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.

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!

How do you evaluate one of the top suppliers of promotional products in our industry? Best service, "check".  Great pricing, "check".  Unique ideas, "check".  Next question?  Oh right... On time delivery, "check".  Take Purchase orders?  "check".   Accept VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS? "check". 

Now that your list is checked off, let's get down to business.  Email us your event description and your budget.  Let us mockup ideas for you with your logo or event name.  We will remind you of "start to finish" preparation for that convention.  Let us help you make your own checklist!  


Table Cloths?  Six foot or eight foot?  Or maybe one that converts?

Napkins and Paper Plates for the cocktail hour or breakfast?

Custom Tote Bags - what kind?  Inexpensive?  Reusable?  Quality, thick messenger style bag?  Maybe a backpack is more appropriate?

Hospitality suite for top clients? - It's not just about the hotel food you serve, let's produce a custom blue tooth speaker, or your own branded Alexa, or high end custom mint tins or chocolate as a nice take home.

Volunteer apparel?  How will conventioners know which direction to go, who can help them?  Don't have the budget for t-shirts or polos?  How about caps, or branded arm sleeves?

Speaker gifts?  One piece minimums for awards and speaker gifts.  Just ask your sales person for ideas!

Custom note pads so your customers can take notes on what they learn at your conference?  We can insert agendas, tip in pages, floor maps and more!

How prepared are you for that annual conference?  Do you feel "stuck", having handed out the same items for years?  Let us impress your boss or committee.  We have been thinking ahead for more than 20 years.  Relax.  We've got this!

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.

5 Unique Swag Promotional Item Ideas

It's getting toward that time of year when new ideas are needed.  You've already handed out pens, power banks, mugs and sticky note pads.  Maybe it's time for some creativity!  We've seen a interest in tying phone apps to promotional items.  For example, have you ever handed out an umbrella that could tell you when it's going to rain?  Here at Adco Marketing we can add a hang tag, include the app for rain, and your logo pops up every time they use the app.


Idea One:  Reversible Umbrellas

Idea Two:  Mop Topper Fun Pens - a pen that cleans your screen, acts as a stylus and makes people smile.

Idea Three:  Full color blankets (go crazy with your logo!)  

Idea Four:  Hubs for cell phone and ipad connectivity.  (trust me your clients are tired of crawling under their desks, or running out of ports for their cell charging!)

Idea Five:  Blue tooth ear buds!  They are all the rage thanks to the new iphones.


Call us for more ideas, 415-927-2881, or 888-332-ADCO.
