Ball Bonanza The Pitch: Early this morning, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow after emerging from his Gobbler’s Knob burrow. If you believe in the forecasting abilities of a groundhog (and who knows, he might be better than our local weather people, given last week’s “historic blizzard” miss), this means six more weeks of winter. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be planning for spring and summer promos, though. I like the new 7-inch mini beach balls from Zenith Promotions (asi/98980). They come in solid black, purple, blue, red, yellow, white or assorted. Suggest them for amusement parks, travel promos, swim clubs, concerts, festivals, county fairs and company picnics. Get them for as low as $1.09-R. Click here: http://bit.ly/1Cqcvdb. The Bottom Line: Up in the air.
Plug It Up The Pitch: Steve snores. A lot. Every night. It’s annoying. I could useear plugs and Graphco Line (asi/57956) has them, polybagged in a plastic case. Suggest these for noisy venues; I’m thinking monster truck rallies and raceways … oh and bedrooms with snoring husbands. For pricing and other information, click here: http://bit.ly/16awZsi. The Bottom Line: Noises muted.
Ready, Set, Action The Pitch: Add a little oomph to your sticky note order. Bic Graphic (asi/40480) offers the 25-sheet Sticky Note Motion Adhesive Notepad. This is a fun idea for office, classroom, dorm or home. Take note, also, that this supplier supports the Wounded Warrior Project and will donate a minimum of $100,000 in 2015. To see the notepad in action, click here: http://bit.ly/1zN9cwo. The Bottom Line: Notable.
Cheers! The Pitch: Sorry Seahawks fans. We were rooting for you and there was a lot of yelling at the TV in our house. So close! Oh well, onto next year -- the year the Eagles will go to the Super Bowl. Stop laughing. Here’s something you won’t laugh at, but you will be happy to introduce new foam Power Sticks from Pepco Promotional Products (asi/77280) to clients looking for spirit-rousing items. Suggest these for team fundraisers, souvenir shops, cheer squads and more. To check out all their foam novelties, pricing, colors and so on, click here: http://bit.ly/1HM0ZMy. The Bottom Line: Play on.
