Alien Concept The Pitch: Apparently, there have been many UFO sightings in China; so many in fact, that an airport shut down so the airplanes wouldn't crash into one. I'm not joking. For all other air travelers with no such worries, there's the checkpoint-friendly 600 denier polyester computer portfolio from Gemline (asi/56070). It opens flat to help expedite airport security. It includes padded straps and pockets for essentials. This is a perfect idea for business travelers and college students traveling abroad. Pricing starts at: 25; $22.25-P.Check out item #2607 here: http://www.gemline.com. The Bottom Line: Travel buddy.
Busy Beavers The Pitch: I'm so busy this week I don't know whether I'm coming or going. I know, I know; we're all in the same boat (hope it's not the Titanic!). At any rate, this is why I depend on a great daily planner. And not one of those electronic ones; one that I can write on and cross things off on.Gold Bond Inc. (asi/57653)offers item SS-900, the Sofisticate day planner. The zippered cover keeps papers secure and there are pockets for notes and business cards. It also includes sections for listing expenses, projects, finances and appointments and an alphabetical directory. Encourage your clients to start ordering now for 2011, because you can get them at $1 off the regular price, starting at: 100; $7.50-R until 12/31. Click here: http://www.goldbondinc.com/. The Bottom Line: Take notes.
Hot Stuff The Pitch: Why waste all that imprint space on a pot holder with only a logo? How about some Fire Safety tips for those of us who have been known to set our ovens on fire? Or a cozy recipe for chicken stew heading into the colder months?Lewtan Industries Corp. (asi/67230) offers item L-1706, with over 20 stock designs and more than 50 reference tips and guides to choose from. Custom shapes and designs are also available. Pricing starts at:250; $2.25-R.

The Bottom Line: Fresh baked.
A New Scentsation The Pitch: They smell; they are pencils; they are Smencils! Here's how new supplier Smencils (asi/87819) describes the process: "Smencils are made by rolling sheets of newspaper around the number 2 graphite writing cores. Then they're hardened - allowing them to be sharpened just like wood pencils. Next, we soak them with our gourmet liquid scents. Once dry, we attach the erasers and apply the stickers that identify which scent was infused into each Smencil. Next we put each one into its own freshness tube. Lastly the custom stickers are applied to each freshness tube." And there you have it, a fun product for schools and more. For pricing and other information, go here: http://www.smencils.com/. The Bottom Line: That's news to me (wrapped around a writing core).
