The Electronic cigarette (e-cig) industry has spawned a lucrative e-cig accessories market. Like most other fashion accessories, e-cig brands and retailers, promote the accessories as an opportunity for individuals to emphasize their personal taste and freedom. Accessories being sold include carriers for e-cigs including handbags, pouches, and lanyards; crystals stickers for the metallic body of the e-cig; removable wrapper covers in a range of designs from the ever popular Hello Kitty to the more obscure image of multi-colored Geckos; and decorative drip tips for Advanced Personalized Vapor devices.
Some e-cig companies such as Vapor Couture and White Cloud sell a number of branded accessories including crystal tips, lanyards, handbags, and even promote them as “necessary,” “everyday” fashion items through online boards such as Pinterest. In promotions, targeted specifically to women through Facebook and Pinterest, the two brands have even created a fashion board that puts together different kinds of dresses, shoes, and of course e-cig accessories and e-cigs.
While many companies sell an array of e-cig accessories, Vapor Jacket exclusively markets adhesive-backed e-cig wrappers. The site provides instructions to users on how they can use the product. Wrapper themes range from religious to sexy to plain.
