  • New Galvanized Metal Beer Buckets

    Galvanized Metal Beer BucketsOne of our top sellers over the past several years has been our plastic beer buckets. During this time, we have had numerous requests for galvanized metal beer buckets. We listened and we have added one of the most extensive lines of galvanized buckets in the promotional products industry. We have buckets as small as 55 ounces to hold one bottle of beer plus ice, all the way up to large 68 quart galvanized metal tubs that hold 48 bottles of beer with ice. These metal buckets are great for bars who want to offer drink specials and sell multiple beers at one time. The galvanized tubs are great for festivals who have beer and drink booths. These buckets and tubs are a great way to reinforce your brand by displaying your logo to your patrons. The best-selling sized galvanized bucket is the 5 Quart size, which holds 5-6 bottles of beer plus ice. This is a great option for most bars that want to offer a 6-pack special. By selling beers by the bucket, it reduces the time that your waiters and waitresses spend waiting on customers, allowing them to provide better service to your patrons. Additionally, it increases sales since more beers are sold.

    Our new line of beer buckets are sturdy, priced right, and come with your logo printed in full color on the side of the buckets. They can be used over and over again, so your branded invested goes a long way. Below a few of the features of our galvanized buckets are listed.

  • Promoting Your Bar Using Beer Buckets During the Slow Season

    Custom Beer Buckets - Plastic or Galvanized or Promote Your BarNow that the summer season is winding down and tourist season is over, many bars see a big decline in patrons. Traveling slows down with school in session, which means less vacationers filling your bar and buying drinks. So, how do you attract new customers? It's time to switch gears and target your locals and here's a great way to do it.

    Bars can attract locals with great music, fun events, and drink specials. Vacationers may not even blink an eye at paying $8-$10 for a drink while visiting your bar; however, locals won't do it. So, offering reasonably priced drink specials is certainly a great way to attract a bigger local crowd.

    One very successful promotion for bars to offer is to sell buckets of beer and offer a better deal when 5 or 6 beers are bought at time. After that sale, you bring out the beer bucket that is iced with the beers inside. By offering this choice, you will attract more local patrons and increase your beer sales.

    But you don't have to stop there. If your establishment sells wine, why not offer a bottle of wine iced in a bucket? By offering this additional service, you will also promote to the ladies who want to have wine rather than beer.

  • Personalized Corkscrew Ideas

    Personalized Corkscrews Giveaway IdeasThe wine industry has always been a big business; however, over the last decade, the number wine drinkers and "connoisseurs" have exploded. Wine is found at practically every adult party, even some adult Sunday School parties! Personalized corkscrews are great giveaways for parties, weddings, business events, and general giveaways when adults are your target. Out of the millions of wine drinkers nationwide, women make up the majority on a regular basis. Therefore, if most of your customers are women, this simple fact lets you know that these items will make fabulous gifts for your customers. However, don't discount men, because plenty of them drink wine as well. Personalized corkscrews with your business logo are excellent giveaways for your clients that will be used for many years. Compliment the corkscrew with a nice bottle of wine and you can bet that client won't ever forget you! Learn below about some of the options for personalized corkscrews as well as some ideas to use them to promote your business.

    Corkscrew Options

    Plastic Handle Corkscrews

    Plastic Personalized Corkscrews These are best for low budgets when you want to give them out in mass. While these will most likely be used, they will quickly find their way to the back of the kitchen drawer if the recipients have a higher quality, metal corkscrew. Plastic corkscrews are personalized by either pad printing or screen printing your logo on the items. The handles are plastic, but the corkscrew is actually made of metal. These are perfect take-home items from wine tastings, wine festivals, and other wine-related events. They average about $1 each and higher for the better quality, plastic options.

    Metal Handle Corkscrews

    Metal Personalized Corkscrews These are much higher quality and have a much higher perceived value to anyone receiving them. The heavier feel and metal body of these corkscrews make these tools much more durable their plastic rivals. Because they are made of metal, they are a bit higher in price; however, the higher quality is well worth the difference in price. And what makes it even more worth footing the extra price is the fact that your clients will keep them longer and use them more often! The metal corkscrews can be printed, but typically they are engraved for a permanent decoration option.

    Corkscrew Gift Sets

    Personalized Corkscrew Gift Sets with Wine Stopper If you really want to give a premium item to your clients, a gift set with a corkscrew and wine stopper combo is a great choice. Typically these gift sets include the higher quality items along  with a nice gift box for the ultimate presentation. These higher dollar premiums are usually reserved for your top clients or as employee incentive gifts for meeting sales or other goals. These are great end of the year or Christmas gifts. Another option is to just get the personalized corkscrew in a gift box if you don't want to also get the wine stopper.

    Ideas for Personalized Corkscrews

    • Have corkscrews personalized with your wedding date and give them out to your wedding guests.
    • Have your company logo printed or engraved on corkscrews and give them out to your customers when they make a purchase in your store over a certain dollar amount. This is great for liquor and wine stores to promote higher sale amounts in one transaction.
    • Give out corkscrews with your business logo on them along with a bottle of wine as door prizes to your business networking events that you regularly attend.
    • Choose a nice corkscrew with your logo and give them out as end of the year Christmas gifts to your top clients. If giving to your best clients, make sure you are giving out a nice quality corkscrew or gift set.
    • Offer a wine tasting at your liquor store and give a corkscrew with your logo to everyone who attends.
    • Give out personalized corkscrews at your next tradeshow to all those who visit your booth.
    • Gift them to your employees as Christmas gifts.
    • Print your wedding date on the corkscrews and send them out as a Save The Date.
    • Give them out to guests at your corporate or private party.
    • Have the corkscrews engraved with a retirement date to give away to attendees at a retirement ceremony.
    • Realtors can give a personalized corkscrew with contact info printed on it and a bottle wine as a closing gift after purchasing a house.
    • Attorneys can give them out along with a bottle of wine to clients after winning a case.
    • If you live in a touristy area, have the city name printed or engraved on the corkscrews and sell them in your retail store.
    • Sell them as fundraisers for your organization. Works well for arts foundations!

    Personalized corkscrews are very useful and necessary for wine drinkers. If a large part of your clientele likely drink wine, you should seriously consider this type of promotional giveaway to promote your business. People love gifts and they remember your business in a more positive way when they receive gifts from you.

  • National Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2014

    Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2014National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is September 14-20, 2014. This is one of many areas of industry that is highly under-appreciated. Truck drivers are away from home for weeks at a time to ensure that we have the modern conveniences of being able to go to dozens of local stores and buy toilet paper, food, electronics, books, drinks, and other necessary and unnecessary items.

    Truck drivers endure countless hours each day driving down the highway with little thanks. While they should be appreciated each day, this is a week that we can all come together and show them our support and appreciation. Your appreciation can be shown through your kind words or by your actions and gifts. Because truck drivers are on the road more than they are aren't on the road, below are ideas for great giveaways to truck drivers during this week of appreciation.

    This is a prime opportunity for employers to thank their truck drivers for the hard work they do day in and day out. Without them, trucking companies would not exist. Additionally, retail stores depend on timely delivery by truck drivers to keep their inventory stocked, so they should be thanking their truck drivers with gifts and appreciation.

    Truck Driver Appreciation Week Gift Ideas

    • Lunch Coolers - While many truck drivers are no strangers to fast foods, there are times they may want to eat a bit healthier and bring their lunch. Promotional lunch coolers are great for this purpose. Have your company logo printed on the coolers and give out to truck drivers in your area to show your appreciation.
    • Travel Mugs - When driving hours on end, caffeine is a must. That why insulated travel mugs are great to keep coffee piping hot. Choose from many great styles of mugs that are cup holder friendly.
    • Duffel Bags - Because truck drivers are gone for weeks at a time, packing changes of clothing is a must. Duffel bags are very handy for this and this type of premium item with your logo is likely to hang around with that truck driver for years!
    • Water Bottles - Staying hydrated is important and having a great water bottle helps promote proper hydration, as well as makes it convenient for truck drivers to always have water on hand while driving cross country.
    • Tire Pressure Gauges - Truck drivers are responsible for safety of their vehicle at all time and that includes proper tire pressure. That's why having a tire pressure gauge is very important for their safety inspections.
    • Key Chains - Truck drivers always have their keys. So why not give them a really nice key chain to hold their keys? These are great for employers to give out to their employees and have the corporate logo engraved or printed on the key chains.

    Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a time to step and thank truck drivers that you know and come in contact with during the week. Hopefully, this week of appreciation will help you to better understand the importance of truck drivers.

  • Custom Clipboards to Promote Your Business

    Custom Clipboards - Ideas to Promote Your BusinessWhen buying promotional items, it is extremely important to buy useful promos. You want your giveaways to be used frequently, possibly everyday, so that your marketing message is seen more. Custom clipboards are very useful and are a great fit for many different types of business.

    Below are a few ideas and suggested uses for our wide selection of clipboards as well as the top selling custom clipboards!

    Ideas for Custom Clipboards to Promote Your Business

    • Doctors Offices and Hospitals - This is kind of a no-brainer. There are always tons of forms to fill out when visiting the doctor, so clipboards are a must. It makes sense to brand your clipboards so your patients can learn more about what you can offer them. Maybe your patient knows they can come for a physical, but do they also know that you can offer other medical care and save them from visiting other medical offices? Also, doctor offices are a great place for medical-related businesses to donate 10-20 clipboards with information about your medical products, such as medical supplies, medical gas, and others medical services or products that go hand-in-hand with that particular doctor office, this is a great opportunity to reach those people. Plus the doctors offices love donated supplies because it saves them money.
    • Sports Teams - Coaches who are serious about coaching their team, often carry a clipboard since they are constantly writing notes about what they need to work on with their team as well as referencing documents regarding plays and training exercises. Ifyour business is sports-related, this is a great way to promote your sporting products to your local and regional sports teams. Just have the clipboards printed with your services that you want to promote. This is great for sporting goods stores, sports medicine clinics, personal trainers, and others businesses that target athletes.
    • Schools - There are many businesses that sell educational-related products and services. What a great way to get your business name inside the protected walls of your local schools. You can't just walk in schools now and promote your business. However, why not give out custom printed clipboards to the teachers of your local school for Teacher Appreciation Week in May? Teachers are always on the go around the classroom and around the school, so a nice clipboard can come in handy for them.
    • Utility Companies - Companies that supply utilities such as water, electric, and natural gas require you to fill out forms to establish new service. Most of these waiting rooms only have chairs, so without a clipboard, what do you use as a hard service to fill out these forms? Somebody's back? Clipboards are a must. Do you want to target every household in your area? If so, get your name in front of these people by supplying your local utility companies with clipboards for their customers. Rarely will any business turn down FREE items, unless you are a direct competitor of theirs.
    • EMS Crews - During and after 911 emergency calls and non-emergency transports, the paramedic in charge of patient care has to chart various vital signs, assessments, and treatments for their patients, so they have to have a clipboard for this. However, typically, EMS clipboards are not the standard types of plastic clipboards. They need the aluminum clipboards with the storage compartment to hold additional patient care forms. Since this is a standard within EMS, why not supply these to your local ambulance service. A great time to give these out would be during EMS Week in may!
    • Home Service Companies - There are many types of businesses that perform services at your home, such as pool and spa services, appliance repair, painters, contractors, handyman services, cleaning services, pest control, landscaping, yard services, and many more. All of these people need a clipboard to do their jobs. Find the ones that are a good fit and give that company clipboards for their personnel. This is a great way to form partnerships with other business.
    • Sales - There are many sales people going from door to door and business to business selling products and services. They, often, carry a clipboard to make their notes about their sales calls. This is a great opportunity to get your business name in front of these people, as well as the people they call on.
    • Festivals and Events - There are always local festivals going on and many of these are raising money for a non-profit organization such as the American Cancer Society or your local children's shelter. In order to make these festivals and events successful, there are many volunteers needed running around putting out fires. And what do all of these festival coordinators have in their hands? Clipboards.

    The truth is, most businesses will not buy items such as custom clipboards with their own business logo on them, so why not provide these items for them. This is a win-win situation, because they get free supplies that are necessary for their day-to-day business operation and you get your name in front of new potential clients.

    Be strategic in forming these partnerships and who you offer these free clipboards and it will help your business gain new client and strengthen your branding.

  • National Aviation Day Promotional Items

    National Aviation Day National Aviation Day

    National Aviation Day is observed on August 19 of each year and was created by President Roosevelt in 1939 to honor those who were instrumental in advancing aviation as well as our modern day pilots and aviation specialists.

    August 19th was chosen for National Aviation Day because it represents the birthday of aviation pioneer, Orville Wright. While the Wright brothers were not the first to fly or build an airplane, they are the most famous. They were the first to create a fixed wing airplane with controls. Their first flight in this aircraft with controls was only 12 seconds and a whopping 120 feet in distance; however, it was god enough to count!

    This day of observation is a great time for aviation museums, aircraft manufacturers, aircraft parts retailers, aviation organizations, flight schools, and other aviation-related businesses to heavily promote the advanced technologies that originated from our forefathers of flight. However, President Franklin D. Roosevelt not only wanted aviation-related businesses and organizations to promote this day, but also all Americans with an interest in flight to host aviation-related activities.

    National Aviation Day Ideas

    • Hold an open house for your aviation museum.
    • Offer free food and drinks for your visitors on National Aviation Day.
    • Promote sales and discounts for this day.
    • Host a photo booth with a vintage airplane scene in the background and have vintage pilot gear for your visitors to wear in the photo and post on your social media.
    • Post historical facts about aviation on your blog and social media pages
    • Give out airplane promotional items promoting National Aviation Day.
    • Have your school class take a field trip to an airport so the kids can watch airplanes take off and land (from a distance, of course).
    • Host a paper airplane contest and reward those who can fly their airplane the furthest with prizes.
    • Have an aviation trivia contest and award the top participants with rewards.
    • Airlines can offer substantial discounts to fly on National Aviation Day (we are really pushing for this one!)

Below are just a few ideas of how to use the lesser know day of celebration to promote your business as well as a few cupcake-related promotional items.

    Cupcake Day Promotional Ideas

    • Hold a bake sale to raise money for the cause and, of course, sell cupcakes!
