Top Ten New & Innovative Promotional Products For 2011

I just returned from the 2011 PPAI Expo, which is the largest annual trade show in the promotional products industry.  Promotional product suppliers and manufacturers from all over the world exhibit their promotional products and wearables.  I saw thousands of imprinted promotional products and imprintable wearables over the last few days, and I've narrowed them down to give you my list of "the best of the best."  Here are our top 10 picks for the best new and innovative promotional products for 2011, in no particular order:

1. Custom Printed Enclave 5-in-1™ ipad Case by Brenthaven®:

This custom imprinted ipad case is five functions in one case.  This is the best custom printed ipad cover or sleeve I've seen to date.  You can do everything with it!  Hardshell protection, viewing stand, strap attachment system, typing stand and EZ-Grip handle system, all in one sleek design.
2. Custom EyeBlack® Appliques:

 EyeBlack® custom appliques are a great promotional giveaway for fans and game sponsors, and can be combined with a team schedule for a fun and useful promotion.  Perfect for High Schools and Colleges to generate pride and excitement for their sports teams.

3. The Expobox® Custom Printed Portable Trade Show Box:

 Here's a great new way to carry trade show materials like catalogs, samples, brochures and the like.  There's a much larger advertising area available with these than imprinted totes and lots more storage room to boot.  Plus, the wheel/handle transport system easily slides off and the box can be shipped as is through UPS or FedEx.  It's a billboard on wheels!

4. Imprinted Scented Balls:

These scented imprinted fresheners are designed to freshen shoes, gym bags, lockers or anywhere else tough odors linger.  A cool twist on the ordinary air freshener.

5. Imprinted Neoprene Luggage Spotter:
These imprinted neoprene luggage spotters have two great features.  First,  they hold your luggage handles together.  Second, they come in seven bold colors so that you can easily spot and grab your luggage as it comes around the carousel.  An ideal giveaway for your company's employees who travel frequently.

6. The Mobigrip® Custom Printed Electronic Device Grip:

Stick this device leash to your cell phone, camera, ipad or any of your other digital devices to prevent you from dropping them.  These are full color custom grips for easier texting, easier photos, and easier gripping.

7. Fossa Apparel® Waffle Fleece:

 The thin waffle texture of these fleece jackets is very soft to the touch and unlike anything I've seen.  You need to feel it to get the full effect.  Ask us about samples if you're interested.

8. The h2go® ss hydra Imprinted Sports Bottle:
This imprinted stainless steel sports bottle comes with a built-in pop-out straw.  Made by ETS Express- the leading supplier of innovative drinkware in the promotional products industry.  Durable and stylish.

9. Custom Printed H2O 2 Go Reusable Collapsible Water Bottles:

These BPA free imprinted water bottles fold flat for easy storage and travel.  Attached carabiner and removable cap for easy cleaning.  Dishwasher and freezer safe.

10. Premium Webbing Wristbands:

A new alternative to the everyday silcone wristbands and awareness bracelets, these custom woven bracelets are comfortable and sharp looking.  My bet is that this type of wristband will replace the silicone variety in popularity over the next year or so.
