Adco Marketing Promotional Items and Products
Promotional Product Categories
Conference and tradeshows have thousands of booths, (and dollars) at stake. How to make the most from your booth experience? Adco Marketing provides items ranging from Table Cloths, Banners, and Popup Displays to assist with the look and feel of your booth. Your colors should be coordinated, but not so bright as to distract from the actual product or service you are selling. These are long term purchases, and we recommend thinking about future shows as well. For example, we have a custom table cloth that is "convertible" from six feet to eight feet, offering much flexibility.
Second to consider after the visuals are in place, is the flow of the booth. If it's a small 10 x 10 booth, you might consider putting your "table" off to the side, allowing for a more accessible relationship with the convention attendees, rather than the more intimidating, less welcoming "two people sitting behind a table" format. Regardless, its going to be important to provide an interesting promotional product gift that is actually useful, and fun, not something to be thrown immediately into a drawer. However the cononundrum is that those "throw away" items are the kind people gravitate to, thinking of their kids at home, or immediate needs of hunger - Like for example stress balls, custom chocolates, a pen, etc.
The more useful the item, the longer it stays with your client, reminding them over and over about your company. When we studied the "marketing ROI" return on promotional products for trade shows, we got some amazing results. Far better than say from handing out a brochure about your company product and services.
- 94 percent could recall a promotional product they had received in the past two years
- 89 percent could also recall the advertiser
- 83 percent reported that they liked receiving promotional products
- 48 percent would like to receive promotional products more often
- 69 percent generally keep the promotional product
Promotional products are powerful, both as effective forms of communication and as useable, necessary tools. The following results reveal just how seamlessly promotional products integrate into life, impacting the daily routines of the recipients.
- 91% had at least one promotional product in their kitchen
- 74% had at least one promotional product in their work area
- 55% had at least one promotional product in their bedroom closet/storage space
So if you'd like a lasting presence whether in the home or the office, select your trade show giveaways wisely, and give Adco Marketing a call for ideas! 888-332-ADCO.
My goodness where is my umbrella? Winter and rain snuck up on me this year, and perhaps your customers as well! Be the hero, save your clients from bad hair days with our custom umbrellas! Indeed, it's time to choose your next custom promotional product. We've had incredible success with our newest custom umbrella, the rebel. When you are looking for unique umbrellas, and you don't want your seat in the car to get wet, check this one out!
Here is a video that looks pretty cool too of me attempting to demonstrate this custom umbrella in a storm!
But often we like to go back to basics and year after year our custom umbrella, the revolution has stood out from our competition. This umbrella, purchased in bulk with your logo on it can stay in the brief case, purse or car. It's got a nice soft rubber handle and feels terrific!
Often when people purchase custom umbrellas it's because they want their logo to be seen! But what about the summer months? Always pay a little extra to print the tie. That way when it's closed you are still getting that exposure.
Our custom umbrellas vary quite a bit in size. Maybe in a big city, or planning for that next golf tournament, a large umbrella would be nice. This mojo golf umbrella is one of our best sellers. We take just a nice wide umbrella, but add things like "vents" which keep you and your umbrella from blowing away in that wind storm.
Call our dedicated staff at Adco Marketing to hear more about these promotional umbrellas or other winter giveaways like our custom beanies and see videos of that new rebel umbrella as well. Our number is 888-332-ADCO.
Trade show giveaways are HOT HOT HOT right now! Everyone wants the latest coolest thing. Gone are the days when the budget pen, a white ceramic mug, or a rally towel are enough to get the attention of that valuable potential client browsing past your booth. What are the latest gifts for trade shows? Here are the HOT ones this year:
Mop Topper Pens - designed as a technology gift under two dollars,but fun and eye catching. Eye catching is the key term - no, not our eye ball stress reliever, but actual fun looking items that bring people to at least have a stop and look see at your items. These fun unique pens tackle all the needs - creative and cool, stylus pen, and screen wipe all in one. Check out the highligher mop topper as well!
Ice Heat Packs with aqua beads. This trade show attention getter sure got our attention. Beware, others may sell this for a bit less, but the quality suffers. (you don't want it to burst when put in the microwave). Whether as a wrist rest or custom ice pack these colorful tradeshow giveaways will be a godsend for your clients. Think of all the fun slogans... "the cool company", "stay cool with" etc.
Need a higher end trade show gift? Beyond our number one selling jolt powerbank, you may want to stretch into our new circle power banks or flat slim style. Our new bottles are the same features as the S'well bottle at retail with a high perceived value for a lower cost. Same with the Yeti style tumbler - our polar tumbler keeps ice cold for so long even when you leave it in the hot car the inside drink is nice and cool.
So yes, for "cool trade show giveaways", literally cool gifts from ice packs and water bottles to fun unique pens, Adco Marketing is the place to start!
Nice booth, brochures at the ready, company banner hung, staff ready to talk to people. What else could you need? Well actually, quite a bit more. We break it into three categories here at Adco Marketing.
1. Table top gifts. These are inexpensive promotional items to grab the eye of those walking past your booth. Whether it's our custom cell phone wallets in fun colors, our new aqua bead ice/hot packs, or even a variety of colorful pens, color draws people into the booth for sure. Once there your sparkling personalities are needed to keep them chatting while you "vet" them to see if they might be a nice potential real client. It's helpful in this case to also have a game going, or a drawing, something where they can win other promotional items, or a coupon for your particular services.
2. Under the table gifts. These are the higher end promotional products such as our power banks, a nice travel tumbler, or a sunshade that might be useful and suitable for executives and potential buyers you feel might really be nice for followup after the conference. This useful promotional item will help them remember your company, and keep your logo and website nearby after the event whether the item is for their car, their office, or their home.
3. After the conference mailer gifts. This is the most critical component for trade show returns on investment. (ROI) Have purchased a post tradeshow mailer ahead of time. (Let's face it your team will be tired after the show, they may not make those phone call followups right away) Whether our simple magnetsm coasters, or a mailer related to your "theme", something that retriggers the memory is necessary. With our twenty plus years in business, our staff can help you design the appropriate post tradeshow followup promotional piece to help seal the deal.
We love helping our customers make their tradeshows a success! Call 888-332-ADCO for more cool ROI tradeshow ideas!
Quite often our clients would like to put their full color logos on our promotional products. However our experienced staff can show you which trade show giveaways can hold these complex logos. In the case of a pen for example, this can often be difficult, but not with our full color pens, an example of which is below:
Maybe your logo has half tones and shading? We know it looks so cool, and often customers are quite sad when we explain that the custom travel mug cannot show half tones. But rejoice, because new full color technology is all the rage and now we can show those full color imprints on a variety of items from backpacks and pens to power banks and cell phone wallets. Sometimes the digital printing processes take a bit longer, perhaps a week or more, so be sure to call Adco Marketing first and look at what might work for your event date.
Need to hand out some fun full color imprint promotional products such as lip balms, custom candy bags or microfiber cloths? Adco Marketing is here to help. Go crazy with these cloths below with nice large imprint areas in a variety of shapes and sizes. Great under a dollar promotional giveaway!
Really nice quality lip balms hold a logo as well with full color - just ask us to show how your logo looks on these unique, high quality Made in the USA lip balms. It sounds like a sales pitch, but really in terms of products made in the USA, we do an exceptional job with our lip balms. Whether with SPF, tinted, or just a really nice assortment of flavors, we rock the full color imprinting on these!
And for a higher end promotional item with full color logo, our custom travel mugs now can be printed with that super cool logo as well! See the exceptional detail and close registration on the artwork below.

Promotional products range from the incredibly useful such as phone charging cords and phone battery packs (called power banks) to the slightly more "fun" side of life including smiley face emoticon stress balls and cool looking unique pens. Going with functional items does not need to be expensive - indeed our 3m postit notes are as low as $.37 each and honestly even with all the computers and tablet devices in the world, once in a while you still need a decent sticky note to scribble down that important information! No one will throw them away if they are at your tradeshow booth, and they get a nice long desk life especially if you can do one that is 50 sheets or 100 sheets thick.
Speaking of functional items, Adco Marketing produces these really great coasters. Unless you are going to use your iphone for a coaster (not recommended!), these are another item not going anywhere. Whether it's the full color stone coasters, or the custom cork coaster, or even the pub coasters made from cardboard, what a terrific promotional item on a budget!
Finally when you are on a tight convention trade show budget, even though you've spent thousands on your booth space, we recommend giving out a logo item more than your brochure (and full color brochures aren't cheap these days). The average pen lasts two years and is owned by eight people - that's great exposure! Try our javalina pen for under fifty cents for a cute pen that still writes really well. Even our custom memory flashdrives are now under five dollars and you can load that brochure and your corporate video onto there.
Adco Marketing has lots of products under a dollar, so give us a call to find some other budget promotional ideas! Yes, even our car chargers are under two dollars now...
Let's face it - trade shows are the best place to get up and personal with potential customers. How do you stand out in the crowd though? You've paid for your booth space, your brochures, your employees to fly in and staff it. Too often at the last moment someone says "hey we should give something away like a pen". Well fortunately here we do specialize in rush production with over sixty percent of our orders shipping in 24 hours or less. But the best thing to do is to bring us in on the decisions made about marketing before the show starts. For example, many trade shows have a theme - perhaps something like "sales on the go", or "seventies". Are you tying your booth look to the theme? Or maybe your actual booth is going to be themed, with your reps wearing a particular color corporate embroidered shirt, and your table top giveaways lined up to match that look. Perhaps your trade show is in Las Vegas (odds are it is!) - so a custom poker chip, promotional dice, glitter mug, or other casino related item might be appropriate. Use Adco Marketing's years of experience to help design logo trade show giveaways to help you shine.
Here are some trends right now we've seen from our recent supplier conference. Technology gifts are still hot for this year. Multi port hubs, power banks that are slim and sleek, car chargers and definitely don't give out a pen without a nice functional stylus on there. We are also seeing a trend in patterns. Rather than plain solid tote bags and mugs, we are seeing totes with a little natural pattern or weave to give it some jazz. Additionally metallic gold and metallic silver promotional products are hot! The custom travel tumblers and umbrellas are also showing metallic patterns as well. Finally, we noticed an overall increase in funcationality. People want giveaways clients and potential clients will use either at home or in the office.
Keep an eye on our website, with new products added daily, or better yet give us a call and we can show items that haven't made it up yet. Whether it's unique promotional items or embroidered apparel for your trade show, keep Adco Marketing in mind thanks!
Here at Adco Marketing we get a lot of requests from hospitals, doctors offices, endoscopy centers, laser eye centers and more. They often ask, what can they give away that is more exciting than a pen but doesn't break the budget? Here are some unique medical promotional products below.
Hand sanitizer spray to look like xray, doctor uniform, scrubs and more!.
Aren't these cool? Remember often offices are giving out items to be used for therapy as well. These doctor stress relievers are just the ticket!
