Previously, you saw the bestselling promotional products of February 2012. In the natural progression of things, it’s time to reveal March’s top products in today’s blog post.

Are you ready for what we’ve got in store for you? Read on…

Top 10 Promotional Items of March 2012:

HIGHLIGHTS: Those round stress balls (#1) still refuse to move from the top spot, although they’re hanging on by a thread this time around. And could it be that our personalized aluminum water bottles (#4) were finally knocked down a peg or two? That’s no trick of the eye — the colorful drawstring backpacks (#2) and adhesive note pads (#3) kicked butt last month! The color changing pencils (#5) and small nonwoven totes (#6) jumped a bit, while the medium nonwoven totes (#8) and collapsible koozies (#9) fell slightly. And last but not least, our Bic Clic Stic Pens (#7) and mood stadium cups (#10) made a righteous comeback onto the list.

So, now that you’re all caught up on March 2012’s bestselling promotional products, we’ll push forward to The QLP Movers and Shakers section. We’ve spotted some up-and-comers, so watch these items carefully. No analysis necessary — we’ve done all the work for you!

These promotional items climbed higher last month, but didn’t make it into the top 10:

Ah, yes — it was only a matter of time before the Earth stress balls found their way into the trends section! Earth Day is coming up on April 22, which means there’s ample opportunity for giveaways. The Cosmic Click Pens were put on closeout recently, so they’ve experienced a huge jump in sales due to the blowout pricing. And finally, the Tri-Color Sports Packs edged into the “must-watch” section — these are on sale through the end of April 2012, so don’t wait to snag these if they tickle your fancy!

    Wow, I didn’t think that the Alpine Aluminum Water Bottles would see such an upset! I’m glad to see that the Tri-Color Sport Packs are on the move – they are way cooler than the Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpacks!!

    I can’t wait to see how April does! 🙂

  2. Amy Swanson

    Good call on the ‘Earth Stress Reliever’ trend, with Earth Day coming up in a few short weeks 🙂 I’ll be curious to see if anything is knocked off the list in April or what shifts occur!

  3. Jaimie Smith

    Getting to be that time of year where Koozies and Stadium Cups are a necessity!

    Still a fan of the mood changing items. 🙂

    Woo! Mood Stadium Cups ROCK!!! Glad to see ’em on the list again, and I love the Tri-Color Sports Pack. I think they are going to be a big seller this summer, they are just too cool to pass up.

  5. Rachel

    Hooray for the Earth Stress Ball! I was wondering if an Earth Day-themed promo item would be there when I scrolled down, and I was not disappointed. Thanks for keeping us up-to-date, Bubba! 🙂

    I see the mood stadium cups having an unexpected hike up the list with the warmer weather coming to stay. I know being outside in a Chicago summer without a cup with a cool drink is against the law! Or it should be! Although the Cinch-Up Drawstring Backpack will always hold the #1 place in my heart. Its my version of a very handy diaper bag! 🙂
