When it Rains ... Everyone Needs One!

January 30, 2015

 Oh, sure ... the snow is still on the ground in some parts of the country, but it is never too early to think about umbrellas for the coming months through fall of this year!

An umbrella is just about the best thing to promote your business, next to carrying a sign!  They make great promotional giveaways because everyone needs one!  

Use the Pro-Am Golf Umbrella for your next golf tournament or outing!  Banks, Credit Unions, Car Dealerships, and all kinds of businesses will be participating in one or more for a good cause.

But we have a few personal size umbrellas too!  The Barrister comes in 31 colors, and the Totes Auto Open Umbrella is the #1 selling umbrella in America!

The Stromberg brand Spectrum Umbrella can be ordered in as few as a dozen!

Watch this space for more in the coming month!

New Oliver Catalogue

Our 2015 Oliver Specialties Catalogue is hot off the press!  

It has ideas to carry you thorugh the first six months of 2015 and beyond!  Annual meetings, business, senior, and home expos, spring and summer fun.

Our catalogue, along with our website, is a resource of ideas on how to best promote your business and message.  While it and our catalogue feature only a small portion of the items we sell, the products shown represent a variety of useful and effective advertising tools.

If you don't see it in the catalogue or on our website, call our 800 number ... we'll find it for you!

Coasters are not just for tables!

January 08, 2015

We've always liked car coasters ... to absorb the remains of sweet drinks, or condensation from water bottles.  Whether they are cork, like our "mug rug for your love bug," or our new ceramic stone car coasters, they will be most appreciated!

The ceramic stone car coaster with full-color images of local sights were a big hit over the holidays!  You can show your full-color logo, product, building, etc. in full color too, at no extra charge!  Use as a "thank you for your business" token, or for resale in your restaurant, or souvenir gift shop!

The cork coaster is so inexpensive, order more for your next trade show!

The notch on the car (or boat, or golf cart, or RV) coasters is for easy removal from your cup holder.

Another coaster we like is not for cars ... but perfect for branding, weddings (instead of matchbooks), and public service awareness!  The Eco-Coaster is made of 100% recylcled paper pulp, and round or square, can be printed in full color on both sides!


The Cure for Overstuffed Wallets

December 16, 2014

We have a lot of new things for 2015, and here is one we think is pretty cool, from the makers of the Pen Pocket and the Gap Stick 

The Slim is an ultra-thin band that keeps credit cards neatly stored in your pocket or purse.  It also protects magnetic strips from wear and tear.  And you know those loyalty cards?  Bingo.

Made in the U.S.A. and awesome!

Quirky but Practical

December 08, 2014

Your special pen (hopefully from Oliver Specialties!) deserves a special home in the Pen Pocket!  

Hold your most prized pen in a special place separate from  ordinary pens 

Market to homeowners ... place on the refrigerator

Market to a business ... place prominently on the desk

Market to anyone who drives ... place conveniently on the console!

In five colors!  Made in the U.S.A.!


Ideal Corporate Gifts

November 17, 2014

 Do you need a corporate gift?

This Stainless Corkscrew Tool is ideal for promoting wineries, restaurants, and beverage stores, and would make a wonderful anniversary or wedding favor.

Also recently added to our website are a few other bottle openers/corkscrews:

This Stainless Steel Bottle Opener is a beauty!  It is highly polished and 6-1/2" long with a large imprint area and gift boxed.  Very, very nice!

A traditional style bottle opener/corkscrew, is this one, and your logo will be seen at all the parties!

The Paddle Style bottle opener is vinyl wrapped stainless stell and is a favorite of bartenders and could become your favorite too.  Availalbe in two sizes.

Another favorite (it is hard to pick one!) is the this one, which is satin-finished stainless steel, and individually packaged in velour drawstring bags.  Minimum is only 50!

New Drinkware

November 04, 2014

 The Ceramic Cup is stunning!  It's available in brilliant colors as well as white and black, with a white interior, and holds 14 oz.  Best of all?  It's on sale at the end-quantity price in a minimum of 144 or more!

The Surge Aluminum Bottle holds 28 ounces and is also available in a number of beautiful shiny colors, as well as matte black.  One of our customers ordered the matte black bottle this year with their imprint running vertically from bottom to top in glossy black.  It was quite beautiful!  The minimum is only 48 and makes a great gift!

The double-wall Marble Infinity Tumbler is new for 2015, holds 18 oz. when filled to the brim, and comes in fun "marble" colors.  It is often on sale, so call for pricing!

Is 2015 a special anniversary year for your company?  The Aspen Stainless Travel Mug is familiar to many, but we think the gold color would be great for anniversaries, gifts, and all special occasions!

Holiday Choices

October 10, 2014

The holidays will be here before you know it, and time to express appreciation to good customers for their business over the past year.  So we began to think, "what would we like?"

Here are a few of the things we are already using and like!

The Cell Phone Cradle is pretty cool!  Rest your phone in it while at your desk waiting for that call, or place it in the cradle horizontally to watch a video!  

These Mini Journals are real treasures, and anyone who enjoys writing would enjoy receiving one.

The Nitro stainless tumbler is a great shape and comes in some great colors. Double-wall insulated with a push-button lid.  24 is the minimum!

A pen, a light, and a stylus all in one!  The iWrite Pen is a unique and useful gift! The pen has a nice weight to it, and the stylus and LED light are great extras!

For the busy executive, board member, or staff, the Brookville Padfolio, with your imprint de-bossed in the lower right front cover is an elegant choice.  The minimum is 15.

Finally, it seems everyone is into yoga! Here is a Yoga/Fitness Mat in an imprinted carrying case.  Your logo will be seen all over town!
