We are excited to announce the opening of 2 new Cuffwear Express machines at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). You will find one of our high tech machines from Signifi Solutions right outside the Delta Sky Lounge near gate A17 and also at E8. We have a great selection of Cuffwear cufflinks, Power Stays and wallets from Wurkin Stiffs and some amazing ladies and men's socks form JHJ Designs.
The machines are set up to give travelers the convenience of familiar E-commerce style shopping via a large touch screen display with the immediate gratification of receiving the item on the spot, dispensed in a very premium, smooth way with each item being delivered in a gift box or gift bag.
This is a great opportunity for last minute gift ideas, convenient shopping while you wait for your flight and a great way to quickly pick up some items you may have forgot to pack.

We are excited about the expansion of our Cuffwear Express automated retail machines. 2 years ago we were introduced to Signifi Solutions, a Canadian technology company specializing in automated retail. Signifi works with some amazing companies, Home Depot, Rogers, Staples, The Source, Canada Post and many others. We launched our first test machine with Signifi for Cuffwear Express in 2014 and the results were incredible.
With the success of our first machine in a Toronto retail shopping mall (shown above), we secured a prime location in the Detroit Metropolitan Airport and launched this machine in January of this year. (shown below)
In addition to a wide selection of Cuffwear cufflinks, we are excited to offer Wurkin Stiffs' patented magnetic collar stays, amazing RFID protected wallets and their new microfibre pocket squares. We also carry fun and stylish socks form JHJ Designs.
It is quite an amazing experience, each product is dispensed via a robotic cart in full view of the customer and is delivered already packaged in a gift bag. This innovative concept combines the ease and familiarity with e-commerce style shopping along with the immediate gratification of instant delivery. We are excited to be launching two new Cuffwear Express machines into the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International airport, the world's busiest airport, in April.
Stay tuned for more US airport locations coming soon!
There's a lot of buzz around our cufflink vending machine in Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood. CTV News got in touch:
Cuffwear president Chris Zownir says the high-tech, touchscreen-enabled vending machines are a "fun user experience," and far more advanced than the typical candy bar dispenser.
"The machine is made in Italy, it's a very sexy-looking machine, and so I think people are just drawn over by the appearance of it," Zownir told CTVNews.ca by phone on Wednesday.
The Cuffwear vending machine has 42 cufflink styles on display in a purple LED-lit glass display case. Customers use a touchscreen interface to pick the cufflinks they want, then charge the purchase ($65 per pair) to their credit card. The machine uses a mechanical tray to retrieve the pre-gift-wrapped cufflinks and deposit them to the customer.
Zownir says it made a lot of sense to put cufflinks in a vending machine. The one-size-fits-all, often-changed (and easily lost) fashion accessories are a hot item among fashion-forward men.
"Guys that love wearing cufflinks, it's just an easy fit," Zownir said. He added that he's also seen many women use the vending machine to buy cufflinks as gifts for the men in their lives.
If you're not in the Toronto area, don't fret -- Cuffwear offers free ground shipping on all North American orders. Take a look at our full selection!
Cuffwear's Yorkville vending machine was featured in the National Post today:
One Riverdale woman who bought cufflinks for her husband – she did not want her name published, because it would spoil a Christmas surprise — said she noticed a lot of excitement around the two ‘‘very posh looking vending machines.’’
‘‘I couldn’t believe that you could buy doughnuts and cuff links. There was a man there who couldn’t resist buying both. I had to take a look.
‘‘Of course once I saw that they had cuff links with guitars on them I was sold. It was a totally impulsive and I honestly don’t know if they were worth the $65, but they came in a nice box and a very swish little bag. It was just lot of fun. And I resisted the doughnuts!’’
Come down to the Cumberland Terrace mall to see it in action!
