It is by far the question we are asked most often.  What are clients buying from you lately?

We've reviewed our orders from 2017 to date and below are our top sellers for 2017.  This is based on how many times these items were ordered, not by total quantity sold or by dollar amount sold.  Let us know if you would like more information on any of these!

People seem to be amazed that year in and year out our top selling item is lip balm.  That's because people use it year round; it is inexpensive and easy to deal with at trade shows.  It is our most re-ordered item also.

Koozies (and we are referring to the actual brand Koozie) may very well rival lip balm as our most ordered item.  Clients like this particular Koozie Can Holder because it offers full color imprints.


Promo Hounds does quite a bit of logo apparel.  This year the trend towards the softer t-shirts, heather t-shirts, triblends, etc. has grown even larger.  We just aren't selling as many of the standard Gildan promo t-shirts any more.  These two below, our Port Authority Fan Favorite and our Bella Ringspun Cotton t-shirt, have been most popular.  The Fan Favorite offers a little more fuller cut in the softer style.  It also comes in youth, ladies and various other styles.
