Trend Alert! Hats with Leather Patches

Back in the day all the classic trucker caps sported patches. And of course what is old is new again. The patch trend on hats is making a big come back.

Leather and sublimated options add a fun new twist to hat patches.

Without sounding like a broken record (which we are going to anyway…) hats are probably the BEST form of advertising. And with these new patch options you can really stand out from the crowd.

Need some ideas on how you can use this trend with your brand, project, or upcoming event? Listed below are some ideas to help get your creative mind cranking away.

  • Design a new twist on your logo and run the hats as a “limited edition”. If people know these won’t always be available they are more likely to purchase it as soon as they see it.
  • Want a big crowd at your event? Use the same ‘limited edition” concept and let everyone know that the only way they can score the hat is to attend the event.
  • Use them as employee incentives or to mark milestones. For example you just produced your millionth widget. Get everyone a hat to mark the occasion and show your appreciation of a job well done.
  • Don’t forget family events like reunions or weddings or even milestone birthdays.

If you need more information just give us a shout.

 

Venue Home Plate Polos

It is Spring! Spring training has started! And in honor of spring training we are highlighting the Venue Home Plate polo by New Era.

Trying to find the balance between a not too expensive but well made polo that your crew can wear and look good in all spring and summer can be a challenge. New Era products, we find, fits that niche well.

These polos are moisture wicking (63/37 cotton/poly pique) and at 5.6 oz make the transition from a cool office to the summer heat nicely. The polos feature embossed New Era taped neck and side vents and engraved buttons to dress them up a bit. Both mens and womens style have drop tail hems…

and the ladies style come with a longer 6 button placket and an inverted back pleat.

The Venue Home Plate polos will hold up under heat for heat transfers or screen printing and will look equally nice with an embroidered logo.

Looks like New Era has your bases covered for your uniform needs.

 

Break Out of the Uniform Rut!

A GOOD UNIFORM IS A STATEMENT. It tells your employees they’re a part of a team, tells your clients what to expect, and most importantly, a good uniform tells your story.”

Wish we would could claim credit for that statement. The credit goes to the folks who bring you some of your favorite brands like Nike, New Era, and Bella + Canvas. Uniforming is their business and they do it well.

Modern companies are leaving behind  the “one size fits all” approach. They are doing away with the stiff, stuffy, and restrictive pieces and replacing them with pieces that fit today’s lifestyles. Polos with moisture wicking properties and tees with a soft feel and flattering shape are the new norm. Take a look at some of these ideas and see how by mixing up tried and true pieces you end up with a fresh look.

By picking one or two colors that compliment your brand these ideas show that you can mix a polo shirt with heels,  a 1/4 zip with a tie, and pull off a look  that will work across the diversity of generations that make up your work force.

For more inspiration stop by the office to pick up your copy of this:

Lots of cool ideas to help you rethink and get out of your uniform rut. These are only available in print. If you can’t swing by the shop to pick up your copy contact us and we can mail one out to you.

 

 

 

Flexfit / Yupoong 2019

The new Flexfit catalog has arrived.

We are finding across all brands Trucker Caps are continuing to trend. Flexfit is right in the mix with new styles and fabrics.  They are adding caps with these materials geared toward performance.

They are also keeping things trendy with their Trucker Melange hat….

and their Contrast Stitch “Dad” hat.

Don’t let the word “Dad” discourage you from considering this hat. We find it sells well across a broad market. And we love the retro vibe it brings to any logo.

If you are looking for something really different check out their Tartan cap.

While the price point for Flexfit is a bit more don’t be afraid to put a little investment into these hats. Hats are one of the best forms of advertisement and if you find a style that really compliments your brand it is a financial win. People will love the hats, wear the hats, and give your brand tons of visibility.

For future reference we have added this catalog under our E-Catalog tab which has other great resources for you to check out when the mood strikes.

Late Winter Trends

About this time of year we start looking forward to see what new spring trends are headed our way. If you, like us, are burned out looking at dark heavy duty sweatshirts this post should grab your attention.

First off, lets throw in some color to liven up the Mid-February blues.

Next Level’s Festival Collection is sporting spring colors in soft easy fitting  tees. Currently we are just enjoying looking at the lively color palette. A nice break from  carbon heather and black!

And on that note, if you taking a break from all black, Pennant is going opposite with their White Collection.

We love the clean look of the white but inevitably they day we wear white is the day we have something with tomato sauce for dinner!

If  white is too dangerous a route to go but you still want to break out and do something a little more edgy, Bella + Canvas is your  brand.

Crop tops, sweatshirts with cut outs, relaxed tanks, Bella + Canvas has come a long way from their tiny ribbed tees of 10 years ago. And they offer a section just for kids too.

All of the new catalogs for Next Level, Pennant, and Bella + Canvas are up under our E-Catalogs tab for easy reference. And of course for inspiration.
