A Commercial with Troy Smith

On Thursday the 19th I had the opportunity to shoot a couple of commercials with Heisman Trophy Winner Troy Smith, Doug Datish and Bobby Carpenter. The shoot was for the Jeff Drennen Dealerships here in Ohio.

Check out the results of one of the commercials!

A Cool New Product

I just got back from a sales conference in Colorado...and wanted to share some cool new products from the trip! This one is super cool. This will be a great handout for trade shows...or for those who have to stop in the office. Take a look!

Custom Clips

Just got this flyer and a few samples yesterday. These are called Custom Clips and are pretty cool. Great if you hand out presentations to employees, sales force, customers, etc. Very visible...and inexpensive.

Digital Picture Frame

Many of you have probably heard of a digital picture frame. If not, you just load pictures from your digital picture frame into them. Then they sit on your desk like a picture frame...and scroll through the pictures loaded onto their memory. They are very cool.

Here is a variation on this. This is the digital picture frame key chain. This is the same concept but it fits on your key ring! Very cool. One of my best clients ordered them for Christmas gifts...and here is her comment on them:

"I wanted to let you know that the digital picture key chains are great. The pharmacists loved them for their gift. They are simple to use and actually even though the screen is small, the pictures still look very good. Thanks for getting them processed at the late date and in time for Christmas."

A Fresh Look at USB Drives

The idea of giving out USB drives to clients, and sales force is not totally brand new...but it is still a growing trend in the business world. Now check out the upgrade to this idea. You can get the best of both worlds by getting a cool, trendy, attention-getting promotional product AND a flash drive full of information. This is very cool.

As you can see you can do any shape and full color. The possibilties are limitless!

Low Cost Tech Item

I have seen this item out there...and I think it is great. These are Ipod speakers for a clients desk. This is a very functional item that allows you to listen to your Ipod in your office (without the earbuds) and has a nice imprint area.

The price point on this item has come down a bit so let me know if you need more information!

Talking Bags!

Yes, that's right! This bag actually talks when you open it. This is really cool. Talking bags is a product that you can customize or simply use stock items. You can insert your business card and have a true door-opener!

Contact me to get samples and pricing! I am ordering them I should have them soon.

Collegiate Favorites

One interesting note for you college sports fans: Picnic Time, a supplier that offers picnic baskets, tailgating sets, chairs, etc. have collegiate licensiing with many of the popular schools. Yes...that does include THE Ohio State University! That means you can get the schools logo on these items...and with permission you can co-brand your company with them! Contact me with questions!

What a show!

As many of you know, Amy and I spent the last week in Las Vegas at the promotional product industry's largest show. There were over 2500 booths and 40,000 attendees! As you can imagine, it was overwhelming at times, but we got through it all.

The things that caught my eye the first day were the great services now being offered by some of my favorite apparel lines. Ash City already has one of the most "fashion forward" lines in our industry. They have great performance and trendy styles with great quality. And now they will be offering their own in house embroidery. What this means to you is quicker turn-around and better service! Check out their line at or just go back to my site and look under More products!

Another cool apparel display was Timberline Colorado. In addition to a line that includes some of the very best pricing in the industry, they are doing some innovative imprinting techniques in house. I will be talking directly to some of you about this, but if I don't, ask me about their full color imprints on t-shirts and their laser imprints. VERY COOL!

Some other cool products we saw included:

This is a nifty new product that allows you to have fully customized full color key blanks made. They can be taken to any place that cuts keys..and have a customized house key with your imprint on it!

Flexifreeze Items:
This line started with just 6 and 12 pack coolers. They have bubbles inside the cooler that you can freeze...then no need for ice. I thought these were great before...but now they have expanded the line to include baby bottle holders, medicine transport kits, and more!

More updates to come...but I thought this was a good start!
