Set the Date The Pitch: I was just thinking as I marked some things on my refrigerator calendar the other day, I'm coming to the end of it and will need a new one. Many others will need one too, so get going on your calendar orders withWarwick (asi/95280). I like theAmerican Experience wall calendar (especially in light of the 9/11 anniversary yesterday), and pricing starts at: 100; $3.36. Click here: http://www.warwickpublishing.com/. The Bottom Line: Keep it hanging around.
Apple of My Eye The Pitch: According to the weather lady on Fox 29 News this morning, autumn will be in the air on Friday. Perfect for this time of year is a foil packet of instant apple cider from Richard's Gourmet Coffee Co. (asi/82351). Think of any outdoor promotion (pumpkin and apple picking and hayrides), wellness events and coffee-mug stuffers. Pricing starts at: 144; $1.25. Check it out: http://www.richardsgourmet.com/. The Bottom Line: Cider sales.
Potty Mouth The Pitch: We bought a new toilet this weekend! Yes, homeownership is full of excitement and adventure. So here's a unique product to go with toilet purchases and also a fun idea for hotel bathrooms, special events, sports venues and more: the talking toilet paper holder, which plays up to five 8-second pre-recorded messages that change each time the toilet paper is pulled. It's from Flying Tiger Promotions (asi/54880). Pricing starts at: 1,000; $6.63. See it here: http://flyingtigerpromotions.com/. The Bottom Line: Wipe up.
Detective Work The Pitch: Consider this your own little Columbo: AdVantage Line (asi/31570) offers an illuminated 8x magnifier with a UV-light counterfeit money detector. This is just right for any retail establishment or financial client. You can get it for as low as $9.20. Click here: http://asi31570.com/. The Bottom Line: Shed some light.
