Yeah, yeah, yeah!

February 10, 2014

No wonder we like this bag!  50 years ago this month, the Beatles arrived on our shores to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show (and yes, I watched it)!  Each Beatle stepped off the plane with a PanAm flight bag (that's what we used to call them; now known as "carry ons").

Our Carry On is strikingly similar, even the shade of blue (but it also comes in black). This is the perfect item for travel, by any means:  plane, train, automobile.  Minimum order is only 50!


New Techno for 2014

January 17, 2014

We are adding more techno items in 2014, and here are three!

For on-the-go listening, these earbuds are stowed in a nice little case, which carries your imprint in a 2" x 2" size. 

Portable Chargers make great gifts and these come in great colors.  Charges iPhones, Smart phones, MP3 players, iPods, and more!

This stylish pen is a stylus pen!  Stylus on one side, twist-action pen on the other.  It's on sale through the end of April at $.55 each in a quantity of 300 or more!  And the ever popular Dart pen is now a stylus pen, and on sale all year in a quantity of 500 or more!

Check back here for more techno promotional items ... we'll be adding more ... but if you have seen something which is not represented here, call us!  We will be happy to find it for you!

 

 

 

 


Birdhouses for Spring!

January 06, 2014

Now here is a great gift ... new for 2014! 

More and more people are cultivating bird populations in their urban backyards!  It takes some time, but eventually a yard can be filled with the song of beautiful and colorful birds, and you can consider yourself a "birder."

To get someone started ... or just to contribute to what someone already has ... this wood Birdhouse comes in five colors and has a large space for your imprint. 
The minimum is only 30!  Great gift for anyone and any business to give away.

For another fun way to educate about birds, see our Bird House Kits, also new for 2014, and made of weather-resistant card stock.  They last a whole season and then can be composted in late fall.

Hot Cocoa in a Mug

December 11, 2013

I am picturing myself having a cup of hot cocoa in this Bistro Mug while I wrap Christmas presents!  15 oz. Mug has a matte finish on the outside in Cobalt, Black, or Dark Green with a white glossy finish on the inside ... better to see the cocoa!

It is on sale through the end of the year, and watch for special pricing in January ... it will be a featured item in our 2014 Oliver Specialties Idea Book Catalogue!

 


I'll Have a Cup 2 Go

November 19, 2013

Do you know what I and others like about our Cup 2 Go?  It is dishwasher and microwave safe ... and it comes in 10 wonderful colors!

It is a 16 oz. size (also available in 20 oz.), BPA-free, double-wall construction for hot or cold beverages.  It has a twist-and-lock drink-thru lid and a very big imprint area to show your name (we like the vertical imprint too)!

It is on sale through the end of the year, and the minimum is only 48!  Need a gift for your customers or clients or employees?  White gift box is included!

Looking for stainless?  Here is the Stainless Deal Mug on sale through the end of the year!  48 are only $3.73 each plus set-up!


Journaling

November 02, 2013

On our website, we call it a Meeting Journal ... but we think it is for more personal use, and would make a great gift to employees, board members, volunteers.

Journaling is a great stress management tool, but also a nice way to record everyday happenings, or something you read or heard which has a special meaning to you, or a list of things to do, music to download, restaurants to visit, wines you liked, and so on!

Your imprint is debossed in the center of the front cover.  The minimum is only 50!

For a pocket sized edition, see also our Mini Journal which has an elastic bookmark and a pocket in the back cover.  Your imprint is debossed in bottom right corner of front cover.

 

 

 


Sharpie Gel Highlighter

October 16, 2013

Unlike any highlighter you've ever used! 

I've been passing these out to some of our customers, and I insist they try it out while in front of me so I can see the raised eyebrows and hear the "Wows!"

Sharpie has created a highlighter with an advanced gel system ... it dries fast, yet doesn't dry out (yes, if you leave the cap off, it's okay!).  It doesn't bleed through paper, and you can use it on glossy paper, semi-gloss (like our Oliver Specialties Catalogue) and really thin paper.

It's awesome!

Also check out our Paper Mate products! 

We are quite fond of the Paper Mate Sport Pen on sale through the end of the year!  It comes in five different finishes, several color combinations, and black or blue ink.  Smooth, long-lasting, and affordable!
