This July we headed to the windy city of Chicago to the mid-year ASI promotional product show to see if there were any new and exciting promotional products to share. Most manufactures release their new products in January, but with the reducing number of distributors using and sending out physical catalogs to clients, the new trend in the industry is to release a few new products throughout the year. Here is a list of some of the hot items as well as some promotional products we thought would be great giveaways.
Without a doubt fidget spinners were everywhere. From basic, to light up and glow in the dark. Every manufacture has jumped on this ban-wagon. The trick to these has been getting them in a reasonable amount of time. We are featuring the spinner from Norwood as they have been on the last manufactures to jump on this trend, but have an impression inventory commitment.

With personal security being a hot topic across the news, we found the web cam cover to be very interesting. Once a client puts this on their phone, your company is being branded to that individual multiple times a day and this could be one of the most powerful branding promotional products in the market. There were only a few manufactures that were promoting this and we found HIT Promotional Products to have a nice price point. Click HERE for more information about the web cam cover.
The phone grip from SlingGrip is another trend of 2017 and now have a slew amount of color options. The strap comes in full color and for an additional .12c you can have your business card printed in full color on the back side of the card that holds your branded grip. This is an amazing way to hand your information over to a potential client and you will be sure to stand out. And like the webcam cover, a very powerful branding promotional product.

Since everyone carries a phone it is no wonder the hot items are tech/phone driven. The Pop Socket fits right into this category. Depending on if you want the actual “Pop Socket” name brand, these are actually a really nice and affordable give away. We are going to feature the name branded Pop Sockets from iClick. Just know you can get an off brand for move that half the cost. Click HERE for more information about the Pop Sockets.
Some say that the presentation is just as important as the gift itself. For those, Independent Folders have came out with 10 styles of gift boxes and welcome kits. This is really nice because you don’t have the extensive die charges that you would have with regular custom box ordering. These are new items and they do not have on their website yet.
