Corn Could Cause Problems for Promotional Products



A report out in Counselor Magazine this week warns promotional product buyers and sellers that the price of corn could surge this Fall and winter causing an increase in the cost of many different products including candy, lip gloss/chapstick and plastic cups.

The worst drought in the Midwest in the past 50 years has taken a toll on the corn crop and thus many of our favorite corn-based products are going to be priced higher. In fact since the spring the cost of corn has gone up close to 60 percent. Manufacturers who did not brace for the conditions and buy their corn in bulk are now finding it difficult to find and afford a supply.

The great thing about the promotional products business is that there are so many products, made from so many different materials so we have remained prosperous even during the economic hardships of the last 5 years or so.

4AllPromos works with dozens of manufacturers that keep in up-to-date with changing industry demands. We work closely with our manufacturers to price products fairly with our customers needs always in mind. Though we think it is important to keep our customers abreast of the latest promotional product news the latest developments with in the corn industry are no cause for alarm.

In fact, the upcoming year could be a good opportunity to rebrand or refresh your marketing strategies will different promotional products. Give one of our friendly product specialist a call toady to discuss your options without breaking the bank!

Calculate sales with 4AllPromos

Every now and then we like to feature a specific promotional product to call attention to just one of the more than 15,000 products we have available on 4AllPromos.com Since school is starting up again and math was most definitely my least favorite subject naturally I thought to spotlight calculators.

Calculators are just for lazy mathematicians. They are for students, accounts and the person tapped to pay the bills in your house. Custom imprinted calculators make a great promotional product not only for back-to-school but during tax season or even during the holiday months.

The fun thing about 4AllPromos calculators is that many of them are more than just a calculator.

4AllPromos alerts parents to backpack safety this fall


Every child needs a backpack to carry books, homework and lunch back and forth from home to school.  Many healthcare professionals including experts at kidshealth.org take time out in the beginning of the school year to warn students and parents about the dangers of heavy backpacks. As a nation-wide retailer of hundreds of promotional and custom imprinted backpacks, messenger bags, drawstring backpacks and tote bags 4AllPromos reminds parents that heavy backpacks can result in back injuries and children should carry no more than 10 to 15 percent of their body weight in a backpack.

While backpacks are a useful way for students to stay organized, a heavy backpack can result in shoulder, neck and back injuries. Today there are so many different types of school bags for the fashion conscious student; however the experts at kidshealth.org  suggest that students use a backpack to help evenly distribute the weight. Carrying a messenger back or tote bag can cause too much strain on one side of the body. Students may choose to use tote bags, drawstring backpacks, or messenger backs when attending classes that do not require heavy text books or a lot of supplies.

The health care experts at kidshealth.org emphasize the importance of children developing healthy habits early in order to grow into healthy, capable and proactive adults. A child’s body is fragile and therefore should no be carrying large loads around throughout the day. Additionally, many of children’s unhealthy habits such as poor posture from activities such as playing video games can also affect spine health. Heavy backpacks or bags can exacerbate poor posture thus leading to spine and neck injuries in adulthood. 

4AllPromos wants to make sure all customers have the supplies needed for a healthy and successful school year. 4AllPromos offers hundreds of different bags that can carry almost anything from groceries, to schoolbooks, to sports bottles and gym shoes. With more than 500 different types of bags there is certainly one for every student, athlete and teacher.  Principals, teachers and coaches may want to consider custom imprinting a bag with the school name or mascot as a welcome back gift to students. Bags are always one of the most popular products on 4allpromos.com

Why businesses should use White Papers



Most paper is white but did you know white papers can actually made a big difference in your business? White Papers in the business world refer to documents which help guide or teach or education customers and fellow business associates about a certain topic.

The big draw of white papers is their impact on SEO and SEM results. White papers took off during the 1990's as a sales and marketing tool. Companies often compile data and research to produce white papers on niche topics valuable to their custom base and their industry.

In recent years social media has helped draw even more attention to white papers. Millions more customers and professionals have access to these useful tools and in turn they share them with associates and their own customers to help draw out a dialog.

4AllPromos pays attention to white papers. Although we don't have any on our website we use our blog as a means to  help communicate the latest trends and research finding within the promotional products industry. If you aren't creating your own white papers we encourage you to find reliable ones from a reputable organization. We often pay attention to release from the Promotional Products Association International and the Advertising Specialty Institute. Both of these organizations spend a lot of time and money researching trends and products within the promotional products industry. They produce numbers and facts that are very helpful to our customers.

It's important to show your customers, clients and competitors that you know what you are talking about. Find, research or write white papers for your business and show them what you're made of.
