Champion Originals

Just  for you die hard Champion fans.  Champion is introducing Champion Originals: A new line that is “athletically inspired, fashionably worn”. The whole line has a softer look with a vintage feel.  Flip through the catalog above and you’ll see what I mean.

Being know for their performance and active wear lines this new line segues perfectly to fit that athleisure market that is trending now. The sweatshirt circled above would work well for early fall outings, gyms and  fitness studios, school and spirit wear, and employee appreciation gifts.

Oh and for our customers who love their henley shirts, there is an updated version in this line. The price point is awesome too making it easy to make it part of your employees fall uniforms.

While we don’t currently have any samples in the shop message us if you are interested. It will give me the perfect excuse to get some in.

Nike Golf Therma-FIT Hypervis 1/2-Zip Cover-Up

I got to see The Nike Golf Therma-FIT Hypervis cover up when our sales rep debut it a couple of months ago. I forgot all about it until one of our customers ordered one. I also forgot how nice they are.

The chevron design  is  subdued enough to work with your logo without overwhelming it. The contrasting zipper and interior color adds a pop of color making it easy to layer over your other golf gear.

It is made of 100% polyester Therma-Fit fabric which keeps it, soft, light weight and temperature regulating. (How that exactly works I am not sure but it sounds impressive. Our customer that orders them is going to keep me posted on that!)

And for the ladies it comes in a full zip style with thumb holes at the cuff for extra warmth.

Perfect for golf outings (obviously), corporate events, employee incentives and vendor gifts.

Pennant Sportwear just released their 2018 catalog with a bucket load of new products.

Vintage is where its at for Pennant in this catalog. Check out the Vintage Raglan Jersey and Vintage Henley on page 8/9. On page 10 the Vintage Stripe Jersey caught my eye. These items would be perfect for warm ups, spirit wear, and great for school stores or fund raisers for your favorite team.

They updated there sweatpants and shorts. Lots of contrast details like the sweats on page 21 and color blocking on shorts.

25oz. Wellspring Water Bottle

With all the fun summer things you have planned don’t forget the water bottle.

I see so many water bottle options in my various e-mails that sometimes I kind of stop looking. This product from Glass America, however, caught my eye. Not your typical sport water bottle, this will lend its self well to more upscale events. Right now they are on sale too which makes a win/win for everybody.

Ogio Tees and Tanks

Time to take your activities outdoors. June is here and that means lots of summer parties, 5K’s, and outdoor fund raisers. Ogio is here to help get your brand out there with style.

Ogio is all about the details: Stay cool wicking fabric that is ultra-breathable, flatlock seams for comfort, and reflective details so you can be seen. The thing I like best (and yes I have the ladies V-neck tee and love it) is that it is made of 100% poly jersey which gives it a nice soft feel. It doesn’t look or feel like your typical polyester pieces.

The price point is not that much higher that Sport Tek and well worth it if your brand demands a piece that looks the part.

We have samples of these in the shop so you can stop by and check them out. Click LOE320 and OE320 for more colors and other styles.

Are You Ready for Summer?

I know, I know  we haven’t even gotten to Memorial Day yet. Heck we haven’t even finished the full first week of May. In embroidery, screen printing, and promotional  land though we are already helping clients plan for summer events including the 4th of July.

Dress codes relax, there are company outings and employee appreciation days to look forward to. And there are milestones to celebrate. (Celebrating 50 followers on Instagram is a  totally legit reason for new hats all around.)

 

Here are some of the offerings you find when you type the word Patriotic (for example) into our Next Event promotional site. Try it and see what kind of fun ideas you can come up with. Sometimes all you need is a key word set those ideas in motion.

Looking for a sure thing? Hats, tees, head or wrist bands, picnic blankets, totes, even flip flops make perfect gifts at your company event, picnic, or anniversary celebration. Get extras for giving to your favorite clients. After all without them you wouldn’t have much reason to celebrate. (Buying more usually brings the cost down anyway so just go for it!)

Still stumped? Just give us a shout and we will give you a helping hand.

Light Up Your Life

I first saw these lanterns in an email from Amazon.com (of course). They were the deal of the day. And a deal they were. I got a set of four in case of power outages (winter was at hand). Of course this meant we had no power outages over the winter and I have yet to use them. But summer is coming and you might just find me sitting in the backyard with all four of them around me….because I can.

Once I owned them I started seeing them everywhere in our world of promotional items. And what a great way to get your brand out there.  Besides power outages they have a ton of applications: in the garage for under the hood work (auto repair shops, car lots, shuttle or cab services), in the tent on that long over due camping trip (sporting goods, outdoor events, or school clubs), or yes even sitting in your back yard on warm summer nights(everybody).

These would make a great thank you gift for Real Estate agencies or Insurance companies. Plumbers, Painters, and Electricians can use them as a thank you after a completed job.  With the phone number and your logo they can be see by your clients friends and family for instant referrals.

Here is the link to the one shown above. If you want to see more options just search for lanterns in our Next Event website and see all the other goodies out there.

It is not warm enough yet to go sit in the backyard with my lanterns so I think I will just sit in my living room with them instead…because I can.
