TP-vertising


Apparently, no space is safe from advertising these days – not even good old-fashioned toilet paper. We’ve seen TP done before, but today I’d like to introduce the next generation of promotional toilet paper: color-by-number style. I would think carefully about your business goals before rushing to put your logo on it, but you better believe it’s going to be memorable for the lucky users. Most other companies go with a travel toiletry bag instead. It’s generally a safer approach.

Stainbroidery


What Tide promotion is cuter than Loads of Hope? This promotion where sample packs of Tide are attached to embroidered stains: pull on the packet and the stain disappears, just like Weezer’s sweater. This is a great use of embroidered shirts as a promotional marketing vehicle. Maybe it would be even more visible if they did this with an embroidered hat as well. tide stainbroidery

Alan Wrenches


Pete Dungey took a poll to find out the most famous Alans and Allens and he engraved their name on a particular style of wrench that is essentially a hexagonal strip of metal bent at a 90 degree angle. This was a great use of custom printed tools. Very clever, eh? Also, I don’t recognize many of these, so I’m guessing he might have polled British people.

Easter Lips


Thanks to Serious Eats, and our Marketing Coordinator Michael for pointing out that Peeps-flavored lip balm exists. And just in time for Easter! Perhaps it’s something we could add to our promotional lip balm selection in the future. And what flavor of candy will be next? Candy corn? peeps-lip balm

Mr. Toilet Passes On


Sim Jae-Duck, founder of the World Toilet Association Assembly (motto: “Toilet is life.”) has passed away. In addition to spearheading efforts to improve worldwide sanitation, he also built (and lived in) a giant toilet-shaped house as a way to bring publicity to his cause (an interesting alternative to awareness bracelets). According to the AFP, Sim was born in a restroom – in line with then-traditional beliefs that this would bring good luck. (For more on buildings shaped like giant stuff, see the Longaberger Headquarters.)

Japanese Promos: Bamboo Toothbrush


Bamboo promotional products are becoming more popular in the US as part of our move towards more eco-friendly promos. (Bamboo more sustainable material to produce than most woods and fibers.) In Japan, many bamboo products, including this bamboo toothbrush are becoming popular as people seek both eco-friendly and healthy alternatives to many products.  Dental promotional products are usually a big hit with customers. I personally think the promotional toothbrush is underrated, and a bamboo one would be even better.
