The New Power Suit featuring New Era

A few weeks ago I did a post called Putting It Together about how to approach setting  up your brand or  uniform  with a cohesive look. Ironically, the next day after I published that post this appeared in my in box.

This is New Era’s take on uniforming, highlighting their new fashion brand that  arrived in late winter. With these combos they show that you don’t have to have a “traditional” (polo, jacket, tie, etc…) uniform to  achieve a pull together professional look.

The New Era catalog is full of other great ideas to help you think outside the normal uniforming box. Click the text in red to see the catalog or stop in the shop and pick up a printed copy. We have plenty for the taking.

Soundwave Audio Bottle

Yes you read that correctly. A water bottle and blue tooth speaker in one.  Being able to carry your tunes and beverage in one hand means you are a pop up party waiting to happen.

Ash City introduces the Tech-Shell Vest

Ash City has come out with a new Tech-Shell vest as part of their CORE 365 line.

This could be the best new thing to up your golf game or up your golf game giveaways at your next event.

The style comes in both men’s and ladies’ cut with classic colors to compliment your brand. The ladies’ style has a front and back princess seam for a flattering fit.

Both styles offer water resistance and windsmart technology. ( I have no clue what windsmart technology is but suffice it to say it will block the wind on those breezy spring days on the golf course…or where every you may find yourself on those breezy spring days.) They also sport a chin rash guard and a reflective toggle on the zipper.

If you are not a vest person but like the concept click here for the companion jacket.

The Belmont Travel Tumbler

We (really just me as Dale is down South at the moment) are quite impressed with the Belmont 20oz Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler. It is one of those items that looks good, works well, and makes for  brand visibility at a great price point. More importantly it is a gift that folks will really use. The thing I liked best about it was the lid. The lid had a tight fit and didn’t leave me feeling like one accidentally tip over and it would come flying off. I also liked the drink tab you slide open (or closed). It requires a little bit of pressure but it made me feel, again, it won’t coming flying open on you when you are not ready for it. My current travel mug sometimes leaves me wary that my car interior will be wearing my tea if I take a corner too sharply. Not that I do but well…you know how that goes….

Features include:

  • 18/8 Stainless steel construction
  • Double wall insulated
  • Keeps beverage hot for up to 12 hours or cold for up to 12 hours
  • Tapered bottom fits cup holders
  • Clear plastic push-on lid with sliding drink opening
  • FDA certified
  • Hand wash only

Pictured is a one color logo but if your brand has more that one not to worry. We are currently working on the same item (in red) with a client of ours that has 4 colors in their logo. The proof looks great and we can’t wait to see the tumblers in person. Bonus point: the price  doesn’t go up much for more than one color. Always nice to hear while doing your advertising/promotional budget.

Gift Giving 2017 Part 4

This gift guide from Snugz USA should get those gift giving ideas flowing.

I picked this catalog to feature because it has some cool products that will translate well across different industries.

Has your company had a record year in sales and your group deserves some R&R time? Flip to page 8 for some relaxing gift set ideas that will leave your employees  ready to jump into 2018 with renewed energy. Looking for a deluxe set to thank your clients for that record year? Check out page 21. Your gift recipient is sure to be thankful.

If stocking stuffers are more your thing pages 28/29 has some practical and yet fun ways to get your brand out there.  I think the dye sublimated socks are a wonderful idea. One size fits all, they are an unusual gift , and they  can be reused again and again so your brand continues to take center stage.

Sungz has some really wonderful ideas for those of you in the Health and Wellness fields. Page 18/19 has great essential oil and bath salts sets. Page 22 has smaller essential oil combo packs in attractive package making it a truly outstanding gift idea.

Questions or need help with more ideas? Give us a shout. And while you are ruminating on ideas remember to allow about a two week turn around on most products. No need to incur rush charges if you don’t have to.

Gift Giving 2017 Part 3

While we are still excited about offering North Face gear we realize that some of our customers need other options at a slightly better price point.

Eddie Bauer gear to the rescue.

Eddie Bauer’s cozy jackets and durable ripstop duffel bags make an easy choice for employee and customer appreciation gifts. They also make great raffle or auction prizes. And the price point won’t break the bank!
