Custom Sports Bottles Are an Integral Part of Every School Or Business Orientation PackageWhen putting together an orientation package for a school, university, or business; there are many promotional items to consider. However, perhaps the most integral and often overlooked item is the simple custom sports bottle. There are many positive promotional elements to a custom sports bottle such as a large print area to display a logo, emblem or organization message.

Is Your Plastic Water Bottle Poisoning You?You may not know for 20 years if your plastic water bottle is poisoning you. Right now the FDA says only that it will keep monitoring data to see if the agency needs to take regulatory action. It could be 20 or 30 years before they truly know the effects on the human body from the toxins leached from plastic water bottles. For now no serious action is being taken regarding the very serious health hazards presented by plastic water bottles, plastic food storage containers, and more. Here's why your plastic water bottle may be unsafe: Most bottled water comes in polyethylene terephthalate bottles, indicated by a number 1, PET, or PETE on the bottle's bottom. While some scientists believe that these bottles are generally safe at room temperature, when they are stored at warm temperatures, the story changes. When the bottles are warmed, they begin to quickly leach chemicals into the water. It doesn't matter if the bottles ar
How to Buy Directly From ChinaIn the Internet age, it's easy to find Chinese suppliers for your import business. Business-to-business websites such as Alibaba.com, sz-wholesale.com, okokchina.com PromosMall.com. let you search for items you're interested in buying, or you can post a purchase request. If you find a suitable Chinese vendor, you begin negotiating. Finding a supplier is no guarantee of success, though. You have to check for quality, negotiate prices and be careful that everything you import conforms to U.S. law. Verify Everything Even if the supplier you found online looks like a perfect fit, that doesn't guarantee he's legitimate. Run a background check to confirm his company exists. Look for any charges of labor or environmental violations. A research service such as Globis or China Checkup can investigate the company for you. You can also contact a legal or accounting firm in China to do the research. If the company checks out,
How to Calculate Shipping Fees from China?Calculating your shipping fees allows you to anticipate the costs involved before physically shipping a package.

All that is required are the package dimensions, weight and shipping locations Instructions 1. Measure the length, width and height of the package using a tape measure. 2.

Doing Business With ChinaThe two most over-used buzzwords in business of the last ten to fifteen years are "China's Coming" and "The internet will change everything". Curiously, it's not very often that you hear both buzzwords used together - but why not ? Using the internet to do business with China has to be one of the smartest ideas around. First of all, China has some incredible advantages in terms of trade. It has easy access to raw materials and cheap labour. Its economic base is growing and there is very little that China can't produce. Secondly, it is a massive and growing market for all sorts of products and services and with an increasing taste for western brands. These facts alone make doing business with China a very interesting proposition, let alone the fact that your competitors are already thinking about how they can lower costs and/or expand sales by doing business with China. But there are a number of drawbacks to doing face to face business
