I've been looking at thousands of promotional sites, and it's rare anything that I see is interesting.

Tonight I found a fantastic product that would be perfect to brand.


An ice scraper mitt.

You put on a mitt, and it's an actual ice scraper for your vehicles!

They sell them here, including Canadian Tire. Eddie Bauer makes the best one

I remember these from back in the late 70's. Only they were suede with lambs wool lining. Nothing special..... Put a glove on and pick up the scraper.

Would you have the (B) brand on it?

I wouldn't have it any other way :P

Hahahaha!

Those scraper/mittens on the link that were posted above, are the ones that can be branded.

Though for wholesale, they cost about $0.65 compared to retail $20.00+

Sounds like a good profit if I'm capable.

They might also be good for marketing purposes as well. At $.65 a piece, they would be about the price of a postcard printed and mailed.

These scrapers could be handed out in neighborhoods you wanted to offer winter services too.

Do you have a link to the site that can do the branding and buy them for $.65 each?

Thanks

I unfortunately didn't bookmark the site, knowing I wanted to do some more research. I don't like to order from places outside of Canada - this was an american site.

Basically, don't limit yourself to this product alone - there are a ton of products out there that can be even better!


Instead of typing in 'Promotional Items' into Google, search 'Wholesale products'

Make sure you aren't looking for retail products! Also, avoid the first page, as these guys want you to become 'members' or force you to buy a minimum limit of stock which can be costly.


If you only want 200 shirts, they'll say - "Minimum 1000" - just like any business.

$1/shirt sounds great, though when you have to buy 1000... that's $1000.00!



So search 'Wholsale' probably add your country or area e.g, 'Wholesale Canada' or even 'Custom Wholesale Products' / 'Brand Wholesale Products'

skip a few pages and try to avoid memberships and such.... Look for things on the page which verify their legitimacy.
