Factory Direct Promotional Products

If you are NOT importing your promotional products direct from the source factory you are spending too much!

In 2019 if you are not importing direct from the factory at least some of your promotional products, you are spending way too much money for the same thing. Why would you do this?

Importing from China and using a service like ours has never been easier, if you know what you’re doing!

The current import environment can be quite frightening when you consider the ongoing trade war. EIN requirements, tariffs, duties, HS codes. All pretty daunting for a business marketer to consider importing direct from China.

On the other hand, importing has never been easier. Lower minimum quantities, greater selection, awesome prices and fast, fast, fast delivery.

In our last 10 years of factory direct dealings with China we have seen minimum orders drop dramatically and delivery times speed up exponentially. We source orders of swag in quantities as low as 100 pieces and deliver in as little as 1 week.

Here’s the Elevator Pitch!

Don’t think your order is big enough to consider getting it delivered direct from the factory? Think again!

Need it fast? Do you have 2-3 weeks before the event? Call us?

Nervous? Don’t be, we are a USA based company that guarantees fast delivery and 100% satisfaction or you don’t pay one single dime!

What’s The Next Step?

Simple. Send us an image of what you are looking for, how many you are looking for and when you need them by. In 24 hours or less we will have you a price and a proof!

Case Study 1

The regional T Mobile office called us looking for 250 T shirts for an event.

When speaking with the marketing person at T Mobile they told us they were having problems sourcing their stand up signs.

It seems that T-Mobiles current domestic supplier for the folding signs had raised prices by 20% and was taking way too long to respond.

We asked if he could help. Simple!

We asked Tom (the contact at the T Mobile office) to take some pictures of the original sign and send them to us. Once we got the pictures we sent them to our partners in China.

Within 48 hours we had 2 solutions for Tom. 2 weeks later we had him a prototype. A week after that Tom called us asking if we wanted to quote on a national roll out.

We quoted Tom. Long story short, a month later Tom sent us an order for 2000 folding signs for T Mobile. We sourced, produced and then drop shipped them to all 50 states.

WE LOVE TOM!

Case Study 2

Our client, Sally from Carlsberg Brewery called us to inquire about a “small order of 500 hats”. (We think every order is huge..as we like to say “it takes many pebbles to make a beach!”).

Sally said to us that she thought this order was too small to go factory direct and suggested she should just get them locally.

“Hold on Sally!, let’s see what we can do for you!”

In 20 minutes we had a factory direct price for Sally that saved her about $2 each off of what the local promotional products distributor was going to charge.

Case Study 3

Dick runs the marketing for a small company. Dick’s boss said to Dick. “We need 250 flash drives with free preloads of our catalog to give away at the next trade show”.

Dick did exactly as he has always done and phoned his friend Todd at the local promotional products place. Dick told Todd he had 2 weeks and needed a good price.

Todd went to a supplier who held inventory in the States. The Supplier who had already marked up the product by 50% sold it to Todd who marked it up 40% who then sold it to Dick.

Dick paid almost $14 for a flash drive. About $9 more than he should have. Dick’s boss was furious.

The Moral of this Story? No One Wants To Be A DICK!

Frequently Asked Questions!

Can You Remove and Clean Your Pop?

To reposition your Pop Up Socket gently pull off your pop from the phone or the case. Then gently run the adhesive base of the Pop Up Socket under cold water for 3 seconds.

The Pop Up Socket phone stand is fairly small and the 3M adhesive is very sticky. You won’t need a lot of water to clean it and help it restick.

Let the pop up socket dry for around 10 minutes and then reattach. Too much water could make the drying time last past the 15 minute limit and ruin its stickiness.

Will the Pop Up Socket Stick to a Phone Case?

Yes this Pop Up Socket will stick to any case even a bumpy case. While Pop Up Sockets do not stick to all devices and cases — especially those made of silicone or with a waterproofing coating — they do stick to most typical devices and cases.

How To Use a POP Up Socket Phone Stand?

Using a Pop Up Socket as a stand works better when there are two of them attached to your phone or tablet (especially the latter), but a single one works too. With one Pop Up Socket, just pop it out twice and lean your device in landscape orientation.

Earphone management system: You can wrap your earphones/ earbuds around your Pop Up Sockets to keep them in one place and tangle-free.

Grips for larger devices: Pop Up Sockets make holding large devices such as tablets and e-readers easy, comfortable and secure. You can also use them for smaller devices such as GoPros.

3 Great Tradeshow Ideas Under 2 Dollars

Tradeshow Giveaways Under $2 Are Hard To Find.

Here’s 3 ideas under 2 Bucks that will make it work.

Tradeshows are a great way to up your brand game but you need a way to engage the customer and to keep your brand front and foremost in their minds.

Its easy to get people to come to your booth if you’re giving away something expensive. For instance if you gave everyone at your booth a leather jacket with your logo on it you would have a line up around the block. You’d also go broke.

So the trick to getting people to come to your booth and to leave your booth with something they remember you by is to give them something with your logo on it that is cheap and cheerful, fun and fabulous, inexpensive and interesting.

Here are 3 great ideas under 2 bucks.

Pop socket style phone grip

Everyone has a smart phone, why not give them the trending pop socket style phone grip with your logo on it. 500 pieces is $1.90 each.

Market Your Brand This Way.

Embrace your inner geek. It will bump up your brand identity.

Getting geeky may be the solution to amp up your B2b marketing. It worked BIG TIME for Portland.

Promotional Products are a great way to better your brand image but often promo swag gets a bad rap.

In fact, some of today’s less informed business to business marketers are of the opinion that the use of promo swag for marketing is an idea that is past its prime. I happen to strongly disagree.

In my expert opinion, it is not the idea or the effectiveness of using promotional swag to build your brand but there are 2 distinct problems with the current way promo is sold that affect their impact and usefulness in promoting your brand.

I cover the reasons for this problem and the possible solutions in the following article.

Problem 1.

The first is the average mind-set and challenges of the local promotional products person (oh boy…here comes the hate mail).

They are just not focused on what is trending and on point.

The average promo distributor has access to over 20,000 promo ideas, most of which have been around for decades and are a little tired and done to death. As well, the average age of the local ad specialty distributor is closing in on 58. This is a stat according to the Ad Specialty Institute (ASI), the promotional product industries guiding light.

This age is fine (58), I will be this age one day and some of our best friends are that age. The trouble is not being 58 the trouble comes with a willingness on the part of most 58 year olds and older to find, embrace, understand and sell new trending ideas. It is just not in the average 58-year olds DNA.

Wholesale, imprinted and factory direct promotional popsockets are the perfect swag for conference giveaway, b2b marketing and trade show swag.

“Most new trends come to life from somewhere in our world’s youth culture!”

Without going into a ton of speculation on my part as to why a 58 year old does or does not embrace or search out new ideas I can firmly say that given decades of observation on my own generation and those who came before that 58 year olds simply do not look for new trends and embrace new ideas as readily as a Millennial!

So, why are you looking to a 58 year old for new trending ideas?

It is very common for the local ad specialty distributors to only sell and promote ideas that they are familiar with. In fact, common terms used by promo veterans include , “he’s a pen and mug guy” or “I specialize in wearables”. These translate into, “I am only comfortable selling a pen or a mug because I understand that idea!” or  “I like to sell clothes with your logo on it..things like t-shirts and golf polo’s”.

My observation. New ideas and trends are almost universally found and promoted by a culture of youth. It has always been this way and I think, it will likely always be this way.

Problem 2.

The second problem with the current promotional product sales paradigm is the idea of being on point and on trend with emerging ideas and products. “It takes a lot of energy and intelligence to spot a trend before it becomes outdated, you got to be quick and nimble”.

The big suppliers in the promo business are NOT quick or nimble and they certainly are not trend spotters.

They are experts at warehousing large quantities of pedestrian goods (pens and mugs). The business model of the big suppliers (the source where distributors buy the swag they sell to you ) is a 30 year old business model and predates by decades the internet.

The big supplier model is to sell to distributors products they make the most money on. These products are almost always long standing “evergreen” products such as 3M pads, pens, mugs, swivel usb’s etc, There is nothing interestng about them (IMO).

New Ideas Don’t Make Sense for Big Suppliers.

Big suppliers don’t embrace new ideaas until they have become established ideas. Simply put they do not need trending ideas as they have the boring swag portion of the market cornered.

New ideas and trending ideas take time to find, cultivate a supply chain and to create a bullet-proof delivery to you from the factory floor to your door.

At Tradeshow 8 we have a small team of trend enthusiasts who spend hours each day combing through Kickstarter, Etsy, YouTube and dozens of other sites and blogs looking to spot the next trend. They are, to say the least, a unique group of peeps.

Once a trend is spotted we then work on sourcing it to be made in one of our factories in China and deliver it with your logo on it all at a price you can afford. We are experts at trends!

“It takes a lot of energy and product intelligence to spot an emerging trend”.

What’s a Savvy B2b Marketer to Do?

As a friend of mine once told me , “When you want a different outcome, think differently!”

If you are looking to pump up the interest with your next tradeshow, b2b marketing initiative or customer appreciation event and if you want the outcome to improve over previous efforts you need to think a little differently. This means sourcing from someone other than your local “pen and mug guy”.

We would be more than happy to help.

Bumbershoot Music Festival Makes Sure Attendees Are Fully Charged

Seattle music festival considers giving out custom Bumbershoot power bank for every ticket sold!

Bumbershoot will help keep patrons fully charged for the labor day long weekend music festival by handing out a custom powerbank with every ticket. One of the worst problems with going to a music festival is running out of battery on your phone. All of a sudden you’ve lost your friends and have no phone to callanyone. Bumbershoot recognized this problem and wanted to do something about itfor their 48th annual festival.

The 2019 line up has not yet been released, but we are expecting to see some big names at this year’s event. Even better,attendees will leave the festival and will use their custom power banks when they’re back home, reminding everyone that this is the festival to be at if you live on the West Coast.

The custom power banks can hold a charge for hours on end and is a compact and convenient way to charge your phone in a pinch. The logo comes out clean every time and your customer service representatives are millennials who know what kind of promo gear this age group is looking for!

Easy DIY Importing from China to the USA are Over!

Easy DIY Importing from China to the USA are Over!

Prepare to get ready to be buried under paperwork, have your goods caught in customs and possibly returned to China, this will not be pretty.

We have been an importer from China to the US since 2005.

Back in 1992 (The Dark Ages), I was one of the first US importers to go directly to China (and other countries) to source finished goods for the North American and European markets.

My job was to be the head of the import hammer for a very large denim factory that produced goods for Levi’s, Lee, Wrangler plus our ad specialty division called ID Wear. At that time there was numerous tariffs, duties etc in place which made importing finished goods from China to the US very very dificult.

get your logo on the coolest trade show and b2b promo swag.

get your logo on the coolest trade show and b2b promo swag.

Why did we have tarrifs in the first place?

Originally there were T&D (Tariffifs and Duties) in place to protect the American manufacturing market not because China was an economic threat, but because China was a Communist country and a global political threat.

As you will remember, China, in 1993 was just emerging from the Tiananmen Square Massacre of 3000 of their own citizens.

In 1993 their economy was just slightly ahead of Afghanistan/Pakistan region and just below that of Italy. See below.

“Since 1993 a lot has changed!”

china in 1993

china in 1993

During the Period 1993-2005

Sometime in the early 2000’s, China received “most favored nation status” from the USA. This basically meant we in the west no longer cared that they were/are Communist and instead we wanted to do business with them. Basically we all went crazy in an effort to do business with China….”It was Belly up to the bar boys lets make money, who cares if they’re Commies! ? ”

“As the years ticked by, 93, 96, 98, 2000 etc… all T&D’s slowly got to be less costly and required way less paperwork.”

This slow rollback of T&D was an intentional move by the US Gov’t to allow American manufacturers who made products for our domestic wholesale and retail markets (such as goods for the Promotional Products industry) to have a long time to get their factory’s more lean and competitive.

or…alternatively…to turn get those same American Manufactuers (circa 1993-2005) to become an American Importer of the same finished goods.

“Wanna read something interesting..? Check out the Fortune 500 TOP list of American Business in 1999, How many of these are long gone? Click Here”

Meanwhile…

During this period (circa 1993-2005) virtually all of the large USA based promotional product factories that made everything at that time from molded custo products to keychains to lanyards, stainless steel waterbottles, clothing, et etc etc.. here in the USA, all but dissapeared.

Along with the US promo factories closings we also lost all the skilled laborers who made these goods. They either retired or went on to a new career.

“In short…Most people who worked in American factories from 1993-2005 are now doing something completely different. They are working elsewhere, the unemployment rate today is at historic lows, they have to be”

My Story

Our denim factory employed nearly 400 denim sewers and cutters. Since 2006 it is fully closed.

These skilled positions often employed multi-generations of the same family (mostly immigrants) all working at low wages. We paid low wages so that the jeans and denim goods we made were affordable to the American consumer. If we paid more we were not competitive and they went to Turkey, Eastern Europe, Asia..etc.

 

“It is now almost 2019, these formerly skilled low wage domestic factory workers have not laid denim to Juki in 14 years. They no longer are skilled in that field of manufacturing and are making more money”

Think About It This Way. If I could open a jeans factory and hire them all back at their old jobs they would A) not know what to do as they have long lost those skills or B) Have succesfully gone on to other careers.

“My best guess is that if you are directly importing as of January 1. 2019 you should expect paperwork, more paperwork, money, extra costs and assorted other BS. T&D, they’re back!”

mini tactical super bright flashlight for your logo

How do I know?

I have imported since 1993 and during the period 93/2005 we had to fill in HS codes, arrange to pay duties and brokerage everytime we imported a sample or a boatload of goods (read more) 

The paperwork was the worst as in1993 there were over 14,000 of these codes each one specifically link to a specific product. Each code triggering a different tax/duty rate.

Think of it this way, a 100% stainless steel waterbottle is one code (ie HS 18112XXXX) and has a tariff rate as of January 2019 of 25%.

However a plastic lined stainless steel waterbottle (75% stainless steel, 25% plastic) has a different HS code (ie.HS 18332XXX)…this code has a lower tariff/duty of 12% as of January. If you don’t know the new codes you will likely pay the highest tax, not the correct tax!

There are 3 main problems that you need to be on the lookout for as a Distributor.

  1. Be very very careful to do your paperwork properly as part of problem is now with the  US Customs end of the process. US Custom agents who have not dealt with T&D’s since 2005 (or who never dealt with them if they have been hired since 2005) now have to deal with over 12,000 NEW HS Codes that help them determine the cost/tax to charge you.
  2. As well, on the Chinese factory side, the people there have never had to deal with HS codes etc. The current paperwork is dead simple. The new paperwork is not.
  3. Promo suppliers in the US now have a golden opportunity to raise all of their inventory product prices for 2019 to their highest level and simply blame it all on the new Tarrifs & Duties.

 

“I expect that the promo companies that import and warehouse goods in the States will raise their prices to the highest possible amount in a profit grab and blame it all on the new Tariffs!”

What do we see happening now?

As a direct promo supplier/importer, we are already seeing a growing storm of problems, barriers. Thankfully, we have prepared for this eventuality as we saw this possibly coming over the past 12 months.

We are already seeing US customs requiring more precise documents, accurate HS coding and tons of paperwork. So much so that we have hired 2 extra people, one here in the USA and one in China to deal specifically with these issues.

Prices are going to go up, get used to it!

Unfortunately there are NO DOMESTIC manufacturers to take up the slack and fill in the supply chain as prices and products from China go up as a result of the new tax.

No USA factories are coming to rescue.

Think about TV’sTV’s have not been made in America for over 20 years.

In 2019, no business investor/entrepreneur in their right mind will ever start a USA made TV factory here. Why you ask?

Firstly way too much capital outlay,  Secondly, no skilled workforce!

TV’s and just about everything else are not about to be manufactured here!

The bit above about TV’s can be applied to tons of other industries, many that affect our promo business.

T shirts, wearables, backpacks, tools, coffee mugs etc etc are NOT GOING TO BE MADE IN THE USA and even if were to make them THEY WILL STILL BE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE IMPORT INCLUDING T&D, BY A LONGSHOT.

The occasional importer is doomed. Do you do your own importing?

The Turtle video that launched the folding reusable straw:

Occasionally a social moment or image/video profoundly changes our thinking. In the case of the folding drinking straw, it was the viral video showing a sea turtle in distress while a foot long plastic drink straw was forcibly pulled out from his nose where it was deeply embedded… OUCH! The video has received nearly 29 MILLION VIEWS!

 

Worldwide, plastic straws have been banned in over 400 jurisdictions and counting!

The above video has worked in motivating over 400 counties, cities, countries, states and provinces to ban the use of any disposable plastic drinking straws.

This ban combined with the movement towards greener marketing solutions has skyrocketed the Last Straw as the premium choice for reusable drinking straws. The Last Straw for promotion is available in quantities as low as 250 units and delivered in 10 days.
