Designated Driver The Pitch: On my way home
yesterday, I saw a teenage girl driving while listening to her iPod (with the ear buds
in!) and text messaging at the same time. I kid you not. If I were closer to her car,
I would have acted like the mother I am and said, "ARE YOU CRAZY?!" Of course, she wouldn't
have been able to hear me with her ear buds in. Why not help promote safe driving with
item #2069 from Firstpoint
International (asi/54405)? It's a safe driving slide chart for teens.
It includes tips on driver's education, permits and unsafe driving behaviors for parents
to discuss with their kids, as well as 10 ways to keep your teen safe while driving.
Let's start with no text messaging! Pricing starts at: Qty.-250; list price-66
cents; price code-R. Perfect for driver education classes, high schools and
the automotive market. Web address: www.asisupplier.com/54405. The Bottom Line: Toot your horn.
Hey, Hot Lips! The Pitch: Merriam-Webster
has just added "mental health day" to
the dictionary. I say it's about time. I for one could use a whole bunch of them.
Whilst one is de-stressing, let's say by the pool, stress-relief lip balm with
SPF 23 would sure be welcome. Lips get stressed too, especially if you run a kissing
booth. Pillowline/Norwood (asi/78105) offers item #40403 in green (eucalyptus/spearmint
flavor) and purple (lavender/vanilla). Great for spas, resorts and outside events. Pricing
starts at: Qty.-250; list price-$2.15; price code-R. Web address: www.norwood.com. The Bottom Line: Soothing sensations.
Tie One On The Pitch: I might cook more if I had a stunning apron to wear. Oh, who am
I kidding? Nevertheless, new Creative Color aprons from Caro-Line/Bandanna Promotions
(asi/44020) would be hot stuff among your restaurant/chef-type clients. Any company's
beautiful process color image covers 100% of the stain- and wrinkle-resistant fabric (poly-poplin
or poly-duck). Call supplier for pricing on 12 to 59. You can get the poplin starting at: qty.-60;
list price-$18.99; duck, $23.99. Web address: www.bandannapromotions.com. The Bottom Line: Pretty as a picture.
Under the Microscope The Pitch: PromoBizUSA LLC (asi/79903) has
a really neat product. It's item
#PP-TE, the Tele Peeper: A 7-in-1 plastic tool that includes a magnifying glass, 8x telescope,
30x microscope, flashlight, compass, whistle and digital clock. Just right for hikers, campers
and even peeping Toms. Plus, how can you go wrong with EQP? Web address: www.promobizusa.com.
Expires 9/30/08. The Bottom Line: Be on the lookout.
Pull Up Your Pants, Please The Pitch: Flint, Michigan is cracking
down on people who wear those saggy, baggy pants that leave their undies on display. The police
chief says it's indecent exposure.
Well, here's a way to gain some decent exposure, while at the same time, holding up your
drawers: Chemical Light Inc. (asi/44888) offers item #APR101EA. It's
a light-up 52" LED belt, specifically geared toward the younger generation. The belt buckle
has room for a large imprint. Batteries are included and installed. Think about bar promotions,
concerts, parties … anywhere the kids are hanging out these days. Pricing starts
at: Qty.-48; list price-$14.50; price code-R. Web address: www.asi44888.com. The Bottom Line: Belt one out.
