It's never been a secret that for mass production standard great quality t-shirts we prefer to use Gildan. In our experience, the colors and size are consistent from batch to batch, they look great screen printed, and they don't cost a lot. In recent years, Gildan has begun to diversify their line, making it easier to work with them for projects outside of the standard t-shirt order, and we are really enjoying their new stuff. This is basically a guide highlighting our favorite custom Gildan t-shirt offerings. As always, call or email us at 401-451-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, concerns, and orders.
Gildan Custom Screen Printed Shirts #1: Adult Ultra Cotton
The Adult Ultra Cotton t shirt is our favorite shirt to sell, and Gildan's official marketing rhetoric couldn't be any more on point than this: Nobody knows t-shirts like Gildan, and this classic Ultra Cotton style is a great choice for teams, giveaways, marathons or anyone's T-shirt drawer.
Gildan provides these for men, women, and children of all shapes and sizes. Are you 6ft. 9in. and are having trouble finding an affordable tee shirt for your family reunion? Look no further, because Gildan also offer a special tee for tall folks. Call us today for great pricing on some of these custom printed Gildan tees.
Custom Screen Printed Gildan Tee Shirts #2: Tanks
The fellow from the boy band on the left can testify that this summer, tank tops are back in style. These tanks are made from the same material as the item above this, and are super comfortable, look great with custom printing, and wash well. Combine all of those aspects with a great price, and you have a top selling custom screen printed tank top on your hands. The official marketing wrap-up:
Custom Screen Printing on Gildan T's #3: Long Sleeve!
Custom printed long sleeve tees are great for nighttime just about anywhere in the country in the summer, or if you live near the ocean and it's too hot for a hoodie (which we also sell) but too cool for a standard Gildan Ultra Cotton tee. You still get all of the award winning features: 6 oz, preshrunk 100% cotton, rib knit cuffs, and more, for not much $$$$ when placed in comparison with the closest competitors. Send us an email at email@example.com to discuss your custom screen printe Gildan long sleeve t-shirts order.
Custom Screen Printing on Gildan T Shirts #4: Core Performance
The Core Performance line is available in men, women, and children's sizes, as well as long sleeve. These are our #1 shirts that we sell as budget soccer/basketball/flag football jerseys for a few different reasons: they are comfortable, lower cost than jerseys, they print very nicely, and are treated with an anti microbial potion that keeps them from getting stinky longer in your gym bag. These look great with your team's name and player numbers screen printed on the front/back. Call 401-451-1874
We just received this, not sure how long this deal will last, but if it's a great price...call us if you are interested 401-451-1874
Advertising Promotional Pens
by Dan Tessier sales@AdSpecialtyProducts.com
In our last blog, we focused on promotional items on the cheap, basically the type of items that a salesperson would hand out on sales calls or at trade shows & conventions as gifts. In conjunction with the launch of our new promotional pen store we decided to go into a bit more detail about some of our current top selling advertising promotional pens. After all, it's easier to explain more about what makes each particular pen special in blog format than in store format, because there is much more room here to write freely. As always, we hope you enjoy this guide, and if you wish to become a B2B customer of AdSpecialtyProducts.com, contact us with any questions or to request a sample.
Advertising Promotional Pens #1: Translucent Stick
You may be saying to yourself, "big whoop", everyone carries stick pens. While our translucent stick looks and feels like many other stick pens, the truth of the matter is that this pen out writes many of the other stick pens. Our top concern with our promotional pens is that they write well, no matter what price category into which they happen to fall. When put in competition with other stick pens, he translucent stick is no chump, and at $98 for 250 pens with free shipping and no setup* (at the time this blog was written), you would be crazy not to give this pen a shot at your next trade show.

Advertising Promotional Pens #2: Bright Click
The Bright Click made this list because it is way on the far spectrum of our lowest cost pens, but still is very attractive and has some great features. The ribbed grip is popular with many customers because it feels great while writing, and it's large imprint area makes it an obvious choice for promotional use. Click Here to Buy the Bright Click
Advertising Promotional Pens #3: Percy Plastic Click
As if the bright colors weren't enough to draw the eye, the Percy pen goes one step further by adding high gloss. Much like the Bright Click (above), the Percy offers a large imprint area that makes it hard to overlook your company's beautiful logo. The black plunger and clip serve to accent both the bright color and your logo or company name, and at the price of this pen with free shipping and free setup, the Percy is sure to get you excited about your next promo purchase.
Advertising Promotional Pens #4: Vicky Click
The Vicky pen comes in so many color combinations that it had to be separated into "citrus" and "standard" models. The styling on these affordable promotional pens is impeccable, and the bright white barrel provides the perfect canvas for the perfect piece of corporate artwork, your logo. Click here to purchase the Vicky
Advertising Promotional Pens #5: Virginia Twist
The Virginia Twist combines the best of the old days with the reliability of modern times. We can visualize a middle age professional in a wool suit going to his job as a loan officer at the local financial institution, opening up his dark brown leather briefcase with gold appointments, and removing the Virginia to begin yet another long but rewarding day at the office. The Virginia pen is truly something special for the styling to last this long, and the dark, traditional colors and gold trim make it quite clear that this classic pen means business. Click here to order the Virginia Twist
Advertising Promotional Pens #6: Maxine Hybrid
At the absolute opposite end of the style spectrum from our Virginia pen (above) is the Maxine. The Maxine pen combines style and technology, delivered in a somehow surprisingly elegant package. The Maxine is the answer to years of customer requests for a pen that offers the reliability of a ballpoint with the smooth writing nature of a gel. Combine all of the style and features of this great hybrid with free shipping, no setup charge, and as always, expert customer service, and we are sure that you will be satisfied with the lovely Maxine Hybrid. Click Here to Order
Advertising Promotional Pens #7: Sarah Click
We really enjoy the Sarah pen because of its good looks, bright colors, superior functionality, and unique grip. We have the ability to carry any pen on the planet, and we chose the Sarah (and the rest of our line) because we believe that customers should not have to compromise style and great feel when they are looking for an inexpensive promotional pen. Like the Vicky Click (above), the white background really makes your logo stand out, which we always remember is the entire purpose of your buying pens for your event. Click here and purchase some Sarah Pens today!
Advertising Promotional Pens #8: Sonya Metal Click
The Sonya metal pen made it into this list because thus far we have only featured plastic pens, and there are a couple of pens in our line, such as the Sonya, that represent an extreme value for your marketing dollars. You should really head on over to the store for a closer look at the brushed metallic colors, the perfect backdrop to showcase your logo. This pen includes your laser engraved company name or logo, and in our opinion, the only way to show off your logo with such a classy pen is engraving. Other high end features include chrome trim, and silver band deep etching provides enough grip so that you can hold the pen firmly, but still enough smoothness that you can write comfortably for a long period of time without fatigue. Click Here For Sonya
Advertising Promotional Pens #9: Maxwell Executive
Much like the Sonya, the Maxwell is a metal pen, offering exquisite engraved logo, reliable chrome click action, and a splendid variety of brushed metal colors. Unlike the Sonya, the Maxwell caters to the purchaser that prefers a thicker barrel for a more substantial feel. Another advantage of the larger barrel is a slightly larger imprint area to display your engraved company name or logo. Any way you slice it, the Maxwell is a contender in the large barrel pen market. Click Here for a Closer Look.
Advertising Promotional Pens #10: Ace Metal
The Ace metal pen lives up to its name in both style and performance. To our knowledge at the time of this blog, the Ace is among the best looking pens in its price range. The Ace delivers super comfortable writing with the ribbed grip, smooth brushed metallic finishes, and, for the first time in this blog, matte silver trim on both ends of the writing instrument. Some people call this styling retro, we just call it our Ace. Click Here to Buy

Cheap Promotional Items Guide
by Dan Tessier email@example.com
Here at Ad Specialty Products, we receive more calls every year for what we call promotional items on the cheap.
We have developed a sort of task force to help our ultra budget conscious customers find suitable trade show and convention items-- and put together this guide to show our customers some of their low cost options that have a high perceived value and, in the same turn, a high likelihood of being held on to after the event.
Cheap Promotional Items #1: Pens
Pens are an all time top seller for us. Even with our lower cost pens, we strive to provide promotional writing instruments that write well without hurting your pocket.
Our example to the left, is our Rachel promotional pen, a budget pen that comes with a large imprint area for displaying your logo properly, as well as a cap-off design. This pen is available in our store by clicking here, and offers more style for the price than the vast majority of our competitors.
Cheap Promotional Items #2: Polypro Hats
Polypropylene is the same material used to make tote bags. In the old days, the only choices that you had for low cost hats were mesh/foam trucker caps and painter's caps. These polypropylene hats are a small step up from those in terms of comfort, while actually being lower cost. How do we offer these at low prices? It's the combination of low cost material and the imprinting process. These are printed, not embroidered, which saves time for us and money for you. Contact us for current pricing, it will blow your mind.
Cheap Promotional Items #3: Retro Sunglasses
Our suppliers are finally getting away from the dollar store style two-tone black and neon shades, and these solid color sunglasses are actually pretty darn cool looking. I try to keep an extra pair of sunglasses in my car, especially for our 90+ degree Rhode Island summer days. If you offer your customer a non-hideous pair of spare shades, you'd be surprised at how long they keep these. With promotional product, shelf life is very important, and this product has what it takes to be a winner. Note: we still carry the glossy finish version of these, also at fantastic prices.
Cheap Promotional Items #4: Bottle & Can Coolers
Your eyes are not deceiving you. To the left is indeed, a hoodie bottle cooler. We carry every type of bottle and can cooler on the market, and can even provide name brand Koozies if that is your preference. My personal favorite are the zippered bottle coolers, they look great and are super easy to get a bottle in and out of the item.
Cheap Promotional Items #5: Flyers
The flyer to the left is one of the collapsible, storable type. We also carry traditional flying discs, in a variety of sizes and an even bigger range of colors.
We are a pet friendly company, and are proud to offer pet friendly shatter proof flyers, which you may want to consider if you think that your customer will be using them with their pup. They don't cost much more, and add a degree of safety for your pet.
Cheap Promotional Items #6 USB Chargers/Tech Gifts
The sheer amount of tech stuff that we sell that is roughly under $3 per item is absolutely staggering as far as perceived value. We once had a customer tell us that a local cel store offers the item to the left for $25+.
Atop our list of other fantastic low cost tech items are stylus pens and guitar picks, computer brushes, computer cord organizers, and earbud style headphones. If you're into technology then we definitely speak your language, so give us a call.
Cheap Promotional Items #7: Chocolate Squares
We sell a heck of a lot of these 1.25x1.25 chocolate squares, and with good reason. Our pricing is fantastic, and chocolate wrapped in gold has the "gold bar effect", meaning that it's an instant high perceiver value.
Chocolate squares will make you a hero at your next trade show or convention, where hunger is one of the top competitors for your potential client's attention. Our motto regarding food gifts is "beat the hunger, gain the client", and it's served us well for years.
Cheap Promotional Items #8: Mints & Gum
Q: If hunger is one top opponent of you converting a potential client at a show, what is another huge external obstacle?
A: Bad breath! Try talking for an extended period of time without developing a case of stinky mouth-itis. Halitosis is a huge problem at trade shows, and if you've spent any amount of time at one, you already know this. The guy with the mints and the gum is known as a hero at these events, and we provide a variety of flavors and packaging to suit your budget.
Cheap Promotional Items #9: Bags, Bags, Bags!
We carry every style of promotional tote, from the standard die cut trade show bag to bags that rival the quality that you would find in your favorite department store. We've said this before and we will say it again: people keep these bags for a long time, the polypro bags have really come a long way and hold up very nicely. I have used the same polypro trade show bag for 3 years now to carry my dirty snowboard boots, and can tell you every word that is written on the item because I have seen it so often and my friends ask about it. They also make great beach bags after a trade show, so you are doing your part in being eco friendly by providing a convention tote that people will actually keep. It's just a bonus that ours happen to be the best darn looking totes in the industry. Before you leave, check out our bag section to shop for your next batch of totes!
Cheap Promotional Items #10: Sports Schedule Magnets
We are specifically focusing on sports schedule magnets because we have a lot of customers who give away business card magnets, which is cool if you meet someone with whom you actually make a big connection and they decide to keep your magnetic card forever and ever on their filing cabinet.
In trade show situations, you often don't get time to make that level of connection with the vast majority of passers-by, and you want them to think of you later on as they go through their goodie bag as the attractive fellow (or lady) with great taste in promotional products.
Sports schedule magnets stay on filing cabinets and fridges for months, and if you are lucky, can become a conversation piece about this season's team, their chances for a title this year, etc. Many people, even non sports fans, have fond memories of past games.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of baseball, but I've never refused a ticket to ANY baseball game, be it major league, minor league, or even college-- because the people are all in a good mood and it's a great way to spend a day. Get some sports magnets and make a special connection at your next show.
Cheap Promotional Items #11: Paper Goods
As a salesperson, I am horrible at keeping track of my automobile mileage. Every year, I receive a free mileage log from my accountant with his logo on it, as a reminder to keep track of it and also to get my other accounting stuff together.
Auto mileage logs are just one example of the fantastically useful paper items that we provide. Paper products have experienced a growth in shelf life because of the "go green" movement. If you hand someone a stack of sticky notes in their least favorite color, they will still keep and use the notes because they feel bad about throwing them out. Take advantage of the low cost of our paper products and the eco friendly movement, and order some recycled note pads for which your customers will remember you fondly.
Cheap Promotional Items #12: Keychain Tools & Lights
I don't know about you, but I personally have never thrown away a key light, bottle opener, or tape measure. You never know when you're going to need to look for something, open something, or measure something. It's almost bad luck to throw such a useful item away. We provide thousands of keychain type tools, and are adding new stock to our online store nearly every day. Chances are, we have an item that will relate directly to you and your mission, so give us a call.
We hope you enjoyed our guide of cheap promotional items, please remember to check out our promotional products store and to give us a call, as we always strive to provide exceptional service. We can be reached at 401-451-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org, ask for Dan.
