So there you have it – fifty of the most sought after promotional products in 2010! Bret Bonnet, co-owner of Quality Logo Products, was incredibly pleased with the selection of items and feels the list will make promo item shopping easier.

“We’re excited to share this list because it gives people a chance to see some of the hot trends in the promotional products industry this past year,” he said. “While this list doesn’t come close to including every top promo product we sell, we know our customers will love having such a variety of bestsellers all in one convenient place.”

Which of these popular promotional items is the perfect choice for YOU?


Bubba is the Quality Logo Products mascot. He may have started out as "just a stress ball," but he's come a long way since the company's launch in 2003. Bubba has been immortalized in numerous vector artwork designs for internal and external promotions, and you can see him change outfits on the Quality Logo Products homepage whenever a holiday rolls around. Oh, and he thinks pants are for the birds. You can connect with Bubba on

    This is a terrific list of promo items! There are so many good ones to choose from…and there’s no question of quality. I know I use my Spirit Tumbler and Stainless Steel Trip Mug every single day, and they’re still as good as new. 🙂

    I wonder which stress ball shapes would have made the list if there was a Stress Reliever category?

  2. Scooby DOO!

    I have to say that the mood products, especially the pencils were a hit with . It’s great to see such a low cost item have such a profound impact on cookie sales which is only eclipsed by what that money does for scouts across the country. If you need ideas that will motivate and generate, seek the professionals at QLP!

  3. Becky Gatch

    I agree with Jill- where are the stress balls? And I am sooo bummer b/c I took my Spirit Tumbler home to wash it and forgot it today. I am so sad- it is a necessary desk accessory that I can’t live without!

  4. Bret Bonnet

    The stress ball category of products was intentionally omitted from our list of the top 50 promotional items for 2010 because there were just to many to include in the list… there was a three way tie for first place between the brain shape, baseball shape, and classic round stress ball so we didn’t feel right including twelve stress balls (3 1st place + 9 others) and only 10 products in the other product categories.

    I’ll bet $100.00 though, that come 2011, the mood color changing stress balls will be the CLEAR #1 winner in the stress balls category so we’ll be sure to include this product category next year.

    Great post Jill both visually and content wise.

    Those multi-colored Pilsner Glasses are pretty nifty. I’m a fan of decent micro-beers, so I could always use affordable glassware. and those plain-but-reliable Budget Coffee Mugs are right up my alley too. What can I say? I’m an ol’-fashioned guy, and I like to enjoy my morning brew the ol’-fashioned way–mug in hand! Those fancy-dancy stainless steel contraptions the city-folk are all using these days just ain’t for me.

  6. Stantz

    I know there have definitely a lot of customers ordering these products, especially the Mood Color Changing Pencil!

    I agree that mood stress balls will be a top seller in the near future! 😉
