Spooky Can Be Stylish At BLT

10/16/2012 - 4:12pm

With Halloween around the corner, it's not too soon to be thinking about your Spooktacular fashion. While a full costume complete with makeup is fantastic for a party, but what do you wear when you have to be seen during daylight hours?

At BLT Shirt Printers, we offer a happy medium between street clothes and full Goth makeup: black shirts with glow in the dark ink. We started dabbling with the style for Wakefield High School's freshman class' Black Out Day. And while those shirts won't have a creepy theme, we were inspired by the phosphorescent ink.

Promote Your Company With Custom Printed Bumper Magnets

05/11/2012 - 2:24pm

Bumper stickers are fun to see and read but they are so unfriendly to car bumpers! Reportedly, in the political sphere, a bumper sticker during election time will reach nearly 10 times as many voters as any other form of outreach. So, without question, they are a powerful marketing tool. But, how do you get them to work for your business?

First, think about a magnetic bumper sticker that is easily removed and movable from vehicle to vehicle. We printed the one in the picture for our good friends at the Canine Wingman Company.

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. In the world of golf, Bubba has been known mostly for his long drives on the course. Now he’s celebrating his Masters win, his new baby boy, and his recent purchase of a General Lee replica car made famous in the Dukes of Hazard television show. Bubba Watson is the new star of the PGA, and your company should take advantage of what’s being predicted as a renewed interest in golf since the downfall of Tiger Woods. It’s time to invest in custom printed promo items for your golf-loving customers.

While we do expect temperatures this summer to soar as they usually do, especially given the warmer weather we lucked into this winter, it’s now time to think about the promotional hats you’ll be giving away this summer. And, as usual, we at BLT Shirt Printers have some good ideas!

The Reusable Grocery Tote – A No Brainer Choice for Anyone who Shops

03/01/2012 - 11:44am

We often write about grocery totes for a number of reasons not least of which is keeping informed of local laws being passed in so many towns and cities banning the use of plastic bags by retail establishments (with pretty hefty monetary penalties for ignoring them). But we also write about them because we are truly devotees of using them. For anyone who has gone to the grocery store – and we know that’s virtually all of you reading this right now – there is truly no more efficient, painless way to cart home your groceries than a reusable grocery tote bag. Let me demonstrate something that happened to us this past weekend after a trip to our local supermarket.

Beer Inspires Loyal Brand Fans

02/23/2012 - 11:41am

We always keep an eye out for stories about brand fans. You know a brand fan when you see one – the guy/gal who is so enamored of a brand that it permeates their life. Just think about the woman you saw on the subway with the initials LV on her purse, sneakers, jacket, and even painted on her fingertips. Or the guy at the ball game last week with his face painted in the team colors, wearing his favorite player’s jersey, and with the team’s logo shaved into the hair on the side of his head. It’s amazing what brand fans will do to show love and support of their favorite brand, and we came across one who’s created an almost love letter like homage to his favorite beer. So, it got us thinking about local breweries and what they can do to inspire loyal brand fans other than brewing fantastic beer!

Car Dealerships Understand the Value of Promotional Items

02/09/2012 - 11:28am

During this time of year, between the Super Bowl commercials and the President’s Day Sales, automobile dealers and manufacturers are engaged in the hard sell to get you to buy a new car or a new “pre-owned” car. They have figured out ways to make a deal on price in every conceivable way – from no money down, to 0% interest, to cash back. When they are not pushing price they are selling their services, and using every branding tool they can dream up. In particular, car dealerships use promotional items in their marketing efforts to build customer loyalty and ensure repeat buyers.

Promotional Items Sell Products and Services – Really!

02/01/2012 - 11:23am

It has been proven time and again that promotional marketing items work if used properly as a component of an overall marketing strategy designed to support your brand. The goals are to create better recall and spur call to action by the recipients so that they will reach out to your company when they need your product or service, and not use Google.

Use Custom Branded Items to Upsell Your Customers

01/25/2012 - 11:20am

Every single time you fill an order from a customer you have an opportunity to upsell. Of course your primary responsibility is to provide to your customer exactly what she ordered in a timely way. But, once you’ve accomplished that then it’s time to think ahead. How can you get that customer to order again, and soon? Custom screen printed and embroidered branded apparel is the answer!
