Our Best Selling Promotional Automotive Accessories
Americans spend an ever increasing amount of time in their automobiles. The automobile has become like a home on wheels, where we require many of the comforts of home while we drive and our passengers relax along the way. At times, these comforts require the driver to remove their attention from the road while reaching for things that are not easily accessible, creating a potentially hazardous driving situation. The first non-driving accessory put into automobiles was the car radio, invented by Paul Galvin. Galvin coined his new invention as the "Motorola" back in 1929. The name Motorola lives on in the automobile but is now found more frequently in the cellular phone, on board virtually every American vehicle. The first cup holder was introduced into the automotive world some time in the late 1970s. Cup holders have become an essential feature of every passenger car sold in the world and now the question is often asked "How many cup holders does this model have?"
Modern automobiles have many creature comforts found in the home. Drivers and passengers need promotional accessories to use these convenience features. Video screens, cell phones, CD and DVD players, drinks at hand; all create a need for products to enhance these comforts of the new age of auto travel.
The first promotional accessory for the automobile was the registration and insurance card holder. An inexpensive, yet useful product, it housed these important documents and was usually given out by insurance agents when they wrote the owner's insurance policy. Inexpensive, easy to mail and a reminder of the provider's business name and contact information, they quickly became popular giveaways. Then came the "Litter Bag”, another inexpensive promotional item that had a cut out notch to fit over a dashboard knob. America 's highways became cleaner as drivers and passengers had a handy reusable pouch to hold their litter. Dashboard coin holders also made of vinyl were a big hit in metropolitan area where tolls and metered parking made the need for coins to be in the car at all times. Soon after, imprinted tire gauges, and promotional safety kits were given to drivers by parts suppliers, service establishments and dealers to promote good will. The most popular imprinted car accessory was the key chain. Once automobiles required keys to enter the doors and start the engines, key rings became a perfect promotional product for any business in the automotive field. Every car owner needed at least two of them. Ice scrapers are inexpensive to produce and useful in most of the U.S. Millions were and still are given away with the logo of the service supplier boldly printed with a reminder of their brand. Drivers were grateful to have these on those cold winter mornings.
As fast food became the choice for folks on the road, the travel mug and sport bottle became the biggest promotional auto accessory in terms of gross sales dollars. From inexpensive plastic cups to high class insulated stainless steel lined tumblers, they are welcomed gifts. We can now enjoy refreshments safely, without distraction from the road or hazardous spills.
Other popular promotional accessories include cell phone holders, imprinted non slip gel dash mats, window sun screens, travel pillows, visor organizers and CD cases to name a few.
As we spend more and more time on the road, traveling to remote destinations, the auto safety kit has become a popular automotive gift. Packed with first aid essentials, blankets, emergency food, light, battery chargers and more, they are gifts that say that the giver cares about the safety of their customers.
Last but not least, are promotional bumper stickers and decals, which many drivers are proud to display on their vehicles. Whether for political preferences, destination resorts, environmental issues or moral beliefs, they can be seen on millions of vehicles either singly or in groups. They offer the ultimate in advertising visibility at low cost per exposure.
