Minty-Fresh, Earth-Friendly and Under $1…

Breath mints are a popular swag item, especially as ‘giveaway’ items at events, conferences and trade shows. Unfortunately, the packaging used for most mints isn’t very earth-friendly. The most inexpensive ones come in a plastic ‘credit card’ container that typically gets thrown away after the mints are gone.

That’s one of the reasons I really love AdMints. They come in a cute reclosable box that’s completely biodegradable and earth friendly. An added bonus is the ability to print all five sides of the box with your own custom full-color graphics. You can even add a “scratch off” area for extra-creative promotional marketing! Best of all, the price point on AdMints is the lowest in the industry – prices start at $.83/each plus setup charges (minimum order is 500 boxes).

My favorite filling is the sugar-free mints (spearmint or peppermint). There are between 20-25 mints per box. You can also order them filled with red hots, M&M type chocolates or Chiclet-style gum.

This is a great, basic, multipurpose swag item that can be used effectively by a wide variety of businesses. Give them away at events, leave them behind on sales calls or at networking events. You can even put a big dish of them out at the front desk or in the conference room.

Hotels could put them on pillows. Restaurants could put a box on the tray along with the check. Retailers could drop them into a client’s shopping bag as a nice little ‘bonus’ surprise. Small, useful, thoughtful, inexpensive, huge visual impact and less than a dollar. Oh, and earth friendly too! I ask you, what’s not to like??

Promote Green Living Every Day

If your company embraces sustainability and promotes green living, this may be the PERFECT calendar for you in 2009. The Going Green calendar is printed on recycled paper with vegetable inks with a binding made of recycled wire. It features beautiful photography and offers green living tips for every month of the year.

In addition to your custom imprint on the bottom tab, you may also choose to customize the ENTIRE BACK PAGE of your calendar. This is a great place to put a list of locations, information about your products or services or even your company’s mission statement.

I know 2009 seems a long way off right now, but trust me… NOW is the time to order calendars for next year. You’ll get the best pricing if you order before July 1st, and you should distribute them by October at the latest.

This particular calendar has a minimum order of 100, and is priced between $2.22-$3.64 depending on quantity.


You can purchase this and the other items featured on my blog at Just visit our ‘Collections’ section to see the ‘Items Featured on our Blog’ collection.
