Got a Brand New Bag

September 22, 2014

Fall officially arrives tonight, but already, students are walking to school or the bus stop in the dark!  This new Reflective Drawstring Backpack is sure to get them noticed because of its reflective stripes!  

For going to work everyday, or for tradeshows, conferences, business trips out of town, the Transport it Tote by Atchison is practical and stylish ... and makes a great gift!

These bags are not new, but imprinting the side gusset is!  Pick a color and a size, and show your website or slogan on the side of the bag!

The Big Muscle Sports Pack is new and really awesome ... women will love it despite its name (maybe it should be Big Luscious Sports Pack!).   It is high-density Pongee Dobby nylon, which makes it especially nice ... and it is on sale through the end of the year!

Fall Fun

September 02, 2014

The official start of fall is pretty soon, and there is just as much to celebrate and promote!

Here are a few ideas to consider!

The new Mood Cup changes colors from one to another when cold liquid is added, but unlike the mood rings of the 60s, you get to choose the color combination!  A fun item for sports, school events, fundraisers, branch openings, etc.

We think the Clutch Lunch Bag would be a hit with nurses, teachers,and anyone who wants to bring their lunch to work or school instead of going out on cool or wet fall days.

Looking for a new classy mug?  The Kona Joe has a black matte exterior, with a glossy colored interior, and holds 14 oz. of your favorite morning brew!  On sale through the end of September!

Finally ... have you noticed our new Camo Category?  First comes September, then Octcober, and then November!

Here are three new tumblers ... all on sale through October ... and perfect for school, school fundraisers, booster clubs, cheerleading squads, and school bands!

The 16 oz. Jewel Tumbler can be used over an over again, in brilliant colors with matching lid and straw.   It is top-rack dishwasher safe and made in the U.S.A.!   Its big sister is 24 oz. and has the same colors and features!

Smart Wallet!

July 15, 2014

A new convenient way to carry a couple of credit cards instead of your wallet! 

Silicone Cell Phone Card Case attaches to the back of cell phones with removable 3M brand adhesive and holds up to 2 credit cards

It has a large imprint area, it comes in 7 colors, and ships bulk or you can order in individual retail packaging.

Pretty smart indeed!

The Cube ... for Take Out, Food Trucks, and Festivals

April 29, 2014

We are in tourist town (Traverse City, Michigan!) and so all summer long, there are wine, food, brew, and music festivals, parades, the National Cherry Festival,   ... horse shows, fireworks, street art shows,  the Traverse City Film Festival ... and that's just us (other northern Michigan communities too!) ... plus water sports, boating, picnics, walking the beach, sunsets, and dining in our fabulous restaurants!

New last year, and coming back this year, are food trucks in several different spots around town ... offering comfort food, Portuguese inspired food, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, whitefish, and ribs.

The Cube is a new bag this year and is the perfect size for "take out" (10 x 10 x 10) because it is not too deep or big to carry a couple of sandwiches, yet fits most take out containers. 

It can be used for a number of other purposes of course!  Smaller shopping excursions, taking books to the library, or carrying things to the office, cottage, or to the park!

Bags are walking billboards for your business and message ... everyone needs something to carry their stuff!







Promotional Products Work!

April 08, 2014

April 21-25, 2014 is Promotional Products Work! Week and so to share the value of promotional products:

Promotional Product Vs. Print

People who responded to a recent survey showed that their ability to recall the name of an advertiser on a promotional product they had received was 88% compared to the recall rate of a print advertiser (53.5%)

Response Rates

Promotional products boost response rates by as much as 75% according to a Baylor University study

Longevity of Recall

Almost 40% of people who received a promotional product could recall the name of the advertiser as long as six months after they received it (Schreber & Associates study)


8 in 10 consumers own promotional products, keeping them for more than a year in their kitchen (91%), workspace (74%), bedroom (55%), and in pockets or purses (24%)
