Top 10 Markets for Wearables

Filed under: Education, Wearables

Wearables Sales ForecastAccording to the recently released Wearables Sales Forecast, imprinted apparel is predicted to generate $6.7 billion in revenue in 2014. (That was billion with a ‘b’ just in case you were reading quickly.)

Representing roughly one-third of all sales for the ad specialty industry, I’d say promotional apparel is a pretty big hitter. And it’s only getting bigger.

How’d They Do That? Imprinted Nail Polish Bottles

Filed under: Education, Fun

Aside from a Halloween or two when I was in college, I’ve never had a need for nail polish. But now that I have a daughter who’s old enough to use it, it’s starting to become part of my life. “Daddy, I want that!” Who knew Barbie had her own line of nail polish, but there it is, the Barbie logo emblazoned on real bottles of nail polish.

And that brings me to today’s blog post topic: How *do* they get those logos imprinted on nail polish bottles? This primer from Advantages magazine shows you exactly how it’s done, courtesy of supplier Diamond Cosmetics (asi/49640).

Poll Results: What’s Your Favorite Thanksgiving Pie?

Filed under: Fun, Poll Results

I love everything about pumpkins. The jack-o-lanterns, Halloween, the autumn season and even the beer. But nothing compares to the Thanksgiving pumpkin pie … at least, that’s my opinion.

Leading up to Thanksgiving 2013, we at ASICentral wanted to find out what others thought, did they feel the same love for pumpkin pies as I did? Or would some of the other traditional pies like pecan and apple be preferred? To be honest, I thought apple would kick butt and reign supreme, but what do I know about food? I still think frozen pizza is a taste sensation.

Much to my surprise, not only did the pumpkin pie win, but it got over 40% of the 231 votes. Apple? Well, let’s just say it finished a distant third.

Here are the full results to the question: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving pie?

Total Votes: 231

  • Pumpkin: 95 votes (41%)
  • Pecan: 58 votes (25%)
  • Apple: 49 votes (21%)
  • Sweet Potato: 17 votes (8%)
  • Lemon Meringue: 12 votes (5%)
