What is Your Favorite Candy?

jellybeans

From jelly beans and runts to gumballs and gummi worms, everyone has a favorite candy they indulge in once in awhile. June is National Candy Month… I know what you’re thinking: it sounds like a made up holiday, but it’s not. I think they have a month, week or day for everything, but this one I don’t mind celebrating! For most people, candy brings up many great memories from childhood. Remember when you saved up all your money to run down to the local store and buy a candy bar or sugary snack? Candy is a sweet treat that almost everyone enjoys; I know in our office the Starburst jar is always running low by the end of the week.

As the old saying goes, the way to your heart is through your stomach. Treat your clients to customized promotional candy from imprinted gumpaks and custom mint tins to a longer lasting promotional candy item, like the desktop jelly bean tin filled with jelly beans in your corporate colors. Custom candy is a great promotional item to use as a leave behind at a sales call, for thank you gifts, as well as corporate holiday gifts. You’ll be surprised that your clients will remember your tasty generosity long after the candy is gone.

Love Means Nothing to a Tennis Player!

DaveMontPhotography-tennisnet/ballDon’t let that saying fool you… tennis players take their game very seriously. May is National Tennis Month and for tennis players and spectators alike, it is the beginning of the exciting summer tournament season! With the French Open already underway and Wimbledon fast approaching, many people are headed out to the courts to work on their serve and ground strokes. Tennis is a great sport for all ages and really brings the community together, especially in the summer months.

There are many sponsored tennis leagues and charity tournaments that provide an excellent opportunity to promote your company or organization. Why not hand out imprinted tennis ball stress balls at your local charity tournament? Another great tennis promotional item that has great visibility is a tennis ball car magnet with your company’s logo and information. People like to have unique bumper stickers on their cars, but don’t always want it to be permanent; what better way than a magnet that can be easily be removed if needed? This has been a huge hit for local tennis clubs and national tennis leagues.

So whether you head out on the tennis court or just watch your favorite tennis pro on television, help celebrate National Tennis Month this May!

“Say Cheese!”

 

May is National Photography Month! There is no better time than the present to start documenting and preserving your most treasured memories. The old adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” says it all: whether they are goofy, sentimental, or historical in nature, photos capture a moment in time that can never be repeated.

As a gift or giveaway, cameras are a valuable piece of equipment for recording special events and occurrences, and custom imprinted cameras can integrate your company’s name or logo into the photographer’s memories for years to come. Digital frames are another creative gift idea, as they incorporate cutting edge technology with a thoughtful, personalized item.

For more traditional ways to store and organize photographs, photo albums or picture frames turn timeless snapshots into pieces of art.

Don’t forget to “Say Cheese!” and smile for the camera over the next few days in honor of National Photography Month!

May Showers, But Where Are The Flowers?

1_growearth_lrg1

I’m sure you’ve all heard the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” But as we near the end of May and the showers keep on coming, it’s easy to forget how nice those flowers and the newly emerging greenery can be.

While the rain is much needed and a great relief to the drought the South has been dealing with for the past few years, it can get a bit gloomy after awhile.

If you’re anything like me and are missing those sunny afternoons, do what I’ve done and bring a little Spring to your desktop! Grow-Cups are perfect sized plants you can grow at your desk. Choose from different seed types and actually garden while you work. The cups themselves can be completely customized with your artwork or you can choose from several stock designs. And for just a hair over $2, you can’t beat the value!

Add a little green to your desk and brighten up these rainy Spring days with living promotional products.

Celebrate Memorial Day!

 

beach itemsThis weekend, take a moment to reflect on the true reason for Memorial Day’s existence. Although we often associate the holiday with a long weekend or the Indianapolis 500, Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for American soldiers who gave their lives for our country. As you set off on trips to the beach or lake, pause to consider the people who are the underlying cause for this national holiday. Our homeland is fortunate to have such dedicated servicemen and women protecting our honor.

Despite the solemn nature of Memorial Day, a long weekend is always reason to celebrate! Employees or customers can enjoy beach-themed goodies all summer long, and we suggest stuffing gift bags with necessities from our Beach Items category.
Fillers like Frisbees offer fun for the whole family, and Sunscreen & Suncare Kits will help prevent nasty sunburns.

This Memorial Day, have fun and stay safe, but most importantly, give thanks for the soldiers lost in the name of duty and keep American troops currently on the front lines in your thoughts and prayers.

Pinnacle Promotions Adopts a Road!

road clean-up 4

Did you know that three out of every four Georgia motorists have witnessed trash being thrown out of a vehicle, but only one out of ten admit to littering from their vehicle? Litter is not only a crime, but it also has negative repercussions for everybody, regardless of whether or not you decide to litter. It consumes millions of taxpayer dollars that would be better spent on other Georgia services, like education or wildlife initiatives, and it pollutes many statewide water sources, simultaneously hurting living creatures inhabiting these environments.

Pinnacle Promotions wants to do our part to combat littering in our area, so we have signed up as a company to “Adopt-a-Road.” We will be maintaining the portion of Jones Mill Road from Peachtree Industrial to Buford Highway in Gwinnett County, Georgia. The “Adopt-a-Road” campaign, sponsored by Gwinnett County Department of Transportation and Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, provides valuable tools and information to citizens who want to help clean up debris in our community. We are proud to add “Adopt-a-Road” to a growing list of sustainable actions being taken by our organization.

If you would like to start a clean-up campaign in your local community, we recommend outfitting your crew in appropriate safety apparel. Find reflective vests and jackets in our Safety Workwear category. We also offer a variety of First Aid Kits in case of minor cuts or scrapes, and Flashlights are always useful for early morning or late night outings to collect trash.

Also, don’t forget about the wide variety of EarthSmart™ products on our website- as members of “1% for the Planet,” we give back one percent of the revenue from sales of these products to environmental non-profit groups!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

pinnaclebravesgame1

Monday night the Pinnacle Crew headed to Turner Field to take in an Atlanta Braves baseball game against the Colorado Rockies. Unfortunately the Braves lost, but we all felt like winners! There is nothing like watching a baseball game on an unusually cool Atlanta night while enjoying all that great stadium food. From peanuts, pretzels, and hotdogs to fully loaded nachos and pizza we all took down some major calories as we cheered on the home team.

Being in the promotional products industry it is hard not to notice all of the promotional marketing that goes on at a live sporting event. From company sponsored billboards, foam Braves tomahawks, branded sweepers that clean off the field to the T-shirts they shoot out into the stands, there are literally thousands of opportunities to promote your business or organization. Even if you don’t have the budget for a Braves game sponsorship, your local little league or annual baseball tournament is a great opportunity to promote yourself. Check out our Outdoors category for great spirit accessories, like imprinted foam fingers, pom poms, sports balls and megaphones.
