Something Smells Good The Pitch: I have found the perfect inexpensive item for any promotion: Aakron Rule Corp. (asi/50270) now offers scented saddle-shaped key holders, which come in a variety of colors with complementary scents. For example, they’ve got white with vanilla, red with cinnamon, green with pine, blue with fresh-n-clean and yellow with citrus. These would be great for car-dealer and real-estate promotions, any promotion where “success is key,” and also think about citrus for beverage companies, vanilla for ice cream shops, cinnamon for candy shops and more. You get it, right? Pricing starts at a mere $1 for 500. Go ahead and click here: http://aakronline.com/. The Bottom Line: This holder has it.
Bone Up The Pitch: I have to wrangle Sneakers (our cat) into the carrier to go to the vet later this evening. It’s not going to be pretty. It’s like he has a sixth sense and will hide from us all day when he has to go there. Anyway, I was thinking this product from All-In-One (asi/34256) would be fun for vets to give out with relevant information loaded onto it. It’s a dog-bone-shaped USB drive. Please ask the supplier for available flash memory sizes and pricing. In the meantime, you can see it here: http://allinoneline.com/. The Bottom Line: Bark out orders.
Color My World The Pitch: When you’re feeling festive, what’s better than a cold one in acolor-changing cup? Garyline (asi/55990)offers new 12-ounce versions that are dishwasher-safe and made from polypropylene. They are also BPA free and USA-made. You can get them onspecial until 6/30 (so hurry) at: 500; $0.65. Think of these for all special events, sports games and company picnics. Click here: http://www.garyline.com/. The Bottom Line: Raise your glass (well, cup).
A Real Handful The Pitch: Of course it’s not healthy to eat an entire box of candy in one sitting (hey, don’t look at me: I’m not speaking from experience … a bag of Doritos, on the other hand …). Well,Taylor & Grant Specialties Ltd. (asi/90667) offers just the right amount of sweets with their line of Handfulls packs.Pricing starts at: 125; $1.99 and these would be great for trade shows and conventions. See what you can get here: http://www.taylor-grant.com/. The Bottom Line: A real treat.
