Advertising Specialties Wholesale
Truth be told, we almost called this page EPIC Advertising Specialties just to see if the ridiculous word would make people visit the page, because over the course of 2016 and 2017, we've seen people overuse the word in so many ways that we were considering getting in on the game before the word pretty much gets banned for egregious overuse. With the size of our item selection it wouldn't be a lie, we just really have something against that word. Perhaps we've heard too many people named "Chad" and "Blaine" use it in the past couple years. However, we decided to focus on what the site truly represents, which is a wholesale portal to the best advertising specialties in the world. This page is a focus on some of the major changes that have affected the industry recently in terms of new Ad Specialty Items.
You can't walk through a convenience store without seeing our first item: the fidget spinner. These started off with plastic spinners, and then came the ability to have your logo put on them about a month or so later. We were among the first to offer these basic spinners thanks to our amazing China contacts, and it's been interesting to say the least to watch the fidget spinner industry grow so fast over the course of a year (actually less). On the left you can see the football fidget spinner, we sell those as well as golf, basketball and baseball. Our favorite of all of the new spinners are the light up ones, the metal ones, and the awareness ribbon ones because at least those do something good for the world in how they raise money for certain causes.
Copper, copper, and more copper! This is one trend in the business that we are really into- copper is a beautiful metal and we were psyched to see the EPIC moscow mule mugs come back into style, along with hundreds of different types of drinkware items such as tumblers with your logo and a beautiful copper finish. Our stuff all stayed lined with stainless steel though, which is always a good idea as far as insulated mugs and tumblers go.
POP SOCKETS! 2017 was the year of the pop socket, the pop out phone stand that has a large logo imprint area and also has the ability to be mounted in a car if you happen to purchase the additional mount. This was also the year of many companies getting in trouble for selling knockoff versions, and we say good riddance to those rapscallions. ASP only sells the OFFICIAL pop socket which is patented and also happens to be the highest quality one on the market.
A couple new pet products came out recently, which is always important to the dog lovers over at ASP. Our favorite is the silicone flyer which is dog friendly and easier on your furry friend's teeth than the traditional pet safe plastic flyer. Some dogs really like the shatter proof plastic flyers, so we still offer those, but the silicone was a cool innovation and they offer a huge imprint area and very favorable pricing. The next pet promo that comes to mind is what we lovingly refer to as "the taco", it's a collapsible pet water bowl with a clip. ASP's headquarters is in Florida where it's always hot and/or humid with the exception of like two or three weeks of relief. ASP expects their pet-leash-mountable taco shaped collapsible pet bowls to be a big hit over the coming years. Another off-the-cuff favorite is the dog bone flashlight/dog waste bag dispenser with clip. It's a GREAT idea as a giveaway because EVERYONE should be picking up their dog doodles.
Not to harp on silicone products, but ASP had another real winner come out of nowhere recently, and it's actually a great idea. Carrying a wallet doesn't bother me, but some people absolutely hate it, especially in certain situations. ENTER: the adhesive silicone phone wallet holder thingy. Silicone cell phone wallets have a very significant imprint area, come in an array of colors, and now feature technology such as RFID blocking material for those of us that like to keep our info where it belongs - on our cards. More recently, ASP released a silicone mobile phone wallet that doubles as a cell phone stand that is pretty cool too.
We're pretty security minded, and we were happy to see the above RFID blocking cell phone wallets come out. Another innovation that ASP is happy to be selling is the webcam and mobile phone camera cover. Just recently we as a society have all found out how easy it is for hackers to access and activate technology such as your computer or phone's webcam. It can't hurt to have an attractive custom logo webcam cover protecting your privacy when you're not using your camera, now can it? I ate a TON of fast food for lunch today while working on my computer, probably more than any human being should ever eat, and sure as heck don't want anyone watching that. (although I am a very graceful eater)
Safety items and tech items are always big sellers, especially when you combine them. One of the coolest safety items that incorporates the tech business is the car charger window punch seat belt cutter combination. It's a normal sized car charger that can charge all of your devices, and looks totally normal, but has a built in emergency window hammer AND seat belt cutter. These items are among the best promos to give away because you might just save a life one day. Your momma would be proud, and you might just get the key to the city, who knows, the sky could be the limit. Anyway these are a great thing to keep in the car for all of the reasons I just mentioned.
Wireless Bluetooth speakers had a banner year- ASP even sold some to a Bar Mitzvah. ASP's professionals have the largest selection of normal and combo speakers, many of which now light up and do other funky stuff. Some of these speakers have ridiculous graphics capabilities on top of being an already super-cool item.
