Quality Logo Products Stress Balls Featured on NBC’s ‘The Office’

“I’ll take my free stress ball now.” Those words were uttered by Holly Flax, a character from NBC’s hit sitcom “The Office,” when the episode aired on February 3, 2011. Well, the stress ball she received AND the small bin of stress balls on the table next to her were sold by our very own Kat!

You can check out the stress balls for yourself by going to NBC’s website and watching the episode called “The Search” (the scene occurs from 13:10 – 13:37). The globe-shaped stress balls (like the one Holly grabs) and the cell phone stress balls you see inside the clear container on the table were sold by Quality Logo Products. Or, if you don’t have time to watch it, you can catch a glimpse from the screenshots below. You can click each photo for an enlarged view:

Holly apparently wanted a free stress ball badly enough to gave a fake name (Fanny Smellmore) and pretend to change her cell phone plan. Can you really blame her? I mean, just look at those irresistibly-squishy stress relievers!

Since the vast majority of the Quality Logo Products staff is obsessed with “The Office,” we can’t think of a higher honor than having promotional products from our catalog featured on the show! All of us are excited about it and we can’t stop watching the episode in question. Just look at our little Earth Stress Relievers and Cell Phone Stress Balls…all grown up and on TV! Be sure to check out the picture of Bubba that’s in this post, too: he’s pictured with an actual cell phone stress ball from the show that’s branded with the “Star Cellular” logo!

See, you just can’t get away from promotional products – they’re even used as crucial props for some of our favorite shows and movies. What’s your favorite TV show or movie promo item?

    Aren’t these the same globe stress balls that the cat liked a few posts back?

      They sure are! Apparently, Globe Stress Relievers appeal to all ages, genders, and species! ;)

    High five team!! Kudos Kat!

    That is so cool! And “The Office,” of all shows! It’s kinda weird that so many of us here love that show and are now able to see our business contribute to its success.

    P.S. Should be interesting near the end of the season.

    I saw this episode and laughed so hard at that scene. I had no idea that Kat was involved – even funnier now! Good job Kat :)

    Definitely goes to show promotional items are not ONLY used for advertising! I had a lot of fun with this one and the design team/producers that I dealt with were great to work with! It’s not every day you answer the phone and the voice on the other end says “Hi, I’m calling from NBC’s The Office”. :)

    This was a great episode.

    I think we should have a caption contest for the four photos included in this post.

    …. Thank Goodness these stress balls weren’t printed with a Saber brand printer, Lord knows how poor the imprint quality would have been otherwise.

    Super cool!

    Soooo….this practically makes all of us famous, right?

    This was sooooo awesome, I almost didn’t believe it when I heard it. Freaking amazing! :)

    Haha that’s awesome! I’m honored to have our products appear on such a HUGE show. I hope our products get another chance to make a brief cameo again soon! :)
