When it comes to marketing with promo products, clients always want to know: What’s new and different? They want to see cool promos they haven’t seen before.
Well, have we got some hot ideas for you.
ePromos staffers just returned from the first tradeshow of the year for the promo industry – The ASI Show. Hosted by the Advertising Specialty Institute, it provides a first look at the coolest new products to hit the promo market.
You can always find the hottest new logo items on ePromos’ homepage, and here’s your first look at some of the best new promos for 2014:
There’s never been a better time to give custom coffee mugs – coffee consumption is on the rise in the U.S. About 83% of adults drink coffee, up from 78% last year, according to the National Coffee Association.
Every cup o’ joe is a marketing opportunity. When you give custom coffee mugs to customers, vendors and prospects, you gain immediate exposure for your brand. Recipients have to look at the mug – there’s no way around it. Every time they reach for it, fill it up and wash it, they’re getting a good look at your logo.
Plus, people are naturally curious when they see a new coffee mug. They want to know what’s printed on the mug. They don’t want to miss seeing a great photo, interesting quote or funny saying.
Of course, the cooler the coffee mug, the greater the chance of it becoming the recipient’s go-to mug – the one they reach for first thing in the morning and then throughout the day.
Custom coffee mugs aren’t just drinking vessels that happen to promote your company. They can be creative, funny, eye-catching, and just plain cool.
Check out the five coolest custom coffee mugs here:
1. Mixed Messages Custom Mug
Your logo is on one side of this white ceramic custom mug – the other side is a palette for personal expression. It comes with a mishmash of durable, repositionable letters that look like they’ve been ripped from magazines and newspapers. The letters stay put for washing, but can be easily changed up to display a different message.
2. Tank-Up Custom Mug
Heat-sensitive printing amps up this mug. Pour in hot coffee, and watch the gauge rise all the way to full. It’s packaged in a retail gift box for an attractive presentation.
3. Battery Morph Custom Mug
Add a steamy beverage to activate the battery graphic on this coffee mug. It transforms to a fully charged state, and then morphs back to low-charge as the drink cools. The other side of the mug features your logo.
4. Jumbo Mustache Promotional Ceramic Mug
Here’s a bigger version of the ever-popular mustache mug – it holds 15 ounces of a favorite beverage (the original version holds 11 ounces). Select from three mustache styles and customize the other side with your logo.
5. Wake-Up Custom Mug
Here’s a mug coffee lovers can relate to. It’s printed with heat-sensitive ink that turns groggy, sleepy eyes into wide-awake eyes. Your logo is printed on the opposite side, making this a fun promotional gift.
It’s that time of year again – time to start thinking about the promotional products you’ll bestow on clients, associates and employees during end-of-year holidays. There’s no better way to show appreciation than a thoughtfully selected custom gift.

Bobble bottles have been making a splash, getting coverage in news outlets ranging from the TODAY Show to In Style magazine. People simply love these colorful, reusable water bottles that filter as you drink.
Put your logo on a Bobble, and you have a brilliant marketing tool. Customers can enjoy crisp, clean water straight from the tap, and your company gets the exposure every time they use the Bobble.
Plus, there’s the eco-friendly element that always piques everyone’s interest. The plastic used to make the Bobble itself is made from recycled materials, and it’s BPA-free. The filter, which is the equivalent of 300 water bottles, is made from activated charcoal with a slight electro-positive charge, removing impurities as water passes through.
The result? The pure, natural taste of water – no chlorine, hard metals, contaminants or funky flavors.
Custom Bobble drinkware is offered in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors to perfectly fit your promotional campaign.
Give your customers a Bobble imprinted with your logo, and it will easily become their go-to water bottle. After all, consumers already know and love the product. And then there’s the obvious fact: Everyone needs H2O. Custom Bobble water bottles refresh your customers and your marketing. You can’t go wrong.
