Celebrate the Top 10 U.S.-Made Promo Products

Tuesday June 22, 2010 | Filed under: News About ASI, Using Ad Specialties

Not long ago, The New York Times asked “Is anything made in the U.S.A. anymore?” Their answer? “You’d be surprised.” I know I was.

The U.S. remains by far the world’s leading manufacturer by value of goods produced. For every $1 of value produced in China factories, the United States generates $2.50, the Times said.

ASI is happy to do its part with its first-ever Top 10 list of promotional products made in the U.S., proving once again that the innovative American spirit remains in full force when it comes to promo products and creative ad campaigns.

Just in time to celebrate summer and Independence Day, here’s our list of Top 10 Made-in-the-USA Products:

  • Ice Cream Cone Hat: Fun, goofy hat is the perfect promo for ice cream shops.
  • Fireworks Fan/Viewer: Hand fan cools user and viewer enhances rockets’ red glare.
