  • Popular Auto Promotional Products for All Needs

    Popular Auto Promotional Products for All NeedsBusinesses in the automobile industry have a pretty good understanding of their target audience - they're into cars and appreciate car products. But car accessories shouldn't be limited to the auto industry alone.

    According to a study done by the Harvard Health Watch, the average American spends 101 minutes per day driving; providing the perfect opportunity for a daily, lasting brand impression. Turns out, auto promotional products are a solid investment for most companies just based on their utility. Here are some of our best ideas for auto promotional products:

        • USB Car Adapter: Always handy, USB chargers plug directly into the cigarette lighter outlets found on your dashboard. Universal adapters can charge your smartphone or other mobile devices that use a USB cord. They come in a variety of colors with a flat surface to imprint your logo and information.
        • Car Windshield Sun Shade: Keep your cool while you protect your car interior with a sun shade. Advertise messaging for your organization, brand's logo, or your favorite sports team with these easily imprinted items that boldly showcase colors and text. Choose a reflective sun shade for your windshield or a mesh shade to pop-on passenger windows.
        • Auto Floor Mat: Additional mats and carpet can make any vehicle, whether a car or truck, more welcoming, providing extra comfort and a clean look. Durable and secure, mats also protect the original flooring of the vehicle. Choose from polyester carpet to Vinyl/PVC heavy-duty items to suit your recipient's needs. Neutral colors of the mats allow imprinted branding to really pop!
        • Collapsible Car Trunk Organizer: This practical item not only organizes the junk in your trunk, it organizes itself by folding down when it's not in use. Large compartments can carry your car's essentials, sports equipment and any items you like to keep with you in case you need them on-the-go. It saves space but still has a large area to screen print your promotional message.
        • Travel Adventures Highway Kit: Bring peace-of-mind to your loyal clients and partners with a promotional emergency highway kit. Emergency booster cables encased in hardy bag can be easily brought along to camping trips or kept stored in the trunk. Select your colors, logo and messaging to be emblazoned on the front to align your business reputation with reassurance and reliability.

    These items are a good way to solidify a business opportunity and show appreciation for those who mean the most to your company or organization. Order some mats for the trucks that handle your shipping, or highway kits for your sales team that is constantly traveling, or consider a trunk organizer for parents who volunteer in youth sports. Visit your local Resource Center to find auto promotional products available in your area today.

  • Political Promotional Products for 2016

    Political Promotional Products for 2016 Promotional item sales realized an annual growth of 1.09 percent in 2015, the smallest since 2010 however; it signified the fifth straight year of positive growth for the industry, according to Promotional Products Association International. Given that 2016 is an election year, promotional product suppliers have good reason to expect that this trend will continue, and at a much higher growth rate than the previous year.

    According to Margit Fawbush, communications manager for BIC Graphic, the 2016 presidential election will likely be a crediting factor of increased profits for promotional product vendors given that candidates seem to be buying more promotional products this year compared to past, and also due to a longer election cycle. Candidates are increasingly branding themselves as commodities versus merely faceless names on signs and banners.

    As a result, political marketing strategies are drawing an increasingly parallel reliance on promotional products to propagate their platforms, slogans, and ideals. This trend is gaining momentum as evidenced by Donald Trump's campaign which spent $825,000 on promotional items in the third quarter of 2015 alone, according to C.J. Mittica, executive editor for Counselor Magazine; and a recent episode of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert featured a segment titled, "Race To The Merch House," reporting on the growing popularity of the various promotional props offered by candidates' online stores. Aside from common promotional items for supporters, such as t-shirts, pins and hats, some of the more popular items include Hillary Clinton's "Chillary Drink Koozie," Bernie Sanders "Feel the Bern" coffee mug, and Jeb Bush's "Guaca Bowle." Candidates are using the sales of these items from their online stores to help fund their campaigns and increase their brand recognition among voters.

    Political advertising is forecast to increase by nearly 20 percent according to research firm Borrell Associates. In the 2012 election year, ASI estimated total election­-related promotional products spending at $870 million, which means if forecasters are correct, spending on political promotional products could top the $1 billion mark in 2016.

  • Promotional Edible Gifts for the Holidays

    Promotional Edible Gifts for the HolidaysTis' the season when company offices become flooded with holiday gifts and goodies from clients, business associates and vendors, particularly those hoping to develop a business relationship in the New Year. Many companies consider the holiday season the culmination of their annual marketing campaigns, a time to show gratitude for customers, patronage throughout the year and to create a sense of goodwill going into the New Year.

    Edible treats are part of nearly all holiday celebrations, and often a popular choice for corporate holiday gifts because of the warm fuzzy feelings they bring when people gather around to share a taste; of the holiday spirit. With so many delectable goodies to choose from, it is easy to find something to satisfy everyone's taste; but to do so in a way that is both memorable and delicious can sometimes prove to be more difficult.

    In order to maximize the impact of your holiday marketing budget, you need to make sure your company's offering in the smorgasbord of holiday goodies stands out from the competition. As in any good branding strategy, it is important to have the company name and/or logo positioned in a prominent location. Our corporate gift experts can help your business create a perfectly branded assortment of edible gifts that will make your company sparkle this holiday season! Examples may include candy such as buttered toffee, chocolates or peppermint bark, or other snacks including flavored popcorn, a selection of nuts or pretzels. Our elves can also help you add a personalized touch by working with you to create your company's own custom label.

    Promotional edible gifts are a tasty and budget-friendly way to share your holiday greetings with companies of any size. You may not deal directly with everyone at a given office, or even within a given department, but chances are you deal indirectly with people working behind the scenes, and it is a nice reminder to them that your company appreciates their business.

    Promotional gifts are also a great way for companies to provide their employees with a little taste of holiday cheer. With the added stress and pressures which are typical in the busy holiday season, it is nice to have goodies for employees who may not have time to eat lunch, or just need a little boost late in the day. We can ship boxes of fresh frosted cookies or brownies with your company's logo, or decorative tins filled with an assortment of chocolates, nuts or pretzels. We offer a variety of container sizes so that you can easily place them in the breakroom, kitchen or anywhere throughout the office. Not only will your employees enjoy these tasty selections, but they serve as a great reminder of your company's gratitude for all of their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
