Take Us Out to the Ball Game – Custom Screen Printed Spirit & Cheer Promos

04/20/2012 - 2:04pm

There’s something pretty special about going to a baseball game in April. Maybe it’s the springtime look of the beautiful green grass in the outfield, or the first salty bite of a ballpark hotdog. Maybe it’s just the good feeling of wearing a short sleeve shirt and sitting in the sun after a long winter indoors. Whatever the reason, we love going to the stadium to watch our home team (Go Nats!) and we cheer them on whenever we can. Even better, we take that team spirit back to the office with our custom screen printed cheer promotional items, and you can, too!

One of the most well-known professional golf events wrapped up on Sunday and the winner was a surprise. The lucky guy who donned the coveted Masters’ green jacket is a good old boy nicknamed Bubba.

Celebrate Our Local Heroes – Buy and Wear Custom Embroidered Police and Fire Department Hats

04/10/2012 - 1:47pm

It’s such a wonderful tradition to show support of our local police and fire departments by buying and wearing baseball-style hats that are custom embroidered to celebrate these community heroes. Remember after 9-11 when NYPD and FDNY embroidered hats were worn by everyone from actors on television shows to farmers in Nebraska? We don’t need a tragedy to remember those who devote their lives to helping and protecting our communities. We can show our support by attending their various charity events, by volunteering when asked, and by wearing their branded hats.

Custom Embroidered Oxford Shirts for the Boardroom Casual Look

04/06/2012 - 1:41pm

We all are familiar with the concepts of “casual Friday” at work, and “business casual” for events like tradeshows. But there’s another category of dress that’s becoming more important in corporate America and that’s “boardroom casual” and it borrows heavily from traditional private school clothing. Think sweaters over a dress shirt and tie, and blazers. A dressy-preppy kind of look that forgoes the traditional suit, but that’s perfect for a custom embroidered corporate brand on shirts, sweaters, and ties. It’s branded dressing at its best!

With April upon us and the celebration of Earth Day, we are keenly focused on the issue of being eco-friendly. We’ve recently written about the importance of recycling, of using organic materials, and promoting the use of reusable grocery bags. We even have a special FREE embroidery offer for all customers who place orders in April. We put a lot of effort into providing eco-friendly choices to our customers who order custom screen printed and embroidered branded apparel, company uniforms, and promotional items. So we were thrilled to read about more eco-friendly clothing hitting the market and we’re talking a huge, mainstream retailer going eco-friendly and high-fashion!

Sponsoring Community Events Builds Your Company’s Brand

02/22/2012 - 11:36am

In almost every town across our great Nation, there are local volunteer groups and non-profits dedicated to improving the community. From the volunteer fire fighters to the shelters for abandoned pets to the food pantries for the homeless, these community based organizations are integral elements of a thriving town, and supporting them is the job for the locals. For local businesses, sponsoring events held by community organizations is not only good for the town, but for the company’s brand as well.
