Superior Promos Provides Promotional Products Which Highlight the Danger of  Texting While Driving. All of the promotional products and promotional items were provided by www.SuperiorPromos.com to one of our most cherished customers The Miami Beach Coalition for a Drug-Free Community.

Article by DOROTHY M. ATKINS of the Miami Herald

School officials have a new message for high school students going to the prom this weekend: Texting behind the wheel can be just as dangerous as drinking and driving.

The Miami Beach Coalition for a Drug-Free Community partnered with local law enforcement and schools to present the award-winning “You Only Live Once” Anti-DUI program in the parking lot of the Miami Beach Convention Center on Friday. High school students from Miami Beach and Hialeah watched as teens acted out a story of a group of friends whose lives changed after one drunk partier crashed his car killing his girlfriend and injuring others.

The performance included cameos by local firefighters, who extracted the victims from the wrecked vehicles, and Miami Beach police, who performed a mock roadside test on the driver of the vehicle.

The scene has been acted out in front of high school students nationwide for 16 years, but this year local officials framed the story with a new message: Texting while driving can create the same kind of impairment caused by alcohol.

Before the event, organizers distributed fans to high school students that said, “I’m a fan of not driving distractedly, STOP TEXTING” on one side. On the other it warned students not to drink and drive, because “YOLO,” an acronym for the phrase “you only live once.”

During the assembly, Michael Grieco, a Miami criminal defense attorney and former county prosecutor, warned students that it doesn’t take much to be considered impaired, he said. All it takes is one text or one drink.

“Get the idea of drunk driving out of your mind,” Grieco said. “All you need to be is impaired.”

Earlier this week, Gov. Rick Scott signed a ban on texting while driving into law. The ban prohibits drivers from using cellphones to text or e-mail behind the wheel in most circumstances. Under the law, police can pull over texting drivers as long as they’ve committed another infraction, like swerving or speeding, and if caught, the violator is fined $30.

Grieco argues that the law doesn’t do enough to stop drivers from picking up their phone to send a message. The fee is not high enough to prevent infractions and requiring police to only pull over drivers if they are committing other infractions makes it difficult for them to enforce the new law. Under the ban, drivers can continue to use phones for navigation, weather and to listen to the radio, and they can also use talk-to-text devices such as the iPhone’s Siri.

“It falls way short of where it needs to be,” Grieco said.

Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death among teenagers in the country and they are three times as likely to be involved in a fatal crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2011, the number of fatalities related to a car accidents dropped by about 2 percent since 2010, according to a report released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Meanwhile, teen car crash fatalities increased by 7 percent during the same period.

Just-Released Study Proves that Promotional Products Still Work

May 30th, 2013

Recently, the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) released a study conducted in November of 2012. It was conducted at an international airport in New York, and asked random travellers if they had received promotional items within the last 12 months. 70% of them said yes, and were invited to answer a 22-question survey, in which answers were entered into a tablet computer.

PPAI had conducted studies in 1991, 1999, and 2004. Those studies, along with two from major US universities, have been quoted numerous times by numerous people in the promotional products industry. However, the current era is one in which the Internet has changed how everyone does business, and there wasn’t a current study.

Consequently, many business owners were beginning to doubt whether promotional products were still as effective in this era as they were previously. According to the survey, the answer is a resounding “yes.”

The numbers in the current study were almost identical to numbers in previous studies. Almost every study ever done about promotional products has produced the same conclusions as the others, and has had numbers within traditional margins for error when compared to the others. In other words, virtually every study ever done on promotional products has produced the same results.

The recent study was broken into two main parts: recall of promotional products and usage of promotional products. The numbers led to the conclusion that promotional products are as effective as they were 21 years ago, and that they provide the highest amount of ad impressions compared to money spent.

Seventy percent of the travellers had a promotional product in their possession. 70% of those said they had at least two in their possession. 88% remembered the name of the company who gave them the gift, compared to 71% who remembered the name of even one company who advertised in a magazine they had read the previous week.

Eighty percent said they have multiple promotional products, some as many as ten. Items were kept more often for being useful than any other reason. Pens, computer products, health products, and safety products were the most common categories. Respondents also kept leisure products, travel accessories, and sporting goods, but only if they thought the products were attractive.

The products that were used most often, which would make them the most effective at producing advertising impressions, were computer products, electronic accessories, planners, and calendars

APR 9, 2013 – BY COUNSELOR

As part of an effort to build greater financial strength, American Apparel (asi/35297) announced Friday that it successfully completed refinancing of its secured debt. The Counselor Top 40 supplier recently closed a private offering of the $206 million principal amount of its 13% senior secured notes due in 2020. It also entered into a new $35 million five-year asset-backed revolving credit deal with Capital One Bank. American Apparel used the net proceeds from the offering of notes, together with borrowings from the new credit line, to repay and terminate its prior credit facilities with Lion Capital LLC and Crystal Financial LLC.

Under the five-year agreement with Capital One, first lien borrowing costs will be significantly reduced – one of a number of financial advantages for the Los Angeles-based manufacturer of fashion basics. “Our new debt arrangements, coupled with improved financial performance, will provide added flexibility in delivering upon our operating plan for 2013 and beyond,” said Dov Charney, American Apparel’s chairman and CEO. “This financing effort will allow us to further focus our efforts in driving profitability for the benefit of all our stakeholders.”

After talk of bankruptcy circulated around the supplier in 2011 following an $86 million loss in 2010, American Apparel has orchestrated a steady rebound in its operations. While the company’s overall revenues have also grown, its performance specifically in the North American ad specialty market showed marked improvement: revenue increased 7.3% to nearly $97 million. That gain followed a 2011 in which sales rose 1.8% to $90.2 million.

“We look forward to building our relationship with American Apparel to help position the company for continued market leadership, growth and success,” said Michael Burns, senior vice president and asset-based lending regional manager at Capital One Bank.

Today’s incentive programs are incorporating state-of-the-art tools and techniques such as social media, community service and gaming as a way to attract and maintain interest, according to the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2012 Fall Pulse Survey of incentive users.

Providing the industry’s most reliable barometer by presenting a current snapshot of the latest trends, the IRF Pulse Survey shows that merchandise, gift card and individual travel programs are benefiting from current economic conditions as companies plan fewer group incentive travel programs. Additionally, North American and Caribbean destinations remain the favored selections as opposed to overseas destinations, and, in terms of favored merchandise, the study found that electronics, golf items, luggage and housewares remain the most popular rewards.

Additional highlights from the IRF’s Fall 2012 Pulse Survey:

The average incentive program in the fall of 2012:
•         Is less likely to incorporate a social media and/or CSR component (compared to last fall)
•         Is more likely to incorporate a gaming component (up six percentage points)

The average merchandise/noncash incentive program in the fall of 2012:
•         Will be positively affected by the economy (50%)
•         Will have increased merchandise award values (36%)
•         Will offer more gift cards (31%)
•         Will include these types of rewards: Electronics (79%), Golf Items (68%), Luggage (66%) and Housewares (62%)
•         Will be a point-based program (82%)
•         Will have a slightly higher budget (42%)

The average incentive travel program in the fall of 2012:
•         Most likely remains a domestic destination rather than overseas (45%)
•         Increasingly involves the company Procurement department (38%)
•         Will have essentially the same budget (48%)
•         Will include a destination in North America (53%) or the Caribbean (46%)
•          Will involve more individual travel (32%)

Buoyed by positive economic signals and a better lending climate, half of U.S. small-business owners are planning to make investments in the second quarter of this year, according to the latest Scorecard survey released by firm SurePayroll. The investments, data shows, will likely come in the areas of new staff, technology and marketing as companies look to expand sales and boost their efficiency.

The SurePayroll survey also showed business owners are increasingly hopeful about selling and the overall economy. Nearly 70% of respondents were optimistic in their economic outlook in March, up from 59% in February. About 80% of small-business owners say the first quarter either matched or exceeded their expectations and roughly 50% expect results in Q2 to surpass gains made in Q1.

Despite a positive national employment trend, SurePayroll’s survey results indicate that hiring and paycheck numbers are not improving dramatically, however. Last month, data showed hiring fell 0.2% and paychecks dipped 0.1%, with particular weakness in cities such as Boston, Denver and Las Vegas. Many small-business owners say they’re still facing tepid consumer demand and they worry about the effects of higher taxes and the rising cost of health care.

-Our take… Promotional Products and Promotional Items from SuperiorPromos.com make the best long term investment for businesses of all sizes!
