Promo Products Hit
As consumers hit the beaches this
holiday weekend, they can be sure
of seeing one thing: promotional
products. Desperate to reach a highly
captive and targeted audience, marketers
are increasingly reaching out to
beach-goers, and logoed items are
one of the most effective and long-lasting
mediums. Lifetime TV's logoed beach
umbrellas, for example, still spot
the landscape even though they were
given out by the cable channel last
that leave an imprint of advertisers'
logos in the sand
are also popular, which is no surprise
to John Amsterdam, president of
Neet Feet (asi/73525). "Leaving a logo
impression in the sand
makes it visible for everyone,
yet it's an environmentally friendly
way to advertise," Amsterdam
says. "Plus, when you like
that logo or company, it's kind
of a cool thing to look back
and see the logo everywhere."
Gadget Gets Notice Thomas Perlmutter, president
of Thomas Perlmutter & Associates (asi/77384),
and his invention of OpenX – a
tool that makes it easier and safer
to open plastic clamshell packaging — were
recently featured in Business
magazine. Previously a designer of
clamshell inserts, Perlmutter was
inspired to create the gadget when
he couldn't open one of the tricky
plastic packages at a birthday dinner. "I
was part of the problem, and now
I have created the solution," Perlmutter
A Tab On Promotions
Ball Corporation, an unlisted specialty
beverage can manufacturer, has
developed a new form of can advertising
which allows a custom message to
be printed directly on the tab
on the top of a can. This small
billboard is laser incised on a
solid colored tab making it possible
to engrave letters, numbers, drawings
or symbols. While they are currently
targeted to retail, it is likely
only a matter of time before they
make their way to the promotional
