Who Needs Promotional Maglites?

If you have customers or employees, you need Promotional Maglites.

Promotional Maglitess® Come In Multiple Colors
Promotional Maglites® Come In Multiple Colors

When you give these to your customers, they will keep them (with your logo) for many years. These gifts are appreciated and useful. Can you say that about any other kind of advertising, like newspapers, tv ads, and google ads?

Your employees are another target group for this kind of gift. Maglites will show them that you care enough to give a quality business gift. They give your employees a better sense of belonging to the “team”.

77% of the recipients of business gifts said that a product’s usefulness is the main reason that they kept it.

85% of the same group remember who gave them this special gift.

(From a study by Amsterdam Promo Products).

If a customer or employee keeps your Maglite 10 years, your cost for that advertising is about one cent per day!

Who Can’t Use Promotional Maglights?

Promotional Maglights can be used by anyone who has 2 hands, because it takes

2 hands to turn one on. So, unfortunately, a few people can’t enjoy the high quality of this American-Made flashlight. Even people who misspell the word Maglites, like I did in the title, can use this amazing aluminum frame flashlight. Ever since 1979, Anthony Maglica has been making these torches in Ontario California. Now his factory has grown to one million square feet (as of 2017).


The Lufkin Tape Measure is BACK

This company had a hard time making enough diameter tapes to go around in the year 2022. Why? It may have had something to do with labor or materials. We never heard the final answer. Some of the parts of the Lufkin Tape Measure come from China, and some parts come from Mexico.

Finally, by the end of 2022, all of our back orders were satisfied. Some of our customers had been waiting since December 2021. Since the end of 2022, we have been able to get enough inventory of these tapes to fill all the orders that come in. 2023 was normal, and so is 2024 so far.
