Adco Marketing Promotional Items and Products

Are businesses ordering promotional products during a pandemic? Yes. What and Why? We’re glad you asked…

Evolution of Swag

People usually think of keychains, tote bags, shirts and the like when considering a promotional product. While those are all indeed a big part of the business there are a million and one other items you may not normally associate with corporate “swag.” These are crazy times and our industry has changed and evolved to meet the current needs.

Protect the Zombies

Our top moving items at present are Personal Protection Equipment. We have gloves, facemasks, face shields, PPE Kits, thermometers, social distancing floor stickers, hand sanitizer and anything else you need to keep your valued employees safe.

We have provided these necessary supplies to hospitals, banks, schools, and even for the crew and cast a popular zombie tv series. (Yes, THAT one!) 

We have also donated hundreds of masks to our local Marin community, specifically for at risk families. Adco Marketing is local family business and we are honored to help keep our community safe. 

You touch it, you own it. 

We all know it’s important to be careful with what we touch and that’s why pens and writing instruments are in big demand. Gone are the days of pens on chains attached to counters. Now businesses are providing clients with pens to use for signing receipts and documents that leave with the customer. This is a good thing for giving your business lots of repeat exposure. Your logo on a pen will travel far and be seen often. It’s like the Dr. Suess book “Oh, the places you’ll go!” 

Home Sweet Work 

So many of us are working remotely and it’s more important than ever for businesses to keep connected and take care of their employees. This can be as simple as providing them with office supplies like our desk in box kit or flags and sticky notes to getting a little more creative with Zoom happy hours.



Our De-stress Express Kit or a relaxing aromatherapy humidifier. A water bottle to make sure they stay hydrated and an avocado slicer for healthy lunchtime prep are little gestures that will make a big impact to let your employees know they matter. 

Next time…. 

Backyard Camp outs, Family Movie Nights, Rediscovering Outside, Happy Pets and other Silver Linings of a Worldwide Pandemic.

We are pleased to help out during this time going beyond our normal promotional product offerings.  We have millions of masks in stock here in the US ready to ship. Are you off to the grocery store?  Heading back to work as we start to open up again?  Protect yourself but more importantly keep from spreading to others by wearing a mask for all outdoor activities.  The CDC advises all Americans to wear masks.

What am I going to wear?

The number one question facing all of us each morning, (yes even those with casual offices) is what to wear!  At Adco Marketing we absolutely have the perfect corporate apparel options.  

Perhaps a nice cozy sweatshirt with a hood, or an embroidered Nike polo, or just a soft printed t-shirt will suffice as your corporate uniform for the day.  Call 888-332-ADCO and we will walk you through even more options!


Call us or flip through our catalog:

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.

What is trending in bags

Need retail fashion bags?  How about a conference bag with a little style?  Looks like here is what in:


Vintage inspired shapes are big including flap shoulder bags with tailored handles.  The textured leathers such as stamped croc, python and other faux materials.  Boutique bags that are laminated Lu Lu Lemon style are also seeing an increase in sales on the retail side as well as the convention side of bag purchases.


Geometric shapes are emerging as the newest trend including a circular bag, globe shape and even trapezoid shapes.


Handbags offering practical function such as ipad carriers, are always in the news.


And finally yes fanny packs are back.  What goes around comes around (of course with a few extra inches "around" for those of us aging in the middle body...)


So grab your custom brightly colored tote bags from Adco Marketing and hit the trade show scene in style!  Think lime green and tangerine bags.  Give Adco Marketing a call at 888-322-ADCO to get our expert trending bag advice!

Promotional Marketing Dreams

We get it.  Your company wants marketing items.  Creative, unique, high quality, and budget priced.  Staring wistfully at a page full of power banks, and another of colorful copper walled tumblers, you sigh and click on the javalina pen, and the white ceramic mug.  But wait!  Our design team is ready to advise you on other options in whatever price range you need for your events and client marketing gifts.  If you still order the pen and mug, let us play with your art, come up with a creative tag line, or perhaps a city scape at the bottom to jazz up even the most budget of products.  Our under a dollar promotional items range from cell phone wallets and ice packs to jar openers and cell phone holders. 


Wait!  A bad dream a week later...  It's the last moment and you need a custom table cloth for the trade show booth, oh and do we carry custom napkins for that receiption you are hosting?  

We get it.  Budgets open up, event dates change, shipping locations change, logos change, taglines change - it's that kind of world.  You need a flexible marketing ideas type of company that rolls with the punches right?  Call us, the experts who have tested all the items on our site and offer many more not shown.
