The Joe Show: Hot, New Items
In this episode of The Joe Show, Managing Editor Joe Haley shows off some of the newest items to hit the ad specialty market. Want to suggest a product for a client's latest eco-friendly campaign? Need ideas perfectly targeted to the education and meetings markets? Check out the video.
Chillin' The Pitch: Check it out: The Chill Bag (asi/44816)offers cool (literally) tote bags for your wine or beer that keep your beverages chilled. Just add water and ice to these eco-friendly watertight totes and you're off. These are the perfect idea for BYOBs, wineries, liquor stores, B&B's and more. Pricing for the wine tote in particular starts at: 120; $3.86.Click here for the full menu of offerings: http://www.thechillbag.us/. The Bottom Line: Keep it on ice.
Decadent Eats The Pitch: I remember dropping into Polski's convenience store when I was a kid to pick up the newspaper for our neighbors, the Donahue's, and also to pick up a candy apple for myself. Candy apples not only offer a sense of nostalgia, but can also be a sweet thank you to your loyal clients (and theirs). Think of delivering them around Thanksgiving.Amy's Gourmet Apples (asi/35929) offers a wide variety of these delicious treats. Their pecan turtle version, for one, starts at: one for $18.99. Click here to choose your flavor: http://www.amysgourmetapples.com/. The Bottom Line: Simply delish.
Poker Face The Pitch: Here's my musical selection for today (feel free to sing along): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1hBPzPGrUA. And here's a fun idea for casinos and any promotion with a gambling theme. Sunjoy Group Inc. (asi/90154) offers a poker-chip-shaped 256MB USB drive. Pull out one section of the chip to reveal the drive. Pricing starts at: 200; $7.98. See it here: http://www.sunjoy.us/. The Bottom Line: Well-played.
Handsome Luggage The Pitch: The handsome Andrew Spellman, V.P. of corporate market sales at TRG Group (asi/90507), has alerted me to the fact that the supplier offers its brand-new Spectra Collection of hard-sided luggage for the fashionable business traveler and vacationers alike. This new travel gear combines lightweight durability with 360-degree weightless movement. It's just right for incentive programs. Here's a little tidbit for you: Andrew is one of Wearables magazine's best dressed in the industry for 2011. You can check him out here (scroll down; he's in the third photo): http://asicentralblog.com/. You can check out the luggage and pricing info here: http://www.trgcorporate.com/. The Bottom Line: Come with baggage.
