10 Most Popular Promotional Products of August 2015
Get ready, ladies and gentlemen. It’s almost Labor Day, so you know what that means: the rest of the year is going to go faster than a Round Stress Reliever rolling down a staircase!
Speaking of the Round Stress Reliever, it’s been a few months since we last saw it at the top of QLP’s monthly bestseller list. Were the Rubberized Sunglasses able to hang on to the top spot for one more month? Or did one of QLP’s other customer favorites take first place in August?
Let’s find out! Here are QLP’s 10 bestselling promotional products for August 2015:
Whoa, way to come back and cinch the top spot, Cinch Up Drawstring Backpack! School has started up again, so we weren’t surprised to see this backpack climb high, along with our Custom Pencils in 3rd place. But don’t count out the Round Stress Reliever. It’s not that big a jump from the 4th place spot to the 1st!
I guess this is when we start to say goodbye to summer, which means I’ll have to find a tanning lotion that’ll turn me polyurethane yellow instead of orange. But I think it also means that we might say goodbye soon to our summer staples, the Rubberized Sunglasses (which slipped to 2nd place in August) and our Promotional Lip Balm (which fell to 10th). Hope I’m wrong. I’d love to see them stick around (along with the nice weather)!
It’s no surprise seeing the Collapsible Koozie Can Cooler and the small and medium Eco-Friendly Non Woven Tote Bags. What were surprises were the Satin Pen in 7th place and the 3M Silicon Smart Wallet Cell Phone Card Holder (phew, what a mouthful) in 9th. Both of these products are brand new to the top 10! They’re great for just about any customer, though, so I hope we’ll be seeing them a lot more.
And maybe we’ll see other new products next month, too! But you and I will have to wait and see. For now, it’s time for…
The QLP Monthly Trend Alert!
This month, we’re taking a look at items that items that will help your customers enjoy what we hope will be some nice fall weather (I know, I can hear everyone else in the Chicago area laughing, too): the Glow Sports Bottle, customized EOS Lip Balm, and the Color Pop Suction Bound JournalBook.
A lot of runners make the most of the summer months, but let’s face it: it gets hot outside during the summer. Rainy and humid, too, depending on where you live. Fall is a great time to go running, and with the 16-ounce Glow Sports Bottle, your clients can enjoy those early evening jogs a little more, even when the sun starts setting early. This plastic water bottle is great for nighttime fun runs; it’s also sure to be a favorite for kids when fall sports leagues start up.
I’m a stress ball, so I’m naturally beautiful. However, I hear a lot of the humans around the offices talk about getting chapped lips after they’ve been walking outside. I’ve also been hearing a lot of them talk about these EOS Lip Balms lately, so I think it’s pretty neat that now you can customize these little round containers with your own logo. Plus, I think the shape of them is really stylish and smart, a fact that has nothing to do at all with the shape of my own smiley-faced head.
And then there’s the Color Pop Suction Bound JournalBook. You know, phone stands and phone holders have become really big sellers in the world of promo products, so I guess it was only a matter of time before everything became a phone holder. (I’m still waiting for a coffee mug/phone stand combo myself—can we make it happen, guys?) But we think the Color Pop Suction Bound JournalBook is great for students, teachers, and other writers who like taking notes by hand… and then doing everything else on their phones, the way everyone else does. Don’t forget that phone at home!
