did you know...

In 1893 at the Chicago World’s Fair, the Heinz Company we know today debuted their now famous Pickle Pin!  It is said the founder H.J. Heinz wasn’t happy with his location at the fair and sent his staff out to drop white tokens all around the fair.  The tokens directed individuals to the Heinz booth for a FREE prize...Once there the patrons tasted the food and received their free pickle pin!  It is said that they gave away a million pickle pins by the end of the fair!  With that kind of success the Heinz Company is still giving out the pins today!  

This isn’t the first promotional campaign, but it is one of the longest running.  Ever since, people have been putting their names on thousands of items that we now call swag, tchotchkes  and the fancy ad specialty items.

If you want to tell your company story through swag, It's Me JillG can make it happen. 

que the genie…you ask and you will receive…..
