ grip to the back of your phone or tablet for an easy way to securely carry it or prop it up.
