A duffel cooler, sport flyer and tote bag are among the top 20 promotional products of 2013, according to Counselor Top 40 distributor 4imprint (asi/197045). Buyers rated these products the highest on 4imprint’s website throughout this year.
“Customer feedback is so important to us,” said Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing for 4imprint. “These reviews come directly from customers who’ve purchased and used these products, making it invaluable information for anyone interested in finding new imprinted items for their next promotion, event, tradeshow or other activity. Being able to consider the feedback from tens of thousands of people who have actually purchased promotional products is something people consistently tell us is important to them.”
The annual ranking includes 11 products that appear on the list for the first time. Earning a five-star review, the convertible duffel cooler is a 600-denier polyester duffel bag that has a main compartment with a U-shaped zipper closer that holds up to 12 cans, plus ice. The sport flyer, another highly-rated item, is a nine inch disc that can hold a standard paper plate at a sporting event. Also making the cut is a durable two-tone tote bag – a 600D polyester item that can hold notebooks and conference materials in its main zippered pocket, as well as smaller items in the front slip pocket.
Some of the other items that made the list are the economy pocket coolie, the color banded classic coffee cup, the side-blocked micropique sport-wick polo and the cell phone power bank.
