Columbus, NE (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
CAS Enterprises, LLC announced today its intention to expand its current product offering to include nearly 800,000 promotional products. After attending the ASI Show in Las Vegas, Nevada and being exposed to a wide variety of unique promotional products, promotional items, customized promos, and advertising specialties, Clark Swihart, President of CAS, became sold on the industry.
"I was blown away by the insane number of products that could be customized with your company's logo," Clark exclaimed. These promotional products include personalized pens and mechanical pencils, customized mugs, decals, magnets, calendars, silicone bracelets, T-Shirts, key chains and tags, event tyvek wristbands, corporate gifts, custom printed lanyards (woven, tube, and polyester), spirit items, awards, water bottles, and tote bags to name just a few.
Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI) released results of its annual advertising specialty industry sales analysis, indicating revenues topped $18.6 billion in 2006 - up 4.5 percent from 2005 and a new record.
Spending on advertising specialties was almost twice as large as Internet display advertising, nearly five times greater than outdoor advertising and more than cable TV advertising for the same period and outpaced the 3.4% growth rate for the United States GDP.
The exclusive annual analysis, conducted by ASI, shows that growth in 2006 was driven by a healthy economy in North America and by increased interest from businesses in using advertising specialties as an alternative to other forms of advertising and as an integral part of their marketing campaigns.
"The advertising specialty industry is extremely robust and as this analysis indicates, has set an unprecedented record of continued growth and increased sales for the last four years," said Timothy M. Andrews, president of ASI.
Melodee Brunken, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, added, "All these new promotional items are an excellent complement to our current line of products." CAS Enterprises' website, TheAwristocrat.com, currently offers Custom Silicone Rubber Bracelets and Personalized Wristbands (debossed, embossed, printed, laser-engraved, and blank), Foam Hands (we're number one #1 foam fingers), Foam Spirit Sticks ("Noodles"), Custom Lanyards (Woven, Tube, and Polyester), Slap Bracelets (Slap Wraps), Custom Leather Wristbands, and other unique school and church fundraising ideas for fundraisers, raising awareness, and raising funds (money).
