Here's where things get stretchy.
This is a continuation of another post (if you couldn't tell from the part two in the title). While in the first part it seemed pretty easy to make things fit, as the song goes on and the quantities of stuff increase, we had to get a little bit creative. We have oodles of products at ADVANCE Custom Promotions, ...
Why are there so many birds?
This started out as a spinoff of another post, and snowballed into something too big for my brain to comprehend. I've done geometry for the first time since the SATs. I've crunched numbers, multiplying and dividing. I've hunted through the website and called in favors from others.
And what do you get out of it? ...
Oh noes. It's coming.
This morning in a meeting, I heard those words for the first time in 2010: ''Black Friday.'' Eep. It's really not that far away. Stores already have their holiday season wares out, and I've already slipped into the mode of convincing myself I'll shop early this year (I will. Yes, I will.).
With Black Friday comes the full ...
What's his deal, anyway?
I spotted this stress keychain in our new products section a few weeks ago. I'll admit I wasn't in the world's best mood at the time. I found him to be a bit smug. I even e-mailed the marketing group to see if maybe we can get some angry products, instead of these guys with smiles plastered across their faces. Yes, the ...
Go modern with your marketing message.
Yes, some of the stuff at the Museum of Modern Art is, well, a little bit strange. For instance, a recent exhibit featured people in the buff, an artist (who formerly stabbed herself for art) sitting completely silent and clothed models in strange positions. We're not going to get into that in this blog ...
A blog post in three acts.
The scene: It's a summer soiree, a box social of sorts, kind of a big deal. You and 96+ of your favorite clients are getting together and you want a giveaway that packs a punch but would be appropriate for future soirees, box socials, nice-sized social gatherings, etc.
As it plays out: The clients have places ...
We've got the goods for all of your celebration needs.
OK, I'm a bit behind on this one. I usually try to write about upcoming holidays pretty far in advance so I'm not telling you about stuff that you can't have right now. However, we have a bunch of great Cinco de Mayo promotional products (or products that could be used for Cinco de ...
Like a singing telegram, but hold the cheese.
Typing in ''singing telegram'' to Google, I surprisingly found more than 90,000 results. Is that industry still going strong? These days, you can just flip someone an e-card, Rickroll them if you're feeling cheeky or plow their farm on Farmville to show your appreciation or affection.
The singing ...
Now why the heck are they blinking?
Ah, Christmases past. Each year my dad would hike up to the attic and pull down box after box of that tacky shiny tinsel and coiled beyond belief light strands. We were definitely the flashiest house on the block.
My mom was a fan of multicolored blinking lights. Yes, we were that family. After presents were ...
What would you do with a robot army?
It was love at first sight with these robot USB flash drives. We were scrolling through the ADVANCE Custom Promotions site when I spotted him, and I knew it would be a matter of time before he appeared here on ''Your Logo Here.''
When I got back to my desk after the meeting where I first met Mr. Robot USB ...
