Spring Forward The Pitch: Well, I love this time of year after we turn the clocks ahead and spring is right around the corner. I even polished my nails with Nail Ya Azalea. Now, we've got more daylight hours to do our gardening. I don't garden, but maybe you do. Okina/Symphony Seed Papers (asi/74930) offers organic, biodegradable "bombs" filled with flowering seeds. There are five seed bombs packed in a clear polybag with full-color header card. Instructions for use are imprinted on the back of the card. These are a lovely idea for any spring promotion and perfect for growing relationships. Pricing starts at: 100; $3.75-R. Click here: http://seedcards.com/. The Bottom Line: Business will blossom.
Good Eats The Pitch: Yesterday, I made corned beef and cabbage, which I make every year around St. Patty's Day. And my dad called to report that my mom made "delicious Irish stew." Family recipes are a pretty big deal and this item fromBook Architects (asi/41018) is a great idea for family reunions and fundraisers. It's acustomizable recipe journal with a full-color, laminated cover and durable wire-O binding. Journal pages are acid-free, archival safe, and include fields for ingredients, preparation instructions, photos, nutritional information and more. There's also a table of contents and a weights and measurements conversion chart. Pricing starts at: 50; $14.93-T. Click here: http://bookarchitects.com/. The Bottom Line: It's nice to share.
Baseball Bobble The Pitch: Oh, isn't it great to be back to baseball? Especially with our Phillies' pitching rotation this year? Even my dad, a diehard Yankees fan, told me he voted in an online poll for the Phillies to win the World Series. I know, I know, I'm getting ahead of myself. But it's certainly time to order up those trophies for Little League teams. DYR Design Your Recognition (asi/48051) has a really cute, unique bobblehead trophy and pricing starts at: 12; $12.69-R. You can see it here: http://48051.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: Sure to score.
What a Zoo The Pitch: It's National Wildlife Week, which makes me think I'm way overdue for a visit to the Philadelphia Zoo. Jornik Manufacturing (asi/63549) offers a flying, shrieking, glow-in-the dark snow monkey with cape,which is just right for any zoo's souvenir shop. I mean, flying, shrieking and glowing! What could be more fun? Pricing starts at: 50; $8.98-R. You can check it out here: http://jornik.com/node/1247. The Bottom Line: Animal attraction.
