Reflect on This The Pitch: It’s raining cats and dogs today (and we have to move Andrew into his new off-campus apartment later – ugh). But speaking of cats and dogs, Evans Mfg. (asi/52840) offers reflector ID tags to help keep furry friends safe. They can also be attached to kids’ backpacks, etc. Suggest them, of course, for pet-related promos, as well as schools and summer camps. Pricing starts at: 250; 99 cents-R. Click here: http://bit.ly/1EOtSQq. The Bottom Line: Safe and sound.
Sound Check The Pitch: Help clients rock their marketing with The Hendrix (as in Jimmy). It’s from Acehigh Tech Co. (asi/30537) and it’s aninnovative vibration speaker that turns just about anything into a personal speaker. Pitch it for tech, travel, education, recruitment and more. Pricing starts at: 50; $12.50-R. For further info, click here: http://bit.ly/1Qka3Ho. The Bottom Line: Loud and clear.
Nothing but the Tooth The Pitch: What time should you go to the dentist? Tooth hurty (get it?). Sorry, I’m feeling silly this morning. Help ensure nobody’s teeth hurt with the Happy Teeth Sand Timer, which runs for about two minutes. Kids can gauge how long to keep brushing with this cute product, which would be perfect for dental office giveaways. It’s from Jornik (asi/63549). Pricing starts at: 288; $1.09-C. Click here: http://bit.ly/1Fmdw2d. The Bottom Line: Smiles for miles.
On Schedule The Pitch: How do you know calendars are so popular? Because they have a lot of dates (rimshot). I told you I feel silly this morning. Anyway, calendars are still popular promo products because they hang around for at least 12 months. I always have a calendar hanging on our fridge, even in this high-tech world. The one I have there now has warm-and-fuzzy sayings on each month. For June, it says, “Always believe something wonderful is about to happen.” OK, I believe. Drum-Line (asi/50873) has a whole variety of US-made calendars you should suggest for real estate agents, mom-and-pop shops, hair salons, travel agencies, schools and more. Order your 2016 calendars before July 1 for best pricing. Click here: http://bit.ly/1KI2KLk.
The Bottom Line: Pencil it in.
