Case Study - 4th Generation

» Posted to Promotional Products recently had the opportunity to work with 4th Generation, a food market consisting entirely of organic items! Naturally, they wanted to promote their business in the most Eco Friendly way possible. Enter us, We pride ourselves in being a leader in environmentally friendly products. Ever see a bamboo USB drive? We’re the ones that pushed to get those out there. We’ve also been known to have incredibly unique Eco Friendly products, such as our EcoSphere (a self sustainable living system within a glass water-filled orb) or our Logobean, which sprouts leaves with your company’s logo on them.

We helped them load up on a bunch of Green products. Everything our model is sporting is 100% organic; the shirt, the jotter, the natural color bag. Even the black grocery bag is completely reusable, along with the stainless steel water bottle that we placed an original “be organic” design wrap around. 4th Generation plans to sell these to shoppers in their store as well as give some away to promote their business.

Getting your company’s name out there doesn’t have to be a chore on your list of things to do this year. With the holidays and preparing for a new fiscal year, we understand how busy you are. Promoting your company isn’t something you can take a break from; it’s something you should hand over to experts who can find you great quality items in your time frame and within your budget. Whether its Eco Friendly products for an organic grocery story, or the perfect item to represent your business at a trade show, is here to take care of you, your company, and the image you want to present!

So what were we able to do for 4th Generation? Check the pictures:

Happy Healthy Holidays

» Posted to Promotional Products

Let us at amaze you with our ability to intensify the creativity of your environmentally friendly holiday gift giving ideas.

With so much concern for the environment and the threat of potentially hazardous effects some products may have on our health it’s wise to stay well informed and up to date on the current facts about some products to which we should all be paying strict attention.

For instance, items containing Bisphenol A (BPA).  Bisphenol A is a hormone imitating chemical used in polycarbonate plastics and resins regularly used in manufacturing shatterproof baby bottles.  In animal testing Bisphenol has shown to cause numerous health problems. 

The plastic containers we use to store liquids or foods can leech Bisphenol into the contents they’re holding and heating these plastics increases the leeching of this contaminate.  All of us are at risk of ingesting this chemical by consuming any products that have been stored or heated in these containers and the possibility of it leeching into our water system by way of landfills still remains a serious concern.

At we care about the environment and we care about you.  Our experts are more than ready, willing and able to help you get an early start this holiday season on choosing or designing any eco-friendly item(s) you would like to share with those who are most important to you.

Infectious diseases can spread through the air or by direct contact.  When you cough or sneeze be sure to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue and then immediately throw it away.  Be sure to thoroughly clean and sanitize your hands every time you cough, sneeze or may have come in contact with germs.

It can start with a simple handshake.  Direct transfer (person to person) of bacteria, viruses and germs is the most common way for infectious disease to spread.

You should also be aware of the possibility of contracting germs by indirect contact.  Germs can linger on doorknobs, faucet handles, hand rails, etc.  If you touch the same surface previously touched by a person who is infected with a cold or flu then it’s possible for you to pick up the germs that person may have left behind.

First and foremost you should always have a spare tire and a first aid kit.  But there are additional items that you might not think of and if you live in a hot climate some of these are an absolute must.

Always have some extra water, for drinking and/or for the car.  Use a steering wheel cover.  A cloth cover (not leather) allowing you to comfortably handle the steering wheel after the vehicle has been standing in the sun.  If you have leather seats and you don't have a windshield sunshade, place a small towel on the leather seat before leaving the car so you’ll be able to get in and sit down when you return.  Pack snacks such as granola bars or small bags of popcorn or crackers.

Invest in an emergency kit.  Items you should consider include a flashlight, flares, jumper cables, blanket, extra clothes and gloves, paper towels, and a few basic tools like wrenches, a ratchet and sockets, screwdrivers and pliers.

Now with many airlines allowing only one checked bag, it makes sense for your wallet and the planet not to over pack when you travel.
The less you take on the plane, the less fuel it has to use.  Emissions from planes contribute to global warming at 2-4 times the rate of automobiles.

A while back, AirTran joined Continental, Delta, Northwest, and US Airways in charging customers who check more than one bag (United and American charge even for just the one).

Fewer bags mean less hassle.  Most hotels now supply simple necessities such as shampoo, conditioner and hair-dryers so don’t pack what you don’t need.
Packing light is easy.  Pick one base color such as brown, beige or black for all your outfits making it easier to mix and match.  Wear your comfortable or casual shoes on the plane and pack one pair of nice shoes that will go with everything else.
With this airline and auto power adapter you can power laptops, DVD players, and other devices with USB ports or AC/DC power jacks while traveling on an airplane or in a car.  To access the airline adapter simply remove the car adapter at the base.

Promotional Tire Gauges

Proper tire pressure is crucial in the summer months!  Be sure to check your owner's manual for recommended tire pressure and be certain to check the condition of your tires.  Worn, bald or badly aligned or balanced tires can mean accidents.  Accidents and breakdowns are no fun and put your safety at risk.

Just think about the tire commercial that reminds you that you have a lot riding on your tires!  They’re right!  It’s you and your family and friends.

Tire pressure should be checked and air added when the tires are cold.  Tire pressure increases one pound for every 10-degree increase in temperature.  If you inflate your tires to the maximum pressure indicated on the tire sidewall, you risk tire failure from over-inflation, especially if the tire is worn or damaged.  If you are not sure or are uncomfortable checking your tires yourself bring it to a service station and ask for help.

With gas prices what they are today if you want to save money at the pump just stay on top of the air pressure in your tires.  Proper air pressure will result in getting better gas mileage.

If saving money isn't a big enough incentive, how about the added bonus of doing your part and helping preserve the environment?  Less fuel consumption results in less carbon dioxide being emitted into the atmosphere.  Every little bit helps.

Some Spring and Summer Tips

» Posted to Promotional Products

The spring and summer seasons are bright, cheerful times with colorful explosions of blossoming buds accompanied by warm breezes breathing new life into the atmosphere.

These are the beautiful seasons! 

They captivate your senses with colorful images and enliven your spirits while wrapping you in the cozy comforts of summer heat.

Summer will soon be kicking into high gear across the country.  You can almost hear the constant purr of air conditioners ratcheting up -- with your home energy bills keeping pace.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) based on electricity and gas usage the average household spends $1,900 annually on energy.

Cutting Back.  You can do right by the environment and your wallet without having to make major sacrifices or lifestyle changes.  You can decrease your bills by one-third or more just by making some relatively easy and painless adjustments.
Here are some easy ways to help you save not only during the summer months but some can continue to work for you all year long.

Upgrade Your Thermostat.  Invest in a programmable thermostat.  These are handy little devices that allow you to cool your home or office to different temperatures at times that best suit your needs and schedule.

Turn down the AC during the day or whenever you’ll be away then program it to start up again 30 minutes before you return.  You should also adjust it during the night or early morning hours when everyone is less likely to notice a shift in temperature.

Installing a programmable thermostat should only cost between $100 - $150 and the energy savings can prove substantial.  According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), it’s possible to cut your heating and cooling bills by 10% annually by turning your thermostat back 10% to 15% for 8 hours a day.

Go Green.  Planting shady trees around your house will not only help shave approximately $100 to $250 off your annual heating and cooling costs but they will help make your yard more beautiful and attractive.  Leafy trees will shield your house from direct sunlight, keeping temperatures down, while still allowing sunlight to hit your house during the winter months.
If outdoor gardening and yard work is too overwhelming or not your forte you can cut energy costs from inside your home by simply closing your curtains or pulling the shades down.

Keep Things Clean.  Keep your air-conditioning unit clean and in peak performance.  This is a big money saver.  Make sure your AC unit gets a professional tune up.  This may cost between $90 - $120.  Also check the air filters every month or so to see if they need to be cleaned or replaced.
Dust off the condenser coils on your refrigerator to allow the unit to run more efficiently.

Buy a Better Bulb.  According to the Alliance to Save Energy (ASE), compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) require 75% less energy than traditional (incandescent) light bulbs, and last up to 10 times longer.  Look for CFLs with the Energy Star label. These bulbs now come in smaller sizes (subcompacts) that can fit into any lamp, and are offered in a wider color spectrum.  By replacing just four well-used 100-watt incandescent bulbs with equivalent 23-watt CFLs will help save you $120 to $200 over three years.

If you still have one of those halogen lamps hanging around do yourself a favor and throw it out!  These dangerous fire starters and their bulbs, which can generate temperatures of 700 to 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit, are energy hogs.

The Fan Club.  Install a ceiling fan to balance out a room's temperature.  This will allow you to turn down the AC and still feel cool.
Unplug.  Even when all of your home electronics are turned off, many continue to suck energy.  The main culprits in household today are televisions, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, phones and microwave ovens.  Plug the items that can be turned completely off into a power strip and use that as the on/off switch.

Fight Leaks.  You don’t want your pricey, cooled air leaking straight out of your house. Leaky windows and ducts are two ways that cool air can be lost and make your air conditioner work harder.  Make sure your ducts are properly sealed and insulated.  According to the EPA this could save you as much as 10% in energy costs.  So have your duct system checked out by a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) technician.  Find one by visiting the North American Technician Excellence web site.

Savvy Shopping.  Look for the Energy Star label.  The biggest way to help you save is to invest in energy-efficient appliances.  There are more than 44 product categories that qualify.  Sure, replacing large appliances such as a refrigerator or dishwasher requires an upfront investment but you can recoup your costs quickly by replacing it with an Energy Star-qualified model which could cut your operating costs by 30%.

Put your gym membership on hold and try getting your exercise outside.  Beat power waste into submission. Gyms across the country overload on A/C and most training machines also use electricity.

Less of a thrashing on your wallet.   An average gym membership costs $55 per month while parks and trails offer better scenery than any weight room.  At this time of year you never hear anybody talking about the great indoors.  Locate a hiking trail near you.  Take a mat and do yoga poses at home, in the yard, or while you’re at the park.  Check out volunteer opportunities that get you moving such as cleaning up litter from parks, maintaining or clearing trails.

Allergies & Asthma.  After a long winter you’re probably ready to get outside to enjoy and soak up some of those glorious rays of sunshine!
Unfortunately with the arrival of spring also means the start of allergy season.  Millions of people suffer from allergies caused by exposure to agents such as pollen, dust mites, and pet dander.  Many of these can also cause allergic problems such as asthma, nasal and sinus congestion, hives, and severe anaphylactic reactions.
What are allergies?  Allergies are bodily reactions to perceived threats in your environment. When your body is exposed to a substance you are allergic to your immune system tries to fight off the assault by producing antibodies.  These antibodies cause your cells to release proteins called histamines, which in turn can cause itching, swelling, runny eyes or nose and in severe cases, problems with swallowing and breathing.

What causes allergies?  Hundreds of different allergy triggers exist.  The most common causes include pollens, molds, dust mites, animal or pet dander and industrial chemicals. If you tend to get allergies in the spring, then it’s likely you suffer from hay fever, caused by pollen.  If your symptoms seem to come and go year-round, then it's likely you might be reacting to mold, mites or animal dander, all of which are common allergy triggers than people realize.
It is very important for you to understand the potential of developing allergies and asthma and be educated on the best forms of treatment for both ailments.

Solutions for Summer Fun.  Summer time can present planning challenges for working parents of young children.  With extra activities such as field trips and outings, swim lessons, special camps, amusement parks all requiring additional planning, transportation, work schedule flexibility and affordability.

Check Out Your Local Area Community Center. Many communities have taken advantage of recreation centers and parks to offer reasonable child care during the summer and weeks when children are out of school. Some cities promote summer fun child-care camps as a community service for its residents for a nominal fee.  A possible advantage to using recreation center care is if parents only need a few weeks covered and want certain summer fun days or activities for their kids.  Many centers structure the fees on a week-by-week basis, which allows flexibility for summer fun planning. Parents shouldn't delay in signing up since space is limited and fills up fast.

Start a Neighborhood Co-op.   Gather together parents of similar-aged children in your neighborhood and start a summer fun program for your kids.  Meet and agree to a calendar of activities and events.  Parents can alternate care and plan and carry out a fun outing for all participants for assigned days.  There typically is no money that changes hands.  Everyone equally takes turns and plans an enjoyable and safe day.

It is essential for you to acquire new customers and grow your business by being absolutely certain to only send customers relevant, targeted offers that they actually want to receive.

In an industry littered with competition and product variation, now is the time to re-evaluate the ways in which your data is collected and used as well as how you communicate with potential customers.  Recipients no longer tolerate irrelevant marketing materials sent via email or any other medium.
Make sure the URL of your website appears prominently on every piece of paper and all correspondence your business generates.  This is a brilliant approach to free advertising.

Bet you just can’t wait to get on the road again!

If that’s true and you are on the verge of driving off to parts unknown here are some very important points you should consider before you start the engine.
Make absolutely certain you have current insurance and registration information with you at all times.  You should also bring along your car’s owner manual organized maintenance records.

Do a pre-travel check list before heading out on your summer adventure.
With all that hot weather driving you’re going to be doing take precautions now and assess the condition of the vehicle you plan to use on your trips.

Check all your lights and turn signals and be sure to check all fluids.  Change your oil every 3,000 – 5,000.  Summer months are extremely hard on a car's cooling system.  Inspect your radiator for signs of corrosion or leaking.  Flush the radiator and change engine coolant every two years.

Check and fill other fluids such as the power steering, brake, transmission, battery and radiator to recommended levels and don’t forget to top off the windshield washer fluid.

If your windshield has a chip or ding that damage needs to be repaired before "thermal shock" causes it to turn into a major crack. Thermal shock is what can happen when cold air from the air conditioning blows on a hot windshield.  Repairing a windshield is a lot less expensive than replacing one.
Intense summer heat can mean disaster for an older battery.  The average life of a battery is 31/2 years.  If your battery is that age or older then it's probably time for it to be replaced.

Tire pressure is critical in summer.  Check your owner's manual for recommended tire pressure.  Worn, bald or badly aligned or balanced tires can mean accidents.  Tire pressure should be checked and air added when the tires are cold.  Tire pressure increases one pound for every 10-degree increase in temperature. If you inflate your tires to the maximum pressure indicated on the tire sidewall, you risk tire failure from over-inflation, especially if the tire is worn or damaged.

If you’ll be traveling in remote areas, consider having a full-size spare tire instead of a temporary emergency spare.  Temporary emergency spares only have a 50-to-100 mile life expectancy and may be inadequate for your needs.
Check radiator, heater and vacuum hoses for cracks and bulges and inspect all belts for splits or damage.

Worn or misfiring spark plugs can affect how efficiently a vehicle burns the fuel/air mixture.  Worn spark plugs waste gas and increase exhaust emissions.  Check and replaced as needed.

Don't postpone needed brake work. It's dangerous to drive with poorly performing brakes and postponing brake service will only end up costing you more.

Help Your Customers Save Money

» Posted to Promotional Products

Save money and cut down on waste.

44 million people eat lunch out instead of bringing it from home.  If you’re trying to save a little more money this might be an easy way to help make that happen.
By bringing lunch to work just four days a week (treat yourself with one lunch out during the week), you’ll be amazed how much money it’ll help you save.
You may not realize it but the savings can be substantial.
While take-out lunches are convenient and pretty inexpensive they still impact your wallet.

Let’s say that on average, buying lunch out costs about $7 making eating out five days a week total $35.00.

Whereas, if you bring lunch from home consisting of a sandwich, a piece of fruit and a jell-o or yogurt the cost probably averages around just $2.00.  As you can see there is an added benefit of having the ability to make smarter healthier choices about what you eat.  Be sure to always use a reusable bag to help cut down on waste.

Heavy Duty Insulated Bag - as low as $4.95

promotional lunch bag









So, eating lunches from home four days plus one day out averages $15.00 per week and eating out every day averages $35.00 the difference is a savings of $20.00 making a monthly savings of about $80.00.

When you do go out to get something to eat and bring back to the office use reusable utensils and bring a mug or water bottle from home instead of using Styrofoam or plastic cups for coffee and water.

Most Common Types of Advertising

  1. Consumer.  Advertising of products or services sold to the general public.
  2. Business-to-Business.  When you advertise products or services sold by one business to another. Also known and referred to as trade or industrial advertising.
  3. Direct Response.  Advertising that seeks to get the reader to take an action.  Examples: fill out an order form, call a sales representative or clip and use a coupon.

Differentiate your product's or service's features from its benefits.  Features are valuable and can undoubtedly augment your product, but the benefits are ultimately what motivate people to make a purchase.  Be sure to convey how your product's or service's benefits pertain to least one basic human need.  Success, safety, good health/appearance, financial security and saving time, are some examples of the needs all people have.

Wine Promotions - On Wine and Promotions

» Posted to Promotional Products

“It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend, one's present or future thirst, the excellence of the wine, or any other reason.”

-Latin Proverb

Looking for unique gift for the holidays? Sending a bottle of wine or wine gift set is a very sophisticated way to say, “Thank you, we appreciate you, and enjoy!” It is also great idea for company parties and weddings.

Many people are making a concerted effort to drink more wine since studies have come out and proven that wine in moderation can help prevent heart disease, cancer and other conditions.

Wine does this by increasing the amount of good cholesterol in the body and it can also lengthen the amount of time it takes your blood to clot.

According to Lana Christian at, “Drinking wine has grown in popularity—especially since 1992, when Renaud and DeLongeril presented the discovery of the "French Paradox." Although the French ate a diet high in saturated fat, their mortality rate from chronic heart disease was unexpectedly lower than other industrialized countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom. And the most striking difference between the French diet and the diets of other countries is their consumption of wine.

Wine is fun, affordable, and a healthier alternative to sending over loads of sweets for the holidays. Find out more by talking to one of our sales reps today.

Cheers. Here is to your company’s success!

Please take a moment to think about what you see on the wrists of most people in every day life. If a watch comes to mind, you're thinking about a great opportunity to promote your company!

Timepieces have a long history. It is believed that King Henry VIII had one of the very first portable clocks (a watch), which he wore on a large gold chain around his neck. However, his watch only had an hour hand, and timepieces have come a very long way since his time. In the modern world, watches are typically worn on the wrist and they come in countless styles and shapes. Wrist watches were originally designed and sold in the late 19th century as a woman's accessory. But when the first airplanes were being flown in the early 20th century, this timepiece became a very useful item for aviators - thus launching the wrist watch into popular culture. Now in the 21st century, all over the world, people of all nations wear watches.

This popular and practical invention makes an ideal promotional product. can help you find the perfect promotional watches for your business or organization. A watch with your company's name or logo is a great way to get your business into the minds of potential clients or customers. A useful and attractive item is always your best bet for a successful marketing gimmick. Men's watches and women's watches are readily available through our site. And with the holidays coming up, it's time to start thinking about corporate gifts. Wrist watches are always in demand.

Brand Loyalty, The Ultimate Goal

Brand Loyalty is defined by a consumer's allegiance to purchase your brand. Despite the presence of competition, your loyal consumer will continue to support your brand, and promote your brand to others.

Brand loyalty can even exist in the fictional world. Take NBC's hit series "The Office," this show has generated it's own line of promotional products that represent an imaginary company. People's loyalty to the show has transformed into brand loyalty for "Dunder Miflin" a paper distribution company in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Incentives, thank-you gifts, and the presence of your logo are all ways that we can help you generate brand loyalty. "We wan't to take promotional products to a level where what we deliver will position your business in a better place than your competition, we are not just fulfilling orders, we are creating brands" says CEO of Robert Stillman.

Even if you can't reach millions through a hit sitcom, taking the first steps to be visible and brand yourself the right way is key. Treat your customers and all potential client's in a way where they will return their loyalty to you ten- fold.

Show them you care about their safety and wellbeing and keep a client forever!

These thoughtful and potential life saving Automotive promotional products will let your clients know you want the very best for them and if an emergency should occur, you are going to make sure they are covered. The imprint on each and every item you give a client will be imprinted with your company name, contact information, and a tagline that really sends a message. “We care about your safety” or “taking care of our clients all the time” are a couple of good ideas that can be imprinted on these promotional safety items right next to your company name.

Don’t worry, because even if hiring the same firm that has created all of those Geico commercials that everyone seems to know and love of is not an option for you, it doesn’t mean that effective advertising is unattainable. Hardly! Promotional products/ad specialties are an excellent way to advertise your business on a tight budget! Circulate your company’s information and reach your target audience. can help.
