It's that time of year, as we head into the roaring twenties and look to spice up our trade show booths, what can we expect to see?  Here at Adco Marketing we are loving the new looks on some of these products.  Eco responsible, reusable trade show gifts are definitely the rage going into this decade.  Rather than giving out individually wrapped candies, where the wrapper is thrown away, why not procure our reusable mint tins?  Instead of bottled water handed out at conventions, clients are spending a bit more on bpa free reusable bottles which can be filled at water fill stations throughout the show.  

Also trending are trade show gifts made in the USA.  Our bag clips, magnets, custom table cloths, natural lip balms and mini candle tins are perfect for those clients wanting to see made in America products.  

How can you decide what trade show giveaway is best for your budget?  Give us a call, our knowledgeable staff can walk you through the eco trade show choices at 888-332-ADCO.

The questions to ask yourself as an event planner or conference coordinator:

Reduce- Does it Reduce Waste?

Every single day 60 million plastic bottles are thrown away. Ack! That’s a pretty grim statistic. Something as simple as offering a reusable water bottle with your company logo can help reduce waste on a pretty significant level. How about a vacuum insulated travel mug that can be brought to the coffee shop? That’s waste reduction and branding for your corporate logo with every sip. Reusable straws are a very hot item this year. We have them in sets that come with a convenient cleaning brush, easy to travel straws that can clip on keychains, retractable for easy storage-be sure to check out this beautiful rose gold straw.

Reuse- Can it be Used More Than Once?

Choosing an eco friendly or green product can be as simple as picking an item that can be used more than once. Choose a cloth tote bag over a disposable plastic one. How about an item of clothing that will be worn for years to come? Not only is this doing something great for our planet- it’s getting your company years of exposure with one purchase.

Recycle - Is it Made of Recycled Material?

We all know the importance of turning items in for recycling, now you can be a vital part of the second half of that equation- purchasing items made from those recycled items. No product iliustrates this better than our “I Used To Be A Bottle Recycled Drawstring Bag.” Made from post consumer plastic this bag can also be reused again and again. 

People want to make better choices for the planet and by choosing from our selection of eco friendly products that REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE your customers and clients will know your brand is own board with them.

What's wrong with a custom mug?

When I started this promotional products company, the first thing my grandfather said was "make sure you offer jar openers,customers love those!".   Sure enough some 25 years later I still use samples daily that I've sold over the years.  We measure the cost of marketing and advertising as "cost per impression", meaning how many times your logo/ phone/website will be seen.  That coffee mug has the least cost for how often your customer will see and potentially interact with your brand.  Much better bang for your buck than an internet ad, magazine ad, or tv ad. Additionally, those logo mugs become paint brush holders and pen holders for the desk when they outlived their "useful" kitchen life.   Promotional products are always received with a smile, (who doesn't like free!).  If a company has a long sales cycle, such as a real estate agent, mortgage broker, or bank, these items that get good desk space are perfect.  I don't get that free mug and immediately decide to sell my home, but that magnet/calendar/mug will remind me when I'm ready of a possible source for the sale.  Are there hoarders out there who need help purging?  Absolutely.  Should we make more eco responsible corporate swag?  More made in the USA items?  Definitely!  Both are trending and at Adco Marketing we're continually pushing the creative envelope with unique marketing gifts.  In the end though, most clients eventually choose a mug, a pen and a tote bag. 
So grab your logo mug and head down to Starbucks, preventing waste from disposable paper and plastic cups.

It's that time of year when promotional backpacks are needed for the millions of children and college students heading back to school.  Which custom backpack works for your event?  We are the experts.  In business for many years, we've seen it all.  We help schools use custom backpacks as fundraisers, and non profits collect backpacks and supplies for lower income schools.  Give us a call for more embroidered and silk screened backpack options!

These are our Top Five Custom Backpacks


1.  Elementary students need something small.  Less than 17 inches for sure in terms of height.  If you have a small budget, perhaps you are packing custom pens and school supplies into these, you might try our drawstring backpacks which offer a budget price and are great for after school sleep overs as well!  We love this style below which has a pocket for your cell phone or lunch money.

2.  We also love the Elementary school custom backpack with school logo in it.  This one is simple, but super strong and will hold up to being thrown down on the playground.  Too cool for school right?

3.  Number 3 is our long time On the Move Custom Backpack best selling backpack for logo school giveaways.  Great for days when there aren't a lot of classes, or you just want to grab and go for a promotional school field trip backpack.  Speaking of field trips don't forget Adco Marketing does lanyards as well as traditional custom tshirts.




4. Ok it's middle school and above age range?  Serious homework time!  Let's get them this larger gemline backpack with lots of pockets, and room for those binders.




5.  Lastly college students love our name brand backpacks from Ogio.  Custom embroidered backpacks with your logo will definitely stand out on campus!

Cruise Incentive Travel Giveaways

Organizing a corporate retreat on a cruise?  How about a family reunion or a wedding?  Typically our cruise incentive gifts are organized by days, with a new gift dropped in room each day.  You can arrange this ahead of time with the wait staff of the cruise.  Building suspense is a great idea, and everyone will be excited to go to their room each night and see the new gift!

We recommend as follows:

Invitation to the cruise - use our amazing fun mailable promotional items for your invitation.  A cruise shaped luggage tag certainly fits the bill.  Or our invitations made from seeds that can be planted to spread wild flowers in the garden.  Let us get creative for you depending on your theme and we can design. 

Day one room drop gift - of course a wearable item is perfect, whether our nice ring spun cotton tshirts, or custom caps or visors.

Day two custom cruise promotional item gift:

A drawstring backpack is the perfect day two room drop gift.  Everyone needs to carry things around for those day excursions, and it will be easy to find each other when you disembark.   These come in a variety of quality levels so think about how heavy those souveniers are, and go for our high strength backpack options.  

Alternately if you've got a different more wedding type of crowd, a nice nautical themed tote bag is the way to go!


Day three incentive travel gift:

The third day depends on the kind of cruise you are on.  Typically we recommend something to keep memories in, like a photo frame, or full color coaster set.  Have something preprinted inside with instructions for the last night banquet, or a thank you from the CEO.  


These sales incentive travel trips can be exhausting as well!  How about one of our hang over recovery kits, or a basic first aid kit for day four?

Custom hand sanitizers whether by Purell or our regular brand are the gift with extra messages for your client year round.


Subliminially, the handout of a pocket size hand sanitizer says "we care about you and your health".  That is an important message.  It's more than the all mighty dollar that keeps your customers coming back to you.  It's that sense that on the basic "personal" level, we care about you, your health, your longevity, and your experience here on this planet.


In a world with "technology" components everywhere you look, a custom hand sanitizer is a physical connection as well.  As they spray the sanitizer onto their hands, or rub the sanitizer gel, your customer reconnects away from technology if only for a moment.  It truly brings them to the present.


And talk about a great gift that will take them a year to go through, that's a lot of logo views!  In fact for cold and flu season lasting up to six months you can bet your logo and phone number will be in their pocket or purse for quite a while.


Do you prefer unscented sanitizer?  We have that option as well here at Adco Marketing.  Finally, this under a dollar trade show giveaway fits the budget too.

Cannabis Dispensary Marketing

How best to market your cannabis medical marijuana dispensary?  Giving your customers fun promotional items with your phone number and website will maximize your repeat business sales.  A great way to advertise medical marijuana outlets or any hemp-based industry is with our marijuana leaf promotional items.   Whether it's a stress reliever, a pen shaped like the leaf, or a small tin for carrying around your product, let our designers combine this image or your own logo to showcase your products.

 Adco Marketing offers a variety of giveaways for medical marijuana dispensaries or clinics focusing on cancer treatment or holistic healing.  Differentiate yourselves in this market with promotional products.  Are you focused on medical benefits?  Perhaps your product helps people sleep (so give an eye pillow), or it gets pain away (give a massager), or it's just for recreation (give a frisbee or or toy)


We love this squeezie key tag in the shape of the leaf!  

Promote your marijuana dispensary by using personalized promotional items. Our best selling marijuana handout items for cannabis dispensaries are cigarette and joint lighters, custom printed T-shirts, embroidered sports caps and hemp bags and totes. Logo water bottles and custom imprinted backpacks are also popular customer giveaways at medical marijuana dispensaries. Both have a large imprint to display your logo along with a stock graphic of a marijuana leaf, joint, or cigarette.   Are you going to an outdoor cannabis convention?  We offer banners, table cloths and your customers will also appreciate receiving a pair of imprinted sunglasses with your clinic's name and phone number. 
Marijuana dispensary products are going to be a necessity in this crowded market.  Let Adco Marketing help you stand out from the crowd!  Call 888-332-ADCO for advice.
