June 05, 2013

Promotional Calendars

Did you know that 98% of all people look at a calendar at least once every day?  And that 74% remember the name of the advertiser? 

Now is the time to take advantage of the "early bird" pricing on many of our calendars! 

Here's another deal for you!  If you have not ordered any of the appointment calendars from us before, order by July 1st for discounted prices, and we will store them until you want them and SHIP FREE within the Continental US!  Yep, that's what we said!





Kicking Sand

May 30, 2013

Custom Imprinted Beach Products

It seems to have taken an extra two weeks to get here, but summer has arrived in the Midwest.  We just have to wait a little bit longer for water temps to rise for swimming!  But in the meantime, we will be relaxing on the beach.

The new Beachnik is perfect for summer beach fun.  It holds a beverage, or glasses, keys, lotion ... anything you want to keep sand-free!

Stack 'em up in your resort gift shop, party store, boat/jetski/paddleboard rental for resale ... and your customers will remember you all summer long!

Parade Season!

May 13, 2013

Imprinted Frisbees for Business Promotions

Whenever a customer asks us to suggest an item for passing out at a parade, we immediately suggest a 5" or 7.25" flyer!  Everyone, young and old alike, enjoys getting one ... and any type of business can showcase their name and services! 

They are especially suited for tossing from a parade float!  Numerous colors and on sale through July!  These flyers soar just as high as the 9.25" flyer, and we have those too!

Always fun!

Wine 2 Go!

May 01, 2013

Imprinted Wine Tumbler at Oliver Specialties

We know!  We laughed at first too!  But when you think about it, the new Wine 2 Go Tumbler is a genius idea and a wine lover's dream!

BPA-free acrylic double-wall insulated tumbler has a wine glass inside ... no, it doesn't come out!  Pour your wine into the wine glass, and then put the lid on and drink through the slide lid.

No broken glass on patio, poolside, boat, deck, or wherever you gather for summer activities ... and, of course, no bugs and no spills! 

Your imprint is on one side of the clear tumbler and your choice of  lid color.

On sale through the end of August!

Rain or Shine

March 05, 2013

Custom Imprinted Umbrellas

Did you know the word "umbrella" comes from the Latin "umbra," meaning shade (or for my Greek friends, the Latin comes from the Greek "ombros" ), and was used mainly as a sunshade, and then made of a coated material to offer shelter from the rain?  Today. umbrellas are used both ways, of course. 

We have a few umbrellas at great prices and a number of colors and color combinations, and production is approximately five days after proof approval. 

What better way to promote your business name? Umbrellas are walking billboards, seen all over town.

Check out  the Barrister, a one person umbrella at $7.28 each in a quantity of 25 or more through the end of April.  The Pro-Am Golf Umbrella doesn't have to be used just on the golf course ... this two-three person umbrella can be used anywhere it is raining, and is also on sale at $9.28 each in a quantity of 25 or more through April (but on sale at this price in a quantity of 12, if ordered before March 31st).

Microwave Mug Cooking

February 26, 2013

I occasionally listern to the radio while at work, and yesterday, heard a program about the "miracle" of microwave mug cooking ... and I had to wonder:  where have I been?  I mean, soup would be obvious, but I never thought about breakfast in a mug, scrambled eggs, an omelet ... mac & cheese, steamed vegetables, peach cobbler, brownies, and chocolate mug cake!
