Golf discs, sunblock hats, art kites and impressionable flip-flops hit ASI’s top 10 hot list
TREVOSE, Pa., June 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) today released its annual top 10 list of hottest summer products putting the sizzle into ad campaigns, promoting everything from beach resorts and golf outings to company picnics and swim clubs.
The list includes flying golf discs for the newest sports craze sweeping college campuses and the suburbs, humungous beach towels, collapsible coolers and kites that make an artful impression.
According to the Professional Disc Golf Association, the game is played much like traditional golf, but instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc. The object is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, instead of strokes.
“There are 92 days in summer, and the promotional products industry makes every one count with imprintable items that make a big splash in marketing and ad campaigns designed to showcase any company or event,” said Timothy M. Andrews, president and chief executive officer of ASI. “By capitalizing on new trends, the industry remains on advertising’s cutting edge.”

I know what you’re thinking… Beyonce is creating her own line of temporary tattoos? She did and they are very popular.
Starting November 1st, Beyoncé and Japanese makeup brand Temptu have partnered with Deréon to create a range of temporary tattoos. Some of the available temporary tattoo designs will include Deréon’s signature fleur icon, spiders, bolts and chains and jeweled baubles designs, to mimic the theme and feel of the overall fall collection.
The tattoos will be available in two different packages including a basic and a deluxe edition. Both options will consist of eight temporary tattoo transfer sheets (2 sheets each of the 4 designs); 10 tattoo application pads and one of three kit designs, each featuring a different fall and winter Deréon ad campaign image of Beyoncé, all for $16. However, if you opt to spend the asking price of $34, the deluxe edition will also include a signed photo of Beyoncé and a chance to win a trip to New York for a photo shoot.
The temporary tattoo technology has improved greatly; and in either choice, all of the tattoos are waterproof and designed to last for two to five days. They come in a variety of design and sizes, as small as coin to as large as the full body design on the right

One of our Pharmaceutical companies came to us seeking assistance with their new “Green Initiative.” They normally print thousands of brochures, pamphlets and flyers for the trade shows they regularly attend. The goal was to reduce their environmental impact with regards to printed materials. At first, this wasn’t something I was overly excited to assist them with. Primarily because we would lose a huge chunk of the printing services we provide them. Don’t get me wrong, all the printed material we provide this customer with, is 100% recycled. In essence they already have begun the transition to Green, just not to the level they are seeking.
After further consideration it dawned on me. If I was helping them with their efforts towards environmental conservation. In part, we would be contributing as well. At the end of the day, it now became our initiative to provide a solution which would meet their requirements.
Over the years we’ve offered this company alternative mediums for marketing their catalog of products other than print: USB drives and min CD’s, Web Keys, Hot Buttons, etc. These products work well but are costly and don’t provide the ability to demonstrate graphically, as would a printed piece.
The solution is to integrate the two. We found and presented the “Web Key Brochure.” This product allows a company to market their products and/or services graphically. Utilizing a standard brochure package with a detachable web key. This, USB type, device takes the user of this key to the company’s website. Where they can view e-catalogs or promotional incentives from the trade show; and all the digital versions of sales materials available (instead of print).
We have a very happy customer making a difference for the good of the environment. It’s a nice feeling to have contributed to their “Green Initiative.”
