Thumbs up Cool Promotional Product Ideas

Hi Everyone,

Wondering what you guys have seen out there in the promotional products world that looks pretty cool and is very retainable. The following we have on our site that I think are pretty cool and buzz creators at trade shows are:

- Big Sound Button - It looks like the Staples EASY BUTTON but the cool thing about it is that you can record any 10 seconds of sound you want. One company put applause on it and another, which is kind of funny, put "That was a pain in the you know what" LOL! Cute and most people won't toss this one!

- Sonic Rocks - These rocks are magnetic yet supposively stress relievers. But the main thing is they cause traffic to stop at your booth because of the noise they make. It's like a chirping sound as you toss them up in the air, it draws a crowd, let me tell you.

But fire away, would love to hear what you have scene.

Default Ideas For Cool Promo Products

Lanyards are a great item to give away since your company name and contact info can be printed on them, and people can use them to attach almost any item. They are like walking advertisements for your company and they are useful so chances are they won't be shoved into a drawer somewhere and forgotten.

Is this discussion open to people in the industry? Kind of sounds like it is?

well i could still say Tshirt is the most common of all give aways. A good t-shirt is a cool, comfortable, walking billboard.

There are many cool and unique promotional products you can get to promote your brand. Innovative products such as corporate gifts are best and seem to have an important function to. Items such as radios, MP3 players, laser pointers etc are great unique items.

Default More information re cool promo products

Doing tradeshows for my own business, I found that using unique promotional products such as membership discount cards, 3D business cards and savvy gifts captured a large audience to my stand. Every second person it seemed wanted to know where I got these items from. I was supplied by an Australian company called Nature Coast Promotions

Default Laser pointers

I just wrote an order for 350 of the combination laser pointer/LED flashlight key rings. The customer had an upcoming tradeshow and needed something high tech that would both impress the recipient and fit their budget. The combo laser pointer keyring won the day.

Well Mr. Beavers.......I'll have to contribute that I just sold an order of 2500 Javelin Pens to the Univ. Of Texas.

The director of a certain sports department was using one, fell in absolute love with the Jav, Googled Javelin Pen, and found my site and called to place an order.
