My top three best sellers:

Ornaments: A personalized ornament makes a great holiday present for just about anyone. With so many new ornament substrates to choose from, you can’t go wrong this holiday season. Ornaments are great sellers for the holidays, and whether it’s for Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa there is something for everyone. In most cases, you already have a built-in customer base because most of the people you know already celebrate one or more of these major holidays.

Mugs: They can be a festive holiday mugor a personalized one, and of course, anything custom adds more value. What better advertisement than personalizing a mug for a co-worker, which can create a buzz that ultimately brings you orders. 


Pillows: Personalized pillows are part of a growing trend; not only do they make beautiful gifts but great money-makers as well. Whether holiday-themed or a favorite family photo pillow, they are sure to make the list of favorites for gift-givers.
