Celebrity Apprentice Featured "MY" Bag!

If you watch Celebrity Apprentice and saw last Sunday night’s (March 8th) episode, you may or may not have recognized a promotional product they used. The task for the night was to design a comic book character for How exciting was it to see that each of the celebrity team members received an Atchison by Bic NAP3200 A Step Ahead Messenger Bag to use for their task! Each messenger bag was imprinted with the logo.

This is the SAME bag as my most recent promotional product for Doodads! (I gave them away at the Utah Valley Busniess & Technology Expo last week and I had one lady tell me that I shouldn't waste one on her. I asked her how much she thought it was, and she said $20! They are SO much cheaper than that. I've included the pricing below, with a promotion!)

This Messenger Bag is also in the 2009 Idea Catalog and is featured on page 33. Now is the perfect time to capitalize on a product used by celebrities and seen on TV by millions of viewers!
600D poly canvas messenger style brief with front flap. Features Velcro® closure on flap and main compartment, organizer pockets under flap (Pen and Business Card Holder), grommet on front flap for headphones, mesh water bottle pocket, adjustable shoulder strap and single carrying handle on top.
Quantity **Doodads Price Regular Price
50 $7.49 each $7.91 each
150 $6.69 each $6.99 each
500 $5.99 each $6.07 each

** Because of Doodad's volume purchasing, I am able to secure discounts for MANY of our products. This is one example. The Bic price is listed to the right, and my every day low price is in the second column. Just another reason to choose Doodads as your promotional product supplier!
ALSO, because I'm thrilled to see this promotional product on the big screen, and as my FIRST promotion to celebrate my 10th year in business, I'm going to give an ADDITIONAL 10% off this Messenger bag. It's a great, low cost, low quantity product that would be great for employees, client thank-you gifts and more!
Call me today to take advantage of this special offer. To get the addtional discount, all orders must be submitted, with artwork on or before April 8th, 2009.

Ladies Handbags

I know you can't see all the details on this picture, but I wanted to share with you the idea of handbags and totes for women's events.  They are useful, long-lasting and appreciated.  They also share a GREAT message of quality to the intended recipient.  

If you have an upcoming event or campaign, and you think these bags would be a good fit, give me a call.  I'll send you this electronic flyer so you can read it!
