Month after month, mood color-changing items make an appearance on our top-selling products lists.

It’s easy to understand their appeal; what’s not to like about a pencil or stadium cup that changes color? That’s awesome!

Color-changing items also give your clients extra incentive to hold on to your imprinted stress balls or reuse your branded stadium cups.

So whether you’re a promo products veteran looking to branch out from your regular items, or a first-time user who wants to generate a ton of word-of-mouth, then give one of these exciting color-changing items a try!

School/Office Supplies

Shadow Pencil: Coolest of the cool

My current favorite is the Shadow Pencil. This personalized pencil is a fresh new take on our classic Color Changing Pencil. Instead of changing from one color to another, this pencil changes from black to neon colors. Simply hold in your hand and watch the color change. For even more options, try a Paw Print, Ribbon, or Splash color-changing pencil. The tiny erasers on the end of a pencil are never big enough, so why not include an awesome Mood Eraser with your mood pencils to make sure your customers continue to enjoy the color change, long after the pencil’s eraser is gone.

If you’re just more of a pen person, we also carry the Mood Sham Click Pen. Pens and pencils are by far the most useful color-changing items because they will be used just about every day.

Last, but not least, is the exciting wooden Mood Ruler. Yes, I just put “exciting” and “ruler” in the same sentence. I promise that you’ve never had fun drawing a line until you’ve drawn a line with one of these. Even better? They come in both 6 inch and 12 inch sizes.

Stress Balls

Mood Stress Key Chain: Cuteness to go

One of our best-selling items is the Mood Smiley Face Stress Ball. With his little grin and color-changing action, it’s impossible to resist giving him a little squeeze. That’s why I love that he also comes in key chain form. Your clients will slip him on their keys and squeeze him when traffic gets ridiculous.

Not cute enough? I agree. That’s why there’s also the Smilin’ Mood Stress Dude. Between his thumbs-up, can-do attitude and his fuzzy hair, you’ll have a stress reliever that customers of all ages will fawn over.

Smiley faces not your thing? No problem, we also have Mood Star Key Chains that are perfect for schools, educational programs, and sports teams. School, club, local, and professional football fans would get a kick out the Mood Stress Football.


Question: What kind of party doesn’t have color-changing drinkware?

Answer: Not a party I want to be at.

Mood Stadium Cup: Party essential

I’m endlessly amused by color-shifting drinkware, and I know that I’m not alone here. Our Mood Stadium Cup is consistently on our top 10 lists. The sun-changing Sun Fun Stadium Cup is new on the scene, but I imagine that it will become equally popular.

Depending on the kind of party, company picnic, or family reunion you’re throwing, you may prefer the Mood Beer Stein or the in-trend Plastic Mason Jar with Mood Straw.

For your clients that would rather hike through the wilderness or hit the gym, they can enjoy the color-changing action: the Mood Cycle Bottle changes with cold liquid. Also, the Sun Fun Cycle Bottle changes with UV light, so it’s a perfect companion for those that work out or play sports in the sun.

Double Wall Mood Tumbler: Can’t handle the awesome

But by far, my favorite color-changing drinkware is the Double Wall Mood Tumbler. Polypropylene tumblers like these are extremely popular and will be used frequently at home and the office. And since your tumbler changes color with water, tea, and other cold drinks, you can bet that your current and prospective clients will choose this reusable tumbler over all other reusable water bottles.

If for some reason you don’t want mood cups, or have already ordered awesome drinkware that unfortunately doesn’t change color, there are still ways to keep the mood at your party. If you’re throwing a house party where people will be sitting or setting their drink down on your tables or counters, protect your wood furniture and wow your guests at the same time with Mood Coasters. If your guests will be walking around with their glasses and sipping mid-conversation, order Mood Straws to guests can take the color change with them.

If there will be ice cream at your party (or really anything you can eat with a spoon) order yourself and your guests some Mood Spoons to bring color to every bite.

Opting for mood giveaways is a great way to bring new and renewed interest to your brand. Imagine the envy your competitors will feel when they see your color-changing pens snatched up like hot cakes as their regular old click pens sit neglected.
