We see a whole lot of boring "me too" type items every day, so when something truly new comes around, we love to feature it. This is a doctor or nurse tote made to look like a lab coat with stethoscope, and we personalize the other side with your logo. Pretty sweet. Call 401-451-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We just received this mason jar water bottle info in the mail today, and it's one of the coolest upcoming drinkware items that we have seen for 2014. The one to the left doesn't have a handle, but it is pretty easily gripped.
We refer to this one as a mug but it's pretty much a mason jar water bottle with a handle. Call 401-451-1874 to order these, or get to us by email at email@example.com
Personalized bath and body kits are a great....personal way to tell your employees that they did a great job, or as an add-on for all of the luxury retreats that financial companies often attend. This particular spa kit, contained in a custom printed clear vinyl zippered bag with Euro style rope handles includes a net sponge, loofah, nail brush, shampoo, and body lotion. This is one of our more "deluxe" kits.
This spa kit is called the "Revive" because it does just that! The packaging is a translucent drawstring tote, and in it you will find:
shampoo, hand & body lotion, shower gel, net sponge, loofah, and nail brush. These are called spa kits, but they also make great higher end giveaways for anyone on the road, or to keep aside if you are hosting out-of-towners, because they will really appreciate this gift if they forgot their favorite toiletries.
We call this the "rain" kit because it's a great gift for your hardworking salespeople who have been "making it rain" all year. Ok, maybe that's not why it's called that, but we sit here writing these blogs every day and you have to let the ninjas have some fun now and then. Call 401-451-1874 to order these great kits, they include a clear mini tote filled with hand & body lotion, nylon sponge, and loofah.
This set is one of our more modestly priced bath and body sets, but is still packed with features. We also like the packaging on this one more than the others, but that's just personal preference combined with our obsession with carabiners.
This kit includes: mini vinyl tote, nail brush, loofah pad, and candle.
If you see something you like, as always we are happy to help. Call us at 401-451-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing on your specific project or for sample requests.
Once in a while we do some promotional work for a local tech company that provides the best cell phone cases, laptop cases, and sports padding on the market. The company is full of young creative types, as you'd expect, and they tend to be involved in cool events-- so instead of a normal office holiday party, they chose to have a pizza making competition. And, as you have probably gleaned from the title, we were lucky enough to provide their custom screen printed aprons. Check out the pics, it looks like they had a heck of a time! (and then call 401-451-1874 to order your custom printed aprons)
What if we told you that there was a multi function hat with all over printing that could be used as a hair cover, baclava, rally towel, beanie hat, headband, facemask, and neck warmer? About an hour ago, I'd have called you crazy and said that there was no such thing! This Yowie item is sure to win some promotional products awards in 2014, and we're among the first to be offering it, complete with all over printing of your logo.
Much like Bic/Norwood, Sanford and their parent company Newell (Rubbermaid) are HUGE corporations and we could spend probably a year doing features on all of their different products. We decided to take a small bite by focusing on some of our favorite Sanford pens, so feel free to give us a call to order as these are all available with your company name or logo engraved/imprinted.
We featured the black light reactive neon custom logo sharpies on one of our other sites, but it fits the bill for this blog as well. We quoted 5-10k of these for a nightclub promoter a few weeks ago, and if I had a big blacklight event, this is pretty much the coolest custom marker you can get. Are you hosting a massive black light party? Invite me and I'll give you a great deal on these.
We sell custom logo Paper Mate InkJoy RT pens to a nursing home chain in Rhode Island and have never had a complaint. They offer super smooth writing, especially for the price, and look cool. There are a few different models of the InkJoy RT, so I'm not sure if it was the 300 series over to the left, but this girl looks pretty happy with it so we decided to use that one as the pic.
There's nothing worse than getting a highlighter as a promo gift and the first time you use it, it's all spongy and draggy, like someone left the cap off, but they would have had to have done that at the factory, because the item is brand new.
Well, you don't get issues like that with Sharpie, they actually take it in the OTHER direction and offer a smooth writing gel highlighter that doesn't smear and writes like the dickens. How much like the dickens? Well these last as long as traditional pen style highlighters, despite being a gel, which is cooler, and won't bleed through papers, no matter how thin. Call us today.
Waterman claims the Exception to be their new flagship pen, and we are inclined to agree, although their entire line is pretty darn luxurious. The Exception is available in 2 different barrel sizes, and you can have it in a rollerball or ballpoint. My suggestion would be to order some of both. (FYI---the rollerball only comes in the large barrel size).
The Parker Urban is a mid range gel pen that writes as well as it looks. Yes, we can engrave or print your logo on these, and they will probably enhance your image to whoever is lucky to get one of these fine writing instruments. A little known fact about the picture to the left, is that the photo shoot was in public and this fella got asked on 3 dates just from holding this fine looking pen. Ok, that's not true, but quality people know quality pens, and these could probably get you a date if you sat somewhere and made your best "deep in thought" face while holding the new Parker Urban.
What's better than great ink? How about SUPER ink? Well the Uni Ball Jetstream Sport is equipped with ink SOOOO great that it had to be named (and trademarked) as SUPER INK!
What's so super about Uni Ball's new Super Ink? It is a retractable gel rollerball that writes like a roller but doesn't smudge and smear like one. It's a hybrid because you get all of the convenience of a ballpoint pen, with the writing of a gel. These Uni Ball Jetstream Sport pens look fabulous with your logo printed on the side.
Quill Pens have been around for over 50 years, and are probably the best mid range pens you can buy. You get an extreme marketing value, because you can engrave or print the side, and the top gets a full color logo on the dome. This particular ballpoint, the 510, caught my eye because it is hard to get pens in a pastel blue like this, and these colors are making a big comeback.
We hope you enjoyed our quick blog about some of Sanford's best new stuff, contact us at 401-451-1874, email@example.com, or use the form right here.
Ceramic coffee mugs, when one considers the shelf life and overall cost, have a very high shelf life to cost ratio. People keep these things pretty much until they break. We carry a huge selection of ceramic mugs, and thought that it would be helpful to do a feature to show off some of our top 1% of ceramic coffee mug sellers. As always, to order mugs, or have us source your own special mug, contact us at 401-451-1874.
To the left is the all time best selling 11 oz. ceramic mug with your corporate logo. These are great for trade shows, conventions, as salesperson leave-behinds, and to fill with candy to make it a slightly higher end gift during the holidays. These personalized coffee mugs are akin to handing someone a t-shirt with a cool design. You just can't go wrong with the standard, and this is it.
Do you have a logo that would be better served by a more colorful background? We have many colors of 11 oz. mugs, and can put your logo on these in whatever color you like. These are exactly the same as the ones above, except in color.
If you're a chiropractor, boy do we have your number! These vertebrae handle coffee mugs are a great representation of how we can create a unique and positive impression of your company. We love selling stuff like this, because it usually ends up creating additional orders from the people that see our super original and cool customized items while out and about.
What if you prefer a ceramic mug, but you are always on the go and don't like wearing your coffee? These ceramic mugs are designed to look like the most popular travel mugs, and function as such, but they retain their ceramic nature. The lid is made of silicone and is not microwave safe, so take it off before heating up your chicken noodle soup in this fantastic mug!
What a great gift! We mentioned soup in the above paragraph, and if there's a better mug for soup, we haven't seen it. This ceramic mug comes with a spoon and has a hole so that you don't lose the spoon. Your customers will think of you the next time they are sitting down on a cold winter day with a cup of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich! Who do you think they are going to call the next time they need your services? You have a real edge when you are the one who enhanced their grilled cheese eating experience!
These are a bit more practical than the other ceramic travel mugs mentioned above because they have a grip to protect your hand from the head, and a plastic slider lid to better prevent spills. As you can see, the grip is also ribbed to provide even more security, as we know you are probably carrying a lot more than just a coffee mug as you are on your way out the door in the morning. Trust us, the ribbed grip helps.
Have you ever seen a ceramic mug with a stainless base before? These are cool looking and super useful. These mugs come in a 1 pc. gift box, and we have the ability to print on the metal or on the ceramic, your choice!
Is this a bright idea...OR IS THIS A BRIGHT IDEA?
Light bulb handle mugs are a great handout for electrical contractors, electrician's trade shows, as a handout at home shows, or for any event involving light, electricity, or the creation of new ideas.
Do you run a zoo? Do you feel like you run a zoo? Are you in a company or organization that specializes in addressing THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM? This elephant handle coffee mug might be just what you need to put a positive spin on a dire situation, so that everyone can get their heads on straight and figure out a solution.
Or...maybe you just really like animals, which is cool too. I mean...who wouldn't want one of these with your logo on it. If you hand someone a mug with an elephant as the handle, chances are you that you just handed that person their new favorite coffee mug.
Aside from t-shirts, rulers, and tape measures, which are all great promo swag gifts, this is an item that could really set yourself apart from the competition at the next home show. Order some hammer handle coffee mugs today, and hammer your competition tomorrow. Figuratively speaking.
I hardly ever participate in 5k's anymore, and I still have a drawer full of breast cancer support t-shirts. They are very nice shirts, but a coffee mug might be a great way to "mix it up" with the promo swag at the next fundraiser. You already gave them their favorite shirt, now how about their favorite...coffee mug.
These are a great coffee mug (obviously) for spine centers, chiropractors, and Spinal Tap tribute bands. Please, tell me you're not in a Spinal Tap tribute group. Actually, contact me if you are and I will click "like" on your FaceBook page.
I...suppose the triple handle coffee mug is a great marketing item if your sports team just won three victories, or if you are encouraging your coworkers to get a "handle" on the situation. But...the elephant handle mug is cooler than this...although this one would be cool for a comic con, if you play off the whole "mutant" angle. Can you tell yet that the author of this page is a total nerd? It definitely has its benefits.
We're going to wrap up this blog with the gas pump coffee mug. Obviously these are great gifts for the super duper massive oil and gas industry, but they could also be used to encourage health eating or the "fuel"-ing of new ideas and initiatives.
You probably get the idea by now that we have a ton of experience in selling custom coffee mugs. Contact us at 401-451-1874 or below, as we love to discuss this stuff.
Some of the most commonly searched terms in our industry are "cheap plastic promotional pens", "custom promotional pens", "company logo pens", "personalized plastic pens" and variants revolving around such words. One company that provides a consistent product and has been around forever because they provide quite possibly the best combination of service, price, and quality, is Bic. It can be argued that maybe they don't set the world on fire with styling, but when it comes to making a decent looking product that actually works, I often refer to Bic as the "Toyota" of the low cost pen world.
Lately, or somewhat lately because they have been doing this for a few years now, Bic has been growing their lines and offering more and more color combinations and imprint options, which I'd imagine is really helping them stay on top of the promo swag game. We decided recently to write a blog featuring some of our favorite Bic pens, and we hope you enjoy it. As alway, contact us at 401-451-1874 to order anything that you see on this site that you would like customized with your company name or corporate logo.
To the left is the Bic Clear Clic. Translucent pens look great with logos printed on the side, and with these pens you get a real quality plunger and ballpoint refill. According to Bic, that is genuine polished nickel plated trim. We'd love to see our competitors offer custom logo pens with polished nickel plated trim! Anyway, you get a lot for your money with the Bic Clear Clic, which is why it is an all time best seller, and to top it all off, Bic guarantees that these are always in stock.
Are you the type of person that needs to feel like you are helping the environment with every promotional purchase you make? Well get your dialing fingers ready and give us a call, because these right here are made from 26% plastic from a renewable resource, and are refillable. Bam. Happy Earth Day.
If someone could just write a song about twisting, they would make millions as Bic would probably be interested in it for these awesome Bic Pivo promotional twist mechanism pens. Bic guarantees the Pivo pens to always be in stock, and they offer over 100 color combinations (because you get to choose barrel AND ring color) on this particular writing instrument. Combine that with a borderline Euro-esque slim profile, and your screen printed logo on the side, and you have a real winner of a promotional pen.
Ahh the Bic Round Stic. For many of us, there was a Bic Round Stic with us in the car on the way to our first baseball game. For others, we may have spent the summer one year working on SAT Prep courses with Bic Round Stic Pens. Everyone has a memory of the Bic Round Stic if they think hard enough, even if it was in 5th grade when you disassembled one and used it to shoot spitballs across the room (wasn't me).
The Bic Round Stic pens have been around for years because they are reliable and last a long time. As we mentioned before, Bic has really pulled out all the stops when it comes to offering more colors, and they have sold even more of these great plastic promotional pens because of their foresight. Bic now offers over 400 color combinations for this iconic pen. It includes Bic's patented vented cap, and is once again, guaranteed to be in stock. Why not call us and order some of these with your company logo?
What if we told you that there was a pen with THREE SIDES? Would you be interested? What if we then told you that this three sided, triangular pen could be imprinted on ALL THREE SIDES? WHAT do you think such a customizable promotional pen would be called? We'd probably call it the....triangle pen, right? Well Bic is so cool that they abbreviated it and called it the TRI STIC, and it is a marvel to behold.
This pen has over 100 possible color combinations, and is guaranteed to always be in stock.
How could we do a Bic best sellers feature without mentioning the Bic Clic Stic Pens?
Guess how many color combinations are possible with the Bic Clic Stic promotional pens? Go ahead, guess! No idea? Well...you have the possibility of FOUR HUNDRED different combinations.
Bic guarantees this consistently hot selling writing instrument to always be in stock, and designing this bad boy to have a BREAK RESISTANT pocket clip. That's important for fidgety people like myself who are always playing with their pen clips. Bic tells us that this is LITERALLY the most popular retractable pen in the promotional products industry, which is nothing to sneeze at, as last time I checked, we were a $17 billion dollar industry.
Coming from the company who coined the name "Tri Stic"', what would you call a pen that has a highlighter at the other side? I bet you thought that they would come up with some cool abbreviation like they did with the word "triangle", but you'd be wrong. They just call this custom pen the "Two Sider", and that's all the introduction it needs because it speaks with pure writing and highlighting PERFORMANCE.
Bic's four color pens bring out the juvenile in all of us. There are four different ink colors in this one pen, and we print the side with your logo or company name in one color. The bright white barrel is the perfect backdrop for your logo or company name, which we include printed in 1 color standard (or more colors for an additional fee).
Know what doesn't cost an additional fee? The fact that this pen writes in red, black, blue, and green. Crazy stuff!
The pen to the left is the FUTURE. IT'S THE B3, or Bic3, and has some great features. it has a mechanical pencil, a black pen, and a red pen, all in one. We print these in one color on the cap.
I guess one of our suppliers is a little "antsy" in their "pantsy" this year, because we have a pretty good size list of what's going to be available from one of our best providers this upcoming year for 2014 promotional products.
This stuff is brand spankin' new, so call or email us for availability. Enjoy the show!
2013 was huge for tech promo items and swag. Looks like 2014 is coming out of the gate the same way, because the first few items we received were tech promotional items. Not that we're complaining, we love this stuff, and your customers will too.
To the left is the Glogo PL 1236 mobile device battery. It comes with a white gift box and your FULL COLOR logo on top. This one is hot off the press and we don't even have a price for the darn thing yet. But mark my words, it will be a hot seller.
We might as well stick with the weird named car-chargy type tech stuff. This is the Glogo pl 1237 USB car charger. We received a couple good size orders last year for our other car charger, and the customers really liked them. These Glogo ones are a little bigger and included a full color logo, which will make you look great at the next big event.
If you carry an earbud wire organizer, chances are you have bigger problems than tangled earbud wires. *joking*
Actually, who hasn't gotten their wires tangled at some point, and organization is key when it comes to today's busy schedules. Next time, your in laws will know you're lying when you tell them you were late to dinner when you try to use the ol' I was untangling my earbuds excuse.
These earbud wire organizers feature a good size logo and are just $0.44 each if you buy 5200 pcs. Call 401-451-1874 to put that order into production, your boss will love you for it!
Throw away your silver and fine china! These self contained promotional flatware sets are the perfect promotional gift for travelers and the health conscious. These custom printed flatware sets could be a real lifesaver when traveling in other countries, or for picnics which is why they were probably designed. The way they are currently priced, we could see these becoming a moderate hit at trade shows and conventions.
As we all know, there is no shortage of awareness promotional items, especially for breast cancer. However, it is important that our suppliers keep releasing these advertising specialties, because many of the events are annual and it is an important part of planning and marketing successful fundraising events. The new freebies obviously aren't the sole reason people would come back next year, but it is a small detail that helps keep the events fresh, and we are proud to be a part of it.
These are a new spin on the in ear headphones trend. These earbuds include a snap top plastic case with your one color logo. These are $1.99 at 200 pcs. at the time this blog was written, setup fee and shipping is additional. These are a great corporate gift because people occasionally forget their headphones at home, especially for those of us that use our mobile phone devices as mp3 players. Personally, I use a dedicated mp3 player, as I hate being interrupted by calls and texts when I am rocking out. Call 401-451-1874 and rock out with this great 2014 deal.
This here is a silicon pocket that attaches using 3M sticky stuff so that you can put your credit cards and identification in the pocket instead of your wallet. I haven't carried a wallet in forever, this is a great idea for people who...always have their phone. These silicone pockets also protect against electronic credit card theft, although I am not exactly sure how. (but they do)
These are under $2.50 each @ 2500 pcs.
We know...we already HAVE thousands of totes for sale...but the way we see it is this:
There are shows every year, and a lot of the people who attend them are the same every year. We need to keep putting out new tote bags so that people enjoy getting a new bag at every convention (basically).
These BURST totes are high quality custom logo trade show tote bags with your one color imprint.
Even with hundreds, possibly thousands of stress ball ideas, we keep releasing new ones every year, and this is one of our favorites in a long time. It's a wobbly egg shaped stress ball fella, and he's giving two thumbs up. These stress relievers could be used in just about any campaign that requires a positive image or outlook, and you can expect EGG-ceptional RESULTS!
There will always be a place in the industry for stadium cups, but if we had to name a successor to traditional custom printed stadium cups, this would be it. These are double walled heavyweight BPA free polystyrene, and they look cooler than traditional party cups. Sure they are a bit more pricey than stadium cups, but they also make a great stand-alone gift for incoming college freshman orientations, or, more appropriately, as a homecoming gift to Alums.
This is the Voyager Tritan water bottle with imprinted sleeve. We are no stranger to these bottles, they are very high quality and are a great representation within the mid to high water bottle price point. You get a lot for your money, and in our experience people tend to keep these custom printed water bottles for a long time. The bright colors are great for spring time, earth day events, and charities.
We're not going to be super long winded on this one, because we have been compiling items to do a blanket feature on a different page. Just let us tell you, this is one of the softest blankets we sell, and it features a faux mink exterior and super soft lamb'swool-like lining. I sure wish I had one of these in my office today, we are based in Rhode Island and we are having a freezing rain snow mix kind of day as I write this blog.
These are just a handful of items that are available for 2014 (some of them we can get right now..shhhh..).
We're going to stop before this particular Connecticut supplier gets a big head, but we feel that we have featured a decent amount of their new items, enough to let you know that it's going to be a great year for promo swag. We're going to throw in a contact form right here, use it to let us know if anything looks good for your business, or if there's something else that you would like to see.
