Where the heck did September go? It doesn’t seem like it’s been a full month since our previous bestselling promo items list!
If time truly does fly when we’re having fun, then QLP must be having more fun than ever. Here’s what’s been going on behind the scenes since the last time we saw each other. (Hint: Back to school giveaways have been seriously popular lately, and one look at this month’s list should give that away!)
Best-Selling Promo Items of September 2012:
If that Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack (#1) doesn’t get kicked off its throne soon, we’re going to have a crazy streak going! It held steady in the top spot even though Round Stress Relievers (#2) jumped up two spots and Atlas Nonwoven Grocery Totes (#3) jumped up three spots since last month. In a surprising turn of events, our Medium Eco-Friendly Non Woven Tote Bags (#4) moved up a whopping FIVE spots from August’s rankings to prove they’re still worthy contenders.
We also had a few comeback kids this month, with the Custom Pencils (#6), Mood Color Changing Pencils (#8), and Santa Fe Aluminum Water Bottles (#10) showing their pretty faces after dropping from the list for a bit. Also, Collapsible Koozie Can Coolers (#5) and Mood Stadium Cups (#7) decided to keep their numbers consistent, but the Promotional Stadium Cups (#9) got served with one spot lower than the last list.
These products are showing great promise from the sidelines and may pop up on this list soon:
As I’m typing this with my yellow foam fingers, a chorus of coughs and sneezes rings through the Quality Logo Products office. Does that sound like your workplace? It’s the season for feeling under the weather, so that’s why we weren’t shocked to see Sani-Mist Pocket Sprayers climbing up the trend list this month. If everyone had their own sanitizer, then maybe colds wouldn’t get so out of hand!
Speaking of hands, Small Football Squeezies also earned a place on our list this time. Football is in full swing until the beginning of next year, and these stress relievers have been flying off the shelves for everything from homecomings to little league sponsorships. And we can’t forget about the reliable Storm Pen, either. We’d love to see these bright retractable pens crack the top 10 soon, because they’re one of our favorite promo items!
That’s all we’ve got, folks. Until next time, keep on keepin’ on!
