 To Our Valued Customers:

The State of Michigan has issued a statewide order for all residents to stay at home until April 13th.  As we are a Michigan distributor, we are still working, but from home, at our computers, as many of you are as well.

Additionally, many of our suppliers are in the same situation, and some are under a statewide order without a definitive end.  Yet, there are some suppliers producing orders from other locations, and will continue as long as they are able to do so.

However, the health and safety of the employees of all of our suppliers is of the utmost priority, and our suppliers will follow the direction of local, State, and Federal leaders to guide them.  As information develops, we will continue to provide updates.

Please continue to send us your orders;  we will acknowledge them in writing as usual, and let you know a production time and shipping date … it is just that you won’t have your order processed in our usual 10-day production time. 

We appreciate your support and understanding. Stay safe, and our best to you and your families … and we hope to be of service to you soon!

Barb Meredith, President




Your Donut's Favorite Mug

March 13, 2020

We love mugs, and here's a new one we like for the choice of pretty colors and the cream colored interior ... even the white mug with the cream interior is a beauty!

The Kindle has a good shape for dunking your favorite pastry!

72 is the minimum.

Side Trips

February 20, 2020

Ok, so we're still (in Michigan) experiencing some cold and snowy days, but March is around the bend and that means:  Spring Break!  

Here is an attractive, durable backpack to take on your trip!  The Essence Backpack is 11.5" x 17.75" x 4" and has a large zippered main compartment, a zippered front pocket, and a mesh side pocket for your beverage bottle.

We like it.  Well, who wouldn't, especially when we are offering it at a Spring Break price of $8.99 each in a quantity of 50 or more!

Now Here's a Tote!

January 27, 2020

We don't promote this tote enough, although we use two of them every time we shop!

This Laminated Recycled Tote Bag is made of recycled P.E.T. fabric (made from recycled plastic bottles) and then matte laminated to provide extra durability!  We've been using ours for over three years and still in great shape!

There are three designs and messages promoting recycling, reusing, reducing.

The minimum is 100, and your imprint can be on one or both sides!

New Year! New Items! New Events!

January 06, 2020

2020 is here and budgets are beginning to take shape for all the events, tradeshows, fairs, golf outings, and so on, throughout the year!  

We have several new items and we will be adding more in the month ahead, and special pricing (see under quarterly sales ... although some sales are all year!), and lower pricing on some items in 2020.

What's coming up?  Annual meetings, Home Expos, and Teaching Kids to Save Money (see our coloring books and piggy banks).

And, as usual, if you don't see it here, ask us!  We can't post everything we have available, but we can find it for you!

Happy new year!

P.S.:  Why the dog photo?  No reason, other than he's cute.  But don't forget we have a Pet Accessories category too!



The Hudson Tumbler

December 06, 2019

New in 2019, the Hudson Tumbler is our favorite new drink item!  Double-wall 18/8 stainless thermal tumbler with copper vacuum insulation ... so keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for a long time!

Our Favorite New Mug

September 04, 2019

Can you call a mug "sweet?"  How about "charming?"  This one is our new favorite mug.

The Jax is a 10 oz. stoneware mug, with matte color on the outside, and glossy white on the inside.

It is microwave safe, and comes in 7 colors, including white.  

Cotton Canvas Totes

June 21, 2019

While we love the non-woven polyproylene totes which have been so popular over the past 15 or so years, we find people are enthused about the classic cotton canvas tote these days!

The Coventry Tote is a 14 oz. cotton canvas (so it's sturdy, and won't droop),  11-1/2" x 14" x 5-1/2", and with a wide front pocket.  

Two web handles are 1-3/4" x 26"

Your imprint is shown in one color in an area 6" x 9" on the front pocket

Color is Natural, with Blue, Black or Green, trim and handles

The minimum is just 50!
