Djeep War Games Series Replaces Freedom Lighters

Djeep, maker of high-quality disposable lighters, is now shipping War Games lighters, its newest, full-color design series featuring new combat aircraft and special operations designs with contemporary military imagery. The lighters will be available throughout the balance of 2010 and replace the Djeep Freedom Series, which has been in the market since 2003. The new designs feature a more combat-oriented color pallet and video culture graphics. “They make an adult statement, no matter who you are,” says Djeep President Scott Ivins. War Games lighters are available to retailers through distributors in 24-count upright and three-tier 36-count disposable displays. Djeep lighters provide up to 4,000 lights and are available in more than 10 different styles including full color graphics and soft leather surfaces. All Djeep display shippers are D.O.T. Hazmat-approved.
