Beware the Ides of March (and Rebecca Black) with Promotional Calendars

Welcome to this week’s edition of “Trending Topic Tuesday,” where we share our take on what’s going on in the world and what promotional products would appropriately (or inappropriately) market the subject matter.

The Ides of March are upon us, which means impending doom (if it’s 44 B.C. and you’re Julius Caesar, anyway). Some people are still superstitious about March 15, though, and if you’re caught off guard when the date sneaks up on you, it can be extra harrowing. Thankfully, though, if you’ve got some promotional calendars in plain view at your home or office, you won’t be unprepared for such discomfort.

In addition to dates surrounded by superstition such as the Ides of March and Friday the 13th, promotional calendars can help keep you up-to-date (pun maybe intended) on things like, say, Friday – which, as the new viral music video from Rebecca Black tells us, comes after Thursday and before Saturday. Who knew?

Whether you’re a fan of the so-called sensation that is “Friday” or you actually appreciate music, you can’t disagree with the lyrics, especially when you refer to your promotional calendars: “Yesterday was Thursday/today is Friday./We’re so excited … .

On International Women’s Day Show Support with Promotional Items.

Welcome to this week’s edition of “Trending Topic Tuesday,” where we share our take on what’s going on in the world and what promotional products would appropriately (or inappropriately) market the subject matter.


Today March 8th, marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. On this day we recognize the incredible women through out history who have made an everlasting impact on the status of women. However, this day is also about continuing progress and identifying that there is still room to improve.

In this generation, women still make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes, and less than 3 percent of Fortune 500 CEO’s are women. These facts among many others indicate that our world still has the task of perfecting equality.

On this day, and going forth, women’s rights groups such as NOW can show support for the hopeful progress of women through promotional items such as message pens, custom apparel, and various promotional efforts. Through promotional items as well as the many other outlets available, the women of today can spread their message in hopes of building a better place for the women of tomorrow.
