With the extreme heat that much of the country is experiencing here is a new product that can help keep people cool all day long.  It is called the Koolgator and it is a fully customizable, full color, branding tool that consumers put around their neck to keep cool.

Soak in cool water for 15 minutes and the non-toxic, biodegradable crystal polymers, sewn inside the middle chamber, absorb hundreds of times their weight in water. This keeps the consumer cool all day through the process of evaporation.  It is reusable, no refrigeration or ice is required and the directions are printed directly on every cooling neck wrap.  Go to for all of the details ....

I think summer is finally here and hot weather is on its way!

These cooler bags provide a convenient insulated transport for your lunch, snacks or beverage. The bags have a durable 210 Denier polyester exterior which makes them easy to clean. I LOVE the zippered laminated foil interior!  There is a reinforced 22" handle and a front pocket to keep the contents dry and it is large enough to hold a six-pack of your favorite beverage.  Great for company picnics, reunions, golf courses, 10K races/marathons, fund raisers and more.

100 @ 2.08 each, 250 @ 1.98 each, 500 @ 1.93 each plus a $40 screen charge for a 1 color imprint.

Technology Products

If you are looking for a promotional product that is geared towards technology I really like the products offered by Hand Stands.  I recently provided the MicroBuff MINI Microfiber Cleaning Cloth for a client that has an adhesive back to allows it to stick to your electronic device.  I know I hate it when my IPhone or reading glasses get smudged up (yes smudged is a word).  Check out some of their products at and let me know what you think!

Everyone likes to be recognized for a job well done and of course that is where recognition awards come into play in the workplace.  It is amazing the high quality of decorating that can now be done on awards with engraving, laser etching and full color imprinting.  If you want to motivate & retain your employees say a big "Thank You" for goals reached, quality of work and years of service!

What's HOT in the industry

I constantly am asked the question "What's HOT"?  My reply is not what they are looking for because the answer depends on many things such as:

- What are you trying to accomplish?
- What is your budget?
- When do you need it in hand?
-  How many do you need?
- What have you done in the past?
- What is your method of distribution?
- What are the demographics of who you are giving it to?
- What is the time period for the promotion?

Now, of course, I could tell them that USB's, Moisture Management Material, Texting Gloves, Made in the USA, "Green" products and Target Marketing are HOT but of course that would be toooooo easy!

Re-activating Old Accounts

It is a new year and people have new resolutions and goals to increase sales.  One area that you should consider is coming up with a strategy to contact people that you have done business with in the past but for one reason or another have not had any recent sales.  I would first start off with contacting the company to make sure that you have the name of the current person that you would deal with, clarifying if there is the possibility of doing business with them and then consider your possible options in reconnecting with them.
