Relan in the News



With MINI USA running its largest-ever marketing campaign in support of the 2014 MINI Cooper Hardtop, they are doing something unique and sustainable with the billboard marketing as it comes off display. With the help of Relan, a U.S. manufacturer of repurposed billboard and banner products, MINI is repurposing the ad campaign into fashionable, re-usable totes for each new MINI owner. 

Following in the footsteps of the new MINI tagline, “The New MINI. The New Original” each one-of-a-kind tote will sport a label reading, “This bag is made from a real MINI billboard. There is no other like it. Just like you and each MINI.”
