Better Safe Than Sorry!

hardhatman

June is National Safety Month sponsored by the National Safety Council.  They are encouraging everyone to improve their safety practices in the workplace, at home and in the community.  Small safety precautions in your everyday life can make a huge impact on decreasing the number of injuries and deaths that occur each year.

Many companies take National Safety Month as an opportunity to promote their workplace safety guidelines for the whole year.  Incorporating imprinted safety promotional products into your safety presentation is a great way to provide valuable information without losing your employees’ interest. Kick off the month with a fun imprinted giveaway item for all your employees that shows you care about their safety, like the Talking Safety Stress Reliever.    The safety stress reliever says, “Remember, safety is our #1 goal.  So smile, be safe and enjoy your day!” when squeezed.  You’ll be surprised how an inexpensive, but unique promotional item will get the whole company excited for the month-long celebration.

A useful item to hand out to your employees to promote safety is a flashlight imprinted with your company logo.  Everyone can use a flashlight whether they keep it in their car, at their desk or at home;  there are many times when a flashlight can shed some light on an otherwise dangerous situation.

Remember, promoting your corporate safety guidelines doesn’t have to be boring…  spice it up with unique safety promotional items!

Hittin’ the Pool

pool promotional productsMost schools are out and summer is well underway. The local pools are packed with kids and those trying to get rid of their pale winter skin. I spent the past weekend laying by my friend’s pool, bronzing myself and trying to stay hydrated in this Atlanta heat. There were a couple of promotional products that I brought along with me that I could not have done without. First and foremost I have to have good music playing while I’m laying out, so portable promotional speakers to connect to my iPod were a must. The next essential was my Pinnacle branded collapsible cooler filled with refreshments and snacks. And lastly, my new favorite promotional product for this summer the Personal Mister, which is a plastic bottle you fill with ice cold water and with a click of a button produces an ultra fine cooling mist. This product is heaven… it was wonderful to have at the pool, but would be great for the beach, amusement parks, and sporting events too!

Summer is a great season to give out unique and useful promotional products to your clients. Everyone is outside enjoying the good weather and those smart marketers are taking this opportunity to brand themselves with promotional items for outdoor events this summer.

What is Your Favorite Candy?

jellybeans

From jelly beans and runts to gumballs and gummi worms, everyone has a favorite candy they indulge in once in awhile. June is National Candy Month… I know what you’re thinking: it sounds like a made up holiday, but it’s not. I think they have a month, week or day for everything, but this one I don’t mind celebrating! For most people, candy brings up many great memories from childhood. Remember when you saved up all your money to run down to the local store and buy a candy bar or sugary snack? Candy is a sweet treat that almost everyone enjoys; I know in our office the Starburst jar is always running low by the end of the week.

As the old saying goes, the way to your heart is through your stomach. Treat your clients to customized promotional candy from imprinted gumpaks and custom mint tins to a longer lasting promotional candy item, like the desktop jelly bean tin filled with jelly beans in your corporate colors. Custom candy is a great promotional item to use as a leave behind at a sales call, for thank you gifts, as well as corporate holiday gifts. You’ll be surprised that your clients will remember your tasty generosity long after the candy is gone.

Here Come the Brides!

 

cuttlefishI’m sure you all feel it in the air. Wedding season is upon us. (But I suppose I could be a little biased as I’m getting married in a week!) As we enter into June, it’s the perfect time to wrap up those last minute details before the big day.

Have a little extra money in that wedding budget? Custom promotional koozies are a great idea for your wedding showers, rehearsal dinners and even the main event. Koozies are a budget friendly way to give your guests a reminder of the event as well as a practical gift. And keep in mind, even if you’ve waited till the last minute to order, Pinnacle Promotions has thousands of products available in 24 hours or less!

Want something special for your family and close friends? How about a custom printed t-shirt? Or do what I’m doing and give customized promotional tote bags to your out of town guests. Print the bags and fill them up with personalized snacks, bags of chips or pretzels and bottled water. It’s a nice and practical way to give your guests some much needed munchies as well as a cute bag they can use again and again.

Brides, wedding planners, mothers and wedding venues can all take advantage of the budget-friendly products that are available now. Have fun with your event and make it even more memorable with printed favors and gifts!

“Say Cheese!”

 

May is National Photography Month! There is no better time than the present to start documenting and preserving your most treasured memories. The old adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” says it all: whether they are goofy, sentimental, or historical in nature, photos capture a moment in time that can never be repeated.

As a gift or giveaway, cameras are a valuable piece of equipment for recording special events and occurrences, and custom imprinted cameras can integrate your company’s name or logo into the photographer’s memories for years to come. Digital frames are another creative gift idea, as they incorporate cutting edge technology with a thoughtful, personalized item.

For more traditional ways to store and organize photographs, photo albums or picture frames turn timeless snapshots into pieces of art.

Don’t forget to “Say Cheese!” and smile for the camera over the next few days in honor of National Photography Month!

May Showers, But Where Are The Flowers?

1_growearth_lrg1

I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” But as we near the end of May and the showers keep on coming, it’s easy to forget how nice those flowers and the newly emerging greenery can be.

While the rain is much needed and a great relief to the drought the South has been dealing with for the past few years, it can get a bit gloomy after awhile.

If you’re anything like me and are missing those sunny afternoons, do what I’ve done and bring a little Spring to your desktop! Grow-Cups are perfect sized plants you can grow at your desk. Choose from different seed types and actually garden while you work. The cups themselves can be completely customized with your artwork or you can choose from several stock designs. And for just a hair over $2, you can’t beat the value!

Add a little green to your desk and brighten up these rainy Spring days with living promotional products.

Celebrate Memorial Day!

 

beach itemsThis weekend, take a moment to reflect on the true reason for Memorial Day’s existence. Although we often associate the holiday with a long weekend or the Indianapolis 500, Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for American soldiers who gave their lives for our country. As you set off on trips to the beach or lake, pause to consider the people who are the underlying cause for this national holiday. Our homeland is fortunate to have such dedicated servicemen and women protecting our honor.

Despite the solemn nature of Memorial Day, a long weekend is always reason to celebrate! Employees or customers can enjoy beach-themed goodies all summer long, and we suggest stuffing gift bags with necessities from our Beach Items category.
Fillers like Frisbees offer fun for the whole family, and Sunscreen & Suncare Kits will help prevent nasty sunburns.

This Memorial Day, have fun and stay safe, but most importantly, give thanks for the soldiers lost in the name of duty and keep American troops currently on the front lines in your thoughts and prayers.
