Howlers and Growlers

I am a big fan of large water bottles. ( Ask Dale…he teases me about the ginormous water bottle always close at hand on my desk.) Most of the larger water bottles (mine included) are the garden variety kind with the screw off, flip up, or slide lids. All perfectly functional if not a bit boring.

Last night while working on a project for a client I  stumbled upon these beauties with metal clasp lids.


Not ordinary or boring at all! The Growlers hold 64 oz., the Howlers holds 32 oz, and both  sizes come in Stainless Steel as well as  Maroon, Black Matte, and Copper. The Glass bottle holds 1 Liter and while it only comes in glass it features “an airtight, hermetic clamp closure with a rubber gasket that keeps the contents fresh”. At least that is what the blurb on it says and I have no reason to doubt.

These drink ware items are not super cheap so here is where you have to think about creative ways to use them. They can be given away at client meetings where you really are looking to make a statement or a creative first impression. Want to boost company morale? These can be given out as incentives, team building or company outings gifts. They would be perfect if your company or school offers a small retail shop.

I think the glass bottle would make creative center pieces for your next company picnic or holiday party. You could even use them as wedding decor….place settings or guest favors perhaps.

All of the above items are new and we currently don’t have samples in the shop. But as always if you need us to get some just send us a comment using our new Contact Us button on the right side of the page above our social media links.

Welcome 2017

We had a block buster fall and wanted to thank  all of our customers that made that happen. Now that we have had a chance to catch our breath, clean up the shop, and get ready for a new year we will be back to posting (we hope with a little more regularity).

In the next couple of weeks we will be uploading new catalogs to our E-Catalogs tab. There are fresh new styles we will cast a spot light on. And we will keep you updated on the latest trends in promotional items.

Here is to 2017!

New 1/4 Zips for Fall 2016

We just got some great new gear in from Sport Tek, Eddie Bauer, and Port Authority including the new 1/4 zips for fall. 1/4 zips are great for the team or corporate world to transition into the  new season. And all of these styles (JST65 excluded) come in ladies sizing.

More details about all of the above styles are available on our CompanyCasuals website.


Happy 4th of July 2016

We hope you have an escape plan for the long weekend. Hanging out in the backyard counts!

The office will be opened during that week so you can drop off and pick up orders.

Wishing you all a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

Hanes X-Temp



We have been selling the Hanes X-Temp for a little over a year now and have had some great response from our customers.

Everyone from landscapers, to contractors, to heating/oil repairmen have said how much they like the weight of these tee’s. They are easy to print on  and embroider so we like that!

If you have been thinking about a lighter weight tee for your crew for the summer these may be just the thing.

Spring Training 2016

If you follow this blog at all you know I have a thing for baseball tee’s. I think because they remind me that spring is on it’s way and opening day for the Boston Red Sox is getting closer by the minute.

District Made and Sport Tek are apparently feeling the same way..except I don’t know weather they are Red Sox fans but oh well. Here are their styling tips for the baseball tee.

Varsity 1 Varsity 2

Besides turning these ideas into high office fashion these tee’s and sweatshirts would be  great for corporate team building, spirit wear, company outings, or family gatherings.

Charles River Doggie Rain Gear

For all you with four-legged BFF’s are you ready for this cuteness?


Charles River has just introduced the New Englander Doggie Rain Jacket. It coordinates with the human version so you and your pal can step out in style.

A few of the product features include:

  • 100% wind and waterproof shell
  • Leash access opening
  • Back pocket for doggie bags and treats
  • Silver reflective trim for visibility

These jacekts are a great way to promote your pet store, grooming shop, vet practice, or specialty shop that focuses on the tourist trade.  (Think Newport, RI in the summer.)

We don’t have a sample in the shop as of yet but if you want to check one out in person drop us a line and we will make it happen.
