Trend Alert! Fun, New Promotional Products Straight from ASI Chicago

Are you in the market for a trendy, fun promotional item? Perhaps you’ve used cap pens and stress balls in the past, but now you want to get a little bit bolder with your giveaway items.

Fear not, friends.

As you know, a bunch of us from Quality Logo Products went to ASI Chicago this year. We strolled up and down each and every aisle scouting out interesting and new promo items.

But don’t just take my word for it; our media team was on the scene to document these cool, best-selling products. Check out what the vendors themselves had to say about the hottest promo products this year.

Personalized Pens

If one thing’s clear, promotional pens will never go out of style! Their compact size and frequent use makes them great for any brand or business, no matter what your budget is. Stylus pens will be great for the growing popular of smartphone users!

The pens featured in the video can be found here: Curvaceous Ballpoint Stylus Pen, Metallic Curvaceous Ballpoint Stylus Pen, Sleek Stick Pen, Imperial Click Pen, Illuma Pen, and Smartphone Stylus Pen.

Promotional Drinkware

Between healthier lifestyles and a movement to buy more Earth-friendly products, drinkware is extremely popular this year. If you haven’t passed out some imprinted water bottles, it’s time to give it a try. Acrylic tumblers are great for offices and stadium cups are must-haves for company picnics and outdoor events.

The drinkware featured in the video can be found here: Double Wall Acrylic Tumbler with Dome Lid and Straw, Flip Top Freedom Tumbler (18 Oz.), Flat Foldable Bottle (20 Oz.), Sun Fun Stadium Cup (17 Oz.), and Silipint Silicone Tumbler (16 Oz.).

Custom Lunch Products

Eat healthier and save money when you start bringing your lunch to work! Even better, give your employees and customers a custom lunch container with your company logo on it. These items will be used every single day and will make your brand the hero of better eating.

The lunch products featured in the video can be found here: Cereal On The Go (12 Oz.), Snack On The Go, Lunch Pod, 3 Piece Salad Shaker Set, and 3 Section Lunch Container.

Additionally, we heard two phrases at almost every single booth we visited: “made in America” and “made of recycled materials.”

American-made products and recycled materials have been growing in popularity over the past couple of years, but now bought vendors and consumers are interested in items that directly affect their country. End users are also being more selective of the products they use.

Luckily, we carry a whole bunch of promo items that fit those qualifications.

Customizable Sports Bottle (28 Oz.) – These colorful reusable PET bottles are made in the USA, BPA-free, and hold an unreal 28 ounces of liquid. They’re great for any brand and save tons of water bottles from landfills!

Poly-Pure Travel Bottle (27 Oz.) – One of my favorite water bottles, this bottle is made of food-safe PETE which is BPA-free and made of recycled plastic. This American-made bottle comes in many fun colors and is recyclable itself!
