We’ve all heard the saying, “April showers bring May flowers,” but what do May flowers bring? No, not pilgrims. May flowers mean it’s time for our list of the most popular promotional products of April!

In April the Cinch Up Drawstring Backpack took over as the number 1 most popular promo product, bumping the Round Stress Reliever down to second place. The Medium Eco-Friendly Non Woven Tote Bag maintained its position in the #3 slot.

There were shake-ups across the board on the rest of the list. The Collapsible Koozie Can Cooler, Rubberized Sunglasses, and Bic Clic Stic Pen all jumped up on the list, knocking the Small Eco-Friendly Non Woven Tote Bag down to #7 on the list. The Brain Stress Reliever also fell a couple spots to #8, and the Mood Stadium Cup got bumped down to #9.

Bringing up the end of the list we had to say goodbye to the Adhesive Sticky Notes that rounded out the list last month. In their place, our Custom Pencils took the #10 spot.

It’s been another great month for our bestsellers! Moving right along, let’s take a look at some up and coming products that are sure to wow your customers and expand your brand.

Well, these nifty koozies come with a handy loop that stores a bottle opener. BOOM. All of your partying essentials in one item! Make sure your company picnic, family reunion, or tailgating party goes without a hitch by ordering these great summer promo items.

Whether you’re headed to the beach or the pool, summer is the time to travel light. With our Lycra Mobile Device Pocket you can store your credit card, ID, and cash right on the back of your phone so you can leave your wallet and purse at home.

Now that it’s warming up most runners will be ditching their reflective jackets and coats in favor of tank tops. You can guarantee safety at night with our Safety Light Arm Band. This helpful item simply straps around your arm and lights up to ensure visibility in the dark. These are a great spring and summer promo item for gyms, colleges, and running clubs.

    My wife has one of the mobile device pockets and LOVES IT! And as a bonus for me, I’m not stuck holding her purse when we go out.

    • Alan

      I definitely see these mobile device pockets becoming very popular. I’ve seen a few people with them already, but I think it’s going to become very commonplace soon!

      • David

        I can definitely see the phone pocket getting crazy popular. It’s such a great idea since you won’t have to carry around a wallet + phone.

  2. Jay Hoffman

    Everyone should be buying these!


    Their customers will stare at them ALL DAY and it keeps your phone off your desk in case of coffee spills! They even fit phones (massive galaxy phones included) with Otterbox-style cases!

  3. AG (A.K.A. Myrtle)

    Top 10 for sure seems to be consistent with the calls I’ve received (obviously, LOL!!!). I’d also like to add for those looking for a nice grocery tote (at a VERY reasonable price) check out the Q38945 Jumbo Nonwoven Grocery Tote. Dollar for dollar one of the best overall values on the site in my personal opinion. The product video is pretty much bad ass on this item too 😉 Just sayin…

  4. Jenifer Elizabeth

    Honorable mention for these:


    Everyone can use an additional charger these days! Your customers will thank you 🙂

  5. Erin

    Great summer trend items… These are all sure to be some big sellers for the warm months ahead!

  6. Kat

    The Cinch Up Drawstring Backpack (Q8504) is always my “go to” suggestion when a customer is looking for an inexpensive, yet sturdy, backpack. I have MANY customers who reorder these month after month and year after year. They love them! Glad to see they are number 1 on the list!

  7. Kelly Bird

    These timeless 10 items are great and will probably continue to show up on the charts for years to come. If you are looking for something trend setting make sure you contact QLP to get some more ideas for your event. Use the website to chat or pick up the phone to talk with a LIVE sales rep who can guide you to some of the most popular new items that your customers will love!

  8. Bre

    Such a good idea for the Trend Alert! 🙂 The Rubberized Sunglasses are such a HIT for the summer months! Thanks for the great post!

  9. Bret Bonnet

    Wow, this is an AMAZING graphic. The ONLY thing that would make it better would be if it included an embed code or something to make sharing it super easy! 🙂

  10. Chase

    These would be my top picks too! I would say these are the most popular items that I have seen, and I highly suggest these items.

  11. Jon Cacioppo

    Once again, my favorite item to sell, the Grill + Cooler Set http://qualitylogoproducts.com/u/8bqydt/ does not make it on the list … at a minimum order of $112,000 its a tough sell, but the return on investment can be huge.

    Seriously though, summer must be on it’s way because I am selling those sunglasses as well as the Malibu Sunglasses (http://qualitylogoproducts.com/u/2dr6rx/ – special sale price of 1.42 each) by the truckload.

  12. Ashley

    I love this new Hat Trick Can Cooler Kit Item# Q54496. What a great summer promo item! Keeping the bottle opener attached to the cooler is very convenient. No more searching for where you left the opener or who’s pocket it ended up in! 🙂

  13. Keith

    This post is always useful for the customers who need promo items but are just unsure about what they want. It is always great to be able to show them what the hot items are to order to help them out with their decision making!

  14. Candace

    Excellent choices….although I’m now a HUGE FAN of the Fruit Infusion Tumblers!


    An excellent idea for tasty & healthy drinks for toddlers too:)

  15. Erik

    Best sellers are always a great go to when you need something popular and easy to give out, but I love these Trend Alert items for a little outside-of-the-box promoting. The Mobile Device Pocket is quickly becoming one of my favorites for tradeshows, inexpensive giveaways, and as a great mailer piece. Who doesn’t need one of these?!?! You just can’t go wrong in my mind.

  16. Rondell Caraos

    The Cinch Up Drawstring Backpack is #1 on the list for a reason! People LOVE them and they are for a very good price! The cool thing about these bags is if 1-4 colors for an imprint isn’t enough… it is offered with a FULL COLOR IMPRINT! What a great way to promote your company!

  17. Greg

    Top 10 for sure! I’m putting orders in for 1 or 2 of these items every day! Great products for any occasion!

  18. Chuck (Norris) Sullivan

    The Bic Clic Stic pen deserves to be in the top 10. QLP sells them at a great price, especially for a pen you can find in the retail market. The quality speaks for itself, there are a ton of color combinations, and a great imprint area on the barrel or the clip. Every time a customer asks me for a suggestion on a inexpensive pen, I go with the Bic Clic Stic.

  19. Nora

    We ordered can coozies last year for our company picnic, and they were a big hit. They work well on bottles, as well.

  20. Michael Wenger

    I still dig those full color imprint on the rubberized sunglasses:


    You’d think though that lip balm would make the list… protect yourself people!!

    Thanks for the up and up!

  21. Jaimie Smith

    These are definitely some great summer trends. As summer parties are being planned, everybody wants the flashy Rubberized sunglasses. The Mood Stadium Cup is a perfect party item too, great conversation starter. 🙂
