Get Balmed The Pitch: I just read that Russians will no longer be able to buy vodka from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. Oh, the horror! For those who really like their taste of vodka all day long, Innopak USA (asi/62656) offers SPF 15 lip balm with four-color-processing digital laminated label, available in stock flavors like berry and French vanilla, but also in custom flavors like flavored vodka or beer. Of course, this would be great for bar and beverage promotions. Pricing starts at: 500; $1.02-R. Click here: http://www.innopackusa.com/. The Bottom Line: Add some flavor.
Wake Up! The Pitch: OMG, I need this for my kids (and to save my sanity), now that school will be back in session. TheFlying Alarm Clock is from the clever folks at Think Geek (asi/91123) and here's how they hilariously describe it:"Wakes you up with a loud shrieking alarm coupled with a little propeller-driven key that leaps off your nightstand. To turn off the horrible racket, you have to get out of bed and retrieve the key. The propeller flies the key high into the air and off into some dusty corner. You have to force your sleep-addled brain into wakefulness, move your stiff legs and retrieve the key before the alarm goes off." That's classic. Pricing starts at: 100; $25.23-P. This is a fun idea for college-related promotions and school fundraisers. For more information on item #79171, email email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Rise and shine.
I'm Going to Collapse The Pitch: Hey, here's a great idea for schools, sports, offices, gyms, events and more: a 16-oz. reusable bottle with cap that collapses for easy carrying. It's available in a variety of colors and fits easily into lunch boxes, gym bags, backpacks and briefcases. Plus it's BPA-free. The PopTite bottle is fromE.S. Robbins (asi/51216). Pricing starts at: 5,000; $1.94-P. Check it out: http://esrconsumerproducts.com/. The Bottom Line: Break it down.
Spooktacular The Pitch: Halloween's a comin', trick or treaters! My son and his pals are applying to be ghouls and zombies at the local farm's Horrorfest for the season, which is funny, because he was the biggest scaredy-cat when he was little. Now he just wants to scare up some money. Use this season to scare up some money for yourself. American Ad Bag Co. (asi/35290) is offering EQP on 500 or more of their kraft Halloween shopping bags with a stock pumpkin design. Great for carrying your retail clients' goodies. Click here: http://www.adbag.com/. The Bottom Line: Pumpkin profits.
