custom backpacksHave you ever considered just what type of item you should choose as a promotional item, or is it your habit to just glance through a catalog until something catches your eye? The best promotional items are those which leave a positive impression on the recipient – a thoughtful gift that makes them smile is always a good choice. The best items are those that get continuous use, so that your advertising dollar goes further and reaches the maximum number of people.

Some products are most suitable for large giveaways such as conventions. Others work best when used to reward a loyal customer or employee, or to celebrate a grand opening or special event. One excellent selection of this type of product is the High Sierra Impact Daypack.

This backpack has everything a consumer might hope for. It has a large 14” x 19” size to provide plenty of carrying space; a large front-load main compartment, and a pocket with molded headphone port so you can listen to music on your mobile device. There is a large gusseted front pocket for accessories, and an organizer with pen pockets and key fob. Add to this a contoured, padded shoulder strap with a handy cell phone pocket.. There are two silver grommets in the main compartment for air circulation, and even a mesh water bottle pocket. Add to all of this a 3” x 3” area for your imprint, and what better item to use to promote your company? Any employee or client will be happy and grateful to receive this as a gift, and will reward you by carrying it and providing you with years of advertising.

This backpack also makes a great choice as a door prize or part of a larger gift bundle at a tradeshow, convention or seminar. Imagine filling it with other useful promotional items such as pens, pencils and notebooks? Taking part in a tradeshow is one thing; making sure that people come to your booth is another. Having an item such as the High Sierra Impact Daypack as a prize will draw in plenty of traffic for you, and the winner carrying away his prize will cause others to ask where it came from.

It’s like my pappy always told me: “Treat women with respect, sun tans are earned, not bought, and make sure you always get the most out of your promotional items by choosing a product that will draw attention!”

Budget Custom Backpack

custom backpacksBackpacks, which were once thought of as merely a camper and hikers tool, are now an everyday sight about town. Schoolchildren use them for books; they carry everything from laptops to clothes and lunches! No longer are they plain and utilitarian – now we find them in all different styles, materials, and price ranges. You can select a high end computer bag, or an inexpensive version such as the Budget Backpack, and still be assured of getting a quality product.

This simple and durable backpack is made of 210D polyester with an adjustable web shoulder strap and carrying handle.

The bright color choices help to make it a favorite choice, the generous size means that it can carry whatever you need in comfort, and the solid construction lets you know that your cargo is safe and secure!

Backpacks make great promotional gifts, as they have a large imprint area to display your logo, and are seen so many different places. You can’t help but get great exposure and help improve your image when you give them out. However, many businesses hesitate to use backpacks because of their costs – they feel that the price is prohibitive for any large scale giveaway. This is, of course, true of some of the high end cases and backpacks. The Budget Backpack, however, means that you can combine low cost and high visibility. The imprint area for your logo is a large 7” x 3”, which makes it readily visible from a distance. You can select a color scheme which makes your image stand out even more, such as a black image on a bright pink backpack, or a white image on a black backpack.

Every item that you select for a promotional campaign needs to make a lasting impression. If you want people to remember the name of an advertiser, you need to make that impression. When you want to make sure that you are generating a high ROI, choosing a budget backpack can make the difference.

Custom Logo Pretzels

custom promotional pretzelsWhen you think of promotional pretzels, what do you picture? Regular knot-like pretzels, pretzel sticks, soft pretzels, giant pretzels, chocolate-covered pretzels, or something entirely different?

Although pretzels were not introduced into North America until the 19th century, when German immigrants known as Pennsylvania Dutch began producing them here, they were actually originated in about 610 A.D. by Christian monks. Thought to have been created as “pretiola” or “little rewards” for children who learned their prayers, the strips of intertwined dough are believed to resemble arms crossed across the chest in prayer. The large German population in Pennsylvania contributed to it being considered the birthplace of the American pretzel industry, and where 80% of the pretzel production is located. There is even a private Pretzel Museum located in Pennsylvania, as well as a National Pretzel Day celebrated on April 26!
